If this happens this year it's flat out amazing!

https://www.sciencealert.com/accordi...arth-this-year

SpaceX successfully launched Bangladesh's first-ever geostationary communications satellite, called Bangabandhu-1, into space on Friday.

But the real star of the mission was a newly designed rocket called Falcon 9 Block 5. Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, said the launcher is built to be the most powerful, reusable, and affordable version of his company's workhorse orbital rocket.

What's more, Musk said Falcon 9 Block 5 will usher in a new era of spaceflight records.

"I believe Falcon 9 was the most-launched rocket worldwide in 2017," he said on a call with reporters Thursday afternoon. "If things go well - big caveat - SpaceX will launch more rockets than any other country in 2018."

Is the moon Europa where we first find extraterrestrial life?

https://arstechnica.com/science/2018...ume-on-europa/

Since Galileo's end, the Hubble Space Telescope has periodically observed the Jovian system. Sometimes, when the telescope has looked, it has observed water vapor emissions coming from the surface of Europa. This indicates the existence of periodic jets of water emanating from the moon's interior.

The prospect of the water gushing from the moon's interior has tantalized scientists, as that warm, vast interior ocean is thought to be one of the best places in the Solar System beyond Earth—if not the best—to look for extant life. Since the ice sheet covering Europa is thought to be at least several kilometers thick, being able to sample the ocean from space or the moon's surface would greatly aid this search.


And maybe we'll get off our butts and launch a mission to Europa designed to sample that ocean.

One ardent supporter of a mission to Europa, Texas Congressman John Culberson, broke the embargo on this news last week during a Congressional hearing on NASA's budget. “It’s worth noting that the scientific journal Nature Astronomy just reported that the Galileo mission, back in 1997, flew through a water plume on Europa 1,000 kilometers thick," Culberson said during an appropriations subcommittee markup in the House. "So the ocean of Europa is venting into outer space.”

As if we don't have enough to worry about:

https://phys.org/news/2018-05-supern...tinctions.html

Two nearby supernovae that exploded about 2.5 and eight million years ago could have resulted in a staggered depletion of Earth's ozone layer, leading to a variety of repercussions for life on Earth.

In particular, two-and-a-half million years ago the Earth was changing dramatically. The Pliocene, which was a hot and balmy epoch, was ending and the Pleistocene, an era of repeated glaciation known as the Ice Age, was beginning. Natural variations in Earth's orbit and wobble likely accounted for the change in climate, but the simultaneous event of a supernova could provide insight on the diversification of life during this epoch.


The article offers some comfort as the earths atmosphere has protective aspects to defend against the radiation released from near by Super Novas but stuff like this reinforces there are dangers out there.

Sure, not willing to consider that millions of Chinese and Indian chimneys would cause a "global warming" but perfectly willing to blame it on an innocent by-standing super-nova.

EIB, I think a fascinating area of research is going to be how intra & inter solar system factors impact earths climate. Everything from cyclic "wobbles" in the earth's orbit around the sun to how "empty" (particle density) the local interstellar space is that the solar system is moving through. Keep in mind the earth does more than rotate through space around the sun, the entire solar system is racing outward through space from the galactic core.

Net, our interstellar environment changes every day!

Add to this the cyclic dynamics of the suns energy output and I wouldn't be surprised if the macro global climate isn't mostly set by extraterrestrial events. So yes, nearby super Nova would be expected to exert a greater GLOBAL effect on climate then millions of Indians burning dung.

We'll this is a relief!

https://articles.syracuse.com/politi...mpression=true

After completing what they say is the first examination of Adolf Hitler's remains since World War II, a team of researchers has announced that the Nazi leader most definitely died in Berlin and, therefore, cannot possibly still be alive on the moon.

I had heard rumors Hitler was hiding out in Argentina or Brazil but this is the first time I've heard that he may have been on the MOON!

Now this is good news, TESS is up and running perfectly:

https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-t...r-first-image/


NASA’s new planet-hunting mission, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), was launched on April 18. After getting accustomed to its new surroundings and doing a quick buzz past the moon, it’s already produced a stunning image that was just released by NASA. As part of the calibration sequence for one of its four on-board cameras, TESS captured a swatch of the sky that includes more than 200,000 stars.

The picture is of one crowded part of our Galaxy!

I only counted 199,000 stars. Maybe I miscounted.

It's always good news when NASA has success with it's missions. Millions and sometimes billions of dollars are at stake. If they screw up, NASA rarely gets a do-over. I'm looking forward to what new knowledge TESS might find.

They are starting to better define the criteria by which a planet might support Earth like life:

https://phys.org/news/2018-05-orbita...ll-states.html

Aspects of an otherwise Earthlike planet's tilt and orbital dynamics can severely affect its potential habitability—even triggering abrupt "snowball states" where oceans freeze and surface life is impossible, according to new research from astronomers at the University of Washington.

The research indicates that locating a planet in its host star's "habitable zone"—that swath of space just right to allow liquid water on an orbiting rocky planet's surface—isn't always enough evidence to judge potential habitability.

If you want to know if extraterrestrial life exists study how life started on earth:

https://www.wired.com/story/35-billi...d&kwp_0=682818

Look closer. From a seam in one of these hills, a jumble of ancient, orange-Creamsicle rock spills forth: a deposit called the Apex Chert. Within this rock, viewable only through a microscope, there are tiny tubes. Some look like petroglyphs depicting a tornado; others resemble flattened worms. They are among the most controversial rock samples ever collected on this planet, and they might represent some of the oldest forms of life ever found.

Last month, researchers lobbed another salvo in the decades-long debate about the nature of these forms. They are indeed fossil life, and they date to 3.465 billion years ago, according to John Valley, a geochemist at the University of Wisconsin. If Valley and his team are right, the fossils imply that life diversified remarkably early in the planet’s tumultuous youth.


When all is said and done I suspect we'll find that life is ubiquitous throughout the Galaxy.

In memory of Alan Bean who walked the moon as part of the Apollo 12 mission:

Keep in mind that this happened way back in 1969. It's long overdue that we establish a colony on the moon.

At least the astronauts have a space toilet on the ISS (two actually) … and they had a toilet on the Space Shuttles … they even have a small toilet on the Russian Soyuz spacecrafts.

But, they didn't have a toilet on any of the Apollo moon missions … none in the Command/Service Module or in the Lunar Module. The Apollo missions lasted anywhere from 6-13 days, and they had to go #2 in a low-tech bag...without gravity assisting their business! Talk about Klingons. Nasty.

It's not always glamorous being an astronaut.

It's a big Galaxy full of strange planets:

https://phys.org/news/2018-06-multip...exoplanet.html

The team, from the University of Cambridge and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) in Spain, used the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC) to observe WASP-127b, a giant gaseous planet with partly clear skies and strong signatures of metals in its atmosphere. The results have been accepted for publication in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

WASP-127b has a radius 1.4 times larger than Jupiter but has only 20% of its mass. Such a planet has no analogue in our solar system and is rare even within the thousands of exoplanets discovered to date. It takes just over four days to orbit its parent star and its surface temperature is around 1400 K (1127° C).

The observations of WASP-127b reveal the presence of a large concentration of alkali metals in its atmosphere, allowing simultaneous detections of sodium, potassium and lithium for the first time in an exoplanet. The sodium and potassium absorptions are very broad, which is characteristic of relatively clear atmospheres. According to modelling work done by the researchers, the skies of WASP-127b are approximately 50% clear.

LOL - you can file it under "things we didn't used to talk about about during polite conversation but now we do".

Back in my youth I spent five years working part-time for the U.S. Government Printing Office agency - actually, the GPO bookstore in Columbus. Among our inventory, we used to sell a a lot of nice educational books from NASA about various aspects of the space program: the Right Stuff Era, Mercury/Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, etc.

They didn't discuss the logistics of elimination in the Apollo books, but the Skylab stuff was fascinating. They showed a picture of the toilet, and talked about how you had to sit on it, fasten a seat belt, and let the vacuum get a good seal around the critical part of your anatomy.

Just think - on the old two-man Gemini missions you had to get the job done while sitting elbow-to-elbow with your fellow crewman. And if you were the middle man on a 3-person Apollo mission, you didn't even have a wall you could turn to and at least pretend you have some privacy.

Folks discussing the mundane elements of space travel, including going to the bathroom, is a good indicator of the recent progress we've made. Just a decade ago I never would have predicted the explosion of private sector space launches that we've seen over the last few years. And it's just not the number of launches but the surprising quality (reusable rockets, etc.) of the rockets. We are truly at the dawn of a new era of space exploration.

It's a good thing this asteroid was only 6 feet in diameter and not 600 feet:

http://www.newsweek.com/asteroid-nea...e-earth-956062

If you believe in using the precautionary principal as justification for aggressive action to stop human induced climate change (I'm a big skeptic here BTW) then that same principal is far more applicable to the much more deadly scenario of an asteroid smashing into the earth.

Build a protective shield involving much improved detection capabilities with an orbital based system to deflect asteroids from hitting the earth. In addition to protecting the human race the country that takes the lead here will realize great technological & economic growth as well.

Missed seeing the latest SpaceX launch live online early Monday morning. My buddy wants me to go with him to FL to watch the launch that's scheduled for later this month.

SpaceX plans at least one more launch this month, with a mission sending cargo to the International Space Station targeted for late June. Another commercial satellite launch from the Cape may also be possible.
But, I’d rather see the BFR launch, maybe by next March:

https://www.investors.com/news/space...ist-moon-shot/

Quote:
But Musk said just before that flight that development of the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) was moving along faster than anticipated, meaning it may not be necessary to qualify both the Falcon Heavy and BFR for crewed flights and instead just qualify the BFR.

In March, Musk said the BFR may debut in March 2019.
Also, can’t help but crack up over the BFR’s alternative acronym.

https://www.space.com/38393-spacex-b...cket-name.html

This past Feb., my kid, who’s a science teacher, got some students to stay after school to watch the Falcon Heavy launch and, later, played this video montage for any students who missed it. Now, they all want to be Elon Musk and are obsessed with SpaceX!

Seeing one of these launches live in Florida is definitely on my to do list. The key is to know the full launch window and arrange to be there long enough to see a launch at the new time if it's scrubbed for weather. And of course watching a launch in January/February/March in Florida would be better then June/July/August!

Slowly but surly we're seeing evidence that life once existed on Mars:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ter/681597002/

"The detection of organic molecules and methane on Mars has far-ranging implications in light of potential past life on Mars," said Inge Loes ten Kate, a Utrecht University scientist in an accompanying article in Science. "Curiosity has shown that Gale Crater was habitable around 3.5 billion years ago, with conditions comparable to those on the early Earth, where life evolved around that time.

"The question of whether life might have originated or existed on Mars is a lot more opportune now that we know that organic molecules were present on its surface at that time," Kate said.

NASA's Thomas Zurbuchen said that "with these new findings, Mars is telling us to stay the course and keep searching for evidence of life. I’m confident that our ongoing and planned missions will unlock even more breathtaking discoveries on the Red Planet.”



I just hope they find that first fossil in my lifetime!

Well this study would suggest that ancient life on Mars would have had to be tough:

https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0608003155.htm

Their methods:

"There are people trying to model Mars' ancient climate using the same kind of models we use here on Earth, and they're having a really hard time doing it. It's difficult to create a warm ancient Mars because the sun was a lot fainter then. The whole solar system was cooler," said Briony Horgan, an assistant professor of earth, atmospheric and planetary sciences at Purdue University. "While a lot of people are using climate models, we're coming at this from a unique perspective -- what does the volcanic record of Mars tell us?"


And their conclusions:

"Even if Mars was a cold and icy wasteland, these volcanic eruptions interacting with ice sheets could have created a little happy place for microbes to exist," Horgan said. "This is the kind of place you'd want to go to understand how life would've survived on Mars during that time."

Could humans live on Mars? 'Absolutely,' a NASA expert says

Quote:
Humans will "absolutely" be on Mars in the future, NASA chief scientist Jim Green told USA TODAY. And the first person to go is likely living today, he said.

After the "building blocks of life" were discovered on the Red Planet, life on Mars and living on Mars seems to be less like a scene from the movie The Martian and more like a reality.

"Now, we see Mars is an even better location for having past life," Green said. "It’s just getting better and better."

Mars is more Earth-like than any other planet in the solar system, making it an attractive second option for the human race. There's also a natural beauty on the planet: a grand canyon that measures nearly the entire width of the U.S. and a volcano the size of Arizona.

So maybe Stargate was right all along:

https://phys.org/news/2018-06-specul...rophysics.html

The scientific collaborations LIGO and Virgo have detected gravitational waves from the fusion of two black holes, inaugurating a new era in the study of the cosmos. But what if those ripples of space-time were not produced by black holes, but by other exotic objects? A team of European physicists suggest an alternative—wormholes that can be traversed to appear in another universe.

Scientists have deduced the existence of black holes from a multitude of experiments, theoretical models and indirect observations such as the recent LIGO detections, which are believed to originate from the collision of two of these dark gravitational monsters.



So these wormholes could be pathways?

"Wormholes do not have an event horizon, but act as a space-time shortcut that can be traversed, a kind of very long throat that takes us to another universe," Bueno explains, "and the fact that they also have rotation changes the gravitational waves they produce."

Maybe they messed up the translation but why would they take us to another Universe instead of just another part of our Galaxy?

I agree that our ignorance here is profound but I think you underestimate how fast human ingenuity can evolve. I would guess that with the next series of orbital telescopes we'll be getting a much better understanding of these phenomena.

I predict that we'll have a pretty good handle on this stuff within 100 years and we may even be exploiting them by that time. Think for a moment about the magnitude of the technological advances made between 1900 & 2000. A similar rate of growth over the next 100 years will see us launching missions to the stars.

This is far more complex than you give it credit. You're talking about using the power of two merging black holes to traverse across space-time. Just a basic step toward doing that would be mastering faster than light travel just to get to a black hole to truly study gravitational waves to the necessary degree. Then you have to figure out 1. How to survive 2. Where the wormholes go 3. How to manipulate them. The amount of energy needed to do this is probably so far beyond anything we can imagine as ever being practical. I'm probably being generous with the 1000 years. It could be far more than that.
