"Did you get to see it?"


SEATTLE -- A total eclipse of the sun turned day into night over portions of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean Tuesday and Wednesday, depending on what side of the International Date Line you’re on.

Beginning at 5:23 p.m. PST, the moon passed across the sun, causing the daytime sky to darken. The moment when the sun was entirely obscured by the moon begin at 5:38 p.m. and lasted just six minutes until 5:44 p.m.

An Alaska Airlines flight was delayed for the total solar eclipse.

Alaska Airlines Flight 870 from Anchorage to Honolulu Tuesday reportedly planned to take off nearly a half-hour later than scheduled so passengers get a chance to see the eclipse from 36,000 feet.

“The flight plan will not require any modification, only the departure time will need to be moved forward by about 23 minutes, to offer a view of totality for 1 minute and 59 seconds on the right side of the aircraft with the black Sun at 10 degrees elevation,” writes astronomer Xavier Jubier.

Ahh, there's the kicker. Only those passengers in seats D, E, and F got the full benefit. But all the passengers will get specially filtered sunglasses, courtesy of Dan McClaun in seat 8F.

“You can’t be doing something that’s this exciting and not give everybody onboard the chance to at least participate,” said McGlaun on the Alaska Airlines blog.




Science When the Sun Don’t Shine

About once a year, somewhere on Earth, the sun is blocked by the moon. This phenomenon – called a total solar eclipse – is one of the most beautiful natural events.


Blocking the light of the sun during a total solar eclipse reveals the sun’s relatively faint, feathery atmosphere, called the corona. The corona is one of the most interesting parts of the sun. We usually study it using an instrument called a coronagraph, which uses a solid disk to make an artificial eclipse by blocking the sun’s face.




We have sent a team of scientists to Indonesia, where they’re preparing for an experiment during the March 8, 2016, eclipse, visible from Southeast Asia.

Looking Back at the #YearInSpace

Expedition 46 Commander Scott Kelly of NASA

 Like all journeys off planet Earth, it started with a flash, and a roar.

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on March 27, 2015. With a successful landing 340 days later on March 1, 2016, the pair completed one of the most ambitious missions in the history of the International Space Station and opened a new chapter in human exploration.

The Science

During their record-setting mission, nearly 400 investigations were conducted that advance NASA’s mission to reach new heights, reveal the unknown, and benefit all of humanity. Kelly and Kornienko participated in dozens of studies to provide new insights into how the human body adjusts to weightlessness, isolation, radiation and the stress of long-duration spaceflight, which will include the Journey to Mars. Kelly’s twin brother, former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, participated in parallel twin studies on Earth to help scientists compare the effects on the body and mind in space.

The space station’s orbital path over 90 percent of the Earth’s population provides a unique vantage point for studying and taking images of our planet. The one-year crew also saw the arrival of a new instrument to study the signature of dark matter to understand our solar system and beyond. Technology demonstrations conducted during the mission, such as a test of network capabilities for operating swarms of spacecraft, continue to drive innovation.

The strong U.S.-Russian collaboration during the one-year mission is the latest accomplishment in 15 years of continuous global teamwork that shows how nations with widely divergent languages, cultures and engineering philosophies can advance shared goals in science and space exploration. Strengthening international partnerships will be key in taking humans deeper into the solar system.

While scientists will begin analyzing data from Kelly and Kornienko as soon as they return to Earth, it could take from six months to six years before results are published from the research. The scientific process takes time, and processing the data from all the investigations tied to the one-year mission will be no easy task. Additionally, some blood, urine and saliva samples from Kelly and Kornienko remain stored in the space station freezers until they can be returned on the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft. Early on in the analytical process, scientists may see indications of what we can expect, but final results will develop and mature long after Kelly and Kornienko land.

Kelly also spent some of his spare time to showcase life in a microgravity environment in vivid 4K.

Like many crew members, Kelly was prolific in sharing his time in space across several social media platforms, including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Some of the highlights include stunning Earth imagery, glimpses at station science experiments as they progressed, and even conversations with President Obama.

The Operations

Kelly saw the arrival of six resupply spacecraft during his mission. He was involved in the robotic capture of SpaceX’s Dragon during the company’s sixth commercial resupply mission, and Orbital ATK’s Cygnus during the company’s fourth commercial resupply mission. The fifth Japanese HTV cargo craft and three Russian Progress resupply ships also brought several tons of supplies to the station.

Including crewmate Gennady Padalka, with whom Kelly and Kornienko launched on March 27, 2015, 13 astronauts and cosmonauts representing seven different nations lived on station during the one-year mission.

During his time on the orbiting complex, Kelly ventured outside the confines of the space station for three spacewalks. The first included a variety of station upgrade and maintenance tasks, including routing cables to prepare for new docking ports for U.S. commercial crew spacecraft. The second spacewalk successfully reconfigured a space station ammonia cooling system and restored the station to full solar power-generating capability. The third restored functionality to the station’s Mobile Transporter system.

The Return

The mission will continue even with Kelly back on Earth. NASA’s Human Research Program will collect post-flight medical data at pre-determined points three-months and six-months after Kelly’s return for the one-year mission research. For the twins study research, NASA will continue to collect data as far out as a year after his return.

Kelly returned to Ellington Field in Houston a little over 24 hours after landing, making his first steps back on U.S. soil in over a year. Kelly disembarked the NASA plane to a jubilant greeting from family, friends and well-wishers. Second Lady of the United States Dr. Jill Biden was on hand to welcome Kelly home along with Dr. John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.

NASA’s science community behind the one-year mission discussed the success of this historic mission, which was able to take advantage of 21st Century technology and techniques to gather critical data on the physical and mental changes and challenges astronauts may face when they embark on longer-duration missions.

Scott Kelly’s first opportunity to speak with the media and public took place on Friday, March 4 where he shared his perspective on the mission, what it means for NASA and what he’s looking forward to for the future.

The completion of the one-year mission and its studies will help guide the next steps in planning for long-duration deep space missions that will be necessary as humans move farther into the solar system. Kelly and Kornienko’s mission will inform future decisions and planning for other long-duration missions, whether they are aboard the space station, a deep space habitat in lunar orbit, or a mission to Mars.

NASA Invites Public to Send Artwork to an Asteroid

Send your artwork to an asteroid on our @OSIRISREx spacecraft! Use . Details: 

View image on Twitter

NASA is calling all space enthusiasts to send their artistic endeavors on a journey aboard NASA’s Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) spacecraft. This will be the first U.S. mission to collect a sample of an asteroid and return it to Earth for study.

OSIRIS-REx is scheduled to launch in September and travel to the asteroid Bennu. The #WeTheExplorers campaign invites the public to take part in this mission by expressing, through art, how the mission’s spirit of exploration is reflected in their own lives. Submitted works of art will be saved on a chip on the spacecraft. The spacecraft already carries a chip with more than 442,000 names submitted through the 2014 “Messages to Bennu” campaign.

“The development of the spacecraft and instruments has been a hugely creative process, where ultimately the canvas is the machined metal and composites preparing for launch in September,” said Jason Dworkin, OSIRIS-REx project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “It is fitting that this endeavor can inspire the public to express their creativity to be carried by OSIRIS-REx into space.”

A submission may take the form of a sketch, photograph, graphic, poem, song, short video or other creative or artistic expression that reflects what it means to be an explorer. Submissions will be accepted via Twitter and Instagram until March 20. For details on how to include your submission on the mission to Bennu, go to:

“Space exploration is an inherently creative activity,” said Dante Lauretta, principal investigator for OSIRIS-REx at the University of Arizona, Tucson. “We are inviting the world to join us on this great adventure by placing their art work on the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, where it will stay in space for millennia.”

The spacecraft will voyage to the near-Earth asteroid Bennu to collect a sample of at least 60 grams (2.1 ounces) and return it to Earth for study. Scientists expect Bennu may hold clues to the origin of the solar system and the source of the water and organic molecules that may have made their way to Earth.

Goddard provides overall mission management, systems engineering and safety and mission assurance for OSIRIS-REx. The University of Arizona, Tucson leads the science team and observation planning and processing. Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Denver is building the spacecraft. OSIRIS-REx is the third mission in NASA's New Frontiers Program.  NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, manages New Frontiers for the agency's Science Mission Directorate in Washington.

 The sporting field of football may seem worlds apart from the geeky realm of fandom, but two Seahawks are bridging that divide. Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner will charge into Seattle's Emerald City Comicon in April.

Why? Video games.

Specifically, Sherman and Wagner are offering fans the opportunity to compete alongside them as they go head-to-head playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

Related: The good and bad news about Seattle, Star Wars and romance

"Call of Duty has been their favorite game for a long time now and they routinely play online to sharpen their skills," said Mitch Eisenstein, spokesperson for Wagner and Sherman. "Bobby and Richard look forward to squaring off against one another and proving who the best Call of Duty player is on the Seahawks."

The con will hold qualifying Call of Duty matches on Thursday, April 7 from 2-4 p.m.

Six winning fans will then take the ECCC stage to play the first-person shooter video game on Sherman's or Wagner's team — playing against each other. That final bout will be at 4:30 p.m. that same day.

But gamers can't just show up and play. If you think you have the chops to play at the Seahawks level, live on stage, then sign-ups start on March 8 at noon.

Just like the other Comicon royalty of actors, comic book artists and cosplay stars, Wagner and Sherman will also take photos with fans while at the convention. An ECCC ticket for Thursday is required to get into the competition or to get a photo.

It's not the first time Seahawks have crossed over into geeky territory. Wagner, along with Earl Thomas, attended another convention with a nerdy niche — PAX Prime, also in Seattle. There, he took on teammates playing Madden NFL, one of his favorite video games. His other favorite — Call of Duty.

Sherman also isn't a stranger to video games. He has been public about his fervor for Pokemon.

 🏅 Tyler Lockett Named To All-Under-25 Team 🏅
Tyler Lockett Seahawks Highlights NFL 2015/16

 Lockett Among League's Best Up-And-Comers

Wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who earned first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors as a returner during his rookie season with the Seahawks, has been named to's All-Under-25 team, a squad compiled by NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison.

Lockett, age 23, racked up 852 yards (25.8-yard average) on kick returns and 379 yards (9.5-yard average) on punt returns this past year for Seattle, including a 105-yard kick return for a touchdown and a 57-yard punt return for a score. He came on strong as a receiver as well, making 51 grabs for 664 yards and six touchdowns to join Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers as the only two rookies in NFL history to record five touchdown catches, a kick-return touchdown, and punt-return touchdown in a season.

Here's what Harrison had to say about Lockett, who the Seahawks moved up to select in the third round of last year's draft out of Kansas State:

If a guy makes first-team All-Pro as a rookie, then he has to be on the All-Under 25 squad heading into his sophomore campaign, right? Lockett averaged 25.8 yards per kick return and 9.5 yards per punt return while catching 51 passes. His ability to do everything earns him his place on this prestigious group of up-and-comers.
