NASA Team Finds Noxious Ice Cloud on Saturn's Moon Titan Researchers with NASA's Cassini mission found evidence of a toxic hybrid ice in a wispy cloud high above the south pole of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. The finding is a new demonstration of the complex chemistry occurring in Titan's atmosphere-in this case, cloud formation in the giant moon's stratosphere-and part of a collection of processes that ultimately helps deliver a smorgasbord of organic molecules to Titan's surface. Inv...

ESO's fleet of telescopes in Chile have detected the first visible counterpart to a gravitational wave source. These historic observations suggest that this unique object is the result of the merger of two neutron stars. The cataclysmic aftermaths of this kind of merger - long-predicted events called kilonovae - disperse heavy elements such as gold and platinum throughout the Universe. This discovery, published in several papers in the journal Nature and elsewhere, also provides the strongest ev...

For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. Shortly after 8:41 a.m. EDT on Aug. 17, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a pulse of high-energy light from a powerful explosion, which was immediately reported to astronomers around the globe as a short gamma-ray burst. The scientists at the National S...

The first full-scale model of the rocket motor that will propel Ariane 6 and Vega-C into orbit has been cast and filled with inert propellant for testing at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. The P120C is the largest solid-propellant rocket motor ever built in one segment. Each P120C will hold over 140 tonnes of propellant in a carbon fibre casing almost 11.5 m long and about 3.4 m in diameter. It is derived from Vega's current first stage motor, the P80, which holds 88 tonnes of propell...

There's no map showing all the billions of exoplanets hiding in our galaxy -- they're so distant and faint compared to their stars, it's hard to find them. Now, astronomers hunting for new worlds have established a possible signpost for giant exoplanets. A new study finds that giant exoplanets that orbit far from their stars are more likely to be found around young stars that have a disk of dust and debris than those without disks. The study, published in The Astronomical Journal, focused on ...

Astronomers have identified a bumper crop of dual supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. This discovery could help astronomers better understand how giant black holes grow and how they may produce the strongest gravitational wave signals in the Universe. The new evidence reveals five pairs of supermassive black holes, each containing millions of times the mass of the Sun. These black hole couples formed when two galaxies collided and merged with each other, forcing their superma...

    Demonstration of xLuna on an Autonomous Rover - European Space Agency

    The xLuna project aims at extending an existing free/open-source kernel making it fit for use in on-board space applications, both for payloads and avionics. The rationale behind xLuna is to supply the European Space industry with a reliable Linux based kernel that can be used for both payload and avionics applications. It will include features such as standard programming interfaces (e.g. POSIX), co-existence of real and non real time tasks, and context isolation.

    The goal of this project is to test and demonstrate the xLuna system in a real scenario.

    -Development and specification of performance tests.

     

    Primary technologies and tools: RTEMS, Snapgear, Leon2, C, Python.

     

     

    Phileas – Guidance Control System - APTS

    Phileas is a vehicle concept developed by APTS. The purpose of the guidance control system (GCS) is to control the vehicle motion in semi-automatic mode. It performs precision docking on the raised platforms and automatic steering on routes specifically prepared for this purpose. In these routes, a trail of magnetic reference markers has been laid in the road surface. Automatic steering and precision docking makes it possible to stop with a constant minimal distance between the door thresholds and the platform edge. The result is a flush step alignment enabling passengers to quickly enter and exit the bus, thus limiting stop times and keeping the average speed as high as possible. Critical Software has been working alongside APTS in the Guidance Control System software. The GCSW is an high integrity software and has to respect the demanding safety standards applicable to railways solutions of this kind. High software SIL levels must be achieved.

    Main tasks:

    - CanOpen protocol requirement specification respecting SIL 3;

     -CanOpen architecture specification respecting SIL 3 requirements.

     -J1939 protocol requirement specification;

     -J1939 architecture specification.
