Re: Space Exploration

This has been circulating around the web lately. Photos of the derelict Buran Soviet space shuttle that never made it to space.

Yeah, I just read about that this morning. Silly little lander. It's the weekend, you should be sleeping in like everyone else.

Re: Space Exploration

Reposting from my facebook: I have no idea if the math involved in creating this image is correct, but the individual who directed me to it stated this is how big the Andromeda galaxy would appear in our sky (approximately 6 moons wide) if all of its stars were bright enough to be observed with the naked eye from Earth.

To put this into perspective, this galaxy is roughly 780 kiloparsecs or 2,538,000 light years from our planet, and it is roughly 260,000 light years in diameter. That's how far away it is and given that's how large it is, it would be this size in our sky if its light were brighter from that distance. It's 2.5 million light years away, so cut light a little slack.

IF we could see it with the naked eye like this, remember that we would be seeing it as it was 2.5 million years ago. It's difficult to imagine the scope of the cosmos sometimes, but it does not hurt to try.

Re: Space Exploration

I used to think Andromeda was the boogieman when I was a kid after watching a documentary that said it will crash into our galaxy in billions of years and merge its black hole with ours to create a superhuge one. I really was a dumb kid sometimes.

Re: Space Exploration

emot-dance We all psyched up for NASA's big announcement? emot-dance

I know everyone has the money on there being flowing water on Mars, but how awesome would it be if they found something like fossils? (not going to pin my hopes on Martian life.)

We live in a fuck awesome time. emot-biggrin This year alone we've seen full colour, incredibly detailed photographs of not only Pluto, but Charon as well, and now some serious shit's going down on Mars. If the human species survives the next world war with/between China and Russia, our grandchildren are going to ask us about all the things us Gen Y and Gen X people have seen and lived through.

Re: Space Exploration

The scale of it, jeebus. emot-aaa

I always find things like this comforting, the absurd size of the universe renders most of my worries pretty irrelevant, and though I can see how that would bother someone, I just find it to be a relief.

Re: Space Exploration

I don't know how interesting anybody else will find it, but my SO has just learned that Nasa releases albums of "space sounds" on SoundCloud -he's actually planning on mixing them into the soundtrack for his podcast, so he linked me. Some of it is procedural stuff and order transmissions sort of things, but some of it is eerie, particularly things like the lightning on Jupiter and the Kepler tracks. Enjoy. there are larger libraries available elsewhere if you're interested, but SC is the most easily accessible.


The first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
And the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
And sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
Such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

Re: Space Exploration

I just want to say that it is always a joy to see others contributing to this thread, even if updates only come every other month or so.

If you love the cosmic and love watching our fledgling steps to touch it, know that you are in my heart. etc-love

(( Hey... did any of you all take part in the Smithsonian's "Reboot the Suit" Kickstarter thingy?

http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah144/michaelthomas57/SpaceSuit_zpsxagggew2.png

I know it isn't space per se, but... you can't go into space without a spacesuit.  Right?

...

...

...

...

unless you're Batman.  He can breathe in space just fine. Um... yeah.  Me and my dumb sense of humor.

Anyway, if you guys didn't get a chance to see it, a whiles back, the Smithsonian Institute was asking for help to clean / repair / restore the spacesuits worn during the missions to the moon.  I think they ended up busting through their request value within like a day or something. ))

Re: Space Exploration



Take some time to watch this.

It is about size and scope in the cosmos.

After having my mind blown, REPEATEDLY, I think I get just how much of an expansive mind Stephen Hawking has, he really does make some of the topics of the universe into aspects that the common folks on the street can understand.
