Episode 7 – “We don’t have ancient Greeks on other planets”

This week we talk about how sciences can weight a planet, discuss gravity, and the explosion of a military weather satellite while in orbit.

Weather Satellite Explodes

Ways to Measure Planetary Mass

  • Geometric (size and density), this doesn’t always work well
  • By triangulation and measurement of orbits of natural or artificial satellites.

Gravity

Planetary Ranging

A variety of ranging techniques can be used, including:

Fun Paper Friday

THE ASTEROID REDIRECT MISSION AND SUSTAINABLE HUMAN EXPLORATION, Gates et al.

This week we talk about capturing an asteroid with a bag and a pull string, or a spider like lander. The asteroid is then explored and moved into a lunar-like orbit for further study. The best part of all is that the ship will have an international docking system so anyone can go do science. A step towards open source science!
