Our ambition for Earth 300 was fearless from the start: we wanted to build the Olympic Torch of global science, to expand our knowledge and understanding of the universe, both above and below the ocean’s surface.
The result is a collaborative, next-generation platform for state-of-the-art science at sea. Our radical design – iconic, intelligent, aesthetically-pleasing – is intentional. It’s a 300-metre fabrication of the future. The 13-storey Science Sphere and cantilevered Observation Deck are the most obvious and eye-catching examples.
One hundred percent emission free.
We have a choice of what kind of difference we want to make in the world. One of the choices we need to make is to become carbon free. We’ve found a way to get there.
It’s called the Molten Salt Reactor, a new generation of atomic energy that’s safe, sustainable and 100% emission free. The marine version of the Molten Salt Reactor will be small, with few moving parts, and provides the sustainable, clean energy needed to move ocean transportation into the future. Earth 300 is the first research vessel to be pursuing this revolutionary new technology.
EARTH 300 RESEARCH SUPERYACHT
Working together for the world.
Earth 300 represents an unparalleled opportunity for academia and private enterprise to collaborate on the most pressing challenges of our time. We’re bringing 160 of the brightest minds into our Science Sphere and equipping them with a level of technology never before seen on an ocean-going research vessel.
We believe that scientists deserve to be treated like rock-stars, because they are; they are the ones who are at the frontlines of all discovery and advancement, they invent vaccines and protect our health; they allow us to move humanity forward.
Sea the future.
Oceans are our future. They are the beating heart of the planet, regulating everything from crops to climate to providing us with every second breath we take.
Our vessel promises to reframe what a floating research laboratory can achieve. The capabilities that our scientists will have at their disposal are exceptional: artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, real time data processing. We will also have the latest quantum computer on board, the first to take to the high seas.
We are combining exploration with education so that consumers become contributors. The interaction is immediate and constant. Imagine embarking on one of the most exhilarating and meaningful voyages of a lifetime where you’ll witness the cutting edge of science – you’re sitting under the tree with Newton when the apple falls, you’re walking on the moon with Armstrong and Aldrin, you’re holding Galileo’s telescope with one hand and a fine libation with the other. You will create and imagine with some of the most eminent thinkers of the day. You’ll make history.
We love life and want to ensure that humanity survives the future. It’s why we are representing tomorrow by setting aside berths for some of the world’s most promising young students. We want to inspire and empower the next generation of global leaders to step up and help lead us into the future.

Lockheed Martin, General Motors Team to Further Lunar Exploration with Autonomous Moon Rover
Only 5% of the Moon’s surface has been explored by the human race, and to reach the other 95%, NASA astronauts on the Artemis program are going to need some serious wheels.
That’s why Lockheed Martin and General Motors have teamed up to design the next generation of lunar rovers, capable of transporting astronauts across farther distances on the lunar surface. Unlike the Apollo days when the rovers only traveled four miles from the landing site, Artemis astronauts will go farther and explore more of the Moon’s surface than ever before to conduct critical scientific research.
This type of mobility is a huge step – or a giant leap – toward enabling and sustaining long-term exploration of the lunar surface. The science that Artemis astronauts will conduct will help NASA better understand the fundamental planetary processes underlying our solar system, and will help us better understand and protect Earth.
Not only will these vehicles be well-equipped to go the distance, they will also be driver optional. Autonomous, self-driving systems would enable the vehicle to operate with or without humans onboard, and pave the way for future human missions, commercial payload services and enhanced scientific utility.
“These next-generation rover concepts will dramatically extend the exploration range of astronauts as they perform high-priority science investigation on the Moon that will ultimately impact humanity’s understanding of our place in the solar system,” said Rick Ambrose, executive vice president, Lockheed Martin Space.
A Lockheed Martin-GM rover would be able to preposition itself autonomously near a landing site prior to the astronauts’ arrival, and astronauts would have the ability to task the rover from the Human Landing System or the orbiting lunar Gateway to conduct science operations without a driver. This enables NASA to fit more science into a smaller amount of time, and allows us to uncover the critical information that the other 95% of the lunar surface may hold.
Zooming on the Moon
Driving on the Moon is not your average off-roading experience. The new lunar rover concept would be expertly outfitted to drive over rugged terrain in the dark and cold.
Unlike Earth and even Mars, days and nights on the Moon are just under 14 days long. The Lockheed Martin-GM rovers would be designed to survive and even operate in the two-week long night that sees temperatures of down to -280 degrees Fahrenheit, and day-time temperatures of 260 Fahrenheit.
“The biggest difference is, when you design for the Moon and for space applications, the force of gravity is different and has to be taken into account,” said Madhu Raghavan, Global Research & Development Group Manager at GM. “There are extreme temperature swings, and the radiation in space becomes a challenge in terms of systems design. You’re also operating in a vacuum and designing your systems to withstand the shock of the actual launch.”
The vehicles’ design would expertly mitigate these challenges. Lockheed Martin has built multiple deep space robotic spacecraft that have gone to the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, asteroids, comets and other destinations throughout the solar system.
“We’ve led missions to other planetary bodies for decades, building spacecraft that can survive the high radiation environment, cold temperatures, and yet be very light and very reliable,” said Kirk Shireman, vice president, Lunar Exploration Campaigns at Lockheed Martin. “This is what we specialize in, and we are more than capable of meeting and exceeding this challenge for NASA.”
A Dynamic Duo
With both brains and brawn, the Lockheed Martin-GM alliance brings together innovations from both companies to make transformative vehicles, drawing on strong legacies of engineering and performance from both companies.
“GM is a world leader in automobile manufacturing and technology, and Lockheed Martin is a world leader in spacecraft. The two companies joining forces to build a mobility system on the Moon just makes perfect sense.”
Kirk Shireman, vice president, Lunar Exploration Campaigns at Lockheed Martin
Lockheed Martin will lead the team by leveraging its legacy and history working with NASA.
“Our goal is to build a vehicle that is affordable, that exceeds our customer requirements, and to do it rapidly. Digital tools are how we achieve that,” Shireman said. “We’ve demonstrated already across programs and proposals the speed, affordability and reliability that digital tools enable, and we fully expect to leverage and expand on that experience with this program.”
GM brings to the table decades of experience designing for on and off-road environments, a strong focus on quality and human safety, and a shared mission.
“There’s a lot of synergy between our two companies – we complement each other well,” said Jeff Ryder, vice president, Growth & Strategy at GM Defense. “The lunar rover designs for extreme off-road environments have a lot of similarities with our tactical military vehicles on the GM Defense side. It’s great to work with a company like Lockheed Martin who has a shared mission of supporting the warfighter.”
GM brings to the table state-of-the-art battery-electric technologies and propulsion systems that are central to the company’s extensive electric vehicle strategy. Research from the development of battery and power systems for the lunar rover may ultimately spur advances on electric vehicles back on Earth, too.
“Because the operating conditions are so extreme in space, our work on this project will help us make safer and better batteries back on Earth,” Raghavan said. “The Moon and Mars are, of course, totally unstructured, unlined roads. Designing for that environment will ultimately just make our EV capabilities on Earth that much stronger.”
Enabling a Celestial Human Future
As it was during the Apollo era, every minute of the Artemis astronauts’ time on the lunar surface will be carefully planned in order to maximize the science value of having humans back on the lunar surface for the first time since 1972.
So, what is NASA hoping to uncover on the uncharted territory that remains of the Moon? The Moon is often referred to as the cornerstone of the solar system. Scientific investigations on the Artemis program will help NASA understand the risks and potential resources of the Moon’s South Pole, where they hope to establish the Artemis Base Camp concept by the end of the decade.
“The technology has evolved so much in the last 50 years, to the point where we can now use autonomy for these vehicles to aid in the astronauts’ missions,” Shireman said. “Autonomy will enable these rovers to carry tools and samples, and allows the crews to do more in the time they have there on the surface.”
To achieve our ultimate goal of utilizing the resources on the Moon to sustain a human presence, Shireman says we’ll need to have a reliable way of transporting those resources. This is the first major step in that direction.
“I’ve worked on many space programs in the past, but this isn’t just another space mission,” said Ryder. “It’s the return to, and permanent habitation of the Moon. It’s not just cool or interesting –it’s historical. It’s a major milestone in human activity in space.”
According to Raghavan, he’s seen a major influx of job applicants for open positions on his project team. “This is the stuff you dream about as a kid in science class,” he said. “People want to be part of this.”

Other scientific activities that surface mobility could enable include field geology, sample collection and return, and deployed experiments. These investigations are conducted in the hopes that they may increase our understanding of how the Moon formed and evolved, how it interacts with the Sun, and how water and other resources arrived at the Moon, and how they are transported and preserved.
These are all questions that, once answered, will help us sustain life on the Moon. The Lockheed Martin-GM team stands re
ady to autonomously chauffeur the astronauts to the dark regions of the Moon to advance our human future in space.
“I always think about alliances, and how you have to start with something real,” Ryder said. “As we go do this, it’ll likely lead to additional opportunities. It’s a great pathway going forward, and I’m sure there will be more opportunities for our two companies to come together to further human spaceflight.”

The Hennessy V.S.O.P blend is the expression of eight generations of Master Blenders know-how. To perpetuate the legacy of the original Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège, Hennessy Master Blenders have constantly sought to create a completely harmonious blend: it is the definitive expression of a perfectly balanced cognac. Based on a selection of firmly structured eaux-de-vie, aged largely in partially used barrels in order to take on subtle levels of oak tannins, this highly characterful cognac reveals balanced aromas of fresh vanilla, cinnamon and toasty notes, all coming together with a seamless perfection.
HENNESSY x REFIK ANADOL
Hennessy teams with the international acclaimed artist and director Refik Anadol to reveal the emotion behind Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège.
A media artist
Refik Anadol is a media artist, director and pioneer in the aesthetics of data and machine intelligence. His body of work locates creativity at the intersection of humans and machines. In taking the data that flows around us as the primary material and the neural network of a computerized mind as a collaborator, Anadol paints with a thinking brush, offering us radical visualizations of our digitized memories. Anadol’s site-specific AI data sculptures, live audio/visual performances, and immersive installations take many forms, while encouraging us to rethink our engagement with the physical world, its temporal and spatial dimensions, and the creative potential of machines.
“For me, data is a memory, and memory is heritage. And, I’m trying to find these collective memories for humanity which would represent heritage for humanity. So, I think there’s a common respect we have for heritage when thinking about and producing experiences. The other thing is caring about the uniqueness, and craftsmanship – that’s something I respect a lot”, said Refik Anadol.
“My initial inspiration to collaborate with Hennessy came from the people Hennessy had previously collaborated with, including Frank Gehry and Ridley Scott. Hennessy cares about the values of creation, the values of imagination, but also how to preserve uniqueness and freshness. This heritage (and that keyword is my true inspiration), and the people that Hennessy collaborates with who are also my heroes, as well as the opportunity to imagine something that resides in the same space were all things that I factored in”, said Refik Anadol.
REFIK ANADOL IN COGNAC
“When I went to the Château de Bagnolet, I was convinced I could create something fresh because the place is about memories and dreams. Then, when I saw the cellars, and experienced the smell… I don’t know exactly how to describe that feeling. In the world of technology you never feel Time. But when you go back to the history, it hits you: it’s just human inspiration.” It marked the first time in the Maison’s history that an artist was allowed to capture that time-honored ritual real-time via neuroscientific research methods, and to use the collected data in collaboration with machine intelligence to create an unprecedented work of art.
Using 3D data mapping, Refik Anadol interpreted and transcribed the Tasting Committee’s emotions into the color, shapes, reliefs and textures that appear on the 2021 Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Limited Edition. What was once an invisible sensory experience has suddenly become tangible: the power of balance appears in a harmonious and poetic surface design. Data becomes art in a visual metaphor for a blend; like the cognac itself, Sense of Heritage, the artwork, is designed to be appreciated on an individual, sensorial level.

PRESERVING HERITAGE IN THE AGE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Jetoptera was recently awarded two 2021 Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) contracts from the USAF to further characterize the noise of its patented Fluidic Propulsive System (FPS™) in an anechoic chamber wind tunnel and to prove that the FPS™ used with an Upper Surface Blown Wing (USB) configuration will produce specific lift force levels similar to those of a rotor-wing aircraft, yet without moving parts.
For the first contract, Jetoptera has partnered with the University of Notre Dame (Professor Scott Morris) to employ the anechoic wind tunnel in their Turbomachinery Labs and characterize the aero performance and acoustics signature of the FPS™ and compare it to similar thrust propulsors currently employed in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) concepts.
“We will compare the FPS™ and three other propulsion technologies that are the legacy propulsors for Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) UAVs and UAM vehicles using a similar power supply for each. Having already established our FPS™ lower noise emissions potential versus a propeller under another program, this time we will be using an anechoic chamber and a different measurement system, with the goal of confirming the advantages of the propulsion technology we have invented” said Dr. Andrei Evulet, CEO of Jetoptera, Inc.
Jetoptera has also partnered with the University of Washington (Professor Alberto Aliseda) to employ the Kirsten Wind Tunnel to demonstrate feasibility of lift and thrust augmentation by a wing-integrated Fluidic Propulsion System via the Boundary Layer Ingestion and Upper Blown Surface Jet Mechanisms. Our goal is to find the maximum vertical lift produced with this combination and demonstrate that by distributing the FPS™ along a wing we can produce a specific lift force (lbf/hp) similar to a low disk load rotor employed by rotary wing aircraft. “We will investigate and find the optimal architecture for the use of the wing for VTOL in conjunction with the FPS™ and how it could match the performance of a rotor, by using the same power, but without the large, noisy, moving parts,” said Dr. Evulet.
“We are on the technological design path to demonstrate that an aircraft using the FPS™ is quieter, faster, simpler, more compact and less expensive than a rotor or propeller driven aircraft. Combined with FPS™’ agnosticism to energy sources – it can be powered by jet fuels, Diesel, SAF, hydrogen or electric – we are confident about the superiority of our propulsion solution as noise, safety and performance continue to be major challenges in unmanned and manned aviation,” added Dr. Evulet.
The period of performance is six months for each contract.
In July 2018, Jetoptera finished propulsion tests, triggering an issuing of $1.5 million in equity. In September 2018, Jetoptera and GE Aviation announced that they were cooperating “to jointly demonstrate a 500-pound-force (lbf) class Fluidic Propulsion System leveraging a gas generator based on GE Aviation’s H-Series turboprop engine. This is the first step towards a fully customized gas generator which will lead to a Jetoptera 500 VTOL full flight demonstrator.”
A 50 kg (110 lbs) subscale propulsion system test rig completed a tethered flight in October of 2018, and the company states that the fluid propulsion system met their standards in the “production of stable, repeatable and reliable thrust”. The company reported that it was awarded a patent for their fluid propulsion system in April 2019, and announced in December that additional patents for “Fluidic Propulsion System“, “Configuration for Vertical Takeoff and Landing System for Aerial Vehicles“, and “Flying Car” had also been issued. In this announcement the company made the updated claim that their fluid propulsion System would allow their high-speed configuration of the aircraft to reach speeds between 200 and 400 mph, a revision to the earlier claim that the craft was only capable of speeds up to 200 mph.
A quarter scale model of the J2000 was reported to have flown in May 2019, and during the initial flight the demonstrator reached a top speed of 90mph. In July 2019, this demonstrator completed a successful cargo-delivery demonstration, and in August Jetoptera claimed that the flight testing campaign that utilized the model had successfully demonstrated several key characteristics of the aircraft, including:
Fully autonomous VTOL to wingborne missions; the missions were fully preprogramed to execute VTOL and high speed flight and they can be customized using simple interfaces such as a tablet.
Hovering and maneuverability in flight, per mission input or manually.
Transitions from and to hovering from speeds exceeding 100 mph.
Dynamic characteristics of aircraft in hover and wingborne modes for further analyses.
This model was fully electric, employing batteries as a source of power and electric fans as the means of propulsion. The company reports plans to use thrusters and a turbo-compressor for later models, but has taken meaningful strides in demonstrating their claim that the J200 is capable of fully electric flight.
In January 2020, Jetoptera reported a partnership with Honeywell aimed at the adoption of fluid propulsion systems in the defense market, and in March of 2021 the company was awarded contracts from the U.S. Air Force to test the noise characteristics of the aircraft and prove that their fluid propulsion system was capable of producing “specific lift force levels similar to those of a rotor-wing aircraft, yet without moving parts”.
Jetoptera’s vision is to create a world where aerial mobility is commonplace for both cargo and people. We have developed a unique propulsion system integrated with a novel airframe. This allows us to create lighter, more efficient, and less complex aircraft. Our technology enables vertical and short takeoff and landing (V/STOL), high speeds, sizable payloads and range, and maneuverability.

THE SCIENCE OF SOMADOME
Somadome uses light and color therapy to transform our body’s state at the cellular level.
The dome structure gives the illusion of infinite space, immersing you into an illuminated pod of colors that coordinate with your session goals. Using colors and light to heal is an age-old technique, premised on the idea that the colors of the spectrum of visible light have specific beneficial health properties. Contemporary research shows that light helps regulate and control the autonomic nervous system and production of melatonin and cortisol, two hormones critical to health and wellness. With the option to select a single color of light or cycle through the whole spectrum, the Somadome provides an environment conducive to the gentle and positive health effects of being immersed in light.
Somadome transforms EMF frequencies that are out of harmony with our bodies’ natural electromagnetic signals.
We are constantly inundated with unnatural electromagnetic fields and wave forms created by human-made electronics. These EMF frequencies and wave forms can disrupt the natural frequencies of healthy cells and organs and create pain, fatigue, feelings of misalignment and low energy. Somadome incorporates the use of micro-crystalline ceramic tiles, which use a proprietary design to transform these unnatural waveforms into forms more like those found in nature.
Somadome uses binaural beats in guided and unguided tracks to achieve beneficial states associated with your session goals.
Binaural beats use varying inaudible frequencies to help guide our minds into brain states achieved during meditation. Just as Tibetan monks use singing bowls, gongs, and other instruments to help access meditative states, modern technology has perfected these binaural beat frequencies, making their benefits obtainable to anyone searching for peace and mental clarity.

Introducing the New InsideTracker Mobile App — Pioneering the Next Generation of Personalized Human Performance
It’s here. It’s arrived—the new InsideTracker mobile app.
After years of spirited debates, thousands of hours of scientific research, and countless iterations of designs, we are very proud to announce the achievement of a significant milestone for InsideTracker– the launch of our new iOS mobile app.
Now, InsideTracker customers can experience a new pinnacle of potential, personalization, and performance from your ultra-personalized nutrition system.
With this first of its kind, customer-exclusive app, you can now integrate real-time physiomarker data from your fitness tracker with your existing blood and DNA biomarker data. This unprecedented combination of Blood + DNA + Fitness Tracking data addsan exponential level of precision and customization to your InsideTracker Action Plan.
Fundamentally, it’s a simple equation with profound results. The more data you put into it, the more impact you get out of it.
Finally, a real-time and complete picture of your health and wellness
When we set about to design this new app from the ground up, we knew we had an ambitious task ahead of us, but one that would successfully realize our company vision. Integrate more and more scientifically proven biometric data inputs to deliver real-time, holistic health & wellness insights.
As a super performer, conscious achiever, and longevity seeker, you are actively looking to not only add more fidelity and deeper insights to your plans but also centralize all the growing and disparate sources of quantified data about your bodies. You wanted to measure more precisely, see more clearly, and act more confidently. In the end, understand the relationship, causation, and correlation between these different data points. You spoke, we listened, and it is here!
Additionally, as we dug deeper, our team of InsideTracker behavioral scientists unearthed more insights to inspire and inform our approach.
Building new habits that stick is a tall order for anyone. You must understand conceptually and intellectually “how” to get it done and be inspired, maintain & sustain, and have a systematic routine if you want to make progress in your health journey. The seeming complexity of orchestrating all these elements to drive desired behavior change can be overwhelming all on your own. And while you may have the goal in mind (e.g., strength, endurance, healthy aging), it can seem out of reach to visualize and realize the steps needed to reach that goal.
But with any challenges or speed bumps that come our way, we see opportunity. So we set about to create an elegant, mobile-first solution that addresses these problems head-on and puts the inherent power of InsideTracker right at your fingertips.
The app was created around a simple idea – provide limitless access to your health and wellness data, helping to keep you on track and build the sound habits you need to reach your health & wellness goals.
A host of brand new features were purpose-designed to provide a clearer & comprehensive picture of your health profile, real-time & immediate feedback, and put more customization & control in your hands.
Fitness tracking integration = more precision and personalization
We know that you, our insatiably curious InsideTracker customers, are measuring more and more data from a growing set of sources such as blood, DNA, and physiological biomarkers.
While all of these tell valuable, in-depth, and nuanced stories about what’s going on inside your body, the truth is they come at different times and frequencies.
Blood reflects what’s going on right now, but it’s just not practical or realistic to test daily. DNA can reveal your body’s potential for certain wellness traits, but your genetic blueprint is stable, unchanging and testing is genuinely only a once in a lifetime occasion. Physiological data, such as resting heart rate and sleep, provide motivating reminders of your daily activity and help monitor regular progress, but don’t effectively translate that data to simple, tangible, and effective “So now what?” actions.
The InsideTracker mobile app’s inherent power is its capability to make the whole truly greater than the sum of these individual parts. The simple act of adding fitness tracking data to your blood and genetic biomarkers unlocks never-before-seen dimensions of your InsideTracker Action Plan. Blood biomarkers now come with genetic and physiological insights. Our trusted, science-backed recommendations to improve your blood biomarkers now show how they will help you physiological markers and how your genetics impact both of them.
Sync your Fitbit to InsideTracker to automatically update your latest data, and you are on your way to seeing inside yourself from an entirely new perspective. A note to “other” fitness tracker fans. Yes, we are launching with Fitbit; however, Garmin and Apple Health integrations are next in line coming in early 2021, and more devices in the queue.
Daily and continuous optimization
At the heart of the new InsideTracker iOS app is the PULSE. This dynamic dashboard home base of the app integrates your daily Action Plan with your existing habits. It helps you visualize and plot your InsideTracker recommendations with easy guidance on how and when to incorporate them throughout your day.
These daily readings also feed into your WELLNESS SCORE, a newly calculated metric exclusive to our app that provides a daily snapshot of your progress towards optimizing your body. As you log actions according to your plan and change key physiological markers, you can track and monitor these changes reflected in your Wellness Score. InsideTracker’s data science team designed this proprietary algorithm to apply relative weight to critical changes and actions. Optimizations in your blood biomarkers will have a relatively more substantial effect on your Wellness Score. In contrast, improvements in physiological markers or daily check-ins on your Action Plan will have a somewhat smaller effect. Be sure to monitor your improvements because even those little changes in your Wellness Score will fuel feelings of reward and positively motivate you towards your goals.
And finally, you’ll get hyper-targeted PROTIPS to keep you on track towards your goals. Delivered daily, these nuggets of wisdom are a single, easy to follow, laser-focused recommendation that will have the most significant impact on improving your performance. Currently, PROTIPS are based on simple physiological recommendations, but soon we will be expanding PROTIPS to include nutrition and blood biomarker-based guidance.
More customization and control
InsideTracker’s behavioral science team was hard at work once again, reimagining the levels of flexibility, customization, and control you have over your InsideTracker Action Plan.
Go ahead and start by picking your goal. With thirteen (13) different goals to choose from, you can select the one you want to focus on, and we’ll help guide you to success. Because your body is dynamic, feel free to change your goal at any time.
New to the mobile app, you can now pick an Action Plan approach that fits your style. Do you want to build healthy habits one small step at a time? Choose the “Focused” approach to steadily zone in on your single highest-impact area. Or do you want to maximize your potential with a multi-step plan and make significant progress ASAP? Then choose “Strive” to fast track your plan by hyper-focusing on the top five highest-impact recommendations.
If it feels like there are too many recommendations, then go ahead and remove some. If you feel the spark to take on a few more, go ahead and add some. We put the power in your hands to design your own personal Action Plan’s pace, style, and robustness.
All of this customization culminates in another new key metric, the IMPACT SCORE. Your Impact Score shows you the strength and effectiveness of each recommendation specifically for you, guiding you to select the best habits to follow. The higher the score, the more influential the recommendation. The Impact Score is based on the number of biomarkers impacted by this recommendation, the strength of the science behind it, and the biomarkers’ importance to your goals.
Note that once you have successfully created your Action Plan on the new InsideTracker mobile app, we encourage you to look forward, not backward, because your Action Plan will now only live in your pocket where it rightfully belongs. Additionally, the new data provided by the app’s exclusive WELLNESS SCORE and IMPACT SCORE has created a dramatically improved Action Plan experience with deeper insights and more accountability.

Demo-2 is the final major test for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station.
SpaceX is returning human spaceflight to the United States with one of the safest, most advanced systems ever built, and NASA’s Commercial Crew Program is a turning point for America’s future in space exploration that lays the groundwork for future missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
You can watch a replay of the launch above.

CREW DEMO-2 LAUNCH AND DOCKING
On Saturday, May 30 at 3:22 p.m. EDT, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launched Crew Dragon’s second demonstration (Demo-2) mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the next day Crew Dragon autonomously docked to the International Space Station. This test flight with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board the Dragon spacecraft returned human spaceflight to the United States.
SpaceX is targeting Wednesday June 3 at 9:25 p.m. EDT, 1:25 UTC on June 4, for its eighth launch of Starlink satellites. Falcon 9 will lift off from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. A backup opportunity is available on Thursday, June 4 at 9:03 p.m. EDT, 1:03 UTC on June 5. Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018, the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019, and two separate Starlink missions in May 2019 and in January 2020. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. The Starlink satellites will deploy in an elliptical orbit approximately 15 minutes after liftoff. Prior to orbit raise, SpaceX engineers will conduct data reviews to ensure all Starlink satellites are operating as intended. Once the checkouts are complete, the satellites will then use their onboard ion thrusters to move into their intended orbits and operational altitude of 550 km.

Uno de ellos será penumbral y el otro anular, este último que provoca los llamativos anillos de fuego o luz, también conocidos como rings of fire
En junio de 2020 tendremos dos eclipses lunares, el primero de ellos, conocido como Strawberry Moon Eclipse. Tendrá lugar el viernes 5 y sábado 6 de junio y será el segundo eclipse penumbral del año.
Será visible en gran parte de Asia y Europa, Australia, África y el sudeste de América del Sur.
Un eclipse penumbral se produce cuando la Luna pasa a través de la pálida periferia de la sombra de la Tierra. Es tan sutil que quienes miran al cielo con frecuencia no notan que está ocurriendo un eclipse.
El 21 de junio tendremos un eclipse anular de sol, que ocurre cuando la Luna está en su órbita más alejada de la Tierra: el apogeo lunar. Una Luna en apogeo a veces se conoce como Micromoon si está en su fase de Luna Llena. Debido a que la Luna está más lejos de la Tierra de lo habitual, no puede cubrir toda la cara del Sol.
Esto produce un anillo brillante de luz ardiente que siluetea la Luna. Los eclipses anulares tienen un encanto especial que les es propio. Durante un eclipse anular, los haces de luz se convierten en pequeños anillos de luz (o rings of fire).
Más adelante en el año, el 5 de julio y el 30 de noviembre se registrarán otros eclipses lunares penumbrales.
¿Por qué no tenemos un eclipse lunar todos los meses?
Es cierto que la Luna da vueltas alrededor de la Tierra todos los meses, pero no siempre se interpone en la sombra de la Tierra. Esto ocurre porque la trayectoria lunar alrededor de la Tierra está inclinada en comparación con la órbita de la Tierra alrededor delSsol. La luna puede estar detrás de la Tierra e incluso así recibir luz solar.
