  • Turning Black Holes into Dark Matter Labs

    Turning Black Holes into Dark Matter Labs

    Jeremy Schnittman, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Cneter, developed a computer simulation to follow the orbits of hundreds of millions of dark matter particles, as well as the gamma rays produced when they collide, in the vicinity of a black hole. He found that some gamma rays escaped with energies far exceeding what had been previously regarded as theoretical limits. A new computer simulation tracking dark matter particles in the extreme gravity of a black hole shows that […]

    International Spacecraft Carrying NASA’s Aquarius Instrument Ends Operations

    An international Earth-observing mission launched in 2011 to study the salinity of the ocean surface ended June 8 when an essential part of the power and attitude control system for the SAC-D spacecraft, which carries NASA’s Aquarius instrument, stopped operating. The Aquarius instrument successfully achieved its science objectives and completed its primary three-year mission in November 2014. This video provides a global tour of sea surface salinity using measurements taken by NASA’s Aquarius instrument aboard the Aquarius/SAC-D spacecraft, from December […]

  • Laser Focus

    Laser Focus

    In this video, optical engineer Tyler Evans illustrates how the laser is transmitted from the ATLAS instrument to the ground. ICESat-2’s instrument, ATLAS, is designed to measure heights on Earth. ATLAS has three main tasks: transmitting a pattern of six laser beams, collecting the laser photons that return to the satellite after reflecting off Earth, and recording the travel time of those photons. First up, transmitting the laser. Enjoy and share…. Celestron 21041 60mm PowerSeeker Telescope Old Price: $69.95 Price: […]

  • Milestone For New Exploration Mission To Europa

    Milestone For New Exploration Mission To Europa

    NASA’s planned mission to Europa has passed its first internal review and now enters the stage known as formulation. This would be NASA’s first visit to Jupiter or its moons since New Horizons flew by on its way to Pluto, and the first dedicated science probe since the Galileo mission wrapped up its tour of Jupiter and its moons in 2003. Europa is one of the leading candidates for worlds that might support life beyond Earth. The mission, which doesn’t […]

  • Nasa’s Latest Scary Discovery

    Nasa’s Latest Scary Discovery

    The world is running out of fresh water:Nasa’s latest scary discovery Drought-stricken California is not the only place draining underground aquifers in the hunt for fresh water. It’s happening across the world, according to two studies by United States researchers made public a few days ago. 21 of the world’s 37 largest aquifers,in locations from India and China to the United States and France,have passed their sustainability tipping points, meaning more water is being removed than replaced from these vital […]

  • Ultra High Definition Video from the ISS

    Ultra High Definition Video from the ISS

    As we become more and more interested about life in space, NASA is releasing more footage of what life in space is like for our astronauts. Here is a video depicting it. The view of life in space is getting a major boost with the introduction of 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD) video, providing an unprecedented look at what it’s like to live and work aboard the International Space Station. This important new capability will allow researchers to acquire high resolution […]

  • Video Of Earth From Space!

    Video Of Earth From Space!

    New Highly Detailed Satellite Video Of Earth From Space! Looking at photos and videos of Earth from space is a breathtaking experience, and now, it’s going to be even better! NASA has released images from the Cassini Solstice mission — that is currently orbiting the ringed gas giant Saturn — depicting the distant dot of Earth and the moon from 900 million miles away. But this certainly isn’t the first time the “Pale Blue Dot” has been spotted across the […]

    I’m Back

    Comet probe Philae wakes up Miraculously from Shadow of 67P The European space probe Philae woke up overnight after nearly seven months in hibernation as it hurtled towards the Sun on the back of a comet. The tiny robot lab may be ready to resume science work, adding a fresh chapter to its extraordinary voyage, excited officials said. “Hello Earth! Can you hear me?” the washing machine-sized lander tweeted under the hashtag #WakeUpPhilae. Enjoy and share…… Celestron 31042 AstroMaster 114 […]
