270/365-For the riders who prefer to live on the edge, #Aprilia #SR150 #SR160 #RACE is perfect. The scooter gets racy graphics, a single-channel ABS, a semi-digital instrument console, displaying fuel level, time, 2 trip meters, odometer, and a USB Phone charger. #BikerLife ImageImageImageImage
271/365-The Fastest Indian, was the name given to the #Bajaj #Pulsar220F, the carburetted variant of the legendary 220cc sports bike from BAL launched in 2009. The 220F churned out 20.9bhp and 18.55 Nm and had a top speed of 134 Kmph yet returning good mileage of 35 kmpl. ImageImageImageImage

Per morning DPC: #OFT2 launch weather I think I understood 50% go, and the crew asked for @nasa TV to be uplinked to them so they can watch. #ISS #Exp65
Pressure on the #ISS: 752mmHg and on the Prk: 176mmHg.
Many beams, booms and brackets that were removed from #MLM #Nauka yesterday are too large to be disposed by Russian vehicles so they have to be disposed by USOS cargo vehicles. #ISS

Q: Why do the Study A: On Earth, this takes years to study if we can accelerate this in microgravity, we can test pharmaceuticals faster, not only to see muscle loss on Earth or in microgravity to help our Astronauts
Q: How is the experiment going to work A: Using a tissue chip system going on a scaffold the way our skeletal muscles are organized. Will look at different time points after a week will preserve the sample to study on Earth.

#Space | It took over a decade and 1,000 hours of photography to create this picture of the #MilkyWay…

By @pabsgill
@pabsgill Finnish astrophotographer, JP Metsavainio, took on the daunting task of creating a mosaic of the #MilkyWay back in 2009. It took him twelve years to get the whole picture which is around 100,000 pixels wide and has 234 individual mosaic panels stitched together.

@pabsgill "The reason for a long time period is naturally the size of the mosaic and the fact that the image is very deep. Another reason is that I have shot most of the mosaic frames as individual compositions and published them as independent artworks.," Metsavainio wrote on his blog.

It’s 100% the responsibility of Government to ensure the nation is prepared to tackle a #pandemic to the best of its ability. Exercise #Cygnus uncovered gaping holes in preparedness in 2016. By failing to address those findings, the Government have failed the nation #COVID19
I think it’s also important to understand what we mean by preparedness. Some stockpiling is warranted, but I don’t think anyone would expect a Government to have 50,000 spare ventilators in a warehouse. The point of preparedness is to have ready to go “off the shelf policies”
For example, this would mean policies are already in place between Government, private industry & other nations to suddenly ramp up production of essential equipment like ventilators & PPE. And economic policies are enacted to address mass unemployment & struggling businesses etc

¡Qué rápido ha pasado la semana! Parece mentira que estemos otra vez de lunes.

Hoy les invito a conocer mejor una de las constelaciones más interesantes del cielo de verano, la constelación de Cygnus (El Cisne)

¿Me acompañan?

#lunesastronomico #Cygnus #Constelaciones
Para los antiguos griegos, la leyenda del cisne está asociada al todopoderoso Zeus, quien se transformó en este animal para seducir a la reina Leda, esposa del rey Tíndaro de Esparta y dejarla encinta de uno de los gemelos celestiales, Póllux.

Leda y el Cisne, Chipre. sIII dC
Esa misma noche Leda se acostó con su esposo, quien la dejó embarazada del otro gemelo, Cástor. Algunas versiones dicen que la reina puso dos huevos de los que nacieron ambos gemelos, además de la hermosa Helena de Troya y Clitemnestra (futura esposa del rey Agamenón)
