Exploration of ocean worlds has become a hot topic of late, primarily due to their role as a potential harbour for alien life. Moons that have confirmed subsurface oceans garner much of the attention, such as Enceladus and Europa. But they may not be the only ones. Uranus’ larger moons—Miranda, Ariel and Umbriel could potentially… Continue reading What mission could detect oceans at Uranus’ moons?
EFFECTS OF BLACK HOLES BEYOND THEIR OWN GALAXIES
At the heart of almost every sufficiently massive galaxy, there is a black hole whose gravitational field, although very intense, affects only a small region around the centre of the galaxy. Even though these objects are thousands of millions of times smaller than their host galaxies, our current view is that the Universe can be… Continue reading EFFECTS OF BLACK HOLES BEYOND THEIR OWN GALAXIES
ASTEROID 16 PSYCHE MIGHT NOT BE WHAT SCIENTISTS EXPECTED
The widely studied metallic asteroid known as 16 Psyche was long thought to be the exposed iron core of a small planet that failed to form during the solar system’s earliest days. But new University of Arizona-led research suggests that the asteroid might not be as metallic or dense as once thought and hints at… Continue reading ASTEROID 16 PSYCHE MIGHT NOT BE WHAT SCIENTISTS EXPECTED
SCIENTISTS DISCOVER A NEW EXOPLANET WITH A RIPE ATMOSPHERE
An international group of collaborators, including scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and The University of New Mexico, have discovered a new, temperate sub-Neptune sized exoplanet with a 24-day orbital period orbiting a nearby M dwarf star. The recent discovery offers exciting research opportunities thanks to the planet’s substantial atmosphere, small star, and how fast… Continue reading SCIENTISTS DISCOVER A NEW EXOPLANET WITH A RIPE ATMOSPHERE
NASA’S JUNO SPACECRAFT CAPTURED SOME DRAMATIC IMAGES OF THE ICY ORB, GANYMEDE
NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s largest moon than any other in more than two decades, offering dramatic glimpses of the icy orb. The first two images from NASA Juno’s June 7, 2021, flyby of Jupiter’s giant moon Ganymede have been received on Earth. The photos – one from the Jupiter orbiter’s JunoCam imager… Continue reading NASA’S JUNO SPACECRAFT CAPTURED SOME DRAMATIC IMAGES OF THE ICY ORB, GANYMEDE
FOR THE FIRST TIME, ASTRONOMERS HAVE OBSERVED ALFVEN WAVES IN THE PHOTOSPHERE OF THE SUN
As we all know, the Sun is a giant ball of plasma, and like any plasma, it should support Alfven waves. Alfven waves are waves in a plasma where the ions move in response to tension from a magnetic field. Scientists predicted it 50 years ago until now we had not been able to see them. … Continue reading FOR THE FIRST TIME, ASTRONOMERS HAVE OBSERVED ALFVEN WAVES IN THE PHOTOSPHERE OF THE SUN
3D Printing Future Of Building Home
Imagine if your home could be built in days. 3D printing has the potential to build your house from the ground up faster and for less money than a conventional home which means amongst other things, no more smoothing concrete by hand. The technology can physically produce a product of almost any shape based on… Continue reading 3D Printing Future Of Building Home
Neuralink Let’s Become Cyborgs
Many experts believe that even at the early stage of True AI, humans will be left behind at some specific task from AI. And I personally believe that AI will surpass us at some point, which is a threat to humanity. Neuralink is Elon Musk‘s answer to the threat artificial intelligence poses to the human… Continue reading Neuralink Let’s Become Cyborgs
CAN YOU DRINK SNAKE VENOM?
If I were to ask you whether it’s safe to drink snake venom, you would probably have a very firm answer right away. Either you would automatically say no because snakes wield deadly poisons. Or, if you are a science-savvy, you might unequivocally say yes, because snakes wield venoms, not poisons. Well, I am here… Continue reading CAN YOU DRINK SNAKE VENOM?
OLYMPUS MONS, A LARGE SHIELD VOLCANO ON MARS
As we all know Olympus Mons is the most extreme volcano in the solar system, which is located in the Tharsis volcanic region of Mars. Its height of 25 kilometres makes it nearly three times the height of Earth’s Mount Everest, which is about 8.9 km high.
SUPERVOLCANO: KNOW ALL ABOUT AN EXTINCTION LEVEL THREAT TO HUMAN RACE
A supervolcano is capable of eruptions thousands of times larger than normal outpouring that has had an eruption with a Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) of 8, the largest recorded value on the index.
WHAT IS A SOLAR STORM? LEARN ALL ABOUT SOLAR STORMS
A solar storm is a disturbance on the Sun, which can emanate outward across the heliosphere, affecting the entire Solar System, including Earth and its magnetosphere, and is the cause of space weather in the short-term with long-term patterns comprising space climate.
MEASURING THE SPIN OF A BLACK HOLE
Astronomers are able to measure the masses of black holes in a relatively straightforward way: watching how matter moves in their vicinity (including other black holes), affected by the gravitational field.
THE BRAIN AND ITS BLOOD VESSELS
The study sets the foundation for a better understanding of how neural cells and blood vessels talk to each other in the brain and illustrates how changes in the metabolic milieu of one cell type in a complex organ can directly impact the functionality of surrounding cells.
SOME PROGRESS AT LAST! MARS INSIGHT’S MOLE IS NOW UNDERGROUND
After several assists from InSight Lander’s arm, the mole appears to be underground. It’s been a real challenge troubleshooting for NASA & DLR from millions of miles away. We still need to see if the mole can dig on its own. There was no way to predict the duracrust and what it meant for the Mole. The future is still uncertain.
