Hurricane forecasters will soon have a new tool to better understand and forecast storm intensity. A constellation of eight microsatellites, called NASA’s Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System mission, or CYGNSS, got a boost into Earth orbit at 8:37 a.m. EST today, Dec. 15, 2016, aboard an Orbital ATK Pegasus XL rocket.
The unique, air-launched vehicle was carried aloft by Orbital’s modified L-1011 aircraft, “Stargazer,” which took off from the Skid Strip runway at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida and deployed the three-stage Pegasus XL rocket at a predetermined drop point 39,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean and about 110 nautical miles east-northeast of Daytona Beach.
NASA’s F-18 support aircraft was used to provide live coverage of the Orbital ATK L-1011 air-launch of its Pegasus XL rocket carrying CYGNSS. This photo was taken by Armstrong videographer, Lori Losey, as the AFRC F-18 chased Orbital’s L-1011 carrier aircraft.

NASA is assessing the feasibility of adding a crew to the first integrated flight of the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1). NASA is building new deep space capabilities to take humans farther into the solar system than we have ever traveled, and ultimately “Our priority is to ensure the safe and effective execution of all our planned exploration missions with the Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket,” said Gerstenmaier. “This is an assessment and not a decision as the primary mission for EM-1 remains an uncrewed flight test.” #space #NASA #rocket #sls #journeytomars

The new AMG GT R "The Beast of The Green Hell".
The Beast of The Green Hell delivers the best time on the Green Hell with 7 minutes and 10.92 seconds.
The fastest lap ever recorded with a Sports Car from Sport Auto (driven from a non race driver) on the Nordschleife. Congratulations to the whole @mercedesamg team for this outstanding archievment.
Mercedes-AMG GT R a member of the AMG GT-Family.
The AMG M178 4.0L biturbo engine in the AMG GT R has an output of 430kW (585hp). The peak torque of 700Nm is available between 1,900 and 5,500 rpm. The AMG 4.0L V8 engine features the tried and tested twin turbochargers, which are not mounted on the outside of the cylinder banks but rather inside the V configuration – experts call it a “hot inside V”. This basic principle of the new AMG V8 family has been further optimised for the AMG GT R. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission configured in a transaxle layout at the rear axle has likewise been extensively revised by the AMG developers to make the transmission even more suitable for the racetrack. Drivers can tailor the AMG GT R to their personal preferences using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller. Various modes are available: “C” (Comfort), “S” (Sport), “S+” (Sport Plus) and “I” (Individual). The “RACE” mode optimally adjusts the shift strategy of the dual clutch transmission to the needs of racetrack usage.

🌕🚀Would you go? SpaceX just said it plans to send two people around the moon next year.

Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies, aka SpaceX, is sending two private citizens around the moon in 2018.
The company said on Monday the individuals have already paid a “significant deposit” to do a moon mission. It said it will conduct health and fitness tests and begin initial training later this year. SpaceX said this would be the first time humans travelled to deep space in 45 years.

This picture was taken in 1840 and is one of the first ever pictures of the moon taken by Dr J W Draper of New York.
