TIDBITS® DRIFTS THROUGH

SPACE

by Janet Spencer Neil Armstrong, while describing the first steps man took on the moon, admitted that he was also the first man to wet his pants on the moon. Come along with Tidbits as we explore space! FIRST FACTS • The first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, launched by the USSR in 1957, weighed only 184 lbs. (83 kg) and was a mere 22.8 inches (58 cm) in diameter. In 1958, the U.S. launched its first satellite, the Explorer. It weighed only 18 lbs. (8 kg). • In 1959, the Soviet craft Lunik 2 was the first man-made object to reach the moon. It landed so hard that the instruments were destroyed and no data was collected.

• Aladimir Komarov was the first cosmonaut to be killed in space. He launched on April 23, 1967, from the USSR aboard the spacecraft Soyuz 1. He was to orbit the earth 18 times in 25 hours, then come down to earth as a parachute slowed his descent. But the straps to the parachute broke and Komarov died.

• The spaceship Columbia, which took the Eagle and three astronauts to the moon in 1969, had a control panel which had 566 switches, 71 lights, 40 event indicators, and 24 instruments. • The first re-usable space shuttle was named “Enterprise” in honor of the success of the “Star Trek” series.

ASTRONAUT ANECDOTES

• Astronaut John Young was with Gus Grissom on the first manned space flight in 1965. Young smuggled a sandwich on board the capsule to supplement the boring fare offered by NASA. However, the crumbs from the sandwich threatened to ruin some of the equipment on board. Young was reprimanded by officials for his unauthorized snack.

• The first meal eaten on the moon, consumed by Armstrong and Aldrin, consisted of four bacon squares, three sugar cookies, peaches, pineapple-grapefruit drink, and coffee. • President Nixon placed the first phone call to the moon on July 21, 1969. He spoke to Aldrin and Armstrong in the lunar module.

DANGER ZONE

• Alan Shepard knocked a few golf balls around on the moon. But he missed the first shot, taking a mulligan. This earned him a lifetime membership in the U.S. Duffers Association of Newport, KY. They also awarded him the presidency of their first moon chapter. • When Navy Commander Pete Conrad set foot on the moon during the second lunar landing on November 19, 1969, he said, “Man, that may have been a small one for Neil Armstrong, but that’s a long one for me!” Conrad was only 5 foot 6 inches tall.

• When Alan Bean walked on the moon, he tried to fix a TV camera that was not working by hitting it with a hammer. He failed.

• A study done on a Spacelab mission showed that some microorganisms reproduce better in the weightlessness of space. This fact, coupled with the fact that human immune systems don’t tend to work as well in space, could spell trouble for future long-term astronauts. It is feared that unless great precautions are taken, certain bacteria may be able to invade a spacecraft and present grave danger to its inhabitants.

FAST FACTS

• Michael Collins walked in space twice during the Gemini 10 mission in 1966. When he returned, he filled out his travel voucher: $8 a day for 3 days, and he was reimbursed $24. He said later that he should have charged 7¢ a mile equaling $80,000, but acknowledged that one of the Mercury astronauts had already tried it, and had received in return a bill from NASA for a couple million dollars for the nonreusable rocket. • When Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin returned from the moon, they dutifully declared their lunar rocks and dust on customs form. FAR-OUT FACTS

• Researchers at the University of Chicago found multitudes of dust-sized diamond particles embedded in meteorites that may predate the sun and the Earth. These diamonds may have been formed in the atmosphere of an exploding star and then spewed across space up to 4.5 billion years ago. This suggests that

the universe is full of these minuscule diamonds.

• Scientists at the University of Hawaii have found two asteroids which they believe are composed almost entirely of metal. According to their spectrograph measurements (light bounced off the asteroids to tell their content) the asteroids are almost pure iron and nickel. These two objects come relatively close to Earth’s orbit. It is thought that since they are both more than two miles wide, their worth (at today’s market value), could top several trillion dollars each if they could ever be brought back to Earth. • The dust from Halley’s Comet (collected by the Vega 1 space probe), contain a rich assortment of organic compounds. The dust also held silicate materials and ices. The organic materials were mostly hydrocarbons and do not indicate the presence of actual life forms. SPACE TRASH

Scientists, engineers, and space planners in general are becoming increasingly concerned with the growing number of small pieces of space junk. The North American Aerospace Defense Command currently tracks more than 7,000 objects the size of a baseball or larger orbiting the Earth. Recent research appears to show there are many more large objects we aren’t tracking. One half of these small objects come from the 80 satellites that have broken up while in orbit, and there are probably millions of smaller particles stuck in Earth orbit. These particles are no small matter when it comes to space travel. A particle no more than 0.6 millimeters wide can penetrate one of the space suits currently used by NASA. When the

SPACE TRASH CONT’D

shuttle Challenger was orbiting in 1983, a small chip of paint hit the windshield and gouged a quarter-inch crater. The space debris can also wreak havoc on Earth-bound astronomers and delicate equipment in orbit. ASTONISHING ASTRONOMY

• On a clear night, the average person can see only 3,000 stars. If the sum of all starlight that falls on the Earth could be concentrated on one point, it would only equal a 100-watt bulb seen from a distance of 613 feet (187 m). • Just one square inch of the sun’s surface shines with the intensity of 300,000 candles. • The sun contains 99.9% of the solar system’s entire mass.

• The full moon is nine times as bright as the half moon, since the surface of the visible half moon is extremely rough and mountainous, which makes for more shadows and less reflected sunlight. QUICK BIT

• 12 men have walked on the surface of the moon. Their footprints will be visible for an estimated ten million years. Those dozen men have spent a total of 300 hours there, and they brought back 842 lbs. (381 kg) of lunar rock.

Q: I have the happiest and most pleasant dog on the planet - except when the mail carrier drops mail into our slot. Sadie growls and attacks the mail, then barks and growls until the carrier walks away. If I’m not home, mail is sometimes ripped apart. Try explaining to the gas company, “my dog ate the bill.” It doesn’t work. Any advice? A: From Sadie’s perspective, she’s trained the mailman; a few barks and growls and the person who drops all those papers through the door goes away. Voila! One idea is leave some sterilized bones or small Kong toys stuffed with treats for the mail carrier to drop through the mail slot. Soon, Sadie will begin to welcome the mail carrier, and any barks will be ones of excitement. The hope is she’ll be so busy chewing at the Kong or bone (to get the treats out) that she won’t bother with your mail. If this doesn’t work, consider keeping Sadie in another part of the house or providing a mailbox so the carrier doesn’t have to use the slot in the door.

Knit in the Park Day Saturday, August 10 2013, 11am to 3pm, Parkinson Recreation Centre, Kelowna.

WORD ORIGINS CONT’D Persian shah mat meaning “the king is dead.” • When Bradley, Voorhees, and Day formed an underwear company in 1876, they called their product BVDs. • The Hollywood stereotype of an Indian saying “How!” is based on the traditional Indian A-Hau meaning “Peace with you” or “All is well.” • The ancient Greeks used a resin called ‘mumia’ or ‘momie’ to preserve bodies, giving us mummies. • The word tip is an abbreviation for “to insure promptness.” • The German word frau means wife. It is a contraction of two German words, froh meaning joy, and weh meaning woe. • The word potpourri originally meant a stew. In French it literally means “putrid pot.”
