The JSON feed that carries the latest weather data appears to have stopped updating 10 days ago. Whether that's because the rover stopped sending data, or because of a bug in the software that creates the feed, I can't tell.
Hopefully the problem will be resolved and we'll start getting new data soon.
Asteroid Bennu je vesmírný kámen, u kterého je největší pravděpodobnost, že v příštích 200 letech narazí do Země. Mise NASA OSIRIS-REx nám pomůže chránit se.

Fletcher: "I'm simply not comfortable with those letters, something is missing."
Low: "Well yes, the cross stroke is gone from the letter A."
Fletcher: "Yes, and that bothers me."
Fletcher: (long pause) "I just don't feel we are getting our money's worth!"

This would be an interesting option and the first non-experimental use of such a solution. Although LOFTID is currently floating in the pond at the residence @torybruno , the test results were very promising.
Asked what happens if #govt shuts down, Lori Glaze says sample will remain protected and safe. Disruptive to plans, but samples have waited 4 billion yrs to be analyzed & can wait!
Bottom line: everything's looking great. Go/no-go decision early Sunday morning for capsule separation based on assuring landing accuracy.

This weekend is the return of an asteroid sample NASA collected about 200 million miles away in 2020. Getting the 8 ounces or so of asteroid rock will be historic, if all goes as planned…and the stress is giving the lead scientist strange, vivid dreams….
It’s crucial to understand more about the population of near-Earth #asteroids ☄️ such as Bennu that may be on an eventual collision 💥 course with our #planet 🌍. A better grasp of their composition and #orbits is key in predicting which asteroids may have the closest approaches to #Earth and when, as well as developing methods of deflecting these asteroids https://edition.cnn.com/2023/09/21/world/nasa-osiris-rex-asteroid-sample-return-scn/index.html

Bodenproben vom Mars: Prüfkomission übt deutliche Kritik an Vorgehen der NASA

• 6 possible landing sites for the Sample Return Lander (#SRL)
• A full cache of 33 samples

We all know how this ends.
A Nasa spacecraft is on course to deliver material from an asteroid to Earth – here’s what we could learn
Well... this is cool.
And so we've reached #Flight60 🚁 !
#Ingenuity will fly again on Monday, Sept 25, 2023, to the northern part of the rocky area where Mandu Wall lies, about 160m WSW of Jurabi Point, as seen on the map. And will do so in a record breaking speed of 8 m/s!
The flight path and landing shown on the map are guesses.
I enjoyed “It’s Quieter in the Twilight” on Prime. There was less about the purpose of the mission and what it had discovered in its nearly 50 year history than I’d hoped, but it was a love letter to the people who have dedicated their career to it.
How does #Perseverance manage to drive on the rough Martian terrain and achieve record speeds?
Tyler Del Sesto has worked on the software for Perseverance’s AutoNav for seven years. He used to think that sometimes the obstacles placed before Perseverance’s Earthly twin OPTIMISM during testing in the Mars Yard at #NASA ’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory went a little overboard. He changed his mind after Snowdrift Peak.
Don’t miss our Live Coverage of the arrival of the OSIRIS-REx sample return capsule on Earth. The OSIRIS-REx Mission collected samples from the Asteroid Bennu and supplied a capsule that returns these samples to Earth. The capsule will land in Utah.

However impressive the physical hardware such as the Saturn V rocket, all the modules and all cutting-edge technologies that were invented to make the #Apollo program possible, I still think that some of the most impressive work was done around the #software that ran on the Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC). Some of the highlights:
• RTOS operating system with batch job scheduler with co-operative scheduling.
• Virtual Machine (*1) to expand the primitive assembly of the AGC to enable complex operations such as: double precision trigonometry, vector arithmetic and matrix calculations. This implementation reduced the size of applications since most common operations would be executed as subroutines. Think of this as extending the CPU with microcode implemented opcodes.
• Flexible user interface with relatively easy adoption for common use patterns, while also allowing direct access to all memory and banging the metal if need be (as it turns out was needed during Apollo 14 mission *2).
• All the necessary software to actually needed for operations stored in 36,864 words of ROM.
The reliability requirements guided the design processes which in turn set requirements for the programming and testing techniques, which were then largely developed on the spot. I can only imagine the excitement you must have felt to having been involved in the process of creating these things and then seeing the moon landings take place several years later.
*1) It really isn't a virtualization in the modern sense. An software extended CPU would be more precise description perhaps.
*2) The issue with Apollo 14 was that the Lunar Module AGC would get false readings from a suspected faulty switch, constantly triggering the abort signal. If it would have happened during descent to the moon surface the abort would have triggered an automated return program, eliminating successful moon landing and ruining the mission. The software was indeed hardwired (ROM), so there was no way to disable the abort check. What could be done was to poke RAM in a way that the program thought that the abort process had already been initiated, making it avoid triggering it again. It did require some well-timed inputs from the astronauts however, since some of the poking had to be done within certain time window to avoid b0rking some other programs during the descent. The hack worked, and the LEM landed successfully.
Soooo! This weekend, #NASA's #OSIRISREx mission is returning to Earth with a scoop of material from asteroid Bennu! This will allow the first comparative study of asteroids, as the NASA and #JAXA Hayabusa2 teams are combining studies. Comparing with a 2nd sample is like... GOLD for theories of planet formation!
Annnnnnnd if you want to see an asteroid sample up close n' personal, the first international public exhibits of asteroid Ryugu grains have begun!
Edit: The new abrasion is called "Amherst Point", you can read more on it and the new Margin Campaign here: https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/mission/status/482/within-the-margin/
A few days ago on Sol 911, @NASAPersevere arrived at her new location in the Margin Carbonate Unit and captured this stunning panorama. 🧵
In just a few days, on 24 September, it will deliver the asteroid sample back to Earth.
This is a complicated manoeuvre. The spacecraft will not land, but will release instead the asteroid probe via a capsule.
Here is how it will all work:
Parker Solar Probe passes through a coronal mass ejection.
“NASA is hiding proof of aliens!” has to be one of the funniest takes ever.
NASA is comprised almost entirely of nerds like many of us watching Star Trek and Doctor Who and shit.
If NASA had proof of alien life they’d be throwing a massive kegger on top of the Johnson Space Center and submitting a budget to Congress for eleventy trillion dollars.
If you were standing on Saturn, and looking towards Earth...

Good evening. It's 9PM, Thursday, 14th September. The headlines: Devastating floods in #Libya feared to have killed 20,000 people. Russian pilot attempted to shoot down RAF aircraft. #NASA found no evidence of extra-terrestrial origin in UAP study. NHS waiting list reduction is uncertain, says Sunak. Labour plans to combat trafficking gangs. #BBC #News
Agreed, and I say this as a life long fan of Space and the possibility of Aliens, but I actually read what the scientists are saying and not a bunch of grifters telling us what we WANT to hear.
Grow the fuck up, learn about Science, the Fermi Paradox, how BIG the universe is and be in awe of that.
