In what has to be one of the greatest engineering achievements in space history, the James Webb Space Telescope was unfolded from its stored configuration and bloomed into its full glory over a two-week period since its launch on Christmas day 2021.
#audiomo Installment 26 W is for Webb, the James Webb Space Telescope
Here is the 26th installment of #audiomo 2020 where I try my best to explain the incredible scientific initiative that is The James Webb Space Telescope. It was rather challenging to record a discussion of the JWST and do it justice it is such a huge endeavour. I will be re-exploring this telescope as it […]
#audiomo Day 15 – N is for Neptune
The other beautiful blue planet in our solar system, here are 10 surprising facts about Neptune for this entry of #audiomo. Note, I made a mistake about Pluto’s orbit, it is in fact 250 or so years, not 350 as stated, my apologies. I had also forgotten to mention that Neptune has a large storm […]
#audiomo Day 13 & 14 L is for LRO, M is for Moon
I cheated a little bit on this one and combined two #audiomo days into one, but it’s OK, they are both about the same thing, our wonderful Moon!
#audiomo Day 12 – K is for Kepler
The Kepler spacecraft was launched to find exoplanets and boy did it find them!
#audiomo Day 10 – I is for ISS
No, I’ve never actually been on the ISS, this is a photo montage I did years ago for the music social-audio challenge called Octaver. In this #audiomo installment I take a quick peak inside of the ISS in hopes of seeing Tom, Tom?
#audiomo Day 9 – H is for Hubble Space Telescope
After 30 years this marvel of engineering is still providing glimpses into the majestic vastness of the Universe and all the gifts it offers on its plate.
#audiomo Day 8 – G is for Goddard Spaceflight Center
In this installment of #audiomo slandi looks at the Goddard Spaceflight Center, one of the 10 large centers for NASA and the scientific and engineering hub of space exploration.
#audiomo Day 5 – E is for Exoplanet
