Every Space Exploration Mission Explained In One Detailed Poster (8 pics)

The result is a massive poster that shows just how much work goes into launching something into outer space. The inner solar system resembles a tangled web because it has been extensively explored. We can see how many missions to Jupiter and Saturn have focused on exploring their moons. The great distances of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto have made it difficult to send more than just a few missions to them.

Now we take a look at all the spacecraft we have sent into the cosmos. Les ondes gravitationnelles en quatre questions. Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par David Larousserie Prédites par Albert Einstein en 1916, les ondes gravitationnelles viennent d’être détectées par des instruments américains.

Les ondes gravitationnelles en quatre questions

Mais qu’est-ce exactement ? Qu’est-ce qu’une onde gravitationnelle ? Si l’Univers était un immense lac, ces ondes seraient l’analogue des cercles concentriques créés en surface après la chute d’un caillou. Watch: The facts behind the most common misconceptions about space. Space is big - no one's going to fight you on that fact - but the enormity of our cosmic backyard and the crazy physics that govern everything beyond it can be tough to comprehend.

Watch: The facts behind the most common misconceptions about space

So tough, the unofficial rule is if you think you've got it all figured out, you probably understand very little. It's no wonder that misconceptions about space are so easily spread among us, but do you want to know the best thing about getting the facts straight? The actual science is far more fascinating than those myths will ever be.

5 Of The Most Frightening Moments In The History Of Spaceflight

So what better time to look at some of the most hair-raising moments in space? We’ve been a space-faring species for almost six decades now, and along the way there have been some nail-biting moments when catastrophe seemed imminent. From seemingly doomed manned space missions to an incredible landing on another world, we take a look at some of the most terrifying near-misses to occur in the history of spaceflight.

Out of control in Earth orbit On March 16, 1966, Neil Armstrong launched on his first flight to space with David Scott aboard the Gemini 8 spacecraft, the sixth manned mission of the Gemini program – the precursor to the Apollo program. Several hours after launching, Gemini 8 docked with the Agena vehicle – the first ever successful space docking.

While we see space as a visually mysterious environment and relish in all the amazing photographs of the planets, galaxies, and solar systems, we don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the audible aspect of space.

NASA Actually Recorded Sound In Space, And It’s Absolutely Bone Chilling

As in sound! Wait a minute, is there even any sound in space? Technically, yes. There is sound as it exists in electromagnetic vibrations which pulsate in wavelengths.Wouldn’t it be cool to record what space actually sounds like? NASA thought so. NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft Takes Some Spectacular Pictures Of Outer Space (17 pics) Hubble Offered A Rare, Ring-Side Seat At The Death Of A Star. During its impressive 25 years the Hubble Space Telescope has captured numerous remarkable views of the universe, providing astronomers with a wealth of data for making astounding discoveries.

Hubble Offered A Rare, Ring-Side Seat At The Death Of A Star

Of all the beautiful astronomical objects observed by Hubble one of the most awe-inspiring is the massive, dying star V838 Moncerotis. Hubble’s longevity has provided astronomers with a series of detailed images of V838 Mon captured between May 2002 and September 2006: the result is a fascinating “time-lapse” that uniquely illuminates the evolution of this massive, super-giant star. Hubble’s exceptionally sharp focus of V838 Mon offered a ring-side seat at the slow death of the star and excited astrophysicists with the chance to study the physics of the light, matter and microscopic dust of the interstellar medium. V838 Monocerotis in April 2002, as the first flash of bright blue light emanates from the star.

Top 10 Unsolved Mysteries of Science. Despite what cable news may tell you, scientists don’t really squabble over if evolution is real (it is) or if the climate is changing faster than can be explained by naturally-occurring phenomena (it is) or if vaccines are regarded as safe and recommended for most children (they are).

Sure, there may be fine points within those categories that are debatable, but not to the extent that is commonly described by talking heads on TV. However, that’s not to say that scientists perfectly understand everything about the ways of the Universe. Physicist Brian Cox once said: “I'm comfortable with the unknown—that’s the point of science. There are places out there, billions of places out there, that we know nothing about. And the fact that we know nothing about them excites me, and I want to go out and find out about them. So what are some of the top mysteries keeping scientists busy? VIDEO - Illustris: la formation de l'univers retracée en 6 minutes. Certains refont le match, d'autres le Big Bang et ce qui a suivi. Ainsi, des scientifiques du M.I.T. (Massassuchetts Institute of Technology) ont reconstitué l'évolution d'une portion de l'univers visible et produit des images d'une précision jusque-là inégalée. Illustris est le nom de baptême de cet extraodinaire programme.

Grâce aux plus puissants ordinateurs de la planète (avec un ordinateur classique, les calculs auraient pris environ 2.000 ans), et 100.000 lignes de code informatique, les astronomes ont reconstitué l'évolution de la matière à l'intérieur d'un cube virtuel de 350 millions d'années-lumière de côté, soit 1/100.000 de l'univers visible.

Last night astronomers were able to detect a supernova in Messier 82 (M82), approximately 12 million light-years away from Earth. This might not sound too exciting, but this supernova, named PSN J09554214+6940260, just happens to be incredibly close and has the potential to provide tons of information about hard-to-study dark energy. Steve Fossey of University College London appears to be the first to announce the discovery with several astronomers around the globe quickly confirming the sighting.
