The Race to Mars in 2020

The Race to Mars in 2020 Mars is our next door neighbor, yet we almost never visit. But in July of 2020 humans are launching four separate missions to Mars. » Subscribe to Seeker! http://bit.ly/subscribeseeker » Watch more Elements! http://bit.ly/ElementsPlaylist » Visit our shop at http://shop.seeker.com The missions are all launching in July 2020 because it is the ideal time to get a spacecraft to Mars while using the least amount of rocket fuel. But not because the two planets are at their closest, instead it has to do with something called a Hohmann transfer orbit—the most efficient way to send a spacecraft to Mars. This orbit is elliptical, and uses the sun as one focal point. The spacecraft’s launch is at the closest point to the sun, or perihelion, and ...

Thank you to all who have joined our match!

Thank you to all who have joined our match! We are incredibly grateful to all of our supporters who have contributed to our matching challenge. The end of the year is moments away but it’s not too late to make a gift to our end of year campaign. Please consider making a gift. Every dollar counts. Like many organizations, Space Center Houston has had a challenging 2020. We had to close our doors for four months, which forced us to re-imagine and redefine our mission. These operational changes have come at great cost. We need your help to ensure our future and to continue engaging and inspiring learners through the wonders of space exploration. Our top priority this year is to expand our Digital Resource Initiative, which helps us bring the work of NASA scientists and engineers to ALL stud...

WOW! REALLY?? Where Are ALL The Photos Of EARTH From SPACE??

WOW! REALLY?? Where Are ALL The Photos Of EARTH From SPACE?? One would expect there to be tens of thousands of photos of earth from space, but sadly there's not. There is one NASA claims to be real and that photo contradicts what modern day/mainstream science (or Scientism) has been teaching us.

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and SaturnWe launched our Spitzer Space Telescope into orbit around the Sunday on Aug. 25, 2003. Since then, the observatory has been lifting the veil on the wonders of the cosmos, from our own solar system to faraway galaxies, using infrared light.Thanks to Spitzer, scientists were able to confirm the presence of seven rocky, Earth-size planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system. The telescope has also provided weather maps of hot, gaseous exoplanets and revealed a hidden ring around Saturn. It has illuminated hidden collections of dust in a wide variety of locations, including cosmic nebulas (clouds of gas and dust in space), where young stars form, and swirling galaxies. Spitzer has additionally investigated some of the universe’s oldest galaxies and stared at the...
