SpaceX successfully launched the newest NASA Tess telescope (Video)
And so, the space went to another super NASA created to replace Kepler, and will be for a couple of years to probe the surrounding space. By the way, Russia or anything like that yet, although I would like to see and Russian telescope in orbit with similar search parameters.
Thanks to the development of private space on April 18, at 22:51, Ilona Musk`s rocket with the most modern NASA telescope TESS (eng. Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite). As shown by the observation, at the moment the telescope is operating normally and is already deploying its solar panels. Launched a Falcon 9 rocket with a military range in Florida. The weather was at Cape Canaveral in Florida for a long time windy, so the start of the satellite was repeatedly postponed, but as it turns out all I was doing was for the success of the mission, now no one will remember that the telescope worked so hard to get to orbital height. The orbit of the telescope is complex, it will be tilted and with a transitional height. In order for the telescope to put the desired orbital skyscraper with the selected parameters, the near future will be from the ground to adjust the operation of shunting engines. In the most remote point the satellite is at altitude 376 000km and in a very low position at a height of 108 000 km For the transition to such an orbit will take at least 2 months of adjustment. As conceived by NASA satellite will rotate at twice the frequency of the one with which the Moon turns around the Earth. It will take at least as many as 13.7 days that TESS is checked around the Earth once. The orbit is quite stable, it can be used for long-term projects with minimal orbit correction. Elon Musk sent a satellite into space on the already flying into orbit of the first stage, it flew more than once and always came back home. Now, it was decided to dispose of, it has already earned a replacement and salary. This time step again caught in the ocean and it successfully landed by itself on a platform that floated in 302 miles from the launch pad. For withdrawal of and return the first stage fewer just
8 minutes 20 seconds. The stage is, but flying will not be, it seems to disassemble, set up, replace what you need and on the basis of the source material to create new traction horse from the company Ilona Mask. Well done, no words!
What is this monster TESS that the press trumpets
Engineers in NASA is not the first year working on the device, which should replace the obsolete NASA telescope - "Kepler" (Kepler). Kepler has been working for 9 long years. He flies around the Earth and around the Sun. Looking for the telescope of a distant exoplanet. But now it turns out that on Board there is no fuel and refuel in space is difficult. It is easier to create a different device than to fly and pump fuel into the available design. No fuel in the tanks will not be able to point the telescope where to go, so Kepler in fact already died and will be showing and studying now that will be taken by fate in a mirror lens.
The telescope TESS will not have such an orbit, but he will be watching with the same or perhaps greater zeal for the distant, ekzoplanete, as up to this time did Kepler. The camera system on the telescope TESS will allow you to track the transit method of finding exoplanets in distant star systems. The telescope itself is essentially a few small photo sensors with high sensitivity and resolution of 67.2 megapixels. Telescope < strong>TESS< / strong > is a set of small telescopes that can easily everyone find something interesting at a distance of 100 light years or a little further. Kepler in this regard could look a single object, which will be the will of fate at a distance of 3 thousand light years. Kepler was all good, but sector seizing have him not enough big, to look with greater productivity. Decided to shorten the distance for an overview, but increased the productivity of observation in 20 times. This telescope will scan the entire surrounding space for the removal of our galaxy in a couple of years.
