What's Up for August 2014

NASA (Aug. 1, 2014) — Go outside to see Venus and Jupiter at dawn, Saturn and Mars at dusk. No telescope required! Plus the annual Perseid meteor shower is in full swing now through the 17th. The shower peaks the night of August 12-13, but the bright moon that night will likely interfere with viewing some of the fainter meteors. The Perseid shower occurs each year when Earth travels through a trail of dusty particles left behind by comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Video provided by NASA

Space Research Hotline to the Moon

Deutsche Welle (Jan. 7, 2013) — Despite funding being scarce, Europe still has grand plans to make it to the Moon and Mars. The first goal is to build an outpost on the Moon to facilitate further trips into space. But such a station would have to be contactable at all times. Space researchers in Stuttgart are working out how to set up a sustained radio connection. They hope to position communication satellites at a spot between the Moon and the Earth where the gravitational forces of the two celestial bodies balance out.
