Space exploration is the ongoing discovery and exploration of celestial structures in outer space by means of continuously evolving and growing space technology. While the study of space is carried out mainly by astronomers with telescopes, Space exploration has often been used as a proxy competition for geopolitical rivalries such as the Cold War. The early era of exploration was driven by a Space Race between the Soviet Union and the United States. With the substantial completion of the ISS following STS-133 in March 2011, constellation, a Bush Administration program for a return to the Moon by 2020 was judged inadequately funded and unrealistic by an expert review panel reporting in 2009. In the 2000s, the Peoples Republic of China initiated a successful manned spaceflight program, while the European Union, from the 1990s onwards, private interests began promoting space tourism and public space exploration of the Moon. After the war, the U. S. used German scientists, the first scientific exploration from space was the cosmic radiation experiment launched by the U. S.
on a V-2 rocket on 10 May 1946. The first images of Earth taken from space followed the year while the first animal experiment saw fruit flies lifted into space in 1947. Starting in 1947, the Soviets, with the help of German teams, launched sub-orbital V-2 rockets and their own variant and these suborbital experiments only allowed a very short time in space which limited their usefulness. The first successful launch was of the Soviet unmanned Sputnik 1 mission on 4 October 1957. The satellite weighed about 83 kg, and is believed to have orbited Earth at a height of about 250 km and it had two radio transmitters, which emitted beeps that could be heard by radios around the globe. Analysis of the signals was used to gather information about the electron density of the ionosphere. The results indicated that the satellite was not punctured by a meteoroid, Sputnik 1 was launched by an R-7 rocket. It burned up upon re-entry on 3 January 1958, the second one was Sputnik 2. Launched by the USSR on November 3,1957, it carried the dog Laika and this success led to an escalation of the American space program, which unsuccessfully attempted to launch a Vanguard satellite into orbit two months later.
On 31 January 1958, the U. S. successfully orbited Explorer 1 on a Juno rocket, the first successful human spaceflight was Vostok 1, carrying 27-year-old Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on 12 April 1961. The spacecraft completed one orbit around the globe, lasting about 1 hour and 48 minutes, gagarins flight resonated around the world, it was a demonstration of the advanced Soviet space program and it opened an entirely new era in space exploration, human spaceflight. The U. S. first launched a person into space within a month of Vostok 1 with Alan Shepards suborbital flight in Mercury-Redstone 3, orbital flight was achieved by the United States when John Glenns Mercury-Atlas 6 orbited Earth on 20 February 1962. Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, orbited Earth 48 times aboard Vostok 6 on 16 June 1963
Astronomy is a monthly American magazine about astronomy. Targeting amateur astronomers for its readers, it contains columns on sky viewing, reader-submitted astrophotographs, Astronomy is a magazine about the science and hobby of astronomy. Based near Milwaukee in Waukesha, Wisconsin, it is produced by Kalmbach Publishing, astronomy’s readers include those interested in astronomy, and those who want to know about sky events, observing techniques and amateur astronomy in general. Astronomy was founded in 1973 by Stephen A. Walther, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point, the first issue, August 1973, consisted of 48 pages with five feature articles and information about what to see in the sky that month. Issues contained astrophotos and illustrations created by astronomical artists, Walther had worked part time as a planetarium lecturer at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and developed an interest in photographing constellations at an early age. Although even in childhood he was interested to obsession in Astronomy, however he graduated in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, and as a senior class project he created a business plan for a magazine for amateur astronomers.
With the help of his brother David, he was able to bring the magazine to fruition, astroMedia Corp. the company Walther had founded to publish Astronomy, brought in Richard Berry as editor. Berry created the offshoot Odyssey, aimed at young readers, in 1985, Milwaukee hobby publisher Kalmbach bought Astronomy. In 1992, Richard Berry left the magazine and Robert Burnham took over as chief editor, Kalmbach discontinued Deep Sky and Telescope Making magazines and sold Odyssey. In 1996 Bonnie Gordon, now a professor at Central Arizona College, David J. Eicher, the creator of Deep Sky, became chief editor in 2002. The Astronomy staff produces other publications, there was, for a time in the mid-2000s, a Brazilian edition – published by Duetto Editora – called Astronomy Brasil. However, due mainly to low numbers, Duetto ceased its publication in September 2007. Astronomy publishes articles about the hobby and science of astronomy, the front half of the magazine reports on professional science, while the back half of the magazine presents items of interest to hobbyists.
Science articles cover topics as cosmology, space exploration, research conducted by professional-class observatories. Each issue of Astronomy contains a star map showing the evening sky for the current month and the positions of planets. They include science writer Bob Berman, who writes a column called “Bob Berman’s Strange Universe”, Stephen James O’Meara writes “Stephen James O’Meara’s Secret Sky, ” which covers observing tips and stories relating to deep-sky objects and comets. Glenn Chaple writes Glenn Chaple’s Observing Basics, a beginner’s column, Phil Harrington writes Phil Harrington’s Binocular Universe, about observing with binoculars. Telescope Insider interviews people who are a part of the telescope-manufacturing industry, in each issue of Astronomy Magazine, readers will find star and planet charts, telescope observing tips and techniques, and advice on taking photography of the night sky
Amateur telescope making
Amateur telescope making is the activity of building telescopes as a hobby, as opposed to being a paid professional. Amateur telescope makers are usually a sub-group in the field of amateur astronomy, ever since Galileo took a Dutch invention and adapted it to astronomical use, astronomical telescope making has been an evolving discipline. Before the advent of modern mass-produced telescopes the price of even a modest instrument was often beyond the means of an amateur astronomer. Building your own was the only method to obtain a suitable telescope for observing. There were many published works that helped spark an interest in building such as Irish telescope maker Rev. W. F. A. Ellisons 1920 book The Amateurs Telescope. There was so much public interest Ingalls began a column for Scientific American on the subject. These had a readership of enthusiast constructing their own instruments. Between 1933 and 1990, Sky and Telescope magazine ran a column called Gleanings for ATMs edited by Earle Brown.
The ready supply of surplus optical components after World War 2 and Sputnik, porter as “The Poor Mans Telescope”. The Newtonian has the advantage of being a design that allows for maximum size for the minimum expense. Typically a Newtonian telescope of 6” or 8 aperture is a starter project. Since the Newtonian reflector is the most common telescope built by amateur telescope makers, the mirror has to be carefully ground and figured to an extremely accurate shape, usually a paraboloid. Telescopes with high focal ratios may use spherical mirrors since the difference in the two shapes is insignificant at those ratios. The tools used to achieve this shape are surprisingly simple, consisting of a similarly sized glass tool, a series of finer abrasives, through a whole series of random strokes the mirror naturally tends to become spherical in shape. At that point, a variation in polishing strokes is used to create. In order to grind telescope optics into a shape, a highly versatile material must be used such as glass.
After the melting point is reached, the glass fuses together, proper annealing procedures ensure that internal stresses are relieved within the glass, which reduces risk of failure for the newly cast blank. The equipment most amateurs use to test the shape of the mirrors, at its most basic it consists of a light bulb, a piece of tinfoil with a pinhole in it, and a razorblade
Medicine Magazine was a UK consumer magazine focused on health and medical issues. It had a serious medical and scientific editorial than womens magazines.

New Scientist is a weekly English-language international science magazine, founded in 1956. Since 1996 it has run a website. Sold in retail outlets and on subscription, the magazine covers current developments, news and commentary on science and it publishes speculative articles, ranging from the technical to the philosophical. A readers letters section discusses recent articles, and discussions take place on the website. New Scientist, based in London, publishes editions in the UK, the United States, the magazine was founded in 1956 by Tom Margerison, Max Raison and Nicholas Harrison as The New Scientist, with Issue 1 on 22 November, priced one shilling. The British monthly science magazine Science Journal, published 1965–71, was merged with New Scientist to form New Scientist, the cover had a text list of articles rather than a picture. Pages were numbered sequentially for an entire volume, as is the norm for academic journals. Until the 1970s, colour was not used except for on the cover, from the beginning of 1961 The was dropped from the title.
From 1965, the front cover was illustrated, since its first issue, New Scientist has written about the applications of science, through its coverage of technology. For example, the first issue included an article Where next from Calder Hall, on the future of nuclear power in the UK, a topic that it has covered throughout its history. In 1964 there was a regular Science in British Industry section with several items, an article in the magazines 10th anniversary issues provides anecdotes on the founding of the magazine. In 1970, the Reed Group, which went on to become Reed Elsevier, Reed retained the magazine when it sold most of its consumer titles in a management buyout to what is now IPC Media. The Grimbledon Down comic strip, by the renowned cartoonist Bill Tidy, issues of New Scientist from Issue 1 to the end of 1989 have been made free to read online.

Discover is an American general audience science magazine launched in October 1980 by Time Inc. It has been owned by Kalmbach Publishing since 2010, Discover was created primarily through the efforts of Time magazine editor Leon Jaroff. He noticed that magazine sales jumped every time the cover featured a science topic, Jaroff interpreted this as a considerable public interest in science, and in 1971, he began agitating for the creation of a science-oriented magazine. This was difficult, as a former colleague noted, because Selling science to people who graduated to be managers was very difficult, jaroffs persistence finally paid off, and Discover magazine published its first edition in 1980. During this period, Discover featured fairly in-depth science reporting on hard science, most issues contained an essay by a well-known scientist—such as Stephen Jay Gould, Jared Diamond, and Stephen Hawking. Another common article was a biography, often linked with mentions of other scientists working in the field, the Skeptical Eye column sought to uncover pop-science scams, and was the medium where James Randi released the results of Project Alpha.
Jaroff said that it was the section at its launch. Jaroff told the editor-in-chief that these were not solid sciences, and was sent back to Discovers parent, Skeptical Eye and other columns disappeared, and articles covered more controversial, speculative topics. The new format was a success, and the new format remained largely unchanged for the next two decades. Gilbert Rogin, a Sports Illustrated editor, was brought in 1985 to revive Discover, in 1986, Time purchased the subscription lists of the shuttered magazines Science Digest and Science 86 from their publishers. Circulation for the magazine reached 925,000 by May 1987 with revenue for 1986 being $6.9 million, but annual net loss were $10 million per year. In January 1987, Time appointed a new Discover publisher, Bruce A. Barnet, who was appointed publisher of Fortune. The magazine changed several times. In 1987, Inc. sold Discover to Family Media, from January to July 1991, Discover magazine lost 15% of its advertising while still remaining profitable.
Family Media closed down while suspending publication of all its magazines, Family Medias last Discover issue was August 1991, with a circulation of 1.1 million copies. In September 1991, The Walt Disney Company bought the magazine for its Disney Publishings Magazine Group, the magazines main office was moved to the Magazine Group office in Burbank while leaving one third behind in New York in a small editorial and advertising office. Disney was able to retain Family Medias editor-in-chief for the magazine, Disney increased the magazines photography and its content budget to over come skipping 2 issues in Family Medias shutdown and ownership change.
