Giant Musk ‘Goat’ statue arrives at Tesla factory in crypto stunt

Posted by in categories: space travel, sustainability


Elon GOAT Token’s efforts to deliver the statue landed the company on Twitter’s U.S. trending page. Musk purchased the social network last month, causing an upheaval with mass layoffs, departed advertisers and potential changes to the process of obtaining a Twitter Blue check mark.

Costing a total of $600,000, according to Elon GOAT Token, the Musk sculpture is a nod to the billionaire’s fame — a rocket representing SpaceX, the spacecraft company Musk founded; and the literal goat, a word that is also used as an acronym for the phrase “Greatest Of All Time.”

Australia’s first rocket planned for 2023

Posted by in category: space travel

To date, only a handful of countries have developed an independent launch capability. If all goes according to plan, Gilmour Space could enable Australia to become the 12th member of the club able to put its own rockets into space.

Founded in 2012, Australian company Gilmour Space is working on hybrid-engine rockets and associated technologies to support the development of low-cost space launch vehicles.

Israeli company unearths rare mineral

Posted by in categories: business, space travel

A post was reported and I checked it. My business is minerals, and I had heard of the discovery before so I kept the post. Here is information from BBC to back it up.

Carmeltazite was added to the official list of known minerals this week after being approved by the International Mineralogical Association (IMA).

Taub Avi, CEO of the precious stone exploration company Shefa Yamim, said it was discovered by the company in volcanic rock in northern Israel’s Sevulun Valley.

9 stunning images captured by NASA’s record-breaking Orion spacecraft

Posted by in category: space travel

NASA’s Orion spacecraft will soon fly further than any human-rated spacecraft has ever flown before.

NASA’s Orion spacecraft is now on day 10 of the Artemis I mission after the successful launch of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) on November 16, meaning it has had ample opportunity to capture a wealth of stunning imagery of the moon.

The uncrewed capsule cruised within 81.1 miles (130 kilometers) of the lunar surface during its closest approach to the moon earlier this week, and it is now preparing to enter a distant retrograde orbit (DRO) of the moon that will see it fly farther from Earth than any human-rated spacecraft ever has before.

Here’s How NASA Determines Which Applicants Make It to Be Astronauts

Posted by in categories: biological, computing, engineering, space travel

Many children grow up gazing up at the night sky, dreaming of becoming astronauts who boldly go to the Moon – and beyond.

But in order to get that elusive job, would-be astronauts must make it through a competitive selection process. For NASA’s 2021 class of astronauts, the space agency said it chose just 10 candidates from more than 12,000 applicants.

NASA ‘giddy’ over amazing moon views from Artemis 1 Orion spacecraft

Posted by in category: space travel

NASA officials say Artemis 1 mission teams are “giddy” after witnessing how well their Orion spacecraft has been performing so far on its way towards lunar orbit.

Artemis 1 launched at 1:47 a.m. EST (0647 GMT) on Nov. 16, blasting off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida in a spectacular display of the sheer power of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. The Orion spacecraft reached Earth orbit shortly after, and then at 87 minutes after launch performed a so-called Trans Lunar Injection burn to send it hurtling towards the moon. On Monday (Nov. 21), Orion performed another burn to send the spacecraft close enough to the lunar surface to leverage the moon’s gravity to pull the spacecraft around the moon into a distant retrograde lunar orbit.

The Sun has been intense the past week, and now solar flares are coming toward Earth

Posted by in category: space travel

There have been 24 coronal mass ejections in the past week alone.

As NASA’s Orion spacecraft prepares to fly by the Moon, sky gazers can expect another little treat in the skies as a minor geomagnetic storm is expected to hit the Earth, EarthSky.

Over the past week, our Sun has seen some intense activity. Usually, when activity on the Sun increases, the chances of a geomagnetic storm on Earth also increase. Geomagnetic storms carry risks to infrastructure and communications on the planet. However, in the past week, our planet has been a bit lucky it wasn’t in the line of fire.
