Science, OpenAccess, publication et scientificité


Cela fait plusieurs années déjà que le mouvement #OpenAccess réclame un accès à tous aux #publications “scientifiques” jusqu’ici majoritairement restreintes à un faible nombre de privilégiés, derrière des #paywalls auxquels même certains chercheurs n’ont pas accès.
Aujourd’hui-même, la Conférence des Présidents d’Universités et le #CNRS demandent la “libre diffusion des publications scientifiques et des fouilles de données à la mesure des enjeux scientifiques”.

A very good start

The first spacewalk to service the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) could not have gone better. Lead spacewalker ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano is imaged here hitching a ride on the International Space Station’s 16-metre long robotic arm to kick off the first of four ventures to service the particle physics detector on 15 November.

While all spacewalks are a carefully planned and detailed affair, the four spacewalks... Show more...
 

Join the future of navigation at ESA’s NAVISP Industry Days








The ability to know where you are and where you’re going is central to today’s society, and will only grow more crucial in future. ESA’s NAVISP R&D programme is building on Europe’s technical accomplishments to develop new future positioning, navigation and timing technologies and services – its annual Industry Days next January will give a snapshot of the programme’s progress.

Using AI to predict Earth’s future








A recent ‘deep learning’ algorithm – despite having no innate knowledge of solar physics – could provide more accurate predictions of how the Sun affects our planet than current models based on scientific understanding.

Luxembourg firm enabling peek inside asteroid

ESA’s Juventas is a tiny spacecraft assigned a very big goal. Small enough to fit in an aircraft carry-on bag, this nanosatellite would be carried to deep space by ESA’s proposed Hera mission, before diving down to perform the very first radar probe into the depths of an asteroid. A specialist Luxembourg-based company is developing the radar electronics to make this happen.

The foreshock in Earth’s magnetic environment






Image:

In this image, Earth is the dot to the left of the image and the large arc around it is our planet’s magnetic bow shock. The swirling pattern to the right is the foreshock region where the solar wind breaks into waves as it encounters reflected particles from the bow shock. The image was created using the Vlasiator model, a computer simulation developed at the University of Helsinki to study Earth’s magnetic interaction with the solar wind.

Hibernating astronauts would need smaller spacecraft








If a sci-fi spaceship does not come with hyperdrive then it is usually fitted with hibernation capsules instead. In movies from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Event Horizon , Alien to Passengers, fictional astronauts get put into ‘suspended animation’ to cross the vastness of space. Now ESA has investigated how real life crew hibernation would impact space mission design.

NASA finds Neptune moons locked in 'dance of avoidance'

Even by the wild standards of the outer solar system, the strange orbits that carry Neptune's two innermost moons are unprecedented, according to newly published research.

Orbital dynamics experts are calling it a "dance of avoidance" performed by the tiny moons Naiad and Thalassa. The two are true partners, orbiting only about 1,150 miles (1,850 kilometers) apart. But they never get that close to each other; Naiad's orbit is tilted and perfectly timed. Every time it passes the slower-moving Thalassa, the two are about 2,200 miles (3,540 kilometers) apart.

Orbital resonance in Neptune’s moons


Phys.com published an article a couple days ago NASA finds Neptune
moons locked in ‘dance of
avoidance’
. The
article is based on the scholarly paper Orbits and resonances of the
regular moons of Neptune
.

The two moons closest to Neptune, named Naiad and Thalassa, orbit at
nearly the same distance, 48,224 km for Naiad and 50,074 km for
Thalassa. However, the moons don’t come as close to each other as you
would expect from looking just at the radii of their orbits.

Although the radii of the orbits differ by 1850 km, the two moons do not
get closer than about 2800 km apart. The reason has to do with the
inclination of the two orbital planes with each other, and a resonance
between their orbital periods. When the moons approach each other,... Show more...
