The Starshade is NASA’s latest design in a cutting-edge effort to take pictures of planets orbiting stars far from the sun.The flower-shaped spacecraft’s goal is to make detecting and imaging exoplanets much, much easier. Despite the fact that astronomers have been indirectly detecting exoplanets for more than 15 years, actually taking a picture of one has been an incredibly difficult task thanks to the often-blinding lights of their parent stars.In conjunction with a space-based telescope, NASA’s starshade will position itself precisely between the telescope and the star that’s being observed, blocking the starlight before it even reaches the telescope’s mirrors. Light coming from exoplanets orbiting the star would be visible and astronomers would finally be able to take actual pictures of them.These images could provide clues as to whether or not such distant worlds could support life as we know it.Dr. Stuart Shaklan, JPL’s lead engineer on the starshade project, says “The flower-shaped petals are part of what makes the starshade so effective. The shape of the petals, when seen from far away, creates a softer edge that causes less bending of light waves. Less light bending means that the starshade shadow is very dark, so the telescope can take images of the planets without being overwhelmed by starlight.”Princeton researcher and principal investigator of the starshade project Professor Jeremy Kasdin has assembled a team that will create a smaller scale starshade at Princeton to verify that the design blocks the light as predicted by the computer simulations. Also, to measure its accuracy, a team at JPL will test the deployment of a near-full scale starshade system in the lab.Tell Congress that you support doubling NASA’s funding so that they can bring these projects to light faster and without budget worries.Take action now: http://penny4nasa.org/take-actionRead more: http://planetquest.jpl.nasa.gov/video/15http://sploid.gizmodo.com/nasas-prettiest-spaceship-yet-will-take-actual-photos-1548786806

It has been suspected for a long time that under Enceladus’ icy crust laid a vast ocean. Finally, the news we were waiting for: the Cassini orbiter has detected signals of a hidden ocean beneath the 19 to 25 miles (30 – 40 km) of ice. The sea itself is at least 6 miles (10 km) deep and can be thought of as a larger Lake Superior.Enceladus has also been known to have geysers, similar to those recently discovered on Europa, which contain salts as well as organic molecules such as methane and ethane. What’s interesting is that Enceladus experiences tidal flexing as it orbits Saturn. This flexing is thought to generate heat at the poles. Furthermore, scientists believe that there’s enough heat at the South Pole to melt the ice and push the seawater up to the various cracks in the surface. This is very exciting for astrobiologists because it means that the sea could be in contact with organic-rich silicate material from the moon’s internal rocky core, which is just at the right temperature for sustaining life. This discovery is truly setting the stage for the future and it makes a compelling case to study Enceladus in more detail.Read more here: http://io9.com/weve-found-a-hidden-ocean-on-enceladus-that-may-harbor-1557622077Show your support for NASA, so that we can send more orbiters and uncover the amazing mysteries waiting for us.

Anonymous asked: In which country did you guys had craziest/best was fans on a concert ?


Answer:

i have to answer this in a few different ways.

i think as a band our german fans have truly supported us the most. we were so overwhelmed last year when we went to europe on a headline tour and sold out almost all the german shows even after they were moved to bigger venues. the rock am ring festival we just played in the summer was hands down the most people that have ever watched us play.

the single most amazing show for me was when we played the groezrock festival in 2011. at the time it was the most people that had ever turned up just to watch us play and with no barrier it was just absolute chaos for the whole set.

the best unexpected show i think would have to be last year in greece. we’ve been lucky to play some pretty exotic places like south africa, vietnam, and hawaii and the scenes there are really passionate but pretty small. but our show in athens was absolutely insane. the room was packed and kids were going wild and singing along.

when we played white light in sydney at the metro last may the crowd sang the guitar lead in the bridge so loud it was the only thing you could hear in the whole room. its hard for me to even write about it here without a lump in my throat.

i grew up in boston so when we played warped tour there in 2012 it was very cool to be able to have so many of my family and friends be able to see what i was up to during all that time away from home. i hoped that the show would be a good representation but in reality it blew my mind. we played last and all day i was nervous. when we finally took the stage it seemed like people were just pouring into the area where our stage was. we played shiner and aaron went into the crowd and got a circle pit all the way around the sound tent. and then it just never closed up. there were kids moshing in this huge fucking donut and i couldn’t stop staring and smiling. it was the biggest and best crowd we played to the whole summer.

as great as all of these are, i still think our absolute best shows have been at home in southern california. the shows we played at chain reaction with deserters and betrayal and the secret show at aladdin jr’s will always be nearly impossible to top.
