Nanu, noch kein Thread zum heute stattfindenden Pluto Flyby der NASA-Raumsonde New Horizons? Jedenfalls sind es jetzt noch exakt 2 Minuten... Big Grin

Hier ein kleiner Fahrplan:

7:30AM - Media Briefing: Arrival at Pluto, Inside the Pluto System & New Horizon's Perilous Path (LIVE on NASA TV)

7:49AM - Pluto closest approach at 12,500 KM (~7,750 MI) at approximately 14 KM/SEC (31,000MI/HR).

8:04AM - Charon closest approach at ~29,000 KM (18,000 MI) at same approximate Pluto flyby speed.

Note: During the half-hour when the spacecraft is the closest to Pluto & Charon, it will take close up pictures at both visible & near-infrared wavelengths. The best pictures of Pluto will depict features as small about 70 M (~230 FT) across - about the size of a football field. The spacecraft will also obtain stereo products that will be used to reconstruct Pluto's topography.

8:51AM - New Horizons flies through the shadow cast by Pluto & observe both the Earth & Sun setting, and then rising through Pluto's atmosphere. It will watch the light from the Sun & pick up radio waves from transmitters on Earth, making measurements that will reveal the composition, structure & thermal profile of Pluto's atmosphere in exquisite detail. The spacecraft will also obtain images of Pluto's night side, illuminated by Charon, which casts about as much light onto Pluto as a quarter Moon on Earth.

10:18AM - New Horizons flies through the shadow cast by Charon & make similar observations as when it passed by Pluto's shadow.

9:02PM - Mission team on Earth receives "phone home" signal from New Horizons to indicate the spacecraft survived the close encounter with the Pluto system.

8:30-9:15PM - NASA TV program: Phone Home, broadcast from APL Mission Control (LIVE on NASA TV)

Hi Andreas,

die Bilder snd be mir schon die Tage vorbei getwittert. Ich finde die Bild absolut hammer hart. Einfach nur unglaublich!
