Cassini's Grand Finale findings puzzles several scientists. The narrow gap region between Saturn and its rings, appears to be dust-free. The relatively dust-free gap has broken down the basic assumption. The assumption of a dustier environment in the gap lead to the spacecraft's saucer-shaped main antenna. Cassini team created it to act as a shield during most future dives through the...
India on Friday successfully launched its heaviest rocket, the Geo-Synchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) for the eleventh time.The South Asia Satellite (SAS), fully funded by the Indian Government and touted as an “invaluable gift” to its South Asian neighbours, which will provide communication and disaster support to the nations. The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-F09 (GSLV-F09) on Friday successfully launched India's...
Did you hear the stories about the human species existence on the Earth or the end of a mundane era? Maybe yes. Recently a well-known British astrophysicist, Stephen Hawking have made similar stories or predictions in his new documentary “Expedition New Earth” which is part of the BBC’s new science season “Tomorrow’s World” that was originally shown on the...
India embarks on space diplomacy like never before. For the first time, New Delhi is flexing its prowess of space technology by embarking on an unprecedented and un-chartered "stratospheric diplomacy" through a special Rs. 450 crore gift for south Asians. India is carving a very unique place in the universe, this week New Delhi will 'gift' a heavyweight bird in...
According to new research, people who had surgery to cut the main nerve connecting the brain with the stomach, a longstanding treatment for ulcers, had a trend of a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease (PD). Published in the April 26 online edition of Neurology, this result adds weight to the hypothesis that PD may begin in the gut...
Cassini has always kept the space and astronomy world busy by exploring the unexplored parts of Saturn. The space craft will soon end its voyage. NASA's Cassini spacecraft will make its first dive through the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings on April 26, 2017. The gap, unexplored so far, poses a great challenge to the spacecraft and the...
Research led by scientists at the University of Birmingham has revealed a new cause of high blood pressure which could lead to major changes in managing the disease. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, often goes unnoticed but if left untreated can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Studies estimate that one in four adults suffer from hypertension,...
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft faces one last critical and risky adventure around Saturn. Cassini swings past Saturn's mega moon Titan early Saturday for a gravity-assisted, orbit-tweaking nudge. Cassini’s fuel tank is practically empty, so with little left to lose, NASA has opted for a risky, but science-rich grand finale. “That last kiss goodbye,” as project manager Earl Maize calls it, will push Cassini...
A team of scientists at NASA have blended the essence of fashion and engineering to produce a new fabric for use in space. These fabrics can be used for antennas and other deployable devices. This fabric material is foldable and changes its shape quickly. They can also help shield a spacecraft from meteorites. Other uses of this fabric include, astronaut...
On April 19, a relatively large near-Earth asteroid will fly past safely. Scientists have made it clear that there is no possibility for it to collide with our planet. The asteroid, 2014 JO25, discovered in May 2014, will fly past at a distance on 1.8 million kilometers. This is approximately 4.6 times the distance between Earth and the moon. Anyhow,...
