Astronomy Online: Grand Tour of the Universe #LearnWithMe

Astronomy Online: Grand Tour of the Universe #LearnWithMe We all know we live on the third planet from the Sun, but where are we in the universe? Blast off from Earth and take a grand tour to the farthest reaches of the observable universe with Assistant Director of the Hayden Planetarium Brian Abbott and astrophysics educator Irene Pease. Along the way, explore the nearby exoplanets, see where Earth is located in the Milky Way Galaxy, and discover why as we look farther out into space, we see further back in time to earlier epochs of the universe. Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund. *** Subscribe to our channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

NASA Invests in a Plan to Build Landing Pads and Other Structures on the Moon out of Regolith

NASA Invests in a Plan to Build Landing Pads and Other Structures on the Moon out of RegolithMaterials are a crucial yet underappreciated component of any space exploration program.  Without novel materials and ways to make them, things that are commonplace today, such as a Falcon 9 rocket or the Mars rovers, would never have been possible.  As humanity expands into the solar system, it will need to make more use of the materials found there – a process commonly called in-situ resource utilization (ISRU).  Now, the advanced concepts team at NASA has taken a step towards supporting that process by supporting a proposal from Dr. Sarbajit Banerjee, a chemist at Texas A&M.  The proposal suggests using lunar regolith to build a stable landing pad for future moon missions...
