Researchers are first to combine 3D climate modeling with atmospheric chemistry to explore the habitability of planets around M dwarf stars, which comprise about 70% of the total galactic population.
It’s very small and very cool.
Mysterious gap has led to a wide variety of accusations.
New NASA research confirms that Saturn is losing its iconic rings at the maximum rate estimated from Voyager 1 & 2 observations made decades ago. The rings are being pulled into Saturn by gravity as a dusty rain of ice particles under the influence of Saturn’s magnetic field.
Scientists have created the soundtrack of the 5,000th Mars sunrise captured by the robotic exploration rover, Opportunity, using data sonification techniques to create a two-minute piece of music.
Launched in 2009, Kepler’s mission was actually born in the early 80s as scientists began to turn their attention to finding planets with similar characteristics to home. Here are just some of the cool discoveries made possible due to the intergalactic telescope.
There’s something mysterious coming up from the frozen ground in Antarctica, and it could break physics as we know it.
Scientists expect to find much more about the strange worlds in the coming years.
The giant space rock is barreling through space at breakneck speeds of 19.34 km/s or 43,262mph.
Earth and Mars will be closer together in distance than they have for 15 years, making the Red Planet easily visible with the naked eye.
Spring has arrived in the ocean, and with an incredible psychedelic visual effect. NASA’s stunning snapshot of a vibrant phytoplankton bloom in the North Atlantic Ocean could almost pass for Read More…
Scientists at NASA and the International Potato Center (CIP) in Lima, Peru, have successfully grown tubers in an experiment that recreates the extreme conditions on the surface of Mars, in a NASA-backed project called “Potatoes on Mars.”
NASA announced a remarkable, groundbreaking new find in a press conference on Wednesday: an entire new solar system filled with planets similar to Earth and could potentially support life. Researchers revealed that they have made perhaps the most promising exoplanet discovery ever, finding seven planets that are in orbit around a relatively nearby star,
NASA and the NOAA have jointly confirmed that 2016 was the hottest year in recorded history, ever since mankind began recordkeeping in 1880. The record was previously held by 2015, and prior to that, by 2014. At the end of October, Arctic ice was at its second-lowest point since we started keeping track.
