+Amy Shira Teitel Ah! It sounds kind of like the APU on the KC-135s I used to work on, which makes sense, given what they're doing.

Hey guys! So talking to New Horizons PI Alan Stern last night, he pointed out that I misunderstood him about the spacecraft's post-Pluto plans. There are two Kuiper Belt Objects the spacecraft could reach, and the team will pick one based on ease of access (i.e. things like how to get there using a few consumables as possible) and from there will consider a possible next target. Still, one KBO or two, it's going to be awesome!

52 minutes after #Apollo13 launched, Swigert had "all balls." This is why.

A fun fact about New Horizons is that it has been in flight for so long that Pluto was still a planet when the mission was launched!  Pluto was demoted to dwarf planet status 8 months after New Horizons was launched.

Quick note, guys. Frank O'Brien who wrote "The Apollo Guidance Computer" pointed out a little error on my part. Gimbal lock on Apollo was possible with the inner and outer gimbal lying on the same plane, the gimbal mounted on the central platform and the one mounted to the spacecraft. Those are the two you really don't want to line up!

+Dave Manley Yeah, it did. All the Apollo astronauts hated the 3 gimbal system on Apollo.

I don't know for sure +marc strong, but I would imagine modern spacecraft use something akin to the electronic accelerometers and gyroscopes in your smartphone (albeit beefed up and rad. hardened to survive the space environment).  There's also likely to be multiple redundant duplicates to ensure reliability.

Although I do drink fizzy drinks, I certainly wouldn't miss them.  As long as they can work out how to make a decent cup of tea up there, I'll be happy!  I'm okay with beer too, as I only drink ales which aren't very gassy.

Story
Introduction
I'm a writer and blogger - I blog at Vintage Space, study spaceflight history, and freelance whenever possible. I'm a space writer (aspiring to make that my professional title, somehow) because I love it. I finished a Master's degree in 2010 and realized that I don't like academic history and I don't want to be an academic historian. I've always wanted to write books and bring space science to the public in a way that's fun and accessible. 

I've been forging my own path for the last year. 

You can expect largely space-related posts from me: neat photos and archive movies from the early space age, cool articles, and a stream of updates from my blog. 

I moonlight as a personal trainer, but it's highly unlikely I'll be posting fitness tips. Unless they come from astronaut training logs. 

I'm also a Canadian currently living in the US, which has really brought out my accent, eh?

I write for a number of outlets, but the opinions on my page are strictly my own.
