Iss Dulhe Ko Baratiyo Ki Jarurat Hi Nahi
So, I watched Gravity when it first released and was instantly inspired to make something space-y. It started off as a quick experiment and slowly grew into this little thing. ;)
Behind The Scenes:
As per usual, thanks to August 'Rantis' Loolam for his awesome custom personality core models:
'ISS' - Gravity OST by Steven Price
Follow me if you want: =)
The space industry has worked to increase capacity and to provide different alternatives for microgravity research. Today companies have the option to fly microgravity experiments that last anywhere from a couple seconds to dozens of months using parobolic flights, suborbital vehicles, sounding rockets, and the ISS. The focus has now shifted to expanding the user base and to encourage interesting research, and the key to sustainable growth is to make it commercially viable.

In Space News we have the launch of an Atlas V carrying the Twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes. Falcon 9 performs a Wet Dress Rehearsal. ATK may no longer be making the Liberty rocket.
Politics. Where do President Obama and Mitt Romney stand on space policy? Which will be better for space and where do they stand on the issues?

As NewSpace firms begin flying, they must first cross through the airspace of public opinion, where they and their goals are being re-defined in terms of the old paradigm of servicing the government or to provide frivolous entertainment for the 1%. Thus the old school can dismiss the idea of helping create a new industry that will open the frontier in favor of making sure NASA gets a ride to the ISS, and regular people see no connection between what is happening and themselves. We must stop playing around the edges as a movement and get to the heart of the matter. It is time to stop fighting for scraps from someone else's agenda and change the agenda completely. It is time to get back to the Vision of settling space as the central and driving goal of human spaceflight, and to make it official -- thus creating a new blueprint by which to make decisions in space and a new yardstick by which to measure progress. Mr. Tumlinson will address this concept, and also explain his new EarthLight Institute project.

This is a recording from NASA TV on the launch of the Soyuz TMA-03M/ISS 29S from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. Aboard are three members of the next Expedition crew destined for the International Space Station

We may spend a lot of time talking about the larger NewSpace companies such as SpaceX, but in this episode we look at a couple of the smaller entities that are doing some amazing things with next to zero budget.
NASA has returned some beautiful videos of the shuttle attached to the ISS while ESA wants to make sure we don't go stir crazy during our ride to Mars.
All that, a bit of Spacevidcast crazy and your questions answered on this Jun 10th, 2011 edition of Spacevidcast Live.
3 new crew members reach the ISS and a really interesting way to look at our own moon. I'm Benjamin Higginbotham and this is your Spacevidcast SpacePod for December 21st, 2010.
On Wednesday, December 15th 2010 a Russian Soyuz rocket lifted off carrying the next 3 crew members bound for the International Space Station. Then on Friday the 17th the capsule docked with the space station at 20:11 UT. A couple of hours later The expanded Expedition 26/27 crew opened the hatch and ingressed to the station. The three person crew of Soyuz TMA-20, Dmitri Kon-drat-yev, Catherine Coleman and Paolo Nespoli represent the partner organizations of Roscosmos, NASA and the European Space Agency in the ISS program.
While the US and Russia added more people to the Space Station, China launched a rocket to add more satellites to their upcoming GPS constellation this last Friday. A new satellite navigation and positioning network or Compass System was launched aboard a Long March 3A rocket from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center at 20:20 UT. This is the 2nd of what will be 35 satellites providing both civilian and military GPS data to China.
Being that we just saw a lunar eclipse, how about a new way to look at the moon? NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter or LRO is orbiting the moon creating the most precise and complete map to date of the moons complex surface. Originally launched to help scout out landing sites for the nearly defunct Constellation program, LRO remains in Lunar Orbit gathering data. Using an instrument called the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter or LOLA the spacecraft sends a single laser pulse down to the lunar surface through an optical element that splits the pulse in to 5 beams. These 5 beams then strike the surface of the moon and depending on how long it takes for each to return, LOLA is able to map out what the surface terrain looks like. The end result are some psychedelic pictures of our moon. By artificially adding color in we can get a good idea as to what the surface of the moon looks like. The red areas indicate high elevation whereas the blue areas are the lowest. You can get more pictures and videos at NASA's LRO web site.

And if you think this is a cool prize, you should see what we're giving away during our live show this Friday at 0200 UT. It's going to be awesome and I know we'll see you there!
CAPE CANAVERAL -- The space shuttle Discovery, its nosed pointed toward the sky, its belly attached to the massive, orange External Tank (ET) and twin Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB) slowly but surely emerged from the cavernous Vehicle Assembly Building at 7:24 p.m. EDT on Sept. 20. This marks the final time Discovery is scheduled to make the 3.4 - mile trip to Launch Complex 39A (LC39A) in preparation for her last planned mission -- STS-133.Bathed in spotlights Discovery's last rollout was a bittersweet moment for workers that have cared for the orbiter. Discovery was rolled out four hours earlier than normal so that workers could take pictures. Rollout is conducted in the evening hours to prevent potential damage from possible lightning strikes. The crawler-transporter moves at a blistering mile-an-hour, but despite this slow speed, the vehicle and its precious cargo create an amazing spectacle.Discovery is currently scheduled to lift off from LC39A on Nov. 1 at 4:40 p.m. EDT. Afterward Discovery will be maintained in flight ready condition in case the orbiter is needed to fly a possible rescue mission. After the end of the shuttle era, Discovery will go to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum located in Washington D.C.There are two crawler-transporters that NASA has used to transport spacecraft from the VAB to LC39A. They were originally used to transport the mighty Saturn family of rockets during the Apollo era. The crawler-transporters were designed by Bucyrus International and built by Marion Power Shovel. The vehicles cost $14 million a piece and are the largest self-powered track vehicles in the world. ;STS-133 marks the 35th flight to the orbiting outpost and the 39th flight for Discovery and the 133rd flight in the space shuttle program. The crew members for this mission are Commander Steven Lindsey, Pilot Eric Boe and Mission Specialists Alvin Drew, Michael Barratt, Tim Kopra and Nicole Stott. Discovery will deliver and install the Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM), the Express Logistics Carrier 4 as well as deliver critical spare components to the ISS. Also onboard is the first humanoid robot to fly in space, Robonaut-2.
