2017 Hurricanes and Aerosols Simulation

By: NASA Goddard

Originally published on Nov 13, 2017

How can you see the atmosphere? By tracking what is carried on the wind. Tiny aerosol particles such as smoke, dust, and sea salt are transported across the globe, making visible weather patterns and other normally invisible physical processes.

This visualization uses data from NASA satellites, combined with mathematical models in a computer simulation allowing scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season.

During the same time, large fires in the Pacific Northwest released smoke into the atmosphere. Large weather patterns can transport these particles long distances: in early September, you can see a line of smoke from Oregon and Washington, down the Great Plains, through the South, and across the Atlantic to England.

Dust from the Sahara is also caught in storms sytems and moved from Africa to the Americas. Unlike the sea salt, however, the dust is removed from the center of the storm. The dust particles are absorbed by cloud droplets and then washed out as it rains.

Advances in computing speed allow scientists to include more details of these physical processes in their simulations of how the aerosols interact with the storm systems.

Fidget spinner spinning in space!

By: NASA Johnson

Originally published on Oct 13, 2017

A fidget spinner in space! How long does it spin? I’m not sure, but it’s a great way to experiment with Newton’s laws of motion!

Allowing the fidget spinner to float reduces the bearing friction by permitting the rate of the central ring and outer spinner to equalize, and the whole thing spins as a unit.

Visiting a breathtaking new world 🌏 Exoplanet Travel Video

 

By: Mathieu Stern

Published on Jun 14, 2017

I had the incredible chance to be the first filmmaker to ever visit MS-83, a newly discovered exoplanet 34 light years away from Earth, because it was not terraformed yet, you will need a respiratory mask to walk it’s lands.
Breathing MS-83 air could lead to color blindness and the loss of eyebrows hair.
I had the chance to follow a visitor for a hike between the desert and the blue forests of MS-83, it is a fascinating experience that i will never forget.

If you come to this planet, please do not take any living or mineral element with you on your trip back, this planet is classified and need to be protected.

***
It took almost 1 year and 4 trips around the world to create this new travel destination by mixing footage i shot in :
– Norway
– France
– Portugal
– Spain

The 2 first images in space comes from the Nasa public domaine video library, all the rest of the footage was shot by me.

please dont forget to like the video if you enjoyed it it can really help me do more stuff like that.

Originally published on Apr 18, 2017

Nikon’s history in Space began with the Nikon Photomic FTN, a modified Nikon F camera that was used aboard the Apollo 15 in 1971 and Nikon cameras have been aboard every manned space flight since. This film, edited by SmugMug Films, is a compiled time-lapse video using thousands of still images. The bright flashes are lightning strikes hitting the earth, watch and enjoy.

This is the first of many remarkable moments, both big and small, which we will be sharing in the lead up to Nikon 100th Anniversary! Stay tuned for more. 🙂

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

 

By: NASA

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.
