During tomorrow’s CRS-3 launch to station, SpaceX will attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage. This test is not a primary mission objective and has a low probability of success (30-40%), but we hope to gather as much data as possible to support future testing.

After stage separation, when Dragon is well on its way to the ISS, the first stage will attempt to execute a reentry burn and then a landing burn over the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9 is carrying four landing legs, which will deploy partway into the landing burn. Eventually, SpaceX hopes to land the first stage on land.

Though success is unlikely with this test, it represents an exciting effort toward someday developing a reusable rocket.

Wow. Star and black hole interacting over 139 days.
 
How a Black Hole Consumes a Star

This amazing footage (from +NASA - who else?) shows just how devastatingly powerful a #blackhole  truly is.

Shot over the course of 139 days, this visualization footage shows a supermassive black hole that is approximately 2.7 billion light years away from earth decimating a star. From +SPACE.com:

"In this visualization, some of the murdered star's debris falls into the void, but some is spun up and shot out at high velocities.Credit: NASA, S. Gezari (The Johns Hopkins University), and J. Guillochon (University of California, Santa Cruz)."

The arc of stardust that is flung out into the #cosmos  is unbelievable.

It's a #gif  like this that reminds us here at www.solarvps.com that #space  is not only mind boggingly big, but also mind-boggingly violent and treacherous, even for objects as massive as stars.

Doesn't look like it swallowed the star like a space goat consumes a planet.  Amazing.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft and Deep Space Network have uncovered evidence Saturn's moon Enceladus harbors a large underground ocean of liquid water, furthering scientific interest in the moon as a potential home to extraterrestrial microbes.

Researchers theorized the presence of an interior reservoir of water in 2005 when Cassini discovered water vapor and ice spewing from vents near the moon's south pole. The new data provide the first geophysical measurements of the internal structure of Enceladus, consistent with the existence of a hidden ocean inside the moon. Findings from the gravity measurements are in the Friday April 4 edition of the journal Science.

The gravity measurements suggest a large, possibly regional, ocean about 6 miles (10 kilometers) deep, beneath an ice shell about 19 to 25 miles (30 to 40 kilometers) thick. The subsurface ocean evidence supports the inclusion of Enceladus among the most likely places in our solar system to host microbial life. Before Cassini reached Saturn in July 2004, no version of that short list included this icy moon, barely 300 miles (500 kilometers) in diameter.

This illustration depicts Enceladus, which has jets of water vapor and ice gushing from its south pole and the large interior ocean beneath an ice shell.

Bezier Curve Generation

This shows graphically how a Bezier curve connecting two points is generated.

P1 is called the control point, and its location determines the shape of the generated curve.  Beziers are used extensively in computer graphics and in font generation.

Each of the three dots slides along a straight line. At any instant in time, each dot has moved some fraction of the total length of its line, and this fraction is same for each dot.

This is a quadratic Bezier – it has one control point, and one “bend” in the curve. Higher order Beziers have more control points, and more bends.

Enlightened agents are extremely excited about the +Ingress   #interitus  anomaly in London on April 26th! 

Here is a special Interitus Enlightened London logo for the event, using cues from the Enlightened Logo and the Interitus Logo.

... what do you think?

Create. New. Future.

Decent food, well made, at a fair price. Spacious and cosy interior and friendly, helpful staff. Updated: Also, the first really good cup of coffee I've had in Swanage. I had practically given up hope!
