Robotic Refueling Missing (RRM) Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has been a strong partner for many shuttle missions and this last voyage is no different.  During STS-135, Atlantis will deliver an external experiment to the International Space Station designed to demonstrate and test tools, techniques needed to robotically refuel existing satellites.  This joint effort with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) will be the first on-orbit attempt to test robotic refueling techniques for spacecrafts not built with servicing in mind.  This work is expected to reduce and lay the founcation for future robotic servicing missions.   10803   Shuttle Era Concludes: Goddard has Always Been There

On March 28, 2011, NASA's Swift detected intense X-ray flares thought to be caused by a black hole devouring a star. In one model, illustrated here, a sun-like star on an eccentric orbit plunges too close to its galaxy's central black hole. About half of the star's mass feeds an accretion disk around the black hole, which in turn powers a particle jet that beams radiation toward Earth.

This movie shows the flare and eruption from the previous clips, zoomed in even
more on the region of the explosion. The top row shows three AIA
channels next to a map of the Sun's surface magnetic field (observed
by SDO's Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager). Underneath these images
are two traces of the Sun's brightness as observed by the EVE
instrument, corresponding to the two left-most AIA images.

As the flare goes off, all channels brighten, so much so that
star-shaped diffraction patterns show up caused by AIA's optical
properties; these patterns cross at the locations of maximum
brightness. Then the emission from the flare site itself fades
away. An hour later, a faint high glow is seen in the 94A AIA channel
(green), revealing hot gases well above the flare site. Then the 335A
channel (blue) shows a similar set of bright structures, and finally
the 171A channel (yellow) shows these structures (most clearly as
strands shaped by the Sun's magnetic field). This afterglow, the 'EUV
late phase' of the eruptive flare, reveals that the coronal gas in the
high magnetic arches is cooling, successively showing up in AIA
filters designed to image the glow from gases at temperatures within
limited ranges.  Credit: NASA/SDO/EVE/AIA/HMI/R. Hock/LASP   10817   SDO EVE Late Phase Flares
