The search for planets, stars, and life has led scientists to some strange discoveries in our universe, including planets orbiting other galaxies several light-years away. There are things that are beyond our understanding and that defy our traditional laws of physics. Therefore, no matter how hard we try to understand and explain our vast universe,… Continue reading Top 10 Strangest Planets in the Universe
Space exploration has always been a magnet for theories of disinformation and conspiracy. If you don’t want to be fooled, here are some myths you shouldn’t fall for. Many countries have dedicated decades and huge amounts of money to space exploration, for the simple purpose of getting to know the universe, the solar system we… Continue reading The Biggest Myths About Space Exploration You Shouldn’t Believe
The “Starlink” project by SpaceX and Elon Musk aims to make high-speed Internet available everywhere. Many satellites are required for this – that is a source of criticism. The private space company SpaceX of Elon Musk wants fast Internet from space For this purpose, thousands of satellites are to be brought into orbit Astronomers have… Continue reading SpaceX’s “Starlink” satellites: This is what’s behind Elon Musk’s project
Asteroid hitting earth: the next scenario is apocalyptic. Let’s make it clear from the beginning that it’s not real. But just imagining it is terrifying. An asteroid is rapidly approaching the Earth. It’s between 100 and 300 meters long and, if it were to impact our planet, it would release between 100,000 and 800,000 kilo tonnes… Continue reading NASA prepares for a possible impact of an asteroid against Earth
The star TYC 8998-760-1 develops similarly to our Sun, but is much younger. Now researchers have taken a picture of it for the first time. Two exoplanets can also be seen in this image. Astronomers have for the first time taken a picture of a special planetary system 300 light years away. Using a telescope… Continue reading Astronomers photograph young planetary system, 300 light years away.
The American space agency NASA wants to send astronauts from the US to the International Space Station ISS on 27 May for the first time in almost a decade. NASA director Jim Bridenstine announced this on Friday (local time) via Twitter. NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are launched with a Falcon 9 rocket… Continue reading NASA Plans: astronauts to ISS for the first time in late May with SpaceX
Space travel affects the human brain in strange and unexpected ways. New research has shown that prolonged periods in space increase the brain mass of astronauts by up to 6%. The astronauts’ brain grows up to 6% after a prolonged space flights in space. However, when it comes to this aspect, size is not everything and… Continue reading It’s official: Astronaut’s brain grows after spaceflight in outer space
When astronomers discovered the SN2016aps supernova in 2016, they knew they were dealing with something colossal, though not exactly what its magnitude was. Today they already have more certainties. it is the “brightest, most energetic and probably most massive supernova ever identified”. Scientists at the Harvard & Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics came to that conclusion… Continue reading SN2016aps: what the brightest and most massive supernova ever detected looks like
Humans have long had the vision of colonizing foreign planets. Science fiction films and novels present future scenarios in which humans travel the universe and inhabit foreign planets. Mars is most similar to Earth among the planets in our solar system. Nevertheless, its conditions are not suitable for human life. Mars is very cold and… Continue reading Is there a greenhouse effect on Mars?
Explore the surface of the moon with rovers the size of a Roomba in the future. Of course, this also requires correspondingly compact instruments. The NASA mini moon rover is the answer. To collect ideas for this, the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) http://jpl.nasa.gov is now using crowdsourcing. The competition “Honey, I Shrunk the NASA Payload”… Continue reading NASA mini moon rover crowdsourcing (NASApayload)
