Rendevous and Docking: a User's Guide for Non Rocket Scientists

By: Terry Burlison

Description: A user's guide for non rocket scientists for rendevous and docking.

Excerpt: Two times each day, your launch site will pass directly under the plane of your target orbit. This is when you must launch! If you delay, you will be launching into a different orbital plane; even if it has the same inclination, it will cross the equator at a different point and create a wedge angle between the orbits. Since the earth rotates 360° in 24 hours, elementary school math tells you that’s a degree every 15 minutes. Very quickly, you’ll be too far out ...

Rediscovering the Solar System

By: Les Johnson

Description: This article takes you back to our solar system. Over the years our solar system has changed. This article gives you up to date imformation about whats happening in our current day solar system.

Excerpt: It is likely that in the 4.5 billion year history of the Solar System, we’ve come close enough to other star systems for us to share members of our Oort Cloud with theirs. Yes, some of the objects now circling our star might actually have originated elsewhere – from around a star now long-gone on its own trek around the Milky Way.

Rediscovering the Universe

By: Les Johnson

Description: Les Johnson takes history back to when the Universe was first created about 14 billion years ago. He explains the theories that scientists have developed about our currently expanding universe.

Excerpt: Since the stars in a galaxy, like our Milky Way Galaxy, orbit the massive black hole at their center in a manner similar to the way the planets in our solar system orbit the Sun, one would expect that the stars nearer the center of the galaxy to orbit faster than those near the edge. Unexpectedly, when astronomers measured their orbital velocities, they weren't moving as expected. In fact, measurements indicate that all of these stars are moving at about the same angular speed.

The Exoplanet Hunters

By: William Ledbetter

Description: This article lists a few discoveries made by scientists about our solar system and the tools used to make these discoveries.

Excerpt: Gravitational Microlensing is also an interesting, if less used way, to find extrasolar planets. When a small star passes in front of a larger star, its gravity works like a magnifying glass, warping and brightening the farther star's light. If a planet is orbiting the nearer star, that planet will also warp the light from the distant planet, causing it to brighten even more and for a measurable period of time

It's Lonely Out There: The Evolutionary Explanation for the Fermi ...

By: John Lambshead

Description: This article touches into the Fermi Paradox. It explains different theories by numerous scientists on the Fermi Paradox and John Lambshead's opinion on the theories.

Excerpt: Another untestable possibility is that aliens are deliberatively quarantining Earth for some social, scientific or alien reason. This is known somewhat unflatteringly as the Zoo Hypothesis. Presumably, some pettifogging minor official in the Galactic Central Bureaucracy has decided that we are not ready, or worthy, or whatever, to join the great Galactic Society.

Evidence of Things Unseen: Why Not Dark Matter?

By: Les Johnson

Description: Les Johnson describes what scientists have discovered about Dark Matter.

Excerpt: Scientists now believe that dark matter accounts for about 84 percent of the matter in the universe. In other words, when you look into the sky and add up the mass of the planets, the Sun, all the stars (many of which, we now know, have planets circling them), the black holes, pulsars and quasars you will have only accounted for about 16% of the mass that should be there – if our understanding of gravity and its effects are correct. Something different (not made...

The Closest Extra-solar Planet to Earth: What's Alpha Centauri Bb ...

By: Les Johnson

Description: Les Johnson talks about the new discovery of a possible earth-like planet that scientists have found in the Alpha Centauri star system.

Excerpt: Alpha Centauri A and B are particularly interesting for astronomers and science fiction writers because they are both very similar to our sun. If Sol, our sun, is “just right” for producing planets with life, then it would make sense that other similar stars could do the same. And since they are close, at least in astronomical distances – I wouldn’t call being ~25,278 billion miles away “close,” – any planets found there would be exciting and hugely significant....

Becoming Martian

By: Terry Burlison

Description: This article presents new scientific findings which, with great hope, will take us steps closer to being able to travel to Mars.

Excerpt: Mars One intends to launch robotic missions beginning in 2016, establishing a communications and life-support infrastructure for the explorers while training private citizens for arrival several years later. The colony will consist of landers launched every two years and configured for different purposes: Life Support Units, Supply Units, and Living Units (with inflatable habitats). As each lander arrives, a rover/trailer, launched in 2018, will transport it to ...

By: S. Hariri; P.-m. Poulain

Description: Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS), Trieste, Italy. Statistics of transit and residence times in the Adriatic Sea surface, a semi-enclosed basin of the Mediterranean, are estimated from drifter data and Lagrangian numerical simulations. The results obtained from the drifters are generally underestimated given their short operating lifetimes (half life of ∼40 days) compared to the transit and residence times. This bias ca...

Turbulence Closure: Turbulence, Waves and the Wave-turbulence Tran...

By: H. Peters; H. Z. Baumert

Description: Freie Universität, Dept. Mathematics and Computer Science, Berlin, and Institute for Applied Marine and Limnic Studies, Hamburg, Germany. A new two-equation, closure-like turbulence model for stably stratified flows is introduced which uses the turbulent kinetic energy (K) and the turbulent enstrophy (Ω) as primary variables. It accounts for mean shear – and internal wave-driven mixing in the two limits of mean shear and no waves and waves but no ...

Description: IMAU, Utrecht University, P.O. Box 80.005, 3508 TA Utrecht, the Netherlands. We provide a time series of Agulhas leakage anomalies over the last twenty years from satellite altimetry. Until now, measuring the interannual variability of Indo-Atlantic exchange has been the major barrier in the investigation of the dynamics and large scale impact of Agulhas leakage. We compute the difference of transport between Agulhas Current and Agulhas Return Curr...
