Direct to you from Amberwood lane in Colorado Springs its “Space Weather News” with Ben Davidson. NASA will soon be hosting it’s own Space Weather Forecasts soon. People who have been part of Ben’s group will be involved.
Far away in the Ursa Major constellation is a swirling galaxy that would not look out of place on a coffee made by a starry-eyed barista. NGC 3895 is a barred spiral galaxy that was first spotted by William Herschel in 1790 and was later observed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble’s orbit high above the Earth’s distorting atmosphere allows astronomers to make the very high resolution observations that are essential to opening new windows on planets, stars and galaxies — such as this beautiful view of NGC 3895. The telescope is positioned approximately 570 km above the ground, where it whirls around Earth at 28 000 kilometres per hour and takes 96 minutes to complete one orbit.
Where are the stars? Not single bright star showing from the galaxy itself.
Just a few piercing the creamy mixture from behind it appears.
Official NASA TV Boeing Starliner Orbital Flight Test Landing.
The actual space to earth portion runs from the 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes mark. The full video including the activity after landing runs 2 hours 46 minutes. The full test was 49 hours 21 minutes due to faulty software causing a incorrect initial orbit during the launch. It was placed in a stable orbit until they could execute the landing.
NASA had a glitch in their test flight today.
You can watch how it panned out around the one hour forty minute mark in this recording, orbital insertion burn did not fire.
