Apollo 11 Launch - The Apollo 11 Saturn V space vehicle climbs toward orbit on July 16, 1969, bearing astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. Armstrong and Aldrin would make history as the first men on the moon,
I wanted to illuminate the whole earth. There is enough electricity to become a second sun. Light would appear around the equator, as a ring around Saturn. Nikola Tesla, The Nikola Tesla Interview hidden for 116 years!
NASA has published a new photo taken by the Cassini space probe of Mimas, one of Saturn's moons, which provides an excellent perspective view of the mountain in the center of Herschel crater, which is not huge in absolute terms but has a diameter which is almost a third of that of Mimas. The mountain is high even by Earth standards with at least 6 kilometers (4 miles) above the crater's floor and stands out even more on the small moon. Read the details in the article!
This mosaic, created from images taken by NASAs Cassini spacecraft during its closest flyby of Saturns moon Mimas, looks straight at the moons huge Herschel Crater and reveals new insights about the moons surface. Bright-walled craters, with floors and surroundings about 20 percent darker than the steep crater walls, are notable in this view.
Scientists think Saturn's gravity squeezes Enceldus, heating its interior. Key indicators of hidden vent activity include the presence in the plumes of silica particles and methane. Cassini will attempt to detect molecular hydrogen during Wednesday's encounter. This would be a strong signal that hot vents exist on the rocky ocean floor. If that is the case, it would be another plus-point in the moon's habitability potential.
The NASA Cassini spacecraft has done its deepest dive to date through the icy plumes that spew from Saturn’s moon, Enceladus. The new findings from this expedition may hint at the possibility of habitable conditions in the global sea beneath the hard exterior of the moon. hydrothermal activity occurring on the ocean floor contains pH …
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has returned images from its final close approach to Saturn's oddball moon Hyperion, upholding the moon's reputation as one of the most bizarre objects in the solar system. The views show Hyperion's deeply impact-scarred surface, with many craters displaying dark material on their floors.
