Beyond Earth’s atmosphere are swirling clouds of energized particles — ions and electrons — that emanate from the sun. This “solar wind” buffets the magnetosphere, the magnetic force field that surrounds Earth. In much the same way winds and storms...
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has discovered its first Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of its star. And though TESS has already proven its worth over the last few years, it's...
A team of researchers super glued Velcro to the skin of the cuttlefish and attached 3D glass with red and blue lenses. The aquatic animals, who are from the same family as squid and octopuses, have the ability to watch...
On April 25, 2019, the LIGO Livingston Observatory picked up what appeared to be gravitational ripples from a collision of two neutron stars. LIGO Livingston is part of a gravitational-wave network that includes LIGO (the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory),...
A new study identifies the non-native species most likely to ‘invade’ the Antarctic Peninsula region over the next decade. It provides a baseline for all operators in the region to look at mitigation measures. The study is published today...
NASA has unveiled the supersized Space Launch System (SLS) which will help launch astronauts in the Artemis I mission to return man to the moon – as well as the first woman – in 2024 before colonising Mars. The 212-foot-long...
Bizarre hums that were heard around the world in 2018 have now been identified as the rumblings of a magma-filled reservoir deep under the Indian Ocean, announcing the birth of an underwater volcano, according to a new study Since May...
Loral O'Hara, a Clements High school graduate, and 12 other new astronauts are now eligible for missions to the ISS, the moon and even Mars. The new astronauts successfully completed more than two years of required basic training and...
New research suggests that water can escape from the Martian environment way faster than previously thought, potentially answering the question of why Mars – once a lush planet of lakes and rain clouds – is now a dry and...
Astronomers have discovered the largest gas structure in the Milky Way, which stretches for 9,000 light-years and measures 400 light-years across. The structure connects stellar nurseries throughout its length and goes up and down the Milky Way’s disk like...
