  1. Many of us have been intrigued by the stars and galaxies that lay beyond the reach of human eyes. We are fascinated by the mention of the presence of life on other planets on our solar system and cannot seem to get over the mysteries that surround our beloved natural satellite, Moon. © Facebook But while most of us interested in astronomy donât end up going beyond star-gazing or owning a professional telescope at home, others turn it into their vocation and continue to fuel their curiosity for years. Astronauts happen to be one such group of individuals who are willing to devote their lives for path breaking research and experiments. © Twitter/NASA So recently, as many as 12,000 aspiring astronauts sent in their applications to become future NASA astronauts for its Artemis generation that will undertake its upcoming Moon and Mars missions. Recently NASA revealed that it received applications from every US state in a span of a month from March 1st to 31st. Now the agency plans to interview the most qualified applicants to make the final decision post medical clearance. This development has left people on Twitter intrigued. Astronaut applications were due today... I'm not going lie, I kind of want to know what the requirements are 𥺠@NASA â aaayyyyy.sami (@AnginiSami) April 3, 2020 Others think itâs to run away from coronavirus. Just read #NASA got 12,000 applications for a space mission. Motherfuckas trying to leave the GD PLANET to escape the #coronavirus. 𤯠â Mike Fly (@mfly1971) April 2, 2020 Second largest number of applications ever? https://t.co/j4nUraUSkV More than 12,000 astronaut applications in to #NASA, the 2nd-largest ever; for missions such as returning to & helping lay groundwork for trip to Mars" GOOD LUCK, Y'ALL ð§âââ<< May the next group change what the default #AstronautEmoji looks like â Kay Savage (@Kay_the_Savage) April 2, 2020 Many are still hoping to make the cut. I made it under the wire yesterday. My application is in for the next NASA Astronaut Class selection. My odds are up! 1 in over 12,000. Last time it was 1 in 18,300! Under half selected are civilians. So the odds are even less. Space, here I come! â Ginny Mauldin (@GinnyMauldin) April 1, 2020This is the highest number of applications received by NASA and this selected generation of astronauts who make the cut will lead an extensive expedition on digging more information about the Moon. The selected list is expected to be out by next year around October. In a world where people today are trying to make some quick bucks via social media, it is interesting to see the spike in applications for a profile which requires a lifetime of hard work.

  2. India playing dangerous games to divert attention from internal issues, but Pakistan Army ready for any misadventure: Maj Gen Iftikhar
  3. With all eyes on ISRO's upcoming 'Gaganyaan' mission, it seems that preparations for the space mission are in full swing. Recently, it was announced that special food packets have been prepared for the astronauts that are part of 'Gaganyaan'. The menu includes Idli-Sambar, Upma, Coconut Chutney and much more. A Mysuru lab has prepared special food packets for the astronauts who'll be travelling to space. The Astronauts will also have special food heaters to warm up their food. Here's what the food packets looks like- For the Indian astronauts scheduled to go into Space in Mission Gaganyan, food items including Egg rolls, Veg rolls, Idli, Moong dal halwa and Veg pulav have been prepared by the Defence Food Research Laboratory, Mysore. Food heaters would also be provided to them. pic.twitter.com/gDgt9BJpb2 — ANI (@ANI) January 7, 2020 ANI took to Twitter shared the above post along with a caption saying, “For the Indian astronauts scheduled to go into Space in Mission Gaganyan, food items including Egg rolls, Veg rolls, Idli, Moong dal halwa and Veg pulav have been prepared by the Defence Food Research Laboratory, Mysore.

  4. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) takes the trophy when comes to being one of India's greatest pride and joy. Over the years, ISRO has achieved many feats that will find a mention in the pages of history. While 2019 saw ISRO unlock new achievements, 2020 is set to be equally significant for the organisation with two major missions set to go down this year. All eyes will be set on India's first manned space mission 'Gaganyaan' and third lunar mission 'Chandrayaan-3' in 2020. © ISRO However, currently the big news that's trending on social media is that ISRO has revealed that four astronauts have been identified by the space organisation who are set to travel to space aboard Gaganyaan. While their names and designations haven't been disclosed yet, other interesting details related to the Gaganyaan mission has surfaced. Here's everything you need to know as per the news reports: 1. ISRO Chief Dr K Sivan shared that four astronauts will be part of the Gaganyaan mission. © Twitter/ISRO 2. The shortlisted astronauts are all Indian Air Force officers, who went through multiple screening tests to get to this point. 3. Besides many medical examinations that the astronauts had to pass, Institute of Aerospace Medicine also conducted different fitness tests before making the selection. 4. The selection programme started off with seven astronaut elects in November, of which four have been shortlisted for the mission. © Twitter/DDNews 5. The four selected astronauts will now undergo rigorous training beginning the third week of January. 6. Russia has extended its support to train the astronauts for the mission. 7. The maiden mission will see three astronauts making it aboard the Gaganyaan, who will orbit the earth for seven days at an altitude of 400 km! 8. According to reports, the mission will be conducted within a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore, and shall hit off the ground by 2022. © Twitter/ISRO 9. Before the manned mission, ISRO will undertake two unmanned missions including one where a humanoid will ensure that humans can be sent into space and brought back safely. 10. The mission will help conduct path-breaking experiments related to microgravity, bioscience and space operations. There is a long journey ahead of ISRO and the shortlisted astronauts who are set to create history. We are eagerly waiting for more updates on selected astronauts and the next steps that will be taken ahead of India's first manned space mission set to unfold in two years from now.

  5. 2019, as we already know, was a fantastic year for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). After the 'Chandrayaan 2' mission, it looks like the organization wants to continue doing big things in 2020 as well. ISRO chief K Sivan, recently, addressed the media to outline some of the upcoming launches and missions. We're looking at two different big mission that are lined up for ISRO. One is 'Chandrayaan 3', which is a highly talked-about mission. Along with that, ISRO will also be working on the 'Gaganyaan' mission. It's said that the 'Gaganyaan' mission will be done in parallel with 'Chandrayaan 3'. © Reuters 'Gaganyaan' mission, for those of you who don't know, will be ISRO's first spacecraft mission. The mission will see India sending humans into space for the first time. The astronauts will be sent for a minimum for 7 days by 2022, which is simply awesome. The test flights for the mission will likely begin by the end of this year if everything goes smoothly. The spacecraft that will be used to carry the astronauts will be developed by ISRO and it'll consist of a service module and crew module. © Reuters The astronauts for the mission got shortlisted after a series of tests conducted both in India and Russia. All four of them have been confirmed to be Indian Air Force pilots. The astronauts will be trained in Russia during which they'll be sharing their expertise on human space flights. The training is set to begin by the third week of January. Although the 'Gaganyaan mission won't be finished by 2022, a huge chunk of the important work will be done this year itself, including the astronaut training. We hope to get constant and timely updated from ISRO on this, so we'll keep you posted. Source: Ministry of Info & Broadcast View the full article

  7. For his film, Street Dancer's promotion, Varun Dhawan is clearly pulling all the stops. From teaching Charlotte Flair never-seen-before steps from one of the songs of Street Dancer to pulling off stunts in an auto with fellow actor Shraddha Kapoor, he's not leaving out anything. © Instagram/Manav Manglani And while at it, Varun Dhawan is making sure that he wears the quirkiest of outfits. Case in point, the time when he was with Charlotte Flair, he wore the Fury Boost silhouette with a yellow onesie which has arguably been one of the best sneaker collaborations this year. © Instagram/Manav Manglani And then recently, he wore C2H4 coordinated jacket and joggers that had a futuristic vibe to them. Underneath the jacket, he wore a plain black t-shirt that had a street dancer logo printed on it. He completed the outfit with a pair of sunglasses and a chunky chain. Take a look here: © Instagram/Manav Manglani Label C2H4, (Molecular Formula for Ethylene) was established by designer Yixi Chen. The label combines influences curated from science and subversive culture, to create innovative garment constructions keeping in mind futuristic aesthetics. This clearly reflects in Varun's outfit. © Instagram/Manav Manglani Besides, it's also a perfect outfit for Street Dancer promotions and while he's mostly seen in the most sporty yet trendy outfits, there are also one-off occasions when he dresses up like a regular guy like his classic denim-on-denim look that he wore recently. Street Dancer is set to release on January 24, 2020, so we're hoping to find some of Varun's best looks in the film. View the full article
  8. NASA's Voyager 2 probe has reached a destination that we can only dream of. The probe has reached the interstellar space, a space outside the Heliosphere. It's worth pointing out that it's the second craft to reach the interstellar space, despite setting off a month ahead of its twin, the Voyager 1. But you know what? Voyager 2's journey has given us a never-seen-before image of our solar system. It's the most detailed look yet at the edge and we know what it really looks like. Here, take a look: © NASA What you see above is an illustration showing the positions of both the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 outside the heliosphere. Can you see the boundary that surrounds our solar system? Well, the Voyager 1 had confirmed that it existed, but the new measurements sent across by the Voyager 2 has now given us more insights like its shape, thickness, and more. For those of you who don't know, the heliosphere is sort of a boundary that surrounds our solar system. As the folks over at The Guardian noted, it's where the charged particles rushing outwards from the sun at supersonic speeds meet a cooler wind blowing in from supernovae that exploded millions of years ago. © NASA The finds and the relevant measurements sent by the Voyager 2 have been published in five separate papers, each one detailing a different finding. Looks like the heliosphere boundary is much thinner than what the Voyager 1 informed us about. It's also worth pointing out that the shape of this bubble appears to be something like a blunt bullet and it's said to be symmetric in nature. With all that being said, it's safe to say that there's an extra layer outside our solar system, a mysterious finding that's only been made possible by the info sent by the Voyager 2. Obviously, it's hard to exactly pinpoint the findings sent across by the Voyager 2, but we're glad the NASA scientists have some new data to work with. We're also glad to hear that the signal from Voyager 2 is still beaming back and it takes more than 16 hours to reach the Earth. It's twelve billion miles away from us after all. It uses a 22.4-watt transmitter, which has a power equivalent to a fridge light. The beam, which fades by more than a billion times, is picked by a 70-meter dish down here by NASA. Let's hope we continue to get signals from the probe and get to know more about our solar system and beyond. View the full article
  9. The International Space Station, as we all know, is currently the only fully functional space station in the Earth's lower orbit. It's the result of a partnership between European countries represented by the European Space Agency the United States, Japan, Canada, and Russia. Well, looks like there's going to be another space station by the year 2030 and it's going to be launched by none other than India. The same has been confirmed by the ISRO chief K Sivan during a press conference where he also talked a bit more about the project. © Reuters He made it a point to inform that India will not be joining the International Space Station (ISS) and launch its own space station, which will be an extension of the Gaganyaan project. “We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme. So, subsequently, as a long-term plan, we are planning to have the space station in India. We are going to join the international community in manned missions to the moon, asteroids. We have a clear plan for the space programme,” Sivan said. The proposed space station will likely weigh 20 tonnes and it's said to be used for conducting microgravity experiments. India is targetting 2030 as the date to launch the space station and the preliminary plan is for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space. We still don't have a lot of details, but we hope to learn more after the completion of Gaganyaan mission. © Reuters As for the Gaganyaan mission, the government is said to have cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore. It looks like there will be two flights from Sriharikota before the maiden flight with crew takes of sometime in 2022. ISRO's complete focus right now is on India's second moon mission, Chandrayan -2. It will take off on July 15 and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, which has remained an uncharted territory so far. You can learn more about the Chandrayan-2 mission right here.
  10. The words adventure and adrenaline rush mean different things for different people. For some, it could equal climbing the Everest, for others, it could mean drinking the night away before an important exam. However, the ultimate adventure, travelling to space, a dream filled with fear and inhibition for everyone might become a reality soon, only for the super-rich of course. Starting next year, NASA plans on beginning space tourism which will allow private astronauts, i.e guests to travel to outer space. Today starts a new day in low-Earth orbit as we unlock the @Space_Station's potential as a platform for companies to engage in commercial profit-making activities and we welcome private astronauts to visit on U.S. vehicles. Get more details: https://t.co/lJnIlxaii7 pic.twitter.com/8sbi1lEzIn — NASA (@NASA) June 7, 2019 To begin with, this travel is not going to take one to the Moon, but to NASA's international space station.NASA will tie up with private companies which will operate this orbit tour of 30 days. The guests will have to shell out close to 24 lakhs INR per night for this luxury. But no, that's not it folks. It has also tied up with Elon Musk's SpaceX, which will use its Dragon capsule, and Boeing, which is currently building a spacecraft called the Starliner. The taxi fare for this will be close to $ 60 million per flight! Crazy right? Well, the price is as crazy as the idea of vacationing in outer space.
  11. Despite the decriminalisation of Article 377, LGBTQIA+ individuals struggle every single day to 'be themselves' out in the open and own their sexuality; unfortunately, just like the society struggles to let go of its judgements and biases. In spite of the law being on their side, at least partially now, they still have to face a lot of stigma, just because the society assumes every individual is heterosexual. To counter this, The Times Of India has launched a campaign called 'Times Out & Proud', through which the paper will offer the LGBTQIA+ community free space in its classifieds for three months. © TOI The campaign started on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, and it aims at making daily life easier for the LGBTQIA+ community. The campaign is based on the rightful belief that sexual orientation and gender identities should not decide the stature of a person in society. © TOI Since newspaper is one of the most basic and primary public spaces which is shared by every section of the society equally, the Times Of India decided that it's time to aggressively take progressive steps towards inclusion. As part of the campaign, the Times of India is offering the LGBTQIA+ community a free space in the classifieds section for three months. This is a safe space for the members of the LGBTQIA+ community to not just look for a house, a job or a partner, but a medium through which they can share their stories publicly. The classifieds are simply a platform that the campaign provides to the LGBTQIA+ community to voice their stories. © TOI The campaign has been launched through a film featuring the lives and struggles of different people from the LGBTQIA+ community. One can visit the campaign page to watch the film and join the campaign as well. Hopefully, this step will prove to be a path-changer, when it comes to creating awareness and bringing in non-judgemental attitudes. © TOI If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or want to support a LGBTQIA+ friend or relative, share your stories in 50 words to outandproud@timesgroup.com, and it will be printed free of cost for the first three months. To join the movement and to share your thoughts and views, use the hashtag #TimesOutAndProud Watch the campaign video here:
  12. Studying Twins is Science's love affair from the dawn of time simply because of the near perfect genetic and physical match. This is ideal for scientists to conduct studies for comparing changes in human responses to change in environments. NASA did a similar test with an astronaut who also happens to have a twin brother. Scott Kelly, U.S. astronaut suggested to NASA that he and his identical twin brother, Mark could be a subject of a study of long-term space flight. © NASA This gave scientists and researchers the unique opportunity to monitor two brothers with an identical gene footprint in two very different environments. One in space and one 250 miles below it. Results have finally been publishing and the findings are shocking. Scott experienced changes that his brother Mark did not. These changes went away six months after Scott returned to earth; however, none of these changes posed any health differences. The results are now out and these were the results according to the paper: © Reuters "In this paper, they showed there was no statistically significant difference in genetic modifications they could find between the twin in the space station with the one on the ground," said Gronostajski, the director of the University of New York at Buffalo's Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics graduate program. What were the changes? © NASA Scientists and doctors took many measurements from the Astronaut's body at molecular levels. Such a study has never been done before with such accuracy. Kelly also sent his blood samples to Earth via return capsules. Here are the changes that Kelly's body faced after a year in space: 1. 91.3 percent of Scott's gene activity returned to normal after six months landing back on Earth. The genes never mutated rather respond to the environment. 2. Flu Vaccine has the same effect in Space. 3. Kelly's end caps on Chromosomes got longer in space but returned to normal form upon his return. 4. One category of bacteria in Scott's gut increased, while another decreased; the ratio returned to normal after the mission. We don't yet whether this was harmful or not as more research is needed. 5. Kelly aged faster in terms of physical appearance than his Twin Brother in that period.
  13. While India is going to experience the first phase of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the Modi government makes it a lot easier for people of the nation to decide whom to bring back in to power. © Twitter Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on the 27th of March that India shot down a live satellite in space, achieving a pertinent place in the global space power, while also displaying India's anti-satellite missile capability(ASAT). Obviously this action wasn't aimed against any country but it did determine the fact that India is now amongst the countries that are recognised as global space superpowers. © Twitter The PM took to addressing the nation on TV, radio and social media with a speech about the happenstance at noon on Wednesday, and said the following: "In the journey of every nation, there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today," 'Mission Shakti', as it's called, was a difficult target to achieve but it was completely successful within 3 minutes of the launch, the PM added. The idea was not to release the missile to violate any international laws and treaty and that the satellite was pre-determined target orbiting at an altitude of 300km. There were no other details divulged so we don't know who owned the satellite but there is assurance this wasn't a threat of any sort, to anyone. #MissionShakti is special for 2 reasons: (1) India is only the 4th country to acquire such a specialised & modern capability. (2) Entire effort is indigenous. India stands tall as a space power! It will make India stronger, even more secure and will further peace and harmony. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 27 March 2019 While the PM addresses the nation about the mission, it's actually the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) that is behind this project and they deserve all the credit that has gone into making this mission possible in the first place. The main aim behind the mission is to strengthen the country's overall security and with the success of this very mission, we have become the fourth country after US, Russia and China to acquire such specialised and modern technology. © DRDO "This is a fantastic capability to have and it gives us a deterrence in case our adversaries try to militarise the space or try to prevent us from using our existing space capabilities." said the former DRDO chief Dr VK Saraswat, in an interview with a news agency. #MissionShakti was a highly complex one, conducted at extremely high speed with remarkable precision. It shows the remarkable dexterity of India's outstanding scientists and the success of our space programme. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 27 March 2019 What Is 'Mission Shakti'? While we're happy at achieving such a technologically advanced feat, most of us might be a bit confused about what Mission Shakti entails exactly. Well, we're here to clear out any and every misunderstanding you may have. © Twitter Mission Shakti is primarily a mission that has a team of scientists, who successfully launched a missile at a satellite in low-earth orbit. The anti-satellite (ASAT)that was released into space, hit the mark and destroyed the existing satellite. The missile launched, completed the entire operation in about 3 minutes and it was created by DRDO entirely, for security purposes. . @DefenceMinIndia congratulates the scientists of @isro and @DRDO_India in developing and demonstrating ASAT capabilities. We are proud of you and wish you more glories in future.@PMOIndia @nsitharaman @DefenceMinIndia@PIB_India — Defence Spokesperson (@SpokespersonMoD) 27 March 2019 Former DRDO Chief & NITI Aayog member Dr VK Saraswat on anti-satellite weapon A-SAT: If today you want to have the deterrence capability that if adversaries, that means nation across the world, want to militarise the space, India has the technological capability to match them pic.twitter.com/4XcAp4iUDd — ANI (@ANI) 27 March 2019 What Are ASATs? ASATs are anti-satellite weapons that are specifically designed to destroy satellites during warfare, although they haven't been used during war yet and have only been demonstrated so far, to show force and power. Back in 2010, the then director-general and scientific advisor of DRDO, has said India has the capability to integrate ASATs to neutralise satellites in low-earth orbits. While speculations for developing ASATs to test them out have been ongoing since 2011, on 27th March 2019, the first one was tested to destroy a pre-determined target, making ASATs a success in Indian space technology. © Reuters Other countries with the same technology have already tested their ASATs in space. While US tested it back in 2008, by launching an ASAT to destroy its own satellite, which was decaying in orbit and they were successful in destroying it. China tested theirs in 2007 and had successfully destroyed a weather satellite using a SC-19 ASAT. The non-functional satellite was orbiting at an altitude 865 KM before it was destroyed. Lastly, Russia tested theirs in 2015 and again in 2016 and they have been successfully testing and launching ASAT missiles. While the DRDO chairman talks about DRDOs success by saying : "We have mastered anti-satellite capability and we have today shown that we can hit satellites at long ranges with a few centimeters accuracy," we acknowledge the great extent of work India has put in for the launch, we would also like to throw some light on why the mission is particularly special for space technology advancements in terms of security, for the country. Why Is Mission Shakti Special? There are numerous reasons why Mission Shakti has been given the importance it deserves. One of the prominent ones is that India is now amidst the league of superpowers who have the capability to ward off any threat from a spatial point of view. While China, Russia and the USA are pursuing anti-satellite weapons to a great extent, space has actually become a harsh concern to pursue and India's role in making counter-space capabilities critical by launching an ASAT, is quite significant. © Twitter Apart from Mission Shakti helping to strengthen defence technologies and safeguarding our space assets, the ASAT weapon will likely become an important tool for the armed forces, over the next few decades. Apart from the entire effort has been indigenous and it's a moment of pride to view a spectacular advancement in this generation. Here's hoping India's cohesively strategically work towards it's security continues with utmost honour and success.

  15. India's space agency ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is planning to launch 32 missions this year and it includes a lunar landing mission called the Chandrayaan-2. “The year 2019 promises to be challenging to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) community with 32 planned missions,” chairman K Sivan said in a message to his employees on New Year on Tuesday. © ISRO / GSAT-19 Launch The most significant of these launches will be the Rs 800 crore lunar mission, a successor to the Chandrayaan-1 lunar probe. The Chandrayaan-2 will be a land rover, and the first one to traverse near the lunar south pole. The wheeled rover will move on the lunar surface and will perform on-site chemical analysis. India is also working on its first human space mission to the Moon that is currently slated for 2021-22. Last year, Prime Minister Modi announced the program and will enable ISRO to finally accomplish its dream of undertaking a human spaceflight programme. © ISRO / LVM-3 So far, the space agency has successfully tested the escape system of the crew module and are confident they shall be able to pursue the human mission within the current timelines. ISRO regularly launches various satellites that benefit the country as well as help in churning profits thanks to overseas clients. The GSAT-20 mission will provide sufficient bandwidth requirement to fulfill Digital India scheme remotely as well as pushing in-flight connectivity. © ISRO It will be the first ISRO-made satellite to attempt to move from a geostationary transfer orbit to a geosynchronous orbit using electric propulsion. 2019 also marks the birth centenary of the founding father of ISRO, Vikram Sarabhai. The agency will host a year-long celebration starting August 12 with national and international events as well as fellowships and scholarships for university students. © ISRO / ADMIRE ISRO is also researching on reusable rockets and it's being called ADMIRE. According to Times of India, ISRO has plans for a test site and a test as well. These are expected to be off of its usual launchpad in Sriharikota, although the dates are unknown. Details about ADMIRE remain under the wraps for now, but according to a few schematics, it'll be a two-stage rocket slightly smaller than the PSLV. (With inputs from IANS)
  16. We don't know about your travel plans, but three Indians are currently making headlines for their week-long trip that is worth a whopping 10,000 crores. via GIPHY We're not talking about a sequel of 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. We're talking about ISRO's most ambitious project, Gaganyaan, whose budget just got a nod of approval by the government today. The three astronauts will be sent into space by 2022. Twitter (For Representation) Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced the same at a press conference today, "The Union Cabinet has approved the Gaganyaan project under which a three-member crew will be sent to space for at least seven days." Cabinet approves indigenous human spaceflight programme; Gaganyaan programme to carry 3 member crew for minimum 7 days in space at a total cost of Rs 10k crores. — ANI (@ANI) December 28, 2018 This is said to be India's first manned mission to space and the Rs. 10,000 crore budget includes the cost of technology development, flight hardware and essential infrastructure elements. The announcement of launching a manned mission to space by 2022, was announced on August 15, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his 72nd Independence Day speech. He also mentioned that with this project, India will become the fourth nation in the league after Russia, the United States and China.
  17. NASA is already really cool. I mean, anything related to space will always be cool and I recently discovered something new that makes NASA even cooler. (Sorry for the overuse of the word 'cool') With every International Space Station mission, there's a group photo of the crew but who says they have to be boring? No one wants to see the same posed picture for every mission so the astronauts got a little creative and made the group pictures super cool and only a little cringey. Recreating an iconic movie poster for every mission, seems like the astronauts had a lot of fun adding a little more pop culture to space. Here's 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy's' almost exact recreation. © NASA The 'Armageddon' poster with just a few more people. © NASA 'Harry Potter', all grown up. © NASA Almost exact, down to the barefeet. © NASA This one's a little awkward, I agree. © YouTube This one is so cheesy, I can't even, © YouTube 'Transformers' looks pretty cool, I have to give it to them. © NASA And last, the beloved TV show 'Firefly'. © NASA
  18. Iron Man is up there in space right now…stranded in some dark corner…counting days to his death…alone and miserable, with depleting levels of oxygen. via GIPHY You are a damn liar if you tell me that something in you did not crack when you saw Tony's sunken face and broken spirit, issuing his last message to the love of his life- Pepper Pots. via GIPHY Obviously, Marvel fans rallied together and sent out cries for help to whoever they could. From Elon Musk to NASA, the message was being circulated loud and clear- Rescue Tony Stark. Please. via GIPHY NASA swung into action and responded to the call by listing out ways in which Tony could be rescued. Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can't communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq — NASA (@NASA) December 9, 2018 The THermal Operations and Resource (THOR) officer is truly one of Mission Control's mightiest heroes.

  19. I will not lie, but watching Tony Stark issue his dying message to Pepper Pots in the 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer, from some corner in space nearly broke my heart. via GIPHY His sunken face and broken spirit thanks to no food and water, and the depleting oxygen levels is going to haunt me for a long, long time. via GIPHY Obviously, Marvel fans, including me, set things in motion by figuring out ways in which our beloved Tony could be rescued. via GIPHY The most obvious option is Pepper somehow getting his message and sending all possible help imaginable, and then there is the possibility of Captain Marvel managing to spot a stranded Tony in space. via GIPHY But, unknown to the rest of the world, NASA was also working on a plan to respond to Tony's distress call! Well, there is some hope in my heart now that Tony might not just 'drift away' in the dark corners of space, and actually be rescued! via GIPHY NASA, being its genius self, has listed out some ways in which Tony can be saved and the Avengers better be listening up if they want Iron Man back in the squad to kick Thanos' ass!

  20. Now that Usain Bolt has retired, is he considering an alternate career option of becoming an astronaut? View this post on Instagram Zero Gravity is a out of this world experience ððð¾ð¾ @ghmumm #DareWinCelebrate #NextVictory A post shared by Usain St.Leo Bolt (@usainbolt) on Sep 12, 2018 at 11:51am PDT This picture will make you believe that, but it's not true. While we don't know if he'll ever become an astronaut, there's one thing we're sure about that he will be the fastest man wherever he goes. Why do we say that? Because he just defeated French astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy (the man in blue suit) in a zero-gravity race. The man in black suit is CEO of Novespace and French Interior designer Octave de Gaulle. © Reuters For those scratching their heads in confusion. Bolt wasn't really launched in space, the Olympics champ boarded a special Airbus Zero G plane, where you can experience what it feels like to be in zero gravity. © Reuters Bolt celebrated his victory, not with his signature pose, but by sipping champagne floating in the air. Reportedly, this champagne is crafted by Mumm, for astronauts to enjoy in space. © Reuters In fact, this champagne is designed keeping future space tourism in mind. Clearly, these people are living and dreaming about a world in 3018 and we are sitting waiting watching videos of alien invasion. © Reuters The 32-year-old reportedly felt like a "kid in a candy store" after spending some quality time floating in zero-gravity.

  21. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his live address to the nation on its 72nd Independence Day, announced that the country will be sending its first manned space mission by 2022. The mission will be called Gaganyaan and will put India in the league with countries like the US, Russia, and China who have been able to pull off a manned space mission. © ISRO The Indian Space Research Organisation, better known as ISRO, plans to send three Indian astronauts into space and the first mission is set to take place within 40 months from now. It is estimated the mission will cost $1.28 billion or Rs 90 crores. The first phase of the mission will involve deploying the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III (GSLV MK III) which also host a crew of trees into a low earth orbit. The mission is expected to last five to seven days. The GSLV MK III is India's most powerful rocket and was first used last year in June. The rocket was used to deliver a GSAT-19 satellite into orbit to provide internet access. © ISRO ISRO plans to launch the rocket from Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh from the same space launch station that was used for the GSLV MK III launch last year. The same space station was used to launch the Polar Satellite mission that delivered a record-breaking 104 satellites into orbit. The plan is not set in stone as of now as the GSLV MK III nor the GSLV MK-II have been tested for flight with humans. ISRO also told The Times of India that it is still looking for locations for a possible landing site. The landing site needs to have no habitation around them for a safe landing. Source: NDTV
  22. I'm pretty sure if given an opportunity, no one in this world would ever pass up the chance to go to space, no one. But, space exploration is not that much of a reality yet, and it just reminds me of this one Tumblr post. Very relatable, of course. But, space travel might be possible soon, and when I say soon, I mean in just a couple of years. And, of course, the world's richest man will probably make it happen. Reportedly, Jeff Bezos' rocket company Blue Origin, plans to start charging interested passengers for its first trips into space next year and the price will be about $200,000 to $300,000, or Rs. 1.36 crore to 2.05 crore. So cheap, right? That's such a bargain, I'm so impressed by Jeff. Reuters Okay, all jokes aside, space travel is such a cool thing, so obviously you'll have to pay a lot, A LOT, for it. People who were waiting for the cost of a ticket – and who can actually afford it – on Blue Origin's New Shepard space vehicle finally have some answers through two anonymous sources, who are employees of Blue Origin. Last month, executives of the company shared at a business conference that they are planning test flights with passengers on the New Shepard soon, and then will start selling the tickets next year. Reuters According to Reuters, the New Shepard is “designed to autonomously fly six passengers more than 62 miles (100 km) above Earth into suborbital space, high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet before the pressurized capsule returns to earth under parachutes.” Reuters Apparently, Blue Origin has already completed eight test flights on New Shepard of the vertical take-off and landing, but none of them had any passengers aboard. But, two of the tests did have a test dummy named “Mannequin Skywalker.” Tbh, I prefer the name, Starman. The only thing left to see now, is who will win the race for space travel – Elon Musk, Richard Branson or Jeff Bezos. Source – Reuters
