Exactly 48 years ago today (20/07/1969), humanity stepped foot on the lunar surface for the first time. Say what you want about whether or not the moon landings are real, what you cannot deny is that they represent a significant milestone in humanity's history.
-
The missions successfully brought back almost 400kg of moon rock and allowed us to realise that it was more than possible for humanity to reach land masses which are not actually part of Earth.
Travelling to the moon allowed us to realise that both the moon and the earth are genetically similar. Rocks on both the Earth and Moon share distinct characteristics, suggesting that their origins could easily be linked. We were able to confirm that the moon contains no signs of life or fossils of any kind. We also now know that early in it's existence, the moon was actually melted to depths and formed a magma ocean (which Obviously isn't there anymore...)

The final image ever taken in the 20 year long Cassini Mission. Thanks for the incredible data and views from the sixth planet from the sun!!

The end is getting closer and closer. In just over 12 hours from when this is posted, Cassini will make it's final plunge into Saturn. It will begin sending it's final pieces of data to the earth before eventually losing communications forever and becoming a victim of the Saturnian system.

The Image above is from earlier in the mission and is a false colour image of Saturn's cloud systems taken by Cassini!

Very recently, I watched a documentary about the future for human beings beyond our planet. In this documentary a particular star was mentioned, this star was Proxima Centauri, also known as the closest star to the earth after the sun. -
This has made the star important for discovery of worlds beyond our solar system, or exoplanets. Sure enough, we managed to discover that this next door neighbour star (4.2 light years away) actually has the potential for a planet similar to our home, at a distance which we consider to be relatively short in space terms. The planet is known as Proxima Centauri b and is the nearest planet outside of our solar system.
-
This planet is particularly special however, because data has revealed that the planet may not only be a rocky planet like our home. The planet also has a chance to be orbiting in it's habitable zone of it's host star just like Earth. Now this planet is a bit larger than earth and the star it orbits is actually a Red dwarf star, however even with these statistics included the possibility of this being a planet with liquid water just like Earth is actually quite high!

This wonderful spectacle is known as NGC 6814, a special type of spiral galaxy known as a Seyfert galaxy. This galaxy is unique for its long sweeping arms with patterns of dark dust.
-
Seyfert galaxies like this one actually have very active centers which are known for emitting incredible amounts of radiation. The centre of NGC 6814 is a strong source of X-ray radiation suspected of having a supermassive black hole 18 million times the mass of our sun!

An incredible, yet terrifying image taken by NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik from the ISS. This is demonstrating the true scale of Hurricane Irma as it makes it's way towards North America.

These futuristic​ posters that NASA made for the Voyager missions are really cool. Perhaps they're highlighing just what kind of poster advertisements we could be in for in the distant future of space travel!🤔

It's been a while since I've made a post about this complex planet, so here's some more stunning views from our Solar systems ruler, Jupiter itself!

In just over two weeks time, Cassini will enter the very final phase of the mission. As it's last act in the Grand Finale the spacecraft will finally plunge into the atmosphere of Saturn and send back data for the last time.
-
This image shows Saturn illuminating the moon Tethys through the reflection of sunlight. As you can see the planet dwarfs it's tiny satellite. The moon can be seen in the top left of the image, quite a distance away from Cassini, around 930,000 miles or 1.5 million kilometres away from Tethys. The scale shows around 56 miles on Tethys per pixel. -

Uranus is a planet I never really say much about. Maybe it's because it looks too simple for any facts? Or maybe it's because we haven't explored it much? Or maybe, it's just because of it's suspicious sounding name...
-
In reality, the planet is actually a lot more interesting than you might think. So here's some facts about the planet which I've come across.
-
1. Uranus actually rotates in the opposite direction from Earth and most of the other planets. (Retrograde rotation)
-
2. Uranus takes a whopping 84 years to orbit the Sun, with the poles actually pointing directly at the sun in some parts of the orbit. This results in one pole having around 42 years of direct sunlight, while the other is in total darkness.
-
3. Uranus actually​ hits the coldest temperature of all the planets despite not being the farthest away. The planet has a minimum atmospheric temperature of -224°C (-371.2°F) (Neptune is still colder on average though).
-
4. The moons of Uranus are actually named after characters created by Shakespeare and Alexander Pope. These include Oberon, Titania and Miranda.

By far my favourite image from the Solar Eclipse on August 21st, taken by Reddit user @cursetenj. I wasn't able to experience it myself from the UK but it's great to able to appreciate images like this one. Well done to @cursetenj for capturing such a great shot!

Currently, the atmosphere of Mars is around 0.1% oxygen (compared to Earth's 21%). This is of course no use to us as humans, as it isn't enough to breathe. However,  NASA may have just discovered a solution to the problem.
-
In 2020, NASA plan to launch another robot to the planet. However, this particular one will have a special payload which will help to perhaps cultivate oxygen on the red planet!
-
The plan is to send microbial life to Mars to try and create air which is fit for human consumption. If this works, the oxygen could be used not only for us as humans to breathe, but also could be used to fuel rockets for flights back to Earth!

Just a concept of what the moon might look like if we attempted to terraform it! Strange isn't it, it looks completely different. (This is an artist's impression NOT a real image.☺️)

This weird and wonderful galaxy is known as the 'Black Eye Galaxy' or Messier 64. It probably doesn't​ look too strange at first. However, what you might not notice immediately is that the centre of the galaxy is quite strange. That's because this galaxy is actually a combination of two separate galaxies which came together. This has caused quite a strange phenomenon to occur. The centre of the galaxy actually rotates in the opposite direction to the blueish outer edge. This is due to the fact that the dusty centre is from a different galaxy than the the blue edge, giving rise to what we have here.
-
The second image provides a slightly clearer view of this, the centre and it's bands of dust can be seen significantly easier here. We can also see from the second image why the galaxy has the name the 'Black Eye galaxy'.
