I would have liked them to fling one of the Voyagers towards another solar system. Interesting stuff. They might cover this on the next episode of The Sky At Night :)

I don't think they honestly expected them to be working at this point. They probably only did the calculations to get a trajectory to cover all the planets. I doubt any of the engineers planned on a 35+ year long project.

I wouldn't mind seeing them launch some probes with newer technology/cameras etc.

Ah so you havent heard about the new probes in 2020 (or something) then?

I'll see if I can find more info. 1 sec..

Edit,
Here we go. The mission is called JUICE and it's marked for 2022

http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEM9I4QWJ1H_index_0.html

Theyre going to Jupiter and Saturn and their moons for detailed study.

It'll never happen. Too much time for the present "leadership" to axe the funding.

Is Europe's leadership as bad as ours?

What happens to the probes after they orbit the moons of Jupiter? It reads like it will orbit a few moons and that's it unless I'm missing something.

I dunno...

I'm more interested in the super duper rediculously large radio telescope network they are building in Australia NOW. A multitude of radio telescopes all networked together to form one large super telescope that will be able to see galaxies in large detail.

You mean the one built in Australia AND South Africa: http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/SKA_s ... a_999.html

It was on the news here the SA and Australia went in for the tender but Australia won. Specifically, Western Australia won, even thought it would have been cheaper labour to build in SA??

That's why I always check multiple sources if possible.

Btw , what happened to that Cisco router on that satellite ? I knew that they only implemented repeters until 2010 or so ? I'm not that good (I suck) at RF stuff.
Also you must surely know by now that the only country capable of having a space programme is China. We'll see men on Mars in 20-30 yrs or so. The Star Trek dream is dead unless we develop some other form of energy and propulsion. And that won't come any time soon.
Stay the curse !

Routing in space - http://www.cisco.com/web/strategy/gover ... uting.html

Hey boss, I just crashed the space router. I need to call the ESA and get a lift out so I can console in.

I have a Bluetooth console thingy that works up to 100 metres away (and through concrete walls within our office). You can buy an antennae to expand it up to 1000 metres. Wonder if they can expand on that further?

A colleague of where I work now ordered a few to get it slightly cheaper and I went in. We got a bluetooth USB dongle (my new laptop doesn't have bluetooth). Then we get the console receiver with rechargeable battery, plus a charger and USB charger so that you can keep it powered whilst being used if necessary.

I was at the museum of Western Australia the other month and managed to use this thing through metal walls over quite some distance. When you are just out of range it does slow down a little. I could have done with one of these years ago.
