Nearly 30 years after the NASA spacecraft visited the outermost planets in our solar system, Uranus and Neptune, the space agency is trying to get back.
Using technology advances over the past 30 years, a scientist from NASA and his team at Goddad Spacecraft at Greenbelt dreams of new tools that could potentially explore the atmosphere of both planets. Uranus and Neptune are relatively unexplored, the space agency said, despite the fact that Voyager 2 kept pictures of both planets in 1986 and 1989 respectively
"Available materials, filters, electronic detectors, computational flight and management and processing data has all improved, "Shahid Aslam, who heads the team developing the next-generation flying hardware, says in a statement." Honestly, we have better technology all the way. It is clear that now is the time to develop the next generation of this instrument for future atmospheric entry probes.
NASA wants to explore the moon TRIPON of NEPTUNE – the richest object of the Solar System may have ocean life
that helped to uncover the atmosphere of Jupiter and adapt to the weather conditions of both ice the giant, which according to the scientists would be important to the mission.
"You can actually learn a lot about net flow data, especially the sources and takeovers of Planetary Radiation," adds Ashlam. There are several differences between the proposed canvas and the device and what Jupiter has visited. These include the use of thermophile sensors (capable of converting heat or infrared wavelengths into electrical signals), infrared channels (for heat measurement), additional viewing angles, and a tighter field of observation.
It is also likely to be less
There are currently no plans to send a spacecraft to either Neptune or Uranus. They contain "a dirty mantle of water, ammonia and methane, and their atmosphere consists of molecular hydrogen, helium and methane." NASA added in his statement.
The color of the planets may be due to the level of methane in their atmosphere, but something else causes the distinctive colors of the two planets, adds Ashlam. Uranus appears as "foggy green-green," and Neptune is deep blue. NASA'S MISSION IS THE FIRST PLANET ON THE EARTH
In March, NASA scientists proposed a mission to get to know the largest moon of Neptune, Triton, some of which theoretically could hide the ocean beneath its surface.
