Hubble's stock will drop drastically once they launch the James Webb telescope. They do need to get another Kepler up there asap though.

How so? James Webb and Hubble have entirely different capabilities.  One is in the IR bands and the other is visible/UV iirc.

This is kind of cool. Shows you which DSN stations are active and the spacecraft they're communicating with.

Two galaxies colliding, awesome.  Got this from an article about supermassive black holes being formed when two big galaxies smash into each other.  Space is cool.

Couldve installed a window wiper.
Aye. Just felt I did it at the same time as you and you came out tops every time. Just in a bad mood now after Pixelhax.

Have to get this out now:

Pixel you're either hacking with the demo, or you're too f***ing good to constantly hammer us to the ground with it every time we play. Starts to take the p*ss a bit. I mean, I don't want you to not enjoy the game, but at the same time I'd quite like to enjoy playing it too.

New Horizons about to do the first ever flyby of a Kuiper Belt object.  This is some awesome s***.

This is the object they're going for:

Done! :frantic:

Quote
While people around the world were celebrating the arrival of 2019, people at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland were hard at work. Billions of miles away, the New Horizons probe was flying past Ultima Thule, a small object in the Kuiper Belt. By Tuesday morning, the hardware had sent back a status report that indicated the flyby went as planned, and New Horizons now has lots of data from Ultima Thule that it will slowly send back to Earth over the coming months. (As explained by the BBC, the enormous distance between Earth and New Horizons means the probe's 15-watt transmitter can manage a data transmission rate of about 1 kilobit per second.)

While we don't yet have any of the data that will tell us details about this relic of the Solar System's formation, images taken during the approach solved one of the mysteries that had arisen as New Horizons closed in. But one of the key questions—is Ultima Thule one object or two?—remains unanswered.

Arse?
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

f***s sake, lads.  Some genuinely amazing news and in typical NO fashion it descends into bum jokes.  Only a matter of time before someone wonders how you'd wipe your arse on a Kuiper Belt object. :lol:

For the record, absolutely fascinated by the interstellar fishing trip, but, find it pointless to talk about it.  You keep going though, I like to read informed posts.  O0

Check out the deep space network next time you're stoned.  They were receiving from Voyager 1 a few minutes ago and the signal was 3x10^-23kW.

That's 0.0000000000000000000003W

edit:  Voyager 1 is one of the ones that has left the solar system

edit 2:  Goldstone now transmitting to New Horizons :frantic:

Considering it was launched in 1977 and was built with 60/70's technology that's impressive as f***.

Never seen that link before, interesting stuff, cheers Loki.
