  This decade marked the final half of the Cassini spacecraft's year mission at Saturn, during which it made countless discoveries about the planet, its rings and its fascinating of the most exciting findings highlighted new frontiers in our search for life beyond Earth. Cassini spotted geysers erupting from cracks in the icy shell of Saturn's moon . Mission to Planet Earth. The expertise in using spacecraft to carry specialized instruments into orbit or beyond to conduct remote sensing and data gathering that help look beyond the Earth gives NASA the unique capability to conduct world-class work in the scientific research portion of USGCRP. NASA's aircraft and balloon expertise also. | + Join mailing list Dec. 11, NASA's fleet of THEMIS spacecraft, launched less than 8 months ago, has made three important discoveries about spectacular eruptions of Northern Lights called "substorms" and the source of their power. The discoveries include giant magnetic ropes that connect Earth's upper atmosphere to the Sun and explosions in the outskirts of Earth's . The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal is a record of the lunar surface operations conducted by the six pairs of astronauts who landed on the Moon from through The Journal is edited by Eric M. Jones and Ken Glover and is intended as a resource for anyone wanting to know what happened during the missions and why.

In the s, decades after their prime mission ended, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 made history by becoming the first spacecraft to enter interstellar space – the region beyond the influence of solar wind from our Sun. Crewed spacecraft are designed to support human life for the human spaceflight portion of the mission. Spacecraft for human spaceflight must have a human-rating certification as fit for purpose. Crewed spacecraft must be pressurised, usually between mbar and 1 bar (1 atmosphere); temperature regulated, usually °C; and have a breathable atmosphere, i.e. . Altitudes between 40 and km are not accessible for conventional aircraft and spacecraft for long-term duration. In particular the region around km, the upper mesosphere and lower thermo-sphere (UMLT), is of great interest to scientists and engineers since it forms the transition from earth to space.

Earth-resources mapping satellite launched by France; highest-resolution civilian remote-sensing satellite the X returned information that was of great value in the design of both spacecraft and supersonic aircraft. It reached an altitude of 67 miles ( kilometers) and a speed of more than 4, miles (7, kilometers) per hour. Environmental Monitoring from Spacecraft Data R. H. Rogers C. L. Wilson L. E. Reed N. J.

NASA's Earth Resources Survey Aircraft Project had its roots in aerial reconnaissance and photogrammetry-mapmaking from aerial photographs - used extensively since World War I. NASA managers recognized that aircraft could also serve as less expensive testbeds for radar and earth observation instruments being designed for spacecraft.

A great introductory book to creation It is Dr Richter’s own story, the path God led him on to put the pieces of earth’s prime mission together. Spacecraft Earth is loaded with fascinating evidence for design that climaxes in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Along the way, the book renders Darwinian evolution, naturalistic origin of life and big. JSC JSC INTERNAL NOTE. The intent of this document is to provide a history of Earth observations from manned and selected unmanned Earth-orbiting spacecraft, and to serve as a reference for planning future observations of our planet from space by man.

Earth Resource Programs Many NASA and industry-sponsored studies during the past several years have concluded that both synoptic and continuous remote sensing of the earth environment from orbital spacecraft offer unique advantages over.

The final four-year tour has yet to be finalized and could look different from this one. Landsat 1 (LS-1), formerly named ERTS-A and ERTS-1, was the first satellite of the United States' Landsat was a modified version of the Nimbus 4 meteorological satellite and was launched on Jby a Delta rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The near-polar orbiting spacecraft served as a stabilized, Earth-oriented platform Operator: NASA. Professor Trantham has served as both an educator and administrator in the areas of biological sciences and psychology. He authored the curriculum framework for the Marine Environmental Technology Program at Florida Keys Community College and served as director of the program since it was approved by the state of : LANDSAT AND THE RISE OF EARTH RESOURCES MONITORING.

Disagreements among users made it difficult to design the satellite and resulted in only weak support from users when funding decisions were made. 4 These factors, plus a lack of strong leadership in the project after its earliest years, left it caught in limbo without sufficient funding to realize the potential it had.

Description When the first U.S. satellite was launched in Januarythere were many skeptics as to the practical value of the space program. On April 1,in a little over two years, the world's first Earth observation satellite-TIROS-was successfully orbited, demonstrating for the first time the potential of remote sensing from space.

Updated: Oct. 19, This free NASA e-Book celebrates Saturn as seen through the eyes of the Cassini spacecraft. The Cassini-Huygens mission has revolutionized our knowledge of the Saturn system and revealed surprising places in the solar system where life could potentially gain a foothold—bodies we call ocean worlds.

Monitoring technologies are employed to assure that the chemical and microbial content of the air and water environment of the astronaut crew habitat falls within acceptable limits, and that the chemical or biological life support system is functioning properly. The sensors may also provide data to automated control systems.

In the recent era, many satellites probing the Earth's space environment were launched as coordinated groups, such as the 4 spacecraft of the European "Cluster II" mission () and the more recent "Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS)" ().

Other "teamed" missions have included ISEE, DE (Dynamics Explorer) and Themis. CCSDS Overview CCSDS = The Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems For international collaboration in spaceflight, the most critical enabling technology is communications and data systems.

The domain of CCSDS is interoperability for comm/data systems Interoperability translates to: Operations --flexibility, capability and access to additional resources.

Monitoring Air Pollution When climatologists need more accurate data and weather forecasters want to predict days in advance, we’re their go-to partner.

Flying on our spacecraft, instruments like TEMPO, GMI and CALIPSO gather extremely accurate data on pollution, precipitation and the impacts of clouds and aerosols on Earth’s climate.

Aircraft and Spacecraft (in Russian, letatel’nyi apparat), vehicles used for controlled flight within the atmosphere of a planet or in outer space.

The flight of such vehicles is motion over the solid or liquid surface of a planet or in interplanetary space. Aircraft are used to transport passengers or freight, for agricultural and construction work.
