  • An Exoplanet’s Sweet Spot?

    An Exoplanet’s Sweet Spot?

    A new statistical study of planets found by a technique called gravitational microlensing suggests that Neptune-mass worlds are likely the most common type of planet to form in the icy outer realms of planetary systems. The study provides the first indication of the types of planets waiting to be found far from a host star, where scientists suspect planets form most efficiently. Contrary to some theoretical predictions, the most numerous cold exoplanets have masses similar to Neptune, and there doesn’t […]

  • Orbiting Planets

    This is amazing. Watching the orbiting planets is an amazing experience. While we carry on with our lives we don’t think of all that is also happening around us. The sun and the moon are probably the only thing that we think about if at all, but there are all the other planets ans stars always in motion as well, and the music is very relaxing as well. For you to enjoy and share with your friends.

  • Hubble-Exoplanets and the hunt for life

    Hubble-Exoplanets and the hunt for life

    Since astronomers discovered that the stars in the sky are other suns, humanity has wondered if they are also orbited by planets and if those planets host alien life. Since the discovery of the first exoplanet only 25 years ago Hubble is among the many instruments trying to answer these questions. This new Hubblecast tells the story of what we know so far and what we can hope for in the future. Enjoy and share……..

  • Pluto Grows More Mysterious

    Pluto Grows More Mysterious

    NASA’s New Horizons mission to the dwarf planet Pluto has provided scientists on Earth with countless puzzles and mysteries. From impossible “sand dunes,” which were never expected on the tiny planet’s frozen surface, to equally unexpected giant mountains, to a surprising absence of so-called impact craters, and selective regional cratering, with highly circular craters not to be expected on any Kuiper Belt object. And now, a team working with the Chandra X-ray Observatory has reported perhaps the greatest surprise about […]

  • 25 Recent Space Discoveries That Blew Our Minds.

    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 […]

  • Caloris Basin

    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 […]

    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……
