Cinema (Yes song)

"Cinema" is an instrumental by the progressive rock band Yes, from their 1983 album, 90125. In 1985 it won the Grammy Award for the band's only Grammy; the 1980 incarnation of Yes included Trevor Horn, Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White. When this group split up following the tour for the album Drama and White joined forces with singer and guitarist Trevor Rabin; the three were joined by former Yes member Tony Kaye, the four began writing and recording demos under the band name "Cinema". Chris Squire played some of the band Cinema's recordings with former Yes lead singer Jon Anderson, who expressed interest in participating in the project. With four out of the five having been Yes members, it was decided to change the name of the band from Cinema to Yes; the title of the instrumental track "Cinema" is therefore an acknowledgement of the four-piece band that co-wrote and performed it, before Anderson joined and the band was renamed Yes."Cinema" development from a twenty-minute-long track with the working title "Time".

At just over two minutes in length, "Cinema" is the shortest track on 90125, one of the shortest tracks Yes has recorded. Although the band had recorded short tracks before, they were well known in the 1970s for entire albums of lengthy songs, such as 1973's Tales from Topographic Oceans, which has four songs, none of, shorter than 18 minutes."Cinema" is one of two songs on 90125 that does not list Anderson as a co-writer. In the 9012Live concert video, "Cinema" was the first song played, preceding "Leave It" as it does on 90125. In years, Yes would follow "Cinema" with "Owner of a Lonely Heart" instead, as seen in the House of Yes: Live from House of Blues video concert. In 2004, current and former Yes members Squire, Rabin and Downes united to perform "Cinema" and "Owner of a Lonely Heart" at the Prince's Trust concert honouring Trevor Horn

Dom Capuano

Dom Capuano, is an Italian music composer and music producer for pop music, electronic music and orchestra. His genre goes from EDM to film soundtracks, his breakthrough as a producer and songwriter arrived in the mid to late 1990s after crafting a string of hits for pop artists like Eiffel 65, Da Blitz, Gabry Ponte and Karmah. He has collaborated with several international artists including: Jean Michel Jarre, Kool & The Gang, Laura Pausini, 883, Aqua. Zucchero, Andreas Johnson, Toni Braxton, S Club 7, Busta Rhymes, he studied music, in particular double bass at the G. Verdi Conservatory of Music in Italy, he is a piano player and conductor. His entire musical career can be split into two different paths: the recording industry and symphonic music. In the early 1990s he succeeded as a composer and record music producer and he is now considered a "successful composer on the mainstream" due to his continuous "maniacal" research and experimentation of new sounds. Over the years he has produced many hits.

In 1993 he composed "Let me be" launching the career of Da Blitz.. In 1994 he composed "Take My Way" As a composer and arranger for DaBlitz he has entered Italian charts with "Let Me Be" and "Stay with Me". Da Blitz will be in the standings again with the songs "Movin' On" and "Take Me Back" and "I Believe" The album Europop by Eiffel 65 was released in US by Universal reaching the 4th position of U. S. charts by selling a total of 3,800,000 copies. Europop was released worldwide with different record labels including Warner Music and Sony Music, receiving good reviews from the American press Eiffel 65 received a Grammy Awards Nomination in 2001 and their track "Move Your Body" was played at the World Music Awards of Montecarlo in 2000, in front of a VIP audience hall, that included Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson. In 2002 international press recognised the market distribution of Eiffel 65 as 15 million units sold worldwide including albums and singles. In 2000 and 2001 Dom remixed more than 40 songs for various international artists including "Tout est Bleu" by Jean Michel Jarre which co-produced the song step by step together with him.

Dom says that it was a huge honor to collaborate with Mr. Jarre and it was one of the best satisfactions of his entire life since he had studied years before electronic music having non other than Jean Michel Jarre and Mike Oldfield as references. Over the years Dom has produced remixes for the Italian band 883 including, "Come Mai", "La Donna, Il Sogno e Il Grande Incubo", "Gli Anni" credited by Bliss Team and "Viaggio al centro del mondo" and the hit "La Regina del Celebrità" credited by Eiffel 65. Between 2002 and 2005 Dom collaborated with Gabry Ponte producing and writing songs like "The Man in the Moon" and "Depends on You" from the albums "Doctor Jekyll & Mr. DJ". From the album "Gabry Ponte" was extracted the single "Figli di Pitagora" performed by Italian Rock'n’ Roll Legend "Little Tony". Both albums were released by Universal Italy and both reached the top of national rankings.. In 2005 at Bliss Corporation, Dom produced, with Gabry Ponte, several tracks for the band "Karmah" which experienced quite a big success in Europe peaking at #5 with a cover of SOS' "Just Be Good to Me" which contained a sample of the song "Every Breath You Take" by The Police.

In the summer of 2006 Dom met the band Dari and began an artistic collaboration as producer and co-author of some of their songs. In February 2008 the band achieved success in Italy with the song "Wale". Soon after he received the following awards: the Italian Revelation video of the year for the track wALE in 2008. In 2010 Capuano has produced the Rock band "Fonokit". In the same year he completed his music studies as conductor, which gave him the input to move to the US to pursue his passion for movies and soundtracks. In 2006 a new chapter begins with the study of music composition for cinema and in 2008 Dom produces his first real and complete work for a 45 minutes film, "Calibro 70", directed by Alessandro Rota.. The film won some international film festivals. In 2009 he composed the soundtrack "Hey Gio" for the Disney Channel TV series "Chiamatemi Gio".. After the soundtracks of "Ninja Turtles" and some other short films in the 2011 has moved in Los Angeles to pursuit its music career as composer for film.

In 2011 Dom composed and produced the soundtrack for the Australian film "The Sleeping Warrior". Which was directed by the Indian filmmaker Chayan Sarkar. In 2012 he composed and produced the soundtrack for the American film "Solid State" starring Vivica A. Fox, he composed and produced the second episode of the trilogy directed by Stefano Milla "Richard The Lionheart: Rebellion": a story on the vicissitudes of the rise to the throne of the future King of England Richard I "the Lionheart", son of Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine.. With a first release in 2015 the film got distributed by STUDIOCANAL for the UE and Sony Pictures for the U. S. In the same year he composed the soundtrack of the TV movie "Beautiful Destroyer". Dom is still composing for films and in 2016 he scored "The Silent Lynx" and "Branded" directed by Phil Gorn sta

Great Observatories program

NASA's series of Great Observatories satellites are four large, powerful space-based astronomical telescopes launched between 1990 and 2003. They were built with different technology to examine specific wavelength/energy regions of the electromagnetic spectrum: gamma rays, X-rays and ultraviolet light, infrared light. Two remain operational as of 2020; the Hubble Space Telescope observes visible light and near-ultraviolet. It was launched in 1990 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery during STS-31. In 1997 the STS-82 servicing mission added capability in the near-infrared range, in 2009 the STS-125 mission fixed the telescope and extended its projected service life; the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory observed gamma rays, though it extended into hard x-rays as well. It was launched in 1991 aboard Atlantis during STS-37 and was de-orbited in 2000 after a gyroscope failed; the Chandra X-ray Observatory observes soft x-rays. It was launched in 1999 aboard Columbia during STS-93 into an elliptical high-Earth orbit, was named the Advanced X-ray Astronomical Facility.

The Spitzer Space Telescope observed the infrared spectrum. It was launched in 2003 aboard a Delta II rocket into an Earth-trailing solar orbit. Depletion of its liquid helium coolant in 2009 reduced its functionality, leaving it with only two short-wavelength imaging modules, it was removed from service and placed into safe-mode on January 30, 2020. The Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory continue to operate as of early 2020. Hubble was intended to be retrieved and returned to Earth by the Space Shuttle, but the retrieval plan was abandoned. On October 31, 2006, NASA Administrator Michael D. Griffin gave the go-ahead for a final refurbishment mission; the 11-day STS-125 mission by Space Shuttle Atlantis, launched on 11 May 2009, installed fresh batteries, replaced all gyroscopes, replaced a command computer, fixed several instruments, installed the Wide Field Camera 3 and the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph. One of the three gyroscopes on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory failed in December 1999.

Although the observatory was functional with two gyroscopes, NASA judged that failure of a second gyroscope would result in inability to control the satellite during its eventual return to earth due to orbital decay. NASA chose instead to preemptively de-orbit Compton on June 4, 2000. Parts that survived reentry splashed into the Pacific Ocean. Spitzer was the only one of the Great Observatories not launched by the Space Shuttle, it was intended to be so launched, but after the Challenger disaster, the Centaur LH2/LOX upper stage that would have been required to push it into a heliocentric orbit was banned from Shuttle use. Titan and Atlas rockets were canceled for cost reasons. After redesign and lightening, it was launched by a Delta II rocket instead.. The history of the Hubble Space Telescope can be traced back to 1946, when the astronomer Lyman Spitzer wrote the paper Astronomical advantages of an extraterrestrial observatory. Spitzer devoted much of his career to pushing for a space telescope.

The 1966–1972 Orbiting Astronomical Observatory missions demonstrated the important role space-based observations could play in astronomy. In 1968, NASA developed firm plans for a space-based reflecting telescope with a 3-meter mirror, known provisionally as the Large Orbiting Telescope or Large Space Telescope, with a launch slated for 1979. Congress approved funding of US$36,000,000 for 1978, the design of the LST began in earnest, aiming for a launch date of 1983. During the early 1980s, the telescope was named after Edwin Hubble. Gamma rays had been examined above the atmosphere by several early space missions. During its High Energy Astronomy Observatory Program in 1977, NASA announced plans to build a "great observatory" for gamma-ray astronomy; the Gamma Ray Observatory, renamed Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory, was designed to take advantage of the major advances in detector technology during the 1980s. Following 14 years of effort, the CGRO was launched on 5 April 1991. In 1976 the Chandra X-ray Observatory was proposed to NASA by Riccardo Giacconi and Harvey Tananbaum.

Preliminary work began the following year at Marshall Space Flight Center and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. In the meantime, in 1978, NASA launched the first imaging X-ray telescope, into orbit. Work continued on the Chandra project through the 1990s. In 1992, to reduce costs, the spacecraft was redesigned. Four of the twelve planned mirrors were eliminated. Chandra's planned orbit was changed to an elliptical one, reaching one third of the way to the Moon's at its farthest point; this eliminated the possibility of improvement or repair by the Space Shuttle but put the observatory above the Earth's radiation belts for most of its orbit. By the early 1970s, astronomers began to consider the possibility of placing an infrared telescope above the obscuring effects of Earth's atmosphere. Most of the early concepts, envisioned repeated flights aboard the NASA Space Shuttle; this approach was developed in an era when the Shuttle program was presumed to be capable of supporting weekly flights of up to 30 days duration.

In 1979, a National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences report, A Strategy for Space Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 1980s, identified a Shuttle Infrared Telescope Facility as "one of two major astrophysics facilities for Spacelab," a Shuttle-borne platform. The launch of the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, an Explorer-class sat
