Saturn V Rocket

The Saturn V (spoken as "Saturn five") was an American human-rated expendable rocket used by NASA between 1966 and 1973. The three-stage liquid-fueled launch vehicle was developed to support the Apollo program for human exploration of the Moon, and was later used to launch Skylab, the first American space station.

The Saturn V was launched 13 times from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with no loss of crew or payload. The Saturn V remains the tallest, heaviest, and most powerful rocket ever brought to operational status and still holds records for the heaviest payload launched and largest payload capacity to low Earth orbit (LEO) of 118,000 kilograms (260,000 lb).

The largest production model of the Saturn family of rockets, the Saturn V was designed under the direction of Wernher von Braun and Arthur Rudolph at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, with Boeing, North American Aviation, Douglas Aircraft Company, and IBM as the lead contractors. Von Braun's design was based in part on his work on the Aggregate series of rockets, especially the A-10, A-11, and A-12, in Germany during World War II.

To date, the Saturn V remains the only launch vehicle able to transport human beings beyond low Earth orbit. A total of 24 astronauts were launched to the Moon, three of them twice, in the four years spanning December 1968 through December 1972.

Mars One has almost no money. Mars One has no contracts with private aerospace suppliers who are building technology for future deep-space missions. Mars One has no TV production partner. Mars One has no publicly known investment partnerships with major brands. Mars One has no plans for a training facility where its candidates would prepare themselves. Mars One’s candidates have been vetted by a single person, in a 10-minute Skype interview. 
No money, no process, no explanation: An insider speaks out for the first time on the hopelessly flawed scheme to fly to…

Vorhin, beim Spaziergang über den Friedhof im Stadtteil, bekam ich Fetzen eines Gespräches von einigen Pensionären mit, die auf einer Bank saßen. Es ging um das Internet .. ob sie von Google oder Wikipedia sprachen weiss ich nicht.

Flachen Hamburger Akzent bitte dazudenken (etwa: 'bläddern')

"... man braucht gar kein Lexikon mehr."

"Jo, musst dir nicht die Wände vollstellen."

"Und auch nicht mehr blättern!"

Made my day.

The Milky Way Over the Arizona Toadstools
Which is older -- the rocks you see on the ground or the light you see from the sky? Usually it’s the rocks that are older, with their origin sediments deposited well before light left any of the stars or nebulas you see in the sky. However, if you can see, through a telescope, a distant galaxy far across the universe -- further than Andromeda or spiral galaxy NGC 7331 (inset) -- then you are seeing light even more ancient. Featured here, the central disk of our Milky Way Galaxy arches over Toadstool hoodoos rock formations in northern Arizona, USA. The unusual Toadstool rock caps are relatively hard sandstone that wind has eroded more slowly than the softer sandstone underneath. The green bands are airglow, light emitted by the stimulated air in Earth's atmosphere. On the lower right is a time-lapse camera set up to capture the sky rotating behind the picturesque foreground scene.

Der eine oder die andere benutzt Evernote für seinen digitalen Workflow - ich auch, jedenfalls noch, aber das ist eine andere Geschichte für einen anderen Artikel. Aber der Grund dafür, dass ich mich langsam von Evernote verabschiede, liegt u.a. in der Backup-Problematik; oder genauer, in dem Problem, die Dinge, die ich in Evernote ablege, daraus vernünftig und brauchbar im worst case auch w ...

Um die Zukunft und die Vergangenheit - so weit sie als Science Fiction bzw. als Fantasy imaginiert werden - findet derzeit, von der größeren Öffentlichkeit weitgehend unbemerkt, ein Kulturkampf statt. Unbemerkt, aber nicht unwichtig, denn wo anders als in diesem Genre entsteht das kollektive Imaginäre? Ein heiß diskutiertes Symptom für diesen Kulturkampf sind die vor wenigen Tagen bekanntgeg ...

An solchen Tagen denkt man schnell mal an Schnaps. Oder Kunsttrinken.

Vor einer Weile schwirrte ein Blogstöckchen durch die Luft, in Umlauf gebracht von Bildungstrinken, und, zack, landete es in meinen Händen. Zugeworfen von Foodfreak, die sich den elf Fragen zum Trinken bei Langstreckensaufen widmete. Eigentlich passt das Thema genausogut bei Papperlahapp rein, aber da es dort doch mehr ums Kochen geht, während das mit dem Trinken doch irgendwie grundsätzlicher ist, lade ich hier in die Sinnundverstand-Kneipe. ...

"THERE is much concern these days about what’s in our dietary supplements. Are they actually filled with the ingredients that the labels promise?

Maybe, maybe not. Quality control issues in the estimated 85,000 dietary supplement products available in America should give every consumer pause. But even #vitamins themselves — the 13 dietary chemicals necessary to prevent deficiency diseases like scurvy and rickets — pose hidden hazards of their own."...
Our staples have been fortified for years, allowing us to eat badly.

Herschel's Andromeda 
Image Credit: ESA/Herschel/PACS & SPIRE Consortium, O. Krause, HSC, H. Linz
Explanation: This infrared view from the Herschel Space Observatory explores the Andromeda Galaxy, the closest large spiral galaxy to our own Milky Way. Only 2.5 million light-years distant, the famous island universe is also known to astronomers as M31. Andromeda spans over 200,000 light-years making it more than twice the size of the Milky Way. Shown in false color, the image data reveal the cool dust lanes and clouds that still shine in the infrared but are otherwise dark and opaque at visual wavelengths. Red hues near the galaxy's outskirts represent the glow of dust heated by starlight to a few tens of degrees above absolute zero. Blue colors correspond to hotter dust warmed by stars in the more crowded central core. Also a tracer of molecular gas, the dust highlights Andromeda's prodigious reservoir of raw material for future star formation.
