Week in images

17/09/2021

News!  ESA presents the most beautiful images from the week of September 13-17, 2021. "A week in pictures," ESA wrote in its post. The images captured by ESA and its collaborators are fascinating. The images are both from space and from Earth.

Spain in Flames 

This is the first image to start posting. An image that shows us cum in the municipalities of Jubrique, Genalguacil and Estepona in southern Spain everything burns incessantly. As we have told you in other articles, Europe and America are devastated by fires. Copernicus Sentinel-2 captured these images from space on September 10, 2021. Due to the perforated ESA equipment, the Copernicus Emergency Mapping Service was activated automatically, warning civilians and authorities about the fire.

Astronauts outside the ISS

In this image ESA and NASA captured how astronauts from the ISS go outside the ISS for a technical mission in space. Thomas Pesquet (left) and JAXA astronaut Aki Hoshide (right). More about the mission, you can find out in our old article: https://www.bailey-universe.com/l/nasa-is-live-with-two-astronauts-outside-the-iss/

Supernovae 

In this image, the NASA / ESA Hubble telescope captures supernovae that are in 2016, but not in 2019, very strange. It's hard to say that they can disappear in less than 3-4 years. These images were captured in a galaxy called MACS J0138. A phenomenon quite difficult for astronomers to explain, but it is possible that it happened and probably another galaxy could be behind it, according to ESA.

Image from the ISS

This image shows a piece of Earth photographed from space. This image is photographed by Thomas Pesquet, who is already in space for 6 months. ESA claims that the picture shows Pyongyangm Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). And it's not just an image, the astronaut took about 40 images. which he sent spe eSA, and then ESA, rotated them and positioned them like a puzzle in a perfect image. ESA also claimed that the images were captured on September 15, 2021 at 00:04 GMT.

Rosalind Franklin's rover 

Yes, something very important in our era. This is the first time a rover has drilled the most on Earth. This is the Rosalind Franklin rover in the picture, from ESA, which drilled more into the Earth than any other Martian rover. Chia even more than Perseverence. So ESA could take it to Mars, so it might find much more than Perseverence found. The Frankiln rover rustled approx. 1.7 m in the ground, a lot for a rover.

The moon on the ISS 

So, yes, it's an image that you'd say is taken from a movie, but no, it's not from a movie, it's just real. This image was captured from the ISS by ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet on May 30, 2021. It is a very valuable image and it is spectacular!

Lake Maharloo 

This is an image captured from space. This is a slightly different lake, meaning it has a very rare color. And of course, the one who did the fortography is Copernicus Sentinel-2, one of ESA's most powerful space probes. the lake is 1400 m (4593.18 ft) above sea level, so besides being rare, it is unusually high. That's because it's 27 km (16.78 mi) southeast of Shiraz in southwestern Iran, ESA said.

Solar cells 

The solar cells that are being developed by CESI can also be used on Earth, ESA said. These cells charge solar and in a few years, it may be able to produce enough energy to meet a person's requirements.

Guyana spaceport

In this image ESA shows us that great preparations are being made in French Guiana for the launch of Ariane 6. Researchers, scientists, engineers and other employees are working to complete preparations for the launch of Ariane 6, which began in May 2021.

Image from Hubble 

This image shows a lot of swollen dust bubbles and gas shells from an eruption. These images were captured by the famous NASA / ESA Hubble Telescope in a nebula surrounding the star AG Carinae. This image was captured on Hubble's 31st anniversary in 2021. It's been a long time since then, but it still remains one of the images of the year!

We wish success to ESA and NASA and the other collaborators to send even more images weekly and success to the next missions!
