Sunset on Pluto: Breathtaking NASA Photo Shows Mountains, Wispy Atmosphere

The photo, which New Horizons took during its epic July 14 flyby of Pluto, captures a gorgeous sunset view. Towering ice mountains cast long shadows, and more than a dozen layers of the dwarf planet's wispy atmosphere are clearly visible. "This image really makes you feel you are there, at Pluto, surveying the landscape for yourself," New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, said in a statement today (Sept. 17). 12011282_914029742000064_8513540038517927715_n.jpg (JPEG Image, 800 × 600 pixels)

Lost GoPro is found 2 years later with breathtaking space footage! Using a high-altitude weather balloon, a group of students at Stanford University, sent a GoPro into space to gather data for an aerospace engineering dissertation.

Lost GoPro is found 2 years later with breathtaking space footage!

The launch took place about 32.2 km from the Grand Canyon, back in June 2013 and the GoPro reached 30 km in altitude during its 1h38m flight. Due to a technical problem, the group lost control of the machine despite being equipped with a GPS, and it landed 80 kilometers from where it was supposed to. “We were supposed to recover the GoPro and the phone two hours after the launch, but it ended up being two years,” Bryan Chan said.

“The GoPro and phone was projected to land in an area with cell coverage, but the problem was that the cell service coverage maps we relied on weren’t accurate, so the phone didn’t have signal as it came back to Earth. These Images Of The Milky Way Over Yellowstone Will Make Your Heart Race. The night sky is far more incredible than we often give it credit for; in fact it’s more breathtaking than the naked eye can see on its own.

These Images Of The Milky Way Over Yellowstone Will Make Your Heart Race

Kansas-based photographer David Lane spent four months taking images of the Milky Way extending over Yellowstone Park. As a result his images capture the true beauty of the Milky Way galaxy in its glittering splendor, replicating a stunning nighttime rainbow. Night photography is a tricky task that requires some technical skills. The night sky is never 100% dark thanks to the faint glow of lights given off by our planetary atmosphere. Lane adjusted the airglow saturation, increasing it by 10%. Dans ce sublime court-métrage, ce robot explore une planète désertique pour y faire naître de la végétation.

A team of international scientists used several of the world's most powerful telescopes to study the energy of the universe and conclude that the universe is slowly dying. The most comprehensive assessment of the energy output in the nearby universe reveals that today's produced energy is only about half of what it was 2 billion years ago.

A team of international scientists used several of the world's most powerful telescopes to study the energy of the universe and concluded that the universe is slowly dying. "We used as many space- and ground-based telescopes as we could get our hands on to measure the energy output of over 200,000 galaxies across as broad a wavelength range as possible," Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) team leader Simon Driver, of the University of Western Australia, said in a statement. The astronomers created a video explaining the slow death of the universe to illustrate the discovery. When the Big Bang created the energy of the universe about 13.8 billion years ago, some portion of that energy found itself locked up as mass. Survol historique de Pluton. La Lune en seulement 4 heures et sans carburant, grâce à l'EM Drive. Copieusement moqué pour son « impossibilité scientifique » il y a 15 ans, le concept de moteur EM Drive est finalement totalement faisable et envisageable selon plusieurs scientifiques et la Nasa.

How NASA's New Horizons Mission to Pluto Works (Infographic) By Karl Tate, Infographics Artist | March 30, 2015 07:00am ET The New Horizons probe will be the first spacecraft to study Pluto, the most well-known of the Kuiper Belt objects, which orbit in the frozen outskirts of the solar system. New Horizons will not stop at Pluto, but will slingshot past it to encounter an object called PT1 in January, 2019 before heading out of the solar system. New Horizons got a speed boost from Jupiter’s gravity in 2007. Without it, the probe would not have reached Pluto until the year 2036. Wheel Worries: Mars Rover Curiosity Dealing With Damage. NASA's Mars rover Curiosity faces ongoing wheel wear and tear as it continues its trek across the rock-strewn Red Planet. The car-size Curiosity rover has been on duty since landing on Mars in August 2012. Curiosity has six aluminum wheels, each with its own individual motor.

Einstein's Theory of Relativity Explained (Infographic) The theories of relativity by Albert Einstein revolutionized how the world thinks about space, time, mass, energy and gravity. FULL STORY: General Relativity at 100: Einstein's Famous Theory Has Aged Well Prior to Einstein, the laws of Isaac Newton were used to understand the physics of motion.

In 1687, Newton wrote that gravity affects everything in the universe. The same force of gravity that pulled an apple down from a tree kept the Earth in motion around the sun. But Newton never puzzled out the source of gravity. Yeah, Well That's Your Opinion... La planète Mars au plus près de la Terre dans les prochains jours.
