Space Shuttle Atlantis Takes Off Friday – List of Crew And Mission Specialists – To Replace Solar Arrays

(Best Syndication) The Space Shuttle Atlantis was launched form NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at 7:38 p.m. EDT Friday after a three-month delay caused by hail damage and repairs to the external fuel tank. The seven member crew of STS-117 will deliver and install the 17.5 ton S3/S4 truss segments to the International Space Station.

Similar to construction work conducted on the two previous shuttle missions, the crew will be deploying a new set of solar arrays and will be retracting the existing arrays. The space agency says when unfolded, the 240-foot arrays will provide additional power to the station in preparation for the arrival of new science modules from the European and Japanese space agencies.

Astronomy - 28 more Exoplanets discovered outside our Solar System

[Best Syndication] Astronomers have found 28 new planets located outside of our solar system over the last year. The findings were presented at this Monday at the American Astronomical Society in Honolulu, Hawaii by University of California, Berkeley, post-doctoral fellow Jason T. Wright and newly minted Ph.D. John Asher Johnson.

There were a total of 37 new objects found over the last year. Seven of these findings turned out to be brown dwarfs which are stars that failed. There were two that could be brown dwarfs or planets. These failed stars are not small and can be much larger than Jupiter in size.

The astronomers are finding that there are many planets that could be suitable for life. The planets are discovered because of a slight wobble in the light wavelength that occurs when it orbits a star.

Yet Another Creationist Misrepresentation of Evolution

Yet Another Creationist Misrepresentation of Evolution

When creationists continue to reiterate that evolution is not happening, they are perpetuating some serious misunderstandings of the science involved. Either they honestly do not understand how these things work, or they are knowingly misrepresenting them for the laymen, and I don’t know which is worse.

The arguments against evolution – obviously based on the faith that Genesis must be true, lest the Bible loses all relevance – are foolish inasmuch as they have been stated many times, but have all been countered by scientists. Some people of faith purposely elect to disregard these arguments, but hopefully other people are more willing to hear what the true workings of evolution are, as much as we know them at this time.

Dark Matter Ring Image – NASA Astronomers Say Ghostly Ring Is Evidence That Structure Of Dark Matter Different From Gas

(Best Syndication) Astronomers say that most of the universe is made up of dark matter, which acts like a glue that holds the galaxies together. On Tuesday NASA scientists revealed an image of a “ghostly ring” taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The ring is apparently composed of dark matter.

The NASA astronomers got their first-hand view of how dark matter behaves during a titanic collision between two galaxy clusters. The ghostly ring is similar to the ripple effect caused by dropping a rock into a pool of water. The ring can be seen in the “blue map” of the cluster’s dark matter distribution, which is superimposed on an image of the cluster.

NASA study Predicts Extreme Summer Heat in the US by 2080

NASA scientists believe that greenhouse gases will cause summer temperatures in the eastern United States to increase by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit by 2080.

Think about this, the study predicts temperatures to be between 100 -110 degrees Fahrenheit in Chicago, Washington, and Atlanta during the peak summer months of July and August by 2080.

"There is the potential for extremely hot summertime temperatures in the future, especially during summers with less-than-average frequent rainfall," said lead author Barry Lynn of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia University, New York.
