* Do you see any you like?
Gary, what do you imply? Something like, "light" isn't detectible unless it interacts with an atmosphere?
Are you suggesting that the sun and stars do not emit in the 400 to 700nm range?
Gary said: This one from NASA/Goddard Space Flight Cent. Didn't see one like that from the ISS though.
So, the only emitted "energy" is in the form of ions? And what we see and detect is from atmospheric gases interaction with those ions.?
What do you suggest can be detected from stars in space?
What did Hubble detect?
.At a mere 120 mm, the EIT instrument aboard SOHO has a very small aperture. To equal its resolution for a star 4 ly away would require a mirror sized up by a factor of about 250,000- the ratio of the distance to the Alpha Centaurus system and the distance from SOHO to the Sun. So you'd want a telescope with an aperture of around 30 km. To give the same linear resolution Hubble is capable of (although Hubble is never pointed at the Sun) would require a mirror diameter of 600 km
Why are some of your images not showing up? You should post the url above or below each image you post, so we can click that, when the images don't show up.
Maybe the smiley was facetious, not sure there." The only portholes on unused CBM ports that are currently NOT covered with a CBCS flap are the Node 2 nadir and zenith ports - so these are the only CBM hatch portholes that the crew can "see" out of (and there isn't really much to see out of the Node 2 zenith porthole - except the blackness of space).
