You Are The Sun- Solar System Necklace
Hi everyone, I apologize for the lack of updates over the past couple months, I’ve been really busy. I start classes at southwest minnesota state university monday, so I still probably will be too busy to post all the time. if you’d like to be post just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be more than happy to invite you. We also accept submissions, there’s a link on the page. All I ask is that everything is linked to it’s original source in some way, and has a description of what it is (just the name is fine obviously)
alright then. to infinity and beyond.
How Big Are You? - Star Size Comparison
This black and white image is the first photo ever taken from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd Martian day, or sol, of its mission. (March 8, 2004)
The image is actually a mosaic of photos taken by the rover’s navigation camera showing a broad view of the sky and an image taken by the rover’s panoramic camera of Earth. The contrast in the panoramic camera image was increased two times to make Earth easier to see. The inset shows a combination of four panoramic camera images zoomed in on Earth. The arrow points to Earth. Earth was too faint to be detected in images taken with the panoramic camera’s color filters.

Internal structure of a red giant star. Increased radiation pressure from that shell around the star’s core is what’s thought to make stars expand into red giants. Red giants have hotter cores which power higher rates of fusion, causing red giants to have hundreds to thousands of times the luminosity they had as main sequence stars.
It was ejected from the International Space Station on February 3, 2006. It carried an amateur radio beacon that was activated in the two meter band. Using a simple police scanner or ham radio, you could listen to a disembodied spacesuit circling Earth. On September 7, 2006, at 16:00 GMT, Suitsat re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere over the Southern Ocean at 110.4° East latitude and 46.3° South longitude.
