Just last November, we told you about the Project Apollo Archive – that project where NASA finally got tired of all the conspiracy theories and uploaded lots of high resolution moon photos on Flickr.
This time, allow us to share with you new (yes, new!) raw photos from a Chinese lunar mission.
In 2013, China successfully sent the Chang’e 3 for a moon exploration and now the images from that robot has officially been released to the public. Of course, the mission was not without difficulties since in February 2014, the rover (Yutu) broke down while it was doing a surface study for 3 months with the lander. Fortunately, images have already been captured from the lunar surface.
Planetary Society’s Emily Lakdawalla recovered 35 GB worth of stunning moon photos from the labyrinthine system.
Emily Lakdawalla, senior editor and planetary evangelist of Planetary Society, did the task of navigating the labyrinthine system (written in Mandarin) and was able to retrieve 35 GB worth of data. The images revealed amazing detail since they were captured by digital cameras.
Lakdawalla said about the photos:
“This isn’t the first release of Chang’e 3 images, it’s just the first time I’d accessed the archived full science data sets… Many of these images have been released before, as processed versions, but now there is raw data available to researchers, with all the necessary metadata.”
So without further ado, let’s check out some of these cool photos now:
Will this set of images finally silence the lunar conspiracy theories for good? Well, let’s all hope so!
“The Earth Has Shifted,” Inuit Elders Warn NASA
Stop blaming global warming. According to Inuit elders, our planet has titled from its original position.
If the Inuits are to be believed, it looks like global warming really isn’t the cause of all the crazy weather and natural calamities we’re experiencing recently – it’s probably because the Earth has titled a little from its original position.
This is the alarming warning of the Inuit elders to NASA.
The Inuits are a group of people inhabiting the Arctic regions of Alaska, Canada, and Greenland. They and their ancestors are known for being accurate weather forecasters.
This Rifle Can Shoot Down Small Drones Without Destroying Them
Defend your airspace with this awesome toy!
Battelle’s DroneDefender is possibly one of the best anti-drone machines in the world today. What makes this machine unique is that it utilizes “invisible beam delivered in an ultraportable, gun-like form,” as Mashable describes the device.
TheDroneDefender uses radio control frequency disruption to bring a drone down without destroying it in any way. For industry experts, that last part is crucial since the feature will allow users to get hold of the drone intact and investigate its source at the same time. This could be pretty handy for, say, airport security that needs a tool to stop drones from flying into restricted airspace or for preventing industrial espionage.
The Battelle DroneDefender has a 400-meter range and can jam ISM bands and GPS signals.
Research Found Women Can Recognize Ovulating Women That Are Threats to Their Men!
Women can recognize if another gal is likely to lure their men away!
It has been said that women have noses even better than a canine's. Call it a woman's intuition or just plain supernatural skills, but you're sure as hell can't hide anything from your girlfriend or wife, especially if it involves another woman! It can even get eerie how some women are even able to track down who exactly is the lady their significant other is having an affair with.
Well ponder no more, because Science found out in an interesting study how women are able to do that just by looking at the faces of other ladies.
Can catfights be prevented with this scientific finding?
