          Various conceptual space animations created in response to a NASA science animation fellowship posting. Generated over roughly two weeks in my spare time. All content created by me unless otherwise noted. To meet application deadline, various third party plug-ins were implemented in After Effects in lieu of Maya particle systems and ray trace rendering for more flexible and speedy look development, manageable render times, and native compositing. Breakdown is as follows: Shot 1: White Dwarf Goes Supernova. Created natively within After Effects, no third party plug-ins. A simple CC Sphere with a fractal noise comp for the star texture and fractal noise for the cloud of radiation and nebular material. Shot 2: Dead Planet and Asteroid Field Created in After Effects using Element 3D and Optical Flares. Planet, asteroids and textures are not my work, they are included in the starter pack. Scene layout, lighting and compositing are my work. Shot 3: Orion MPCV Approaching Earth Orion MPCV modeled and UV mapped in Maya and textured in Photoshop. Layout, animation, rendering, and compositing handled in After Effects using Element 3D, Optical Flares and Magic Bullet Looks. Shot 4: Orion Descent, Crew Module Release Layout, animation, and rigging in After Effects using Element 3D. Engine thrust created using Trapcode Particular. Earth texture borrowed from public domain via Tom Patterson at shadedrelief.com Shot 5: Orion Crew Module Re-entry Model imported into After Effects via Element 3D. Flames and atmospheric particles created with Trapcode Particular. Shot 6: Milky Way Galaxy Created in After Effects using Trapcode Form and Optical Flares. Base model created in Maya.   Shot 7: Our Solar System Solar system rig created using Element 3d and numerous group nulls in After Effects. planetary paths created with Trapcode Particular from light emitters parented to planet control nulls. Planet textures borrowed from public domain via Michal Franc/ Chyne Domy at textures.forest.cz Shot 8: Orion Turntable/ Breakdown A turntable displaying my Orion MPCV model in wireframe, ambient, color and specular along with reference imagery, UV maps and texture maps. Shot 9: Rotating Black Hole A super-massive, superfast rotating black hole feeding off a neighboring star and emitting radiation. Created in After Effects using Element 3D for the black hole and star. Trapcode Form for the spinning mass and Particular for the mass being pulled from the star and the radiation burst from the center. Optical Flares used for lighting. Shot 10: Coronal Mass Ejection The Sun taking a shot at Earth, luckily the Earth's magnetic field is there to shield it. Created in After Effects. Element 3D used for the Sun, Earth and Moon, Trapcode particular for the solar flare, Trapcode form for the magnetic field, and Optical Flares for the lighting.

          • Stunning Highlights of the Sun - SDO Year 3

            04:08

            from NW7US Added 456 0 1

            The sun's greatest hits as captured by the Solar Dynamic Observatory from February 2012 to February 2013. Live data and other resources can be found at http://SunSpotWatch.com On Feb. 11, 2010, NASA launched an unprecedented solar observatory into space. The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) flew up on an Atlas V rocket, carrying instruments that scientists hoped would revolutionize observations of the sun. If all went according to plan, SDO would provide incredibly high-resolution data of the entire solar disk almost as quickly as once a second. When the science team released its first images in April of 2010, SDO's data exceeded everyone's hopes and expectations, providing stunningly detailed views of the sun. In the three years since then, SDO's images have continued to show breathtaking pictures and movies of eruptive events on the sun. Such imagery is more than just pretty, they are the very data that scientists study. By highlighting different wavelengths of light, scientists can track how material on the sun moves. Such movement, in turn, holds clues as to what causes these giant explosions, which, when Earth-directed, can disrupt technology in space. SDO is the first mission in a NASA's Living With a Star program, the goal of which is to develop the scientific understanding necessary to address those aspects of the sun-Earth system that directly affect our lives and society. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. built, operates, and manages the SDO spacecraft for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C.

            • Solar Highlights: M3.2 Magnitude Long-duration X-ray Flare (2012-Jan-19)

              01:58

              from NW7US Added 18 0 0

              A movie showing the M3.2 (some have it as an M2.6 magnitude) X-ray flare from Active Sunspot Region 1402. The flare peaked at 1608 UTC on 19 January 2012. The flare was associated with a Type IV radio sweep and a full-halo coronal mass ejection (CME) (estimated plane-of-sky speed 1100 km/s) The movie includes a number of different wavelengths, and then ends with the LASCO C2 capture of the CME which was released by the flare. X-ray flares are huge explosive releases of energy, including X-ray and light energy. This light and X-ray energy reaches Earth at the speed of light--eight minutes later. When it reaches Earth, it causes the ionosphere to become highly energized, so much so that the D-region (the lowest region) absorbs shortwave, and medium wave, frequencies, blocking them from going any further (and being refracted or propagated long distances around the world). As can be seen in the last segment of the movie, LASCO C2 captured the eruption of a coronal mass ejection. It appears that this CME was Earth-directed. It takes days for this to reach the Earth. Current forecasts have it to arrive on January 21, 2012 at approximately 2230 UTC (give or take 7 hours; it has over 90 million miles to journey).

              • Solar Highlights Cycle 24: M9-class Long-Duration Solar X-ray Flare (2012-Jan-23 0359 UTC)

                02:38

                from NW7US Added 15 0 0

                On 23 January 2012, a magnitude M8.7 (M9-class) X-ray flare erupted in NOAA Active Sunspot Region (AR) 1402. The long-duration flare peaked at 0359 UTC. This flare triggered a proton event, resulting in an S3 (Strong) Radiation (Proton) Storm and a Polar Cap Absorption (PCA) event over the polar regions. This PCA event caused a complete radio blackout over high-latitude and polar regions. This results in any trans-polar radio paths to become as dead as a rock. This solar proton radiation storm is the strongest since September, 2005, which was during the last solar sunspot cycle, Solar Cycle 23. An S3-level radiation storm causes airlines to divert air traffic away from the polar regions. This level of a storm could also cause satellite issues, with GPS and communications being affected. Additionally, those living and working in polar regions must take precautions not to be exposed to this radiation. At the end of the video, you will see the Coronal Mass Ejection that was released by this flare. This is a fast-moving CME and it is expected to arrive at Earth on January 24, 2012, triggering a G1 to G3 level geomagnetic storm. X-ray flares are huge explosive releases of energy, including X-ray and light energy. This light and X-ray energy reaches Earth at the speed of light--eight minutes later. When it reaches Earth, it causes the ionosphere to become highly energized, so much so that the D-region (the lowest region) absorbs shortwave, and medium wave, frequencies, blocking them from going any further (and being refracted or propagated long distances around the world).

                  Various views of the prominence eruption and coronal mass ejection that turned out to be mostly Earth-directed, on July 26, 2013. The events start at approximately 1811 UTC on 26 July, 2013. The coronal mass ejection (CME) resulted in increased geomagnetic activity several days after the event. http://SunSpotWatch.com Please subscribe -- thank you! http://NW7US.us
