Japan’s Probe Briefly Landed on an Asteroid to Shoot It with a Bullet

Japan’s Hayabusa2 probe successfully landed on the Ryugu asteroid that’s 300 million km away, to collect samples that could point to the origin of  the solar system and life itself.

The probe didn’t stay long. After touchdown, it fired a special bullet into the asteroid’s surface in order to gather the scattered dust samples for analysis back on Earth. Hayabusa2 then returned to its holding position in space, according to Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) officials via AFP.

AN ASTRONAUT ACCIDENTALLY DIALED 911 IN SPACE

Space Butt-Dial

We’ve all been butt-dialed. But have you ever considered what would happen if you punched in the wrong number while orbiting around Earth? Houston, we’ve got a problem.

In a new radio interview with Dutch public broadcaster Nederlandse Omroep Stichting, Netherlands astronaut André Kuipers recalled how he accidentally ended up calling American emergency services while on board the International Space Station (ISS).

Intergalactic Operator Please

Kuipers explained that phone calls from the ISS are routed through NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

“If you’re in space, it’s like you’re making a call via Houston, first you dial the 9 for an outside line, and then 011 for an international line,” Kuipers tells NOS, according to Google Translate. “I made a mistake. The next day I received an email message: did you call 911?”

I was fortunate enough to by chance, catch something on NatGeo a few nights ago about the Parker Solar Probe......fantastic. I don't watch TV, and yet I came across this programme in the most random fashion.
 
It puts things into perspective somewhat - whilst we squabble over diversity, equity, caravans, who said what to whom and when, and who kicked sand in who's face and why.....this little spaceship is going where nobody and nothing has gone before....what clever people we can be when we want to be.
 
Cook, Diaz, Columbus and those of their like who, from the heaving decks of little wooden sailing ships, drew the original maps that copies of opened our Earth for exploration, used the same sun to warm their chilled bones and dry their damp clothes, our own star that today we are peeping at from behind a 21st Century protective heat shield - 1300 degrees Celsius on one side, 30 degrees Celsius on the other.
 
It's fascinating stuff that evokes good feelings about the human race.
 
Go, little satellite girl, go.......tell us what you see...

Currently scheduled for Saturday - launch of Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Nov. 17, 2018. The rocket will launch a Cygnus spacecraft carrying cargo to the International Space Station — the launch, at 4:01 a.m. EST (0901 GMT), will be visible across much of the U.S. East Coast.

Rocket Lab delivers seven payloads to orbit, plans next launch in December

Rocket Lab’s Electron booster launched six small satellites and a drag sail demonstrator to orbit Sunday from New Zealand, a success on the company’s first commercial mission that officials said should pave the way for a launch carrying NASA CubeSats next month and up to 16 flights of the light-class rocket next year.


 

this is probably/potentially a bigger deal than most people think

big step forward in access and cost

deploying satellites just got much more real

Should be in "things you thought today" but since the Coast Guard is now part of DHS and not DoD, did they move out of the Pentagon? Were they ever there? Was there an entire facet of the Pentagon that's been sitting empty? It only makes sense to create a new branch of the armed services because otherwise sooner or later they'd have to remodel the Pentagon into the Square.
