For star-gazers around the world, this month will be a small, but a great treat. Our giant relative will put on a good show throughout the month. One can view Jupiter all night long. On April 7, it reaches opposition. It will shine the brightest and will appear larger than usual. The solar system is lined up so that Jupiter,...
A big treat awaits for comet hunters as comet 41P visits after a very long time. On April 1, 2017, comet 41P will pass closer than it normally does to Earth. For observers with binoculars its a special viewing opportunity. Observers can see it near the constellations Draco and Ursa Major. In 1973, the comet put on a spectacular show. The comet, if experiences...
NASA selected five members for the next expeditions. The future expeditions will have Joe Acaba, Ricky Arnold, Nick Hague, Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Shannon Walker on board. All the five members have started training for the missions. Acaba will be the first to launch, assigned to the Expedition 53 and 54 crews. This already includes Mark Vande Hei of NASA, and also Alexander...
Expedition 50 Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson is set to go on her eighth spacewalk Thursday morning and surpass astronaut Suni Williams record for the most spacewalks by a female astronaut. Astronaut Peggy Whitson, 56, holds a doctorate in biochemistry. She is America’s most experienced female astronaut, veteran of two long-duration stays aboard the station in 2002 and 2007-08 totaling nearly 377...
Scientists at NASA have built a stopwatch timer that can measure a fraction of a billionth of a second, which can help to obtain precise height measurements of the Earth’s surfaces including ice, glaciers, forests, and sea. Thanks to its incredibly precise time measurement, the timer enables scientists to calculate the distance between a satellite and the Earth, based on...
One of the major problems in this hi-tech world is the speed of the internet. It is slows down or shuts down. NASA has come up with a possible solution. NASA has decided to launch a space LASER that will provide internet 100 times faster than current broadband. If possible, this dream will come true within two years. A powerful laser will...
The evolution of clock surprises everyone. Especially, the atomic clock, which is an extremely accurate type of clock. Atomic vibrations regulate it and is known for the exact time. NASA has now prepared a next-generation atomic clock. The space agency developed it in early February. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory developed this Deep Space Atomic Clock. On Feb. 17, JPL engineers monitored integration...
Celestial bodies are recognized as planets, based on several criteria. The scientists demoted Pluto to a dwarf planet in 2006 when the definition of a planet changed. Since then, there are only 8 planets in our solar system. Recently, a group of scientists have proposed a new way to classify planets. This will possibly add about 100 objects into the...
NASA always advances itself every single day. Also, each day, its efforts to explore the space, doubles. In one such effort to advance basic and applied research for lunar and planetary science NASA has created the SSERVI. Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), created to advance human exploration of the solar system through scientific discovery, is NASA's major step towards space...
NASA now has a few high school students who will be a part of a major program. Students at an Alabama high school are now making parts for use on the International Space Station. NASA has been sponsoring programs to build the spark in students in the field of aerospace industry for more than 50 years. One of them is HUNCH...
