This chart I found on Pinterest shows the gargantuan effort needed to travel between the stars. What do you think? https://pin.it/ncv3jnzwuncwjh
Neptune as taken from NASA's Voyager 2 Thirty years ago, on Aug. 25, 1989, NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft made a close flyby of Neptune, giving humanity its first close-up of our solar system's eighth planet. Marking the end of the Voyager mission's Grand Tour of the solar system's four giant planets — Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune... Continue Reading →
Apollo 11 astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins awoke to start their fifth day in space at the end of their ninth revolution around the Moon. In Mission Control at the Manned Spacecraft Center, now the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Eugene F. Kranz’s White Team of controllers arrived on... Continue Reading →
As if black holes weren't mysterious enough, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have found an unexpected thin disk of material furiously whirling around a supermassive black hole at the heart of the magnificent spiral galaxy NGC 3147, located 130 million light-years away. The conundrum is that the disk shouldn't be there, based on current... Continue Reading →
One of the things I've come to realise is that I will not be an astronaut, I will not walk on the Moon and I will not walk on Mars. I'm too old and to be brutally honest to myself I would cost to much to launch! I was ind of born a few generations... Continue Reading →
A camera on the Insight's robotic arm snapped the photos on April 24 and 25, the 145th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. In local Mars time, the shots were taken starting around 5:30 a.m. and then again starting around 6:30 p.m. As a bonus, a camera under the lander's deck also caught clouds... Continue Reading →
The Pale Blue Dot represents a goal not just point of light. When man can look back and see that same pale blue dot with his own eyes, it's will be the first step in truly understanding the place of humanity in the universe.
Data from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, which passed the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule on January the 1st, is yielding scientific discoveries daily.
For the second time in history, a human-made object has reached the space between the stars. NASA’s Voyager 2 probe now has exited the heliosphere – the protective bubble of particles and magnetic fields created by the Sun. Voyager 2 now is slightly more than 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from Earth. Mission operators still can... Continue Reading →
