The Eclipse is Coming... (https://goo.gl/QhZCb7)

Never have so many people stopped to look at the sky in the middle of the day! On Monday, the one hundred year solar eclipses will happen all over America and everyone is ready for the big day.

Although we are only expected to see about 58% coverage of the eclipse, the blockage of the sun in the middle of the day will be an experience worth noting for San Diego communities.

This solar eclipse is big news all over the country, so many schools are taking advantage of the opportunity to teach kids about the importance of the eclipse. For kids that are not in school during the eclipse, parents are enjoying this special time and sharing educational facts with kids.

Here are some tips on how to safely view the eclipse and enjoy this solar event that encourages the country to stop for a minute to celebrate nature https://goo.gl/QhZCb7.

Voyager at the age of 40 、Keep Reaching for the Stars 、。。
By NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory 、。。

In the late summer of 1977, NASA launched the twin Voyager spacecraft .. These remote ambassadors still beam messages back to Earth 40 years later, with data from their deep space travels .. Voyager 1 is about 13 billion miles from Earth in interstellar space, and Voyager 2 is not far behind .. For more about the Voyager mission, visit :-
https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/voyager/

Humanity's farthest and longest-lived spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2, achieve 40 years of operation and exploration this August and September .. Despite their vast distance, they continue to communicate with NASA daily, still probing the final frontier 、。。

Their story has not only impacted generations of current and future scientists and engineers, but also Earth's culture, including film, art and music .. Each spacecraft carries a Golden Record of Earth sounds, pictures and messages .. Since the spacecraft could last billions of years, these circular time capsules could one day be the only traces of human civilization 、。。

"I believe that few missions can ever match the achievements of the Voyager spacecraft during their four decades of exploration," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) at NASA Headquarters .. "They have educated us to the unknown wonders of the universe and truly inspired humanity to continue to explore our solar system and beyond." 、。。

The Voyagers have set numerous records in their unparalleled journeys .. In 2012, Voyager 1, which launched on Sept. 5, 1977, became the only spacecraft to have entered interstellar space .. Voyager 2, launched on Aug. 20, 1977, is the only spacecraft to have flown by all four outer planets -- Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune .. Their numerous planetary encounters include discovering the first active volcanoes beyond Earth, on Jupiter's moon Io; hints of a subsurface ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa; the most Earth-like atmosphere in the solar system, on Saturn's moon Titan; the jumbled-up, icy moon Miranda at Uranus; and icy-cold geysers on Neptune's moon Triton 、。。

Though the spacecraft have left the planets far behind .. And neither will come remotely close to another star for 40,000 years .. The two probes still send back observations about conditions where our Sun's influence diminishes and interstellar space begins 、。。

Voyager 1, now almost 13 billion miles from Earth, travels through interstellar space northward out of the plane of the planets .. The probe has informed researchers that cosmic rays, atomic nuclei accelerated to nearly the speed of light, are as much as four times more abundant in interstellar space than in the vicinity of Earth .. This means the heliosphere, the bubble-like volume containing our solar system's planets and solar wind, effectively acts as a radiation shield for the planets .. Voyager 1 also hinted that the magnetic field of the local interstellar medium is wrapped around the heliosphere 、。。

Voyager 2, now almost 11 billion miles from Earth, travels south and is expected to enter interstellar space in the next few years .. The different locations of the two Voyagers allow scientists to compare right now two regions of space where the heliosphere interacts with the surrounding interstellar medium using instruments that measure charged particles, magnetic fields, low-frequency radio waves and solar wind plasma .. Once Voyager 2 crosses into the interstellar medium, they will also be able to sample the medium from two different locations simultaneously 、。。

"None of us knew, when we launched 40 years ago, that anything would still be working, and continuing on this pioneering journey," said Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist based at Caltech in Pasadena, California .. "The most exciting thing they find in the next five years is likely to be something that we didn't know was out there to be discovered." 、。。

The twin Voyagers have been cosmic overachievers, thanks to the foresight of mission designers .. By preparing for the radiation environment at Jupiter, the harshest of all planets in our solar system, the spacecraft were well equipped for their subsequent journeys .. Both Voyagers carry redundant systems that allow the spacecraft to switch to backup systems autonomously when necessary, as well as long-lasting power supplies .. Each Voyager has three radioisotope thermoelectric generators, devices that use the heat energy generated from the decay of plutonium 238 .. Only half of it will be gone after 88 years 、。。

Space is almost empty, so the Voyagers are not at a significant level of risk of bombardment by large objects .. However, Voyager 1's interstellar space environment is not a complete void. It's filled with clouds of dilute material remaining from stars that exploded as supernovae millions of years ago .. This material doesn't pose a danger to the spacecraft, but is a key part of the environment that the Voyager mission is helping scientists study and characterize 、。。

Because the Voyagers' power decreases by four watts per year, engineers are learning how to operate the spacecraft under ever-tighter power constraints .. And to maximize the Voyagers' lifespans, they also have to consult documents written decade's earlier describing commands and software, in addition to the expertise of former Voyager engineers 、。。

"The technology is many generations old, and it takes someone with 1970s design experience to understand how the spacecraft operate and what updates can be made to permit them to continue operating today and into the future," said Suzanne Dodd, Voyager project manager based at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena 、。。

Team members estimate they will have to turn off the last science instrument by 2030 .. However, even after the spacecraft go silent, they'll continue on their trajectories at their present speed of more than 30,000 mph (48,280 kilometers per hour), completing an orbit within the Milky Way every 225 million years 、。。

The Voyager spacecraft were built by JPL, which continues to operate both .. The Voyager missions are part of the NASA Heliophysics System Observatory, sponsored by the Heliophysics Division of the Science Mission Directorate 、。。

Bright Airglow & Milky Way over Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a country in Central Asia. Landlocked and mountainous, Kyrgyzstan is bordered by Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west and southwest, Tajikistan to the southwest and China to the east.
(Source: Wikipedia)

Airglow: The unusual pattern is created by atmospheric gravity waves, waves of alternating air pressure that can grow with height as the air thins, in this case about 90 kilometers up. Unlike auroras powered by collisions with energetic charged particles and seen at high latitudes, airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light in a chemical reaction. More typically seen near the horizon, airglow keeps the night sky from ever being completely dark.

Trump vowed in January to hire 5,000 new Border Patrol agents. Now there are actually fewer.

Five days after President Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants.

Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220, and immigration agents are on track to deport 10,000 fewer people this year than in President Obama’s last year in office, the latest figures show.

"In an early issue of Amazing Stories, Gernsback laid out his foundational mission statement. "Having made scientifiction a hobby since I was 8 years old, I probably know as much about it as any one," he wrote, "and in the long run experience will teach just what type of stories is acclaimed by the vast majority." Within the text of the editorial note, Gernsback exhorted himself to "Give the readers the very best type of stories that you can get hold of," while recognizing fully that this would be a "pioneer job."

"Gernsback wasn't the first to pen a science fiction story, granted—the inaugural issue of Amazing Stories featured reprints of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, and indeed there are far older works that could plausibly fit the description. What he did do was put a name to it, and collect under one roof the output of disparate authors in search of unifying legitimacy."

I really hate to see things like this get posted by sites such as +Android Authority and absolutely no credit given to the developer which in this cases is +Anthony Nguyen

As hard as these developers work to make these things, these sites could take a minute of their time to make sure the developers get credit for their hard work.

Scientists Discover TRAPPIST-1 is Older Than Our Solar System

In February of 2017, a team of European astronomers announced the discovery of a seven-planet system orbiting the nearby star TRAPPIST-1. Aside from the fact that all seven planets were rocky, there was the added bonus of three of them orbiting within TRAPPIST-1’s habitable zone. As such, multiple studies have been conducted that have sought to determine whether or not any planets in the system could be habitable.

When it comes to habitability studies, one of the key factors to consider is the age of the star system. Basically, young stars have a tendency to flare up and release harmful bursts of radiation while planets that orbit older stars have been subject to radiation for longer periods of time. Thanks to a new study by a pair of astronomers, it is now known that the TRAPPIST-1 system is twice as old as the Solar System.

The study, which will be published in The Astrophysical Journal under the title “On The Age Of The TRAPPIST-1 System“, was led by Adam Burgasser, an astronomer at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). He was joined by Eric Mamajek, the deputy program scientist for NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration Program (EEP) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
