Fare astronomia con piccoli telescopi (Le Stelle)

Non sono necessariamente richiesti strumenti mastodontici according to produrre risultati scientificamente validi nel campo dell’astronomia. Anche l’astrofilo dotato di un piccolo telescopio, con un diametro di soli 8-9 cm, può contribuire alla scienza del cielo realizzando utili osservazioni del Sole, della Luna, dei pianeti, delle comete, degli asteroidi, delle stelle doppie o variabili, delle nebulose e degli ammassi stellari.

Here, the eclipse starts to become visible as the Moon moves past. 53 Zombie stars 8 Space’s evil eye Fomalhaut is a white dwarf about twice the mass of the Sun, but take a look at this image from the Hubble Space Telescope and you might think that you’re looking straight into the Eye of Sauron from The Lord Of The Rings.

The decision to design three iterations of the same rocket may seem a strange one, but it’s emblematic of the desire to take manned missions beyond the Moon. “For programmes like SLS, the designs solidify as they progress through the detailed design phase,” says Nester on whether these designs are set in stone from the start or shift as new developments are made. “Based on when the system’s blocks are projected to be needed, the different blocks are at different phases in the typical programme life cycle.

It’s so big in fact, engineers such as Nester have to use bicycles just to reach different divisions. And many of those divisions are now using new advancements (and enduring procedures) to create the most resilient and affordable materials for everything from the rocket’s outer shell to its internal circuitry. “One of the most important considerations is understanding the environments in which the system will need to operate and designing the system to operate in those environments,” explains Nester.
