more planetary geology stuff... always amazing!
 
Saturn's largest moon is a windy place | Geology Page

'Titan, Saturn's largest moon, is a peculiar place. Unlike any other moon, it has a dense atmosphere. It has rivers and lakes made up of components of natural gas, such as ethane and methane. It also has windswept dunes that are hundreds of yards high, more than a mile wide and hundreds of miles long -- despite data suggesting the body to have only light breezes.'

Cassini radar sees sand dunes on Saturn's giant moon Titan (upper photo) that are sculpted like Namibian sand dunes on Earth (lower photo). The bright features in the upper radar photo are not clouds but topographic features ...

beautiful!
 
The nebula NGC 6357 sits around 8,000 light years from Earth. Pismis 24 is a large cluster of stars found at the heart of the nebula with Pismis 24-1 being one of the stars within the cluster. Pismis 24-1 is the largest and brightess star amoungst its group, also being one of the most luminous stars within space. The more younger super heated blue stars in and around the nebula release ultraviolet energy, energising and ionizing the Hydrogen Gas giving off this orange glow.
Pismis 24-1 is the brightest point of light just above the centre in the image below.

Stunning image was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Physicists have teleported a light particle 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) across an optical fiber, making it the farthest successful quantum teleportation feat yet: http://buff.ly/1A9suaJ

I think it's simply traveling through the Meissner field of the fiber optic cable. I know the definition of super conductivity is actually the conduction of light, so it sounds like they are hiding that they can use fiber optics as room-temperature super-conductors. I know they have had them for years, but will not admit it. No pun intended, but they are just putting a new spin on the same old high-spin-state-electrons.................

The Future of Flight

As Jesus Diaz noted for Sploid: "Most people don't know this, but NASA doesn't only work in exploring space. Its contribution to airplane technology—National Aeronautics and Space Administration—has been crucial to the development of safer, faster, more efficient travel." This concept of an aircraft that could fly at supersonic speeds over land is being used by researchers, especially at NASA's Langley Research Center, to continue to test ideas on ways to reduce the level of sonic booms. Its technologies – the F-100-like propulsion system, a tail blister, and the overall shape – are combined to achieve a lower target perceived decibel level.

say what now?
 
Dust from a comet has been discovered for the first time on the Earth's surface http://ow.ly/2RNG9y
(Phys.org)—A combined team of researchers from Japan and the U.S. has found particles of comet dust in ice extracted from the Antarctic—the first time comet dust particles have been found on the surface of the Earth. In their paper published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, the ...

I wanto to go exploring!
 
Our Mars Curiosity rover finds clues to how water helped shape Martian landscape. Observations indicate Mars' Mount Sharp was built by sediments deposited in a large lake bed over tens of millions of years.Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1w7drxS

oh that is awesome!
 
Comet watchers will soon find a special gift this holiday season. Get ready to spot Comet Lovejoy Q2, now bright enough to spot in a pair of 10×50 binoculars. Learn more: http://buff.ly/130hq5L
