NASA finds 10 more habitable, Earth-like exoplanets

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 20:01:02 +0000

NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler Space Telescope mission has resulted in the discovery of more than 200 new candidates since the last time data was released by the US space agency, including 10 nearly-Earth sized, potentially habitable new worlds, various media outlets have reported. During a briefing held on Monday, Kepler scientists revealed that the latest round […]

Newfound exoplanet is hotter than most stars

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 16:16:30 +0000

A newly-discovered planet is undergoing such extreme irradiation from its sun that it is hotter than most stars and has a giant glowing gas tail similar to those that form on comets, according to a new study published online Monday in the journal Nature. The research, which was also presented at the 2017 spring meeting […]

Ancient Earth-like lake on Mars could have been full of life

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 12:39:36 +0000

An ancient lake in Mars’ Gale Crater had physical and chemical properties extremely close to those found in similar bodies of water on Earth, and multiple environments in these areas could have supported life, according to research published Friday in the journal Science. As part of the study, Stony Brook University geoscientist Dr. Joel Hurowitz […]

Third time’s a charm: LIGO detects gravitational waves for a third time

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 12:28:02 +0000

Scientists at the Advanced LIGO facility in Washington have once again detected gravitational waves, marking the third time in 18 months that the facility has observed ripples in the fabric of space-time that were originally predicted by Albert Einstein more than 100 years ago. Officially known as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, LIGO previously announced […]

We’ve created a ‘bubble’ around the Earth

Fri, 19 May 2017 15:10:37 +0000

The effects of human activity have long been cited as a primary cause of global climate change, but new research from NASA has revealed that our use of technology also appears to be having an impact not just on the planet, but on Earth’s near-space environment as well. As the US space agency announced on […]

NASA’s Mars plans include a one-year mission to the Moon

Fri, 12 May 2017 18:00:05 +0000

Before sending a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s, NASA may have a group of astronauts spend a year in orbit around the moon, officials from the space agency’s Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate revealed earlier this week at an event in Washington DC. Speaking at the Human to Mars Summit on Tuesday, […]

Atmosphere of distant ‘warm Neptune’ fascinates astronomers

Fri, 12 May 2017 16:17:27 +0000

A mixture of images from NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer telescopes has resulted in fascinating observations of the exoplanet HAT-P-26b, which is classified as a ‘warm Neptune’. Water vapor and exotic clouds have been spotted in the atmosphere of the distant alien planet, which is 430 light-years away from Earth. The planet displayed a preponderance of […]

Ancient Australian rocks could hold the key to finding life on Mars

Wed, 10 May 2017 17:43:35 +0000

Where did life on Earth begin? Answering that question might help us pinpoint where to look for life on Mars. One theory about how life began on Earth posits that it was in freshwater hot spring environments on land. This contradicts the popular theory that it started in deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Charles Darwin even put […]

(Video) Classified space plane returns to Earth after nearly 2 years in space

Mon, 08 May 2017 16:47:55 +0000

Nearly two years after it launched, the US Air Force’s reusable, unmanned X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle ended its classified mission on Sunday, becoming the first spacecraft in nearly six years to touch down at the Kennedy Space Center’s Shuttle Landing Facility in Florida. It was the fourth mission for the USAF’s X-37B program, and according […]
