Astronomy and space research is a dream for many. It is a pride to contribute and also work for one of the world's greatest space agency, NASA. NASA, recently called for the post of Planetary Protection Officer. This position in NASA has been since 1960s. The space agency received several applications from all around the globe. A fourth grader from New...
NASA's new study shows that updrafts are more important than previously understood in determining what makes clouds produce drizzle. Scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion, UCLA and the University of Tokyo have found that low-lying clouds over the ocean produce more drizzle droplets than the same type of cloud over land. According to the study, water droplets in clouds initially form on microscopic...
Nidhogg 2's PS4/PC Release Date
Nidhogg 2 will be available for PS4 on August 15, developer Messhof has announced.

Although Messhof has previously said Nidhogg 2 is also coming to PC in "summer 2017," a specific date has not yet been revealed. It is...
Deflecting the course of an asteroid has always been a topic of discussion among the space scientists. After a well known study about the impact of asteroids, conducted under the mission named ‘Asteroid Impact and Deflection Assessment’, the news about NASA's new mission is spreading like wildfire. 'DART', NASA's new mission assisted by its Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO) will change the path...
Moon will rule over the month of July, and two meteor showers will visit us on a single day. August will have a solar eclipse. In this month, we will get to see all the moon's phases beginning on July 1st. The first quarter moon will rise at noon and set at midnight. Through binoculars one can see craters and some...
After a tense round of negotiations, G-20 nations on Saturday reached a compromise on climate change, the last remaining issue of contention at the summit. Every country except the United States declared that the Paris climate change agreement is 'irreversible' and must be implemented 'swiftly.' The U.S., on the other hand, declared its intention to pull out of the...
Climate change will sharply boost the frequency of lethal heatwaves even if humanity caps global warming at 2°C, the core goal of the Paris Agreement, scientists said on Monday. A heat wave is a prolonged period of excessively hot weather, which may be accompanied by high humidity, especially in oceanic climate countries. While definitions vary, a heat wave is measured...
With increase in the earth's temperature, all that one faces is hot year with a little shower. NASA's new study gets rid of this disappointment. The study suggests that the future may be rainier than expected. The new study, published under the title, "Tightening of Tropical Ascent and High Clouds Key to Precipitation Change in a Warmer Climate", in the...
This June, several celestial bodies will visit the sky. While some stay throughout the month, some may give a guest appearance. The ring planet and the giant one will visit the earth this month. For star gazers the best time to view both these planets together, will be a few hours after Saturn rises at sunset, and before Jupiter sets. Jupiter...
Recent research from NASA's Cassini mission has given a new insight on Enceladus, Saturn's icy, ocean-bearing moon. Researchers have found evidence that the moon's spin axis has reoriented. Examining the moon's features, the team showed that Enceladus appears to have tipped away from its original axis by about 55 degrees. This is more than halfway toward rolling completely onto its...
