Stunning pictures of Vladivostok, Russia
I have never travelled to Vladivostok, far east in Russia, but I did have a look-see through the orbiting #Sentinel2 satellite. Simply stunning!
Mongolia from above
Navigating through the enormous data sets from the Copernicus programme, I wanted to focus on Mongolia this time. Here are some beauties I came across.
Eyes in the sky
Just watched the Antitrust movie from the 90s, which perhaps was on the verge before web 2.0 became a reality. Prior to web 2.0, Internet was slow and it would take ages just to download a media file like a mp3-file using Napster or the like. Video streaming was simply not arrived, the technology wasn’t […]
A view at Russian water flow in modified natural colors
Using the following settings to enhance the difference in the water in Sentinel Hub’s Playground tool, I grabbed some satellite images of Russian water flowing into the seas. Band: Natural color Atmospheric correction: on Gain: 4.3 Gamma: 0.4 Date: 12–07–2017 The results is so pleasing and delightful to look at. Here are some more examples […]
Developing 70mm analog film in space and beaming it back to Earth, losslessly!
I recently came across a story about how probes were sent out from Earth to orbit the Moon. Their mission was to take pictures of the Moon (including the far end), high resolution pictures with the goal to find a landing spot for the Apollo missions. Remember, this was fifty years ago and the camera […]
På en annen planet
Dersom du ikke er klar over det, så har mennesker sendt roboter så store som biler til andre planeter, for eksempel Mars, vår naboplanet. Planeten er langt unna og det er ikke noen gang sendt mennesker dit, selv om det er mange som jobber for å få det til. Planeten har ikke en levelig, pustbar […]
Space game sparked the creation of Unix
Space Travel is an early video game developed by Ken Thompson in 1969 that simulates travel in the solar system. The player flies their ship around a two-dimensional scale model of the solar system with no objectives other than to attempt to land on various planets and moons. The player can move and turn the […]
Generate beautiful background sci-fi space noise in linux command line
Here is a couple of examples of how you can generate beautiful background sounds directly in linux command line with the play command (install the vox package in your linux distribution). Sound in space (sure, lets image that would work) play -n -c1 synth whitenoise lowpass -1 120 lowpass -1 120 lowpass -1 120 gain […]
For lite fokus på Norge som romnasjon i skolen
Du kan lese mye om norsk romhistorie på Norsk Romsenter sine sider. Jeg har valgt å trekke ut enkelte punkter fra norsk romhistorie som etter min personlige mening er ALTFOR lite fokusert på i norsk skole. Innholdet i artikkelen på Norsk Romsenter sin side er uansett et minstekrav til hva elever i norsk skole burde […]
Five awesome space puns
I enjoy language and puns. When a sentence have more than one meaning, I find that refreshing. Here are five cool space themed puns, just because space is great too: The cost of a space program is astronomical. Even though Catholics in space are weightless, do they have mass? Einstein developed a theory about space, […]
Terminal game: Drive a car on the moon with moon-buggy
Not that many games on the command line are there? Well, here is one for you, moon-buggy. I could have included a fancy cover art, like commodore games in 80s and computer games in the 90s had a very graphical cover and then the game itself hadn’t that impressive graphics. Command line games are also […]
