Interesting to think that in the future when space flight has become the norm that history will look back on this little capsule as the moment space opened up to the rest of the world instead of a select few governments

They are having some issues on the space station atm. Pretty sure its a software bug but the guy trying to fix it obviously dosen't have team viewer ect. so he is using the public webcam to help earth trouble shoot the problem. He is literaly showing the world the software and bugs it is having, I just seen a list of global variables they are using.

Thought this may interest some of you.

Also running WinXP lol, NASA couldn't even afford Win7. Not a MAC in sight tbf

The ISS has been up there for that long they cant upgrade every piece of software as technology advances so they do have to make do with old equipment.

Lets introduce a new operating system to something as critical as a space station...

sorry, every piece of hardware I meant..

old software... hang on...

The ISS has been up there for that long they cant upgrade every piece of hardware as technology advances so they do have to make do with old software + if it ain't broke, don't fix it! :)

was your old phones broke before you's got iPhones? Also, y so serious? Only saying like, i'm sure they could upgrade upthere and a Win7 disc wouldn't be very difficult to bring with. Can't see a problem with upgrading their OS and software to Win7

We're not orbiting in space though! lol.. I'm not being serious, just saying what the reasons are. The ISS was launched in 1998.. that was back when Win 98 was knocking about. Hardware back then found it hard enough to go from Win98 to XP, never mind Windows 7.

is that link always up and running?? Never seen it before!

yea it's a constant stream, if you had have been on yesterday afternoon there was a bit of hoovering and stuff being done. Think it flicks between webcams, ffew on the outside and one or two inside. My boss is well into this stuff, he showed it to me.

Aren't we?

It's class! Gonna keep an eye on it!

lol.. well, we are, but thankfully we've got the Earth attached to us too! ;D

Stunning NASA Simulation Shows a Galaxy’s Entire Life History www.gizmodo.co.uk/2012...

Colours indicate old stars (red), young stars (white and bright blue) and the distribution of gas density (pale blue); the view is 300,000 light-years across. The simulation ran on the Pleiades supercomputer at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., and required about 1 million CPU hours. It assumes a universe dominated by dark energy and dark matter.

that's great

Space isn't as good as it used to be.

Boring planets sitting around stroking their chins. Hanging around black holes trying to look cool.

was really hoping for a gaping black hole :/

It's in there you just need to stare real hard

@mincer... if a society is advanced enough to run simulation of the universe then it is probably possible to run 2 or more.

If this is the case then there are at least three versions of the universe so there is a greater probability that we exist in the simulation than in the real universe

I tried staring real hard... It appeared more like the magic eye version of a wheel moon...

"NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has apparently made an important discovery “for the history books,” but we’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out what the new Red Planet find may be, media reports suggest."

Re: takki

"It appears the Curiosity rover on Mars has had some exciting news, but NASA controllers have said that they're keeping quiet about it until the facts have been checked.

"This data is gonna be one for the history books. It's looking really good," John Grotzinger, principal investigator for Curiosity told NPR.

According to Grotzinger, the data comes from the rover's Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument, which consists of a six-column gas chromatograph, a quadrupole mass spectrometer, and a tunable laser spectrometer. This gives SAM the ability to find organic life, if it exists."

fuck we need to send some better optics

They need to get a rover onto Titan.

0 |

i want full colour panoramics of methane lakes, rivers of mercury and double moon horizons

0 |

dunno about the rivers of Mercury in our solar system... I always think standing on a Moon of Saturn (one without a thick atmosphere!) must have a pretty epic nights sky (Huge Saturn and the rings).

0 |

Can they not point Hubble at it for a decent pic?

0 |

Titan has a fairly dense atmosphere, hence imaging even from orbit is very difficult.

0 |

optics sent up with planet scanning satelites are always a: woefully out of date due to time taken to get to said planet and extensive testing required and b: always take a backseat to proper science gathering
