Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas giant, and a mammoth, lumpy magnetic field that may indicate it was generated closer to the planet’s surface than previously thought
The aim of the top-secret project A119 was to detonate a nuclear bomb on the Moon. The flash of explosive light would have been faintly visible to people on Earth with their naked eye; an US show of force after the Soviet Union took an early lead in the Space Race
The acceleration of the object equals the gravitational acceleration in vacuum. The mass, size, and shape of the object are not a factor in describing the motion of the object. So all objects, regardless of size or shape or weight, free fall with the same acceleration. Thus in a vacuum, a beach ball falls at the same rate as an airliner!
In 2002, astronomers Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry from Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA) determined that the color of the universe was a slightly beige-ish white. The survey included more than 200,000 galaxies, and measured the spectral range of the light from a large volume of the universe. The hexadecimal RGB value for Cosmic Latte is #FFF8E7
If the project is successful, it could massively cut the cost and danger associated with space trips: cargo usually costs around $22,000 per kilogram with current technologies; using Obayashi's space elevator, the cost would be closer to $200 according to the company
