Inside the spacecraft, Anders could feel the ride smoothing out, and while he hoped the rocket’s fins hadn’t been ripped off by the violence of the launch, he figured he was probably okay given that, by all indications, he was still alive.

One of my favorite soda cans.
The space shuttle can from the 1980's soda space race.

One of my favorite moments in NASA mission transcripts is the moment when the astronauts first reach orbit and see the Earth from space. You can hear the giddiness in their voices.

I have Photoshop now!!! I get to explore a whole new world with my camera, my computer, and my cats, and I'm so excited!

Other technological adventures in new worlds happens in Margot Lee Shetterly's Hidden Figures, which unfortunately wasn't as magical as my own current journey.

While I love the topic of the book, Shetterly's writing reads like a research paper, when it should actually read more like a biography of these women's lives. To take such fascinating, unexplored lives, and dry them up with a bunch of unnecessary backstory and jargon made it impossible for me to even get to the halfway point of this history. I had high hopes that this book would follow in the footsteps of Radium Girls, but instead it fell flat.

What's a history you love? What's a history you struggle with?

Yesterday we celebrated not only the 15th year anniversary of Udvar-Hazy Center, but also @virgingalactic’s first flight into space in our own way: by visiting the Space Shuttle Discovery and sending best wishes to everyone who contributed to its missions.

After having a total of 39 missions in over 27 years of service, now Discovery is retired in NOVA waiting for visitors like you. 
Go see this massive spacecraft and get excited for the next frontier because now is the time.

The Soviet Lunar Lander (Lunniy Korabl)

Four unmanned LKs were successfully flown in earth orbit for test purposes. The LK was declared ready, and would have landed a single cosmonaut on the moon. Because of a string of launch failures of the N-1 rocket, the Soviet moon programme was cancelled in 1974. Details of the programme were only released in 1990

2018 MAMA Awards - Hong Kong 🎊
Dec. 14, 2018

From experience, I've come to believe that the biggest threat to success, is success. The weight of expectations, sometimes self-imposed, can be unbearable. Fear that these glory days... past. The 'newness' of success can't be repeated.. What's an IDOL to do?
Call me crazy, but RM seems.. more resolved. 🧐 I'm sick of this Fake Love too. Angered even. I'm growing into myself...mistakes and fears and strengths. Strengths. 💪🏼 Hmm.. Perhaps success is a feeling, not a goal. And the achievements thus far help us take command of, and come together, for what's next. 
I'm actually excited. 😋🚀

Congratulations to @richardbranson and @virgingalactic on their recent accomplishments in the high risk high reward commercial space industry!
.
.
@virgingalactic has a unique approach to space flight in that their rockets are tethered to a plane and are released at a high altitude. This could very well be a better approach for space tourism seen how most ground based rocket launches are extremely turbulent (lots could go wrong) and require enormous amounts of energy and fuel for the first stage to reach the altitude of an airplane.
.
.
I look forward to seeing how @virgingalactic's approach here fares against the competition and pans out once the commercial space industry is well underway. Right now it seems as though @spacex and @blueorigin have the lead but @boeing @lockheedmartin and perhaps @raytheoncompany are planning to enter the space race. The more the merrier IMO. Let the new space race begin!

Apollo 17 Hasselblad film, 1972. This is what we believe to be one of the original NASA first copies of the lunar camera film after its return to earth. Apollo astronauts were issued with Hasselblad handheld cameras to record footage from their activities. With the help of the museum’s light table and scopes, we were able to pick out notable frames from the thousands in the donated spool. .

December 14, 1972. 46 years ago. Apollo 17 blasts off from the lunar surface. Eugene Cernan becomes the final man to set foot on the Moon as he follows Harrison Schmitt back into the Lunar Module to prepare for ascent. One week prior, Apollo 17 launched from Cape Canaveral atop a Saturn V rocket, beginning the final Apollo moon mission. Onboard the flight was Commander Eugene Cernan, Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt. The Lunar Module nicknamed Challenger touched down in the lunar highlands in the area of Mare Imbrium, an area known for high volcanic activity at 1455 EST on December.11/1972. While stationed on the Moon, Cernan and Harrison conducted three moonwalks to collect samples of suspected volcanic rock and soil, and plant seismic charges for the purpose of underground mapping to be detonated after departure back to Earth. The two astronauts also set up several pieces of equitment for measuring Earth's gravity. One of the most intriguing discoveries made during the misson was that of orange soil at Shorty crater which was suspected to be of volcanic origins. At the end of the mission as Cernan stepped off of the Moon he said, "I'm on the surface; and, as I take Man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come- but we believe not too long into the future-I'd like to just say what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind." Apollo 17 jettisoned from the surface at 1755 EST, December.14/1972 and docked with the Command Module. After transferring equitment for the Lunar Module and Service Module, both were purposely detached to allow only the Command Module to return to Earth. The Lunar Module was deliberately shot back at the Moon to crash on the surface to test the seimsmic equitment which had been left behind. Apollo 17 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean at 1425, December.19/1972. #apollo #apollomoonlanding #moon #moonlanding #cernan #eugenecernan #harrisonschmitt #schmitt #evans #ronaldevans #apollo17

On December 14th, 1972, humans left the surface of the Moon for what would be the last time in the 20th century.
•
Pictured here is the CSM America with Ron Evans on board as seen by Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt in the LM Challenger.
•
It’s disappointing that humans never made it back to the moon in the 20th century. I’m hopeful we may finally be on the path to going back to the Moon and then to the planets beyond to paraphrase Kennedy.

Here’s to the future of lunar exploration!

Separated by 37 years Space Shuttle Enterprise is reunited with Boeing 747 NASA 905 as it is ferried to its final resting place atop the Intrepid aircraft carrier in New York.

Built in 1970, NASA 905 was acquired by NASA in 1974 from American Airlines and modified for its shuttle-carrying role by The Boeing Company.
NASA 905 performed a total of 222 shuttle ferry flights from 1977 through 2012.

Built in 1970, NASA 905 was acquired by NASA in 1974 from American Airlines and modified for its shuttle-carrying role by The Boeing Company. NASA 905 performed a total of 222 shuttle ferry flights from 1977 through 2012. #spaceflight  #rocketsspace  #spaceexplorers  #astronaut  #spaceman  #astronautics  #spacetravel  #spacemissions  #spacemen  #stargazing  #astronaut  #spacesuits  #manonthemoon  #projectapollo  #spacehistory  #spaceconquest  #spacerace  #spacestation  #rocket  #nasa  #spacecraft  #rocket  #nerd  #awesome  #spacex  #cosmonauts  #spaceshuttle  #enterprise

Day 2 of the 12 days of stools - Space helmet: the ultimate mask? Whatever, today’s offering is a transmission all the way from deep space (Manchester). He of 808 fame, Graham Massey took over Manchester DJ Kelvin Browns NTS show for a 2 hour show exploring space and all things surrounding it. What does it sound like? Well, if we ever stumble across another civilisation, or they stumble across our golden record, probably a lot like that. Music drifts in and out of speech and old news footage. 30 years on from 808 state first rocking my world you’ve done it again, quality Mr Massey #space #dj #3stools @massonix808 #manchester #madchester @nts_radio #kelvinbrown #instamusic #sunra #bertrandrussell #gilscottheron #yurigagarin #spacerace #techno #acid #summeroflove

December 14, 1962, Mariner 2 (Mariner-Venus 1962), an American space probe to Venus, was the first robotic space probe to conduct a successful planetary encounter. The first successful spacecraft in the NASA Mariner program... The Mariner 2 spacecraft was launched from Cape Canaveral on August 27, 1962 and passed as close as 34,773 kilometers (21,607 mi) to Venus on December 14, 1962

The mission proved to be the first fully successful interplanetary mission performed by any nation. After a midcourse correction on 4 September, the spacecraft flew by Venus at a range of 34,762 km on 14 December 1962. During a 42-minute scan of the planet, Mariner 2 gathered significant data on the Venusian atmosphere and surface before continuing on to heliocentric orbit.
However, Mariner 2 did not carry a camera, since cameras were not considered 'scientific' equipment, something NASA rectified on the next space probe.

I love a size comparison diagram! This drawing, made while Apollo was still in the design stage, shows the vast difference in scale between the one-person Mercury and the crew-of-three Apollo spacecraft, as well as their respective launch vehicles, Atlas and the Saturn V. The advances that took place in just a few short years are amazing! The image is taken from the book Americans in Space, part of the American Heritage Junior Library series. My copy is from the fourth printing, in 1965.

"SpaceShipTwo, welcome to space.” This was the celebratory tweet sent by Virgin Galactic staff earlier today after Sir Richard Branson's two passenger rocket ship launched to the edge of space today. 🚀 
The tycoon is currently in a space race with Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk to send the first fee paying passengers into outer space.
The rocket ship, carrying two pilots and a mannequin called Annie, took off from California's Mojave Desert at just before 10am.
It reached a height of 82.5km or 51.4 miles which is further than the altitude at which astronaut wings have been awarded by US agencies.
Tourists are expected to pay $250,000 a ticket for a trip to get the greatest view of earth. 🌍 📸 Zumapress/MEGA

Have your mind blown. 1969, Michael Collins took this picture of the Lunar Module, containing Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong with Earth in the background, during the Apollo 11 mission. This makes him the only person ever to have lived who was not inside the frame of the photo. Matter cannot be created or destroyed. That means that every human that lived up to the point of this photo being taken still exists, at least in some form, and every human that has been born since then was also is in this photo, at least in some form. 🤯 .

Richard Branson always seems to enjoy life. I really like his attitude towards work as well. You don‘t need to know everything, just find someone who knows what you don‘t and work together. Help each other succeed. It is very inspiring and he has so many different companies. In Japan he is not really known though.
