From the International Space Station, Expedition 25 Commander Doug Wheelock and Flight Engineers Shannon Walker and Scott Kelly discussed life and work aboard the orbital laboratory with students gathered at the Department of Education in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 23. The event attracted a number of dignitaries, including Education Secretary Arne Duncan and NASA’s Associate Administrator for Education, astronaut Leland Melvin. Wheelock and Walker will return to Earth Thanksgiving Day with Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin for a landing in their Soyuz TMA-19 spacecraft on the steppe of Kazakhstan. Kelly will become station commander during a Change of Command ceremony Wednesday and remain on the complex until March.
NASA Ending Space Shuttle Missions After 30 Years of Flights
The U.S. Space Shuttle Discovery is set to lift off from Florida on November 1 for a mission to the International Space Station. It will be one of the final missions for the shuttle; NASA is ending the program and will retire its remaining fleet of the reusable spacecraft next year. Our correspondent has more on how the US space agency is charting a new course for future human space exploration.
A large number of ex high ranking officals including air traffic controllers, ex secret op. officers, commercial pilots, numorous military defence specialists with top secret clearance, people who had access to very sensitive documents
lieutenants, ex commanders in the u.s airforce, astronauts,etc… all going befor ethe national press club to discuss what their experiences have been regarding u.f.o’s and all are willing to go before congress to testify under oath.. never before has such a group come forward..
this is a must see it is long.. extremely informative and enlightening. This video was uploaded by centralelements.com
NASA | Dust Simulations Paint Alien’s View of the Solar System
Dust ground off icy bodies in the Kuiper Belt, the cold-storage zone that includes Pluto and millions of other objects, creates a faint infrared disk potentially visible to alien astronomers looking for planets around the sun. Neptune’s gravitational imprint on the dust is always detectable in new simulations of how this dust moves through the solar system. By ramping up the collision rate, the simulations show how the distant view of the solar system might have changed over its history.
The Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) is one of the first places that scientists turn when volcanoes, wildfires, pollution plumes, dust storms and many other phenomena—both natural and manmade—make an appearance. The network of ground-based instruments, called sun photometers, measures the many tiny particles blowing about in the atmosphere called aerosols. The particles are often impossible to see with human eyes, but AERONET’s sensors can detect their presence by measuring subtle fluctuations in sunlight as the particles reflect and scatter the sun’s rays.
Boeing said Wednesday that it was entering the space tourism business, an announcement that could bolster the Obama administration’s efforts to transform the National Aeronautics and Space Administration into an agency that focuses less on building rockets and more on nurturing a commercial space industry.
The flights, which could begin as early as 2015, would most likely launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida to the International Space Station. The Obama administration has proposed turning over to private companies the business of taking NASA astronauts to orbit, and Boeing and Bigelow Aerospace of Las Vegas won an $18 million contract this year for preliminary development and testing of a capsule that could carry seven passengers.
Expedition 24 Flight Engineers Tracy Caldwell Dyson, Shannon Walker and Doug Wheelock discussed their mission with Voice of America and ABC News during a pair of in-flight interviews on Sept. 14. Caldwell Dyson is scheduled to return to Earth on Sept. 23, to complete more than five months in space.
Spalio 6–8 d. Lietuvoje įvyks pirmoji tarptautinė kosmoso konferencija „KEDP2010: Kosmoso ekonomika daugiapoliame pasaulyje“, kurioje patirtimi ir pasiekimais dalinsis net 30 kosmoso organizacijų, tokių kaip Nacionalinė aeronautikos ir kosmoso administracija (angl. NASA, JAV), Europos kosmoso agentūra (angl. ESA), Europos kosmoso politikos institutas (angl. ESPI), Jungtinių Tautų Kosmoso reikalų biuras (angl. UNOOSA), atstovai.
Two asteroids, several meters in diameter and in unrelated orbits, will pass within the Moon’s distance of Earth on Wednesday, September 8th. The Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson Arizona discovered both objects on the morning of September 5 during their routine monitoring of the skies. The Minor Planet Center in Cambridge Massachusetts first received the observations Sunday morning, determined preliminary orbits and concluded that both objects would pass within the distance of the Moon about three days after their discovery. Near Earth asteroid 2010 RX30 is estimated to be 10 to 20 meters in size and will pass within 0.6 lunar distances of Earth (about 248,000 km) at 9:51 Greenwich standard time (5:51 am EDT) Wednesday. The second object, 2010 RF12, estimated to be 6 to 14 meters in size will pass within 0.2 lunar distances (79,000 km) a few hours later at 21:12 Greenwich standard time (5:12 pm EDT). Both objects should be observable near closest approach with moderate sized amateur telescopes. Although neither of these object has a chance of hitting Earth, a ten meter-sized near-Earth asteroid from the undiscovered population of about 50 million would be expected to pass almost daily within a lunar distance, and one might strike Earth’s atmosphere about every ten years on average.
Solar Probe Plus, a new NASA mission to visit and study the sun closer than ever before, is officially underway. The spacecraft will plunge directly into the sun’s atmosphere at approximately 4 million miles from the surface into a region no other spacecraft has ever encountered.
Desert Test Proves Awesome Power of NASA’s New Rocket Motor
NASA scientists are reporting success. They have been test-firing the largest and most powerful rocket motor ever designed for space flight. The Development Motor-2 is the most powerful solid rocket motor ever built.
