NASA - Sun-Earth Day 2010 - 0 views

  •  
    "All magnetic fields are produced by moving or spinning charged particles…somewhere Magnetism is a force in nature that is produced by electric fields in motion. This movement can involve electrons 'spinning' around atomic nuclei, flowing through a conducting wire, or ions moving through space in an organized stream. The remarkable thing is that whenever a charged particle moves, the electric field it produces is also moving through space, and it is this moving electric field that is detected as a magnetic field.

NASA Piggybacks SmartPhone Satellites > ENGINEERING.com - 0 views

  •  
    ""Out of the box smartphones offer capabilities needed for satellites, including fast processors, versatile operating systems, multiple miniature sensors, high resolution cameras, GPS receivers and several radios," said NASA. Add to all of those components the fact that cellphones are built to take a beating, and you can see why NASA has faith in the fact that these "PhoneSats" could bring about a new era of cheap space and earth science."

NASA Great Moonbuggy Race The Competition - 0 views

  •  
    "Students are required to design a vehicle that addresses a series of engineering problems that are similar to problems faced by the original Moonbuggy team. Each Moonbuggy will be human powered and carry two students, one female and one male, over a half-mile simulated lunar terrain course including "craters", rocks, "lava" ridges, inclines and "lunar" soil."

Powered Flight Deck of the Space Shuttle Endeavour photos - 0 views

  •  
    The most complex machine ever built by mankind. Check it out. Just think, the commander of the shuttle must know ever knob, dial and gauge and know how they all interact. Mind bending! After all that they must dead-stick the landing from space at enormous speeds, hit the spot and no go-arounds. One shot only. Interior Photos of Endeavour These photos capture the Flight Deck (cockpit) of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, fully powered for one of the final times. Just a few weeks later, at 9:58am EDT on May 11, Endeavour was powered down for the final time in history. It was the last of the three space shuttles to have power. Below, other views show the mid-deck, gutted of its lockers and storage areas, and three final photos show the white room entrance in the Orbiter Processing Facility, signed by thousands over the years.

    "Name That Asteroid! OSIRIS-REx mission NASA / Goddard / University of Arizona OSIRIS-REx is going to fly to an asteroid and bring back some pieces. Right now, the asteroid's name is 1999 RQ36, but we think students can do better! The Planetary Society, MIT's Lincoln Laboratory, and the University of Arizona are asking students around the world to suggest better names for the asteroid. Enter by December 2, 2012 to have a chance to name a piece of the solar system!"

Cassini Solstice Mission: Scientist for a Day - 0 views

  •  
    "The Science Planning Team picked three targets to be imaged. Pick your favorite target, and write a persuasive essay describing the scientific merits of your choice. Your decision should be based on which image would yield the most scientific results. Just like actual scientists do, you are to explain what you hope to learn from the image you have selected. The artistic value of the image can be an added bonus to your decision."

Endeavour Mated to SCA Time-Lapse - YouTube - 0 views

  •  
    "At the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Endeavour is mounted atop NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, or SCA, in preparation for its ferry flight to California. The SCA, a modified 747 jetliner, will fly Endeavour to Los Angeles where it will be placed on public display at the California Science Center. This is the final ferry flight scheduled in the Space Shuttle Program era."
