Freebase

  1. FORTE

    The Fast On-orbit Rapid Recording of Transient Events is a lightweight satellite which was launched at about 8:30 AM on August 29, 1997 into a circular 800-kilometer low Earth orbit which is inclined 70 degrees relative to the earth's equator, using a Pegasus XL rocket. It was developed and launched by the Sandia National Laboratory in cooperation with Los Alamos National Laboratory, as a testbed for technologies applicable to U.S. nuclear detonation detection systems used to monitor compliance with arms control treaties, and later to study lightning from space. The project was sponsored by the United States Department of Energy, and cost about US$35 million. It utilizes optical sensors, RF sensors, and an "event classifier" in order to make observations, including monitoring Very High Frequency lightning emissions in the ionosphere occurring from between 50 to 600 miles above the surface of the Earth, and it will be a component of the VHF Global Lightning and Severe Storm Monitor system. Its primary mission is to record and analyze bursts of RF energy rising from the surface of the Earth. FORTE is 7-foot tall, weighs 470-pound, and is the first all-composite spacecraft, its framework being made entirely of graphite-reinforced epoxy. It consists of three decks with aluminum honeycomb cores, and composite facing to support the onboard instruments.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Le respect de soi est le meilleur et le plus beau cadeau que vous donnez à vous-même. Le respect de soi-construit la plus forte maîtrise de soi, la dignité de soi, l'auto-discipline, et la plus haute estime de soi qui vous permet de ne jamais se contenter de moins, et, surtout, de se éloigner de quelque chose ou quelqu'un que vous sous-estime et friandises vous comme un second choix. Ne oubliez jamais que vous ne avez pas besoin de personne qui ne vous traite pas avec respect et dignité. Mener votre vie de la meilleure façon, alimenté avec le respect de soi; et le monde vous respectera.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Admettre votre erreur et de prendre la responsabilité de vos actions nécessite courage et l'humilité extraordinaire. Les gens interprètent mal souvent une responsabilité comme une faiblesse. Au contraire, la responsabilité démontre votre caractère ouvert d'esprit. Disant "désolé" nécessitent le niveau plus élevé de capacité intellectuelle. Seules les personnes forte d'esprit et bien équilibrés peuvent le faire sans effort. Toujours fier tout en prenant la responsabilité de vos actions - parce que ce la seule partie de votre personnage qui vous différencier du reste aussi remarquable et extraordinaire.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    toutes les fois que nous entendons «l'amour est aveugle." mais ce n'est pas vrai. aveugle est l'engouement, tandis que l'amour voit tout et tout accepter aspect étonnant de la vie. l'amour est fort et permanent engouement vis-à-vis qui est fragile et éphémère. à mon avis, l'amour est comme de la soie, qui est délicat, doux, éclairage et doux - et pourtant si forte qu'aucune force au monde ne peut le déchirer facilement. l'amour est d'accepter l'autre pour de bonnes qualités ainsi que des défauts, et de forces autant que les faiblesses. l'amour est de travailler ensemble à travers les défis de la vie, et surmonter les obstacles avec synergie. Je voudrais résumer l'amour dans trois T: la confiance, la transparence et le travail d'équipe.
