The largest of the volcanoes in the Tharsis Montes region, as well as all known volcanoes in the solar system, is Olympus Mons. Olympus Mons is a shield volcano 624 km (374 mi) in diameter (approximately the same size as the state of Arizona), 25 km (16 mi) high, and is rimmed by a 6 km (4 mi) high scarp. A caldera 80 km (50 mi) wide is located at the summit of Olympus Mons. To compare, the largest volcano on Earth is Mauna Loa. Mauna Loa is a shield volcano 10 km (6.3 mi) high and 120 km (75 mi) across. The volume of Olympus Mons is about 100 times larger than that of Mauna Loa. In fact, the entire chain of Hawaiian islands (from Kauai to Hawaii) would fit inside Olympus Mons! #mars #nasa #spacex #marsfacts #jpl #astronomy #volcano #marsgeneration #olympusmons

In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit. Such objects are sometimes called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as Earth's Moon. In 1957 the Soviet Union launched the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1. Since then, about 6,600 satellites from more than 40 countries have been launched. According to a 2013 estimate, 3,600 remained in orbit. Of those, about 1,000 were operational; while the rest have lived out their useful lives and become space debris. Approximately 500 operational satellites are in low-Earth orbit, 50 are in medium-Earth orbit (at 20,000 km), and the rest are in geostationary orbit (at 36,000 km). A few large satellites have been launched in parts and assembled in orbit. Over a dozen space probes have been placed into orbit around other bodies and become artificial satellites to the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, a few asteroids, a comet and the Sun. Satellites are used for many purposes. Common types include military and civilian Earth observation satellites, communications satellites, navigation satellites, weather satellites, and space telescopes. Space stations and human spacecraft in orbit are also satellites. Satellite orbits vary greatly, depending on the purpose of the satellite, and are classified in a number of ways. Well-known (overlapping) classes include low Earth orbit, polar orbit, and geostationary orbit. Satellites are usually semi-independent computer-controlled systems. Satellite subsystems attend many tasks, such as power generation, thermal control, telemetry, attitude control and orbit control. #science #satellite #tech #spacemission #spaceexploration #orbit #earth #planet #spaceflight #rockets #discovery #space #universe #astronomy #galaxy #spacecraft #marsgeneration #geology #solarsystem #telescope #NASA #ESA #CSA #SLS #ISS #JPL #MSL #futurism #cosmic #cosmos

A rocket engine is a type of jet engine that uses only stored rocket propellant mass for forming its high-speed propulsive jet. Rocket engines are reaction engines, obtaining thrust in accordance with Newton's third law. Most rocket engines are internal combustion engines, although non-combusting forms (such as cold gas thrusters) also exist. Vehicles propelled by rocket engines are commonly called rockets. Since they need no external material to form their jet, rocket engines can perform in a vacuum and thus can be used to propel spacecraft and ballistic missiles. Compared to other types of jet engines, rocket engines are by far the lightest, and have the highest thrust, but are the least propellant-efficient (they have the lowest specific impulse). The ideal exhaust is hydrogen, the lightest of all gases, but chemical rockets produce a mix of heavier species, reducing the exhaust velocity. Rocket engines become more efficient at high velocities, due to greater propulsive efficiency and the Oberth effect. Since they do not require an atmosphere, they are well suited for uses at very high altitudes and in space. #space #rocket #engine #booster #tech #science #spacemission #spaceexploration #discovery #marscolonization #spacecraft #marsgeneration #planet #solarsystem #astronomy #galaxy #universe #telescope #NASA #ESA #CSA #SLS #ISS #MRO #JPL #MSL #futurism #cosmic #cosmos

Sunrise on Mars: Our Opportunity rover was built to last 90 sols, or Martian days. The intrepid rover has survived to see 5,000 sols of exploration and counting. A sol lasts about 40 minutes longer than an Earth day. Here we see sunrise as a new day breaks over the Red Planet on sol 4,999, Feb. 15, 2018. This view looking across Endeavour Crater was taken with Opportunity’s Panoramic Camera (Pancam), yielding this processed, approximately true-color scene. This view combines three separate exposures taken and was processed to correct for some of the oversaturation and glare, though it still includes some artifacts from pointing a camera with a dusty lens at the Sun. Opportunity has driven a little over 28.02 miles (45.1 km) since it landed in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars in January 2004.

It is well known that Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) incorporates different systems like GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and some other. Historically driven by military needs these global systems become the essential and not always perceived part of life for millions of ordinary people. Few of us muse about the way GNSS operates while planning a route to the office in an attempt to avoid the traffic nightmare of big cities or the countryside obscurity. How many clever space machines work on the orbit to make our lives safer? Obviously, the keystone of GNSS is Global Positioning System (GPS). The older one, it is the most extensive and accurate navigation system with the first satellite launched in 1974. The efficiency of GPS was so stunning that US government was forced to make artificial navigation errors to save their handicap in a military sphere. But that pseudo-obstacles were rejected in 2000 by the Bill Clinton’s decree. Originally GPS architecture implied the use of 24 satellites working on their orbits. However, today it uses the 32-slot arrangement for better connection quality with 31 operational and one reserve satellites. That makes the system more reliable and improves its accuracy. Every satellite orbits the Earth twice a day and provides the signal worldwide.

Visit the link to watch JPL Technologist Troy Lee Hudson dig deep into #NASAInSight, our next mission to #Mars: https://go.nasa.gov/2HIjWmf . InSight, scheduled to launch in May, 2018, will be the first @NASA mission to observe the deep interior of Mars and learn about the history and evolution of rocky planets. Troy’s talk also shows instruments InSight will bring to the Red Planet, including the first seismometer ever taken to the surface of another planet. . . #NASA #JPL #NASAJPL #InSight #spacenews #space #video #spacecraft #technology #omgrobots #engineering #robotics

#FastRepost from @nasa_marshall by @fastrepost_app ••• This view of Saturn looks toward the planet's night side, lit by sunlight reflected from the rings. A mosaic of some of the very last images captured by Cassini’s cameras, it shows the location where the spacecraft would enter the planet's atmosphere hours later. The oval marks the entry site. While this area was on the night side of the planet at the time, it would rotate into daylight by the time Cassini made its final dive into Saturn's upper atmosphere, ending its remarkable 13-year exploration of Saturn.

#OTD On this day: February 24, 2011... I saw the last flight of NASA's Space Shuttle Discovery STS-133 from Cape Canaveral, FL. My first and only Space Shuttle launch in person, and wow was it amazing! . This is an animation of my photo still frames from that day, 300mm lens, cropped/aligned. . From NASA: "STS-133 Commander Steve Lindsey, Pilot Eric Boe and Mission Specialists Alvin Drew, Steve Bowen, Michael Barratt and Nicole Stott delivered a new module and an external stowage platform to the International Space Station as well as equipment and supplies. During space shuttle Discovery’s almost nine days at the station, Bowen and Drew performed two spacewalks for maintenance work and installation of new components. . Discovery’s visit to the station was extended by two days so its crew could help outfit the Permanent Multipurpose Module Leonardo that it delivered. Leonardo had visited the station seven times before as a cargo carrier before being refurbished to serve as a permanent 2,472-cubic-foot addition to the orbiting laboratory. Among the 6,000 pounds of Leonardo cargo was Robonaut 2, a human upper torso-like robot that could be a precursor of devices to help during spacewalks. About 2,000 pounds of additional cargo for the station was carried on the shuttle’s middeck. . This was the 35th shuttle mission to the station and the final flight of Discovery." .
