Letter has been given. Jesus, so nervous. Going to listen to Ólafur Arnalds until the response comes.

Earth: September 4, 2016 | NOAA/NASA DSCOVR
A day in the life of Earth, as seen from a million miles away through the lens of NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera, affixed to NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory. Distance: 981,266 miles

The primary objective of DSCOVR, a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force, is to maintain the nation’s real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities, which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of space weather alerts and forecasts from NOAA.

Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC)
NASA has contributed two Earth science instruments for NOAA's space weather observing satellite called the Deep Space Climate Observatory or DSCOVR. One of the instruments called EPIC or Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera images the Earth in one picture, something that hasn't been done before from a satellite. EPIC also provides valuable atmospheric data.

Previously, to get an entire Earth view, scientists had to piece together images from satellites in orbit. With the launch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) DSCOVR and the EPIC instrument, scientists get pictures of the entire sunlit side of Earth. To get that view, EPIC orbits the first sun-Earth Lagrange point (L1), 1 million miles from Earth. At this location, four times further than the orbit of the Moon, the gravitational pull of the sun and Earth cancel out providing a stable orbit for DSCOVR. Most other Earth-observing satellites circle the planet within 22,300 miles.

EPIC assembles its photograph-like views by combining information from the instrument’s red, green, and blue bands. Bands are narrow regions of the electromagnetic spectrum to which a remote sensing instrument responds. When EPIC collects data, it takes a series of 10 images at different bands—from ultraviolet to near infrared.

The effective resolution of the EPIC camera is somewhere between 10 and 15 kilometers (6 to 9 miles) per pixel, according to Adam Szabo, DSCOVR project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Since Earth is extremely bright compared to the darkness of space, the exposure time for images is as little as 20 to 100 milliseconds. The much fainter stars in the background are not visible because of this short exposure time.

holy crap
I knew the Falcon 9 was 70 meters tall, but this photo really shows the scale
I like this pic of a SpaceX rocket with people next to it because it's hard to get a sense of scale in landing vids. Embedded image. 2:37 PM - 19 Aug 2016. 54 Retweets67 Likes. Reply to @hypercubexl. Replies. Marcus Conge. 3h3 hours ago. Marcus Conge @RockingThePixel. @hypercubexl Yeah it is!

In case you missed it, DNA was sequenced in space today for the first time ever! This was conducted as part of the Biomolecule Sequencer experiment on the International Space Station by astronaut Kate Rubins. Having the ability to sequence the DNA of living organisms in microgravity opens a whole new world of scientific and medical possibilities. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2c9Y1HX

In case you missed it, we tested one of the engines that will power the rocket carrying humans to deep-space destinations, and eventually Mars. The 7.5-minute test conducted at our Stennis Space Center is part of a series of tests designed to put the upgraded former space shuttle engines through the rigorous temperature and pressure conditions they will experience during a launch. Watch the test here: https://youtu.be/bJgsdnpjyes #NASAMarsDay

How gravitational waves went from a whisper to a shout
- Had LIGO just confirmed a 100-year-old prediction made by Einstein? Had they discovered the first black hole binary? Had they opened a new era of astrophysics? With the stakes so high, the collaborators wanted to keep their results secret while they determined if the results were real. It was unfortunate that some onlookers chose to publicize vague rumors when the internal vetting had just begun - written by Robert Garisto

- image source: #Nasa : What are Gravitational waves? Gravitational waves are disturbances in space-time, the very fabric of the universe, that travel at the speed of light. The waves are emitted by any mass that is changing speed or direction. The simplest example is a binary system, where a pair of stars or compact objects (like black holes) orbit their common center of mass. http://nasa.tumblr.com/post/139124558019/what-are-gravitational-waves

The rats are becoming nervous. They're all beginning the course of trying to save their own asses by playing that same old game of playing voters like a fiddle, to get their butts re-elected, again. This election really is important, more than most. This will become a great marker for measuring the stupidity and level of gullible in this country.
