Space Missions 2013: NASA, SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, Cygnus & Others Have Big Plans For New Year

1a Supernova RemnantThis image shows the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy in infrared light as seen by the Herschel Space Observatory, a European Space Agency-led mission with important NASA contributions, and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. In the instruments' combined data, this nearby dwarf galaxy looks like a fiery, circular explosion. Rather than fire, however, those ribbons are actually giant ripples of dust spanning tens or hundreds of light-years. Significant fields of star formation are noticeable in the center, just left of center and at right. The brightest center-left region is called 30 Doradus, or the Tarantula Nebula, for its appearance in visible light.

The Helix nebulaThis enhanced-color image shows sand dunes trapped in an impact crater in Noachis Terra, Mars. Dunes and sand ripples of various shapes and sizes display the natural beauty created by physical processes. The area covered in the image is about six-tenths of a mile (1 kilometer) across. Sand dunes are among the most widespread wind-formed features on Mars. Their distribution and shapes are affected by changes in wind direction and wind strength. Patterns of dune erosion and deposition provide insight into the sedimentary history of the surrounding terrain.

This image obtained by the framing camera on NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows the south pole of the giant asteroid Vesta.Pacman Nebula Scientists are discussing whether the circular structure that covers most of this image originated by a collision with another asteroid, or by internal processes early in the asteroid's history. Images in higher resolution from Dawn's lowered orbit might help answer that question. The image was recorded with the framing camera aboard NASA's Dawn spacecraft from a distance of about 1, 700 miles (2, 700 kilometers). The image resolution is about 260 meters per pixel.

This undated photo shows a classic type 1a supernova remnant. Researchers Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riess of the United States and US-Australian Brian Schmidt won the 2011 Nobel Physics Prize on October 4, 2011 for their research on supernovae.

    • Like WhiteKnightOne, WK2 is made of carbon composites -- it's the world's largest all carbon-composite aircraft. It's powered by four Pratt and Whitney PW308A turbo jet engines and has two crew compartments on either side of the point where SS2 attaches to its underside. WK2 can lift and launch SS2 as well as other payloads, such as small unmanned rockets capable of carrying small satellites into low Earth orbit. WK2 will also serve as a training vehicle for the SS2 astronauts and pilots, training them for weightlessness by flying parabolic flight paths (see How Zero-gravity Flights Wor…
