NASA’s Eyes 1.0
NASA’s Eyes 1.0 Experience Earth and our solar system, the universe and the spacecraft exploring them, with immersive apps. The Cassini mission launched in 1997 and spent seven years traveling to Saturn, arriving in 2004. Cassini is the first spacecraft to orbit Saturn, and has provided a treasure trove of data and images of the entire Saturnian system. Now you can ride onboard the spacecraft throughout the entire mission (20 years) using “Eyes on Cassini” on your Mac or PC. In this interactive visualization, you can ride along with the Cassini spacecraft at any time during the entire mission, a period of 20 years! For example, watch the arrival at Saturn on July 1st, 2004, or see Cassini launch the Huygens probe and follow it to Titan, the largest moon of Saturn. You can see where Cassini was when it captured iconic images, and you can compare the real images to the visualization. You can even ride along with Cassini during its final 20 orbits, in which it zips between Saturn and its rings -- a place no spacecraft has explored before. And you can watch these things happen at actual speed, or much, much faster. All of this and more is waiting to be explored. Humanity’s farthest and longest-lived spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2, achieve 40 years of operation and exploration this August and September. Despite their vast distance, they continue to communicate with NASA daily, still probing the final frontier. Their story has not only impacted generations of current and future scientists and engineers, but also Earth’s culture, including film, art and music. Each spacecraft carries a Golden Record of Earth sounds, pictures and messages. Since the spacecraft could last billions of years, these circular time capsules could one day be the only traces of human civilization. In this interactive visualization, you ...

It features a spreadsheet-like data entry form, and supports both interactive user interface and scripting. This program was originally designed as a follow-up to PALSTAT, a software package for paleontological data analysis written by P.D. Ryan, D.A.T. Harper and J.S. Whalley (Ryan et al. 1995). Through continuous development for more than 15 years, PAST has grown into a comprehensive statistics package used not only by paleontologists, but in many fields of life science, earth science, engineering and economics. Further explanations of many of the techniques implemented together with case histories are found in the book “Paleontological data analysis” (Hammer & Harper 2005). Complete PDF manual here. Past works under Windows 7, Windows 10, and Mac OSX. Changes: 3.20 Wavelet analysis for time series with unequal spacing (Weighted Wavelet Z-transform) CABFAC factor analysis of ecological data, with calibration (environmental reconstruction) Correlation length analysis for point patterns (alternative to Ripley’s K) Minimal Spanning Tree analysis for point patterns (alternative to Nearest Neighbours) Linear regression of 3D landmarks, with 3D visualization Ctrl-key shortcuts changed to Cmd-key on Mac Option for colour coding of third variate in bubble plot Option to set number of displayed decimals in the spreadsheet Improved clipping of plots to graphics window Improved XY plot for multiple XY graphs (pairs of columns can be given colours and symbols) Numerical output added to normal probability plot Bug fix: Incorrect scaling of Moran’s I (spatial autocorrelation) Bug fix: Anderson-Darling two-sample test was incorrect for N>650 ...

RASAero II 1.0.1.0
RASAero II 1.0.1.0 RASAero II is a combined aerodynamic analysis and flight simulation software package for model rockets and high power rockets, amateur rockets, and sounding rockets. RASAero II can also be used for predicting aerodynamic coefficients for use in other flight simulation programs for orbital rockets. The RASAero II aerodynamic prediction methods are the most accurate available for model, high power, and amateur rockets, and are of equivalent accuracy to professional engineering method aerodynamic analysis codes used for missiles, sounding rockets, and space launch vehicles. In testing in comparison with high power rocket barometric altimeter data, optical tracking data, accelerometer-based flight data, and GPS flight data, the average RASAero II altitude prediction error was 3.38%, with 78.8% of the RASAero II flight simulation altitude predictions within +/- 10% of the flight data, and 42.4% of the altitude predictions within +/- 5% of the flight data. The RASAero II aerodynamic predictions include drag coefficient at zero degrees angle of attack, drag coefficient with a non-zero angle of attack, and lift coefficient and normal force coefficient with angle of attack; for both power-on (thrust phase) and power-off (coast phase). Center of pressure is predicted both as a function of Mach number and as a function of angle of attack. Aerodynamic coefficients are predicted for the subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic flight regimes, from Mach 0.01 to Mach 25. The RASAero II aerodynamic prediction methods and the RASAero II software have been calibrated against NACA and NASA wind tunnel model data, free-flight model data and sounding rocket data, missile aerodynamic data, and professional engineering method missile aerodynamic analysis programs, against which in comparison tests RASAero II has demonstrated equivalent numerical accuracy. RASAero II release history: Version 1.0.1.0 – Release Date August 5, 2016 Changed the recommended stability margin for subsonic Mach ...
