What reference source largest volcanoes in the world?

User Avatar
I think you mean a reference source for the space view of volcanoes, THE source is the ASTER (acronym for Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) Volcano Archive (AVA) hosted by NASA's JPL. There you find a link to the alphabetic listing of volcanoes, containing practically every volcano in the world, even officially unnamed ones, and another link to Google Maps where you can browse the globe (each volcano clearly marked). For each volcano you will find the entry of the Smithsonian volcano catalog and ASTER Very Near Infrared (VNIR) daytime satellite images (updated regularly containing old ones and very recent ones; a total of 40,000 photos). Starting page is in the related links below.

It's a tie. The first shuttle to fly into space was Columbia during mission STS-1. The commander was veteran astronaut John Young and he was assisted by the rookie pilot Robert Crippen.

How do the parts of a rocket fall off as rockets go?

User Avatar
In the first few minutes of launch, big hunks of frost fall off. Later, when the rocket is near the top of the atmosphere, the large first stage of the rocket motor detaches by its explosive mounting bolts blowing themselves to bits. Later, the intermediate stage detaches in a similar manner.

How can I become an astronaut?

User Avatar
The good news is, NASA is hiring! They want to get back to the moon by 2024, and they’ll need new astronauts to do it. The bad news is there are a limited number of jobs, and the qualifications are pretty intense. In addition to a bachelor’s degree, you also must have a master’s degree or two years of PhD work in specific STEM areas. You also qualify if you’re a medical doctor or if you’ve begun or completed a test pilot program. From there, you also need to fit into one of the areas of specialization (two years of biological and medical science, physical science, or engineering and operations work experience, or fit their pilot qualifications). And of course, you’ll have to be okay with the “extensive travel” required.
Asked in Computer Terminology, Space Travel and Exploration, NASA

What are the main characteristics of rocket propellants?

User Avatar
The three main elements are: FUEL, for solid or liquid engines. This is the part that actually burns. OXIDIZER, for both, as there is not enough oxygen in the fuel cell to cause combustion. Combustion causes expanding gasses and controlled release from the combustion chamber causes thrust. STABILIZER, mostly for solids, and used to maintain a consistent/even burn of the fuel.

the age for the Earth and the rest of the solar system is about 4.55 billion years (plus or minus about 1%).
Asked in Space Shuttle, Challenger and Columbia Disasters, NASA

What aspects of NASA practice revealed in the aftermath of the Columbia disaster suggest that the changes sought in the aftermath of the Challenger disaster were not sustained?

User Avatar
The commission's recommended that NASA needed to restructure its management so that change could take place. NASA's management needed to tighten its control to establish higher safety regulations for shuttle safety. Both the Challenger and Columbia had safety issues that were either overlooked or brushed under the rug. NASA also had major communication problems before, during, and after both disasters. The lack of communication posed a significant safety issue for everyone in the space program.
