NASA's TESS Shares First Science Image In Hunt To Find New Worlds

Captures A Wealth Of Stars And Other Objects, Including Systems Previously Known To Have Exoplanets

NASA’s newest planet hunter, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), is now providing valuable data to help scientists discover and study exciting new exoplanets, or planets beyond our solar system. Part of the data from TESS’ initial science orbit includes a detailed picture of the southern sky taken with all four of the spacecraft’s wide-field cameras. This “first light” science image captures a wealth of stars and other objects, including systems previously known to have exoplanets.

Airborne 09.24.18: FAA ReAuth Update, Record Flight, Maggie Taraska Returns

Also: Cathay Pacific Mispaints, Orion's First Service Module, FAA Fly Safe-LOC, Neutron Star

In the wee hours of the start of the weekend a new version of the FAA Reauthorization bill was published... and the news is mixed. The 1200 page document was released September 22nd at 0040ET... to initially mixed reviews. Some initial notes show that this five year bill does not include the draconian Privatization effort that has been aggressively fought by nearly everyone in aviation and the onerous ATC fees levied on EAA and other venues have been dropped. There is also some additional language in support of the Pilot’s Bill of Rights. GA groups are analyzing the 1200 page doc now. And the news for model aviation may be dire... On September 24, 2013, Canadian pilot Alexis Reichert set a new female world record for flight duration in a human-powered rotorcraft by staying airborne for 53 seconds in the Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter. Ratified by FAI, her record-breaking flight

Hubble Uncovers Never-Before-Seen Features Around A Neutron Star

Scientists Still Unsure What Is Causing The Unusual Infrared Light Emission

An unusual infrared light emission from a nearby neutron star detected by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope could indicate new features never before seen. One possibility is that there is a dusty disk surrounding the neutron star; another is that there is an energetic wind coming off the object and slamming into gas in interstellar space the neutron star is plowing through.
