Yeah! The most amazing feature in iPhone 4 is the Gyroscope built-in. Which makes the iPhone 4 Astronomy edition.

I’m including iPhone 4 as one of my AstrO Gears product. Why! Just see below… I will include more features of this gear later on.

Last year Father-Son Team lunched iPhone 4 into Space with weather balloon. They have used an insulated craft, weather balloon, iPhone 4 and a HD video camera to enter the space and film down the whole process. iPhone 4 was used to locate the location of the craft. Check out the video>>>

iPhone in Orbit


Interesting right!

The next surprise is that iPhone 4 this Month will be taken aboard the International Space Station via STS-135 to help conduct ground breaking experiments. Odyssey Space Research LLC, of Houston, TX, has developed an iOS application that will take advantage of the iPhones built-in mechanisms.

The experiments will perform onboard the US. National Laboratory on the International Space Station (ISS)


In an excerpt from their official press release, Odyssey states:

The SpaceLab for iOS app will utilize the innovative features of iPhone 4, including the three-axis gyro, accelerometer, Retina display, cameras and A4 chip, for space-based research. The crew will conduct various experiments to collect data which could one day find use in practical applications, such as the recovery of navigation information for a spacecraft that might be “lost in space.

Four experiments are planned, click on the image above to read more.

As stated by Odyssey Space Research:When the experiments are completed, both iPhones will be returned to Earth. The first opportunity for return will be on a Russian Soyuz vehicle in the fall of 2011. Flight data from the experiments are expected to be collected, analyzed, and then shared via this app on the App Store.

The launch target for STS-135 (Orbiter Atlantis) is set by  July 8, 2011. 🙂

What are you waiting for! Download the application now.

Need an iPhone! It’s available in AstrOceanOmy Store.

The Glory “Send Your Name Around the Earth” Project

Here’s comes another Mission from NASA which you can send your name Around the Earth !

The Glory Mission Will Increase Our Understanding of the Earth’s Energy Balance… Click here to find out more about the mission.

I have already included my name and here’s the certificate. So include yours now and be a part of the first mission dedicated to understanding the effects of aerosols and solar variability on climate by sending your name around the Earth!

The mission is scheduled for Lunch on June 15, 2009.   Send your name now before its too late!

Will the Big Bang test end the world on Wednesday?

"LONDON: If critics are to be believed, the end of the universe will begin coming Wednesday (10/09/2008) when a Welsh miner’s son launches the world’s biggest scientific experiment to know how the universe was born.

The well-known Welshman physicist, Lyn Evans, dubbed Evans the Atom, will this week switch on a giant particle accelerator designed to unlock the secrets of the Big Bang.

On Wednesday, Evans will fire up the Large Hadron Collider, a 17-mile-long doughnut-shaped tunnel that will smash sub-atomic particles together at nearly the speed of light.

Built by the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), the collider lies beneath the French-Swiss border, near the institution’s headquarters in Geneva, at depths ranging from 170 feet to 600 feet.

The aim of the 4.4 billion-pound (over $7.7 billion) experiment is to recreate the conditions that existed a fraction of a second after the Big Bang – the birth of the universe – and provide vital clues to the building blocks of life.

It will track the spray of particles thrown out by collisions in a search for the elusive Higgs Boson, a theoretical entity that supposedly lends weight, or mass, to the elementary particles. So important is this mysterious substance that it has been called the "God Particle".

Scientists also hope to shed some light on the invisible material that exists between particles – dubbed "dark matter" as no one knows what it really is – which make up most of the universe.

But a handful of scientists believe that the experiment could create a shower of unstable black holes that could "eat" the planet from within, and they are launching last-ditch efforts to halt it in the courts.

One of them, Otto Rossler, a retired German chemist, said he feared the experiment may create a devastating quasar – a mass of energy fuelled by black holes – inside the earth. Jets emanating from it would grow and catastrophes such as earthquakes and tsunamis would occur at the points they emerged from the earth.

"The weather will change completely, wiping out life, and very soon the whole planet will be eaten in a magnificent scenario – if you could watch it from the moon. A Biblical Armageddon. Even cloud and fire will form, as it says in the Bible."

He said that attempts were still being made in the European Court of Human Rights to halt the experiment on the grounds that it violated the right to life. The court has, however, already rejected calls for a temporary delay in the project.

Walter Wagner, an American scientist who has been warning about the dangers of particle accelerators for 20 years, is awaiting a ruling on a lawsuit he filed a fortnight ago in his home state of Hawaii.

Evans, however, is dismissive of the "doom-mongers".

"There are thousands of scientists around the world who have been preparing this machine and they know what they are talking about, unlike these guys," he is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail." Article by Venkata Vemuri in London.

Well, here’s another great event which people talk about from years…The greatest experiment yet on Earth History…. Some people/scientists still think that this is a big danger…Why? Well, because it will create a mini Black Holes which could eat us….eeeahhh

NASA to Attempt Historic Solar Sail Deployment‏

"This summer, NASA engineers will try to realize a dream older than the Space Age itself: the deployment of a working solar sail in Earth orbit. The name of the sail is NanoSail-D and it is scheduled for launch onboard a SpaceX Falcon 1 rocket as early as Tomorrow July 29, 2008. " Click here for the full story.

NASA’s Newest Space Telescope Reaches Orbit

"NASA’s Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST for short) left Earth yesterday (11th June 08) onboard a Delta II rocket. "The entire GLAST Team is elated," reports program manager Kevin Grady of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. "The observatory is now on-orbit and all systems continue to operate as planned."

Send Your Name into Space with the Kepler Mission

Send Your Name Into Space! With the Kepler Mission.

"Kepler is NASA’s first mission capable of detecting Earth-size and smaller planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars. The spacecraft is planned to be launched from Kennedy Space Center in February 2009. The spacecraft will be launched into orbit around the Sun, not the Earth, with an orbital period of 372 days. The spacecraft will slowly drift away from the Earth, such that in about 25 years it will be half an Earth orbit away, 300 million kilometers distant from the Earth, passing behind the Sun as viewed from Earth."

"When you submit your name, you may also chose to provide a message of 500 words or less of why you think the mission is important. A copy of the DVD with all of the names and messages will be given to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum." >>> Click here to find more & Submit your Name 🙂

So Hurry Up the deadline date is November 1, 2008. I have already participated 🙂 and here’s my Certificate

In my answer to the question; Why you think the Kepler mission is important? I wrote as following:

In simple words I will say that one of the greatest milestones in Astronomy is to search for life beyond our Solar System, And to do that. First we need to find other planets possible earth size, and Kepler is NASA’s first mission capable of detecting Earth-size and smaller planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars.

And achieving it, is one of our astronomy dream milestones….. So Send Your Name!

This project is an activity in association with the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
