NASA’s WISE has surfaced a far-flung galaxy, which is supposed to be shining intensely with infrared light with an intensity of nearly 300 trillion suns. The extremely luminous infrared galaxy (ELIRGs) is one of the most luminous galaxies to be discovered till date. Space evolution Chao-Wei Tsai at NASA’s JPL claimed that they have been witnessing an enormous stage of evolution taking place across galaxy. They are assuming that the source of the intense light could be from the growing spout of the galaxy’s black hole. According to Professor Andrew…
In an effort to solve world climatic problem, Lauren Fletcher, the founder of a drone start-up called BioCarbon Engineering, is planning to employ drones for planting seedlings across forests.
Mr. Miller a passionate photographer journeyed across the US for a project, which required capturing stills from the abandoned NASA sites. He explored nearly 16 space launch sites including research facilities in Virginia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Kansas, Utah, New Mexico, and California. We are indebted to Mr. Miller’s effort because of which we were able to see the photographs of various space program’s forgotten history. Many of these sites have been demolished or repurposed especially the facilities at Cape Canaveral. Since the sites are still under the jurisdiction…
Advanced mathematics coupled with severe mental illness, this is what the book, A Beautiful Mind is about. Sylvia Nasar professor of journalism at Columbia University, has done full justice in surfacing Nash’s life, his youth, college life, his work before and after he earned his doctorate and finally to his breakdown then illness and eventually his recovery. A Beautiful Mind juxtaposes sadness and the will to succeed despondency and depression.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) keep coming up with new era robots that can be sent to space for exploration. There are certain limitations in each design such as time taking research, clumsy motions and prone to damage. Therefore, NASA is trying to design a bot that can transform the traditional way robots perform work assigned to them here on our planet or in the space. They are aiming to build a Super Ball Bot, which looks more like a motor fitted in between a mesh of rods…
Researchers and scientists are always curious to find life on other planets and tries to find whether other planets could ever sustain life. NASA is trying to find an answer to one such question and is planning to grow plants on moon, with the assistance of a robot, few cameras and thousands of schoolchildren. In 2015, a group of NASA scientist named as The Lunar Plant Growth Habitat Team, along with volunteers, contractors and students will be trying to bring life on other planet, which has been never attempted so…
Researchers at the University of California San Diego have come up with an innovative approach in creating soft bot that is devoid of any electronics. Rather it is an air powered robot. All its controls and locomotion are done with the help of pressurized air.
Oumuamua was name given to the mysterious interstellar object that passed through our solar system in 2017. What’s special about this object was, it happened to be the first that had come from ‘outside’ our solar system.
Dark matter is one of the key ingredients in the understanding of evolution and in the formation of galaxies. Majority of scientists are of the view that dark matter consists of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMP). It is because of their weak interactions with matter that we see around, it becomes extremely difficult to detect.
Ocean-Monitoring Satellite Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich launched at 9:17 a.m. PST on Nov. 21, 2020, from Space Launch Complex-4 at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) in California.
One of the most famous quotes from Interstellar ‘Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here”, throws light on the intrinsic fear that we all have. Fear of being extinct. Mankind wants to leave the planet Earth, thus escaping extinction. And this is the motif behind all missions of Mars.
COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has forced the world to halt all its processes. Be it huge corporations or small budget enterprises, everything has come to a standstill.
Astronauts harnessed the microgravity environment at the International Space Station by developing an ‘exotic’ form of matter. We call it exotic because this form of matter has not been easily observed on earth – maybe due to gravity.
Our devices might never go out of internet coverage area. Musk plans to provide global internet connection to everyone and anywhere in the world. Connectivity speed too will be above average, that is, more than home WIFI (50Mb/s).
The rings around Saturn appear to be wrapped around the intersection of the planet’s edge or layer near the horizon. The atmospheric limb here acts as a gigantic lens.
