I hope you guys are into astronomy due to the fact this list is all astronomy. It talks about the upcoming events regarding space that are a need to see. There is so considerably stuff going on out there that we will never ever be able to discover everything. At least I believe so. I guess that is why it’s referred to as space. It is intriguing, see, I have a quite curious nature and it bugs me that there is so a lot stuff beyond our planet that we do not know off and maybe by no means will. That is the explanation why I preserve searching into these issues from time to time. That, and the reality that the various phenomenons in space are largely gorgeous.
ten. VENUS TRANSIT
I am a little late on this one but oh well. The transit occurred on the fifth and sixth June and it was clearly visible. There is details obtainable on the complete transit on-line so if you are interested you can examine it out. You could nevertheless be lucky to catch the Mercury transit which is a lot much more frequent and is discussed ahead. Get pleasure from.
9. MERCURY TRANSIT
Mercury transits of the sun are much standard and frequent. It is clear due to the fact it is a lot closer to the Sun and it is on a faster orbit. The transit will continue from May 8 to 10th November. Be certain to hold a look out somehow simply because the subsequent transit will come about in the year 2016. The transits are sliding down the year truly due to the fact according to different reports, back in the year 1585, these transits occurred somewhere among April and October nothing at all to be concerned about I hope.
eight. A BUSY YEAR 2015
The year 2015 will commence with a total solar eclipse. That will happen on the twentieth March. If you are hunting these eclipses, let me tell you now that the best location to view the eclipse would be in the Norwegian Sea. Come fourth April and we must witness a total lunar eclipse that should be visible in the North and South America, East Asia and Australia. July 14th, and the New Horizons spacecraft will reach its closest approach to Pluto should be an fascinating year for all the astronomy guys.
Do you know what comets are? They are supposed to be the leftovers from when the universe was produced. Scientists have this urgent need to have to give them a much more detailed study and figure out how this all began. Rosetta is supposed to chase a comet and land on it immediately after catching up as it enters our solar system and you must know that this sort of stunt has in no way been pulled before. The comet I am referring to is the 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko or C-G in simpler words.
We now have a good understanding of the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter and that is all thanks to Voyager and Galileo. The goal of sending Juno off to Jupiter is to learn specifically how the planet came into existence. Now, I have no notion how they intend to do that but I hope they succeed. It will be interesting. Juno should be able to study the power magnetic and the gravitational field. The north and south poles will also be studied. Oh the auroras there really should be incredible.
The picture you see above is of an asteroid. It is named Vesta. Dawn is supposed to check out the two largest objects in the asteroid belt and Vesta is one of them. Vesta has already been paid a visit by the spacecraft. It occurred on the 16th July in the year 2011. The spacecraft was launched someplace in the year 2007. The second location the spacecraft will pay a visit to is known as Ceres. It is a planet. Dawn must arrive there in the February of the year 2015. The mission ends right after the conduction of scientific experiments on the planet for the remainder of the year.
four. MARS SCIENCE LABORATORY
The lab was launched on the 26th November of the year 2011. It is in best wellness and on its way to Mars. The trip from Earth to Mars is about 254 days or 36 weeks. It’s June now and the lab is supposed to land on mars somewhere in August of this year most likely fiveth or 6th. Curiosity is the robot on this spacecraft and is supposed to be highly advanced. A lot more advanced than the ones already roaming the surface of Mars (duh!). the query remains is Mars habitable?
three. JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE (JWST)
This distinct project is supposed to serve as a replacement for the Hubble telescope. Hubble telescope is nevertheless alive and completely functional by the way. This specific a single is named immediately after James Webb. The telescope should be capable to take visual and infrared pictures. It will take over from the Hubble telescope and search for distant horizons in space. The telescope must be placed at a stationary position at Lagrange Point 2 generating it the first.
Voyager 1 and two were each launched in the year 1977. Both of them paid a pay a visit to to Jupiter and then left for Saturn. Voyager 1’s direction was set so it would move out of the solar method. Voyager 2 even so, carried on to Uranus and Neptune. In the year 1998, Voyager 1 went ahead of Pioneer ten and became the 1st manmade object to travel that far from Earth. As of February 2012 it was 180,000,000,000 kilometers from Earth. That is a lengthy, long distance. I wish it a protected voyage.
1. NEW HORIZONS
This is maybe the greatest achievement of man. New Horizons was launched in the year 2006. It has journeyed around two billion miles and continues to travel as I write. It nonetheless has around 1 billion miles to go. The New Horizons is on its way to Pluto as I am typing and it really should reach the poor minor planet (downgraded a although back from planet) on the 14th July of the year 2015. I wonder how the whole solar system and our very own planet will look like from the ship. It must be an epic view.
