NASA posted the ‘Mystic Mountain’ as its image of the day.
It was like seeing a glimpse of colorful hues performing a chaotic waltz, a tempest of blue, red, and green. The contrasting colors created a masterpiece that was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.
The ‘Mystic Mountain’ lies in the Carina Nebula which is 7,500 light-years away.
According to NASA the image was captured in 2010. The colors in this composite image correspond to the glow of oxygen (blue), hydrogen and nitrogen (green) and sulfur (red).—AAC
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has launched the Lunar Loo Challenge to call on the global community to design compact toilets that can operate in both microgravity and lunar gravity.
The new design may be adapted for use in the Artemis lunar landers as NASA prepares to return to the moon by 2024.
“Although space toilets already exist and are in use (at the International Space Station, for example), they are designed for microgravity only. NASA is looking for a next-generation device that is smaller, more efficient, and capable of working in both microgravity and lunar gravity,” according to NASA.
NASA’s Lunar Loo challenge has a total prize purse of $35,000 that will be shared among the teams submitting the top three designs in the Technical category.
NASA is also encouraging the next generation of space explorers, engineers, and scientists, to also design new concepts through the Junior Category. For all the details, visit https://www.herox.com/LunarLoo. AAC
