Rocket | Science
Here, it probably IS rocket science. A place for me to discuss astrophysics and space exploration, although other sorts of science, math, and technology are likely to make appearances.

The Large Magellanic Cloud is one of my favourite night sky object viewable from the Southern Hemisphere. At a distance of 163,000 light years from earth LMC is considered an irregular type galaxy and the third closest galaxy to our own Milky Way.For the tech specs of this image, it was shot on a Canon 6D with a Canon 90mm tilt-shift lens, which is such a super sharp lens! The exposure was 10 second shutter at f/3.2 ISO 6400. I had to shoot two single exposure frames to get me and the Large Magellanic Cloud in the one shot, and I stitched them together in Auto Pano Giga.Hope you like the shot and feel free to share!Want to know more?

spaceplasma:

Our Sun constantly emits plasma which moves out in all directions at very high speeds and fills the entire solar system. The complex interaction between the Sun’s plasma atmosphere and its magnetic field gives rise to a wide range of fascinating and spectacular phenomena. The fluctuation of the sun’s magnetic fields can cause a large portion of the outer atmosphere to expand rapidly, spewing a tremendous amount of particles into space. These large eruptions of magnetized plasma are called coronal mass ejections. CMEs are the most spectacular and potentially harmful manifestations of solar activity. Some of these eruptive events accelerate particles to very high energies, high enough to penetrate a space suit or the hull of a spacecraft and can cause severe disturbances in the geospace environment when they encounter Earth’s magnetic field. However, only about 1% of the CMEs produce strong SEP (solar energetic particles) events.

So many feels in this photograph. Wow. Ever wonder what it feels like to have someone you love leave the planet? No. You don’t. But in generations ahead, photographs like these will emanate hope, celebration, and achievement as we become spacefaring in such a way that it’s as frequent as commercial air travel.

thenomadundergrad:

Nothing like holding a pure compound that you have just synthesized.
(bottom picture shows the structure of the synthesized compound)

The last steps in the synthesis involves hydrolysing the ester bond on the naphthalene ring and then coupling the carboxylic acid to a dipeptide chain.

These molecules are being synthesized and studied due to their anti-cancer activity shown in both lung cancer and malignant melanoma cell lines. Although past research is all ‘in vitro’, we hope to push for ‘in vivo' testing in the future.
