MOST RECENT

1994 - NASA extends an invitation to Roscosmos in the development of the International Space Station. The US Space Shuttle would begin flying several missions to the Russian MIR space station, installing a docking mechanism that allowed the vehicles to join and American Astronauts to visit and gain knowledge of long duration living aboard an orbital outpost. Construction of the ISS would begin in 1998.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station managed to capture this image of Europe at night as they orbited 230 miles (370 kilometres) overhead. Canadarm2 was also captured, celebrating its 17th-year anniversary after being installed on the same day in 2001.

(Astrônomos vêem erupção distante como buraco negro destrói estrela)

Pela primeira vez, os astrônomos imaginaram diretamente a formação e a expansão de um jato de material ejetado quando a poderosa gravidade de um buraco negro supermassivo rasgou uma estrela que se aproximava muito do monstro.
Os cientistas acompanharam o evento com telescópios infravermelhos e de rádio, incluindo o Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) da National Science Foundation e o Telescópio Espacial Spitzer da NASA, em um par de galáxias em colisão chamado Arp 299. As galáxias estão a cerca de 150 milhões de anos-luz da Terra no centro de uma das galáxias um buraco negro 20 milhões de vezes mais massivo que o Sol despedaçou uma estrela mais que o dobro da massa do Sol, desencadeando uma cadeia de eventos que revelaram detalhes importantes do encontro violento. Os pesquisadores também usaram observações do Arp 299 feitas pelo telescópio espacial Hubble da NASA antes e depois do surgimento da erupção.
Apenas um pequeno número dessas mortes estelares, chamadas de eventos de ruptura das marés, ou TDEs, foram detectados. Os teóricos sugeriram que o material retirado da estrela condenada forma um disco giratório ao redor do buraco negro, emitindo raios-X e luz visível intensos, e também lança jatos de material para fora dos pólos do disco quase à velocidade da luz.
"Nunca antes pudemos observar diretamente a formação e a evolução de um jato de um desses eventos", disse Miguel Perez-Torres, do Instituto Astrofísico da Andaluzia, em Granada, na Espanha, e autor de um artigo descrevendo a descoberta.

Для многих выходные дни летом - это обязательные поездки за город 🌃
За городом можно сбежать от городской суеты и светового загрязнения ☄️
Вдоволь насладится тишиной, свежим воздухом и астрофотографией🤓
А как проходят ваши выходные на даче?

“Orbital decay” is the term that we use for how orbits decrease in energy due to the drag acting on the craft by trace gases!

Curiosity's Dusty Self

Winds on Mars can't actually blow spacecraft over. But in the low gravity, martian winds can loft fine dust particles in planet-wide storms, like the dust storm now raging on the Red Planet. From the martian surface on sol 2082 (June 15), this self-portrait from the Curiosity rover shows the effects of the dust storm, reducing sunlight and visibility at the rover's location in Gale crater. Made with the Mars Hand Lens Imager, its mechanical arm is edited out of the mosaicked images. Curiosity's recent drill site Duluth can be seen on the rock just in front of the rover on the left. The east-northeast Gale crater rim fading into the background is about 30 kilometers away. Curiosity is powered by a radioisotope thermoelectric generator and is expected to be unaffected by the increase in dust at Gale crater. On the other side of Mars, the solar-powered Opportunity rover has ceased its operations due to the even more severe lack of sunlight at its location on the west rim of Endeavour crater.

The Russian Space Agency never ends there! After TitanSwimmer now this,The Super-Earthwalker or SEW is being made specifically for exoplanets outside of the Solar System.Target location is Kepler-452b in a Solar System alike called Kepler-452.The Rover is based the Russian UGV the Uran-9 and it was about the same size as Uran-9.The carrier would be similar as the one who deliver TitanSwimmer except with bigger fuel tanks and powerful anti- matter engine to reach there quickly.

@aeospace.one - This fish-eye lens view from a window on the International Space Station shows the Northrop Grumman (formerly Orbital ATK) Cygnus commercial space freighter with its cymbal-like Ultra-Flex solar arrays attached to the Unity module. To its right is the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft docked to the Rassvet module. Cygnus is due to end its mission July 15. The Soyuz MS-09 is planned to return to Earth Dec. 13, carrying Sergey Prokopyev, Alexander Gerst and Serena Auñón-Chancellor home after 192 days in space.

The final images captured by Rosetta's OSIRIS camera were released earlier today. This specific photo of Comet 67P reveals the location of the Philae lander that went missing shortly after its rough landing onto the comet in 2014. Less than a month before Rosetta was intentionally crashed into Comet 67P, the probe was spotted waving at the spacecraft. It appeared to be sticking out of a dark crevice within the comet's rocky surface.

How efficient is the #aerodynamics of the #StarWars ships?
Even if Star Wars ships are not affected by #aerodynamic drag because they were designed for outer space (in theory), the #Youtube channel EC Herny did some interesting simulations with #AutoDesk Flow Design to determine the #space ships drag coefficient.

The drag coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that describes the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid (in our case it is air).
For example, a cube has a drag coefficient of 1.05, a sphere has 0.47 and an airfoil has 0.045.
The smaller the number, the lower the resistance.

In the #photos you can the each model with its drag coefficient like its determined in the virtual wind tunnel.
