▶ New Horizons (Tribute). Hundreds of images from NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto stitched together in retro newsreel form with audio of American science fiction author Ray Bradbury reading his beautiful poem "If Only We Had Taller Been." On Nov. 12, 1971, on the eve of NASA's Mariner 9 spacecraft going into orbit at Mars, Bradbury took part in a symposium at Caltech During that event, Ray Bradbury read his poem, "If Only We Had Taller Been."

Pluto New Horizons mission gets a poetic tribute from Ray Bradbury in 1971, reading his poem "If Only We Had Taller Been." On July 14, 2015 the New Horizons space probe zipped past Pluto going 30,000 miles per hour. It carries the ashes of the man who discovered the dwarf planet, along with several spectrometers to analyze Pluto's surface and one telescopic camera. #Amazing #Science #STEM #inspirations #Discovery #PlutoFlyBy
Mariner 4 performed the first successful flyby of the planet Mars, returning the first pictures of the Martian surface and the first images of another planet ever returned from deep space. (Credit: NASA)

Mariner 4 was designed to conduct closeup scientific observations of Mars. Why is this so special? My parents picked my names so my initials (MAR) would reflect my birthdate proximity to the fly-by date (July 15).

Speeding along at 30,800 miles per hour New Horizons will pierce the Pluto system like a smartly aimed arrow.
Oh Pluto. (Producers: Werth, Lavein) A new song by folk musician Craig Werth called “Oh Pluto” is “inspired by NASA’s New Horizons Mission to Pluto and the quest for knowledge and understanding in the human spirit,” says Werth. The song underscores how we want to “grow our understanding, to learn all that we can.”

Three historic landings: This graphic shows the team's current best guess at how events unfolded. The probe landed on the comet at around 3.30pm GMT 2014.11.12, but then bounced twice - first to a height of 0.62 miles (1km) and then to a much lower height of 65ft (20 metres) before coming to rest. It is currently thought to be about 0.62 miles (1km) from its intended landing site. Mona Evans, "Rosetta the Comet Chaser" www.bellaonline.c...

An historic event -- On 12 November 2014, ESA's Rosetta mission landed its Philae probe on comet 67P. Unluckily, the probe bounced after the first touch of landing (see the infographic).Finally, it landed in a shadowed area, where Philea lost power and the contact was broken. Two months later, its location is still not known. Rosetta will continue orbiting the comet, doing its own exploration during a year.

A Long and Winding Road: Cassini Celebrates 15 Years - Since launching on Oct. 15, 1997, the spacecraft has logged more than 3.8 billion miles (6.1 billion kilometers) of exploration - enough to circle Earth more than 152,000 times. After flying by Venus twice, Earth, and then Jupiter on its way to Saturn, Cassini pulled into orbit around the ringed planet in 2004 and has been spending its last eight years weaving around Saturn, its glittering rings and intriguing moons.

Pluto's Moons and Possible Rings May Be Hazards: New Horizons and the Gauntlet It May Encounter in 2015 NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is now almost seven years into its 9.5-year journey across the solar system to explore Pluto and its system of moons. Just over two years from now, in January 2015, New Horizons will begin encounter operations, which will culminate in a close approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015, and the first-ever exploration of a planet in the Kuiper Belt.
New Horizons is a space probe launched by NASA on 19 January 2006 to study the dwarf planet Pluto and the Kuiper belt. It is expected to be the first spacecraft to fly by and study Pluto and its moons, Charon, Nix, Hydra, Kerberos, and Styx, with an estimated arrival date at the Pluto–Charon system of 14 July 2015. As of 19 August 2013, its distance to Pluto is about 5.53 AU (about 26.38 AU from Earth), with radio signals taking about 3.66 hours to travel to the spacecraft from Earth (a 7.3-hour

NASA/JPL Deep Space Network. There are three telescopes about 120 degrees in longitude apart. The strategic placement of these sites permits constant communication with spacecraft as our planet rotates – before a distant spacecraft sinks below the horizon at one DSN site, another site can pick up the signal and carry on communicating.
NASA JPL's Deep Space Network consists of three radio telescopes strategically located at Goldstone, Ca. (USA), Madrid, Spain and Canberra, Australia. They maintain coverage around the globe for spacecraft over 10,000 miles from Earth. www.bellaonline.c...
