    SWRI To Plan Pluto Orbiter Mission

    Published 30th October 2019



    NASA has funded Southwest Research Institute to study the important attributes, feasibility and cost of a possible future Pluto orbiter mission. This study will develop the spacecraft and payload design requirements and make preliminary cost and risk assessments for new technologies.

    The study is one of 10 different mission studies that NASA is sponsoring to prepare for the next Planetary Science Decadal Survey. The results of these studies will be delivered to the National Academy Planetary Decadal Study that will begin in 2020.

    Rarely Seen Gravity Waves Captured Rippling In Earth's Atmosphere

    Published 28th October 2019



    The atmosphere is fluid. This means it's subject to fluid dynamics, such as circulation, currents, and, yes, gravity waves. The atmosphere is always in motion, so these phenomena happen all the time; but actually seeing them is another matter.

    Well, thanks to weather satellites, now you can take a mighty gawk at atmospheric gravity waves that rippled out over Western Australia last week.

    Not to be confused with gravitational waves, which are disturbances in the curvature of spacetime created by massive acceleration, gravity waves, also known as buoyancy waves, are a physical phenomenon where waves are generated in any fluid medium, such as waves at the beach, or ripples in a glass of water.

    Second-Ever Interstellar Comet Contains Alien Water

    Published 30th October 2019



    Astronomers have for the first time spotted signs of water in our Solar System that originated somewhere else. The alien water seems to be spraying off comet 2I/Borisov, which is flying towards the Sun on a journey from interstellar space.

    “There’s water — that’s cool, that’s great,” says Olivier Hainaut, an astronomer at the European Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany. The discovery isn’t surprising, he says, because most comets contain a lot of water. But confirming its presence in an interstellar comet is an important step towards understanding how water might travel between the stars.

    Four Meteor Showers To Light Up The Skies In November

    Published 31st October 2019

    This month there are four meteor showers. The Southern Taurids, the Northern Taurids, the Leonids and the November Orionids.

    Watch for Taurid fireballs!
    November 6, 2019, is the peak date of the long-lasting South Taurid meteor shower. These rather slow-moving meteors produce the greatest numbers in the few hours after midnight.

    The Northern Taurids are visible before midnight for a week centered on November 12.
    Both the South and North Taurids are active from late October to early December. According to the American Meteor Society (AMS), the Taurids (both branches) are rich in fireballs and are often responsible for increased number of fireball reports.

    Leonid meteor shower
    The annual Leonid meteor shower is expected to reach peak activity in the early hours of November 17. In a dark sky you can see up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. This shower has been known to produce meteor storms. The Leonids produced meteor storms of hundreds to thousands of meteors per hour at the peak each year from 1998 to 2002. The best viewing time is after midnight, when the constellation Leo rises above the eastern horizon. Leonids can be viewed at any place on Earth, given the sky is clear.

    November Orionids
    November Orionids peak on the 28th. The constellation Orion is familiar to most skywatchers. The radiant is near Orion's head. You can see a rate of about 5 meteors per hour.

    For best meteor viewing, experts suggest going to a location away from city lights, dressing warmly, and lie flat on your back and look straight up. No special viewing equipment needed - just your eyes.

    Have a nice month and happy skywatching!

    Clear Skies Everyone!

    Chris Blackerby (COO), & Ron Lopez (President, U.S.) | Astroscale | Space Debris Removal

    Published 31st October 2019

    In this episode, Astroscale's Chris Blackerby (COO), and Ron Lopez (President, U.S.) discuss their company and their plan to help clean up debris from space.

    Just as society is dealing with issues of pollution of our land and oceans, we also have to address the growing amount of debris polluting space. There are now millions of pieces of debris posing a threat to our orbital highway, and these uncontrolled hazards can cause potential damage to the many active satellites that are providing daily benefits to society. If we don’t start addressing the issue of space debris now we will endanger active satellites and the benefits they bring us here on Earth.

    Even 'Goldilocks' Exoplanets Need A Well-Behaved Star

    Published 31st October 2019



    An exoplanet may seem like the perfect spot to set up housekeeping, but before you go there, take a closer look at its star.

    Rice University astrophysicists are doing just that, building a computer model to help judge how a star's own atmosphere impacts its planets, for better or worse.

    By narrowing the conditions for habitability, they hope to refine the search for potentially habitable planets. Astronomers now suspect that most of the billions of stars in the sky have at least one planet. To date, Earth-bound observers have spotted nearly 4,000 of them.

    I-Team: Former Sen. Harry Reid Talks UFOs In Sit-Down Interview

    Published 31st October 2019

    Former U.S. Senator Harry Reid wants to clarify some bad information being dispensed by the Pentagon about a secret study of UFOs. It was authorized by Reid and other lawmakers more than a decade ago.

    The UFO study was kept quiet until two years ago, and since then, a lot of misinformation has surfaced about the purpose of the study and who worked for it. Senator Reid sat down with the I-Team’s George Knapp for an exclusive interview.

    The Fermi Paradox: Rare Technology

    Published 31st October 2019

    The Fermi Paradox, the big question of where all the aliens are, has many proposed solutions focusing on what might lower the odds of intelligent species arising on another world, or what might end technological civilizations or cause them to go unseen by us and our SETI efforts. But what if intelligence rarely leads to technological civilizations in the first place? Could there be countless planets in our galaxy occupied by species who never came to value technology?

    What Does A Solar Eclipse Look Like From The Edge Of Space? | Hyperlapse @ 165,000 Feet

    Published 1st November 2019

    In August 2017 we travelled to Wyoming to film a solar eclipse. We launched a high altitude weather balloon filled with helium to an altitude exceeding 50km, timing the apex of the flight to coincide with totality.

    Using a series of cameras aligned with nanometre precision, we filmed 360 degrees of footage for three hours from launch. On landing, we stitched the footage together and digitally stabilised the footage frame by frame to artificially lock the viewer perspective on the horizon, cropping down to a traditional 16:9 ratio. Finally, we speed-ramped the footage to create the world's first hyperlapse of an eclipse from the edge of space.

    For more information about our launch, check out our article about the project: https://www.sentintospace.com/post/so...

    To see the launch and some more amazing moments from the flight in full 360, see the BBC's video: https://youtu.be/53PvDEkgbno

    Jim Fuller | Sounds Of The Stars: Imaging Star Guts With Cosmic Music

    Published 2nd November 2019

    What lies at the center of a star? A stellar core is surrounded by a million Earth’s worth of plasma, so we cannot see it directly. However, the immense power of a star’s radiation causes nearly all stars to pulsate, creating “star quakes” at their surfaces. These oscillations are a collection of musical notes that uniquely define each star and are determined by its internal structure, just as the sound of a musical instrument is determined by its size and shape. Join me for a cosmic symphony as we journey to the center of the Sun, Saturn, white dwarfs, red giants, and heartbeat stars.

    Echo360 Two-Pane Video Stream: https://echo360.org/lesson/G_ddc1c2c....000/classroom

    The stars vibrate at different frequencies, producing "music" that our telescopes can "hear". These vibrations allow us to probe the interior of the star, down to its very core. Presentation: 05:05; speaker Q&A: 31:30; panel Q&A: 43:23
