Thomas Pesquet reflects on living on the International Space Station after his six-month Proxima mission. Beyond science and technology the voyage often reveals more than the destination. A message for all humans.

As Marcel Proust wrote in his book The Prisoner: “The only true voyage of discovery, … would be not to visit strange lands but to possess other eyes, to behold the universe through the eyes of another, of a hundred others, to behold the hundred universes that each of them beholds, that each of them is.”

The footage was shot with the Space Station’s highest resolution camera at resolutions between 4K and 6K and available here in Ultra High Definition (3840×2160 pixels). Download the full high-resolution file from ESA’s video archive: ///INSERT LINK ///

During Proxima, Thomas performed around 50 scientific experiments for ESA and France’s space agency CNES as well as take part in many research activities for the other Station partners.

The mission is part of ESA’s vision to use Earth-orbiting spacecraft as a place to live and work for the benefit of European society while using the experience to prepare for future voyages of exploration further into the Solar System.

Piper M350

 

The Piper M350 is the only current production pressurized piston-engine aircraft available today. It leads the piston pack with an impressive 213 ktas cruising speed, as well as the ability to cruise up to 25,000 ft in pressurized comfort. With standard dual turbochargers, owners can also expect a consistent fuel burn at any altitude keeping operating costs down.

Safety

Pulse Oximeter

The M350 features a panel-mounted pulse oximeter. The pilot’s heart rate and blood oxygen saturation can easily be measured and displayed on the MFD, along with continuous monitoring of carbon monoxide levels in the cabin

hypoxia recognition system with automatic descent mode

The Hypoxia Recognition System detects pilot incapacitation as a result of hypoxia by monitoring pilot interaction with the PFD, MFD, and Autopilot Controller at altitudes above cabin 14,900 feet with the autopilot engaged. If no interaction is detected within a specified time period, this system will engage Automatic Descent Mode and bring the aircraft to a lower altitude in an effort to allow recovery from hypoxia. The M350 can safely fly itself, without assistance, to lower altitudes in the unlikely case the pilot becomes unresponsive.

SYNTHETIC VISION

Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology takes situational awareness to a new level, regardless of what you can or cannot see through the windshield. Acquiring information from multiple certified databases, synthetic vision graphically depicts obstacles, terrain, water, and airports, providing you with all of the information you require for safer travel.

COUPLED GO-AROUND

With stall protections developed
 as part of the USP system, coupled go-arounds are possible without disengaging the autopilot. With this feature, the autopilot remains engaged and will fly the missed approach. If power is not added, the USP system will maintain a speed just above stall warning, adjusting airplane pitch attitude as required.

AUTOMATIC LEVEL MODE

The M350 features the pinnacle of pilot and passenger peace of mind: Level Mode, a function that, when triggered, will return the aircraft to a wings level attitude with zero vertical speed. Upon activation, Level Mode will automatically engage the flight director and autopilot functions to return the aircraft to straight and level flight. By simply pressing the blue
button, Level Mode is activated and cancels all armed and active modes, without impeding other autopilot modes available. This ingenious additional safety measure provides further reassurance for pilot and passengers in the circumstantial case it would be required.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROTECTION

Preventing the onset of stalls, spins, steep spirals, and loss-of-
control conditions, this passive feature discourages aircraft operation
outside the desired flight envelope. ESP functions independently of the autopilot system, and only takes effect when the pilot is hand-flying the aircraft with the autopilot disengaged. It works as a soft barrier to keep the Piper M350 inside the preferred performance envelope by automatically engaging servos to slightly correct control surface positions when the aircraft exceeds one or more flight parameters, essentially encouraging it back inside optimal flight specifications.

GTS 33ES + GTX 825 = ADS-B IN AND OUT

The standard GTX 33ES provides ADS-B out functionality. ADS-B In can be achieved by adding the optional GTS-825 Traffic Advisory System. The GTS-825 (ADS-B In) traffic systems provide a comprehensive traffic picture. It can track up to 75 targets within a
 40 nm interrogation range. Additionally, spoken ATC-like aural alerts help manage your safe flight.

UNDERSPEED PROTECTION

Underspeed Protection (USP) is
 an intuitive flight director function that reacts to underspeed conditions in a way that allows the autopilot 
to remain engaged, but prevents the airplane from stalling.

RYOHEI (born in Fukuoka, Japan in 1983 ) creates paintings with the consistent theme of YAKUDO, which means, translated literally, “full of life and energy.” Like the climactic moment in a film, his paintings are iconic, explosive, energetic, and memorable. RYOHEI’s unique fisheye lens perspective adds to his works’ depth, breadth, and beautiful trajectory lines, creating this dramatic effect of YAKUDO.


Art is the only way to run away without leaving home – run with us.
