  • Solar System’s First Interstellar Visitor Dazzles Scientists
    Astronomers recently scrambled to observe an intriguing asteroid that zipped through the solar system on a steep trajectory from interstellar space—the first confirmed object from another star.

        • Oh damn, I'll take the bait, lol !

          Yeah, and the shape is weird... Hard to believe something so rectiligne is natural... For me, the alleged appareance seems manufactured... Space derelict ? Invasion ? Phallic-shaped piece of rock ?

          I'm sure the "BlackOpsTehConspiracyNSAJewsGayMuslimFreeMasonsKK KReptilians" are already dispatching they secret space ships to get spacetech, lol

          • It is a cigar type spaceship hiding under fake stone to appear as an asteroid.

            • so what do you guys think about the idea to create oxygen on mars? discussions about possibilities of a device called moxie.. which will be launched together with the mars rover 2020 to start the process, took my interest.


              in addition to that, links regarding the topic of "terraforming mars" (solid magnetic poles, creating an earth like atmosphere):

              [-......Mars may once again become a more Earth-like habitable environment]



              b) Lunar and Planetary Science XLVIII

              [-......Terraforming,..not feasible]

              • Orions propulsion module ESM getting ready at Airbus Bremen. It shall fly a unmanned around the far side of the moon the farthest a manned object has been so far in space. 15% farther than Apollo and 3 x times longer in deep space. (Not very impressive superficially but hey we are just at the beginning)

                It will go to EML-2 (Lagrangian point)

                Starting point for deep space exploration



                First successful test of the Propulsion System

                • This is mighty impressive and a testament to the sheer brilliance of American 1970's space engineering:

                  Is there anybody out there? Voyager 1 fires up thrusters dormant since 1980
                  https://www.rt.com/usa/411722-voyage...after-decades/

                  The probe was launched by NASA way back in 1977 and is now in the outer reaches of the solar system, already way past Pluto, still speeding towards true interstellar space. Any command sent by ground control takes a good 19½ hours to reach it (and obviously, it takes another 19½ hours before they see if Voyager even responded), ergo it's 19½ light-hours away from Earth and as such, it's the man-made object that has made it the farthest from the home planet of mankind.

                  But the probe remains alive thanks to its plutonium RTGs, and even though its orientational thrusters haven't been used for 37 years they worked perfectly when finally tested again just now. Amazing.

                  • In a first, Galileo’s gravity experiment is re-created in space

                    Galileo’s most famous experiment has taken a trip to outer space. The result? Einstein was right yet again. The experiment confirms a tenet of Einstein’s theory of gravity with greater precision than ever before.
