These following shots were made for engineering purposes. They selected the best of them and showed them to the public.

I would say that it is a must see for every shuttle fan cool

SolarLiner, there are existing threads where that video should have been posted, with this being the best one.

Note, in the link above, it will redirect you to a link that doesn't work (thanks, uCoz). To fix it, just replace the small "n" with a large "N" in the URL and go to that address, and it will work (case-sensitive URLs, thanks Flickr).

Yeah, I don't buy it at all. It's actually been known that there are lifeforms in Earth's upper atmosphere for decades, since the early balloon/rocket sampling tests, but few astrobiologists actually think they come from space. It is much more plausible that they are lofted up from the surface by various dynamical processes in the atmosphere, though the details are not yet fully understood.

I agree. Whilst we don't know by what mechanism they could be lofted up except by conjecture, the same thing can be said about an extraterrestial origin. We don't know how organisms form, survive and spread in space either except by conjecture. Hence the former is no argument for the latter. And since we do know that life exists on earth and we don't know if life exists in space, the evidence so far clearly favours an earthly origin. The only thing these scientists have proven is how to get everybody's attention.

These samples need to be collected in space in a way that rules out contamination.

The size of the part of Earth's surface directly under various space objects


Ganymede is actually larger than Mercury but Mercury is much heavier than Ganymede. Just look at their densities, surface gravities and escape velocities blink

Yes, I think he knows that.

Yes, I know. Mercury's core is made of iron, so it's an high-density planet.

But in the graphics, the information is : angular_size*earth_radius, and as Mercury's mean distance to Earth is 1 AU, and Ganymede's mean distance to Earth is 5 AU, mercury appears bigger.
