NASA Image of the Week

I was born August 24th making my astrological sign Virgo so imagine my surprise when this week’s NASA image is from the constellation Virgo over 50 million light years from Earth. Everytime I cruise this collection of images sent to us from the Hubble telescope, I think it pays for itself 50 million times over. More from NASA,

Despite the incredible quality of this image, taken from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, NGC 4535 has a hazy, somewhat ghostly, appearance when viewed from a smaller telescope. This led amateur astronomer Leland S. Copeland to nickname NGC 4535 the “Lost Galaxy” in the 1950s.

The bright colors in this image aren’t just beautiful to look at, as they actually tell us about the population of stars within this barred spiral galaxy. The bright blue-ish colors, seen nestled amongst NGC 4535’s long, spiral arms, indicate the presence of a greater number of younger and hotter stars. In contrast, the yellower tones of this galaxy’s bulge suggest that this central area is home to stars which are older and cooler. 

This galaxy was studied as part of the Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS (PHANGS) survey, which aims to clarify many of the links between cold gas clouds, star formation, and the overall shape and other properties of galaxies. On January 11, 2021 the first release of the PHANGS-HST Collection was made publicly available.  Well Lady’s First I dig it!

The core stage for the first flight of NASA’s Space Launch System rocket is seen in the B-2 Test Stand during a scheduled eight minute duration hot fire test, Saturday, Jan. 16, 2021, at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The four RS-25 engines fired for a little more than one minute and generated 1.6 million pounds of thrust. The hot fire is the final test of the Green Run test series, a comprehensive assessment of the Space Launch System’s core stage prior to launching the Artemis I mission to the Moon.

The hot fire is the final test of the Green Run test series, a comprehensive assessment of the Space Launch System’s core stage prior to launching the Artemis I mission to the Moon.

Jan. 21-22, 2020, crews at Stennis Space Center lifted and installed the first core stage of NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS) rocket onto the B-2 Test Stand. In upcoming months, a top-to-bottom, integrated series of Green Run tests will be conducted on the stage and its sophisticated systems. Following testing, the stage will be used to help launch the maiden Artemis I test mission of SLS and the Orion spacecraft. Through the Artemis program, NASA will send humans, including the first woman and next man, to the Moon to establish a sustainable presence.

Ships of Star Trek

2 Favorite Class of Ships, Enterprise and Defiant

I really need to get back into ST online and I can’t wait for the next season of Picard.

Ohhh this is a re-imagined intro to ST Voyager in HD, it’s pretty good!

STAR Trek Picard Season 2 Teaser…What in the damn hell???

Whoopi is back, 7 is back, Data don’t know if he coming back, Geordi and them back…I can’t even. I am most interested in the special effects, ships, if the Defiant will be wrecking -ish

Yes this is more to me than the little ship that could

USS Defiant entering The Worm Hole in the Gamma Quadrant

in Deep Space 9, because Captain Ben Sisko was the first brother to anchor and entire ST series, and he did it with a hair cut that needed lining

Avery Brooks, ST Deep Space 9

but then he had fresh dome with a immaculate goatee towards the end.

He ended up being a Bajoran Prophet, makes sense to me because his mama was.

Sisko’s Prophet Mama

But isn’t that how it was from the beginning of the Star Trek Series, there has been an intersection of good versus evil and religion and technology and science. Very entertaining. One of my favorite spin-offs.
