Pluto’s interaction with the solar wind is unique, study finds

Astronomy Magazine - Wed, 05/04/2016 - 19:00
Researchers thought that Pluto was characterized more like a comet, which has a large region of gentle slowing of the solar wind, as opposed to the abrupt diversion solar wind encounters at a planet like Mars or Venus, but instead Pluto is a hybrid.

form our perspective looking

RS2 Fora Comments - Tue, 05/03/2016 - 15:43

form our perspective looking into 3d time I believe - if I understand correctly - I can't! All I see is what the effect of the 3d time motion bleeds into our 3d space?

Yes, because the atoms of your retina are localized in space and in time they are spread out, therefore you cannot establish a fixed reference system in time and refer to it in order to form a temporal image when photons strike the atoms of your retina.

That does not mean that you cannot construct an optical or electronic experiment that will form a stationary temporal reference system on the basis of one particle.  EPR entanglement comes to mind here....

Motion means change of

Motion means change of position in 3D space as I observe an object

In RS motion is a much more generalized concept and it does not require objects for its definition and existence.

You should really think what is needed to evaluate a position in 3D extension space, e.g.: touch  &  sight (parallax, intensity, triangulation).
...and whether it is even possible to do that without collisions of any kind.

Would you agree that collisions are superpositions of motions ?  e.g. when a photon collides with a proton...

Ancient Volcanos Point to Extensive Ice on Mars

Astronomy Magazine - Tue, 05/03/2016 - 04:00
Volcanoes erupted beneath an ice sheet on Mars billions of years ago, far from any ice sheet on the Red Planet today, new evidence from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter suggests. The research about these volcanoes helps show there was extensive ice on ancient Mars. It also adds information about an environment combining heat and moisture, which could have provided favorable conditions for microbial life. Sheridan Ackiss of Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, and collaborators used the

Second ExoMars mission moves to next launch opportunity in 2020

Astronomy Magazine - Tue, 05/03/2016 - 04:00
The mission’s board concluded that, taking into account the delays in European and Russian industrial activities and deliveries of the scientific payload, a launch in 2020 would be the best solution.
