NOBEL nominated, TESTED Laser Plasma Shield (adopted by NASA, but for …Mars!…) to REPEL all deadly space threats, as asteroids & solar superstorms that may blow up all nuclear, as we thankfully escaped in July 2012!
By combining the power of a "natural lens" in space with the capability of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers made a surprising discovery—the first example of a compact yet massive, fast-spinning, disk-shaped galaxy that stopped making stars only a few billion years after the big bang.
This image was acquired by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on April 18, 2017, at 14:04 local Mars time. It reminded the HiRISE team of the rugged and open terrain of a stark shore-line, perhaps of the British Isles.
67 Progress (67P) Docking: 67P rendezvous and docking to ISS Service Module (SM) aft port was completed successfully today at 6:37 am CDT. Following hatch opening the crew began transferring early unstow items. Japanese Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (J-SSOD): The crew brought the JEM Airlock Slide Table (ST) into the ISS and mounted the J-SSOD #7 to it. […]
Neutron Star Interior Composition ExploreR (NICER) Status: Yesterday’s planned NICER deployment was not completed due to a problem with releasing all four of the NICER launch locks. Following several attempts, the NICER team successfully released three of the four launch locks. The team continues attempts to release the fourth lock. NanoRacks Module-52: T […]
67 Progress Launch: 67P launched successfully from Baikonur, Kazakhstan today at 4:20am CDT followed by a nominal ascent and orbit insertion. All systems are performing nominally. Docking is scheduled for Friday, June 16 at 6:42am CDT. Rodent Research-5 (RR-5) Systemic Therapy of NELL-1 for Osteoporosis: The crew restocked two of the four Animal Habitats […]
Electrostatic Levitation Furnace (ELF): The crew replaced the Sample Cartridge and the stuck Sample Holder in the ELF with a new type of Sample Holder and a Sample Cartridge. The ELF is an experimental facility designed to levitate, melt and solidify materials by containerless processing techniques using the Electrostatic Levitation method. With this facili […]
