ESPECIAL 12: 50 ANOS DO GRANDE PASSO PARA A HUMANIDADE. @universoaqui -----------------------------------------------------------
Hoje completamos 50 anos do grande passo para a Humanidade evoluir, entender nosso sistema solar e se projetar para explorar não só nossa Terra nesse universo imenso, mas tornarmos exploradores espaciais, e um novo início de projetos espaciais. Após o lançamento da Missão Apollo 11 (que custou aproximadamente em valores atuais mais de 131,8 bilhões de dólares e 8 anos de investimentos e pura engenharia) através do grandioso Saturno V no dia 16 de Julho às 13:32h, três dias depois, em 19 de Julho às 17:21:50h UTC, a Apollo 11 passou atrás da Lua e realizaram vinte órbitas nela, no dia seguinte 20 de Julho começaram a se preparar para a descida em terreno lunar e às 17:44h o módulo de comando se separou do módulo lunar. Após 104:45h desde o Lançamento da SATURNO V, às 20:17:40h de domingo, 20 de julho de 1969, pela primeira vez uma nave tripulada pousa na LUA. Às 02:51h do dia 21 de julho Neil Armstrong Tornou-se o primeiro homem a pisar na Lua, caminhando mais ou menos 02:45h por lá. Quase 24 horas depois, no dia 21 de Julho, eles já estavam a caminho da Terra, que durou 64:44 horas até chega na Terra em 24 de julho às 16:44h. A tripulação foi resgatada a 2,66 mil km ao leste da Ilha Wake, 380 km ao sul do Atol Johnston no Oceano Pacífico após oito dias no espaço, 195:18:35 horas de viagem e mais de 770 mil km percorridos no espaço. Sem dúvida 20 de Julho de 1969 nos mostrou que somos capazes de sermos uma espécie espacial. Que venham mais descobertas, nosso próximo passo é colonizar outro PLANETA.

On this day 50 years ago, my dad sat in the living room with his father. Glued to the TV along with millions of people around the world watching a brave and pioneering team land on the moon for the first time in human history. Today as I sit in my father's living room watching the latest Apollo11 documentary, chowing down bbq from Phil's Meat Market and beer from Pelican Brewery, I am still amazed and I aspired by what was accomplished. Human beings are incredible.
We came in peace for all mankind.

THE THERMOMETER WENT SCHRÖDINGER!
In our world, temperature is just one thing. If a freezer is cold enough to make ice, any water you put inside it should freeze. But quantum mechanics allows for objects to exist in uncertainty between multiple states, in a sense to be more than one thing at the same time — just like Schrödinger's cat is both alive and dead in his thought experiment. And in 2018, we learned that this applies to temperature as well, since physicists at the University of Exeter in England had found that a similar state of limbo may exist for temperatures. Quantum objects can, from a certain point of view, be both hot and cold at the same time!😲😳

NGC 5189 (Gum 47, IC 4274, nicknamed Spiral Planetary Nebula) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Musca. It was discovered by James Dunlop on 1 July 1826.
For many years, well into the 1960s, it was thought to be a bright emission nebula.
It was Karl Gordon Henize in 1967 who first described NGC 5189 as quasi-planetary based on its spectral emissions.
Seen through the telescope it seems to have an S shape, reminiscent of a barred spiral galaxy.
The S shape, together with point-symmetric knots in the nebula, have for a long time hinted to astronomers that a binary central star is present.
The Hubble Space Telescope imaging analysis showed that this S shape structure is indeed two dense low-ionization regions: one moving toward the north-east and another one moving toward the south-west of the nebula, which could be a result of a recent outburst from the central star.
Observations with the Southern African Large Telescope have finally found a white dwarf companion in a 4.04 day orbit around the rare low-mass Wolf-Rayet type central star of NGC 5189.
NGC 5189 is estimated to be 546 parsecs or 1,780 light years away from Earth.
Other measurements have yielded results up to 900 parsecs (~3000 light-years). 84.
Today, we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 first landing on the moon. This historic accomplishment has forever changed how we, humans see ourselves both here on earth and in the universe. Without the research and development that went into the Apollo missions, many advancements in important areas such as supercomputers, microcomputers, software, and microprocessors may not have been achieved. The critical work that NASA scientists & engineers did in the 1960’s enabled a dramatic shift in the miniaturization of key subsystems such as electronics, robotics, rocketry, computer hardware, aeronautics, and transportation. Basically, The scientists & engineers had to innovate in order to solve a complex problem. To leave Earth’s gravity and land on the moon, new technologies had to be developed that before hadn’t been thought of.
Armstrong’s famous words “That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” future technologies needed to land men & women on Mars will most likely also spark a new technological revolution and will positively impact future generations here on Earth. Happy 50th anniversary Apollo 11 🌍🚀 🌔 👩🚀 🎊🎂
