NEW PIECE: A Visual Introduction to the Dwarf Planets of our Solar System🔭🌕🌑🪐 #dwarfplanets #space #dwarf #outerspace #planet #pluto #infographic #dataviz #orbit #scicomm #sciviz #nasa #spaceart #visual
This one is a fun topic for me - I've always been fascinated with society's disdain for Pluto's downgrade, but the complete lack of interest for the other members of Pluto's family!!
You'll notice there's more than 5 of the IAU's recognized dwarf planets. This is because I referenced additional planets that are agreed upon by @plutokiller, @GonzaloTancredi, and Will Grundy @LowellObs. Depending who you ask, there's more!

-- A THREAD: On the 20th Anniversary of Space Tourism, here are "Things I didn't expect would happen, but did. And what I learned from it all" ... A thread
1/ When co-founding @SpaceAdventures (SA) in 1998, we expected the start of the first space tours in 2001. Amazingly, we were right on schedule.

(Naturally fate demanded space tourism start in the namesake year of Clarke's 2001 A Space Odyssey.)
2/ SA's first client would become history's first space tourist 20 yrs ago on this day. Rocket fire replaced sci fi dreams. Cheers the world over signaled the change in paradigm. It all became real at 07:37:20 UTC on April 28, 2001.

I put this #orbit visualisation tool together in #Excel to help with teaching & I'm really pleased with how it turned out. 3D rendering & real-time/instant updates via a control panel without any complicated code. It should run on any PC or laptop. A few minor bugs to fix. ImageImage
P.S. I'm happy to share (*also for beta testing*) if anyone is interested. Please just send me a DM with your email address. It's a 2 MB macro-enabled Excel spreadsheet (tagging the #spacedebris tweeps too)
P.P.S. My DMs are not open (sorry!) so we will need to follow each other if you would like to send me your contact email. Or you can find mine online...

Last week, our last host shared some awesome #Skylab history. Here’s some amazing shots of #Earth, as seen by the final Skylab crew.

Here’s a thread with some incredible pics, taken May to June 1973 by the crew of Skylab III. Or 4 but that’s a topic for @NASA_Skylab to answer.
1st up, New England “stretching from northern Long Island across the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island & Massachusetts. The total area covered by this photo is more than 25,000 square miles & includes all of Rhode Island, most of Massachusetts & Connecticut, part of New York.” Image
Next, SD- The Badlands formed over millions of years. Beautiful “steep gullies, irregular winding ridges & isolated buttes. The barren wasteland of badlands light toned rock surfaces contrast sharply w/ the adjacent vegetated landscape of native grasslands & cultivated fields.” Image
