NASA : Liftoff at NASA's 16th Annual Student Launch Challenge .- El despegue en el Challenge Lanzamiento Anual de Estudiantes 16 de la NASA

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., Uno de los cohetes de alta potencia decenas despega el 16 de abril de 2016, durante la exposición anual de la NASA Lanzamiento 16 de estudiantes, se mantenía cerca de Centro de Vuelo Espacial Marshall en Huntsville, Alabama, a partir de abril 13-16.
Casi el 50 secundaria y preparatoria, universidad y la universidad los equipos de 22 estados compitió en el desafío, lo que demuestra la ingeniería aeroespacial y conocimientos avanzados relacionados con las actividades y programas del mundo real en el camino de la NASA a Marte. Equipos pasado los últimos ocho meses de construcción y prueba de cohetes diseñadas para volar a una altitud de una milla, implementar un sistema automatizado de paracaídas, y lo suficientemente seguro para la reutilización de la tierra, mientras que otros equipos también diseñaron cargas científicas para la recogida de datos durante el vuelo.
ganadores preliminares para el lanzamiento del Estudiante se anunciaron durante una entrega de premios 16 de abril en el Espacio de EE.UU. y Rocket Center en Huntsville, y organizadas por Orbital ATK. Los ganadores globales del Estudiante lanzamiento se darán a conocer a principios de mayo, ya que los cálculos finales siguen siendo objeto de examen para la exactitud.

Liftoff of one of dozens of high-powered rockets during the 16th annual Student Launch challenge, April 16, near NASA Marshall
One of dozens of high-powered rockets lifts off on April 16, 2016, during NASA's 16th annual Student Launch challenge, held near Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama from April 13-16.
Nearly 50 middle and high school, college and university teams from 22 states competed in the challenge, demonstrating advanced aerospace and engineering skills related to real-world activities and programs on NASA's Journey to Mars. Teams spent the past eight months building and testing rockets designed to fly to an altitude of one mile, deploy an automated parachute system, and land safe enough for reuse, while other teams also designed scientific payloads for data collection during flight.
Preliminary winners for Student Launch were announced during an awards ceremony April 16, at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, and hosted by Orbital ATK. The overall winners of Student Launch will be announced in early May, as the final calculations are still under review for accuracy.

April 7, 1991, Deployment of Breakthrough Gamma-ray Observatory


Observatory with solar arrays on either side drifts away from shuttle Atlantis into space
Twenty-five years ago, NASA launched the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, an astronomical satellite that transformed our knowledge of the high-energy sky. Over its nine-year lifetime, Compton produced the first-ever all-sky survey in gamma rays, the most energetic and penetrating form of light, discovered hundreds of new sources and unveiled a universe that was unexpectedly dynamic and diverse.
In this view, taken on April 7, 1991, from the aft flight deck window of space shuttle Atlantis, the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory is released by the shuttle's remote manipulator system. Visible on the observatory as it drifts away are the four complement instruments: the Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment (bottom); Imaging Compton Telescope (COMPTEL) (center); Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment (OSSE) (top); and Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) (at four corners).
