These six narrow-angle color images were made from the first ever 'portrait' of the solar system taken by Voyager 1, which was more than 4 billion miles from Earth and about 32 degrees above the ecliptic. The spacecraft acquired a total of 60 frames for a mosaic of the solar system which shows six of the planets.

Naturens «naturlige» tilstand kan godt tenkes til å være kaos og kaos er vanskelig å gripe fatt i – med eller uten matematikk. Og kaos er overalt. Vi snakket om vær forrige gang. Jeg vil en gang ti…

The Lagoon Nebula

This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the Lagoon Nebula, an object with a deceptively tranquil name. The region is filled with intense winds from hot stars, churning funnels of gas, and energetic star formation, all embedded within an intricate haze of gas and pitch-dark dust.

Hi Everyone!

CosmoQuest currently has a number of different surveys online to solicit and gather input about how they can better serve the public in their various outreach activities - everything from how to help science teachers encourage their students to use NASA data in their Science Fair projects, to what online classes folks want, and what podcast topics their listeners want to hear.

As is always the case, when more people take the time to respond to surveys, the more globally representative the information is that is gathered leading to broader appeal.

I realize that not everyone will have insight into all of the areas covered by these five surveys, but the fact that you are in this community suggests that you can probably provide your opinions on at least one of the surveys!

So if you would, please visit the following links and participate in as many of the surveys for which you feel you can provide input. None of the surveys is very long, and should only take about 5 minutes to complete.

Also, it would help TREMENDOUSLY if you would also share these surveys with your own circle of family, friends, acquaintances, and other communities/groups/etc... remember, the larger the data set, the better the information gathered.

The five surveys are:
  — Citizen Science: http://bit.ly/CQsurveyCitSci2   — Teaching Science Fair: http://buff.ly/2cO0eoW   — Podcast Listeners: http://buff.ly/2cL4hFu   — SME Training: http://bit.ly/CQsurveySME   — Online Astronomy Classes (non-credit): http://buff.ly/2cXlnPj

From everyone at CosmoQuest, thanks in advance!

Space Shuttle Discovery
(Space Shuttle Discovery launches from NASA Kennedy Space Center Launch Pad 39A on mission STS-124 on May 31, 2008)
Space Shuttle Discovery is one of the orbiters from NASA's Space Shuttle program and the third of five fully operational orbiters to be built. Its first mission, STS-41-D, flew from August 30 to September 5, 1984. Over 27 years of service it launched and landed 39 times, gathering more spaceflights than any other spacecraft to date. Discoveryperformed both research and International Space Station (ISS) assembly missions. It also carried the HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE into orbit. Discovery was the first operational shuttle to be retired, followed by Endeavour and then Atlantis. Discovery was retired after completing its final mission, STS 133 on March 9, 2011.

Voyager Golden Record
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyager_Golden_Record

The Voyager Golden Records are phonograph records that were included aboard both Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. They contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. Neither Voyager spacecraft is heading toward any particular star, but Voyager 1 will pass within 1.6 light-years of the star Gliese 445, currently in the constellation Camelopardalis, in about 40,000 years.[1]

Carl Sagan noted that "The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this 'bottle' into the cosmic 'ocean' says something very hopeful about life on this planet."[2] Thus the record is best seen as a time capsule

The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University. The selection of content for the record took almost a year. Sagan and his associates assembled 116 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind, thunder and animals (including the songs of birds and whales). To this they added musical selections from different cultures and eras, spoken greetings in 55 ancient and modern languages, and printed messages from U.S. president Jimmy Carter and U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim. The record also includes the inspirational message Per aspera ad astra in Morse code.

The collection of images includes many photographs and diagrams both in black and white, and color. The first images are of scientific interest, showing mathematical and physical quantities, the Solar System and its planets, DNA, and human anatomy and reproduction. Care was taken to include not only pictures of humanity, but also some of animals, insects, plants and landscapes. Images of humanity depict a broad range of cultures. These images show food, architecture, and humans in portraits as well as going about their day-to-day lives. Many pictures are annotated with one or more indications of scales of time, size, or mass. Some images contain indications of chemical composition. All measures used on the pictures are defined in the first few images using physical references that are likely to be consistent anywhere in the universe.

The musical selection is also varied, featuring artists such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Stravinsky, Guan Pinghu, Blind Willie Johnson, Chuck Berry, Kesarbai Kerkar and Valya Balkanska. The inclusion of Berry's Johnny B. Goode was controversial, with some claiming that rock music was "adolescent", to which Sagan replied, "There are a lot of adolescents on the planet."[4] The selection of music for the record was completed by a team composed of Carl Sagan, Linda Salzman Sagan, Frank Drake, Ann Druyan, artist Jon Lomberg, and Timothy Ferris, who was an editor for Rolling Stone at the time.[5]

The Golden Record also carries an hour long recording of the brainwaves of Ann Druyan. During the recording of the brainwaves, Druyan thought of many topics, including Earth's history, civilizations and the problems they face, and what it was like to fall in love.

After NASA had received criticism over the nudity on the Pioneer plaque (line drawings of a naked man and woman), the agency chose not to allow Sagan and his colleagues to include a photograph of a nude man and woman on the record. Instead, only a silhouette of the couple was included.[6] However, the record does contain "Diagram of vertebrate evolution", by Jon Lomberg, with drawings of an anatomically correct naked male and naked female, showing external organs.[7]

The pulsar map and hydrogen molecule diagram are shared in common with the Pioneer plaque.

The 116 images are encoded in analogue form and composed of 512 vertical lines. The remainder of the record is audio, designed to be played at 16⅔ revolutions per minute.

Carl Sagan suggested that The Beatles song "Here Comes the Sun" be included on the record, but the record company EMI, which held the copyrights to the song, declined.[8]

In July 2015, NASA uploaded the audio contents of the record to the audio streaming service SoundCloud
