interesting stuff:


I decided to get this tattoo last week. It, in case you didn’t know, is the pulsar map that was on Pioneer 10/11 as well as on the Voyager golden record. The lines and dashes represent binary code which spell out the frequency and period of the radio wave emissions (which is unique to each pulsar), and the longer line represents the distance from our star to the center of the Milky Way. Supposedly, if an alien civilization were to find the record they could find our solar system based on the 14 pulsars that have been mapped out. A tribute to Carl…and I suppose it will come in handy when finding my way back home.

So, India’s space program (ISRO) successfully reached Mars *cough* on the first try *cough*….what does that mean? And why is it so important in the first place?

The video above (courtesy of The Curious Engineer) describes just that. The Mars Orbiter Mission will - at the aid of the satellite spacecraft “Mangal Yaan” - above all things, search for methane in the Martian atmosphere.

Pay close attention to every second of this, because ISRO’s MOM was not an easy feat. Not like any space exploration mission is ever “easy”, but the Mars Orbiter Mission in particular was achieved at low cost and succeeded on the first attempt via an insertion process that hinges on everything going perfectly according to plan.

And again, congratulations, India and the ISRO!

Have 14:21 minutes to spare? Watch this mini-documentary on the significance of ISRO’s Mars Orbiter Mission and what they aim to achieve!
