Another #throwback to the #makerfaire in #nyc - CEO Alex Kaay with Massimo Banzi of @arduino
Check out our new campaign on @crowdsupply https://www.crowdsupply.com/openh/rubicon - custom made Rubicon #enclosure kits for your #IoT project. While the Rubicon is for the RaspberryPI, our Quasar and Pulsar 4G connectivity kits will also work with the Beaglebone. We are so excited about the hardware we're releasing. While the maker market isn't huge, it's just an honor to be a part of this community and enable makers to create new creative and connected iot hardware with our kits. #IoT #makers #RaspberryPi #beagleboard #arduino #linux #rubicon #makers #quasar #innovation #IoTdevelopers#hardware #geeks #picoftheday#data#bigdata #tech #it #openH #4G #connecteddevices #amazing #picoftheday #openhardware #startuplife #startups #geeks #devs #igers
About two weeks ago I wrapped on a little short with @mcbro_ftw and @daniel.j.egbert The budget was low but hopes were high and it was a great experience working with all members of the team.
Special thank you to my young team that came out and learned on the fly how demanding I can be.

On the outer edge of this burning plasma around the sun, Solar Probe Plus won't need to contend with temperatures quite that hellish, but it will be flying through about 1,650 K, or roughly 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. The craft, slated for launch in July 2018, will be the fastest-moving manmade object in history as it zips around the sun 24 times at speeds approaching 200 km/sec, which is an insane 447,387 mph. Solar Probe Plus will fly within 3.67 million miles of the surface of the sun, which is about 8.5 solar radii—23 million miles closer to the sun than any craft before it.

The probe, which will be the first to “touch the Sun” is being readied for an anticipated 31 July 2018 launch aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL which will start a 7 year mission to study the Sun.

The Solar Probe Plus spacecraft will fly through the outer corona of our host star, which is essentially the sun's atmosphere. This doesn't mean the craft will be safe from the sun's intense heat, though. The corona, an aura of plasma that surrounds the sun, is actually hotter than the star's surface, which is called the photosphere because it is the part that we see emitting light. The photosphere has a temperature of between 4,500 and 6,000 degrees Kelvin, while the corona's temperatures are more like 1,000,000 or 2,000,000 K and can blaze as hot as 20,000,000 K in the right conditions.

The Solar Probe Plus has been renamed the Parker Solar Probe in honor of Eugene Parker, the astrophysicist who developed the modern study of heliophysics and described the behavior of particles in supersonic solar wind.

World's largest space telescope is complete.. Expected to launch in 2018.. The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) will be a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror. The telescope will be launched on an Ariane 5 rocket from French Guiana in October of 2018. JWST will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System.
