Solar System

The vehicle discovered a wide variety of heavy elements, but this is the first evidence of the presence of sulfur * The rover will tour the south pole of the moon for two weeks and look for signs of water ice
The Psyche spacecraft is launched to the metallic asteroid of the same name to understand what a planet's core looks like
The Vera Rubin Observatory's Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) will revolutionize solar system science by discovering a population of previously undiscovered interstellar comets and asteroids passing through our cosmic neighborhood
A team led by the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has created a model of the early impacts on Venus to explain how Earth's sister planet maintained a young surface despite not having plate tectonics.
The Bio-SPHERE project investigates potential living and working conditions on the Moon and Mars
Io is a raging volcanic world. NASA researchers are specifically looking at a "hot spot" observed by several spacecraft orbiting Jupiter that has grown from snapshot to snapshot
Researchers have discovered that the Juno spacecraft often encounters giant swirling waves at the boundary between the solar wind and Jupiter's magnetosphere
This is the first time that such an emission of water has been seen from such a great distance, and in addition, the web allows researchers a direct view, for the first time, of how this emission feeds the water supply of the entire system of Saturn and its rings
The launch at Coro in French Guiana was postponed from yesterday due to weather conditions * The spacecraft is carrying ten instruments, some of which are also made in Israel * Will arrive in the Zedek system in July 2031
The Juice spacecraft (JUPiter ICy moons Explorer), is a joint project of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian Space Agency (ASI), planned to explore three of Jupiter's icy moons: Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. The mission is scheduled to reach Jupiter in 2031
The purpose of the operation - to find out if the oceans hidden beneath the surface of Jupiter's icy moons have the potential to support extraterrestrial life
The Webb Space Telescope photographed in detail 11 of the rings surrounding Uranus-Uron
The European Space Agency ESA will launch on 13/4 the JUICE spacecraft on the historic mission to Jupiter, with technologies and scientific research funded by the Israel Space Agency at the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology
Engineers from the University of Arizona have developed a system that allows autonomous vehicles to scan underground habitats for astronauts
'Umoamua may be composed of hydrogen ice, which explains its unusual properties. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, but it is rarely found in the solid state
The article "Surface changes observed on a volcano in Venus during the Magellan mission" describes the analysis of the observations in which surface changes were discovered on the Sif Mons volcano during the Magellan spacecraft mission in 1991-1994
In a scientific article published this week in the journal NATURE there is a detailed report on the successful demonstration of the kinetic impactor technology by DART: a reconstruction of the impact itself, a report on the timeline until the impact, detailing the location and nature of the impact site, and the documentation of the size and shape of Dimorphus
Green Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) will approach Earth on February 1st and, although pale in the northern sky, will be seen near the carts/bears before sailing into deep space for millions of years if ever to return
Cracks crossing land formations on Mars indicate that Mars is a much more active planet than previously thought
These dark spots on the Sun, visible in ultraviolet light, are called coronal holes and are areas where fast solar wind bursts out into space. By chance, they managed to take a photo that looked like the sun was smiling.
The newly discovered 2022 AP7 orbits the Sun every five years, and currently crosses Earth's orbit when Earth is on the other side of the Sun from it. Eventually its motion will synchronize with that of Earth and it will pass much closer in a few hundred years
Researchers simulated the harsh ionizing radiation conditions of Mars to see how long freeze-dried bacteria and fungi could survive
Scientists from Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology have used the most detailed supercomputer simulations to date to uncover an alternative explanation for the origin of the Moon, in which a giant impact put a Moon-like body in orbit around Earth.
This was announced by the SpaceIL association. ImageSat is an old Israeli company that provides high-resolution satellite photographs of sites on Earth, and now one of the devices on Lavinia will map the moon in collaboration with researchers at Ben Gurion University
Israeli scientists participated in the DART asteroid interception project
