NASA Invites Students to Join the Artemis Generation at SciFest Virtual Event
NASA shared dazzling shot of the universe from thier official instagram page today.
“Gazing into the blue, blue eyes of the universe.
Humanity has “eyes” that can detect all different types of light through telescopes around the globe and a fleet of observatories in space. From radio waves to gamma rays, this “multiwavelength” approach to astronomy is crucial to getting a complete understanding of objects in space.
This is galaxy cluster Abell 2744. Galaxy clusters are the largest objects in the universe held together by gravity, temperatures of tens of millions of degrees, which glow brightly in X-rays, and can be observed across millions of light years between the galaxies. This image combines X-rays from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory (diffuse blue emission) with optical light data from the Hubble Space Telescope (red, green, and blue).” they mentioned in the post.
According to the offiicla website, they Invites Students to Join the Artemis Generation at SciFest Virtual Event. “Venture with NASA to discover the future of flight, understand the portrait of planet Earth, and take the next steps in exploration at SciFest, the virtual STEM expo from the USA Science and Engineering Festival. The free event, which runs from Saturday, Sept. 26, through Saturday, Oct. 3, will feature NASA researchers, scientists, engineers, and technicians discussing various topics related to science, technology, engineering and math.
A virtual greeting from Thomas Zurbuchen, associate for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, invites the Artemis Generation to enter and explore the NASA Hall, where visitors can download games and activities and ask NASA what it takes to join its mission to make new discoveries in aeronautics, science, and space.
With the Artemis program, we are working toward landing the first woman and the next man on the Moon in 2024 and establishing sustainable exploration by the end of the decade. While exploring the Moon with more robots and humans than ever before, we will test the technologies and capabilities we need to send the first astronauts to Mars. NASA aims to inspire, educate and engage the next generation of explorers on that journey.
