#introductions
Software "engineer" by trade and study. #Space enthusiast, loves #scifi. Also looking to pivot away from pure software, and into #spacetech, #biotech or #cleantech. Or in any other way contribute something meaningful back to this world. #Emacs is my OS. I may have made a #nyancat for it once.


I still have more of these poster sets in stock.

Originally designed for my daughter, they are a large "Portrait of the Solar System" in a "world-focused" presentation.

The set of 5 19x27in (46x69cm) posters compose a 8ft (2m) wide mosaic, or can be framed separately.

$60/set or $15/single from:

Boosts appreciated. It'd be nice to sell these.

This is a set of five 19x27" (48x69cm) posters, presenting the solar system as a collection of worlds, including Sun, planets, dwarf planets, asteroids, and moons, with an emphasis on the solid body objects you could visit (theoretically and radiation allowing).

It wasn't practical to keep all the objects to the same scale, but I made effort to minimize the different scales shown and make the differences clear.

As a mosaic, they take up about 8-ft (2.4m) of wall space. Or you can frame them separately and spread them around a room (as for a classroom).

I still have quite a few on the shelf, available for sale in our Anansi Spaceworks "bookstore". 

Designed by Terry Hancock (me), using free NASA imagery and data.

#introductions

Hi everyone! Just migrated my old account @sirduck@mastodon.social here, to post more specifically about #privacy #foss #security #tech and issues around the world in general. I'm a student and love learning more about tech, #linux and anything really, I have plenty more interests like #space #science #photography #games #movies #nature and of course I enjoy any and all memes

As you can see I suck at introductions but I'm happy to be here :)

For more cozy content you can follow me on @spacelizard


Let me introduce myself. #introduction
Spacecraft engineer (generalist), rare poster, lazy grumpy snail interested in #art #comics #space #spacecraft and possibly related matters.
Prefer to lurk behind, make life better, bring hell on Earth, and other daily routines.


My 1st asteroid occultation! ⭐️🪨🔭

Asteroid 2000 RF103 is a 28.3 km diameter Jupiter Trojan asteroid discovered in 2000 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth-Object Search (LONEOS) program. There was only a 3% chance I'd observe this occultation given the width of the uncertainty region and the size of the asteroid.

I'm usually a pretty private person, but since I've started following so many other people I'm thinking its about time to do an #introduction so no one thinks I'm a bot!

Hi, I'm Jon! I'm currently wrapping up my MSc in electrical engineering. I've got far too many hobbies, but I think thats a good problem to have.

I'm interested in #FOSS, #electronics, #astronomy, #space, and #cooking.

I can't promise I'll post much, but regardless I'm happy to be a part of the #Fediverse!


NASA's Artemis 1 moon rocket passes crucial fueling test despite leak

If checks in the VAB go smoothly, it's possible NASA will target the schedule's earliest long mission opportunity, which would kick off with a launch on Aug. 29. However, a long mission window lasting five consecutive days exists between Sept. 2 and Sept. 6, and may serve as a more favorable option. In any case, NASA officials are not likely to commit to a launch date prior to SLS inspections in the VAB, which won't begin until later this month.

#introduction

By day, I transform satellite image data into topographic maps of other planets. On here, I'm interested in hearing from people who do creative things with #geospatial data, especially in outer #space, and would like to contribute to that community as well.

I'm still clinging to Douglas Rushkoff's ideas from his book "Cyberia" about the intersection of art and technology, and what the Web can be.

SpaceX's Starship will be ready for 1st orbital flight in July, Elon Musk says

"Starship will be ready to fly next month. I was in the high bay & mega bay late last night reviewing progress," the billionaire entrepreneur said via Twitter today (June 14).

"We will have a second Starship stack ready to fly in August and then monthly thereafter," Musk added in another tweet.

Hardware readiness won't guarantee a July Starship flight, however; SpaceX still needs to secure a launch license from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). And getting one won't necessarily be easy;

#Reintroduction post, let's go!

🌳 I'm Sarah, I live on the edge of Epping Forest in London, UK with my partner & our cat Ditto.

📖 I'm interested in #writing & have had a few #scifi #fantasy & #horror short stories published recently.

📚 I love #comics (mostly #DC & indie) & occasionally do some colouring.

🎨 I like #painting #abstract #art & love seeing all your #mastoart!

ARTEMIS 1 TARGETS AUG. 29 LAUNCH DATE

NASA's moon megarocket is scheduled to fly its first mission as soon as late August, pending testing and reviews of all the components of Artemis 1.

The agency announced today (July 20) that it has three "placeholder" launch dates for the uncrewed test flight around the moon: Aug. 29, Sept. 2 and Sept. 5.

“The Outer Space Treaty of 1967 created an obligation under international law to avoid the harmful contamination of outer space, the moon and other celestial bodies…”

Meanwhile, Elon Musk: “oi, I’ve got an idea, why don’t I launch my fucking car into space for shits, giggles, and PR?”

Everyone: “ooh, he’s so smart, he will save us all”

I guess I add to this very poor #introduction post some things I enjoy?

Right now I'm doing a #rollerskating challenge where I am trying to skate every day for 365 days. Today will be Day 112.

I love #origami #painting #writing (hoping to actually have the mental capacity for #nanowrimo this year) #reading playing the #ukulele #singing #technology #scifi #gaming (PC and tabletop) #DnD #space and just in general living my best #geek / #nerd (yes both) life


I really enjoyed this explanation of what we can learn from the pretty pictures and what comes next. https://youtu.be/7K2J-cO_tOI #astronomy #space #JWST


NASA will try again to fuel Artemis 1 moon rocket in June as launch slips to August

Artemis 1 will send an uncrewed Orion on a roughly month-long journey around the moon. The mission — the first in NASA's Artemis program of lunar exploration — is designed to ensure that both SLS and Orion are ready for crewed flights.

If all goes well with Artemis 1, Artemis 2 will send astronauts around the moon in 2024 and Artemis 3 will land a crew near the lunar south pole in 2025 or thereabouts.

#introduction

Hi! My name's Silab. I'm 21 years old, #filipino, #agender, #asexual, and #sapphic. My politics are left-leaning. I study university #biology.

I'm really into talking about #shows (especially #sitcoms like #mythicquest, #wwdits, and #tedlasso). My current obsession is #dnd5e and other #ttrpg (especially #dimension20 #d20 and #naddpod). I have a thing for #space and cosmic horror, as well as #cats.

I'm really new here, but I hope I last! Excited to meet you all 💜


👋 everyone! I wanted to take a moment and re-introduce myself.

I'm a queer space nerd (he/him) 🧑🏻‍🚀 searching for exoplanets 🌎 asteroids 🪨 & maybe even aliens 👽 with my backyard telescope 🔭

I'm also working towards a certificate in Astroimaging and Observatory Operation and post regularly about all things astronomy and space -- and about my 2 cats, Oliver and Ellie.

Happy to be here!

I had a hard time picking the piece I wanted to share first, but I think I decided on a good one :artblackcat:
Say hi to Galactic Cat!

# # # # # # #
A digital watercolor painting of a cat. The setting is an abstract take on space, with speckles of purples, blues, pinks and greens mixed together. Stylized gold stars are randomly scattered about.
The cat is actually a black outline of a cat, leaping across the bottom right part of the image. It has a white glow around the outline, and its eyes glow pink.

I've been lurking around here for a while, trying to get the hang of "the fediverse". Thought I should at least introduce myself before I go follow a bunch of more people ;)

There are so many interesting instances. Each seems to have its own, unique local timeline that I enjoy reading.
