A four-stage NASA Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket carrying the Cusp-Region Experiment (C-REX) payload was successfully launch at 3:05 a.m. EST, Nov. 24, 2014, from the Andoya Rocket Range in Norway. Preliminary data shows that all 24 sub-payloads ejected as planned as the rocket flew to nearly 302 miles altitude. The science team is analyzing the data, including that gathered from ground cameras and cameras in the NASA B200 aircraft of the vapor cloud releases.

stickymisadventures To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. -E. E. Cummings

Captain's Log:

The great taco jettison failed. Apparently these aliens don't like tacos. We are going to land on the moon and attempt more civilized forms of communication rather than throwing tacos at our problems. It was a bad idea. Had they liked tacos, things would be cool, but they don't, and we just seem like jerks. I hope they didn't get any ghost pepper in their eyes. Anyway, we wouldn't think of endangering the good citizens of Earth. Should anything happen to us, and our little red rocket be parked upon the moon for the next millennium; let it be a symbol to all that our imaginations can take us anywhere.

stickymisadventures Captains Log: Stardate- T-Day. Taco Tuesday on Saturday.9er.

We are jettisoning our great taco stash in hopes that the aliens will be distracted by their own hunger. This trick worked sublimely years ago when we were being chased by a rabid band of cannibal headshrinkers in the Amazon. In that case, we were able to cut our sandwiches into finger sandwiches and leave them behind on the trail. The cannibals thought the sandwiches had fingers in them and we escaped with our heads. I just hope these aliens like their tacos hot. Cause I accidentally replicated these tacos loaded with Ghost Peppers.

samsiren Wow! Totally awesome! #iloveastronomy #astronomy #space @nasagoddard ・・・
This Hubble image is a snapshot of NGC 986 — a barred spiral galaxy discovered in 1828 by James Dunlop. This close-up view of the galaxy was captured by Hubble’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2). NGC 986 is found in the constellation of Fornax (The Furnace), located in the southern sky. NGC 986 is a bright, 11th-magnitude galaxy sitting around 56 million light-years away, and its golden center and barred swirling arms are clearly visible in this image.

Barred spiral galaxies are spiral galaxies with a central bar-shaped structure composed of stars. NGC 986 has the characteristic S-shaped structure of this type of galactic morphology. Young blue stars can be seen dotted amongst the galaxy’s arms and the core of the galaxy is also aglow with star formation.

To the top right of this image the stars appear a little fuzzy. This is because a gap in the Hubble data was filled in with data from ground-based telescopes. Although the view we see in this filled in patch is accurate, the resolution of the stars is no match for Hubble’s clear depiction of the spiral galaxy.

nasagoddard Northern Norway in December? It may not be your ideal spot to visit, but for NASA sounding rocket teams and university scientists, this is the ideal place to conduct experiments to increase the understanding of the interaction of the solar wind with Earth’s upper atmosphere.

The launch window opens November 19 at the Andoya Rocket Range for the Cusp Alfven and Plasma Electrodynamics Rocket (CAPER) and the Cusp-Region Experiment (C-REX) that will conduct studies of activities in the Earth’s cusp, magnetic field features in the magnetosphere associated with regions through which plasma from the sun can have direct access to the upper atmosphere.

In this image the CAPER payload is tested at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia prior to its shipment to the Andoya Rocket Range in Norway.

nickdanger84 #Asteroid #Bennu is a #timecapsule, containing the raw ingredients of the #solarsystem.
Bennu has settled in a near-Earth orbit.

A #NASA #spacecraft OSIRIS-REx is going to retrieve a sample to learn more about our Solar System’s history.
The Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security -- Regolith Explorer spacecraft (OSIRIS-REx) will travel to a near-Earth asteroid, called Bennu, and bring a sample back to #planetEarth for study. The mission will help scientists investigate how planets formed and how life began, as well as improve our understanding of #asteroids that could impact #Earth.

OSIRIS-REx is scheduled for launch in late 2016. As planned, the spacecraft will reach its asteroid target in 2018 and return a sample to Earth in 2023.

margaritamitrov ¿Ese frío viene para acá?

Repost from @nasagoddard --- As icy cold Canadian air settled over the eastern two-thirds of the U.S. bringing snow and bitter cold, NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured this infrared view of what looks like a frozen blanket over the region.

NOAA's GOES-East satellite provides visible and infrared images over the eastern U.S. and the Atlantic Ocean from its fixed orbit in space. In an infrared image taken on Nov. 18 at 12:30 UTC (7:30 a.m. EST), the cold air over the eastern and central U.S. appears to look like a blanket of white, but it's not all snow. Infrared data shows temperature, so although the eastern two-thirds of the U.S. appears to appear is if snow covers the ground, the blanket is in fact cold clouds. However, snow does lie under that blanket in the Upper Midwest, Ohio Valley, and Canada, where it will continue in those areas through Thursday, Nov. 20. "Dozens of lakes behind dams in the Southeast USA stand out as dark spots in a grey landscape," said Dennis Chesters of NASA/NOAA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "That is because we invert the display of infrared emission to make cold cloud tops appear white, frozen land grey, and warm water dark."
NOAA's National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center said that the deep low pressure system pushing that polar air over the Eastern U.S. is centered over southeastern Canada. On Tuesday, Nov. 18, freeze and frost warnings stretch from the upper Great Lakes to Florida. Some areas in the Upper Great Lakes are forecast to receive over two feet of snow. Well below average temperatures are forecast to reach the Gulf Coast, with most of the Mid-Atlantic States barely getting above freezing Tuesday and Wednesday. In the Midwest, periods of lake effect snow are forecast to continue south and east of the Great Lakes through Wednesday.

In this NOAA's GOES satellite infrared image taken on Nov. 18 at 7:30 a.m. EST, the cold air over the central and eastern U.S. appears to look like a blanket of white, but it's not all snow.
