Liquid hydrogen is a tricky taskmaster.
James Webb Telescope nearinfrared image of Neptune and its moons including Triton shining brightly (top left).
Amazing image that.
NASA managed to fill their SLS rocket in a test yesterday with liquid hydrogen, despite getting a few leaks again. Seems they managed them ok though, and rumours they might push for another attempted launch next Tuesday 27th Sept.
I can't wait to see what James Webb makes of the rings around Uranus.
That’s an unwarranted intrusion into my privacy.
Holy **** that is absolutely stunning.
One day humans are going to build a spacecraft that can explore the solar system. Imagine approaching Neptune, being able to pick out the detail of the storms, the turbulence, the moon system. Will be mind blowing.
And who knows, maybe by then we’ll have sacked Rodgers.
ffs m8 this fred is about science fakt not science fikshon
soz hun msg me x
Data collected on the orbital perturbation of Dimorphos as a result of the impact will let us know if this is effective. Larger impactors will be needed against larger bodies.
I’d get those rings seen by a doctor . I’ve heard JamesWebb hasn’t had his checks done
Looks like the next attempt to get the SLS Artemis mega-rocket into space will be at 1.04am Eastern (6.04am GMT) tomorrow.
Yep they're going for it by all accounts, despite losing some insulation when the rocket had to ride out hurricane Nicole. The only way to replace this would be to roll back to the VAB. Looks like they accepting the risk and pushing on for tomorrow. It's going to be a night launch (if it happens) which is a shame.
Looking good right now….remember early Apollo flights, has a similar feel to it
Well they finally did it, and it all went quite smoothly this time by all accounts. The most powerful rocket ever to reach orbit. Lift-off at about 2:30 in this video.
can track her here...only works on desktop browsers for whatever reason NASA thought was good!
