A new cancer therapy study is wrapping up aboard the International Space Station this week as an American cargo craft is packed for return to Earth. The Expedition 56 crew also researched how astronauts perceive time and distance in space and back on Earth. Since the arrival of the AngieX Cancer Therapy, NASA astronaut Serena… Continue reading AngieX Cancer Therapy Is Wrapping Up Aboard The International Space Station
When you think of the Milky Way, you probably picture that familiar spiral shape we all have come to know and love. That spiral structure is very common for galaxies, Over three-quarters of the one’s we have observed, are in this pinwheel shape. Our own galaxy is actually in a subgroup called barred spiral galaxies. But… Continue reading Most Galaxies Spiral-Shaped,Why?
Millions of years after the Big Bang, some stars formed. These could have been the first stars that brought light into the universe. These stars formed right after the DARK AGES, which by the way is the time after the Big Bang but before there was any light, where the universe was filled with just dark… Continue reading The Very First Stars That Brought Light Into The Universe

Many ancient philosophers (like Kanada from India & Democritus from Greece) had a vague qualitative idea of the ultimate constituents of matter. Their views are… Continue reading Dalton’s Atomic Theory
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.
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.
Detonating a nuclear bomb seems like a risky business in general, but in the early 1960s, the US and the Soviet Union were busy trying to figure out what would happen if you set one off in space? The answer turned out to be something they didn’t really expect. A nuclear blast could cause a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse or EMP, a… Continue reading What Would Happen If You Detonate A Nuclear Bomb In Space?
More than 100 years ago, Albert Einstein and Wander Johannes de Haas discovered that when they used a magnetic field to flip the magnetic state of an iron bar dangling from a thread, the bar began to rotate. Now experiments at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have seen for the first time… Continue reading The Ultrafast Einstein–de Haas Effect
On Oct. 11, 2018, two astronauts piled into a Russian Soyuz spacecraft for what should have been a routine trip to the International Space Station.

The whole Universe is made of matter. Everything is made up of matter, you, me, smartphones, PC, Pizza, Puppies, Black-Holes everything you can possibly think of. But there is also this thing called antimatter. Around the turn of the last century, Einstein was working on the theory of relativity and other physicists were trying to… Continue reading Antimatter | Only Place Where Antimatter Can Survive
