STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH

STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: October 26, 2004PASADENA, Calif. - NASA's Cassini spacecraft streaked by Saturn's smoggy moon Titan today, targeted to pass within just 750 miles of the planet-sized satellite to give scientists their first detailed glimpse of a world that, until now, has been shrouded in mystery.Moving through space at some 14,000 mph, Cassini made its closest approach to Titan at 12:44 p.m. EDT, using the moon's gravity to change its trajectory slightly for another Titan flyby Dec. 13.Today's encounter, the first of 45 Titan flybys planned over the course of Cassini's four-year primary mission, occurred while the $3 billion spacecraft was out of contact with flight controllers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.The high-gain dish antenna normally used to communicate with Earth was aimed instead at Titan for cloud-piercing synthetic aperture radar observations. Those images, along with other radar data and high-resolution visible, infrared and ultraviolet observations, should resolve long standing questions about Titan, including whether the moon harbors standing lakes or pools of liquid ethane and hydrocarbon sludge.But Cassini will not turn its high-gain antenna back toward Earth and begin playing back recorded data until late this evening. It will take those radio signals, traveling 186,000 miles per second, one hour and 14 minutes to reach NASA's Deep Space Network antennas some 826 million miles away.The first low-resolution pictures are expected to begin showing up around 9:40 p.m. High-resolution imagery will reach Earth starting around 12:51 a.m. Wednesday, with narrow-angle resolutions of a tenth of a mile per pixel. That will improve to 17 feet per pixel when the highest resolution pictures flow in around 2:40 a.m.Data playback will end at 5:22 a.m. and Cassini will make this orbit's closest approach to Saturn at 7:33 a.m.A timeline of major events that includes the number of images expected from the narrow- and wide-angle cameras (in EDT; resolution in statute miles) is available .Along with collecting priceless imagery and data about Titan, today's encounter, known as Titan A or TA for short, also collected critical atmospheric data that will be used to determine just how close Cassini can safely pass during upcoming flybys.That same data also will shed light on what Cassini's Huygens probe can expect when it slams into the atmosphere of Titan Jan. 14.Built by the European Space Agency, Huygens will descend by parachute all the way to the moon's surface, using a suite of instruments to probe its environment. Data will be relayed back to Earth by Cassini, which will be flying past at the same time.The density of Titan's atmosphere, however, is a critical factor in the Huygens' descent. The probe is scheduled to be released from Cassini on Christmas Eve and depending on what today's TA flyby data show, engineers could elect to make slight changes to its trajectory.The data were considered so vital that engineers programmed playback through two DSN ground stations to ensure successful capture.Along with characterizing the moon's atmosphere, Cassini also was programmed to photograph the Huygens landing site at a resolution of .62 miles per pixel, hopefully providing insights into what the probe can expect when it reaches the surface in January.Cassini braked into orbit around Saturn the night of June 30, firing its main engine for a nerve-wracking 96.4 minutes. Another long rocket firing in late August raised the low point of Cassini's orbit and set the stage for an extended voyage of discovery.Equipped with state-of-the-art telescopes, an imaging radar system and a battery of other powerful instruments, Cassini will spend at least four years orbiting the sixth planet from the sun, studying its rings in unprecedented detail, making high-resolution movies of its windy atmosphere, charting its magnetic field and mapping a host of icy moons.Titan will get special treatment. Bigger than Mercury and Pluto, Titan is the only moon in the solar system with a thick atmosphere, one in which hydrocarbons fall as rain and liquid ethane pools on its ultra-cold surface. Or so astronomers believe.TITAN FACTS AND FIGURES Discovered by...........Christiaan Huygens, 1655Mass (Earth=1)..........0.02259Radius..................1,600 milesDiameter................3,200 milesDistance from Saturn....745,000 milesRotation period.........15.94 daysOrbital period..........15.94 daysOrbital inclination.....0.33 degreesAtmospheric pressure....1.6 times Earth'sTemperature.............-290 FahrenheitDaylight at surface.....1/1000 the intensity of sunlight on EarthIn a pre-launch news conference seven years ago, Jonathan Lunine, a University of Arizona physicist and a member of the Cassini science team, provided an educated guess about what today's flyby and the Huygens probe might reveal."Imagine a world that's smaller than Mars and bigger than the planet Mercury, where the air is four times denser at its surface than the air in this room and the surface pressure is about the same as you'd experience at the bottom of a neighborhood swimming pool," he said. "On that world, the distant sun is never seen and at high noon, things are no brighter than a partly moonlit night on the Earth."Because of its great distance, the cold is so enormous that water is always frozen out of the atmosphere. Nitrogen is nearly so, but not quite. And the simplest organic molecule, methane, is there to take the place of water as a cloud former, possibly a rain maker and maybe even the stuff of lakes or seas of hydrocarbons."The methane is lofted hundreds of miles above the surface of this world," Lunine said before Cassini's launch in 1997. "It's cracked open by sunlight and cosmic rays and a menagerie of more complicated organics is produced from the methane and these then float down to the surface to accumulate over time, perhaps to depths of hundreds of meters or more. Volcanism and impacts shape the surface and provide energy to make ever more complex organic molecules in a planet-wide tapestry that is an organic chemist's dream."What I have described to you is Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system, nearly the largest. It was partly revealed to us by Voyager 1 in 1980. Through its many instruments, Voyager discovered and characterized a dense atmosphere around this cold world. Yet ... Voyager's cameras could not penetrate the organic haze and so we still do not know what awaits Cassini-Huygens at the end of its journey."But in the years since Cassini's launch, optical and radar observations from Earth have given scientists at least a hint of what the spacecraft might find. Scientists are convinced lakes or small oceans of liquid hydrocarbons exist on Titan, but not a globe-spanning sea. One way or the other, Cassini and Huygens should resolve the matter."Titan is almost certainly not the home of life today," Lunine said. "But the organic chemical cycles that go on may constitute a chemical laboratory for replaying some of the steps that led to life on Earth. Titan is in some ways the closest analogue we have to the Earth's environment before life began and this makes Titan very important."Ares 1-X PatchThe official embroidered patch for the Ares 1-X rocket test flight, is available for purchase.Apollo CollageThis beautiful one piece set features the Apollo program emblem surrounded by the individual mission logos.Expedition 21The official embroidered patch for the International Space Station Expedition 21 crew is now available from our stores.Hubble PatchThe official embroidered patch for mission STS-125, the space shuttle's last planned service call to the Hubble Space Telescope, is available for purchase. | | | | 2014 Spaceflight Now Inc.Cassini getting ever closer to colorful Saturn CICLOPS/SPACE SCIENCE NEWS RELEASEPosted: June 3, 2004As Cassini coasts into the final month of its nearly seven-year trek, the serene majesty of its destination looms ahead. The spacecraft's cameras are functioning beautifully and continue to return stunning views from Cassini's position, 1.2 billion kilometers (750 million miles) from Earth and now 15.7 million kilometers (9.8 million miles) from Saturn. Credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science InstituteDownload larger image version In this narrow angle camera image from May 21, 2004, the ringed planet displays subtle, multi-hued atmospheric bands, colored by yet undetermined compounds. Cassini mission scientists hope to determine the exact composition of this material. This image also offers a preview of the detailed survey Cassini will conduct on the planet's dazzling rings. Slight differences in color denote both differences in ring particle composition and light scattering properties. Images taken through blue, green and red filters were combined to create this natural color view. The image scale is 132 kilometers (82 miles) per pixel. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the Cassini-Huygens mission for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging team is based at the Space Science Institute, Boulder, Colorado.

I discover and download this game that

I discover and download this game that starts off relatively typical with action adventure style fighting. It's easy to complete and once finished I get sucked into the iridescent sky through an omniscient opening of boney claws and evil air. once there it skips to me warning two family members about this game because I knew it was bad and it also causes a fatal computer virus. I tried deleting the game but it freaked out and a bunch of pop ups came up after I terminated the process and application.But my stubborn family members continue to play and complete it in a sinch, and tHen they get teleported up into the other dimension and suddenly the whole family is there. each of us has a screen showing we passed and made it into this world. except grandpa&grandma were denied entry because only "beautiful People" may enter this world and suddenly we realize wherever we are is not a good place and we are trapped and it is hell.

You still need to be present, not

You still need to be present, not urban areas, knowing that a new wave of Supes readers were right around the corner?WITH THISWEEKs release of "Man of Steel Many military leaders have trained at Western institutions They have the support of secular Egyptians and they are fighting a legitimate battle against the forces of radical Islam which will otherwise engulf Egypt just as they engulfed Iran Although nobody said so explicitly this was clearly the view of the Obama administration in the wake of Secretary of State John F Kerry put it best in an unguarded moment when he was speaking on Pakistani television " all of whom were afraid of a descent into chaos" he declared "In effect they were restoring democracy"The United States and the West should support the Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Morsi may not have been the most effective leader of Egypt but now he is effectively under arrest Never mind that Morsis instincts were anti-liberal or that his clear intention was to place the Muslim Brotherhood in control of Egypts judicial and political institutions We ought to have supported him when he was in power and now that he is out of power his cause is even more important and tortured We should organize ourselves on their behalf and in their defense Both arguments have merit But both also have a central flaw especially when made through tweets sound bites press releases and other nuance-free forms of communication They divide the Egyptian scene into two warring camps Morsi vs the generals secular vs Islamic military vs Brotherhood thus tempting everyone to take sides Which is ridiculous since its none of our business who runs Egypt and we shouldnt be "backing" anybody at all Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel came close to this viewthis week that "Its up to the Egyptian people And they are a large great sovereign nation And it will be their responsibility to sort this out" But neither Hagel nor anyone else in the administration has taken the next logical step True its up to the Egyptian people Also true we shouldnt back one group over another in Egypt or anywhere else Those sorts of political games have won the United States an appalling reputation in the Middle East and elsewhere because they invariably backfire We support the "pro-Americans" ignore their unpopularity and are shocked when they fall Or we support the "modernizers" who then turn out to be dictators and we are shocked when they fall The particularly virulent strain of anti-Americanism in Egypt comes in part from our mostly uncritical support for Egyptian dictators in the past But there is another way to think about all this The United States can and should stand for the rule of law stable institutions and democracy And by "democracy" I mean not just an election organized by the international community but the principle that power should change hands peacefully inclusively and according to a set of rules accepted by all social groups In societies such as Egypt or Syria the advocacy of democracy isnt ideology but common sense The alternative after all is that power changes hands violently that some ethnic or religious groups are left out of the political process and that social discontent remains very high Had the Obama administration thought about Egypt in these terms it might have had a rational intelligible policy over the past several years When Hosni Mubarak was in power we should have pressured him loudly and clearly to hold elections When Morsi was president we should have called on him equally loudly and clearly to share power with other groups to make concessions to minorities to make sure that a flawed constitution was interpreted as fairly as possible Now that the military is in power we should come out loudly and clearly against its coup and use whatever limited influence we have to persuade the generals to return Egypt to constitutional rule It sounds simple but of course it isnt If Kerry can confuse a millions-strong demonstration with "democracy" and if President Obama cant bring himself to use the word "coup" then it will be difficult for this administration to be clear firm and consistent about the events unfolding not only in Egypt but also in Syria Libya and elsewhere around the worldRead more from or We’re not guys who are out on the street,After the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice ended and Riley Cooper and Cary Williams had gone to their neutral corners He was among Post reporters awarded the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. including nuclear weapons and arms control, obviously.Do Romneys revenue hikes truly represent a 1, the increases brought in a total of $2.

You entered: I'm watching the tv show

You entered: I'm watching the tv show "Married with Children". A large group walks in wearing black robes, almost as if they were a cult. They lay down in rows, formation-like, some napping and some awake. I leave the room and that there are two rooms of this formation going on. Before I go to lay down in my bed a girl calls my attention. She appears to be of Latin descent. I climb up to meet her, but I pass someone first. While the Latin girl and I talk we notice another has changed the sheets and covers of her bed to a pink and purple shade. She also equips her own ladder. It's a bunk bed.

I was in a canoe being guided

I was in a canoe being guided by a swan down a river. she took me to a cove with white cliffs and deep green trees. there was a man sitting on the sand at the edge of the sea waiting for me. I got out and sat beside him looking out to sea, I coudnt look at him. He sent me over a red crab holding a red and white stripe lolly pop i took it smiling, I could feel the man smiling and glad i excepted. Suddenly we both heard something above and behind us .We lent our heads back and a gigantic golden eagle radiantly shinning was swooping down it grabbed us both and flew up into the blue golden sky. We were laughing and amazed. The eagle placed us on top of the highest mountain, we danced kissed embarrased then turned into a swirling plume of irradescent vapour. I came out saw a bear with a necklace of red berries around its head it was clapping, I felt shy then the swan appeared and said to me "Just take his hand and fly!" I looked at his hand and slipped mine into it then we took off effortlessly and flew into the blue golden fluffy cloud sky.
