Nasa astronaut drops mirror into space during spacewalk

“Mission Control said the mirror somehow became detached from Cassidy’s spacesuit. The lost item posed no risk to either the spacewalk or the station, NASA said.”

‘spacewalk’ - how very ‘Dan Dare’’? :roll_eyes: How can any sentient adult with an IQ of over 24 fall for this childlike crap? Still, it’s nice to know the mirror will ‘pose no risk to the station or in the wider vastness of the universe’?

No risk?
On the contrary. It can cause a space war. Star Wars, that is.

If I remember, one of these was “Lost In Space” About $50,000. Hasselblad

Offering incredibly high resolution and color accuracy, the H6D-400c MS from Hasselblad is a specialized medium format camera system that is distinguished by its unique multi-shot capabilities. Compared to traditional single-shot images, this multi-shot capture records up to six sequential images and automatically composites them into a single 400MP-equivalent frame with noticeably greater color detail and a near complete lack of moiré and aliasing. Helping to realize this impressive recording capability, as well as enabling high-resolution single-shot shooting, too, this camera system is based on the H6D-100c platform and its 100MP 53.4 x 40mm CMOS sensor. The CMOS design affords a wide sensitivity range of ISO 64-12800, along with 16-bit color depth and a dynamic range of up to 15 stops to maintain notable detail and quality when working in the most difficult of lighting conditions. Coupled with an enhanced electronic platform with faster processing capabilities, the ability to shoot both UHD 4K and Full HD video at 30 fps in the Hasselblad Raw format is also supported.
