  1. The fire is out of control and threatens Mt. Wilson Observatory. feel free to read about it @ http://www.squidoo.com/interstellaryeller#module28834002
  2. While Apollo 11 40th was just breaking and the Endeavour damage and the and wow the solar eclipse today A lucky astronomer in Australia caught a comet slamming into jupiter Monday. @ http://www.squidoo.com/interstellaryeller
  3. Endeavour is set to launch on its STS-127 mission at 5:40 a.m. EDT Wednesday, June 17.
  4. Launch Time: 9:20 p.m. EDT Description: Space shuttle Discovery launching on assembly flight 15A, will deliver the fourth starboard truss segment to the International Space Station. Click here http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/
  5. In your fackbook inbox there could be a link there that sends you to you tube.The message says " There is a video about you on the street." DO NOT CLICK ON THIS LINK!!! It will tell you to update your video codecs, when you do you got the worm. I just seen this on CNN.
  6. Enjoy a podcasts about astronomy at http://365daysofastronomy.org/ this is part of the 365 days of Astronomy.And IYA 2009.
  7. Columbia Disaster, New Report To Be Released. Today 2008, Dec 30. Nasa is expected to release the final detailed and graphic report on the Columbia's demise. At approximaty 12:15 Pm eastern On CNN.
  8. The original "The Day The Earth Stool Still". Will be aired this coming Thursday December 11th at 8PM Eastern on AMC for those interested.
  9. Its winter time here so I know all about clouds.
  10. Space has always been and will always be infinite, in every direction you look. The universe is finite but is expanding out in all directions like a bubble, and the expansion is accelerating with every passing second. Currently the universe is roughly 14 billion lightyears across and began somewhere in the center. Eventually every planet, nebula, star, even black holes will decay into the simplest form of matter. The proton. Expanding for eternity. In total absolute darkness.:-)
  11. On November 16th the Leonid meteor shower will peak. It should produce about 15 bright meteorites per hour. Enjoy the show, weather permitting.:-)
  12. Your right. It refers to a third mass such as a spaceship.Where at this point it would need very little fuel to sustain its position. A Lagrange point is a point in a system of two celestial bodies that orbit their common center of gravity in circular orbits, in which a space ship or other thing of negligible mass can remain for a long time without needing propulsion. Such a system of two bodies in circular orbits has five Lagrange points. And the other half looks good too. So my statment is only half right. The mind is the first thing to go. lagrange points → A Lagrange point is a point in a system of two celestial bodies that orbit their common center of gravity in circular orbits, in which a space ship or other thing of negligible mass can remain for a long time without needing propulsion.

  13. That is the last thing you want to do. What we need to do is land a satellite on its surface or use a satellite as a booster to nudge it a couple of mm a few inches or what ever it will take. If we can do this then we can delay a impact or totally avoid it altogether. All nuking it will do is turn this bullet into buckshot increasing the chance for a impact or the pieces accelerated by the explosion could knock other asteroids off there trajectory and increase the posibility for additional impacts. Its a one pocket billards table out there with the sun being the pocket and the asteroids being the cue ball.
  14. Asteroid Apophis 2004MN4 will come within 29000 km/ 18000 mi of striking the Earth on April 13th, 2029 this asteroid will come inside the orbits of most of are major satellites. This asteriod is the size of 3 football fields and if it hits a 400km gravitational keyhole as it sling shots aroung us then it will return in 2036 for impact. check out the videos on my site.Astronomy and Pictures, See the damage that can happen.
  15. I am interested in astronomy, but I do enjoy reading other science threads
