can someone tell me what the brighter parts in the thrust flame is?

if you pause the webm you can sort of see it forming out of a circle

what is it?
because fuck is it cool or what

I don't really have much science related. Neither did OP, by the looks of it.

>>6636149
You mean when they focus the shuttle thrusters?

Its a pressure/temperature differential that causes the ionized exhaust particles to luminesce at a higher frequency.

Basically when you light a candle, the tip gets yellow because energetic soot particles give off life. Thats more or less what is happening here, just they are focusing those particles and in doing so, raise their temperature and output color considerably.

Here's a little video I took of Jupiter, which I thought was neat because you can clearly see the vibrations in the atmosphere.
>>
>>6636159

can you explain what the smoke at the start is
its coming out of these pipes on each thruster then as the thrust flame goes off there are these bright tiny beams at the edges of the thrusters

what is that stuff

That smoke is venting of the liquid fuel tanks prior to ignition (basically done so they dont explode accidentally, it increases stability in the tank), and as such its probably water vapor from the air and not the actual gas that you can see, its not smoke at any rate.

The tiny bright beams are the vent gas igniting. They are on the edge of the laminar flow coming out of the thruster and so they get oxygen from the air, so they are cooler and in the visible range. The core of the thruster plume is too hot for you to see, its also possible that that is the part that has not yet ignited yet as it is coming out with force (and they dont want the ignition front to travel back up into the tanks IE challenger incident, althought that happened thru the side, but same fucking sorry ending for everybody).

>>6636237
can you explain exactly what is happening with this, including the single opposite-handed turn on top?
>>
>>6636645
Levitation melting. The induction coil both levitates the metal and heats it with eddie currents.

>including the single opposite-handed turn on top
Maybe that's to make it stable, to keep it from being repelled right out of the top of the coil? iunno

First time messing around in ds9. RBG image I made with pictures I made of Orion the same night as >>6636169.

>The induction coil both levitates the metal and heats it with eddie currents.

Yeah it's pretty apparent that there's some massive AC current (and a coolant too?) running through the coil, but how the levitation works is not entirely obvious to me.

It the current's frequency tuned to the inductive susceptibility of the sample (which would vary with temperature I'd guess), or does the coil's shape create a special field gradient that creates a positive equilibrium configuration?

Nice.
What kind of telescope do you have?

Why does it move up?
Is it cuz the hot gas goes up? But why doesn't the current just use the air below?

fucking gorgeous.

It's fun to think how mind-boggling complex this is, especially when considering all of the physics, chemical reactions, and biology which makes it happen as such.
>>
>>6635884
So anyone have an explanation as to why the lower two main shuttle engines seem to move closer together post ignition?
>>
>>6642603
Possibly because at the start you're just warming/starting-up the system, but you don't want to lift off yet. Therefore you put them slightly to the side. When you do want to lift off you align them. Just throwing ideas.
>>
>>6642399

Heat rises, its pretty hot, what do you mean by hot gas? The air around the arc is heated and ionized by the electric arc. So it rises. Often circuit breakers like these will have an air blast extinguishers or something similar to stop this arc.
