I was in the chat and somehow the playing of Rocketeer and the discussion of the Griffith Observatory led to talk about space jobs and celestial websites.

I know some of you follow the NASA space launches closely so now you have an outlet for your shared passions!

Please post if you have an interest in all things space-related, share interesting space websites, describe your space or aeronautics or astronomy job, share a story about your visit to Kennedy or Johnson Space Centers, etc!

Here's the link to the other SST space shuttle launch tribute thread.

YES! two free open-source software:

Then, awesome space simulator with a lot of add-ons like satelites or comets (also SF add-on, i-e The 2001 Discovery spaceship)

I'm all in to this club.
I don't have a space related job, but I do pay attention to most space related happenings, and watch all shuttle launches.

I'm also interrested in space/atmosphere related phenomena, and this site is a great source for that:

Shot outside me office last winter.

NASA is so close to earth.. Rolling Eyes Radio astronomy goes waaaaay further. Cool

Wow, the space cadets were out in full force in chat this morning. Very Happy It was exciting to realize how many SSTers are directly or indirectly involved in the field, or follow space news with great interest. Thanks, Zir, for starting this thread for us.

I don't work in the industry but have always been keenly interested in all things “space”. I’ve followed the US space program since the first orbital flights. One surreal experience I had was when I was living in the jungle on a tiny remote island in the Pacific (Peace Corps), listening to a ham radio broadcast of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon! I get such a kick out of watching Ellie in Contact, and feel such empathy for her. To this day I usually have the Science Channel turned on most of the time, and thank heaven the NASA channel is available online.

Our children always had every Lego space set there was, and we read and watched everything we could get our hands on, including the original Cosmos series with Carl Sagan. My oldest son went on to study rocket science at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, and met Carl Sagan on numerous occasions, as he was a Professor Emeritus there. I had the great thrill of meeting him as well one time at a lecture and asked him to autograph my copy of his book.

Our son went on to get his PhD at UCLA on a NASA Fellowship, which involved working at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, every summer. (Most of you know Huntsville is where Wernher von Braun did his early research and experiments.) During that time my son had a pass to be in one of the bunkers at the Kennedy Space Flight Center for a launch, but that mission got scrubbed and the opportunity to view a launch up-close-and-personal never came up again.

It is my great hope that someday I'll get to see an actual launch. With the program ending in 2010, it probably won't happen. Or perhaps something better will come along. Smile

That son is now in the field of ion propulsion. A friend of his is at JPL working on one of the Mars projects. He gives him original photos that they print out from some of the rover’s surveillance cameras, and I am the lucky recipient of some of the extras. They are so awesome to see!

It’s such a thrill to be able to listen to Mission Control live and see the shuttle launches live on the internet … all to the perfectly-timed music programmed by Chandler. It doesn’t get much better than that – unless of course it would be to be there in person.

Cal, awesome pictures! You are one lucky guy.

Keep posting to this thread, everyone. The links are fabulous!

Nice topic, zirael. Sign me up!

I've been to the Kennedy Space Centre. Yipee!!!!

I love all sorts of stuff about space, astronomy, cosmology, star-gazing, etc. I don't pretend to understand the science behind it all, but there is a beauty and profundity there which I find awe-inspiring and wondrous.

One aspect of this topic that I'm particularly interested in is Space Art. Many of the paintings shown here are fantastic. Here are some of my favourite websites:

B.E. Johnson
http://imperialearth.com/painted.html

Don Davis
http://www.donaldedavis.com/

Don Dixon
http://www.cosmographica.com/gallery/gallery_main.html

Joe Tucciarone

Mark A. Garlick

Gary Tonge

William K. Hartmann

..and some general sites

Solar Voyager
http://www.solarvoyager.com/

NovaSpace
http://www.novaspace.com/

I used to have a few more but I lost the links when my hard drive crashed. Hope you enjoy!

Shocked Wow, I didn't realize there were so many space enthusiasts here. I guess I'm kind of a cursory enthusiast next to you all. Embarassed

I've been keeping a close eye on the Astronaut Selection website, especially the timeline for receipt of new applications.

That was, until I heard NASA Chief Michael Griffin speak recently. Someone in the audience asked when they were going to be selecting new Astronaut Candidates. His reply was, "Well, we have 140 astronauts, and 70 of them have flown," implying that they weren't going to be selecting new recruits any time soon. Sad

I've sort of lost my interest since that time, probably meaning I was never really that committed in the first place, so it was maybe good that I heard that.

Still... to fly in space....... *sigh* Neutral
