Title: Uncle Mort's Space Pictures
Post by: Uncle Mort on April 07, 2012, 08:19:09 PM
For those who find space and space travel fascinating I intend here to post photos and links that have that wow factor.

First off, the one millionth photo taked on the International Space Station.

(https://www.virtual-pub.com/SMF/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fs9.postimage.org%2Fz3rom4su3%2Fonemillioniss.jpg&hash=8b099e7a64ed54b6ea6fe7138b2eb8aa53ea6fcb) (http://postimage.org/image/z3rom4su3/)

and a recent picture of the European ATV freighter docking with the space station:

As far as I'm aware all Excalibur Almaz have are a couple of old rusty Russian military Sayluts and a few crew return capsules that the Russians designed and built in the early 70s but decided not to develop. They have no launch vehicle of their own but plan to ship their stuff back to Russia for them to launch.

I don't really rate their chances of ever getting off the ground.

Camelopardalis, or U Cam for short, is a star nearing the end of its life. As stars run low on fuel, they become unstable. Every few thousand years, U Cam coughs out a nearly spherical shell of gas as a layer of helium around its core begins to fuse. The gas ejected in the starís latest eruption is clearly visible in this picture as a faint bubble of gas surrounding the star

I was once put on a charge by the Orderly Officer. He came round the mess hall and asked the usual "Any Complains?" ...... I replied "Hebrews 13.8" and he sent the Orderly Sergeant to find a Bible so he could look it up........ 3 days jankers for insubordination  ::)
TBF the CO had a broad smile on his face when the charge was read out and instead of the usual cookhouse pan scrubbing I was sent to the camp chapel to polish all the chalices, candlesticks etc.

Okay ~ off topic I know but in keeping with previous posts.

Indeed. Exciting times.

Wonder if we'll ever find another planet as habitable as ours?

Chances are ...imo...IF we ever do, and that's a humomngously BIG IF, it'll be to too far away for us to ever reach it. sad32:

Weird but also sad to think that the probabilty of civilisation on another planet is extremely high....imo again.

I mean, this one tjhey've found is 'only' 4 light years away, but just how far IS that, in say, terms of comparison with the distance to Mars?

The BBC said "These studies indicate that impacts producing holes at least 3.9m (12.8ft) in diameter occur at a rate exceeding 200 per year across the planet."

So being no Astronomy expert I'm guessing that Mars is much nearer to belts of Asteroids than wot we are.

Bet the Meister is a bit less pissed off he wasn't picked for that mission now.  There you'd be Meister lazing on your sun lounger gazing at the Earth and suddenly you're squashed to pulp at the bottom of a 3.9m hole.  Still it'd be quick

NASA scientists have produced the first global geological map of Jupiter's largest moon Ganymede by combining images from over twenty years of observation by the Voyager spacecraft and the Galileo orbiter.

Ganymede, which as the largest moon in the Solar System is bigger than the planet Mercury, hosts a thick mantle of ice roughly 800km (497 mi) thick. The moon has two major terrain types, dark cratered areas and younger regions characterized by a plethora of grooves and ridges. The map, published by the US Geological Survey exhibits three distinct geological periods demarcated by cratering, tectonic disturbances and finally by a drop in geologic activity.

ďThis map illustrates the incredible variety of geological features on Ganymede and helps to make order from the apparent chaos of its complex surface,Ē says Robert Pappalardo of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.....

The cameras use filters to photograph the target in various colours. they can be combined to produce 'colour' pictures.

e.g.

Taken when the spacecraft passed by Mars.

Splendid results and a a fine project, but has the press overdone it a bit?

"..built from parts made by a 3D printer."

"At the heart of the telescope is the camera module of a Raspberry Pi, the cheap, barebones, British built computer."

"Other parts such as the lens and the mirror can be bought from online suppliers."

So, it uses a Raspberry pi, a lens and a mirror, all bought online.
That would make the "parts made by a 3D printer" a plastic tube and a bit to hold the mirror?

"December 13-14, 2015, mid-evening until dawn, Geminids
Radiating from near the bright stars Castor and Pollux in the constellation Gemini the Twins, the Geminid meteor shower is one of the finest meteors showers visible in either the Northern or the Southern Hemisphere. Best yet, in 2015, there is no moon to obscure this shower. The meteors are plentiful, rivaling the August Perseids. They are often bold, white and bright. The zenithal hourly rate for the Geminids is up to 120 meteors per hour, after some good displays in recent years. That is the predicted best rate of the shower, which you might see if youíre watching in a dark country sky on the night of the peak, around 2 a.m. local time (the time on your clock no matter where you are on Earth), when the radiant point is highest in the sky. In 2015, the slender waxing crescent moon will set soon after the sun, providing a wonderful cover of darkness for the Geminid meteor shower. Your best bet is to watch on the night of December 13 (morning of December 14) from mid-evening (9 to 10 p.m.) until dawn."

also see: http://www.spacedex.com/geminids/ (http://www.spacedex.com/geminids/)
.."Unlike many of the other major meteor showers, the Geminids can be viewed early in the evening. This is due to the radiant (the constellation Gemini) being about 30 degrees above the eastern horizon by 9:00pm.

This will make it clear

The same desire for clearness, which has led me thus to extend a little my first analysis of the three great classes of English society, prompts me also to make my nomenclature for them a little fuller, with a view to making it thereby more clear and manageable. It is awkward and tiresome to be always saying the aristocratic class, the middle-class, the working-class. For the middle-class, for that great body which, as we know, "has done all the great things that have been done in all departments," and which is to be conceived as chiefly moving between its two cardinal points of Mr. Bazley and the Rev. W. Cattle, but inclining, in the mass, rather towards the latter than the former ó for this class we have a designation which now has become pretty well known, and which we may as well still keep for them, the designation of Philistines. What this term means I have so often explained that I need not repeat it here. For the aristocratic class, conceived mainly as a body moving between the two cardinal points of Lord Elcho and Sir Thomas Bateson, but as a whole nearer to the latter than the former, we have as yet got no special designation. Almost [97/98] all my attention has naturally been concentrated on my own class, the middle-class, with which I am in closest sympathy, and which has been, besides, the great power of our day, and has had its praises sung by all speakers and newspapers. Still the aristocratic class is so important in itself, and the weighty functions which Mr. Carlyle proposes at the present critical time to commit to it must add so much to its importance, that it seems neglectful, and a strong instance of that want of coherent philosophic method for which Mr. Frederic Harrison blames me, to leave the aristocratic class so much without notice and denomination. It may be thought that the characteristic which I have occasionally mentioned as proper to aristocracies, ó their natural inaccessibility, as children of the established fact, to ideas, ó points to our extending to this class also the designation of Philistines; the Philistine being, as is well known, the enemy of the children of light, or servants of the idea. Nevertheless, there seems to be an inconvenience in thus giving one and the same designation to two very different classes; and besides, if we look into the thing closely, we shall find that the term Philistine conveys a sense which [98/99] makes it more peculiarly appropriate to our middle class than to our aristocratic. For Philistine gives the notion of something particularly stiff-necked and perverse in the resistance to light and its children, and therein it specially suits our middle-class, who not only do not pursue sweetness and light, but who prefer to them that sort of machinery of business, chapels, tea meetings, and addresses from Mr. Murphy and the Rev. W. Cattle, which makes up the dismal and illiberal life on which I have so often touched. But the aristocratic class has actually, as we have seen, in its well-known politeness, a kind of image or shadow of sweetness; and as for light, if it does not pursue light, it is not that it perversely cherishes some dismal and illiberal existence in preference to light, but it is seduced from following light by those mighty and eternal seducers of our race which weave for this class their most irresistible charms, ó by worldly splendour, security, power and pleasure. These seducers are exterior goods, but they are goods; and he who is hindered by them from caring for light and ideas, is not so much doing what is perverse as what is natural.

Am getting annoyed with the assorted pseuds getting dragged out for the TV this week saying shite like "we're going back" and "we're going to Mars"

No we're not.  Celebrate the 50 years absolutely it was an amazing inspiring and brave achievement but what the anniversary really tells you is that in 50 years no one has ever come up with a good reason to go back

NASA have set up a website you can experience the Apollo 13 mission in real time.  :thumbsup:

Seeing as I've just finished listening to Gene Krantz's NASA memoirs again I can see me spending some time going through this.

Starlink Satellites
If the skies are clear, thereís a train of satellites that will be visible to the human eye over the next few nights. Tonightís are supposed to be visible for six minutes 2158hrs (+/- 10 mins). A few around here seen them last night, I'll be giving it a try later. For the insomniacs, they come round again 0330 and 0502hrs too 😉   Link is here  (http://findstarlink.com/#1530;3)

Sorry Smuggers, for Cyprus it says, "the latest Starlink isn't very visible at your location during the next 5 days. This might change in the coming weeks, due to changing orbits."
