[Vídeo] La mayor explosión lunar que hayas visto nunca

External image

No era necesario telescopio para observar la explosión lugar desde la Tierra, así que imaginaos la magnitud de la misma. El pasado 17 de marzo, los investigadores registraron la mayor explosión lunar de toda la historia de un programa de seguimiento de explosiones causadas por el impacto de meteoritos sobre la superficie de nuestro satélite, que ahora se sabe que son más frecuentes de lo que se sospechaba. El programa lleva en funcionamiento ocho años. Un objeto de las dimensiones de una roca grande (30 ó 40 cm y unos 40 kg de peso) impactó contra la superficie lunar, en Mare Imbrium, y el lugar del impacto brilló con la intensidad de una estrella de magnitud 4 durante casi un segundo. El …

Panorama of Chang’e 3′s landing site in Mare Imbrium. This probe, which landed on the Moon in December 2013, was China’s first soft landing on the Moon, and the first spacecraft of any sort to make a soft landing on the Moon since 1976. Soon after arrival, the lander deposited a small rover named Yutu. In this panorama, acquired about 3 days after landing, Yutu has driven partway around the lander. Before a mechanical malfunction stopped Yutu’s exploration of the lunar surface, it would travel to Loong Yan (Dragon Rock, the large pointy rock at bottom center) and back to the lander. The last transmission from Yutu was in March 2015, but the Chang’e 3 lander continues to function, mostly performing astronomical observations with its ultraviolet telescope.

El 14 de diciembre del 2013, Chang'e 3  logró un alunizaje controlado en la región de Mare Imbrium, considerado el segundo mayor ‘mar’ lunar, llamado de este modo ya que en la antigüedad se pensaba que era un verdadero mar. Con esta misión en la Luna, China logró convertirse en el tercer país en conseguir esta hazaña luego de Estados Unidos y la Unión Soviética.

Video muestra impacto de meteorito en la Luna

External image

La NASA liberó recientemente un video mostrando la explosión más grande que se haya visto en la Luna en los últimos ocho años, momento en el que se comenzó a observar este tipo de fenómenos sobre el satélite natural. Las explosiones son provocadas por meteoritos que impactan la superficie lunar. El 17 de marzo, un meteorito de unos 40 kilos y entre 0,3 y 0,4 metros de diámetro chocó con la Luna a alrededor de 90.000 km/h, cayendo sobre la zona de Mare Imbrium, provocando una explosión “casi 10 veces más brillante que cualquier cosa que hayamos visto nunca”, afirmó Bill Cooke de la oficina de meteoritos de la NASA. Se cree que el cráter …

China just released photos of its first Moon landing and the rover that made history

The Chinese Lunar Exploration Program released photos of its first Moon landing to the public late last month.

The landing took place in 2013, when China set its rover, called Yutu (Chinese for “Jade Rabbit”), down in one of the largest craters in the solar system, Mare Imbrium.

The rover would later go on to make history, by setting the record for operating longer than any lunar rover before it.

Now, we can explore Mare Imbrium through the eyes of Yutu and its lander for the first time. Check out some of the photos below:

(Most of these images are compilations of multiple database photos stitched together by editor of The Planetary Society, Emily Lakdawalla, for this post.)

The mission marks the first time humans have landed anything on the Moon since the ‘70s. The lander (shown here) first touched down on December 14, 2013 and deployed the Yutu rover 7.5 hours later.

Here’s a shot of Yutu making tracks across the moon’s surface, which it did for about a month after touchdown before losing the ability to move. Still, Yutu continued to send information for months after that, and last October, it broke the record for operating longer than any other lunar rover in history.

Chinese engineers placed cameras on both the lander (shown below) and the Yutu rover, which took this photo on Jan. 13, 2014 — just two days before the rover’s motor failed and it lost mobility.

Chinese engineers placed cameras on both the lander (shown below) and the Yutu rover, which took this photo on Jan. 13, 2014 — just two days before the rover’s motor failed and it lost mobility.

Engineers attached two instruments to Yutu: One used radar to penetrate 98 feet below the surface, providing the first direct analysis of the soil’s structure and depth. The second instrument analyzed the chemical composition of lunar surface samples, like rock and dirt.

The rover discovered that Mare Imbrium, one of the largest craters in the solar system, is compositionally different from the locations where NASA and Russia have landed their lunar missions. Yutu also found evidence of 9 distinct rock layers beneath the crater’s surface, which was surprisingly complex compared to what scientists expected to find.

So far, Yutu (shadow shown here) is the only rover China has landed on the Moon, but it probably won’t be the last. China plans to launch another lander similar to Yutu by the end of 2018 and land it on the far side of the Moon soon after.
