I know I have ranted over the frustration on space, but this is worth fighting for. It really is frustrating how broken our space exploration system is in terms of leadership (lack there of), budgetary instability (congressional jobs program) and lack of sound project management (orion takes ~15 years from contract to first crewed test flight). will a Chinese space race really be the kick in the pants we need or will those in power continue with the mantra "when China gets to the moon they will see 6 american flags already there"
for those that missed previous rants:
shoot for the Moon short -
Man left the Moon for the last time 42 years ago -
Just stop with this Journey to Mars BS -
as I said 3 months ago after seeing a demo the use cases for professional industries is where this will shine and they can certainly afford the $60K price tag.
using it to record a passenger's flight experience with one of these mounted in the vehicle cabin. or for the having some mounted outside for 360 camera views to check clearances ( or even mounted on an EMU) or inside the ISS for PAO type tours/events. for the movie industry it would give you a whole new way to film a scene.
has two cameras showing what is going on in the lab as the telescope is built up for the eventual 2018 launch to deep space. Next year part of the mirror assembly will come to JSC to get tested down to 14 deg Kelvin in Chamber A.
Although Enceladus and Saturn's rings are largely made up of water ice, they show very different characteristics. The small ring particles are too tiny to retain internal heat and have no way to get warm, so they are frozen and geologically dead. Enceladus, on the other hand, is subject to forces that heat its interior to this very day. This results in its famous south polar water jets, which are just visible above the moon’s dark, southern limb, along with a sub-surface ocean.
Recent work by Cassini scientists suggests that Enceladus (313 miles or 504 kilometers across) has a global ocean of liquid water under its surface. This discovery increases scientists' interest in Enceladus and the quest to understand the role of water in the development of life in the solar system.
The New World Magischola: A College of Wizardry LARP will take place at the University of Richmond, and will allow attendees to live out their Hogwarts dreams over the course of four days.
I know is looking forward to it, but with the holidays it might take us a few weeks to get there.
