Search results for dust

Mission scientists at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) are celebrating today, after data from its Hayabusa 2 probe confirmed a successfully touchdown on its target, a kilometer-wide near-Earth asteroid called Ryugu. This in itself is a triumph for the team, but the indications are that the spacecraft's effort to snaffle dust from the surface were also successful, meaning an in
A daring mission to collect dust samples from a kilometer-wide space rock hurtling around the Sun is soon to reach a critical juncture, with mission scientists in Japan preparing to lower their Hayabusa 2 probe to the surface of the asteroid Ryugu. As part of this objective, the team will fire metal bullets into the asteroid's gravely surface, but not without having conducted a dress rehea
The International Leica Society has posted a video of a camera sensor being cleaned at the Leica service centre in the Wetzlar factory in Germany.The video, taken by member Hari Subramanyam on his iPhone, shows the process of checking for dust on the sensor of his M (Typ 240) and then its removal. Well, that was what it was supposed to show, but after 20 minutes and 25 seconds the video finishes
regolith-printing removes the need for multiple trips back to earth when colonizing other planets. The post researchers 3D-print lunar dust into screws and gears for use on the moon appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
ESA researchers are looking at lunar dust as a raw material for making bricks to build habitats for future manned outposts on the Moon. Using "simulants" that mimic the properties of actual Moon dust, the goal is to determine if the gray, fine, rough-edged dust that covers the lunar surface is suitable for making habitats, roads, launch pads and other installations...

The global dust storm that has enveloped Mars since last May is beginning to die down and the question is, what's happened to the Opportunity rover? The solar-powered robotic explorer has been silent since June 10 when dust made the air made so opaque that it blotted out the Sun. Now that energy-giving light is beginning to return, NASA is looking at whether the rover will be able to wake
when the process started, lots of artist's works were still in the building — weiwei bid farewell to them and his office with multiple videos on his instagram page. The post ai weiwei’s beijing studio is turned to dust by chinese authorities appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Photographer Jerry Ferguson was flying in a news helicopter this week to cover seasonal monsoon weather in Phoenix, Arizona, when a massive dust storm showed up on the horizon. As they flew away to outrun the wall of dust, Ferguson managed to capture this photo of it sweeping across the land.Ferguson, who has been shooting professionally for 20+ years and from helicopters for 6 years, says he cap
Things aren't looking good for the Opportunity Mars rover as the global dust storm socking the Red Planet looks set to continue into September. Mission control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California continues a daily listening brief in hopes that the unmanned explorer will radio home, but no response has been heard since June 18. So long as the storm cuts off sunlig
The 2018 monsoon season has arrived in the American Southwest, and on July 9th, photographer Jesse Watson drove out into the desert to capture some time-lapse stills of an approaching storm. While out, he was met by the largest dust storm he had ever seen.Watson managed to capture some breathtaking views of the approaching haboob, which he later turned into the beautiful 30-second video above. is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
