Nasa's most stunning pictures of space Show all For 50 years, NASA has been "suiting up" for spacewalking. The spectacular cosmic pairing of the star Hen — more commonly known as WR — and the nebula M which surrounds it. Nasa's Hubble Space Telescope has unveiled in stunning detail a small section of the Veil Nebula - expanding remains of a massive star that exploded about 8, years ago. It also took caviar, ready for the satellite's inhabitants to celebrate the holidays.
Virts took this photograph of the Gulf of Mexico and U. Gulf Coast at sunset. Nasa celebrated Black Friday by looking into space instead — sharing pictures of black holes. The Orion capsule jetted off into space before heading back a few hours later — having proved that it can be used, one day, to carry humans to Mars.
The Gemini IV crew conducted scientific experiments, including photography of Earth's weather and terrain, for the remainder of their four-day mission following Ed White's historic spacewalk on June 3. This image of an area on the surface of Mars, approximately 1. This near-infrared color image shows a specular reflection, or sunglint, off of a hydrocarbon lake named Kivu Lacus on Saturn's moon Titan. Although Mimas and Pandora, shown here, both orbit Saturn, they are very different moons.
Pandora, "small" by moon standards 50 miles or 81 kilometers across is elongated and irregular in shape. Mimas miles or kilometers across , a "medium-sized" moon, formed into a sphere due to self-gravity imposed by its higher mass. An X1. Regions of space such as this are where new stars are born from a mixture of elements and cosmic dust.
Nasa's Mars Rover Spirit took the first picture from Spirit since problems with communications began a week earlier. The image shows the robotic arm extended to the rock called Adirondack. Nasa astronaut Scott Kelly captured this photograph of the green lights of the aurora from the International Space Station. After all, by sending a spaceship out of our solar system, we are making an effort to de-provincialize, to rise above our nationalistic interests and join a commonwealth of space-faring societies, if one exists. Since all research and technical work on the record had to be accomplished within a period of weeks, we began with a list of the world's most widely spoken languages, which was provided by Dr.

Steven Soter of Cornell. Carl suggested that we record the twenty-five most widely spoken languages. If we were able to accomplish that, and still had time, we would then try to include as many other languages as we could. Steven Soter, and me.
A Comparison of the Representation of the Future of The Matrix and Planet of the Apes
The master table, reproduced on pages through , which shows each of the languages, the speaker's name, their comments in the original language, an English translation, and the real and fractional number of human beings who speak that language, was largely Shirley's idea. We contacted various members of the Cornell language departments, who cooperated with us on very short notice and provided numerous speakers, even though school was ending and many people were leaving for summer vacations.
Other speakers were more difficult to find. After finding such a person, we had to determine whether he or she would be available during the hours when the recording sessions had been scheduled. Even while the recording sessions were going on, we were still trying to find and recruit speakers of languages not yet represented.
Often people waiting to record would suggest names of individuals fluent in the very languages we were looking for. Immediately we called those people, explained the project and our plight, and asked them to come at once. Many people did just that. He personally called friends and member of the Cornell Indian community, explaining the undertaking to them and asked for and received their cooperation.
