La NASA met en ligne sa propre galerie de photos

La NASA met en ligne sa propre galerie de photos | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

L’agence spatiale vient de lancer NASA Images, un site dédié à héberger toutes les photos spatiales prises ces dernières années.

Le site annonce ainsi regrouper « plus de 100 000 photographies historiques documentant le programme spatial américain ».

Parmi elles, des photos des différentes missions Apollo sur la Lune, mais aussi des images plus vastes de l’univers via le télescope Hubble et les différentes sondes parcourant notre système solaire.

 

Terheck's insight:

Over 70 NASA imagery collections in a free, searchable resource

Earth live from space with the ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment

"The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. Video from these cameras is transmitted back to earth and also streamed live on this channel. While the experiment is operational, views will typically sequence though the different cameras."

 

For a display of the real time ISS location plus the HDEV imagery, visit here: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/HDEV/

 

To learn more about the HDEV experiment, visit here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/experiments/917.html

Terheck's insight:

Le 30 avril dernier, la Nasa a lancé une nouvelle expérience. Baptisée High Definition Earth Viewing (vue de la Terre en HD), elle permet aux internautes de regarder la Terre en haute-définition et en direct grâce à quatre webcams installées sur la Station spatiale internationale.

Mission to Land on a Comet - NASA Science

Mission to Land on a Comet - NASA Science | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it
Europe’s Rosetta spacecraft is en route to intercept a comet– and to make history. In 2014, Rosetta will enter orbit around 67P/Churyumov Gerasimenko and land a probe on it for a front row seat as the comet heads toward the sun.

The revolutionary ion engine that took spacecraft to Ceres

The revolutionary ion engine that took spacecraft to Ceres | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

"The NASA spacecraft Dawn has spent more than seven years travelling across the Solar System to intercept the asteroid Vesta and the dwarf planet Ceres. Now in orbit around Ceres, the probe has returned the first images and data from these distant objects. But inside Dawn itself is another first – the spacecraft is the first exploratory space mission to use an electrically-powered ion engine rather than conventional rockets.

 

The ion engine will propel the next generation of spacecraft. Electric power is used to create charged particles of the fuel, usually the gas xenon, and accelerate them to extremely high velocities..."
