Rendevous and Docking: a User's Guide for Non Rocket Scientists

By: Terry Burlison

Description: A user's guide for non rocket scientists for rendevous and docking.

Excerpt: Two times each day, your launch site will pass directly under the plane of your target orbit. This is when you must launch! If you delay, you will be launching into a different orbital plane; even if it has the same inclination, it will cross the equator at a different point and create a wedge angle between the orbits. Since the earth rotates 360° in 24 hours, elementary school math tells you that’s a degree every 15 minutes. Very quickly, you’ll be too far out ...

The Exoplanet Hunters

By: William Ledbetter

Description: This article lists a few discoveries made by scientists about our solar system and the tools used to make these discoveries.

Excerpt: Gravitational Microlensing is also an interesting, if less used way, to find extrasolar planets. When a small star passes in front of a larger star, its gravity works like a magnifying glass, warping and brightening the farther star's light. If a planet is orbiting the nearer star, that planet will also warp the light from the distant planet, causing it to brighten even more and for a measurable period of time

Siberian Dawn: Tapping Solar System Resources

By: Dr. Greg Matloff

Description: Dr. Greag Matloff discusses the different resources and matters found in space in which we could find as useful resources here on Earth and the value of these useful matters.

Excerpt: The JPL NEO website also includes some discussion of the potential value of minerals in the asteroids. If we can economically tap the main-belt asteroids, the estimated cumulative mineral content of these objects could enrich every human by about $100 billion! More will be said about such forecasts later.

Rediscovering the Solar System

By: Les Johnson

Description: This article takes you back to our solar system. Over the years our solar system has changed. This article gives you up to date imformation about whats happening in our current day solar system.

Excerpt: It is likely that in the 4.5 billion year history of the Solar System, we’ve come close enough to other star systems for us to share members of our Oort Cloud with theirs. Yes, some of the objects now circling our star might actually have originated elsewhere – from around a star now long-gone on its own trek around the Milky Way.

Becoming Martian

By: Terry Burlison

Description: This article presents new scientific findings which, with great hope, will take us steps closer to being able to travel to Mars.

Excerpt: Mars One intends to launch robotic missions beginning in 2016, establishing a communications and life-support infrastructure for the explorers while training private citizens for arrival several years later. The colony will consist of landers launched every two years and configured for different purposes: Life Support Units, Supply Units, and Living Units (with inflatable habitats). As each lander arrives, a rover/trailer, launched in 2018, will transport it to ...

The Aliens Are Not Among US

By: Les Johnson

Description: The Aliens are Not Among Us touch into the scientific theory that we are not the only living 'beings' in our universe. It touches into the theories of evolution and science and based on research that it is almopst close to impossible that we can be the ONLY living beings.

Excerpt: Consider dolphins. Many believe that dolphins are intelligent, that they have language and that they experience many of the higher-order thought processes that we previously considered being the sole province of humanity. That’s just great for the dolphins—as they swim around in the ocean, seemingly carefree, playing with each other and amusing human biologists and tourists alike. But without fire they will never be able to alter their environment to build space...

Rediscovering the Universe

By: Les Johnson

Description: Les Johnson takes history back to when the Universe was first created about 14 billion years ago. He explains the theories that scientists have developed about our currently expanding universe.

Excerpt: Since the stars in a galaxy, like our Milky Way Galaxy, orbit the massive black hole at their center in a manner similar to the way the planets in our solar system orbit the Sun, one would expect that the stars nearer the center of the galaxy to orbit faster than those near the edge. Unexpectedly, when astronomers measured their orbital velocities, they weren't moving as expected. In fact, measurements indicate that all of these stars are moving at about the same angular speed.
