If this suggestion were to be determined robust, and there is a real evolutionary difference between z 0 and z 0.7 spirals, then it would have significance in the astrophysics of disk formation. However, as Bunker et al. (2000) point out, the effects of large morphological -corrections (viewing the nearby and distant spirals at differing rest-frame wavelengths) make the case for physical evolution much more marginal. Bars are usually populated by an older, cool stellar population, as shown in Fig. 9, and thus are prominent at longer (IR) wavelengths. But at z 0.7, say, we often observe the rest ultraviolet where the old stars can be FIGURE 9 The nearby spiral NGC 7424, taken with VIMOS VLT at the European Southern Observatory. Note the prominent bar the redder colors of the bar (see color section) indicates an older population of stars populate the bar. Such features are difficult to detect at high redshift because our optical image then views the rest UV, and old stars emit very...
With his father's help, Clyde built a storage and storm cellar that could also provide the stable air needed for telescope-mirror testing. He then made a fine 7-inch reflector and sent it to his Uncle Lee. His uncle paid him, and Clyde plunged the money into a 9-inch mirror of his own. His days belonged to farmwork, but his nights were devoted to observing the skies and carefully sketching the planets. He completed his excellent new telescope in time to enjoy the 1928 close passage of the Earth by Mars.
We cannot imagine space flights that do not start from a tower of flame at a launch pad. We have become familiar with the sights of Kennedy Space Center with its line of gantries marching along the Atlantic Ocean coastline at Cape Canaveral. But this is about to change. In 2004, the only astronauts to enter space from the United States departed from Mojave Spaceport. Mojave is now managed by the American Air Force. It has no gantries, no high-energy LOX and propellant bunkers, or block
A strange accident punctuated the last day of the test. Early on 25 March, Graydon Corn's propellants crew started the chill-down of the LOX pumping system. The operation required a 760-liter-per-minute flow to the replenishing pumps (which could handle five times that rate) and a lesser amount through a bleed line that had been added to the LOX system after the 500-F spill in August 1966. see chapter 159 During the 40 minutes of precooling, the launch team emptied 39,000 liters of LOX into a drainage ditch outside the perimeter fence. Normally ocean breezes dissipated the oxygen fog. On the morning of the 25th, however, there was no wind and a pronounced temperature inversion. A dense fog built up in the drainage ditch at a culvert where the road to the slide wire bunker crossed the ditch, the invisible oxygen overflowed onto the bank. At 6 00 a.m. the closeout crew and safety personnel left the LOX storage area. First-stage loading could begin after a three-minute chill-down of the...
This moment, which relived the experiences of two previous Shuttle crews in 1984 and 1985, was one of the most dangerous and unwanted episodes in the entire programme. With unburnt hydrogen possibly hanging underneath the still-hot engines, the risk of an explosion or fire was very real. Although the astronauts had been trained to escape from such an on-the-pad abort and slide to a fortified bunker, the danger of them running through invisible hydrogen flames prompted NASA to keep them in the relative safety of Columbia's cockpit.
The fueling of the launch vehicle was completed more than three hours before liftoff. Then the closeout crew of six men under the direction of Gunter Wendt and Spacecraft Test Conductor Clarence Chauvin returned to the pad.41 They opened the hatch and made final cabin preparations. The backup command pilot, Fred Haise, Jr., entered the spacecraft at 3 hours and 10 minutes before liftoff. With the assistance of Haise and a suit technician, Neil Armstrong entered Apollo at 6 54 a.m. Michael Collins joined him five minutes later in the right couch, and Edwin Aldrin climbed into the center seat. The closeout crew shut the side hatch, pressurized the cabin to check for leaks, and purged it. At two hours before liftoff Houston participated in a final checkout of the spacecraft systems. At one hour before liftoff, the closeout crew left the pad. Almost a kilometer to the west, protected by a sand bunker, 14 rescue personnel stood watch. Equipped with armored personnel carriers and wearing...
About 75 miles (120 km) from Stalingrad. Grottrup's wife joined him in October and wrote about the countdown of the first V-2 R-1 launch on October 30, 1947, . . . zero minus 5 . . . Suddenly the launching platform collapses sideways and with it the fully loaded rocket. One leg of the platform has given way. . . . We make a dash for the bunker, while workmen run toward the rocket and, with absolutely no sign of fear, winch the whole thing back into position, platform, rocket and all, and prop it up with girders. There's Russia for you The countdown resumed, and the rocket launched successfully. Sergei Korolev hugged Grottrup. About 20 V-2s were launched from Kapustin Yar by December 1947. The launchings were done by alternating German and Russian teams. The Russian team was headed by L. A. Voskresensky (1913-65), who became Korolev's deputy as space-vehicle-systems designer.
These surface conditions were not healthy for children or other living things. For this reason, we think that life may have originated deep underground, or at the bottom of the oceans, places that provided natural fallout shelter from the cosmic bombs still wreaking havoc at the surface. A currently popular location for life's origins is at hydrothermal submarine vents on the ocean floor. Plenty of chemical energy was supplied by the hot, mineral-rich waters pouring out of these vents, and the deep ocean was relatively immune to the extreme environmental hazards plaguing the surface at the time when life seems to have gotten its start. As the impact storm raged above, the first glimmerings of life on Earth may have been safe and warm below the storm in an octopus's garden beneath the waves.*
This section provides a description of a semi-autonomous excavating digging soil-manipulating robot for use on the Moon. One of the enabling technology tasks identified earlier is the capability to robotically prepare a base campsite on the lunar surface. Robotic site preparation may entail leveling the ground for habitat emplacement, trenching to bury cables, and excavating to create emergency radiation-storm shelters.
Once the spacecraft leaves Earth orbit and the shelter of Earth's magnetic field, we have another situation entirely. Future trips to other planets will involve astronauts traversing large distances, taking hundreds of days to reach their destination. In these cases, the crew is at the mercy of direct particle radiation from the Sun. At times of solar maximum, solar storms can occur that fling huge quantities of particle radiation across the solar system. If the spacecraft happens to be in the path of one of these outbursts, the level of radiation can be potentially lethal for an unprotected crew. Thus the problem of providing adequate radiation protection would appear to be a potential roadblock for future manned flights to the planets. However, there is a cost-effective two-part solution. First, there must be an effective early warning system that monitors the Sun's output to detect the solar storms, probably using a system of spacecraft sensors in orbit around the Sun. A storm...
On the morning of 12 April, Korolev personally woke his cosmonauts at 5 30am. After a final series of medical checks, both astronauts were suited up, and Titov had to suffer the agony of riding with Gagarin in the bus to the launch site, then waiting on standby as his comrade was secured inside the Vostok capsule. Only then was Titov taken to an observation bunker to remove his spacesuit.
The success was particularly welcome to the Kennedy administration, coming at a time of high tension between the United States and the Soviet Union. The raising of the Berlin Wall had stunned the Western world in August 1961. President Kennedy had responded with a partial mobilization of U.S. reserve forces, but most political analysts considered the events a Russian victory. In late October, as the Soviet Union prepared to test a 50-megaton H-bomb, the President had proposed a massive fallout shelter program. On the day of the SA-1 launch, Russian tanks moved into East Berlin for the first time in several years.
We used the images from the Hubble Ultra Deep Field to identify objects likely to be galaxies 95 per cent of the way across the observable Universe, said Andrew Bunker of the University of Exeter, England. These images are our most sensitive picture of the Universe so far, and they enabled us to discover the faintest objects yet.
Safety requires minimizing the biomedical hazards of spaceflight. Most likely, we can keep acceleration within acceptable limits. At least at first, most tourists will not proceed to the Van Allen belts, which contain trapped radiation, so in the absence of major solar flares, radiation is unlikely to be much of a problem. On the basis of medical considerations alone, under some conditions the crewmembers should be given greater protection against radiation than tourists need be given. In the case of a minor solar storm, for example, it may be the crew rather than the passengers who should crowd into the safe haven, because it is the crew, with their months or years in space, who run the risk of receiving the highest cumulative doses of radiation. No matter how practical this might be, though, passengers would find it unacceptable, so it will be necessary to include a storm shelter that can accommodate everyone.
Solar astronomers therefore keep careful watch over the Sun during space missions, to warn of possible activity occurring at just the wrong place or time. Flight controllers can then postpone space walks during solar storms, keeping astronauts within the heavily shielded recesses of a satellite or space station, ttey would also be told to curtail any strolls on the Moon or Mars, instead moving inside underground storm shelters.
