COSMOLOGY2Rocket Launch between MountainsIn the above picture, we can see that a rocket is being launched and it can be seen between the mountains. This rocket was launched into space Xichang Satellite Launch Center, which is located in China, in the province of Sichuan. Two of the navigation satellites were launched with the help of this rocket named Long March 3B carrier. The Long March 3B Carrier was introduced in the year of 1996 by China. This type of rocket is mostly used to carry communication satellites and launch them into geosynchronous orbit. The satellites were plannedto place 2000 KMS from the earth, and this beyond the International Space Station’s orbit. Mission Changi3 of China was launched in the year 2013, and the Rover robot was landed in China. The image was taken from approx. 10 km away from the launching site, and this image is a nightscape photography with the shutter speed set to around 1 and focal length set to approx. f/4.0 that is the reason that image background has a lot of colours. The above picture was taken by Yudong Jiang. Nasa is using these types so pictures in their album “Discover the cosmos!” wherelots of pictures are there related to cosmos.

COSMOLOGY3Mount Everest Star TrailsIn the above picture, we see the trails of stars and different space objects above the MountEverest, which is one of the world’s highest mountain in the Himalayas mountain ranges in the country of Nepal. The picture we see above is known as night skyscape picture and this type of picture is taken at focal length nearby f/3.5 which is used to capture trails and also known as a live view. This picture was taken on the 30th September with 240 sequential exposure were captured in the camera in 1.5 hours, and this is the time needed to see such a colourful trail of thestars. The picture was taken from the Everest Base Camp and this is north face of the mountain. We can see the background at the night because of the moonlight. Reflecting the everyday rotation of the planet on its orbit, their movement is accompanied by delicate bends, focused on the South Pole, which is a point underneath the rough horizon. The shade of the trails really shows the temperature of the stars. The shades of blue are with hot stars, and the hues from yellow to red are cooler than the stars contrasted with the sun.
