JUST IN: NASA has decided to skip the next week’s launch attempt of its new moon rocket Artemis 1, because of a tropical storm that’s expected to become a major hurricane. Currently churning in the Caribbean, tropical Storm Ian is expected to become a hurricane by Monday and...
...slam into Florida’s Gulf coast by Thursday. The entire state, including NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, is in the cone showing the probable path of the storm’s center.
Amid these forecast uncertainties, NASA decided to forgo Tuesday’s planned launch attempt and instead... prepare the 322-foot (98-meter) rocket for a possible return to its hangar. Managers will decide Sunday whether to haul it off the launch pad.

Quand les Arabes dominaient l'espace

« (...) En 353H (964G), un astronome du nom d’Abū l­-Ḥusayn ʿAbd al­-Raḥmān ibn ʿU­mar, dit al­-Ṣūfī, publie dans la Perse des chiites de la dynastie des Bouyides un ouvrage depuis resté dans les annales de l’Histoire :

⬇️
...le Kitāb suwar al­-kawākib al­thābita. Il s’agit al­ ors de l’ouvrage le plus complet écrit jusqu’ici sur les étoiles. Dans ce livre constitué de textes assorti de dessins d’animaux en couleurs représentant les astres et les constel­lations, al­-Ṣūfī décrit...

⬇️
...sur la base de ses obser­vations, la position, la magnitude, la couleur et la luminosité de l’ensemble des astres connus. Pour chaque constellation, il propose alors deux dessins, l’un de l’extérieur d’un globe céleste et l’autre de l’intérieur.

Just my daily reminder that #NASA maintains conformance with Standard Classification Guidelines.

#ufotwitter
I just have to wonder what is truly considered classified and not classified. Obviously the only people that truly know are the ones with access to those compartments, which are classified. So if you don't have clearance, you don't actually have any clue.

If someone who's worked for NASA (directly or indirectly as a contractor) claims that X isn't classified, there are 3 possibilities:
1. They know it's classified and are lying. This is a sign of psychological instability or another problem, and we can get their clearance yanked.

Quand tu t'apperçois que la #Nasa ne sait plus comment elle est allé sur la #Lune il y a 50 ans, tu comprends pourquoi on ne sait pas comment ont été construites les pyramides d'Egypte ! 🤣

J'hésite entre ces 2 citations :
"on n'arrête pas le progrès"
et
"ils ne savaient pas que c'ètait impossible alors ils l'ont fait"
🤣
"#Artemis est différent de la mission #Apollo : va 70 000 km au delà de la #Lune"
Qu'y a-t-il à voir au delà de la Lune ?

Will be surprised if #Artemis1 launch happens today. If or when today's countdown reaches T-10 mins they'll pause for half an hour and, if everything looks OK and they can fit it within the 2-hour window (opening 13:33 UK time), set a specific launch time.
Apparently there's a problem with one of the four main RS-25 engines and a crack has developed between two of the tanks. blogs.nasa.gov/artemis/2022/0… I'd suggest this makes today's #Artemis1 #SLS launch highly unlikely. #Artemis
Even if (as currently seems likely) today's #Artemis1 launch is scrubbed because of the issues, #NASA engineers will proceed as far as they can with the countdown as this is a test flight and they will want to test as many of the #SLS systems as possible. #Artemis

#NASA's James Webb Space Telescope detects carbon dioxide in a distant world's atmosphere for the first time

#JamesWebbSpaceTelescope

businessinsider.in/science/news/n…
NASA's #JamesWebbSpaceTelescope have detected evidence of carbon dioxide in a world beyond our solar system.

The planet, called WASP-39 b, is a gas giant orbiting a sun-like star about 700 light-years away, where temperatures are consistently about 900 degrees Celsius.

#NASA
While the planet was first discovered in 2011, Webb's sensitive infrared instruments allowed researchers to analyze it in detail, definitely detecting carbon dioxide there for the first time.

#NASA released an audio clip of a #BlackHole, and it's pretty spooky

businessinsider.in/science/news/n…
#NASA recently revealed that black holes emit noises that sound like ghostly alien moans and wails.

Listen to the clip below, where NASA captured the eerie sounds of #blackhole pressure rippling through the Perseus galaxy cluster.

"The misconception that there is no sound in space originates because most space is a ~vacuum, providing no way for sound waves to travel. A galaxy cluster has so much gas that we've picked up actual sound," the @NASA account tweeted.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that the Earth may be hit by a geomagnetic storm today. To recall, an explosion had occurred on the Sun on Sunday and it hurled a C9.3-class solar flare toward us. #NASA
newsbytesapp.com/news/science/g…
Incidents of geomagnetic storms are expected to become more commonplace as the Sun is embarking on a new 11-year solar cycle. This new storm predicted by NOAA is unlikely to cause any significant damage. However, we might be hit with power outage.
The huge explosion on the Sun was initially hidden by its edge. However, hot debris spewing from the site was recorded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA’s) Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The speeches about the capital that millionaires contribute in taxes and how much the poor and the middle class receive from this forced generosity, are a whole literary genre … 🙄 the millionaire factory of #myths 🙄
What's more, this genre is cultivated above all by those from below, as the principle of the genius of propaganda Edward Bernays says: “you should never say that what you want to sell is good, but make others say it”.
That the poor and the workers (oh! excuse the redundancy) defend the rich as kind donors, is the direct result of such a publicity strategy and, as Bernays himself knew, it is not just a massive inoculation but an exploitation of the weaknesses of the consumer, as is the desire

No. La concentración del principal gas de efecto invernadero (dióxido de carbono) es la más alta de los últimos 700.000 años. Es causada por las actividades del ser humano, principalmente, y desencadenan en el #CalentamientoGlobal. Si, 1°C es mucho.

1/ A digestible thread on gravitational lensing, the phenomenon which allowed us to see these funky, most distant galaxies yet in the JWST deep field image. Image
2/ Rays of light from a distant star or a galaxy can be bent by the gravity of a massive object, such as another galaxy or a galaxy cluster, as the latter warps the fabric of space.

🖼️#NASA/#ESA Image
3/ From our vantage point, the galaxy or galaxy cluster acts as a powerful magnifying glass that distorts and amplifies the light from distant objects behind it.

Pretty amazing, right?

१९९६ मध्ये या दुर्बिणीचं काम सुरु झालं तेव्हा तिला 'नेक्स्ट जनरेशन स्पेस टेलिस्कोप' असं संबोधण्यात आलं. पण नंतर २००२ मध्ये नासाचे दुसरे प्रशासक म्हणून नियुक्त झालेल्या 'जेम्स वेब' यांच्या स्मरणार्थ या दुर्बिणीला 'जेम्स वेब टेलिस्कोप' हे नाव द्यायचं ठरलं.

#NASA-led #JamesWebbSpaceTelescope's breathtaking images of the universe's past have taken the world by storm.

As we inch closer to unravelling more cosmic secrets, here's how researchers from #India plan to use the #JWST.

Read: weather.com/en-IN/india/sp…

Thread👇
#NASA had opened up submissions for Guaranteed Time Observations to reward scientists with 16% use of the JWST observatory for the first 3 cycles.

Out of the 1,173 proposals, two astronomers hail from India: Dr #JessyJose from @IiserTirupati & Dr #Puravankara from @TIFRScience.
Dr Jose, along with an international research team from the US, UK and Australia, will be examining the Galactic Centre Cloud (GCC) — the central molecular zone of our Milky Way — in April 2023.

They have been allotted 27.3 hours over the access period of 12 months.

@jornane_no @Warcop I think we're mixing up two different cloud use cases here, which have similarities but also huge differences. We also have to look at the size of the company we're talking about. 1/
@jornane_no @Warcop A: You need infrastructure to run your product/service. Yes, either way, you will need people who develop the software, deploy it somewhere and operate it there. IMHO companies should focus on their distinctive features and buy the commodities from suppliers. 2/
@jornane_no @Warcop The smaller your company is, the more this matters. Like a small business would not invest in their own electricity infrastructure and a whole electricity department because it's obvious that it is cheaper to rent an office with batteries included. 3/

Uno de los grandes misterios de la astronmía son las ráfagas de radio rápidas o #FRB (Fast Radio Bursts), pulsos extremadamente brillantes de radio que provienen de galaxias lejanas. Liberan tanta energía en un milisegundo como lo hace el Sol durante muchos días.
📸 NRAO/Vimeo
No se sabe qué las producen, pero la fuerza que liberan en un amplio espectro de radio es extremadamente poderosa. La gran mayoría de las observadas se producen en galaxias distantes (3.000 millones de a.l). Sus fuentes son objetos de menos de 100 kilométros de diametro.
📸#NASA
Hay varias teorías que tratan de explicar los FRBs: de colisiones de estrellas de neutrones y agujeros negros hasta sistemas de propulsión de civilizaciones extraterrestres. De magnetares hasta choques materia-antimateria. Muchos se inclinan por diversos orígenes.
