안녕하세요, 디큐입니다. 오늘은 NASA에서 어떤 우주의 모습을 비춰줄까요?
먼저 사진부터 감상하시죠!
이 사진의 제목은 Space Station, Solar Prominences, Sun 입니다. NASA에서 공식적으로 제공한 설명을 보시죠.
That's no sunspot. It's the International Space Station (ISS) caught passing in front of the Sun. Sunspots, individually, have a dark central umbra, a lighter surrounding penumbra, and no Dragon capsules attached. By contrast, the ISS is a complex and multi-spired mechanism, one of the largest and most complicated spacecraft ever created by humanity. Also, sunspots circle the Sun, whereas the ISS orbits the Earth. Transiting the Sun is not very unusual for the ISS, which orbits the Earth about every 90 minutes, but getting one's location, timing and equipment just right for a great image is rare. The featured picture combined three images all taken from the same location and at nearly the same time. One image -- overexposed -- captured the faint prominences seen across the top of the Sun, a second image -- underexposed -- captured the complex texture of the Sun's chromosphere, while the third image -- the hardest to get -- captured the space station as it shot across the Sun in a fraction of a second. Close inspection of the space station's silhouette even reveals a docked Dragon Crew capsule.
오늘도 광활한 우주 앞에 인간이 얼마나 작은 존재인지 깨닫게 되네요.
저는 내일도 더 좋은 사진과 함께 돌아오겠습니다, 행복한 지구여행 되세요!
