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

Elon Musk is creating a city in Texas, it will be called Starbase and it would be ruled by ‘the Doge’

If anyone has the ability to surprise the world with his ambitious projects, it is Elon Musk .

Astronomers Locate Source of Hazardous High-Energy Particles in the Sun

The source of potentially hazardous solar particles, released from the Sun at high speed during storms in its outer atmosphere, has been located for the first time by researchers at UCL and George Mason University, Virginia, USA. These particles are highly charged and, if they reach Earth’s atmosphere, can potentially disrupt satellites and electronic infrastructure,… Read More Astronomers Locate Source of Hazardous High-Energy Particles in the Sun

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

Report recommends NASA accelerate space nuclear propulsion development

WASHINGTON — NASA needs to pursue “aggressive” development of space nuclear propulsion technologies if the agency wants to use them for human missions to Mars in the next two decades, a report by a National Academies committee concluded. A Feb. 12 study by the National Academies, sponsored by NASA, said both nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) and… Read More Report recommends NASA accelerate space nuclear propulsion development

NASA spacecraft mission to asteroid worth ‘more than global economy’ nears launch

A NASA mission to send a spacecraft to an asteroid worth so much it could collapse the world’s economy is to enter its “final phase” after the plans cleared a massive hurdle. The asteroid, named 16 Psyche, is 252 km-wide – nearly 17 times bigger than the asteroid that led to the extinction of dinosaurs millions of years ago. Psyche is… Read More NASA spacecraft mission to asteroid worth ‘more than global economy’ nears launch
