• 25 Recent Space Discoveries That Blew Our Minds.

    The universe is one of the most fascinating topics we come across. We are intrigued by the possibilities that space travel brings, including the colonization of other planets and the potential discovery of sentient life like our own across the universe. For generations, looking up at the cosmos has nurtured our imagination and even guided our lives and travel. Though our ancestors were often skilled astronomers and mathematicians, their skills and resources only permitted them to go so far in […]

  • 56,000 MPH Space Rock Hits Moon

    A NASA moon monitoring telescope captured the blast, which could be seen by the naked eye on Earth, on March 17th, 2013. The object was the size of a small boulder and may be part of a meteor swarm that also flew past Earth — Record-Breaking Meteorite Crash on Moon Sparks Brightest Lunar Explosion Ever Enjoy and share……

  • Are We Alone?

    Galactic Civilization Challenge The Drake Equation tells us the likelihood that there are other advanced technological civilizations waiting for us among the stars. Everything we’ve learned about our universe tells us that it is very unlikely we are alone. Frank Drake and his Drake Equation compute exactly how unlikely this is. The answer may surprise you.

  • Black Holes from the Dawn of Time

    Primordial black holes may be lurking throughout our universe. How large are they, how many are out there and what would happen if they moved through our solar system? Scientists believe that many black holes may have been created at the time of the Big Bang and and are still roaming our universe today. If we found them they would tell us a great deal about the origins of the cosmos. Enjoy and share………

  • Caloris Basin

    What happens when you have no atmosphere The Caloris Basin Mercury has a very tenuous and transient atmosphere, containing small amounts of hydrogen and helium captured from the solar wind, as well as heavier elements such as sodium and potassium. These are thought to originate within the planet, being “out-gassed” from beneath its crust. The Caloris basin has been found to be a significant source of sodium and potassium, indicating that the fractures created by the impact facilitate the release […]

  • Curiosity Mars Rover Looks Back on Murray Buttes

    This 360-degree panorama was acquired by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover while the rover was in an area called “Murray Buttes” on lower Mount Sharp, one of the most scenic landscapes yet visited by any Mars rover. The view stitches together many individual images taken by Mastcam’s left-eye camera on Sept. 4, 2016, during the 1,451st Martian day, or sol, of the mission. The rover’s location when it recorded this scene was the site it reached […]

    Eta Carinae

    Explosive Star System’s Turbulence Revealed in Best View Yet One of astronomy’s most famous stellar pairs sports strange structures in the windy zone between the two stars, according to new observations from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI). Eta Carinae is a star system located about 7,500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Carina. The new images, released today (Oct. 19), provide unprecedented detail of the windy area between the two stars, which could help scientists better […]

    Fermi Finds Record-breaking Binary Star

    Using data from NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and other facilities, scientists have found the first gamma-ray binary in another galaxy and the most luminous one ever seen. The dual-star system, dubbed LMC P3, contains a massive star and a crushed stellar core that interact to produce a cyclic flood of gamma rays, the highest-energy form of light. Gamma-ray binaries are rare — only six are known in our own galaxy, and one remains undetected by Fermi. The systems are […]

    Impact Threat Rising

    Astronomers Confirm 15000 Near-Earth Astronomers discovered more than 15,000 asteroids which could potentially pose a threat to Earth, according to a Friday release. Global asteroid detection programs found more than 15,146 near-Earth objects of all sizes with 1,532 new near-Earth objects being identified this year alone, according to International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planets Center. These newly discovered near-Earth objects are part of a much larger population of more than 700,000 known asteroids in our Solar System. Enjoy and share……

    Juno Spacecraft Captures Spooky Sounds Coming From Jupiter?

    The noises coming from Jupiter sound like they’re straight out of a Halloween movie. When NASA’s Juno spacecraft made its first full orbit around Jupiter on August 27, an instrument on board called Waves recorded the gas giant’s auroras. The emissions of the light show—which is similar to the northern and southern lights on Earth but on a vastly larger scale—were discovered in the 1950s but never able to be analyzed up close until now.

    Jupiter’s Ocean of Metallic Liquid Hydrogen

    Probably one of the most interesting clips and facts I’ve encountered in a while. Jupiter has a long list of oddities. For one thing, it’s enormous, containing 70% of our solar system’s planetary material, yet it is not like the rocky world beneath our feet. Jupiter is so gassy, it seems more like a star. Jupiter’s atmosphere brews hurricanes twice as wide as Earth itself, monsters that generate 400 mph winds and lightning 100 times brighter than terrestrial bolts. The […]

    Life on Mars Found by NASA’s 1976 Viking Mission?

    A fresh look at NASA data suggests that a robotic mission uncovered microbial life on Mars—more than 30 years ago. In 1976 NASA sent two space probes, Vikings 1 and 2, to Mars to determine whether life exists on the red planet. The probes carried three experiments specially designed for the task, one of which was called the Labeled Release (LR) apparatus. The LR experiment worked by scooping up a bit of Martian soil and mixing it with a drop […]

    Star-quakes – Pulsars and Quasars

    Star-quakes A star-quake is an astrophysical phenomenon that occurs when the crust of a neutron star undergoes a sudden adjustment, analogous to an earthquake on Earth. A paper published in 2003 in Scientific American by Kouveliotou, Duncan & Thompson suggests these star-quakes to be the source of the giant gamma ray flares that are produced approximately once per decade from soft gamma repeaters. Star-quakesare thought to result from two different mechanisms. One is the huge stresses exerted on the surface […]
