Space Sunday: Cassini’s Grand Finale begins; Voyager’s Grand Tour remembered

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit Space Sunday: Cassini’s Grand Finale begins; Voyager’s Grand Tour remembered for original post.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft performed what is effectively its last close flyby of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, marking a final opportunity for the mission to make up-close observations of the lakes and seas of liquid hydrocarbons that spread across the moon’s northern polar region and for the probe to use its […]

Space the Final Frontier, or Not

By Nalates Urriah – Nalates’ Things & Stuff. Visit Space the Final Frontier, or Not for original post.

Do you know anything about the United Nations Outer Space Treaty, passed in 1967? Did you know it forbids the claiming of territory beyond Earth? Even if you get there, spending billions, you cannot own the land/asteroid. Cutting off any assurance you can recover your costs or gain any reward. That relegates space exploration to governments … Continue reading

Space Sunday: hydrogen, imaging a black hole, and exoplanet hunting

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit Space Sunday: hydrogen, imaging a black hole, and exoplanet hunting for original post.

I’ve written a lot of late about Saturn’s icy moon, Enceladus. Covered by an icy crust, there is a good chance this distant moon harbours a liquid water ocean beneath that ice. NASA’s Cassini mission has imaged geyser plumes erupting through the ice, and the speculation is that if Enceladus does have an ocean beneath […]


Space Sunday: of atmospheres, reusable rockets and Trojans

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit Space Sunday: of atmospheres, reusable rockets and Trojans for original post.

Back in February 2017, I covered the news about seven Earth-sized planets found in orbit around the super-cool red dwarf star TRAPPIST-1, roughly 40 light years away (see here and here for more). While three of the planets lie within their parent star’s “habitable zone”, and so might have both an atmosphere and liquid water […]

Space Sunday: Flying over Mars, JUICE for Jupiter and black holes

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit Space Sunday: Flying over Mars, JUICE for Jupiter and black holes for original post.

Ever wondered what it would be like to actually fly over Mars? I have – although I admit, I’m utterly entranced by that red world and the potentials it presents. Finnish film-maker Jan Fröjdman has as well – only he’s taken the idea a step further and produced a remarkable video,  A Fictive Flight Above […]

Fixing Up My Space

I have a plot  to live on, its a pretty good size. I am lucky to have it for free as my mate Zen (guest blogger on here) cleared the space as soon as I returned to SL. The sim we share is magical, with fairies and all sorted around. Its why I have been careful not to put to much outside my house because I don’t want to spoilt the look. Then I seen this guy and I though he would look perfect. So what do you think ?

Space Sunday: 100+ planets, taking a balloon to orbit, and budgets

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit Space Sunday: 100+ planets, taking a balloon to orbit, and budgets for original post.

When is a planet not a planet – or more precisely, when should what is not regarded as a planet be a planet? Right now, according to the International Astronomical Union (IAU), our solar system comprises eight formally recognised planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. That’s been the case since 2006, […]
