  • Fifty years after the world watched in awe as man first set foot on the moon, plucky interstellar travelers like Voyager 1 and the Hubble Space Telescope have provided dramatic evidence of just how many moons — not to mention galaxies — remain to be explored. A little closer to home here on Earth, however, space keeps getting more crowded. ⠀
⠀
As of March 31, a database maintained by the Union of Concerned Scientists identified 2,062 satellites orbiting the Earth. And while high-profile events such as the successful missions of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket continue to make headlines, a lot of lower profile, space-related commercial activity takes place every day. In fact, the number of satellites orbiting earth increased by nearly 100 in the first three months of 2019 alone.⠀
⠀
That's why, more than ever, the time is right for ASTM International’s commercial spaceflight committee. It recently published its first official standard. With humanity racing toward private space travel, many more are on the way.⠀

  • Galaxy Blazes With New Stars Born From Close Encounter

The irregular galaxy NGC 4485 shows all the signs of having been involved in a hit-and-run accident with a bypassing galaxy. Rather than destroying the galaxy, the chance encounter is spawning a new generation of stars, and presumably planets.

The right side of the galaxy is a blaze with star formation, shown in the plethora of young blue stars and star-incubating pinkish nebulas. The left side, however, looks intact. It contains hints of the galaxy’s previous spiral structure, which, at one time, was undergoing normal galactic evolution.

The larger culprit galaxy, NGC 4490, is off the bottom of the frame. The two galaxies sideswiped each other millions of years ago and are now 24,000 light-years apart. The gravitational tug-of-war between them created rippling patches of higher-density gas and dust within both galaxies. This activity triggered a flurry of star formation.

  • Posted @withrepost • @galaxiesways What it would look like as you approach #M87's supermassive Black Hole, 1/2 a light year wide, 2.5 billion times the mass of the Sun. 
This animation was created by @beachmobjellies
"Bending mind and spacetime with redshift and cod.

This animation shows how counter intuitive a black hole approach proberbly looks like due to the strong gravitational lensing. The redshift in light occurs where where light is travelling away from the observer and the blueshift where its coming towards. The accretian disk consists mainly of plasma and last pieces of very hot matter. This animation is so to say slow motion as it would actually move close to the speed of light. What a place!

  • In 3 days we will be attending @apollocontrol to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing at goonhilly. 
Over the next few days things are going to get pretty spacey around here celebrating one of humanities greatest achievements. We will also be posting loads of images from the event. So strap in like an astronaut cause it’s going to be a wild ride.

One of the last images NASA's Cassini Spacecraft took of Earth before crashing into Saturn, 1.2 billion km away. 🔭

Do you love Earth ❤

  • If the Moon was at the same distance as the ISS 🛰, just 420 kilometers (260 miles) away from us. 🚀🌏 🔭
⠀
Video by YetiDynamics/YouTube
Music by Exist Strategy - “Never Lise Your Smile”
⠀
“When the Moon eclipses the Sun, the camera exposure is adjusted so that you can see the Light of the earth reflecting back upon the moon. This was actually done by using a stand in Earth model to get reasonably accurate Earth "shine", it is Blue on the left side because the moon is flying over the Gulf of Mexico, and is white/tan on the right side because that part is over the United States . it is Dark in the middle because it is casting a huge shadow, and that shadow does not reflect light back on the Moon. I didn't quite expect it to look like this, it was a nice surprise
⠀
At this distance the Moon would rise in the west and set in the east, The Moon Orbits the Earth counterclockwise when viewed from the North pole looking *down*. the same direction that the earth rotates. Normally the Moon orbits much slower than the earth rotates so it rises in the east and sets in the west, however at 420km it orbits much faster, faster than the earth rotates underneath, therefore it will rise in the west and set in the east
⠀
The Moon would orbit very fast, somewhere between 130 mins and 90 mins, i'll work this figure out later, it's actually a simple problem, but i'm busy!
⠀
the Moon is tidally locked in this animation, even thou it doesn't *seem* like it. The reason for this is that we are Not viewing it from the center of the earth, but rather it's surface
⠀
the 420km altitude is measured surface to surface.  the center to center orbital distance is 8528km
⠀
The time in the video is sped up. the moon would transverse the sky slower.. like 10 mins (rough guess at this time)
⠀
The Moon is well within the Roche limit. at this distance the Moon would break up and form a new ring system. The Earth might also be destroyed.
⠀
The Moon is not in anyway Transparent, when it sets you're simply seeing the sky in front of it, and earth shine reflected onto it, remember it's in Space, it isn't in the air.
