08/06/2014 : Rosetta meets Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
Until this great first, all encouters with asteroids or comets by man made probes were of short duration. This time Rosetta will not only stay with the comet more than a year, but also follow tail formation while closing in with the Sun and there is more! Rosetta will drop Philæ, wich will attempt to touch, or land on the comet surface.
08/05/2014 : Inmarsat & MH370
Study of data and meta-data of Inmarsat-3 F1 satellite, and thanks to ingeniosity of researchers, it was possible to pinpoint the last hours of flight of Malaysian MH370, then to determine probable location of the aircraft wreck. New search will start in August 2014 thanks to this. The flight recorders may help solving mystery of this dramatic event. One Hypothesis seem to fit most of the facts : cabin lost pressurization, all crew loosing consciousness, an unqualifier person trying all buttons in the cockpit, then flight continuing on autopilot until end of fuel.
07/29/2014 : You are now browsing the "back to normal" espacelollini.com website.
Since July 12 6PM we were operating a backup site because of a thunder-strike that cut some phone lines around our business location.
The only data that may have been lost is your shopping cart if you have modified it since July 12. Anyway you can now see new issues that we kept adding during the phone outage (because we were fully operational except for phone lines).
07/07/2014 : Atom and Physicist
Study of the fabric that makes our Universe.
Here is a collection that brings you both the infinite big and the infinite small.
By the stamps, you will see horror of the radioactive death and the benefit of a power source that is as of today the only one we have; it is powerful and compact enough to satisfy our needs and its pollution can be under control.
You will dicover research that force mathematics to develop, huge instruments, men and machines builders of a better future. Those who do not rejact a science newly born. Those who accept the risks of trial and error. Those who want to understand everything. This is the collection of those who beleive in the best part in us. Those adventurer of matter who stay or will be celebrities...
Nuclear peace, Rays used in medecine,
Means of propulsion for Earth or space that solve the problems of autonomy speed and safety, the Fusion, the Big-bang, the Particles, are all topics in the album Atom.
A misunderstood science, an interesting collection.
