2014-02-12 15:57:52

[ Watch the Video: Rotating Globe of Ganymede Geology ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists, led by Geoffrey Collins, of Wheaton College, have produced the first global geological map of Jupiter’s largest moon. The map, now published by the USGS as a global map, combines images of Ganymede taken by NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft and Galileo orbiter. It is the first global, geologic map of Jupiter’s seventh moon, providing the geologic character of...

Galileo Working Well

[ Watch The Video: Galileo Validated in Orbit VNR ] ESA The in-orbit validation of Galileo has been achieved: Europe now has the operational nucleus of its own satellite navigation constellation in place – the world’s first civil-owned and operated satnav system. In 2011 and 2012 the first four satellites were launched into orbit. Four is the minimum number needed to perform navigation fixes. In the following year, these satellites were combined with a growing global ground...

Scientists have studied a visual illusion first discovered by Galileo Galilei, and found that it occurs because of the surprising way our eyes see lightness and darkness in the world. Their results advance our understanding of how our brains are wired for seeing white versus black objects. The work was done by Jens Kremkow and collaborators in the laboratories of Jose Manuel Alonso and Qasim Zaidi at the State University of New York College of Optometry. It will be published on February 10 of...

Galileo Satellites Achieve First Airborne Tracking
2013-12-12 10:18:44

ESA ESA’s Galileo satellites have achieved their very first aerial fix of longitude, latitude and altitude, enabling the inflight tracking of a test aircraft. ESA’s four Galileo satellites in orbit have supported months of positioning tests on the ground across Europe since the very first fix back in March. Now the first aerial tracking using Galileo has taken place, marking the first time ever that Europe has been able to determine the position of an aircraft using only its own...

Clay Minerals Found On Europa
2013-12-11 15:38:16

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Jupiter’s icy moon Europa appears to have clay-type minerals on its surface, according to new data from NASA’s Galileo mission. Scientists at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco say they have identified clay-like minerals on Europa for the first time. This finding could also imply that Europa carries organic materials. "Organic materials, which are important building blocks for life, are often found in comets...

Pioneer Jupiter 40th anniversary

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Forty years ago, man’s perspective of what blanketed the night sky grew even more dense as Pioneer 10 made its closest approach to Jupiter. On December 4, 1973, NASA’s Pioneer 10 spacecraft sent back images of Jupiter as it passed by, showing images of the darkest and brightest sides of the planet. “The most dramatic moment was after closest approach and after the spacecraft was hidden behind Jupiter. Here, images gradually...

Europa's Subsurface Ocean Currents And Patterns Act As A Heat Transfer
2013-12-04 04:25:36

[ Watch the Video: Saturn's Moon Europa Has A Dynamic Subsurface Ocean ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geophysics (UTIG), the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research have revealed that the subsurface ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa might have deep currents and circulation patterns. These currents and patterns have heat and energy transfers capable of...

Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center on October 18, 1989 at 12:53 PM EDT and landed at Edwards Air Force Base on October 23 at 9:33 AM EDT. The shuttle orbited 79 times at an altitude of 185 nautical miles at an inclination of 34.3 degrees and travelled 2 million miles.  The mission lasted 4 days, 23 hours, 39 minutes, and 21 seconds. The purpose of the mission was to launch the Galileo probe to Jupiter. The Galileo/Jupiter spacecraft and attached Inertial Upper Stage (IUS), was...

Galileo Probe -- The Galileo probe was an unmanned probe sent by NASA to study the planet Jupiter and its moons. Named after the astronomer Galileo Galilei, it was launched on October 18 1989 by the Space Shuttle Atlantis and arrived at Jupiter on December 7 1995. Galileo's launch had been significantly delayed by the hiatus in Space Shuttle launches that occurred after the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and new safety protocols that were implemented as a result forced Galileo to use...

Jupiter's Moon Europa -- Europa is a puzzle. The sixth largest moon in our Solar System, Europa confounds and intrigues scientists. Few bodies in the Solar System have attracted as much scientific attention as this moon of Jupiter because of its possible subsurface ocean of water. The more we learn about this icy moon, the more questions we have. Because the nature of science is to ask questions, we cannot resist the mystery of Europa and its potential for possessing an ocean. Early...

Jupiter's Moon Io -- Looking like a giant pizza covered with melted cheese and splotches of tomato and ripe olives, Io is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Volcanic plumes rise 300 kilometers (190 miles) above the surface, with material spewing out at nearly half the required escape velocity. A bit larger than Earth's moon, Io is the third largest of Jupiter's moons, and the fifth one in distance from the planet. Although Io always points the same side toward...

Jupiter's Moon Amalthea -- Amalthea [am-al-THEE-uh] is one of Jupiter's smaller moons. It was named after the nymph who nursed the infant Jupiter with goats milk. It was discovered in 1892 by the American astronomer Edward Emerson Barnard while making observations from the Lick Observatory with a 36 inch (91 centimeter) refractory telescope. Amalthea was the last moon in the solar system to be discovered through direct visual observation. It was also the first moon of Jupiter to be...
