Astronomers Without Borders234,341Astronauts Ron Garan and Anousheh Ansari join us for this special AWB Hangout, "Astronomy In the Development of STEM Education". Though often neglected in traditional educational systems, astronomy is an ideal way to present science and other technical fields in schools. With limited resources, especially in developing countries, astronomy offers an accessible "laboratory" in a subject that already fascinates children. AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania is just one example of how astronomy is used to promote science learning and curriculum-building in developing countries. This panel discussion will look at how astronomy has been used for development and the opportunities that remain.Guests:Ron Garan is a former astronaut, aquanaut, and test pilot who is also an entrepreneur. He has founded multiple companies and socially-focused organizations. His social media following of 3.6 million makes him one of Google Plus’ “Top 25 Followed”, and a Kred “Top 1% Influencer”.Anousheh Ansari was a co-sponsor of the $10 million Ansari X Prize for the first private launch of a reusable manned spacecraft, and the first female private space explorer. She is a serial entrepreneur and currently the chairman of Prodea Systems which she co-founded.Kevin Govender is the Director of the International Astronomical Union's Office of Astronomy for Development in South Africa, which was created to use astronomy to make the world a better place.Mponda Malozo is an environmentalist in Tanzania who also works with the educational system as a science consultant promotes astronomy through outreach activities. He is the Tanzania Coordinator of the Universe Awareness Foundation and a project manager for AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania.Astronomy For the Development of STEM Education2014-08-06 18:00:0089

NASA1,896,610Fifty years ago, President John Kennedy challenged us to go to the moon within the decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. As we remember Neil Armstrong this week – the man who, with a single step realized the hopes of a president, this nation and the world – we are recognizing the extraordinary achievements of the past five decades achieved by our nation's space agency and where the passion to explore will lead us in the future. President Barack Obama has set NASA on course toward an asteroid and to send humans to Mars within the next two decades. This goal is not without notable challenges, but using the knowledge, expertise and American ingenuity that has been the trademark of NASA scientists and engineers for the last half-century, NASA continues to make possible that which is seemingly impossible. At 3:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 12, NASA astronauts, scientists and engineers will hold a Google+ Hangout to talk about NASA's rich history of innovation and ingenuity and talk about NASA's future goals for scientific discovery and human spaceflight.During the event, we'll be joined by:- Dan Dumbacher, Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. He is the former Director of Engineering at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Previously, he was the deputy director of safety and mission assurance at Marshall.- Ron Garan, astronaut who lived and worked aboard the International Space Station. He has been in space for 178 days and has conducted four spacewalks.- John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. He is an astronaut and researcher in high energy astrophysics, cosmic ray physics, and in the emerging field of exoplanet studies. He was also the deputy director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, managing the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope and the forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope.- Michael Lopez-Alegria, the President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. He is a former Naval Aviator and test pilot (Capt., U.S. Navy, Ret.), NASA astronaut and International Space Station (ISS) commander.To join the event, visit http://plus.google.com/+NASA at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Ask your questions of the group in the comments below or using hashtag #askNASA :50 Years Later: NASA Discusses Using Innovation and Ingenuity to do Big Things2012-09-12 21:00:00651

For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people.

When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important.

At night, the Sinai Peninsula - one of the most distinctive and recognizable land areas on our home planet - doesn't look particularly different today from when the ancients crossed its dunes, deserts, valleys and mountains.

This is a catastrophe that's not getting enough attention.  Please share

An oil tanker sank on Tuesday in the Shela River, a sanctuary for dolphins, crocodiles and other aquatic animals in the  #Sundarbans that sweeps across the deltas of southwest Bangladesh and southeast India. This tangle of mudflats and waterways, flora and fauna is so diverse and precious that both countries protect it as national treasures.  +UNESCO designated the Sundarbans a World Heritage site because it is the largest contiguous mangrove forest on Earth. Oil spills and other human caused environmental disturbances are a threat. This photograph of the Sundarbans was taken from the #OrbitalPerspective of astronauts and cosmonauts living and working together in #space.___This is a catastrophe that's not getting enough attention.  Please share

If you're not following +Samantha Cristoforetti you should. Did I mention she's in space...

Logbook L+1

Wow, wow, wow! It’s 22:00 here on the International Space Station (we’re on GMT time), I’m approaching the end of my first day in space and I cannot even begin to describe the experience of the past 30 hours or so. Really, I don’t know.

Saying good bye to my family, suiting up for launch, getting to the launch pad, riding up the elevator, strapping in... and then the launch, this wild ride to orbit and then an abrupt engine cutoff and feeling my body wanting to float off my seat. And the first glimpses of Earth: my first sunrise, the stars. My first sight of the ISS as we approached (more to that later) and then floating through the hatch into the warm embraces of Sasha, Elena and Butch.

The first clumsy attempts at “flying” , having our first meal, Butch giving us the toilet brief, Terry calling me to watch a sunrise from the Cupola.. and so many more impressions. It will take my brain days to process it all and I promise I will share as much as I can!

For now, I will tell you of one moment, which was so fortunate and unexpected. You know, when you fly to the Space Station in the Soyuz, unless you are the Commander sitting in the center seat, you can only see your destination from far away in the black and white camera view (the same image that is transmitted to Mission Control and usually shown during media coverage of docking). As a left-or right seater, you only have a side view and there’s no way to see the Station until you’re really close and parts of it start coming in your field of you. Before the flight, previous Soyuz fliers had reminded me to start looking for the Space Station in the side window in the last part of the approach and so I did: but I wasn’t prepared in the least for what I saw when we were at about 30-40 meters.

I had released my shoulder straps quite a bit at that point, so I was floating over my seat. As I turned to look outside, at first I looked back and saw one of our Soyuz solar panels, which I had seen before of course. Then my eyes caught something in the peripheral view. And as I slowly turned my gaze and when I realized what I was seeing, I was overcome by pure amazement and joy:  the Space Station was there, but not just any view. The huge solar panels were flooded in a blaze of orange light, vivid, warm almost alien. I couldn’t help exclaiming something aloud, which you can probably hear in the recordings of our docking, since at that point we were “hot mic”  with Mission Control. Anton reminded me of that and so I tried to contain my amazement and return to the docking monitoring. When I peaked again later, the orange glow was gone. 

Butch told me later that he had heard my amazement on com when  "the Station had turned orange.”  I didn’t know, but apparently there’s only a few seconds during day-night transition that the Station is lit by that amazing orange glow. And it happened to be exactly when I peaked outside!  I feel very fortunate that I had such a unique first glimpse of our human outpost in space: such a great welcome!

Which was only trumped, by the way, by the amazing welcome our veteran crewmates Sasha, Elena and Butch prepared for us!

Immediately after our arrival they took us to the Service Module to say hello to our friends and relatives in Baikonur and as soon as we have a few minutes break in the cm coverage they started to “ set the table”  with all the food they had already warmed for us!

God Speed Samantha!!!

Logbook: L-1

Well, this is likely my last countdown logbook (or maybe the second last). Over two weeks ago I told you about our final exams in Star City. In the meantime, the countdown is almost down to zero and it will be soon time to start counting up... from orbit!
 
Just to give you a few (mainly visual) impressions from the past few weeks:
 
... back in Moscow we participated in the traditional visit to the Gagarin's tomb on the Red Square, after a press conference and a visit to Yuri Gagarin's office in Star City, where we signed "the" book

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/sets/72157649166545521

...Tuesday last week, after a traditional "breakfast" where everybody gathers around a table full of food, but nobody eats, we boarded a plane to Baikonur to start our quarantine

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/tags/departure

...on the following day, we were up early to drive to the Cosmodrome to meet our spaceship: we were in the descent module both in flight suits and in the Sokol, practicing descending down from the orbital module; we did com checks; we reviewed where the survival equipment is stowed; we familiarize ourselves with our space vehicle

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/sets/72157649274818191/

 ...we planted trees (Terry and I now have our own tree on the cosmonaut alley)

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/tags/tree/

...we trained our body and our vestibular system on the tilt table and the rotating chair

https://twitter.com/AstroSamantha/status/536023881803251712
 
...we signed thousands of photographs

https://twitter.com/AstroSamantha/status/536024216684875776
 
... we went to meet our spaceship one more time; this time it was already in its shroud and after we left, it was transferred to the rocket assembly building to be mated to the rocket

http://www.energia.ru/ru/iss/iss42/photo_11-19_2.html
 
...we visited the cosmodrome museum and even the original little rooms of Gagarin and Korolyov

https://twitter.com/AstroSamantha/status/535354588757778432
 
...our rocket was rolled out to the pad

https://www.flickr.com/photos/astrosamantha/tags/rollout

...we had a meeting with representatives of the search and rescue teams, hundreds of people and dozens of assets deployed along the ground track of our ascent all the way to the Pacific to rescue us in case of need; and also ready to rescue us back in Kazakhstan should we need to do an emergency landing in the following few orbits.
 
...we had a meeting with the ballistic group, giving us the latest information from their side.
 
To spend a few more words on that: if you're counting down to the second, you might want to know that start has been moved by one second to 00:01:14 Moscow time (that's 21:01:14 GMT, but we use Moscow local time on the Soyuz), with a maximum acceptable delay of 10 seconds. The rocket will burn for 528 seconds, thus inserting us into a slightly elliptical orbit with an average altitude of 220km. The phase angle will be about 25°, which means that we will be 25° behind the Station. Since we'll be also about 200km lower, we will be faster and catching up (that's orbital mechanics for you). 25° is a bit less than the ideal phase angle of 30°, so we will have to raise our orbit quite a bit: we don't want to catch up with Station too fast!


About 45 min after launch and then again about 45 min later we will give engine burns of over 30m/s each that will raise our orbit and, that's the magic of orbital mechanics, also slow us down closer to the speed of ISS. 
 
Later we'll have two more small correction burns to completely fix our orbit and then, about 3 hours and 45 min from launch we'll start the rendezvous sequence with the Station, progressively raising our orbit to Station altitude and diminishing our relative speed (at docking, it will be only about 8 cm/sec!). At about the same time the Station will maneuver to turn around 180° and put the Russian segment in the direction in flight: in the very last portion of rendezvous, we will actually fly ahead of the Station, so in the final approach we'll be flying in front of it.
 
Docking is planned for 5:53 Moscow time (02:53 GMT) when we'll be about to cross the equator off the Western coast of South America. But probably we'll dock a bit early: once we're aligned and station keeping at 150m from our docking port, most likely Mission Control Moscow will give us permission to give the final approach command a bit earlier. 
 
But the way, due to maintenance work at the usual Pad 1, we will launch from Pad 31. Since we can not go to the rollout as prime crew, I'll see it for the first time on launch night...ehm, tomorrow!

Here's a picture of the traditional blessing of the rocket this morning.

+Daria Musk my favorite Rock Star!

APPLY TO FLY TO SPACE, FOR REAL
Earthlings! Remember our little-kid dreams of flying to space? Something out-of-this-world is happening! There is now a contest where you can apply to fly to space, for real! Srsly! +Spaceship Earth Grants is going to send someone(s) to space for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to gain an "orbital perspective" and come home to share it with the world!

ASTRO-ARTISTS
That's my favorite part about this project, the winner(s) will be picked based on how they say they would share their newfound experience. It's like they're looking for an astronaut artist! A storyteller! A painter! A photographer! A musician! A blogger! A dancer! Anyone who can translate the remarkable feeling for the rest of humankind!

IF I COULD FLY TO SPACE
Sadly, I'm not eligible for this contest because I've happily been behind the scenes on this project (because my favorite astronaut +Ron Garan invited me) to lend some ideas and creativity to the campaign! I'm also a judge, woo!! But if I was allowed to apply... Here's what I would say:

"If I could fly to space, sit among the stars, feel the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders as I float with a freedom reserved for angels and a lucky few... I think I'd hear the notes of the galaxy whispering in my heart, rearranging themselves into a celestial melody that I'd hum until my earthling feet touched back on my home-ground, where I would sing for the whole world, my space-inspired "orbital perspective" song. Music is a universal language that I trust could express the emotion and elation and revelation of my otherworldly trip, it would echo off the internet and emanate through earbuds and reverberate through rippling goosebumps with shared wonder of people all over the world. Yes I would share my experience through music and the internet and make a megaphone to recreate this magical moment with everyone."

APPLY NOW
Anyone can enter and the coolest part is that the more people apply, the more can fly! They will send 1 out of every 50,000 applicants! That's craziness! Also a bunch of the earliest applicants will be eligible for special prizes like weightless flights (I hope I get to do one of those!!) and other cool stuff. Go for it aspiring-astro-explorers! You can apply right here: https://www.spaceshipearthgrants.com

XO, Daria

If there‘s one thing I‘ve learned in my travels around the world, it‘s that people are people. There are more things that we share in common than things that separate us. We may be born in different countries, belong to different generations, speak different languages, but we are one species, with the same hopes and dreams for our children, for our communities, and for our planet.

Cool 14 second video!

After delivering almost three tons of supplies and scientific experiments to the crew of the International Space Station, Orbital Sciences Corporation's Cygnus cargo spacecraft, the SS Janice Voss, left the station on Friday, Aug. 15.

Ground controllers in the Mission Control Center at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston detached Cygnus from the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module and maneuver it into release position. With the assistance of NASA Flight Engineer Reid Wiseman, Expedition 40 Flight Engineer Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency then used the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm, operated from the station’s cupola robotics workstation, to release Cygnus.

Once the spacecraft was a safe distance from the station, its engines fired twice Sunday, Aug. 17, pushing it into Earth's atmosphere where it burned up over the Pacific Ocean. Station crew members had an opportunity to photograph Cygnus' fiery reentry back to Earth, gathering engineering data that could be applied to the entry path of the European Space Agency's Automated Transfer Vehicle cargo ship in January 2015.

Join us if you can. It will be great fun.

Astronauts Ron Garan and Anousheh Ansari join us for this special AWB Hangout, "Astronomy In the Development of STEM Education". Though often neglected in traditional educational systems, astronomy is an ideal way to present science and other technical fields in schools. With limited resources, especially in developing countries, astronomy offers an accessible "laboratory" in a subject that already fascinates children. AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania is just one example of how astronomy is used to promote science learning and curriculum-building in developing countries. This panel discussion will look at how astronomy has been used for development and the opportunities that remain.

Guests:
Ron Garan is a former astronaut, aquanaut, and test pilot who is also an entrepreneur. He has founded multiple companies and socially-focused organizations. His social media following of 3.6 million makes him one of Google Plus’ “Top 25 Followed”, and a Kred “Top 1% Influencer”.

Anousheh Ansari was a co-sponsor of the $10 million Ansari X Prize for the first private launch of a reusable manned spacecraft, and the first female private space explorer. She is a serial entrepreneur and currently the chairman of Prodea Systems which she co-founded.

Kevin Govender is the Director of the International Astronomical Union's Office of Astronomy for Development in South Africa, which was created to use astronomy to make the world a better place.

Mponda Malozo is an environmentalist in Tanzania who also works with the educational system as a science consultant promotes astronomy through outreach activities. He is the Tanzania Coordinator of the Universe Awareness Foundation and a project manager for AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania.___Join us if you can. It will be great fun.
