What’s Wrong with Earth’s Magnetic Field? – The South Atlantic Anomaly

Strange things are happening in space but the cause is right below our feet. The earth’s core is changing and the magnetic poles could possibly flip in the not too distant future.
We are just discovering a whole new hidden weather system in the earth molten core that has direct effects on the magnetic field which in turn will have a major effect on our future technological development. But all is not lost, we can work our way out of this but time is of the essence because we don’t know just when things are going to get tricky

How did NASA Film the Apollo and Space Shuttle Launches?

Ever wondered how NASA got those amazing film shots of Apollo and the shuttle launching and the boosters falling away from rockets as they fly into space, then here we find out what cameras and techniques they used.

Cislunar Space Habitation – Paving the Way to Mars

Orbital ATK’s vision for the next step toward human space missions to Mars employs our flight-proven Cygnus advanced maneuvering spacecraft as a human habitat in cislunar space, the region between the Moon and Earth. In the early 2020s we would launch the initial habitat on NASA’s SLS rocket. Featuring a modular design, the habitat would serve both as a destination for crewed missions and as an unmanned testbed to prove-out the technologies needed for long-duration human space missions. The habitat is also envisioned as a base for lunar missions by international partners or commercial ventures. With additional habitation and propulsion modules, the habitat could be outfitted for a Mars pathfinder mission.

Collision That Formed The Moon

Over five decades ago, Apollo astronauts brought back to Earth a wide variety of rocks from the Moon. Analysis of these rocks gave rise to a set of ideas describing the origin of the Moon called the Giant Impact Theory. In the last decade, scientists like Robin Canup have been testing a number of predictions of this theory using a new generation of powerful supercomputers.

In this video, Dr. Canup showcases her recent results. The visualization is a work in progress produced for the upcoming giant screen fulldome film “Birth of Planet,” with funding from the National Science Foundation.
