World’s First Live 360 Rocket Launch: Orbital ATK CRS-7



Streamed live

NASA, in coordination with United Launch Alliance (ULA) and Orbital ATK, will broadcast the world’s first live 360-degree stream of a rocket launch. This stream will begin at approximately 11:00a.m. EDT on April 18th, and will last until the rocket is out of sight. This stream enables you to look around in 360 degrees -as if you were actually standing on the launch pad.

The Orbital ATK CRS-7 resupply mission to the International Space Station is scheduled to launch during a 30 minute window opening at 11:11a.m. EDT. Orbital ATK’s Cygnus spacecraft will launch on a ULA Atlas V rocket carrying more than 7,600 pounds of science research, crew supplies and hardware to the orbiting laboratory.

The Verge: SpaceX’s plan to colonize Mars, explained


By: The Verge

Published on Sep 28, 2016

Elon Musk gave the biggest talk of his life in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he detailed his plans to set up a self-sustaining colony of 1 million people on Mars. He knows the rockets and spaceships he wants to build, but many questions still need to be answered if he wants to pull off such an ambitious feat. The Verge’s Loren Grush breaks down some of the challenges with input from Bill Nye (CEO of The Planetary Society) and Will Pomerantz (VP Special Projects, Virgin Galactic).

Juno spacecraft Jupiter arrival animation

NASA’s Juno spacecraft is scheduled to arrive at the giant planet Jupiter in July 2016 following a five-year trek. As the spacecraft nears the planet it executes a series of maneuvers to prepare for Jupiter orbit insertion. First, the spacecraft opens its main engine cover. Then Juno uses thrusters to re-orient itself so that its main engine points in the direction the spacecraft is moving. Juno’s thrusters then fire to increase the spacecraft’s rate of spin from 2 rotations per minute to 5 rotations per minute; the faster rate of rotation makes Juno more stable during the engine burn to come.

Juno fires its main engine for about 30 minutes to slow down and allow Jupiter’s gravity to capture the speeding spacecraft into orbit. Following the engine burn, Juno decreases its rate of spin and points its giant solar arrays back toward the sun and Earth (which at Jupiter’s location appear close together in the sky). At this point the spacecraft will be successfully in orbit around the giant world.

MESSENGER at Mercury


By: NASASolarSystem

Originally Published on Apr 27, 2015

The robotic spacecraft MESSENGER has run out of fuel. With no way to make major adjustments to its orbit around the planet Mercury, the probe will smash into the surface at more than 8,750 miles per hour (3.91 kilometers per second). The impact will add a new crater to the planet’s scarred face that engineers estimate will be as wide as 52 feet (16 meters).

Journey to Space Official Trailer 1 (2015) – Documentary HD

Journey to Space is a celebration of space exploration, a tribute to international cooperation in space research and a vision toward our near-term future beyond Earth’s orbit – a manned mission to Mars within a generation. The film beautifully and inspiringly chronicles the space shuttle program, MIR, the ISS and the Hubble telescope – paying tribute to these accolades in the context of our future in space. Dazzling computer imagery depicts the spacecraft, habitats, landers, and vehicles necessary to achieve interplanetary travel, touchdown and colonization. Journey to Space taps into our unquenchable drive to explore and discover what lies beyond, a vision certain to inspire today’s young explorers and dreamers. This is the time for our species, in the words of Carl Sagan, to “set sail across the cosmic ocean.” Next stop… Mars!
