Description

Hubblecast 77: Hubble and the Bermuda Triangle of space This Hubblecast tells the story of what happens to Hubble in the mysterious region known as the South Atlantic Anomaly. When satellites pass through this area they are bombarded with swarms of intensely high energy particles. This can produce "glitches" in astronomical data, malfunctioning of on-board electronics, and has even shut down unprepared spacecraft for weeks! credit: “ESA/Hubble” Music: music: Trough the looking glass by zero -project http://www.zero-project.gr/zero-project.html Release date: 2014 February 1, Chillout, downtempo, ambient License: CC BY 3.0 http://www.zero-project.gr/info/license.htm visual: Hubblecast 77: Hubble and the Bermuda Triangle of space http://www.spacetelescope.org/videos/hubblecast77a/ Directed by: Georgia Bladon Visual design and editing: Martin Kornmesser Written by: Georgia Bladon Narration: Sara Mendes da Costa Images:NASA, ESA Videos:NASA, ESA Web and technical support: Mathias Andre and Raquel Yumi Shida Executive producer: Lars Lindberg Christensen video © Mraknup
