ゴダードが1960年にはじめて宇宙から地球へ衛星で送られたテレビの画像を公開

NASA(アメリカ航空宇宙局/National Aeronautics and Space Administration)ゴダード宇宙飛行センター(Goddard Space Flight Center)が1960年に人工衛星タイロス1(TIROS 1 satellite)によって、はじめて宇宙から地球へ送信された、はじめてのテレビの画像をNASA(アメリカ航空宇宙局/National Aeronautics and Space Administration)ゴダード宇宙飛行センター(Goddard Space Flight Center)が公式インスタグラム(Instagram)アカウントで公開。

#OldHeadshotDay This NASA image was taken on April 1, 1960, by the TIROS 1 satellite and was the first television picture of Earth from space. The Television InfraRed Observational Satellite (TIROS) 1 was the first weather satellite. Launched into a polar orbit 40 years ago (April 1, 1960) equipped with two TV cameras, TIROS 1 was operational for only 78 days but demonstrated the feasibility of monitoring planet Earth’s cloud cover and weather patterns from space. TIROS satellites eventually began continuous coverage in 1962 and enabled accurate worldwide weather forecasts and alerts. This image is the first TIROS TV image, taken from an altitude of about 700 kilometers. Crude by contemporary standards, it represents the beginning of what is still one of the most important continuing applications of space technology.

ちなみに宇宙や宇宙望遠鏡などにご興味のある方でご存知の無い方は、ハッブル宇宙望遠鏡(Hubble Space Telescope)にも動きがあったようですので、ハッブル宇宙望遠鏡(Hubble Space Telescope)公式インスタグラム(Instagram)アカウントより埋め込んでおきます。

To peer ever deeper into the universe with unprecedented clarity, to detect the light of stars and galaxies no one has seen before, Hubble has required more and more cutting-edge technologies throughout its career. Scientists and engineers have created a wealth of new technology for Hubble, both while the telescope was being built and since its launch, to help the mission continuously push the bounds of exploration and our cosmic understanding. Along the way, as astronauts traveled to space five times to upgrade the telescope with these improvements, many of Hubble’s technological advancements found new, innovative uses in an array of earthly applications — from medicine to manufacturing and from wildlife conservation to winning Olympic gold — improving lives here on the ground.
