Asteroid Redirect Mission:Identify, Redirect, Explore
With the help of star gazers from around the planet NASA is developing a first-ever mission to identify, capture and redirect a near-Earth asteroid to a stable orbit around the moon, where astronauts will explore it in the 2020s, returning with samples.

How Can We Live On Mars Without A Spacesuit?

Trace from Dnews explains to us how this is possible. It seems that we already have the technology to do this.One day, it might be possible to live on Mars without a spacesuit! How could this be possible? Apparently we need the process of terraforming in order to one day live on the Red Planet.
Let me know your thoughts about this video.

Evidence Of Supernovas Near Earth

Once every 50 years more or less a star explodes somewhere in the Milky Way.
These terrific blasts may cause innumerable problems for us Earthlings….so you would think that we don’t want any of these Supernovas to explode near us, but it seems that we are in fact inside a Supernova remnant!
A NASA sounding rocket has confirmed that the solar system is inside an ancient supernova remnant. Life on Earth survived despite the nearby blasts.So it would seem that our life form is as adaptable as the animals that do adapt every day to new environments forced on them by us.

Study of Comets Reveals Chemical Factory at Work

NASA’s 3-D Study of Comets Reveals Chemical Factory at Work
A NASA-led team of scientists has created detailed 3-D maps of the atmospheres surrounding comets, identifying several gases and mapping their spread at the highest resolution ever achieved.
“We achieved truly first-of-a-kind mapping of important molecules that help us understand the nature of comets,” said Martin Cordiner, a researcher working in the Goddard Center for Astrobiology at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Cordiner led the international team of researchers.
Almost unheard of for comet studies, the 3-D perspective provides deeper insight into which materials are shed from the nucleus of the comet and which are produced within the atmosphere, or coma. This helped the team nail down the sources of two key organic, or carbon-containing, molecules.
The observations were conducted in 2013 on comets Lemmon and ISON using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, or ALMA, a network of high-precision antennas in Chile. These comets are the first to be studied with ALMA.
The ALMA observations combine a high-resolution 2-D image of a comet’s gases with a detailed spectrum at each point. From these spectra, researchers can identify the molecules present at every point and determine their velocities (speed plus direction) along the line-of-sight; this information provides the third dimension – the depth of the coma.
“So, not only does ALMA let us identify individual molecular species in the coma, it also gives us the ability to map their locations with great sensitivity,” said Anthony Remijan, a scientist with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, one of the organizations that operates ALMA, and a co-author of the study.
The researchers reported results for three molecular species, focusing primarily on two whose sources have been difficult to discern (except in comet Halley). The 3-D maps indicated whether each molecule was flowing outward evenly in all directions or coming off in jets or in clumps.
