National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s science New Zealand Aurora Australis, SOFIA traversing the Antarctic Circle, and peering into never before seen Milky Way galaxy, National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) airborne observatory, is all in a night’s work. SOFIA or is the largest airborne observatory in the world. During an 8-10 hour mission flight time, the one-of-a-kind converted 747SP Jetliner rises over the Southern Ocean to 45,000ft (nearly 14km), putting the 106-inch diameter 17-ton telescope above 95% of the atmosphere’s water vapour for ultra-clear views of celestial bodies (and any auroras that conveniently happen to be outside the windows of the plane).

Aurora Australis from outside SOFIA’s cabin window of New Zealand’s (and our surrounding region) famously clear night skies, this NASA craft spends eight weeks per year flying regular night-time missions, operating from the U.S. New Zealand scientists and key science policy makers are invited to join for a unique observation opportunity. SOFIA conduct deep-space and Solar System observations – including our neighboring galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud, the centre of our own Milky Way galaxy, Saturn’s moon Titan, the Tarantula Nebula and the material ejected from (and swept up by) Supernova 1987A.

Project Mercury was the first human spaceflight program of the United States, running from 1958 through 1963. An early highlight of the Space Race, its goal was to put a man into Earth orbitand return him safely, ideally before the Soviet Union. Taken over from the US Air Force by the newly created civilian space agency NASA, it conducted twenty uncrewed developmental flights (some using animals), and six successful flights by astronauts. The program, which took its name from Roman mythology, cost $2.2 billion adjusted for inflation. The astronauts were collectively known as the "Mercury Seven", and each spacecraft was given a name ending with a "7" by its pilot. The Space Race began with the 1957 launch of the Soviet satellite Sputnik 1. This came as a shock to the American public, and led to the creation of NASA to expedite existing US space exploration efforts, and place most of them under civilian control. After the successful launch of the Explorer 1 satellite in 1958, crewed spaceflight became the next goal. The Soviet Union put the first human, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, into a single orbit aboard Vostok 1 on April 12, 1961. Shortly after this, on May 5, the US launched its first astronaut, Alan Shepard, on a suborbital flight. Soviet Gherman Titov followed with a day-long orbital flight in August 1961. The US reached its orbital goal on February 20, 1962, when John Glenn made three orbits around the Earth. When Mercury ended in May 1963, both nations had sent six people into space, but the Soviets led the US in total time spent in space. The Mercury space capsule was produced by McDonnell Aircraft, and carried supplies of water, food and oxygen for about one day in a pressurized cabin. Mercury flights were launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, on launch vehicles modified from the Redstoneand Atlas D missiles.
