bentornato Paolo Nespoli

PAOLO NESPOLI È RIENTRATO A TERRA

14 Dicembre 2017

L’astronauta dell’ESA Paolo Nespoli è rientrato a Terra questa mattina dopo 139 giorni nello spazio. Il viaggio verso casa dalla Stazione Spaziale Internazionale ha richiesto di passare dai 28.800 km/h di crociera all’arresto finale in appena tre ore.

Paolo ed i membri dell’equipaggio Randy Bresnik, della NASA, e Sergei Ryazansky, di Roscosmos, hanno toccato terra, nella steppa kazaka, alle 09:37 ora italiana (08:37 GMT).

La navetta Soyuz MS-05 ha sopportato le sollecitazioni della discesa e dell’atterraggio come previsto: il suo scudo termico ha raggiunto i 1.600 gradi durante il rientro in atmosfera, mentre all’interno della navicella gli astronauti hanno sperimentato fino quattro volte il proprio peso corporeo.

A 10 km di altitudine i paracadute si sono aperti, prima che i retrorazzi fornissero la frenata finale prima di toccare terra.

“Il cosiddetto atterraggio morbido è come un frontale tra un camion ed una utilitaria – e tu sei nell’utilitaria” ricorda Paolo dal suo atterraggio del 2011.

Durante la missione di cinque mesi, Paolo ha orbitato la Terra 2.224 volte, volato attraverso 35.000 albe e tramonti, e viaggiato per 94 milioni di chilometri.

Questa è stata la terza missione e la terza visita alla Stazione Spaziale per Paolo, portando il tempo trascorso nello spazio a 313 giorni, al secondo posto per un astronauta ESA dopo Thomas Reiter.

Vita è la terza missione di lunga durata dell’Agenzia Spaziale Italiana – ASI – frutto di un accordo con la NASA in cambio della fornitura di moduli per la Stazione.

Ritorno alla vita sulla Terra

...

Paolo ha portato a termine oltre 60 esperimenti durante la sua missione denominata Vita, acronimo di Vitalità, Innovazione, Tecnologia ed Abilità.



Il suo stesso corpo è stato oggetto di ricerca: i suoi occhi, i suoi mal di testa, gli schemi di sonno e le abitudini alimentari sono stati monitorati per comprendere meglio come l’uomo si adatti alla vita nello spazio.

Le annotazioni della temperatura corporea, gli esercizi muscolari e abbondanti campioni di sangue e di saliva completeranno il quadro e prepareranno l’uomo per future missioni lontano dalla Terra.

Dall’orbita a circa 400 km sopra il pianeta, Nespoli ha inviato i comandi ad un robot umanoide in Germania per riparare tre pannelli solari danneggiati su un terreno marziano simulato, mostrando come astronauti e robot lavoreranno insieme nelle future missioni planetarie.

La vita nello spazio potrebbe diventare più facile grazie a tablet e smartphone – Paolo ha testato un sistema vivavoce che visualizza le istruzioni durante delle attività complesse.

Due capsule Soyuz agganciate alla ISS

C’è stato molto traffico durante la missione Vita: Paolo ha dato il benvenuto a cinque veicoli in visita e ne ha visti tre lasciare di nuovo la Stazione. Ha preso parte all’attracco di due veicoli utilizzando il braccio robotico della Stazione, ed ha dato supporto a quattro uscite extra veicolari.

Paolo sarà ora impegnato con riunioni e test. Gli astronauti subiscono una forma di rapido invecchiamento nello spazio e devono riadattarsi a vivere in condizioni di gravità. Gli scienziati studieranno come il suo corpo reagisce, come caso di studio.

Il prossimo astronauta ESA a viaggiare verso la Stazione sarà Alexander Gerst, il cui lancio è previsto la prossima estate.

Nespoli torna sulla Terra

PAOLO NESPOLI RETURNS TO EARTH

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli will return to Earth on 14 December after his third mission to the International Space Station. Paolo and crewmates Randy Bresnik of NASA and Sergei Ryazansky of Roscosmos will return in their Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft. Watch the events from farewell to touchdown live by tuning in at these times:

  • 01:30 GMT (02:30 CET): farewells and hatch closure. Hatch closure scheduled for 02:00 GMT (03:00 CET)
  • 04:30 GMT (05:30 CET): undocking of Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft. Undocking scheduled for 05:16 GMT (06:16 CET)
  • 07:15 GMT (08:15 CET): reentry and landing coverage. First thruster firing to brake and reenter atmosphere scheduled for 07:44 GMT (08:44 CET). Touchdown in Kazakhstan expected at 08:38 GMT (09:38 CET)

The ride home from the International Space Station will see the trio brake from 28 800 km/h to a standstill at touchdown in barely three hours.

Paolo completed more than 60 experiments during his Vita mission, which stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability.

His body was itself an arena for research: his eyes, headaches, sleeping patterns and eating habits were monitored to learn more about how humans adapt to life in space.

Temperature recordings, muscle exercises and plenty of blood and saliva samples will add to the picture and prepare humans for missions further from Earth.

ARISS contact planned for school in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain

An International Space Station school contact has been planned for Joe Acaba KE5DAR with Summa-Aldapeta, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain

The event is scheduled on Saturday 16 December 2017 at approximately 11:09 UTC.

The contact will be a direct between OR4ISS and EG2SMA.
The contact should be audible in parts of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.800 MHz downlink.

School Information:

Summa Aldapeta is a Catholic co-educational school owned  by three religious orders, The Society of Mary – (Marianist brothers and priests), The Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist sisters) and the Order of the Company of Mary our Lady  and  operated  by agreement with the educational authorities. Through a unique collaboration, it has served the city for more than a hundred years.

The school is located in three close premises in  the city centre of San Sebastian- Donostia, north of Spain. These three buildings give us the possibility of adapting to the needs of today’s students and allow us to have a much closer relationship with students and their families.
Nowadays there are around 2,000 students from the age of 1 up to the age of 18 at Summa Aldapeta, with a dedicated staff, truly dedicated to the spirit of educating the whole student, engaged in innovation and new methodologies.

We offer our students, families and society an integral and quality education. Our goal in education is to develop every student as a person, educating them to interact and communicate with others, stimulating their abilities, educating them in healthy lifestyles and equality. We share these goals with our families and society.

The city has been selected as European Capital of Culture for 2016 (shared with Wroclaw, Poland).

Communication in its different ways plays a key role in Cultural exchange among nations. Amateur radio operators have been, since their very beginnings 100 years ago, a perfect example of the idea of culture “solidarity”. They have played an active role in many humanitarian interventions in natural disasters, medicine searches or missing people. These are values we want to share in Summa Aldapeta.


Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1. What did you have to study to be an astronaut?
2. Por qué motivo decidiste ir al espacio?
3. If you had to go to the space forever, would you do it?

About ARISS:

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA. The US Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the  National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) provide special support.

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters’ interest in science, technology, and learning.

The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio.  For more information, see www.ariss.orgwww.ariss-eu.org and https://www.amsat-on.be/hamtv-summary/.
