Hi all,

I thought we should have a thread with all the major-publication publicized images and APOD's made by UMSF members. We really bring Space to the public and we should be proud of it!

I would like for each entry to contain:

1) a <100kb photo of the image itself + its name.
2) a link to the real-size image.
3) the UMSF user name(s) of the creators.
4) a link to the UMSF thread(s) where the image is presented/discussed.

I want to list the images chronologically, so if you can help me out with thread contributions in the above-described format, I'll insert those contributions to this first posting.

Thanks a lot, and here goes:

Any chance you edit your post to follow your own advice - those first two in-line images are over that. The first is over 1MB! I'm going to make them plain links for now to help dial up users, feel free to make it a thumbnail link if you wish.

I think this is an excellent idea. I hope you will include RPascal's Huygens mosaic which was much reproduced and which helped Jason Perry locate the landing site.

One of my favourites from APOD was called something like Clouds over Meridiani, an image produced in four stages by four different UMSFers.

Another category for inclusion could be images that win competitions run by NASA, ESA etc. or on sites like TPS (Ciclops, spacEurope?)

Via this topic I would like to thank those UMSF members again who helped me illustrate my yearly MER-articles for the monthly Spaceflight magazine of the British Interplanetary Society... we even made some cover(s) wink.gif

Sorry James, I'm a technical newbie when it comes to this forum software. I thought only the smaller-size file was loaded, when the forum software makes the automatic reduced-size photo. My mistake!

I have a couple of questions:

- How do I make the thumbnail link you talk about?

- Is it possible to have such a thumbnail image link to an attachment to another posting? I would like the attached image in post # 4 of this thread http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.php?showtopic=1674 to appear as the image in the entry for that front page.

Thanks a 1,000,000.

Hi there ngunn,

I need some more pointers to threads or so, to find those images you're talking about by RPascal and the one called clouds over Meridiani.

Regarding the idea about including more sites, I think it would be best to stick to publications and APOD, because otherwise I fear the first posting will become far too long. We are that good! smile.gif I agree it is rather arbitrary though, because all those other sites are equally worthwhile of course.

I guess it will also make sense to just include images by "space amateurs". We have quite a few mission members (among them of course MarsEngineer), but they get images published not as UMSF members, but as mission members, JPL employees, etc.

I hope some more UMSF'ers will pop by this thread, and help finding the pics!

Hi! Here's the APOD one:

Here's the Huygens one:

And in a moment I'll find a UMSF post with that link.

Here it is, copied from a 'search members posts' for RPascal:

One of the most exciting questions for me is, if the radar swath data will result in a definite decision how the Huygens mosaic and Cassini ISS/VIMS correlate.
Some month ago I tried to find this correlation, with the result that I felt I had to introduce a relatively large calibration mismatch to find a good visual agreement of Huygens and ISS. But now it has come to my knowledge that Huygens radar, as well as radar tracking of Huygens from earth, seems to be in good agreement with the timer height calibration, so it looks as I have to give up this idea.
http://www.beugungsbild.de/huygens/ISS_huy...correlate3.html

Does anybody know what radar resolution is expected at the Huygens landing site?
Will ISS also obtain some high resolution images?

IIRC Jason cited this image in the official literature relating to the Huygens site location. Before this, and just after Huygens landed, an earlier version of the same Pascal mosaic featured in much of the press coverage.

ngunn, I added the Clouds and Sands image, thanks again!

Even though the Huygens is probably the one with the most scientific merit of them all, it doesn't quite fit in his thread. But wauw, it really is something! Didn't know an UMSf member made it.

Now, if somebody could explain me how I can add an image of an attachment from another posting... smile.gif

When Opportunity was poised to enter Victoria Crater (just before the storm hit), I did this SFX image, seen in this thread.
Attached Image


It was picked up by AWST - story here. They also used the image as a double page spread in their July 2007 issue.

The full image is still available on my old SFX webpage.

Two possibilities.
First one: Include an image (thumbnail or not) in the post using the "Insert Image" button. It will add a "code" like:
CODE
[img]http://www.thesite.com/link.to.the.thumbnail.image.jpg[/img]

Then, select the whole code and add a link using the "Insert Link" button. The "codes" will look like this:
CODE
[url="http://www.thesite.com/link.to.the.big.image.jpg"][img]http://www.thesite.com/link.to.the.thumbnail.image.jpg[/img][/url]


Second one: Include an image in the post using the attachment options. Important: it should be smaller then 200x200 pixels. Images that small are *not* reduced by the forum's sw and don't look like an attachment.
Then, select the whole attachment and add a link using the "Insert Link" button. The "codes" will look like this:
CODE
[url="http://www.thesite.com/link.to.the.big.image.jpg"][attachment=14666:1R266590...1314R0M1.jpg][/url]


Now, speaking of published images, once I was really surprised to find one of my "dirty" mosaics at APOD.

I can see the point. As far as I know Rene Pascal created the Huygens mosaic first and joined UMSF subsequently to discuss the issue of locating the site in Cassini images. But it's significant I think that he did come here, where Jason is also a highly valued active member.

If my version of history needs correcting I hope one of the principal players will step in!

Sounds about right.

BTW, do my APOD images count? If so, and you can find which are mine, you get a cookie laugh.gif

Thanks for those explanations Tesheiner. What I REALLY need to be able to do, is to link to an image that has been used as an attachment in another person's posting. Is that in any way possible?
