As a child, I always loved the movie Apollo 13. I recently read the book "Apollo 13" (previously entitled "Lost Moon") written by the commander of the mission, Jim Lovell. At the very end of the book, it said that the Odyssey Command Module was on display in Hutchinson, KS; only an hour away from me! So I decided to venture out to Hutch and see the famed "successful failure". I couldn't believe that after all these years, I finally have gotten to see something that I have been obsessed with since a kid! #space#apollo13
El telescopio hubble celebra 28 años con fotografía de la nebulosa de la Laguna.
En el centro de la foto, que celebra el 28 aniversario del observatorio de la órbita de la Tierra, se observa una estrella 200 mil veces más brillantes que nuestro sol.#PuntoMedio
LIFTOFF! Our Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) launched at 6:51 p.m. EDT from Space Launch Complex 40 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida to search for unknown worlds beyond our solar system.
When a planet crosses in front of the star it’s orbiting, that event is called a transit – and the telltale sign of a transit is a drop in the brightness of that star’s light. TESS is heading into high Earth orbit, where it will rely on the transit method to locate planets that are outside our solar system, but close enough to study with ground-based telescopes. Since its launch in 2009, our Kepler space telescope has discovered nearly 2,700 of these worlds orbiting other stars known as “exoplanets” using the transit method. Now Kepler, the past master of transits, is passing the torch of discovery to TESS whose adventure is just beginning... Credit: NASA
I had the incredible honor to work on visuals for #ted2018 ! We had an amazing team to bring the frames to life on the big screen.
