These are NASA’s biggest missions

Published

NASA has had a constant human presence in space for over two decades

Over the years, NASA has put humans on the moon and animals in orbit as it continues to take to new heights with a range of new missions.

Technology developed by humans on the ground has made some of these missions smoother in space.

1. The Apollo Moon landing

In 1969, the United States successfully placed a human on the moon after multiple failed attempts.

Apollo 11 saw Neil Armstrong become the first person to walk on the lunar surface.

The success of the mission spurred a renewed interest in space exploration and paved the way for future missions to deep space.

2. The Hubble Space Telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into orbit around Earth in 1990.

It has been used to observe some of the most distant objects in the universe and has helped to expand NASA’s understanding of the cosmos.

In 2009, the telescope was repaired by a team of astronauts, extending its lifespan by at least another decade.

3. The Cassini-Huygens

The Cassini spacecraft was launched in 1997 and began orbiting Saturn in 2004. It carried the Huygens probe, which successfully landed on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan one year later.

The mission provided scientists with valuable data about Saturn and its moons.

4. The Mars Rovers Spirit and Opportunity

The Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity were launched in 2003 and landed on Mars later that year.

The rovers far exceeded their expected lifespan, with Opportunity operational until 2016.

The rovers have provided scientists with invaluable data about Mars’ surface conditions and have helped to pave the way for future human exploration of the planet.

5. The New Horizons

The New Horizons spacecraft was launched in 2006 and began its flyby of Pluto in 2015.

The mission returned stunning images of Pluto and its moons, as well as valuable data about the dwarf planet’s surface conditions.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?

Published

on

Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns

Published

on

As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
