    A Gemini space capsule up for auction in Boston has drawn in more than just bids. The 2-ton boilerplate also attracted the local police for being parked in a loading zone. Narrowly avoiding a parking ticket, the capsule is set to be sold Thursday (Nov. 20), together with 600 other space artifacts, through RR Auction's website.
  • Comet landing lands on UK mail

    16 Nov 2014 | 10:00 pm
    The first probe to land on a comet is being celebrated by the United Kingdom's Royal Mail with the use of a special postmark. Millions of letters delivered by the British postal service began arriving on Friday (Nov. 14) with the commemorative mark congratulating the European Space Agency on landing the Philae probe on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
  • Philae falls silent

    14 Nov 2014 | 9:45 pm
    With its batteries drained and not enough sunlight to recharge, ESA's Philae probe has fallen into "idle mode" for a potentially long silence. Most of its systems and all of its instruments have been shut off. From now on, no further contact with the first probe to land on a comet will be possible unless it is exposed to enough sunlight to generate power and wake Philae from sleep.

    “We want to find out whether spacetime is a quantum system just like matter is,” said Craig Hogan, director of Fermilab’s Center for Particle Astrophysics and the developer of the holographic noise theory. “If we see something, it will completely change ideas about space we’ve used for thousands of years.” Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3 - D world exists only on a 2 - D screen, we could be clueless that our 3 - D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in…
  • NASA's New View of Jupiter's Ocean Moon --Is Europa the Solar System's Best Bet for Life?

    dailygalaxy.com
    22 Nov 2014 | 7:48 am
    The puzzling, fascinating surface of Jupiter's icy moon Europa looms large in this newly-reprocessed color view, made from images taken by NASA's Galileo spacecraft in the late 1990s. This is the color view of Europa from Galileo that shows the largest portion of the moon's surface at the highest resolution. Scientists have produced this new version of what is perhaps NASA's best view Europa. The mosaic of color images was obtained in the late 1990s by NASA's Galileo spacecraft. This is the first time that NASA is publishing a version of the scene produced using modern image processing…
  • The Science Behind "Interstellar's" Stunning Wormhole Voyage (Weekend Feature)

    dailygalaxy.com
    22 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Similar in premise to many other science fiction films, something sets Interstellar apart: Many of the images are--for the most part--scientifically accurate, based on lensing calculations produced by Cornell University and California Institute of Technology scientists that show what black holes or wormholes look like. At this point, the blockbuster movie has created such a stir that one would almost have to be inside a black hole not to know about it. And while the science fiction thriller may have taken some liberties with science to make its Hollywood plot work, the imagery comes straight…

    21 Nov 2014 | 9:11 am
    Betelgeuse is one of the most massive known stars, almost the size of the orbit of Jupiter, surrounded by a nebula, which is much bigger than the supergiant itself, stretching 60 billion kilometres away from the star's surface — about 400 times the distance of the Earth from the Sun. Red supergiants like Betelgeuse represent one of the last stages in the life of a massive star in which the star increases in size, and expels material into space at a tremendous rate — it sheds immense quantities of material equal to the mass of the Sun in just 10 000 years. In a discovery decades in the…

    In 1960, the astronomer Francis Drake pointed a radio telescope located in Green Bank, West Virginia, toward two Sun-like stars 11 light years away. His hope: to pick up a signal that would prove intelligent life might be out there. Fifty years have gone by since Drake’s pioneering SETI experiment, and we’ve yet to hear from the aliens.mmBut thanks to a host of discoveries, the idea that life might exist beyond Earth now seems more plausible than ever. For one, we’ve learned that life can thrive in the most extreme environments here on Earth — from deep-sea methane seep and Antarctic…

  • A Plumber’s Guide to Starships- Part 4 – Materials in High Radiation Environments

    Michel Lamontagne
    20 Nov 2014 | 6:36 pm
    Materials near a fusion reaction are subject to very high levels of both X-ray and Neutron radiation.  How do they stand up to this? Figure 7 – Material swelling due to radiation damage Even with a nominally “aneutronic” fusion reaction – and much more so with D-D fusion — there will necessarily be a large radiation flux coming from the fusion drive, mostly in the form of high energy neutrons and X-rays.  Radiation flux alters materials, but, surprisingly, not necessarily in a negative way.  And the heat from the absorbed radiation needs to be managed, since we do not…

    Terraformed Venus (a Wikipedia Image) Travelling to the stars within a human lifetime via the known laws of physics requires energies millions of times more potent than a trip to Mars, for example. In our energy hungry modern world the prospect seems fanciful, yet we are surrounded by energies and forces of comparable scale. By taming those forces we will be able to launch forth towards the stars and save our civilization and our biosphere. How so? Consider the sunlight received every second by planet Earth, from the Sun. About 1.4 kilowatts of energy for every square metre directly facing…

    Materials are the bedrock upon which we can build starship designs. Outside of science fiction, there is no use postulating a starship drive that requires materials that do not, or cannot, exist. So this article is about materials: what they can do, what we hope future materials can do, and what we expect materials to never be able to do. Figure 1- Roman clay pipes. Modern vitrified clay pipes. Alumina ceramic pipes and linings. 2000 years of progress in materials. For a Starship plumber, the question boils down to: “What’s the best material for my pipes?” And the answer is the…

    Peak Meteor Shower time! Hope everyone is enjoying the Leonids! And what better time to appreciate our telescopes-- which often translates into coveting a newer, better, bigger one. Conventional history records that German-born Hans Lippershey invented the telescope in 1608, but legend has it that the device was actually invented years earlier by children playing with lenses in his shop where he created eye-spectacles. Other stories say his apprentice first hit upon the idea of doubling refracting lenses. Nonetheless, Lunar Crater Lippershey is named after him, and not the help. Coastal…

    In 1923, as George Mallory toured the United States fundraising for his assault on the virgin summit of Mt. Everest, a New York reporter posed to him the question, “Why do you want to climb Mt. Everest?” Mallory responded, “Because it’s there.” So while Ethan Siegel may argue that space exploration is the “great equalizer,” and NASA may support rockets based on freeze-dried food, cochlear implants and other trickle-down technologies, and Bill Dunford may say that exploring “out there” creates new solutions “down here,” ultimately, space needs no defenders.

It is certain that the drill was activated, as were all the steps to transport the sample to the appropriate oven. COSAC also worked as planned. Now scientists need to analyse the data to determine whether a soil sample was actually examined in the gas chromatograph. This will be done in collaboration with several instrument teams.
