Since this has become the default thread for space related stuff I thought I'd share here, this video that I found recently while exploring YouTube.

The largest Hubble image ever released! Truly an amazing video. Watch it in the highest resolution your computer can support!

Here is an open-shutter shot of it as it passed over Pittsburgh a few nights ago. It looks like it just shows up out of nowhere, but that's where it was when I opened the shutter.
The blurriness of the stars isn't due to camera shake, but rather the rotation of the earth. It fades from right to left (direction of travel) because it was losing ambient sunlight as it approached the horizon.
Far out, man! :cool2:

I haven't had any clear sky, but I want a track of this freaking North Korean "satellite".


It was tumbling from launch, out of control, but it passed directly over the superbowl. :surprise:


If it was a nuke, it could have done a lot of damage. :frown2:

It will be there for years; there are ways to tell if it has 'material' aboard.
They won't likely tell us that, tho. :grin2:

There's a SpaceX Flight in about 10 minutes; always fun to watch.

Search for "spacex livestream" on youtube. :)

So much for that, two scrubbed launches in as many days. Cheaper than firing it off when there's a known issue though. :)

True; it really is dangerous when it comes that close.

Did y'all see this?
