58 Years Of Mars Exploration In 14 Minutes

58 Years Of Mars Exploration In 14 Minutes Hello, welcome to NeoScribe. As far back as the 2nd millennium BC, Ancient astronomers identified 5 celestial objects moving differently than the backdrop of stars. The Greeks called them “planetes” meaning wanderers and many ancient civilizations would go on to worship them as deities. With its abundant iron oxide dispersed on its surface, giving it a reddish appearance, the Romans worshiped Mars as the God of War. Over time, mystical worship shifted to fantastical speculation, of intelligent life on Mars. In 1877, Italian Astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli observed a network of linear structures on the surface of Mars leading to a surge of speculation of the possibility of intelligent life on the Planet. The idea of an A...

Falling Into Jupiter

Falling Into JupiterOur Juno spacecraft has just released some exciting new science from its first close flyby of Jupiter! In case you don’t know, the Juno spacecraft entered orbit around the gas giant on July 4, 2016…about a year ago. Since then, it has been collecting data and images from this unique vantage point. Juno is in a polar orbit around Jupiter, which means that the majority of each orbit is spent well away from the gas giant. But once every 53 days its trajectory approaches Jupiter from above its north pole, where it begins a close two-hour transit flying north to south with its eight science instruments collecting data and its JunoCam camera snapping pictures. Space Fact: The download of six megabytes of data collected during the two-hour transit can take one-and-a-half ...

Watch SpaceX Launch Cargo & Supplies to the International Space Station

Watch SpaceX Launch Cargo & Supplies to the International Space Station Tune in live starting at 10:45 a.m. EST, Sun., Dec. 6 as the 21st SpaceX cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station lifts off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Launch is targeted at 11:17 a.m. The targeted date has changed due to poor weather conditions on Sat., Dec. 5 in the recovery area. This will be the first flight of the upgraded cargo version of the Dragon 2 spacecraft. On board are over 250 science investigations, as well as the Nanoracks Bishop Airlock, set to be attached to the station's Tranquility module. This first commercially funded space station airlock will increase the capacity for external space research at the space station.

Complete Information on Dubin-Johnson syndrome with Treatment and Prevention

It is usually diagnosed in early infancy. It appears to be associated with clotting factor VII in this population. Dubin johnson syndrome has a defect in the multispecific anion transporter gene. Likely a loss of function mutation, since the mutation affects the cytoplasmic domain. Dubin johnson syndrome is a very rare genetic disorder. In order to inherit the condition, a child must get a copy of the defective gene from both parents. Although most patients are asymptomatic, some patients complain of nonspecific right upper quadrant pain, which has been attributed to the anxiety associated with prolonged diagnostic testing.Dubin johnson syndrome occurs in both sexes but has a trend to predominate in males. In women with DJS, pregnancy or oral contraceptive consumption can induce explicit j...

The Night of a Full Moon

Sometimes our lives are so fast paced we often lose sight of the wonderful things that are right in front of us. Take the moon for example, have you ever just stopped, looked up and wondered about it (it's that big round, white thing in the sky).Okay, so your wonderings may have been triggered by your stomach and slide along the region of "is it really made of Cheese?" Or you may have broken out in a cold sweat while anxiously looking around and wondering what the heck you are doing outside during a full moon (Yes, werewolves do rule the night).This is the time to grab your telescope. With a Refracting telescope or a Reflecting telescope you can find out if the moon is indeed made of cheese, safe from whatever may be howling in the woods.Let Us Get to Know Our MoonThe moon is about 380,000...
