Uncontrolled Satellite Falling From Orbit

  "WASHINGTON – A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and propulsion and could hit the Earth in late February or March, government officials said Saturday.

The satellite, which no longer can be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is classified as secret."

World Wide Star Count Project Results

 

Three months ago I posted The Great World Wide Star Count Project, and here Comes the Results.

"The Star Count team is pleased to announce that citizen scientists from 64 countries submitted a total of 6,624 observations!"

6,624 Observations is a good news… a good step 🙂 , but the bad news is most citizen who had joined are from the same zones. If you see the map above you will notice that Europe and North America submitted more observations compared to the other zones.

Save Astronomy

The British Science & Technology Facilities Council is in trouble and under threat, suffering from large cuts in research funding. Their budget is short by £80 million. The reasons for the cuts aren’t clear (the details we know are on Paul Crowther’s website). There are several factors at work, but the important thing is that this is not the result of astronomers wasting money, but as a result of factors beyond our control. Astronomy is now being hit. World class telescopes and facilities are facing closure. University physics departments will suffer huge cuts.

Find out what will be affected…

I found this message in my inbox month ago, but forgot to post it here. Well you can see what’s going on, and we need your help. If you live in UK, you can help us by writing to your member of parliament urging them to press the government to fill the black hole in STFC’s budget.
