Do not bury these moments during the busy week. Surprise yourself. Discuss with your friends and family. Think about what is needed to make these achievements possible and what they mean for the future.
Don’t go right now.
About the universe
That magical moment was the magical black and white image of a helicopter shadow on the surface of the Red Planet taken during the first flight to Mars. Mimi Ong
, Ingenious Helicopter Project Manager.
“When I first saw it, I immediately thought of Aldrin’s photo of his footprint on the lunar surface. This iconic image of Apollo 11 says, ‘We walked on the surface of the moon’. Wrote in a statement
. “He tells us: ‘We flew to another world.”
Performed skillfully The first running and controlled aircraft on Mars
On Monday, it was followed by Professor The second trip was fraught with danger
Thursday. Photos and videos brought in by helicopter and stubborn rover have captured ingenious historical milestones – the real moment of the Wright Brothers on another planet.
In between trips, Diligence was busy with her MOXIE Create oxygen on the red planet
First another surprising thing.
The abbreviated MOXIE, to test the oxygen resources on Mars, converted the carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere into enough oxygen to hold an astronaut for about 10 minutes.
The ingenuity planned for the third flight on Sunday has returned When the first color photo rises
. It gives us all a picture of what it would be like to fly to Mars.
While Intelligence and MOXIE are now technology shows, both may help people land on the Red Planet on future missions.
Exceeding the force of gravity
More history was made this week when four astronauts from three countries showed up It was launched from the United States to the International Space Station
Friday on board the SpaceX Crew Dragon Capsule. This is the company’s first use of SpaceX’s third manned aircraft and previously launched spacecraft and rocket vehicle.
NASA astronauts Shane Kimberly and Megan MacArthur, French astronaut Thomas Baskett of the European Space Agency and Akihiko Hoshid of Japan.
It adds four crew members to the seven astronauts already at the station, four of whom have arrived Another capsule of the SpaceX Crew Dragon
The space station’s total crew rises to 11, making it one of the largest groups the orbit lab has ever held. But the fun meeting was temporary; The first group is scheduled to return to Earth on April 28.
On a planet at one time
When astronauts View of the Earth from the International Space Station
You often notice the beauty of its appearance – how fragile it is.
This view of the Little Atlas Mountains in Morocco was captured on a NASA Terra satellite with ASTER (Advanced Heat Reflection Emission and Reflection Radiometer via Space).
Victor Clover Jr. completes his third space biography
At the end of February, at that time I was talking about “the importance of human life on this planet”.
“It makes me do everything I can to protect myself,” said one NASA astronaut.
Earth Day, celebrated on Thursday, is a good reminder that we all do our part to protect the only home we have. Some of the changes we made during last year’s epidemics have already benefited the environment, including: On-site shopping
Also reduce travel Reduce food waste
And the flight is low.
Make it a standard practice rather than a temporary habit.
Appeal to all citizens of scholars. Clock “Moon trees
The Royal Astronomical Union and the British Space Agency are looking for them.
The hospitality is as imaginative as the forest of ghost silver trees on the moon, these trees grew from 500 seeds, which traveled to our moon mate, returning to NASA’s Apollo 14 mission.
Seeds traveled including Sycamore Maple, Redwood and Douglas Fir NASA-Astronaut Stuart Rosa
, Former U.S. Forest Service firefighter in his personal belongings to see how they reacted to the space environment.
Back in the ground, seedlings were sprouted and planted around the world by the Forest Service. No formal attempt was made to monitor this, but NASA was after that Keep track of about 60 trees
Steve Miller, vice president of the Royal Astronomical Society, believes some of them are over in the UK and want to know what happened to them, which is why he is targeting the public this week.
After all, humans and animals are not very different from each other.
After Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico in 2017 with devastating consequences, researchers discovered a species of monkey called Rhesus monkeys that live in Cayo Santiago. Get more community
These monkeys competed with each other, were very protective of their food and water, and the researchers found that they actually expanded their social groups, and, according to Maria, were more tolerant of each other.
These interactions were measured in terms of grooming, which is one of the ways monkeys connect. These maintenance networks grew after the hurricane, claiming that the monkeys socialized and befriended their peers – not different from the surrounding areas. People communicate
And expand their community groups.
Lake Mead, the main reservoir of the Colorado River, may be submerged Very low levels
Noise as it was populated in the 1930s New expectations
Released by the U.S. Bureau of Rescue this week.
Reservoirs were a stumbling block during times of scarcity, but the country’s largest lake meet – affected by climate change, overuse and drought, is only 39% full today.
If the water level falls below 1,075 feet on January 1, 2022, deep water cuts will hit Arizona, Nevada and Mexico.
