Gambar Baru Dari Teleskop Webb, Pratinjau Misi Artemis I Moon

Mempratinjau misi Artemis I kami ke Bulan…

And an anniversary for one of our explorers on Mars … a few of the stories to tell you about – This Week at NASA!

NASA Pratinjau Misi Artemis I Moon

Kami mempratinjau misi Artemis I tanpa awak kami ke Bulan selama briefing. Pada tanggal 3 Agustus, pejabat lembaga di Markas Besar NASA kami dan di pusat NASA lainnya memberikan “ikhtisar gambaran besar” dari misi.

“Artemis I menunjukkan bahwa kita bisa melakukan hal-hal besar. Hal-hal yang menyatukan orang, hal-hal yang bermanfaat bagi umat manusia. Hal-hal seperti Apollo yang menginspirasi dunia.” — Bill Nelson, Administrator NASA

Itu diikuti dua hari kemudian dengan Menyelam lebih dalam ke dalam garis waktu dan operasi misi dari Pusat Luar Angkasa Johnson kami. Badan tersebut saat ini menargetkan tidak lebih awal dari Senin, 29 Agustus, untuk peluncuran roket Space Launch System untuk mengirim pesawat ruang angkasa Orion mengelilingi Bulan dan kembali ke Bumi. Artemis I akan berlangsung selama sekitar enam minggu untuk memeriksa sistem sebelum astronot terbang di atas pesawat ruang angkasa di Artemis II.

Galaksi Gerobak (NIRCam dan Gambar Komposit MIRI)

Gambar Cartwheel dan galaksi pendampingnya ini adalah gabungan dari Kamera Inframerah Dekat Webb (NIRCam) dan Instrumen Inframerah Tengah (MIRI), yang mengungkapkan detail yang sulit dilihat dalam gambar individual saja.
Galaksi ini terbentuk sebagai akibat dari tabrakan berkecepatan tinggi yang terjadi sekitar 400 juta tahun yang lalu. Roda Gerobak terdiri dari dua cincin, cincin bagian dalam yang cerah, dan cincin luar yang berwarna-warni. Kedua cincin mengembang keluar dari pusat tumbukan seperti gelombang kejut.

Webb Menangkap Gambar Baru Galaksi Gerobak

Teleskop Luar Angkasa James Webb NASA menghasilkan gambar detail baru dari Galaksi Gerobak dan dua galaksi yang lebih kecil. Galaksi Cartwheel, yang terletak sekitar 500 juta tahun cahaya dari kita, adalah jenis galaksi langka yang oleh para astronom disebut “galaksi cincin”. Diyakini bahwa Galaksi Gerobak dulunya adalah galaksi spiral normal seperti kita[{” attribute=””>Milky Way before a collision with another galaxy affected the Cartwheel Galaxy’s shape and structure.

After 10 years on Mars, Curiosity Still Has Drive

NASA’s Curiosity rover is celebrating 10 years on Mars. The rover landed on the Red Planet at 10:32 p.m. PDT on August 5, 2012. Since then, it has driven about 18 miles and climbed more than 2,000 feet while exploring Gale Crater and the foothills of Mount Sharp. Most importantly, Curiosity determined that liquid water and the chemical building blocks needed for life were indeed present in this region of Mars for at least tens of millions of years. The Curiosity team now plans to have the rover spend the next few years exploring a new region, one thought to have formed as water was drying out, leaving behind salty minerals called sulfates.

The Next Commercial Crew Launch to the Space Station

The launch of our SpaceX Crew-5 mission to the International Space Station is currently targeted for no earlier than September 29 from our Kennedy Space Center. NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Josh Cassada, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina discussed their upcoming mission during an Aug. 4 briefing at our Johnson Space Center.

“We are coming together as a human race. And our mission onboard the International Space Station of developing this technology and research to benefit all of humankind is really what brings us together.” — Nicole Mann, NASA Astronaut

This is NASA’s fifth crew rotation flight to the space station with a U.S. commercial spacecraft.

NASA Nichelle Nichols

Actor Nichelle Nichols, who died July 30, 2022, didn’t just break new ground on “Star Trek” by playing one of the first leading recurring Black female characters on U.S. television. A decade after the show ended, she did the same for NASA, appearing in a promotional film aimed at recruiting women and people of color to apply to be astronauts, as she recounted in a 2012 visit to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The next astronaut class, appointed in 1978, included Guy Bluford, the first Black American in space, and Sally Ride, the first American woman in space. Credit: NASA

NASA Pays Tribute to Nichelle Nichols

NASA is remembering actor Nichelle Nichols, who passed away on July 30. She broke new ground on “Star Trek” in her role as Lieutenant Uhura, one of the first leading recurring Black female characters on U.S. television. Years later, NASA officials enlisted her help to recruit the first women and minority astronauts for the Space Shuttle Program. In a statement, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson noted that as we prepare to send the first woman and first person of color to the Moon under Artemis, NASA is guided by the legacy of Nichelle Nichols.

That’s what’s up this week @NASA
