Hi, I’m Avivah from Indonesia. I live in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. This is “officially my first story in Cosmoquest blog”. It’s a story about my trip to East Java ( I live in West Java).
A couple of times a year the Moon travels across in front of the planet Jupiter. This occurs as the plane of the solar system is roughly in line with the orbit of our moon but each planet and moon has its own little wobble or slight inclination to the plane and every now and then there is a noteworthy conjunction.
It’s here! A brand new citizen science project! Everyone, welcome Mercury Mappers to our happy family. Technically, it is still in “beta” which means that all the site content isn’t in place, but we are so excited to have the data and tools up and running that we’re going ahead and sharing it anyway. This project lets you get a close-up look at the Solar System’s innermost planet through the “eyes” of spacecraft MESSENGER which has been in orbit since [...]
We’ve been hard at work over the last few weeks processing all the data from over 1000 of you volunteers so far. These data have been used to create a poster presentation that has been hanging in the room at NASA Ames amongst other science posters this week at NASA Ames for the Lunar Science Forum. The purpose of this post is to talk a little about some of the results so far. First off, I’m going to talk briefly [...]
This is just a reallyquick post to let you know that I’ve been hard at work this week analyzing all the MoonMappers data and figuring out how we’re going to present what at the NASA Lunar Science Conference in 10 days in Mountain View, CA (at NASA Ames). The poster that I’ll be presenting is going to focus almost exclusively on discussing the results of the Apollo landing site work — specifically, the effects that sun angle has on crater [...]
