Presented on Halloween (October 31st) at Stack Overflow’s 2016 Remote Meetup in Philadelphia. #PhillyCheeseStack If you want to try landing the shuttle for yourself for fun, try F-Sim http://www.f-sim.com/ (I have no affiliation... just a fan). Sorry about the autofocus (we disabled it in later talks). Me running around on stage didn't help. As always, send complaints to Steve. If you're interested in more details on reentry and landing, I also wrote an answer on Stack Exchange Aviation: http://...

As NASA's Cassini spacecraft made its first-ever dive through the gap between Saturn and its rings on April 26, 2017, one of its imaging cameras took a series of rapid-fire images that were used to make this movie sequence. The video begins with a view of the vortex at Saturn's north pole, then heads past the outer boundary of the planet's hexagon-shaped jet stream and continues further southward. The movie sequence of Cassini images was produced by Kunio Sayanagi and John Blalock of Hampton Uni...

Secrets lie deep within Jupiter, shrouded in the solar system's strongest magnetic field and most lethal radiation belts. On July 4, 2016, NASA's Juno spacecraft will plunge into uncharted territory, entering orbit around the gas giant and passing closer than any spacecraft before. Juno will see Jupiter for what it really is, but first it must pass the trial of orbit insertion. For more information: http://www.nasa.gov/juno and http://missionjuno.swri.edu

in NASA, Science and Research
Using actual New Horizons data and digital elevation models of Pluto and its largest moon Charon, mission scientists have created flyover movies that offer spectacular new perspectives of the many unusual features that were discovered and which have reshaped our views of the Pluto system – from a vantage point even closer than the spacecraft itself. The exciting flight over Charon begins high over the hemisphere New Horizons saw on its closest approach, then descends over the deep, wide canyon o...

An animation showing how Jupiter appeared to NASA's Juno spacecraft when its JunoCam camera was imaging Jupiter at approximately 13:13:40 on February 2, 2017. The animation is based on the images obtained by JunoCam at this time. Due to the spacecraft's spin the camera sweeps across Jupiter's disc and is able to image a large area over a period of several seconds. For clarity this animation is slowed down by a factor of 1.8.Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/MSSS/Björn Jónsson
