    44:34

    Apollo and Space Shuttle Astronaut Ken Mattingly talks about his Astronaut Career and the early US Space Program during a lecture in Pontefract, UK organised by

    Thomas Kenneth Ken Mattingly II, (born March 17, 1936) is a retired American astronaut, Naval Aviator and Rear Admiral in the United States Navy who flew on the Apollo 16, STS-4 and STS-51-C missions. He had been scheduled to fly on Apollo 13, but was held back due to concerns about a potential illness (which he did not contract). He later flew as Command Module Pilot for Apollo 16, making him one of only 24 people to have flown to the Moon.[

    Astronaut Jim Lovell Q&A Hosted by Professor Brian Cox - Space Lectures

    36:48

    Apollo 13 Astronaut James Lovell talks about his Space Experiences during this Question and Answer session hosted by Physicist Brian Cox at the Space Lectures event in Pontefract.

    Subscribe:

    Captain Lovell was selected as an Astronaut by NASA in September 1962. He has since served as backup pilot for the Gemini 4 flight and backup Commander for the Gemini 9 flight, as well as backup Commander to Neil Armstrong for the Apollo 11 lunar landing mission.

    On December 4, 1965, he and Frank Borman were launched into space on the history-making Gemini 7 mission. The flight lasted 330 hours and 35 minutes and included the first rendezvous of two manned maneuverable spacecraft.

    The Gemini 12 mission, commanded by Lovell with Pilot Edwin Aldrin, began on November 11, 1966. This 4-day, 59-revolution flight brought the Gemini program to a successful close. Lovell served as Command Module Pilot and Navigator on the epic six-day journey of Apollo 8 - man's maiden voyage to the moon - December 21-27, 1968. Apollo 8 was the first manned spacecraft to be lifted into near-earth orbit by a 7-1/2 million pound thrust Saturn V launch vehicle; and Lovell and fellow crewmen, Frank Borman and William A. Anders, became the first humans to leave the Earth's gravitational influence.

    He completed his fourth mission as Spacecraft Commander of the Apollo 13 flight, April 11-17, 1970, and became the first man to journey twice to the moon. Apollo 13 was programmed for ten days. However, the original flight plan was modified en route to the moon due to a failure of the Service Module cryogenic oxygen system. Lovell and fellow crewmen, John L. Swigert and Fred W. Haise, working closely with Houston ground controllers, converted their lunar module Aquarius into an effective lifeboat. Their emergency activation and operation of lunar module systems conserved both electrical power and water in sufficient supply to assure their safety and survival while in space and for the return to earth.

    Captain Lovell held the record for time in space with a total of 715 hours and 5 minutes until surpassed by the Skylab flights.

    On March 1, 1973, Captain Lovell retired from the Navy and from the Space Program to join Bay-Houston Towing Company in Houston, Texas. Bay-Houston Towing company is a diversified company involved in harbor and coastwise towing, mining and marketing of peat products for the lawn and garden industry, and ranching. He was promoted to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer on March 1, 1975.

    2010 Exploring Space Lecture: Where the Hot Stuff Is: Volcanoes of the Earth and Solar System

    1:9:37

    This lecture was presented as part of the 2010 Exploring Space Lecture series From Fire To Ice: Forces That Shape the Planets.
    The planets and moons of the Solar System are incredibly diverse worlds with histories both ancient and dramatic. Etched into their surfaces is a fascinating story -- of fire and ice, of order and upheaval, of great cataclysms and slow change. Volcanism, impact, wind, and water are all common forces that shape these worlds, sometimes in ways familiar to us on Earth, sometimes in ways that amaze us.

    Interstellar Lecture by Kelvin Long

    1:23:09

    Full Lecture:
    In 2007 Kelvin Long set up to systematically address various aspects of interstellar travel. This included the faster than light warp drives of science fiction, the grand scale world ships required for interstellar colonisation strategies and the initiation of a research study, Project Icarus. The intention along this journey has been to catalyse interstellar studies for the purpose of working towards the creation of a self-fulfilling and optimistic prophesy in space. The near-term goals of this work were to (i) regenerate the interstellar community by the injection of new energy, ideas, and initiatives and (ii) renew design capability for starship skills through educational programs. In this lecture Kelvin will set out the overall strategy, achievements to date and next steps. In particular, an interstellar design competition will be announced as well as the formation of the world's first dedicated interstellar research organization -- The Institute for Interstellar Studies. The creation of a new space company, Stellar Engines Ltd, will also be announced along with its primary goal to connect people with knowledge. This lecture will describe what needs to be done now so that human missions to the stars are feasible by the end of the current century. Kelvin F. Long is an aerospace engineer, physicist, author and Editor of the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society

    What are the odds there is life in outer space - Richard Dawkins asks Neil Degrasse tyson

    43:58

    Richard Dawkins asks Neil deGrasse about what are his thoughts on the probability of life existing elsewhere in the universe. Neil is very positive about having life as the basic ingredients for having life are in abundance in the universe, as we are mostly made up of carbon.

    Are we Alone? - Finding Life Beyond Earth [Full Documentary] -

    Brief Background -

    Ever since humans acknowledged the enormity of the universe, we have intuited that life must exist somewhere, either in our galaxy or some galaxy far, far away. If the­ universe contains billions of galaxies, and if each galaxy contains billions of stars, and if a fraction of those stars have Earth-like planets, then hundreds -- maybe even thousands -- of alien civilizations must exist across the cosmos. Right?

    For a while, science contented itself with the logic alone. Then, in 1995, astronomers located the first planets outside our solar system. Since then, they've detected nearly 300 of these extra-solar planets. Although most are large, hot planets similar to Jupiter (which is why they're easier to find), smaller, Earth-like planets are beginning to reveal themselves. In June 2008, European astronomers found three planets, all a little larger than Earth, orbiting a star 42 light-years away.

    In a series finale, Kevin investigates how the next generation of astronauts will be propelled across the vast chasm of space to Mars and beyond, with explosive demonstrations, expert guests, and a live spacewalk from the ISS.

    So, how will life be artificially sustained as we travel the millions of kilometres to the Red Planet and on into the cosmos? How will our food last for 3 years or more? And what is waiting what for us when we finally land? With earth shattering experiments, top space scientists and a spacewalk live from the ISS, Dr Kevin Fong reveals how we'll survive that voyage to space's next frontier’ and beyond...

    Exploring Mercury by Spacecraft: The MESSENGER Mission

    1:14:35

    The third lecture in the 2011 Exploring Space Lecture Series featured Sean C. Solomon, the Principal Investigator for the MESSENGER mission and the Director of the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism at the Carnegie Institution of Washington.

    Until recently, Mercury was the least explored of the terrestrial planets, visited only by Mariner 10 in the 1970s. MESSENGER flybys in 2008 and 2009 revealed terrain seen by spacecraft for the very first time. In March 2011, as MESSENGER went into orbit, it opened a new era of comprehensive observation and study of the innermost planet, and continues to contribute to our understanding of the nature of Mercury and why it is different from its planetary neighbors. See Mercury in a new light as Sean Solomon guides us through the latest images and results.
