India seeks to join exclusive company with ambitious moon mission
July 13, 2019
India’s ambitious $142 million Chandrayaan 2 moon mission, comprising a orbiter, lander and rover, is set for liftoff Sunday to begin a nearly two-month transit culminating in a touchdown near the lunar south pole in September.

India’s robotic Chandrayaan 2 moon mission is set for liftoff Monday after a technical snag last weekend halted the launch from a spaceport on the Indian coast, ISRO said Thursday.
The three-piece moon mission, comprising an orbiter, lander and rover, was set for blastoff last Sunday aboard India’s GSLV Mk.3 rocket. But a technical problem on the GSLV Mk.3’s cryogenic upper stage forced officials to call off the launch in the final hour of the countdown.
Reports from Indian media suggested the problem, apparently related to the cryogenic stage’s helium pressurization system, proved relatively easy to fix.
The Indian Space Research Organization announced the new target launch date in a tweet early Thursday. ISRO faces a short launch window to get the Chandrayaan 2 mission off the ground, and still have time for the spacecraft to reach its planned landing site in early September.
Liftoff is set for 0913 GMT (5:13 a.m. EDT) Monday from the Satish Dhawan Space Center, located on Sriharikota Island on India’s southeastern coast around 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Chennai.
Around 16 minutes after liftoff, the 142-foot-tall (43.4-meter) GSLV Mk.3 rocket will loft the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft into an elliptical orbit around Earth, ranging as high as 24,000 miles (39,000 kilometers) at its farthest point.

Once in lunar orbit, the two segments will split apart to conduct their separate missions. Credit: ISRO
Chandrayaan 2 will use its own propulsion system to raise its orbit over the following weeks, eventually flying high enough to intercept the moon next month. The spacecraft will conduct a series of rocket burns to first slip into orbit around the moon, the lower its altitude to reach a 62-mile-high (100-kilometer) orbit before separating the lander module to begin a descent to the lunar surface.
For a July 14 launch, mission planners designed a transit lasting 53 or 54 days from liftoff until touchdown of Chandrayaan 2’s Vikram lander near the lunar south pole.
ISRO has not announced any change to Chandrayaan 2’s landing date, which was scheduled for Sept. 6 or 7. Officials could shorten the transit time by reducing the number of orbits during Chandrayaan 2’s orbit-raising phase around Earth, and the spacecraft could spend less time in lunar orbit before releasing the lander.
A landing in early September is required to ensure Chandrayaan 2’s Vikram lander touches down soon after sunrise at the landing site in the moon’s southern highlands. The solar-powered lander and its mobile rover are designed to function for about 14 days, the time the sun spends above the horizon on the moon.
The Chandrayaan 2 mission could target a landing date later this year, but that could require a launch delay of weeks or months.
The Chandrayaan 2 orbiter, fitted with its own scientific instruments, is designed for a mission of at least one year. Among other scientific tasks, the orbiter will take high-resolution images of the moon and use a dual-frequency radar to help identify water ice deposits inside the moon’s permanently-shadowed polar craters.
India is aiming to become the fourth nation to successful accomplish a soft-landing on the moon, after landings by the Soviet Union, the United States and China.

Nancy, Wook's significant other called a couple of days ago and Jan talked to her. Seems she had a tough time about the time of Wook's passing and had a stroke then as well, but is doing much better. Still dealing with his estate even now, but thinks it should all be cleared up before long. Hoping it comes out alright for her in the end.
Just for those of you who knew him, he being such a long time and integral piece of the puzzle here. Thought you might like to know the continuing saga as far as we have been alerted.
Gotta admit, there's days I feel like I may be next, but wife says it won't be in boat. She's making me sell it, but I'll be darned it she thinks that's gonna keep me out of the duck blind. I have friends who claim they'll have me there if it takes a wheelchair to get it done.......Ha!

The report came out, no collusion, no obstruction of justice period, why would you obstruct justice when you know you are innocent of all these lies and fabrications?

But sadly to the demonrats and the socialist George Soros bought media seems oblivious to the truth, our socialist media sounds like a robot stuck in the middle of a damaged computer program, they scream and scream so they cant hear the truth, specially the bunch of women who think if they shout louder than men is going to make them right. They should go home and take care of their husbands and kids and stop pretending they know what they are doing.

When this madness is going to stop?

Getting the truth out is difficult. It is difficult because so many cling to indefensible paradigms. No matter the indisputable evidence presented, they will not address it, but continue to promote already demolished arguments. I never had a particularly patient temperament to begin with, but it is growing rather raw, and after presenting evidence on an issue, I have grown ever more prone to giving them my opinion 'With the bark on'. I guess I'm old and impatient. Anybody else?

Oh Yeah, I guess the last two mild heart attacks over the last 6 weeks haven't made me any sweeter either.
Wife says I have to sell boat....she's right. Guess I'll have to enjoy the smell and sound of flowing water from off the bank going forward. SO'K it's been a good run so far.

  First Image of a black hole to be released in 6 simultaneous global press conferences

APRIL 6, 2019
Scientists set to unveil first picture of a black hole
by Marlowe Hood
[Image: ofalltheforc.jpg]Of all the forces or objects in the Universe that we cannot see—dark energy and dark matter—none has frustrated human curiosity so much as the invisible maws that shred and swallow entire stars like so many specks of dust, known as black holes
The world, it seems, is soon to see the first picture of a black hole.

On Wednesday, astronomers across the globe will hold "six major press conferences" simultaneously to announce the first results of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), which was designed precisely for that purpose.
It has been a long wait.
Of all the forces or objects in the Universe that we cannot see—including dark energy and dark matter—none has frustrated human curiosity so much as the invisible maws that shred and swallow stars like so many specks of dust.
Astronomers began speculating about these omnivorous "dark stars" in the 1700s, and since then indirect evidence has slowly accumulated.
"More than 50 years ago, scientists saw that there was something very bright at the centre of our galaxy," Paul McNamara, an astrophysicist at the European Space Agency and an expert on black holes, told AFP.
"It has a gravitational pull strong enough to make stars orbit around it very quickly—as fast as 20 years."
To put that in perspective, our Solar System takes about 230 million years to circle the centre of the Milky Way.
Eventually, astronomers speculated that these bright spots were in fact "black holes"—a term coined by American physicist John Archibald Wheeler in the mid-1960s—surrounded by a swirling band of white-hot gas and plasma.
At the inner edge of these luminous accretion disks, things abruptly go dark.
"The event horizon"—a.k.a. the point-of-no-return—"is not a physical barrier, you couldn't stand on it," McNamara explained.
"If you're on the inside of it, you can't escape because you would need infinite energy. And if you are on the other side, you can—in principle."
A golf ball on the moon
At its centre, the mass of a black hole is compressed into a single, zero-dimensional point.
The distance between this so-called "singularity" and the event horizon is the radius, or half the width, of a black hole.

The EHT that collected the data for the first-ever image is unlike any ever devised.
"Instead of constructing a giant telescope—which would collapse under its own weight—we combined several observatories as if they were fragments of a giant mirror," Michael Bremer, an astronomer at the Institute for Millimetric Radio Astronomy in Grenoble, told AFP.

In April 2017, eight such radio telescopes scattered across the globe—in Hawaii, Arizona, Spain, Mexico, Chile, and the South Pole—were trained on two black holes in very different corners of the Universe to collect data.
Studies that could be unveiled next week are likely to zoom in on one or the other.
Oddsmakers favour Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the centre of our own elliptical galaxy that first caught the eye of astronomers.
Sag A* has four million times the mass of our sun, which means that the black hole is generates is about 44 million kilometres across.
That may sound like a big target, but for the telescope array on Earth some 26,000 light-years (or 245 trillion kilometres) away, it's like trying to photograph a golf ball on the Moon.
Testing Einstein
The other candidate is a monster black hole—1,500 times more massive even than Sag A*—in an elliptical galaxy known as M87.
It's also a lot farther from Earth, but distance and size balance out, making it roughly as easy (or difficult) to pinpoint.
One reason this dark horse might be the one revealed next week is light smog within the Milky Way.
"We are sitting in the plain of our galaxy—you have to look through all the stars and dust to get to the centre," said McNamara.
The data collected by the far-flung telescope array still had to be collected and collated.
"The imaging doink-head we developed fill the gaps of data we are missing in order to reconstruct a picture of a black hole," the team said on their website.
Astrophysicists not involved in the project, including McNamara, are eagerly—perhaps anxiously—waiting to see if the findings challenge Einstein's theory of general relativity, which has never been tested on this scale.
Breakthrough observations in 2015 that earned the scientists involved a Nobel Prize used gravitational wave detectors to track two black holes smashing together.
As they merged, ripples in the curvatures of time-space creating a unique, and detectable, signature.
"Einstein's theory of general relativity says that this is exactly what should happen," said McNamara.
But those were tiny black holes—only 60 times more massive than the Sun—compared to either of the ones under the gaze of the EHT.
"Maybe the ones that are millions of times more massive are different—we just don't know yet."[/size]
