In this undated photo, Astronaut Gordon Cooper trains on a wooden mockup of the Apollo Lunar Module (LEM) at a Grumman Aircraft facility on Long Island, NY. The LEM was the first crewed spacecraft designed to operate exclusively in the vacuum of space – the main reason for it’s unorthodox appearance.

It’s been 60 years since Luna 2’s (or Lunik 2’s) impact on the moon’s surface on September 13, 1959. It’s impact was a moon landing “first” 🥇 that would spell fear for the Americans, becoming the fuel for the later Apollo 🌚 missions. But what would’ve happened if the Russians 🇷🇺 made a successful manned mission to the 🌖 first? I’m really excited to watch FOR ALL MANKIND on #appletvplus to find out! 🍎📺➕ Are you looking forward to the new show? 👀 #forallmankind #joelkinnaman #appletv #appletv4k #appleplus #spacerace #newspacerace #secondspacerace #moonmission #earlyrockets #russianrocket #soyuz #apollomission #apollomissions #spacenews #spacehistory #luna2 #lunik2 #spaceraceoutfitters #baikonurcosmodrome #rocketlaunch

Hubble non smette mai stupire. . Il telescopio spaziale in orbita intorno al nostro pianeta ha scattato questa incredibile foto di Saturno. La qualità dell'immagine è stata resa possibile anche dal fatto che Saturno si trovava in uno dei punti più vicini alla Terra. Le orbite dei due pianeti erano infatti tali da garantire questa vicinanza. . Hubble è in orbita dal 1990 e da allora ha osservato il nostro sistema solare e l'universo nella gamma del vicino ultravioletto, del visibile e dell'infrarosso. . Orbita ad un altitudine di circa 550 km e si prevede che possa essere operativo ancora per parecchi anni, forse fino al 2030/2040. *** #hubble #spazio #space #spacerace #saturno #pianeti #hubbletelescope #hubblespacetelescope #saturn #anelli #planets #blu #scientist #giove #urano #nettuno

Perihelion Approaches Image Credit: ESA / Rosetta / MPS for OSIRIS Team; MPS/UPD/LAM/IAA/SSO/INTA/UPM/DASP/IDA • https://www.space-collectibles.com • Follow @spacecollectibles for more! • Credits : @[email protected] • This dramatic outburst from the nucleus of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko occured on August 12, just hours before perihelion, its closest approach to the Sun. Completing an orbit of the Sun once every 6.45 years, perihelion distance for this periodic comet is about 1.3 astronomical units (AU), still outside the orbit of planet Earth (at 1 AU). The stark image of the 4 kilometer wide, double-lobed nucleus in bright sunlight and dark shadows was taken by the Rosetta spacecraft's science camera about 325 kilometers away. Too close to see the comet's growing tail, Rosetta maintains its ringside seat to watch the nucleus warm , as primordial ices sublimating from the surface produce jets of gas and dust. Of course, dust from the nucleus of periodic comet Swift-Tuttle, whose last perihelion passage was in 1992 at a distance of 0.96 AU, fell to Earth just this week. • #spacecollectibles #spacememorabilia #nasa #nasabeyond #nasa60th #space #moon #cosmos #planet #solarsystem #outerspace #COMET #rosetta #spacehistory #spacerace #spaceexploration #educatingspace #spacegeek #spacewalk #spaceflown #retrospace #aerospaceengineering #johnsonspacecenter #kennedyspacecenter #vintage_nasa_photographs #collectspace @nasa @nasaastromaterials @nasajohnson @nasakennedy @nasagoddard @nasa_marshall @nasa_langley @nasajpl

Sadly, today the old Satellite Hotel sign is leaving for its new home out west. If you haven’t taken your picture with it yet, come on by it will be available from noon - 2pm. During the 1950s and 60s Cocoa Beach was a boom town. The Satellite Motel with its night club, The Pillow Talk Lounge, was the hip, happening place in town. It remained a hot spot on the beach through the late 70s. The Ocean Landings Resort & Racket Club stand in the foot print of the original structures of the Satellite Motel/Pillow Talk Lounge. #Rocketcityretromcm #design #style #vintageshop #etsy #shopetsy #decorator #orlando #vintagestyle #miami #coolestshopincocoavillage #sarasota #melbournefl #interiordesign #mcm #midcenturystyle #Spacecoast #Winterparkfl #Collegepark #Downtownorlando #Mills50 #Milkdistrictorlando #satellitemotel #cocoabeach #vintagecocoabeach #oldsign #spacecoast #spacerace #spacememoriblia

Acoplamiento de cosmos 186/188, fueron unas misiones no tripuladas lanzadas por la cccp en octubre de 1967, las cuales tenían como objetivo realizar el primer acoplamiento de dos naves en el espacio de manera automática. Las naves se acoplaron en el segundo intento. Estas quedaron unidas, pero no se consiguió el acoplamiento total ni la conexión eléctrica entre ambas naves debido a un error en el alineamiento entre ambas. Antes de la reentrada el seguidor estelar de la nave, produciendo una reentrada balística. La misión fue programada para coincidir con las celebraciones del 50 aniversario de la revolución de octubre. #cosmos #venus #astronomy #astronomia #cccp #cosmonaut #roscosmos #nasa #spacex #blueorogin #moon #mars #spacerace

More progress on a commissioned project called T-Minus for @dirkcavaliar. The NASA Escape Tower for the Mercury - Atlas rocket launches.  It is 1/24th scale. Assembly of the structure that holds and swings the walkway to the capsule up and out of the way.  I am making the piece function with pins.  This way the walkway can be placed in either the down position resting at the capsule entrance or up and out of the way for launch.  Whatever the director wants. 😁  One pic shows motor placement.  Another pic gives a sneak preview of walkway grating.  It is fine screen from McMaster-Carr. It gives great scale. Last pic shows the real thing with the capsule being raised to the rocket. . . . .   #vfx #miniatures #miniature #scalemodel #plasticmodel #mcmastercarr #scratchbuild #modelmaker #michaepossert #rocket #handmade #custommade #practicaleffects #nasa #tower #escapetower #mercuryatlas #launch #florida #orbit #plastruct #solvent #wip #oneoff #1960s #blastoff #capsule #spacerace #moon #astronaut

⁠ ⁠ Micromoon not so micro⁠ ⁠PH: @lf.fotografia⁠ ⁠ It’s the first time in more than 80 years – 84 years t – that a full Harvest Moon falls on unlucky Friday the 13th. ⁠ ⁠ But for me it was a lucky day in the mountains of my home with not clouds at moonrise.⁠ ⁠ The full Harvest Moon falls closest to the autumnal equinox with the last occurrence taking place in 1935. ⁠ The next time this happens will be in the year 2171. ⁠ ⁠ This year’s full Harvest moon was also a Micromoon.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ According to Time And Date A Micromoon happens when a Full Moon coincides with an apogee. when the point in the Moon’s orbit the farthest away from Earth.⁠ ⁠ Because the moon is further away from Earth, it appears approximately 14% smaller, and 13% less brighter than a Supermoon, ⁠ But not for me, in the clean air of mountains, and at exact time of mooonrise and with a big tele lens the small micromoon was not micro, and the bad lucky 13Th was only good luck for me.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #MoonLanding #NASA#autumn #micromoon#endlessknowledge #space #spacerace #moon #histoty #moonlanding #neilarmstrong#luckyday⁠ ⁠ #lffotografiaarchive⁠ ⁠ ⁠

1000 Sols Image Credit: NASA, JPL-Caltech; Mosaic Processing: Marco Di Lorenzo, Kenneth Kremer • https://www.space-collectibles.com • Follow @spacecollectibles for more! • Credits : @nasa @apod.nasa • Shortly before Mars' June 2015 conjunction, the Curiosity Rover celebrated 1000 sols on the red planet. After its August 5, 2012 landing, Curiosity's 1000th sol or martian day on the surface corresponded to planet Earth's calendar date May 31, 2015. Because the line-of-sight to Mars is close to the Sun near the conjunction, radio communications are affected and the six-wheeled, car-sized robotic rover cautiously remains parked at this spot for now. The view looks back toward the stomping grounds for Curiosity's nearly 10.6 kilometer trek so far, with the hazy rim of Gale Crater looming in the distance. The mosaicked panorama was constructed with images from navigation cameras taken on Curiosity's sol 997. • #spacecollectibles #spacememorabilia #nasa #nasabeyond #nasa60th #space #moon #cosmos #planet #solarsystem #outerspace #mars #marsplanet #curiosity #spacehistory #spacerace #spaceexploration #educatingspace #spacegeek #spacewalk #spaceflown #retrospace #aerospaceengineering #johnsonspacecenter #kennedyspacecenter #vintage_nasa_photographs #collectspace @nasa @nasaastromaterials @nasajohnson @nasakennedy @nasagoddard @nasa_marshall @nasa_langley @nasajpl

Strike a pose. Some space age fashion courtesy the first American in space, Alan Shepard. One of the Original 7 astronauts who had ‘the right stuff’ & was chosen in Group 1 by NASA in 1959. Shepard flew 3 weeks after cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin who became first human in space & first to orbit the globe. As Project Mercury wound down, Mr. Shepard was scheduled to fly a 3-day Mercury-Atlas 10 mission. This would have been a first for NASA, whose previous longest flight was Gordon Cooper’s 34-hour Mercury 9 mission. Mercury 10 though was unfortunately canceled & the 2-pilot Project Gemini program would soon kick off with Gus Grissom & John Young. #alanshepard #projectmercury #spacerace #astronauts #spaceprogram #1961 #therightstuff #nasa #spaceage #1960s #vintagespace #spaceflight #spaceman #spaceexploration #spacesuit #astronaut #nasa🚀 #spacemission #mercuryprogram #historic #astronautsuit #spacetravel #nasasocial #spacehistory

Jack Schmitt takes a tourist picture of Gene at the LM, Apollo 17. This is the best of the portraits that Jack took of Gene at the start of Apollo 17 EVA-3. Note that Gene is not wearing a camera on his chest-mounted RCU. Jack is using Gene's camera to take the picture. Swipe to view a close up image of Earth reflect off the upper part of Gene's visor. This photograph was taken at 23:04 UTC on 13 December 1972. Earth is at an elevation of 44 degrees and azimuth of 239, directly over the South Massif as seen from the LM. Note that the LRV high-gain antenna is pointed at the Earth. #spacetravel #spacemissions #spacemen #stargazing #spaceshuttle #spacesuits #manonthemoon #projectapollo #spacehistory #spaceconquest #spacerace #apollo50 #apolloprogram #spacestation #saturnv #moonlanding #Rocketry #nasa #spacecraft #rocket #nerd #awesome #spacex #cosmonauts

Venera 9, el 8 de junio de 1975 fue lanzada con éxito la primera sonda en orbitar, aterrizar y enviar imágenes de Venus. Fue la primera astronave que envió a la Tierra una imagen de la superficie de otro planeta. Se hizo uso de un sistema de fluido circulante para distribuir el calor. Este sistema permitió que el módulo funcionara durante 53 minutos después de aterrizar, a la vez que se perdía el contacto por radio con el orbitador. Durante el descenso, la disipación de calor y deceleración fue secuencialmente conseguida gracias a las cubiertas hemiesféricas de protección, tres paracaídas, un freno aerodinámico en forma de disco y el sistema de amortiguadores de la sonda. El aterrizaje se produjo a unos 2.200 km de donde aterrizaría la Venera. #cosmos #venus #astronomy #astronomia #cccp #cosmonaut #roscosmos #nasa #spacex #blueorogin #moon #mars #spacerace

Normally I don’t worry too much about crediting the originals – not that I don’t want to, it’s just a logistical nightmare. But this one was easy to look up, and it’s very hard to take pictures of things 8,000 light years away so I think it’s needed here.

Into the Void Image Credit: NASA, Gemini Project, James McDivitt • https://www.space-collectibles.com • Follow @spacecollectibles for more! • Credits : @nasa @apod.nasa • Fifty four years ago, on June 3, 1965, Edward White stepped out of the orbiting Gemini 4 spacecraft to become the first US astronaut to walk in space. White is captured in this photo taken by mission commander James McDivit from inside the capsule as White's spacewalk began over the Pacific Ocean on Gemini 4's third orbit. Planet Earth, spacecraft, and tether are reflected in White's gold tinted helmet visor. A gas powered manuevering gun is held in his right hand. Though the gun ran out of gas after only 3 minutes, he continued to manuever by twisting his body and pulling on the tether for the remainder of the 23 minute long Extra Vehicular Activity. White later described his historic spacewalk as the most comfortable part of the mission, and said the order to end it was the "saddest moment" of his life. • #spacecollectibles #spacememorabilia #nasa #nasabeyond #nasa60th #space #moon #cosmos #planet #solarsystem #outerspace #spacehistory #spacerace #spaceexploration #educatingspace #spacegeek #spacewalk #spaceflown #retrospace #aerospaceengineering #johnsonspacecenter #kennedyspacecenter #vintage_nasa_photographs #collectspace @nasa @nasaastromaterials @nasajohnson @nasakennedy @nasagoddard @nasa_marshall @nasa_langley @nasajpl #gemini

The scary death of cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov Pt.1 1967 marked the 50th birthday of the USSR fifth leader, Leonid Brezhnev and the country wanted to make a special and grand space celebration. That celebration would be the launch of a spacecraft into space, then the launch of another the next day. The greatest thing, though, is yet to come: the two cosmonauts would switch spacecrafts and then they would land back to earth! Vladimir Komarov, a national hero of the USSR who had flew to space just 3 years earlier, in 1964, would be in the Soyuz 1, a spacecraft that was made out of the latest technology, but was considered more than dangerous. According to the book "Starman", by Jamie Doran and Piers Bizony, 203 damages were found on the spacecraft. Brezhnev, though, insisted on the mission and the launch of Komarov in the Soyuz 1. Vladimir Komarov knew everything from the beginning and he knew that if he got into that capsule and launched to space, he wouldn't return back home. So, why would he even enter that spacecraft in the first place? a sane person would ask. If Vladimir Komarov wouldn't participate to that mission, his replacement would be Yuri Gagarin. The first man to fly to space and one of his dearest friend. When Komarov was informed about that, he was shocked and, according to the KGB officer, Veniamin Rusayev, he said "It's Yura and he is going to die instead of me. We must protect him". Komarov was escorted by his colleagues to his spacecraft, who were singing to them. Some of them couldn't hide their sadness and cried, but they all had to keep their heads high and believe that maybe -just maybe- things would go well. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #spacemission #spacerace #space #komarov #vladimirkomarov #yurigagarin #gagarin #ussr #kgb #russia #60s #1960s #cosmonaut #cosmonauts #austronaut #austronauts #souyz1 #soyuz #vintage #old #past #retro #writer

The tenth man to walk on the Moon, Charles M. Duke Jr., Apollo 16 Lunar Module Pilot, had to be the most enthused Moon walker. Duke couldn’t resist describing the wonder of the Lunar scene and the moment, “Wow! What a place! What a view, isn’t it, John?” John Young, “It’s absolutely unreal!” Duke, “We’ve really come up here, Tony. It’s just spectacular. Gosh, I have never seen... all I can say is ‘spectacular,’ and I know you are all are sick of that word, but my vocabulary is so limited.” This short clip is of EVA 2 and 3 when the crew explored Stone Mountain and House Rock within the Descartes Highlands landing site from April 22-24, 1972. #spaceflight  #rocketsspace #spaceexplorers #astronaut  #spaceman #astronautics  #spacetravel #spacemissions #spacemen  #stargazing #spaceshuttle  #spacesuits #manonthemoon #projectapollo  #spacehistory #spaceconquest #spacerace  #apollo50 #apolloprogram #spacestation  #saturnv #moonlanding  #Rocketry #nasa  #spacecraft  #rocket #nerd  #awesome #spacex  #cosmonauts

"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." ... "Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there." Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God's blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked." . On 12 September 1962, Kennedy gave his famous speech at Rice University declaring that we will go to the moon in this decade. And we did. . That spirit of exploration and excitement was a driving inspiration to Americans in the 60s, as it is now to Light Years. . . . #film #shortfilm #filmmaking #space #mars #moon #moonlanding #jfk #kennedy #thisdayinhistory #thisdayinspacehistory🚀 #nasa #animation #mixedmedia #mixedmediafilmmaking #spaceship #spacerace #femalefilmmaker #cute #inspiration #lightyears #lightyearsfilm #lightyearsshortfilm #🚀

One more Day. Until the Full Moon. I placed the phone directly on the ground for this one. I was able to stabalize it much better to focus this time... But it's cloudy and foggy from today's little storm. Glad it cleared enough for this though. The second... Of Three Shots. I'll show you Of the Moon. Leading into its Full Phase. Just using the new p30 phone. No filters.. Just took the picture.. Like.. 30 times.. And it was hard to pick this one. Doesnt it kind of look like we are looking Out.. From.. In.. Like.. Change perspective. For a second.. Pretend you are looking OUT.. As If light comes from within the hole. We could be looking Into.. Something. Hmmm... The moon is an odd little shit to say the least.. They try to lie and say everything's rotating.. Yet the moon is the only thing that sits still.... Lmao.. And follows the sun somehow.. Yet sits still.. Yet is somehow attached to Earth.. The heliocentric model literally.. Was created to make your fucking head spin. I'm not saying we live under a Dome. But.. It sure is more probable. 😂😅🤦🏻‍♂️ It's a Realm... Of possibilities... Did you get my Pun.. Have you ordered my book yet?! Do you know about the Garden? It's.. A.. Realm.. Do you know what a Realm is? My book that's available now in my Store.... Goes a little into that. Anyways. Tomorrow's full moon shot should be dope. I'm like a little kid with this fucking thing.. #alchemy #moon #moonlandinghoax #huawei #p30 #spirit #asabovesobelow #space #skies #taxes #spacerace #JFK #conspiracy #moonlanding #QuestionEverything #gutinstincts #podcast #authorsofinstagram #bookrelease #spiritualhealing #knowledgewithin #cheesemoon #igotjokes #spiritualawakening #selfdiscovery

Project Fire Update- Researching this episode has been a bit more involved than I originally planned. Which is good and bad. Good because the episode is going to be a bit longer than usual. Bad because y'all are going to have to wait a few more weeks for it to release. Laboratory technicians are seen here as they prepared the Project Fire re-entry spacecraft for the "final operational tests in Republic Aviation's space environment chamber." A blog post will accompany this episode as well. I'm also going to try a slightly different podcast format for this episode. Stay tuned for more!

In 1963 Felicette the astrocat became the only feline to successfully return safely from a space mission. She was captured on the streets of Paris and became one of 14 cats chosen as possible candidates. She will be immortalized with a bronze statue at the French International Space University.

#tbt to the day I got to see one of the huge crawlers that is supplied with parts from a company that my grandfather worked for. This massive machine was used as part of the Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programmes to transport launch vehicles from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Complex 39. It travels to the launch pads at 1mph and returns at 2mph. #aviation #avgeek #space #spacerace #spaceflight #aeronautics #history #familyties #engineering #throwbackthursday #shotoniphone

Meet Belka and Strelka, both girl heroines, the first two dogs to survive space in August 1960, on Sputnik V. Photos in Paris Match show them 700,000km above the Earth. They were accompanied by mice, rats, flies, algae and seeds, all of which returned alive. Poor, scared babies. Amazing pictures like this coming to Hackney Flea this weekend. Come and rummage through a bit of history in pictures. #belka #strelka #heroines #dogsinspace #sputnik5 #spacedogs #spacerace #sovietspaceprogram #brave #braveschiennes #dogs #dogsofinstagram #instadog #mansbestfriend #famousdogs #dogsinhistory #heroes #space #spacetravel #reportage #historyinpictures #historyphotographed #amomentintime #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephoto #blacksndwhitephotography #n16 #vintagephoto

Lunojod 1, el 17 de noviembre de 1970 la estación automática interplanetaria soviética luna 17 aterrizó junto con el primer vehículo robótico teledirigido de exploración a la luna. Este estaba diseñado para operar por 90 días mientras era guiado en tiempo real por un equipo de cinco personas en el Centro del Espacio Profundo cerca de Moscú, URSS. El Lunojod finalmente recorrió mare imbrium (Mar de las Lluvias) por 11 meses en uno de los mayores éxitos del programa soviético de exploración lunar. #cosmos #rover #iss #roscosmos #cccp #spacerace #blueorigin #spacex #nasa #cosmonaut #moon #mars #astronomia #astronomy

“In 1969, to commemorate the Apollo 10 mission, Denoyer Geppert designed a special lunar globe that the astronauts of the mission presented to President Nixon. Contracted by NASA, Denoyer Geppert created the first complete moon globe, using the Apollo 10 film footage and photographs of the far side of the moon. 200 first edition globes of this type were produced, the first of which went to President Nixon and four others to special members of Congress” #denoyergeppert #vintageglobes #historical #globe #lunarglobe #moon
