What do you think are there aliens living on the cigar-shaped asteroid Oumuamua? To find out the astronomers in the outback of Western Australia used the Murchison Widefield Array telescope to eavesdrop on the rocky visitor. They found out “We found no such signals with non-terrestrial origins,” the researchers wrote in the paper. Scientists learned about the mysterious, reddish space rock last year when it was spotted by the Pan-STARRS1 telescope in Hawaii in October.
A Research team of Yale has detected a galaxy that has no dark matter. As you know dark matter is a type of matter that has not yet been directly observed, but is thought to form a fundamental part of the universe. The discovery has broad implications for astrophysics, the researchers said.
The Milky Way is a galaxy where the Earth lives. We can see thousands of stars from earth even with the naked eye, and a lot of stars by a telescope. But what do you think about? How many stars are there in the Milky Way? “It’s a surprisingly difficult question to answer. You can’t just sit around and count stars, generally, in a galaxy,” said David Kornreich, an assistant professor at Ithaca College in New York.
Tess Planet hunter is ready to launch next month on April 16. It is supposed to start up from Cape Canaveral, Florida. This planet hunter, a 700-pound spacecraft, is called the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). TESS will be on the lookout for planets that could support life, officials said Wednesday. TESS will be launched aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and is equipped with four wide-field cameras that will enable it to look for the majority of the night sky.
We are calling your attention to read about Supernova Mystery Explosion. Astronomer Ed Shaya was working in his office looking at data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope in 2012 when he noticed that something went wrong. The light from a galaxy had quickly brightened by 10 percent.
K2-229b is an exoplanet, which is very hot and metallic. The exoplanet’s density is similar to Mercury. An Earth-sized planet is located 339 million light years away. A global team of astronomers including the University of Warwick discovered the exoplanet.

But just a moment, we forgot about the very important fact; for this special occasion you need much money, or you should be at least millionaire to carry out this extraordinary phenomenon.
NASA’s Robonaut 2 which costs $2.5 million is the first humanoid ever to fly in space. Robonaut 2 was launched on STS-133 on February 24, 2011. NASA indicates “Robonauts are essential to NASA’s future as we go beyond low Earth orbit”, and Robonaut 2 will provide performance data about how a robot may work side-by-side with astronauts”. Robonaut is expected to come back at the end of this spring as early as May.
China’s first prototype station, Tiangong-1, is supposed to fall into Earth at some point between March 30 and April 6. An out-of-control Chinese space station with “highly toxic” chemicals on board may hit a number of major world cities. New York and parts of Europe are among the most likely targets. In accordance with researchers a number of highly populated cities including New York, Barcelona, Beijing, Chicago, Istanbul, Rome and Toronto could also be hit.
