ASTER’s view of Death Valley October 28, 2005

Death Valley

In this 3-D perspective view looking north over Death Valley, California, the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER), with its multi-spectral infrared channels, displays the bands in red, green and blue respectively. Since different materials reflect and emit energy in different ways, ASTER can provide detailed information about the composition of Earth’s surface. The data have been computer enhanced to exaggerate the color variations that highlight differences in types of surface materials.

Salt deposits on the floor of Death Valley appear in shades of yellow, green, purple, and pink, indicating the presence of carbonate, sulfate, and chloride minerals. The Panamint Mountains to the west and the Black Mountains to the east are made up of sedimentary limestones, sandstones, shales and metamorphic rocks. The bright red areas are dominated by the mineral quartz, found in sandstones; green areas are limestones. In the lower center of the image is Badwater, the lowest point in North America.

X-38

This close-up view of the X-38 crew return vehicle under the wing of NASA’s B-52 mothership prior to launch of the lifting-body research vehicle was taken from the observation window of the B-52 bomber as it banked in flight. The X-38 research project, which is no longer under development, was designed to develop the technology for a prototype emergency crew return vehicle or lifeboat for the international space station.
