  • The Effects of Space Weather on Aviation

    The Effects of Space Weather on Aviation

    Astronauts aren’t the only ones who need to worry about solar flares. Ordinary air travelers can also be exposed to significant doses of radiation during solar storms. A new computer model developed by NASA aims to help protect the public by predicting space weather hazards to aviation. The next time you step onto an airplane, consider the following: In any given year, the pilot of your aircraft probably absorbs as much radiation as a worker in a nuclear power plant […]

    Is NASA Hiding This?

    This video is silent. It was made about 2 months ago by Monte Williams. I have watched it a few times and cannot decide if its a hoax or he can really see what he is showing. All the photos used are freely available from the linked websites below. You decide what you see.Let me know your opinion.

  • New Year’s Asteroid Strike

    New Year’s Asteroid Strike

    Apparently while we were all very busy celebrating the arrival of 2014. there was another arrival that we ignored.Admittedly most if not all of us were in the dark about this event. Obviously NASA did not think that there was any danger to Earth. The New Year started off with a bang when a small asteroid hit Earth. Asteroid 2014 AA hit at approximately 11.10 EST on January first 2014. in fact it was ahead of the new year by […]

  • Colonizing Mars?

    Colonizing Mars?

    Have we found a solution to warming up Mars,solving the global warming problem here on Earth and making Mars a habitable planet? We know how to warm a planet quite well here on Earth…so why not use the same way on Mars? Or do we have an alternative way to use on Mars.Well watch this video and let me know what you think. Enjoy and share….

  • Warming Earth

    Warming Earth

    Since NASA began keeping temperature changes records in 1950,global temperatures have risen. This very short video shows how global temperatures have risen from 1950 through the end of 2013. NASA scientists say 2013 tied for the seventh warmest of any year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures. With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record. […]

  • Earth 2014

    Earth 2014

    Here we have a campaign unveiled by NASA to reveal the mysteries of a well known planet. Earth This is a huge challenge, our planet is changing and we are on it. How will it affect us? For the first time in more than a decade, five NASA Earth science missions will be launched into space in the same year, opening new and improved remote eyes to monitor our changing planet. The launches, including two to the International Space Station, […]

    Water on Spherical Screen

    NASA Premieres Unique Film on Water on Spherical Screen NASA has created a unique spherical film showing water’s journey and extensive impact as it cycles through Earth. “Water Falls,” created in partnership with the Global Precipitation Measurement mission, will premiere this month on spherical movie screens at special events hosted by The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, N.Y., and The Space Foundation in Colorado Springs, Colo. Shortly afterwards it will be released to more than 100 Science On a Sphere […]

  • Space Music?

    Space Music?

    The Sounds of Interstellar Space Here we have another myth debunked,scifi movies are sometimes criticized when explosions in the void make noise. As the old saying goes, “in space, no one can hear you scream.” Without air there is no sound.Not so, according to space physicist Don Gurnet indeed there is music in space. As Voyager 1 recedes from the solar system, researchers are listening for “interstellar music” (a.k.a. plasma waves) to learn more about conditions outside the heliosphere. To […]

    Rock Comet 3200 Phaethon

    Rock Comet Sprouts a Tail In this video we have one more piece of the puzzle that surrounds comets. Astronomers have long been puzzled by a certain meteor shower. Every year in mid-December the sky fills with flashes of light shooting out of the constellation Gemini. The Geminids are fast, bright, and reliable. They never fail to show up and many observers count them as the finest meteors of the year.But where do they come from? Meteor showers are supposed […]

  • Deepest Ever Probe of the Universe

    Deepest Ever Probe of the Universe

    NASA’s Great Observatories are teaming up to look deeper into the universe than ever before. With a boost from natural “zoom lenses” found in space, they should be able to uncover galaxies that are as much as 100 times fainter than what the Hubble, Spitzer, and Chandra space telescopes can typically see. This ambitious collaborative program is called The Frontier Fields. Astronomers will spend the next three years peering at six massive clusters of galaxies. Researchers are interested not only […]
