#NASA ‘s #rover #Perseverance hat nun die ersten hochauflösenden Fotos von meinem Schatz und unserem Hund Chilli auf dem #Mars übermittelt. Den beiden scheint es nach erfolgreicher Landung gut zu gehen. Man erkennt interessante Steine jeder Größe und kann den Kraterrand am Horizont gut erkennen.

The insane engineering of the Perseverance rover. Instead of having instruments for determining the chemical composition of the Martian soil, the system stores sample tubes where they will be transferred to a spot where a future rover will retrieve them in 2026, transferring them to a return rocket that will bring them to orbit, where they will be transferred to another spacecraft that will return the Martian soil back to Earth.

Instead of having a mass spectrometer, a gas chromatograph, and a tunable laser spectrometer, which the Curiosity rover had, Perseverance has Raman spectroscopy, luminescent spectroscopy using UV light, an x-ray laser, and ground penetrating radar that can see 10 meters under the surface.

In addition, Perseverance has a system to make oxygen from the atmosphere's CO2. Not something the rover needs, but something future humans will need, so this rover will test the technology. It also has a helicopter. It can only fly for about 90 seconds, so it's really also a technology test, but if it works, it will lead to future Mars helicopters with science missions.

#NASA sendet #Marslandung im #Live-Stream


Von Ulrich Bantle - 18. Februar 2021

Die amerikanische Weltraumbehörde NASA überträgt die für den heutigen Donnerstag gegen 22 Uhr geplante Landung des Rovers Perseverance auf dem Mars in Live-Streams. Die Übertragung beginne dann bereits um 20.15 Uhr bei NASA-TV.

Perseverance war im Juli 2020 gestartet und soll am heutigen Donnerstag um 21.38 Uhr mit dem Landemanöver beginnen, indem er sich vom Antriebsmodul abkoppelt. Um 21.48 Uhr treffe Perseverance auf die Mars-Atmosphäre. Der Rover sei dann mit rund 19.500 Stundenkilometer unterwegs, teilt die NASA mit. Durch die Reibung in der Atmosphhäre heizen sich die Schutzschilde des Rovers in kurzer Zeit auf rund 1300 Grad auf. Die Bremswirkung setzt ein. Der Bremsfallschirm öffne sich um 21.52 Uhr, Perseverance sei dann immer noch mit Überschallgeschwindigkeit unterwegs. 20 Sekunden nachdem der Bremsfallschirm sich geöffnet hat, stößt der Rover die Hitzeschilde ab. Er sei dann in der Lage, mittels Radar die Entfernung zum Mars zu messen und durch den Einsatz seiner Terrain-Relative Navigation einen geeigneten Landepunkt zu wählen. Um 21.55 Uhr soll der Rover im Jezero Krater auf dem Mars landen. Er soll dann nur noch in Schrittgeschwindigkeit unterwegs sein. Die Landung kann laut der NASA gänzlich ohne Kommunikation zwischen Rover und Erde erfolgen.

Eine der ersten Aufgaben nach einer erfolgreichen Landung des Rovers sei die Übertragung von Fotos seines Standorts an die Erde. In den folgenden Tagen sind weitere Experimente geplant. Perseverance soll unter anderem nach Spuren von Leben suchen. Bei der NASA-Webseite zur Landung sind die möglichen Streams und Youtube-Kanäle verlinkt.

Mount Fuji’s Missing Snow


https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/147780/mount-fujis-missing-snow

Even as record snowfall has clobbered Japan’s western coast, much of the country’s eastern half has avoided major snow accumulation this winter. Notably, Mount Fuji’s iconic snow cap—which is normally visible throughout December—has been small or absent this year.

The mountain peak, the tallest in Japan, did get a dusting on September 28, 2020, its first snowfall of the year. But that melted off quickly, and Fuji’s snow cap remained elusive in the coming months. Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) observations from NASA’s Terra satellite indicate that snow cover on the mountain last month was among the lowest in the satellite's 20-year record for any December.

Ground-based weather stations made similar observations. “Stations around Mount Fuji recorded much less precipitation than usual in December,” said Toshio Iguchi, a remote sensing scientist based at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. “Through December 24, it was only 10 percent of an average year.” Weather data also indicate that temperatures around the mountain were warm during much of December.

In the images at the top of the page, the bare upper slopes of the mountain were visible to the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on the Landsat 8 satellite on January 1, 2021. For comparison, the other image, also acquired by OLI, shows Mount Fuji on December 29, 2013, on a day it was snowier. The mountain had a slightly above average amount of snow in December 2013, according to the Terra NDSI observations.

Toward the end of December 2020, the mountain finally received some snow. But even chillier January weather did not guarantee that the snow cap would last. After a few days, the snow cap was much reduced as temperatures creeped above freezing. And part of the snow cap was likely blown away by wind, according to Weather News.

While local weather conditions are key to whether Fuji’s snow cap is present on any given day, long-term climate data indicates that conditions on the peak are changing. One recent study found the mountain’s timberline had moved upslope by 30 meters (100 feet) over the past four decades, likely due to a 2 degree Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) increase in summer temperatures near the peak.

Meinung | Na da bin ich ja mal gespannt ob das mit dem Test SpaceX Starship SN8 klappt


Gerade läuft ja ein Livestream ( | SpaceX) zum Test des SpaceX Starship SN8 und ich bin gespannt ob das klappt. Momentan gibt es ja noch Verzögerungen, aber ok es ist ein Prototyp und da gibt es sicher noch einiges zu verbessern. Auch wenn ich der Meinung bin das wir uns zuerst einmal um die Probleme hier auf der Erde kümmern sollten, bin ich doch auch von der Raumfahrt fasziniert.

I somewhat hate to say it .. and it is the completely wrong time to do this...

But .... Congratulations United States of America for this successful Dragon Demo 2 Mission.

I love to see Bob and Doug back on earth... You people did a great job nonetheless.....

Now, please get all that other shit around in order soon ..... in a free and democratic manner, as you always promised us. ;)

Elon Musk: "The trampoline is working!" :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZkfrjwoEMI EN

[The Moscow Times]

Russian space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin once ridiculed the lack of a U.S. manned flight programme, saying it might as well "deliver its astronauts to the ISS by using a trampoline".

Six years later Elon Musk and NASA had the last laugh.

"The trampoline is working," quipped the 48-year-old U.S. entrepreneur at a post-flight news conference alongside NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine.

Both men laughed. "It's an inside joke," Musk added.

On Saturday, his SpaceX made history by becoming the first commercial company to send humans into orbit.

The U.S. feat and Musk's joke set Russian social media alight, with wits ridiculing Rogozin, and the Russian space chief's name began trending on Twitter.

"How do you like this, Dmitry Rogozin?" one critic prodded.

Russia still prides itself on sending the first human into orbit in 1961 and other achievements of the Soviet-era space programme.

Rogozin has remained conspicuously silent but his spokesman was forced to react.

"We don't really understand the hysteria sparked by the successful launch of a Crew Dragon spacecraft," spokesman Vladimir Ustimenko said on Twitter.

"What should have happened a long time ago happened," he added.

While cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, Roscosmos executive director for crewed space programmes, saluted the US achievement in a brief video address, not everyone was in such a gracious mood.

Alexey Pushkov, a member of the upper house of parliament, declared Saturday's flight was not a big deal.

"This is a flight to the International Space Station, not to Mars," he said on messaging app Telegram.

He pronounced it time to stop ferrying Americans to the orbiting lab.

"Russia needs spaces for its own young cosmonauts."

In 1975 while filming Barry Lyndon, to achieve shots with only candle lights Stanley Kubrick used the Zeiss f0.7 50mm lens developed specifically for NASA supposedly to shoot the dark side of the moon but that was actually used in spy satellites. How in the world would a simple movie director get access to government high tech spy lenses? That's just another piece in the puzzle
