  • Journey to the Edge of the Universe - Full HD 1080p

    1:29:51

    National Geographic presents the first accurate non-stop voyage from Earth to the edge of the Universe using a single, unbroken shot through the use of spectacular CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) technology.

    Building on images taken from the Hubble telescope, Journey to the Edge of the Universe explores the science and history behind the distant celestial bodies in the solar system.

    This spectacular, epic voyage across the cosmos, takes us from the Earth, past the Moon and our neighboring planets, out of our Solar System, to the nearest stars, nebulae and galaxies and beyond - right to the edge of the Universe itself.

    When you finish this video, you will walk away from it with an awareness that you never had before, of the unseen astronomically massive universe that we float around on like a spec of dust in the ocean.

    This video takes you on a journey through the universe as if you are watching a Sci Fi adventure. Yet you constantly have to remind yourself that what you're seeing is really out there.

    Our planet Earth’s radius is estimated to be about 6371 kilometers, but I doubt that this matters to you. Since an average person has nothing to compare these scales and distances to, they can hardly imagine them accurately. They're so broad that it's difficult to comprehend them. But let's give it a shot.
    Consider our Earth to be the size of a tennis ball, and reducing all other dimensions to a specified scale, we get the following illustrative figures: the Sun would be about 1 km away from the tennis ball and would appear as a sphere with a diameter of a five-story house. Isn't it impressive? But that's not all: our galaxy's biggest stars have a diameter of around 2500 times that of the Sun. In our case, such a star will have the size of 3 diameters of the actual size of the Earth! Please keep in mind that the Earth is the size of a tennis ball! Nevertheless, even on such a small scale, the distance to the closest star is difficult to comprehend since it is around 220 thousand kilometers or roughly half of the distance to the Moon.

  • The Oort Cloud: Crash Course Astronomy #22

    11:41

    Now that we’re done with the planets, asteroid belt, and comets, we’re heading to the outskirts of the solar system. Out past Neptune are vast reservoirs of icy bodies that can become comets if they get poked into the inner solar system. The Kuiper Belt is a donut shape aligned with the plane of the solar system; the scattered disk is more eccentric and is the source of short period comets; and the Oort Cloud which surrounds the solar system out to great distances is the source of long-period comets. These bodies all probably formed closer into the Sun, and got flung out to the solar system’s suburbs by gravitational interactions with the outer planets.

  • The Voyage To Pluto - Full Documentary

    45:32

    New Horizons is a NASA space probe launched to study the dwarf planet Pluto, its natural satellites and one or two Kuiper Belt objects, depending on which are in position to be explored. Part of the New Frontiers program, the mission was approved in 2001 following the cancellation of the Pluto Fast Flyby and Pluto Kuiper Express. The mission profile was proposed by a team led by principal investigator Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute. After several delays on the launch site, New Horizons was launched on 19 January 2006 from Cape Canaveral. Launched directly into an Earth-and-solar-escape trajectory with an Earth-relative velocity of about 16.26 km/s (58,536 km/h; 36,373 mph), it set the record for the highest velocity of a human-made object from Earth. New Horizons should perform a flyby of the Pluto system on 14 July 2015.

  • A Colorful ‘Landing’ on Pluto

    1:48

    What would it be like to actually land on Pluto? This movie was made from more than 100 images taken by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft over six weeks of approach and close flyby in the summer of 2015. The video offers a trip down onto the surface of Pluto -- starting with a distant view of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon -- and leading up to an eventual ride in for a landing on the shoreline of Pluto's informally named Sputnik Planitia.
    To create a movie that makes viewers feel as if they’re diving into Pluto, mission scientists had to interpolate some of the panchromatic (black and white) frames based on what they know Pluto looks like to make it as smooth and seamless as possible. Low-resolution color from the Ralph color camera aboard New Horizons was then draped over the frames to give the best available, actual color simulation of what it would look like to descend from high altitude to Pluto’s surface.
    After a 9.5-year voyage covering more than three billion miles, New Horizons flew through the Pluto system on July 14, 2015, coming within 7,800 miles (12,500 kilometers) of Pluto. Carrying powerful telescopic cameras that could spot features smaller than a football field, New Horizons sent back hundreds of images of Pluto and its moons that show how dynamic and fascinating their surfaces are.

  • Exploring Ultima Thule: humanity’s next frontier

    1:13:35

    NASA's New Horizons made history when it flew by Kuiper Belt object 2014 MU69, nicknamed 'Ultima Thule', on New Year's Day of this year. Today, even though only 10% of the scientific data that the spacecraft collected has been sent to Earth, New Horizons has provided an amazing glimpse into the primordial solar system and revealed that Ultima Thule is the first contact binary object ever observed “in the wild” where it formed and in a largely unmodified state since its birth. High resolution images and the first comprehensive compositional spectroscopy data are now in-hand with the science team and many more scientific results will no doubt soon be forthcoming.

    To discuss the key results of this successful flyby and the future of the mission, we invited Alan Stern, planetary scientist at Southwest Research Institute and the Principal Investigator of NASA's New Horizons mission who will join us remotely via video-conferencing. Two Senior Research Scientists from our own SETI Institute who are part of the mission will participate in this discussion as well. Mark Showalter is a Fellow of the Institute who led the New Horizons risk assessment team before the flyby, and Ross Beyer, also a member of the New Horizons Geology and Geophysics team, who is helping to understand the 3D shape of MU69.

    9. What Is The Kuiper Belt?
    Despite it being a major part of our solar system, there are many who honestly don't understand the grand scale and scope of the Kuiper Belt. So allow us to give you some perspective on the matter.
    The Kuiper Belt is a circumstellar disc in the outer Solar System, extending from the orbit of Neptune (at 30 AU) to approximately 50 AU from the Sun. It is similar to the asteroid belt, but is far larger—20 times as wide and 20 to 200 times as massive.
    Like the asteroid belt, it consists mainly of small bodies or remnants from when the Solar System formed. While many asteroids are composed primarily of rock and metal, most Kuiper belt objects are composed largely of frozen volatiles (termed ices), such as methane, ammonia and water.
    The Kuiper belt is home to three officially recognized dwarf planets: Pluto, Haumea and Makemake. Some of the Solar System's moons, such as Neptune's Triton and Saturn's Phoebe, may have originated in the region.
    In many respects, the Kuiper Belt is the end of our solar system in terms of things like the physical objects that are there and reachable. The edge of the solar system is a slightly different matter as that would either be the Heliosphere (if you go by magnetic fields) or the Oort Cloud, which is where the suns' gravity reaches the end of its influence.
    But either way, the Kuiper Belt is a major part of our solar system in the literal and figurative sense. Which is rather interesting when you think about it because for a very long time we didn't understand what was truly in that realm of space as a whole.
    8. The Discovery Of The Kuiper Belt
    To truly understand the Kuiper Belt, we have to dive into something you're very familiar with, Pluto.
    After the discovery of Pluto in 1930, many speculated that it might not be alone. The region now called the Kuiper belt was hypothesized in various forms for decades. It was only in 1992 that the first direct evidence for its existence was found. The number and variety of prior speculations on the nature of the Kuiper belt have led to continued uncertainty as to who deserves credit for first proposing it.
    But let's go back to the beginning and just break it down from there, shall we?
    The first astronomer to suggest the existence of a trans-Neptunian population was Frederick C. Leonard. Soon after Pluto's discovery by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930, Leonard pondered whether it was not likely that in Pluto there has come to light the first of a series of ultra-Neptunian bodies, the remaining members of which still await discovery but which are destined eventually to be detected.
    That same year, astronomer Armin O. Leuschner suggested that Pluto may be one of many long-period planetary objects yet to be discovered.
    This is fascinating for all sorts of reasons, not the least of which is that the discovery of Pluto should have been a finite discovery, or one that led to more study of the planet and what it could mean as a whole. Yet many scientists looked upon it and wondered if it was telling us everything we needed to know about the region.
    In 1943, in the Journal of the British Astronomical Association, Kenneth Edgeworth hypothesized that, in the region beyond Neptune, the material within the primordial solar nebula was too widely spaced to condense into planets, and so rather condensed into a myriad of smaller bodies.
    From this he concluded that the outer region of the solar system, beyond the orbits of the planets, is occupied by a very large number of comparatively small bodies and that, from time to time, one of their number wanders from its own sphere and appears as an occasional visitor to the inner solar system, becoming a comet.
    That's not a bad way to describe what the Kuiper Belt really is, and he was right that by modern classifications, the various items in the belt weren't able to go and become fully-fledged planets. But more on that in a bit.

  • Nasa Documentary

    1:22:56

    Who does NASA rely on to execute one of the most ambitious and challenging ground astronomy expeditions ever conducted? Embassy Dakar, of course! This documentary, produced for NASA TV, tells the story of NASA’s New Horizons mission to successfully conduct a December 31, 2018, flyby of the asteroid Ultima Thule, a city-sized object located beyond Pluto in the Kuiper Belt and the most distant object NASA has ever studied up close. It highlights the key role played by Embassy Dakar and Senegalese partners to make this mission a success.

  • NASAs New Horizons Spacecraft: Getting to Pluto

    56:43

    In NASA'a second televised briefings on Tuesday, April 14, plans and upcoming activities about the agency’s mission to Pluto that will make the first-ever close flyby of the dwarf planet on July 14 were briefed.

    Briefers described the mission’s goals and context, scientific objectives and encounter plans – including what images can be expected and when.

    New Horizons already has covered more than 3 billion miles since it launched on Jan. 19, 2006. The spacecraft will pass Pluto at a speed of 31,000 mph taking thousands of images and making a wide range of science observations. At a distance of nearly 4 billion miles from Earth at flyby, it will take approximately 4.5 hours for data to reach Earth.

    Participants for the 2:20-3:30 p.m. discussion were:

    - James Green, director of Planetary Science, NASA Headquarters
    - Glen Fountain, New Horizons Project Manager, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland
    - Hal Weaver, New Horizons Project Scientist, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland
    - Alan Stern, New Horizons Principal Investigator, Southwest Research Institute, Boulder, Colorado

  • Pluto in a Minute: How Did Pluto Get So Far Away?

    1:36

    What’s cool about Pluto? Get a quick peek at the latest science in this daily update from NASA’s New Horizons mission, on track for a flight past Pluto on July 14, 2015.

    How does a planet so small and so far from the Sun have an atmosphere? This is Pluto in a Minute.
    Pluto’s orbit actually crosses Neptune’s, so for about two decades of every 248 Earth year orbit Pluto makes around the Sun, it’s inside the orbit of Neptune.
    It turns out Neptune has a huge effect on Pluto’s orbit, and the two bodies are actually in resonance with one another: for every two orbits Pluto makes around the Sun, Pluto makes three. And scientists think Neptune is actually the reason Pluto is where it is.
    One dynamic model of the solar system presented in the 1990s suggested that the planet actually formed closer to the Sun than they are now. It’s possible under this model that Pluto formed at around 30 AU.
    In the mid-2000s, another model was presented called the Nice model suggested that Pluto could have formed as close (to the Sun) as 15 AU. With all these huge gas giants orbiting so closely together, their gravity eventually threw this system into chaos. The planets’ orbits were flung further out from the Sun and all the small bodies were also flung further out. At some point, Pluto and Neptune became locked together in this resonance.
    So the question is: If Pluto formed closer to the Sun, how close was it? The data from New Horizons will doubtlessly shed some light on this question, but in the meantime if you want to know more about Pluto be sure to check out the New Horizons websites and tweet your questions using the hashtag #PlutoFlyBy. And of course, come back tomorrow for more Pluto in a Minute.


  • New Horizons Extreme Close-Up of Pluto’s Surface

    1:36

    This is the most detailed view of Pluto’s terrain you’ll see for a very long time. This mosaic strip – extending across the hemisphere that faced the New Horizons spacecraft as it flew past Pluto on July 14, 2015 – now includes all of the highest-resolution images taken by the NASA probe. With a resolution of about 260 feet (80 meters) per pixel, the mosaic affords New Horizons scientists and the public the best opportunity to examine the fine details of the various types of terrain on Pluto, and determine the processes that formed and shaped them.

    The width of the strip ranges from more than 55 miles (90 kilometers) at its northern end to about 45 miles (75 kilometers) at its southern point. The pictures in the mosaic were obtained by New Horizons’ Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) approximately 9,850 miles (15,850 kilometers) from Pluto, shortly before New Horizons’ closest approach.

  • WHAT WAS THE LAST THING SEEN BY NEW HORIZONS ON PLUTO?

    11:22

    ➥ Telegram -
    ➥ Subscribe -

    19 January 2006. The New Horizons interplanetary space probe took off from the surface of our Earth on board an Atlas 5 rocket. Just a year later the spacecraft performed a gravity boost maneuvre near Jupiter which helped it along to reach its final destination. 9 years after that, the space probe reached the end of its planned route. And on 14 July 2015, New Horizons flew by the largest dwarf planet ever discovered in the Solar System, Pluto, beaming back several thousand images of this celestial body and its moons.

    magine a future spacecraft following New Horizons’ trailblazing path to Pluto, but instead of flying past its target, the next visitor touches down in the midst of tall mountains on the icy plains of Pluto’s heart.

    There’s no need to wait for that fantasy trip, thanks to new video produced by New Horizons scientists. Made from more than 100 New Horizons images taken over six weeks of approach and close flyby, the video offers a “trip” to Pluto. It starts with a distant spacecraft’s view of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon – closing the distance day by day – with a dramatic “landing” on the shoreline of Pluto’s frozen plains.

    “Just over a year ago, Pluto was just a dot in the distance,” said New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute, Boulder, Colorado. “This video shows what it would be like to ride aboard an approaching spacecraft and see Pluto grow to become a world, and then to swoop down over its spectacular terrains as if we were approaching some future landing.”

  • Vigorous Pluto: New Horizons Mission Reveals Plutos Surface as Geologically Active

    7:31

    NASA's New Horizons probe performed the first-ever flyby of Pluto in July 2015. Washington University's William McKinnon is one of the scientists involved in the mission. After studying the data, McKinnon published remarkable findings that surpassed everyone's expectations about the dwarf planet. McKinnon explains how Pluto’s surface is surprisingly young and geologically active. A large section of Pluto’s nitrogen ice surface is renewed by a process called convection.
