Carl Sagan, US astronomer

Carl Edward Sagan (1934-1996), US astronomer and astrochemist. Sagan was a consultant and adviser to NASA, and worked on the Apollo mission, as well as the Mariner, Viking, Voyager, and Galileo space probes and planetary exploration programs. He proposed theories to explain the high temperature of Venus, the seasonal changes on Mars, and the reddish haze of Titan. He was a prominent sceptic and populariser of science, writing many books on the subject. He also campaigned for nuclear disarmament, and spoke at the conference of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War in Moscow in the summer of 1987. Photographed in 1987, in Moscow, Russia


Skylab 3 Close-Up Featured Apollo Missions Print

Skylab 3 Close-Up

A closeup view of the Skylab space station photographed against an Earth background from the Skylab 3 Command/Service Module during station keeping maneuvers prior to docking. The Ilba Grande de Gurupa area of the Amazon River Vally of Brazil can be seen below. Aboard the command module were astronauts Alan L. Bean, Owen K. Garriott, and Jack R. Lousma, who remained with the Skylab space station in Earth's orbit for 59 days. This picture was taken with a hand-held 70mm Hasselblad camera using a 100mm lens and SO-368 medium speed Ektachrome film. Note the one solar array system wing on the Orbital Workshop (OWS) which was successfully deployed during axtravehicular activity (EVA) on the first manned Skylab flight. The parasol solar shield which was deployed by the Skylab 2 crew can be seen through the support struts of the Apollo Telescope Mount


Apollo 17 sample of lunar basalt Featured Apollo Missions Print

Apollo 17 sample of lunar basalt

Apollo 17 sample of lunar basalt. The dark areas visible on the Moon (the lunar maria) are plains of flood basaltic lava flows. Lunar basalts differ from terrestrial ones in their high iron content and wide range of titanium concentrations. Lunar basalts range from 4.2 to 1.2 billion years old, with most being around 3 to 3.5 billion years old. The Apollo moon landings from 1969 to 1972 returned 2, 415 samples and over 380 kilograms of moon rock. Studying moon rock helps reveal the conditions present in the early solar system when the Moon and Earth were forming. This sample has a diameter of 15 millimetres and weighs 1.1 grams
