Moving on from #Asteroids #Exoplanets #SolarEclipse #StarSpectrum we now focus on #Satellites

Sputnik 1 was the first satellite to be launched (1957). Over 1200 active satellites are currently orbiting Earth.

Check out the LIVE Satellite Map maps.esri.com/rc/sat/index.h…
Satellites come in different sizes: from the size of a lunch box to that of a small school bus.

And they are used for different purposes: Climate Monitoring, Agriculture, Telecommunications, Research.... How heavy is a satellite
Can #CitizenScientists access data from these satellites?

Yes! NASA makes available near LIVE data from many of its satellites in an interactive interface.

Allows browsing full-resolution, global satellite imagery!

1) Why are millions of people, including teenagers, talking about the Flat Earth theory, and how does this relate to the new Space Force? -

2) Almost everything we know about the Earth, space, the Moon, and every photo and video of our planet comes from NASA.
3) NASA is associated with the moon landing hoax. We've noticed such things as a breeze on the moon, no stars in the sky, astronauts being yanked up off the ground by wires, and the fact that all of the photos of Earth are composite images that NASA admits to piecing together.
4) NASA stated that the images are indeed CGI, and that “they have to be”.

1. A thing ppl may not realize about the canceled lunar mission: NASA probably cancelled it to save funds for the SLS rocket. But, SLS will end up being marginalized with only @elonmusk BFR doing Mars missions unless we can make Mars missions affordable w/in NASA's risk profile.
2. So NASA needs to change the game to make Mars more affordable, or SLS will ultimately be marginalized & never do Mars surface missions. There is only ONE serious idea to make Mars affordable for NASA, and that is to develop a vibrant cislunar economy involving space resources.
3. How can a vibrant cislunar economy make Mars more affordable for NASA? Multiple ways. Provide propellant made in-space to avoid launch costs. Cheaper in-space assembly of spacecraft. More space activity so economies of scale reduce overall cost of doing business in space. Etc.

All right, I have seen too much of this "OMG Scott Kelly and Mark Kelly are no longer genetically identical after space!" And I can't take it anymore. time.com/5201064/scott-… A thread. (1/14)
First and most importantly: here are some of the NASA pieces on this. nasa.gov/feature/nasa-t… and here: nasa.gov/feature/nasa-t… Most important thing: We are talking (mostly) about gene EXPRESSION. Not the genes themselves. (2/14)
DNA gets transcribed to RNA, which is translated to protein (Central Dogma, remember this?). What changed was the transcription and translation of some of S. Kelly's genes. NOT THE GENES. (3/14)

Pour info vous avez peut-être vu passer des informations sur le budget de la #NASA aujourd'hui. Alors un petit #Thread:
1: C'est la proposition de la Maison Blanche pour l'année Fiscale 2019, qui démarre en novembre 2018. Elle ne fait pas autorité.
2: Cette proposition "FY2019" est ensuite envoyée au Congrès US dont chacune des deux chambres peut modifier le texte avant de le voter, qui fait ensuite des allers-retours si la Maison Blanche pose son véto.
Inutile de vous dire qu'à la fin, c'est pas mal modifié.
3: Ce qui est rigolo c'est qu'il y a une date fixe pour la proposition "FY2019" aujourd'hui, mais que le budget de l'année fiscale 2018 n'a toujours pas réussi à faire consensus. Ca fait 4 mois que la NASA vit sur un budget de transition appelé un CR (Continuing Resolution)...

1. #QAnon's drops can require some time for personal analysis and input from the many good people digging. Here's my summary of key intel from the last week+ (1/19 - 1/27) of #Q drops. For Twitter efficiency, I will provide the direct link to the related posts as I review.
2. Chuckie Schumer was put on notice by #POTUS that his role in #Treason is known. Did you notice how # Schumer sulked away to the corner after his failed shutdown effort? 8ch.net//qresearch/res…
3. Read this whole #Q post as it has so much meaning. "Will Sessions drop the Hammer?" HAMMER refers to the very secretive NSA spying program. The same tools used to spy on #Trump will be their undoing. 8ch.net//greatawakenin…

1) Today's story is called The Brink.

They never thought she'd lose, now we understand the #NWO plan to destroy America, see 1991 Bush I vid. Obama took over the process from Bush II and embarked on an 8 year wrecking ball. #QAnon #GreatAwakening @POTUS
2) For years rogue operatives have been getting installed. Shadow government/#DeepState. All centers of #Government. Controlled by the wealthiest on the planet, most rogue was the CIA. Goal was complete control to dismantle. Check Out Barry's Book: Post American World #QAnon
3) The systematic leaking of classified intel was everywhere, so was exposure of #military assets. Instead if de-funding military (bad optics), you starve thru corruption. Notice #Mattis has a massive audit of DOD? Think why.

NASA's fab @OSIRISREx swings by tomorrow to steal some of Earth's momentum #EarthGravityAssist, so lets chat about sampling the Solar System
Earth’s inventory of planetary materials consists of dust & meteorites that land on Earth, & specimens from sample return missions (SRMs).
The majority of the 50,000+ classified meteorites originate from the asteroid belt between Mars & Jupiter; a few from Vesta, the Moon & Mars
