Mars she is a bit of a fixer upper but there is potential
It would take a bit of effort and time but we might make it I to a lush paradise to rival Earth someday.
Hopefully not on the backs of Belters :)

The Spider Nebula
The spider part of "The Spider and the Fly" nebulae, IC 417 abounds in star formation, as seen in this infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS).

Located in the constellation Auriga, IC 417 lies about 10,000 light-years away. It is in the outer part of the Milky Way, almost exactly in the opposite direction from the galactic center. This region was chosen as the subject of a research project by a group of students, teachers and scientists as part of the NASA/IPAC Teacher Archive Research Program (NITARP) in 2015.

Rocket pack costume update
Harness and belt, wrist computer, boot covers with thrusters and rocketpack itself have begun the paint phase. Antonio picked out the paint colors, kind of a little steampunkish with steel and rust. The dome of the rocketpack didnt come out as smooth as i wanted but maybe witb detail paint it can look beat up and bruised. Still trying to figure out what sort of flight suit Antonio should wear. Just over three weeks until Space City Comic Con and then two additional weeks till Comicpalooza.

What do you think they should be called
Thanos is going to play a huge part in these movies, especially since he hasn’t done much yet. So the prevailing rumor is the first movie will be about Thanos acquiring the Infinity Stones and becoming a major threat, then part two will be the big battle.

I really hope ABC finds a way to make it work for Atwell to do both series. +Agent Carter​ season two tried so new stuff didn't take itself seriously and had fun. As for the Bobbi and Hunter spinoff I was only like warm for that concept.

Magic Eye Mercury
This image offers an intriguing view of Mercury’s Kertész crater, as viewed by NASA’s Messenger orbiter. Reminiscent of a ‘Magic Eye’ optical illusion, the image may show one of two things: either a mound bulging out of the planetary surface, looming towards the camera like a dome, or – correctly – a crater that dips into Mercury’s crust.

In a rush to get first trailer and image out they let quality suffer and thus tainted the first impression.
Maybe they should have taken the time to do it right instead of now having an uphill battle to defend all their missteps.
What do you think are you going to see the movie or did their mistakes poison the well for you?

Weather, calendar, morning news as you get ready. The UI looks pretty minimalist which is what you would want for a mirror over lay. He doesn't talk about the hardware required to run it. How long before you can buy it a home depot or Lowe's?

While I am not one to usually agree with Lori Garver but on this we can agree
It is hard to say we are making fast progress when we are going to take longer to get to first crew test flight than it took to build 4 classes of spacecraft and boot on the moon from agency creation.

I don't think staying the course is the right plan. I think ARM is not long for the world and it is time for a pivot. Where do the international partners want to go? The moon, where does NASA want to go? Far side of the Moon. What can you pitch to next president as achievable in 8 years? A gateway station on the far orbit of the Moon. Allows us to work those long duration tech, allows others to work telerobotics to build lunar outpost and eventually surface ops. Orion can be the transit vehicle to and from the gateway but do we need to SLS? I am not convinced. Falcon 9 heavy for $90M can get 15 tons to... more »

Allows us to work those long duration tech, allows others to work telerobotics to build lunar outpost and eventually surface ops. Orion can be the transit vehicle to and from the gateway but do we need to SLS? I am not convinced. Falcon 9 heavy for $90M can get 15 tons to Mars, but you aren't going direct to Mars. You will assembly in orbit (probably distant retrograde lunar orbit) a larger transit vehicle or two (one to deploy all the preposition assets the other for crew) so do we need a larger SLS with all its development and operations cost?

There are other parts you could sell to Sen Shelby to garner his support (cause really he and others care about jobs for their space centers not actual exploration) Using existing heavy lift and a solar electric propulsion cycler(which again would be test bed for long duration needs) you could drop the parts in earth orbit and then bring them to lunar location for assembly.

Long term I don't see even Orion going to Mars it is just crew transfer to the Mars transit vehicle. Carrying that 25,000 lbs to Mars and back costs orders of magnitude more in propellant than just sending a new Orion up 900 days later when the transit vehicle comes home.

It is time to look at what is within one President's two terms cause Mars is a 20 year out mirage with too many elections in between. Kennedy gave a deadline of end of decade cause in jan 1969 when he would have left office (barring his murder) would a new president really kill a boots to the Moon flight when it is just months away from pulling it off. The public is myopic and distracted easily by celebrity rehabs and reality TV to believe or even be interested in a journey to Mars at this point given the time scale. Is there a place for Orion sure a the lunar shuttle making regular crew rotations and supply runs at much more frequency than what current plans call for. In my opinion continuing/staying the course is setting yourself up for cancellation cause progress is not going to be achieved in tangible and visible milestones for the public or congress to believe they are getting a return on investment when you only fly on 4 year centers. Can we stop being a jobs program and get to the business of space exploration.___

Donor fatigue or a poisoned well what do you think
Personally starting a campaign right around tax day and after CBS had already filed their lawsuit plus C&D to others it wasn't exactly the best time for another trek campaign. Also the trek universe has several high profile efforts going on and instead of working together due to egos or creative differences how many various incarnations of fan films can the public support simultaneously?

Probing Dark Energy
Researchers are using a large sample of galaxy cluster to investigate dark energy. The details of X-ray emission from over 300 galaxy clusters were obtained with Chandra. The galaxy clusters range in distance from about 760 million to 8.7 billion light years from Earth. The study shows that dark energy has not changed over billions of years.


These four galaxy clusters were part of a large survey of over 300 clusters used to investigate dark energy, the mysterious energy that is currently driving the accelerating expansion of the Universe, as described in our latest press release. In these composite images, X-rays from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (purple) have been combined with optical light from the Hubble Space Telescope and Sloan Digital Sky Survey (red, green, and blue).

Makemake, the Dwarf Planet and its Moon MK 2
Image Type: Illustration
Makemake is one of several dwarf planets that reside in the frigid outer realm of our solar system called the Kuiper Belt, a "junkyard" of countless icy bodies left over from our solar system's formation.

After discovering Makemake in 2005, astronomers had searched several times for a companion orbiting the icy world. Now, the Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered a tiny moon around Makemake that is estimated to be 100 miles wide. Nicknamed MK 2, the moon is more than 1,300 times fainter than Makemake, which is 870 miles across. MK 2 is 13,000 miles away from the dwarf planet

Very interesting talk from +Astro Teller​ that expands on his recent ted talk. It definitely is a different culture at X compared to NASA though we could certainly give some of these ideas like fail fast learning along the way, premortem and Audacious awards.

With the HTC vive and oculus rift hitting consumer hands is this the tipping point for VR/AR or do we still have a ways to go for wide spread adoption and use beyond the initial novelty. Will it be industry adoption or games that puts the knee in the curve.

The Spider Nebula
The spider part of "The Spider and the Fly" nebulae, IC 417 abounds in star formation, as seen in this infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS).

Located in the constellation Auriga, IC 417 lies about 10,000 light-years away. It is in the outer part of the Milky Way, almost exactly in the opposite direction from the galactic center. This region was chosen as the subject of a research project by a group of students, teachers and scientists as part of the NASA/IPAC Teacher Archive Research Program (NITARP) in 2015.

Mars she is a bit of a fixer upper but there is potential
It would take a bit of effort and time but we might make it I to a lush paradise to rival Earth someday.
Hopefully not on the backs of Belters :)

Galactic fountains of gas, such as those erupting from nearby galaxy Hercules A, appear to be aligned among a dozen remote galaxies, a new study suggests

“Naively we expect that shouldn’t happen,” says Ryan Hickox, an astrophysicist at Dartmouth College who was not involved with this study. Black holes, even supermassive ones, are minuscule compared with filaments of galaxies that can span hundreds of millions of light-years. These filaments are the threads along which most matter in the universe congregates, branching through space like a cosmic spider web. Though galaxies live there, they are thought to form and develop independently of what the filaments are doing. A twisting filament should have no influence over what’s happening around one of its resident black holes.

And yet that’s the explanation favored by study lead Russ Taylor, an astrophysicist at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. “What we’re seeing is the result of a very large region in the early universe spinning coherently in the same direction,” he says. If that’s true, it adds a “new wrinkle to explain how large-scale structure formed.”___

Hubble has had 26 years of amazing photos but it has also benefited life on earth. The software fix for its blurry vision has been used to improve mammogram and cancer detection. Space exploration #forthebenefitofall

On this day in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was launched aboard Space Shuttle Discovery.

Despite an early case of myopia, has gone on to vastly exceed its intended lifespan, peering deeper into space that any other telescope. But perhaps its most valuable contribution to humanity was an unexpected one: software that was developed to improve Hubble’s blurry images also improved breast cancer detection.

A trippy look at the CIA's backup plan to fake the Moon landing with Stanley Kubrick in case the Apollo 11 ran into problems
I am sure some Moon hoaxers will feel this is how it really was filmed.
Staring Ron pearlman(Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) and Rupert grint(Harry Potter). Available on Netflix
Rated R for graphic violence, drug use and nudity it was the 60's after all.

Former NASA robotics spin off to work on motors and powertrain for the eracing circuit. A custom invertor and new motor were just too much for the young company to pull off for season 2. Best of luck for season 3.

The video was compiled by stitching together several hundred hours of Herschel observations. It spans a vast portion – almost 40% – of the plane of the Milky Way, where most of the stars in the Galaxy form and reside.

Alright Internet let's make this LEGO set real
"Activate Interlocks,
Dynatherms Connected,
Infracells Up,
Megathrusters are Go!"

When combined, the five lions form Voltron which stands around 16 inches in height and weighs close to 1kg
