Second Electric Chevrolet Coming to Michigan

That didn’t take long, did it? In a Friday morning announcement, General Motors said it plans to bring a second electric product to the Orion Assembly plant in suburban Detroit, home to the Chevrolet Bolt. Forget Buick and Cadillac, too. This Bolt-based product is destined to carry the bowtie badge. Details of the upcoming model […] The post Second Electric Chevrolet Coming to Michigan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

NASA administrator Bridenstine wants everyone to know he still has faith in the SLS

Well, that certainly didn't take long! Just a day after NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine alluded to the possibility of flying the new Orion crew capsule's first experimental trip around the Moon using a pair of commercial rockets instead of NASA's own Space Launch System which is still in development, he's issued a new statement assuring everyone that the SLS is still a major part of NASA's future.In a new memo sent to all NASA employees and contractors, Bridenstine clarifi...

Why there's nowhere better to look up than Britain – plus the best stargazing locations on home soil

Something strange happened on the way to the pub: the sky burst into life. Walking down the unlit lane through the barely lit village on the edge of the inky North Sea, I was blindsided by the depth of the darkness and, with every passing second, by the intensifying brightness up above. Every time my eyes scanned a different patch of the heavens, a new pinprick appeared, as if by merely looking I was magicking the stars; every glimpse conjured another constellation, another fanciful join-the-dot...

NASA may be forced to rely on a commercial rocket to test its new crew capsule

NASA is betting big on its Space Launch System and Orion spacecraft as a one-two punch that will send astronauts on missions to the Moon and beyond. Both the Orion and SLS are currently in development, but they're not progressing at nearly the same rate.This leaves NASA in a bit of a pinch as it looks at its immediate schedule. A lunar test flight of the Orion, perched atop the SLS rocket to send it on its way, was supposed to take place by the middle of 2020, but the SLS is way behind sched...

A cosmic bat in flight

Hidden in one of the darkest corners of the Orion constellation, this Cosmic Bat is spreading its hazy wings through interstellar space 2,000 light-years away. It is illuminated by the young stars nestled in its core -- despite being shrouded by opaque clouds of dust, their bright rays still illuminate the nebula. Too dim to be discerned by the naked eye, NGC 1788 reveals its soft colors to ESO's Very Large Telescope in this image -- the most detailed to date.

NASA considers shifting a key test flight beyond the moon to commercial rockets

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told a Senate hearing today that his agency is looking into an option to double up commercial launch vehicles in order to keep a crucial test mission for its Orion spaceship and European-built service module on schedule for mid-2020. The shift would take NASA’s own heavy-lift Space Launch System rocket, or SLS, out of the rotation for the uncrewed test flight around the moon, known as Exploration Mission 1 or EM-1. “Certainly there are opportunities to utilize ...

NASA’s deep space launch system is ‘coming together’

Anyone who dreams of seeing humans travel to Mars will be happy to hear that NASA just offered a detailed update on the progress of the vehicle that could get us there. The Space Launch System rocket and Orion crew capsule are both "coming together," according to NASA.NASA offered a rough timeline of when it expects to actually see the two spacecraft head skyward, with an unmanned test flight tentatively scheduled for 2020 and a manned mission around the Moon slated to take place by 2023.All eye...

Stellar Enemies

Orion is a big constellation with a big story. The story is so big, in fact, that it incorporates several other constellations. Some of them surround the hunter, while another is on the opposite side of the sky — a separation designed to keep two mortal enemies apart. Orion is high in the south as night falls. The bright orange star Betelgeuse marks his shoulder, and blue-white Rigel is his foot. His three-star belt stands between them. In mythology, Orion was one of the major celebrities of his...

Trapezium

The Orion Nebula is visible in the south as night falls. It looks like a fuzzy star below Orion’s Belt. Binoculars will reveal the Trapezium, a cluster of brilliant young stars near the center of the nebula.

Orion Veil

A brilliant young star in the Orion Nebula apparently doesn’t want any more brothers or sisters. It’s blowing an intense “wind” that’s clearing out much of the gas around it — pushing away the raw materials for making more stars. The star is known by the somewhat clumsy name of Theta-1 Orionis C. It’s the heaviest member of the Trapezium — a cluster of hot, massive young stars. The star is many times heavier than the Sun, tens of thousands of degrees hotter, and hundreds of thousands of times br...

A Solar Flare '10 Billion Times More Powerful' Than Earth's Sun Blasted Out of Orion's Sword

In November 2016, astronomers watched a young star some 1,500 light-years away from Earth belch out an explosion of plasma and radiation that was roughly 10 billion times more powerful than any flare ever seen leaving Earth's sun. This sudden stellar eruption may be the most luminous known flare ever released by a young star -- and it could help scientists better understand the still-murky process of star formation."Observing flares around the youngest stars is new territory and it is giving...

Calm

The storm moved through and the wind died down. We got a bunch of rain. Last night, when I looked out the window sometime around 02h00, the stars were clear and bright. The constellation Orion is getting lower in the western sky. We're more than half-way through winter now. This vineyard parcel, planted in sauvignon blanc, is waiting to be pruned before spring. As soon as things dry out a little, I plan to make the rounds with the wheelbarrow and gather up the twigs and branches that were blow...

Monoceros

A unicorn follows Orion across the sky: Monoceros, which is to the lower left of Orion at nightfall. It’s not much to look at, though — its brightest stars are so faint that you need pretty dark skies to pick them out. Perhaps it’s fitting, then, that one of its most interesting denizens is a black hole — the closest one to Earth. A0620-00 is more than 3,000 light-years away. The black hole produces no energy. But it has a companion — a “normal” star about half as massive as the Sun. And it’s th...
