Curiosity's rear Hazcam recorded the shadow of the rover's rear in a 12-hour continuous view from sunrise to sunset toward the Gale Basin floor
The research director of the project on behalf of the European Space Agency: "The flight on top of Ariane 6 will not allow all the excess propellant material that will be necessary to lower the orbit. Instead we will slow the
In addition to its intriguing internal structure (and strange phenomena like diamond rain!), scientists believe that Neptune played an important role in the formation of the solar system and that its composition includes large amounts of gas that was part of the prestellar nebula
In this paper the authors argue that dark matter can be composed of particles called scalar bosons. The Higgs boson is a scalar boson but because of its mass it is not a candidate to form the dark matter
It is very difficult to squeeze the sun but the reward for the risk is a lot of knowledge about the planet that affects our lives
The tasks are TROPICS, EMIT, JPSS and SWOT. Each of them offers something unique and adds a new way to understand and protect our home
Prof. Avi Leib claimed following the discovery of the first bone that arrived clearly outside the solar system that it was an artificial bone; At the beginning of 2021, other scientists proposed the claim that it was a nitrogen glacier that broke away from a planet
A rare event that occurred in January 2020 still fascinates scientists, who are trying to learn about the structure of the neutron star with its help
It's too late for Umuamoa, but we can be ready for the next strange interstellar visitor if we want to. It is possible to design and build a spacecraft that will encounter such an object at short notice
The assessment is that most of them are misinterpretations of conventional events, for example flocks of birds or drones, military systems in a secret American experiment and the greatest fear is of superior technology developed by a foreign power
The researchers based their work on previous observational data that showed the asteroid is primarily a mixture of three components: metal, low-iron pyroxene and carbonaceous chondrite. A laboratory experiment led the researchers to the conclusion that density
The spacecraft will conduct its survey in infrared. Telescopes on Earth have found most of the nearby objects cataloged so far, but the remaining ones are very difficult to find in visible light
When LIGO and Virgo observe more black star collisions, they may observe many small black stars. If that happens, we may have to examine this idea of ​​darker matter more carefully
Organic materials have been found on meteorites before, but Yabusa was the first time a sample of an "S-type" asteroid was observed to contain organic molecules. It even came directly from the source, and was not subject to time periods
The Yabusa 2 spacecraft itself continued on its way and will meet with another asteroid in 2031
