Be geeky with me and listen to Carl Sagen explain space and the involved science. Here is an amazing Auto-Tune (Software that attmpts to fix the pitch and has been used by singers for years, now turned towards many other projects…). [via nerdist]
Are you ready to celebrate? Well, get ready: We have ICE!!!!! Yes, ICE, *WATER ICE* on Mars! w00t!!! Best day ever!! [Twitter / MarsPhoenix] Well that’s one question answered, and it means they have a place to build a habitat.
Just a couple days ago I mentioned the tiny blue dot. The picture from Gallelio that showed Earth alone as a little blue dot. Well here is a great, and humbling, picture of The earth and Moon as seen from telescope on Mars Orbit. Earth and Moon as Seen from Mars The High Resolution Imaging [...]
Earlier (about 6 months ago) I had written about a famous picture in which shows the earth, our huge home as no more then a little dot. A tiny blue dot… Well here is a look that really brings that home.
In case you missed one of the neatest Twitters, MarsPhoenix http://twitter.com/MarsPhoenix well worth the follow. [Twitter / Robert Culbertson] With all the talk about Titter, I never realized that NASA had made the step to publicize the new Mars lander, “real time” per say, this way. Hit it up if you ant some up too [...]
Phoenix Lands at Martian Arctic Site NASA’s Phoenix spacecraft landed in the northern polar region of Mars today to begin three months of examining a site chosen for its likelihood of having frozen water within reach of the lander’s robotic arm. [NASA] Just in time the new Mars lander has landed on Mars increasing the [...]
Towards the end of World War II the staff of SS officer Hans Kammler made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity. From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon. This base [...]
Here was a cool video that aguy shot while parachuting and reaching over 900 miles an hour and the speed of sound. The whole time unprotected… but for his suit. And amazing video about something I sorta heard about but didn’t fully understand.
…but it’s cheating. They want to drop it from the International Space Station. Besides the Engineering challenges detailed, I’d love to see a video showing it being done, and following it. For most people, it’s enough to see their paper plane fly for a few feet. The Japanese, however, want to send one 240 miles. [...]
