Community Policy (Read this)  - 
 
***PLEASE READ THE COMMUNITY POLICY AND GUIDELINES BEFORE POSTING***.

***POSTS THAT DO NOT PROVIDE ATTRIBUTION OR CREDITS ARE SUBJECT TO REMOVAL***  

First read this few, important words by our fellow moderator +Jason Major :

"Just a quick note (PLEASE READ) – if you post an article here that has already been shared recently, especially multiple times, OR if you post an image or video (even space-related) with no content, description, or attribution, it will be removed.

Thank You - Management"

Please refer to the Community Policy at left for more information. Thank you.
 
It's About Respect 
 
One of the things we do a lot as moderators of the Space community is remind posters to give proper attribution and link-backs to the authors and artists whose work they're sharing with everybody. Though the rules are pretty simple - put the name of the content creator in your post, if the work is copyrighted put the name of the organization that owns the copyright (if different from the author) in your post, and include a link back to the original source - they're often not heeded. The moderating team understands that even these simple rules are significantly stricter  than what people find in most of social media, and so we try to give people ample warning and reminders of the expectations here. 
 
If we know the rules surrounding sharing are stricter than in other communities, why do we have them?  If the copyright boogymen aren't coming for you on Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, or even elsewhere on Google+, isn't it safe to just share freely with the Space community? 
 
Well, simply put, yes. Unless you're posting something that's explicitly and blatantly illegal, the legal ramifications of your sharing a quote, or an image, or what have you are nil. Nobody's coming to get you. 
 
But that's not the point. It's not about the law. We're not trying to cover our behinds, and we're not reminding you to cover yours. In fact, many of the images we're all sharing are in the public domain, and are not protected by copyright laws. 
 
It's about respect. 
 
By naming the scientist, author, artist, photographer, videographer, director, producer, or whoever it is that has created this work that you feel is worth sharing in your post and including a link back to the original source, you are showing your respect. You are showing your respect to the creator of that work, and, perhaps more importantly, you are showing your respect to the other members of this community. 
 
As moderators, we want to build a community that is built on respect, and one of the most significant ways we can show respect is to give credit where credit is due. We want to foster an attitude around content sharing that is respectful, that is not exploitative of artists and authors, and that does not take the members of this community for granted. 
 
As a denizen and frequent user of social media, you may not care about giving credit, and as a content creator yourself, you may not care if you get credit. In the end, however, it isn't about you, nor is it about what you care about. It's about this community as a whole, and what kind of community we all want it to be. What we want is a community that does care. 
 
We want a community that cares about attribution because it's curious about where things come from, and because it's respectful toward others.

Career Launch: 50-Foot Rocket Built By Students Breaks Records

The Future Heavy sport rocket, built by interns and mentors from United Launch Alliance, is the "largest sport rocket launched in the world" according to the company.

On Sunday (July 24), ULA launched the 50-foot-tall (15.24 meters) Future Heavy rocket out of Fort Carson Army Post, breaking the record for "the largest sport rocket launched anywhere in the world," according to a statement from ULA. The Future Heavy is also notable because it was built entirely by company interns and their mentors.

U.S. Department of Energy and Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory
Among the intriguing issues in plasma physics are those surrounding X-ray pulsars — collapsed stars that orbit around a cosmic companion and beam light at regular intervals, like lighthouses in the sky.  Physicists want to know the strength of the magnetic field and density of the plasma that surrounds these pulsars, which can be millions of times greater than the density of plasma in stars like the sun.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have developed a theory of plasma waves that can infer these properties in greater detail than in standard approaches. The new research analyses the plasma surrounding the pulsar by coupling Einstein’s theory of relativity with quantum mechanics, which describes the motion of subatomic particles such as the atomic nuclei — or ions — and electrons in plasma. Supporting this work is the DOE Office of Science.

+Terris Linenbach The fist stage propellant load is about 420 tonnes - burning LOX and RP1. So, I'd guess at at a fuel load of, say, 200 tonnes.

If the average car gets through a tonne of fuel per year, then that's the fuel for ~200 cars.

Or, roughly two 747's worth.

The first image released from South Africa's 'super telescope' is unreal.

In case you weren't already aware, there is a series of radio telescopes in South Africa called "Meerkat."

The project is currently under construction, but once it's completed, it will boast 64 satellite dishes spread out over less than half a mile. These satellites will allow people to see things in detail that were never previously visible.

Currently, there are 16 dishes up and working. Though this is just 25 percent of the final product's full strength, researchers couldn't wait any longer. They fired the telescopes up and were able to take a few stunning photos.

Even at such a small percentage, the images show a corner of the universe where there were thought to be only 70 galaxies. Now with the visibility of Meerkat, it is apparent there are at least 1,300 galaxies in that exact spot.

The telescopes work together by pooling information and converting what they read in radio waves to a single digital image.

In addition to the grouping of satellites in Africa, an additional group will be built in Australia.

Eventually, researches would like to up the amount of dishes to around 3,000 by the 2020s.

With that amount of dishes, the project will have the discovery potential of 10,000 times more than any other currently existing technology.

See alsow, please:

With the visibility provided by 'Meerkat,' it is now apparent there are at least 1,300 galaxies in that exact spot we used to believe there were only 70.

Curiosity Searches For A New Drill Site
NASA's Curiosity Rover has made good progress over the past week moving southwest towards the Murray Buttes area of Gale Crater in search of an exposed block of Murray Formation bedrock suitable for drilling,
Curiosity drove 68 meters last weekend (Sol 1410-1411), 45 meters on Sol 1412, and a further 44 meters on Sol 1414 to place the robotic geologist within easy reach of bedrock drill targets that appear suitable for drilling.
A short drive on Sol 1416 should place Curiosity in position to deploy the rover's tool arm to brush away dust and do contact science. The MAHLI hand lens camera will take pictures of the brushed spot of bedrock, and if all looks good Curiosity will go ahead and drill a new hole for Curiosity's SAM instrument to provide a detailed chemical analysis.

+Adam Synergy ha ha ha, agreed,I am fine, professor. Thank you kindly.
4 years ago. My first month I was visiting your town.
Grimsby, also known as Great Grimsby, is a large town and seaport situated on the South Bank of the Humber Estuary, in England, close to where it reaches the North Sea. The town was traditionally in Lincolnshire until 1974, when it was absorbed into the new county of Humberside. After the abolition of Humberside in 1996, the town was returned to Lincolnshire. It now serves as the administrative centre of the North East Lincolnshire unitary authority. Grimsby developed as a major sea port on the east coast of England, hosting the largest fishing fleet in the world by the mid-twentieth century.

The fishing industry dramatically declined following the Cod Wars of the 1970s, and since then the town has battled with post-industrial decline. Since the 1990s the local council has encouraged food manufacturing, promoting the town as "Europe's food town." As one of the largest centres of population in Lincolnshire, the Grimsby-Cleethorpes conurbation acts as the cultural, shopping and industrial centre for a large area of northern and eastern Lincolnshire.

Sounds of space objects

  In the video you can hear the sound of the planets and space objects. Although we receive audio as it can not exist in the vacuum of space, but each planet and moon has a "signature" unique electromagnetic space and ground probes collected by the tool and the radiation to be heard by We have become sound.

Supermassive black holes do not give off any of their own light, hence the word "black" in their name. However, many black holes pull in, or accrete, surrounding material, and emit powerful bursts of X-rays. Collectively, these active black holes throughout the sky can be thought of a cosmic choir, singing in the language of X-rays. Their "song" is what astronomers call the cosmic X-ray background.
To date, NASA's Chandra mission has managed to pinpoint many of the individual black holes contributing to the X-ray background, but the ones that let out high-energy X-rays—those with the highest-pitched "voices"—have remained elusive.
New data from NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, has, for the first time, begun to pinpoint large numbers of the black holes sending out the high-energy X-rays. More technically, NuSTAR has made significant progress in resolving the high-energy X-ray background.
"We've gone from resolving just 2 percent of the high-energy X-ray background to 35 percent," says Fiona Harrison, Benjamin M. Rosen Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Caltech, the principal investigator of NuSTAR, and lead author of a new study describing the findings in an upcoming issue of The Astrophysical Journal. "We can see the most obscured black holes, hidden in thick gas and dust."

The NuSTAR mission is identifying which black holes erupt with the highest-energy X-rays.

+Nishe Bavidh Well, the data we have (compact and x-ray emitting) seem to support the model of a collapsar with a density greater than that of a neutron star.

And that's how science works - if other (verifiable and falsifiable) data arrive that contradict the model, the model is updated.

Antares tours Saturn's rings

Cassini watched as a bright star, Antares, passed behind Saturn's rings in this series of 15 photos captured on January 3, 2008. It is brighter where the rings are more transparent, and dims where the rings are more opaque.
