哈勃望远镜发现发射星云双星团

Against a backdrop littered with tiny pinpricks of light glint a few, brighter stars. This whole collection is NGC 1858, an open star cluster in the northwest region of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way that boasts an abundance of star-forming regions. NGC 1858 is estimated to be around 10 million years old. Open clusters are a ...

猎户座的月球环形山特写

2022年11月21日,在阿尔忒弥斯1号任务的第六天,猎户座飞船的光学导航相机拍摄到了月球下方陨石坑的黑白图像。这张照片和其他拍摄到的照片是自阿波罗号以来从载人飞船上拍摄的离月球最近的照片。光学导航相机以不同的相位和距离拍摄地球和月球的黑白图像;这项技术演示将有助于证明其在未来载人任务中的有效性。

猎户座、地球和月球

2022年11月28日,周一,NASA的猎户座宇宙飞船在执行阿尔忒弥斯1号任务时达到了它与地球的最大距离——距离我们的母星268,563英里,比以往任何旨在将人类送往太空和返回的宇宙飞船都要远。在这张照片中,猎户座号捕捉到了地球和月球的独特视角,这是由安装在飞船太阳能电池阵列上的相机拍摄。

猎户座接近月球,进行返回动力飞掠

A portion of the far side of the Moon looms large just beyond the Orion spacecraft in this image taken Monday, Nov. 21, the sixth day of the Artemis I mission, by a camera on the tip of one of Orion’s solar arrays. The darkest spot visible near the middle of the image is Mare Orientale. Image Credit: NASA See more images from Orion’s flight in our Flic...

宇航员史努比在纽约“着陆”

The Astronaut Snoopy balloon is seen floating along in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022, in New York City. The Astronaut Snoopy balloon is flying in New York City at the same time that Snoopy also flies around the Moon in the Orion spacecraft as a zero gravity indicator for the Artemis I mission.

史努比乘阿尔忒弥斯1号前往太空

Snoopy, the zero-gravity indicator for NASA’s Artemis I flight test, floats in space on Nov. 20, 2022, while attached to his tether in the Orion spacecraft. In this enhanced image, Snoopy stands out in a custom orange spacesuit, while Orion’s interior has been shaded black and white for contrast. The character’s spacesuit is modeled after the sui...

猎户座的光学导航相机拍摄到了地球的照片

NASA’s uncrewed Orion spacecraft snapped this black and white photo of Earth on Nov. 17, 2022, the second day of the 25.5-day Artemis I mission. The optical navigation camera is used to capture imagery of the Earth and the Moon at different phases and distances, which help establish its effectiveness as a way of determining its position in space for future m...

猎户座接近月球

On Nov. 20, the fifth day of the 25.5-day Artemis I mission, a camera mounted on the tip of one of Orion’s solar array wings captured this footage of the spacecraft and the Moon as it continued to grow nearer to our lunar neighbor. The spacecraft entered the lunar sphere of influence at 2:09 p.m. EST, making the Moon, instead of Earth, the main gravitational...

哈勃望远镜观测到一个正在膨胀的宇宙云

A small, dense cloud of gas and dust called CB 130-3 blots out the center of this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. CB 130-3 is an object known as a dense core, a compact agglomeration of gas and dust. This particular dense core is in the constellation Serpens and seems to billow across a field of background stars. Dense cores like CB 130-3 are...
