Extra-Terrestrial Particles Discovered in Antarctica Reveal Ancient Meteoritic Impact 430,000 Years Ago

Research led by the University of Kent’s School of Physical Sciences has found new evidence of a low-altitude meteoritic touchdown event reaching the Antarctic ice sheet 430,000 years ago. A research team of international space scientists, led by Dr. Matthias van Ginneken from the School of Physical Sciences‘ Centre for Astronomy and Planetary Science, has… Read More Extra-Terrestrial Particles Discovered in Antarctica Reveal Ancient Meteoritic Impact 430,000 Years Ago

Found: A Planet Close To Us With A Day That Lasts Forever And An Eternal Night Lit Up By Exploding Volcanoes

We know very little about exoplanets. Despite thousands out there confirmed by astronomers, little is known about whether they have atmospheres, water or anything else that may make them habitable. We only sometimes know how big they are and even how far they orbit from their host star. So the claim that a planet has… Read More Found: A Planet Close To Us With A Day That Lasts Forever And An Eternal Night Lit Up By Exploding Volcanoes

The first black hole ever discovered is more massive than previously thought

The first black hole ever discovered still has a few surprises in store. New observations of the black hole–star pair called Cygnus X-1 indicate that the black hole weighs about 21 times as much as the sun — nearly 1.5 times heavier than past estimates. The updated mass has astronomers rethinking how some black hole–forming… Read More The first black hole ever discovered is more massive than previously thought

IN 774 AD, THE SUN BLASTED EARTH WITH THE BIGGEST STORM IN 10,000 YEARS

In the year 774 AD, an enormously powerful blast of matter and energy from space slammed into Earth. Nothing like it had been felt on this planet for 10,000 years. A mix of high-energy light and hugely accelerated subatomic particles, when this wave impacted Earth it changed our atmospheric chemistry enough to be measured centuries… Read More IN 774 AD, THE SUN BLASTED EARTH WITH THE BIGGEST STORM IN 10,000 YEARS

Extended dark matter halo found circling ancient dwarf galaxy

Astronomers have discovered an extended dark matter halo encircling Tucana II, an ultra faint, ancient dwarf galaxy located 163,000 light years from Earth. The discovery, described Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy, suggests the cosmos’ first galaxies were more massive than scientists thought. Tucana II is one of dozens of tiny galaxies caught in the orbit… Read More Extended dark matter halo found circling ancient dwarf galaxy
