The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST or "Webb") is a space telescope that is planned to be one of the successors to the Hubble Space Telescope. The JWST will provide improved infrared resolution and sensitivity over Hubble, and will enable a broad range of investigations across the fields of astronomy and cosmology, including observing some of the most distant events and objects in the Manufacturer: Northrop Grumman, Ball Aerospace. ASPEN: Autonomous Scheduling and Planning Environment Asteroid Belt: A 1/2-AU-wide region between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter where the most asteroids are found. Astronomical Unit (AU): Unit of distance, equal to the distance of the Earth from the . THE SUN/EARTH-MOON L2 LIBRATION POINT Prepared for the NEXT GENERATION SPACE TELESCOPE PROGRAM I. SCOPE AND PURPOSE The purpose of this document is to provide definitions of the natural environment in the vicinity of the L2 libration point of the Sun/Earth-Moon system, for use in development of the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST).File Size: 1MB. Dealing with Space Radiation Orion, America’s next-generation spacecraft, will take astronauts to destinations beyond low-Earth orbit and thus outside the protective shield of Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic field. Without the protection Earth provides, the crew and systems of Orion will be exposed to the full spectrum of space radiation. To.

NASA is initiating an independent, external review over the next several months on the scope of the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) project to help ensure it would provide compelling scientific capability with an appropriate, affordable cost and a reliable schedule. ionizing) particles in the radiation environment [1]-[3].

of the current lunar radiation environment, to utilize these models to project our understanding of the lunar radiation environment (due to GCRs) back through the space age, and develop tools that may be used to specify the radiation environment in near-real-time. In this vein, we test the viability of a new online system, (P)redictions of Cited by: Teach Astronomy - The 4 main telescopes of the VLT, and the 4 auxiliary telescopes in Paranal, ChileFor most of human history we have learned about the universe with our eyes. Around years ago Dutch opticians learned to place two lenses together to make a telescope. The evidence is. NASA researchers are working hard to find their way around space radiation, a hazard future astronauts can't avoid if they hope to fly on long missions to Mars and eventually set foot on its surface.   An image captured by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Orion Nebula, an immense stellar nursery some 1, light-years away.
