Hadfield ISS news

As we roll toward the close of Global Astronomy Month, how about preserving your GAM experience in the form of a poem—and submitting it to our GAM2013 AstroPoetry Contest?
The world of 2013 is sparkling with poetic ideas, and we’ve already received some 50 poems from 8 countries—China, Indonesia, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Sri Lanka, U.K., and U.S.A.  By the April 30 deadline, let’s double the number of poems and countries, for the best world poetry competition ever!
Anything or thought, whether large as the expanding Universe or small as a grain of comet dust, can furnish the content for an astropoem, as the Japanese poet Buson showed us with this haiku more than 300 years ago: “Twilight flower-field… / moonrise in the eastern sky / sunset in the west.”  And just last year, GAM2012 contest winner Christine Rueter followed in Buson’s footsteps with this: “HAIKU FOR SPACE SHUTTLE DISCOVERY / Through your small windows / we saw our fractious planet / blue and white and whole.”
Our contest is for everyone, with three categories—children, grades 1-6; young adults, grades 7-12; and adults, age 18 and older.  Submit your poem on the contest entry form.  And for inspiration, check out last year’s contest winners and our ongoing AWB AstroPoetry Blog.

You Can Change the World’s Skies by Christopher Kyba

"The battle against light pollution will only be won once a large fraction of the population can explain in their own words what is wrong with current lighting. To get from here to there, we need everyone who understands the problem to talk about it with their friends, family, and co-workers. So how do you talk about light pollution?" Continue reading...

Mount Tai and the Starry Sky by Xiaohua Wang

"Mount Tai is located in Shandong Province in eastern China. It is called the "chieftain" among five famous mountains in China. In 1987, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) declared Mount Tai a World Cultural and Natural Heritage Site. However, after 90 years, light pollution has appeared at Mount Tai. The city of Tai’an near the mountain has grown 30-fold; it has a population of nearly 5.5 million and consumes 10 billion KWH of electricity a year." Continue reading...

A Statewide Star Party by Amy Sayle

"Across a 500-mile swath of North Carolina, from the mountains to the Outer Banks, 45 sites planned skywatching sessions for the public on April 5th, as the kickoff to the 2013 North Carolina Science Festival. Since the star party date fell at the beginning of International Dark Sky Week and during a GLOBE at Night campaign, each site was asked to educate their audiences about light pollution and encourage them to document the darkness of the sky at the star party and later on in their own neighborhoods." Continue reading...

Spaceflight Dolphin - An Art and Technology Payload for the Space Shuttleby Richard Clar

"The first real opportunity for individuals or institutions in the world to access space at a very reasonable cost arose from NASA’s Get-Away-Special Program (GAS) that was announced in 1976. Artists were not excluded per se from the GAS Program as long as they could satisfy the basic requirement that GAS payloads must have some human or technical benefit. NASA would not fly art just for art’s sake and was very strict about this requirement. Subsequently, four artists managed to meet this criterion and have their art payloads accepted into NASA’s GAS Program."Continue reading...

Shrimp Cocktail – since the Apollo days by Charles Bourland

"Shrimp Cocktail has been in NASA food systems since the Apollo days and is still one of the most popular astronaut foods. Shrimp are very conducive to freeze drying. When processed properly, the dehydrated shrimp are very similar to fresh shrimp after water is added. Astronaut Story Musgrave (STS-6, STS-51F, STS-33, STS-44, STS-61, STS-80)  liked shrimp cocktail so much that he requested it for every meal, every day for the duration of the mission." Continue reading...

Chocolate Pudding Cake: a favourite at ISS by Charles Bourland

"Chocolate Pudding Cake is one of the popular ISS deserts and is easy to make compared to other space food recipes. The recipes are complex because many ingredients start from scratch and are commercial food service products. Some of the more complex space food recipes were not included in the Astronaut’s Cookbook because the ingredients were not available and special equipment is required to process." Continue reading...
