The "Best Engineering Tool" in Space: Duct Tape - Universe Today

From the Apollo missions in the 1970’s to the International Space Station today, duct tape has been used as quick fixes and semi-permanent solutions to a variety of tasks. In a story released today from NASA documenting the events of the Apollo 17 in 1972, duct tape became the saviour of astronauts Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt as they sped around on the lunar surface in their moonbuggy. Damage to the buggy’s wheel arch could have put the pair at risk and may have curtailed the surface mission (pictured). Astronauts Have Done So, So Much With Duct Tape And Electrical Tape.

Air Force identifies and tracks objects in space. The new system’s initial operational capability is scheduled for 2018. With critical design review completed, the Space Fence team is focused on production of technology that will bring the system online. Space Fence will use Gallium Nitride (GaN) powered S-band ground-based radars to provide the Air Force with uncued detection, tracking and accurate measurement of space objects, primarily in low-earth orbit.

The Physics Defying EmDrive Just Passed Peer Review. Here's What You Need to Know

It generated the usual host of reactions, ranging from “it totally works” hype to outright dismissal. It’s rare for a piece of technology to inspire such polarizing reactions; however, these reactions are rather understandable. The EmDrive, otherwise known as a radio frequency resonant cavity thruster, makes use of microwaves that are bounced around inside an asymmetrical-shaped cavity. To break this down a bit more, the claim is, you bounce microwaves back and forth inside a truncated cone, and the result will be a thrust toward the narrow end of the cone. That seems simple enough, yes? In short, it provides thrust without the need for a propellant, which at face value, violates Newton’s Third Law of Motion.

There’s a remote chance that inexplicable light variations in a star in the Northern Cross may be caused by the works of an alien civilization. 1,480 light years from Earth twinkles one of the greatest mysteries of recent times.

The Search Is On For Alien Signals Around Tabby's Star - Universe Today

There in the constellation Cygnus the Swan, you’ll find a dim, ordinary-looking point of light with an innocent sounding name — Tabby’s Star. Named for Louisiana State University astronomer Tabetha Boyajian, who was the lead author on a paper about its behavior, this star has so confounded astronomers with its unpredictable ups and downs in its brightness, they’ve gone to war on the object, drilling down on it with everything from the Hubble to the monster 393.7-inch (10-meter) Keck Telescope in Hawaii.

On Aug. 24, astronomers announced they had found a possibly Earth-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the sun.

New Planet 2016: Complete Coverage of Proxima b’s Discovery

The planet, called Proxima b, is about 1.3 times the mass of Earth and is 4.22 light-years away. Main Story: Found! Potentially Earth-Like Planet at Proxima Centauri Is Closest Ever Scientists have found clear evidence of a planet around Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our sun. The planet, called Proxima b, appears to be rocky and might be warm enough to host liquid water, and thus be habitable. See our complete coverage of this newfound world, known as Proxima b, which may be able to host life: Project Daedalus – Interstellar Mission. Daedalus Interstellar Probe - image copyright Adrian Mann This was a thirteen member volunteer engineering design study conducted between 1973 and 1978, to demonstrate that Interstellar travel is feasible in theory. The project related to the Fermi Paradox first postulated by the Italian Physicist Enrico Fermi in the 1940s. Kielder Observatory. James Oberg's Pioneering Space. From: "Space World Magazine" January 1975 issue.

Editor's Introduction Twelve years ago Major Yuri Gagarin made the world's first manned space flight. There were many contemporary rumors that earlier manned shots had failed, killing a series of unknown cosmonauts. Without access to the actual Russian space files, no one can ultimately say whether or not these alleged secret fatal flights ever really took place. Vostochny (formerly Svobodny) Cosmodrome. One of the many problems the Russian government faced upon the collapse of the Soviet Union was access to space launch facilities. The Drake Equation. "What do we need to know about to discover life in space? " How can we estimate the number of technological civilizations that might exist among the stars? While working as a radio astronomer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia, Dr. Frank Drake conceived an approach to bound the terms involved in estimating the number of technological civilizations that may exist in our galaxy.

The Drake Equation, as it has become known, was first presented by Drake in 1961 and identifies specific factors thought to play a role in the development of such civilizations. Although there is no unique solution to this equation, it is a generally accepted tool used by the scientific community to examine these factors.-- Frank Drake, 1961 Where, What is beyond our Solar System? WIRED Explains the mystery of the icy Kuiper Belt. Whether it's 'my very early morning jam sandwich' or 'many vile earthlings', everyone has a memorable way to list off the planets in our Solar System. But beyond the mnemonics, some of the most interesting and unexplored objects lurk beyond the stuff of textbooks in an icy region known as the Kuiper Belt. This area of our Solar System, which stretches out for billions of miles past Neptune, has been providing astronomers with a host of mysteries to solve over the past few years. The most famous among the objects lurking beyond Neptune is many people’s favourite ‘planet’ Pluto which was robbed of the aforementioned title in 2006.

When Professor Mike Brown from Caltech discovered the dwarf planet Eris, the biggest object to be found in the Solar system over the past 150 years, Pluto was demoted to dwarf planet status. But planet or no planet, since Nasa’s New Horizons spacecraft reached Pluto in 2015 it has been repainting the picture we had of the world. Some Satellite Photos of Earth at Night.
