NASA InSight Lander Will Study Marsquakes on the Surface of Mars

NASA plans to send the first Robotic InSight lander that will explore the Red’s planet’s subsurface. InSight is a robotic Mars lander designed to explore the interior and subsurface of Mars. InSight lander is going to launch from the California coast to the surface of Mars on May 5, 2018. In addition, it is the first time launching to another planet from the West Coast. InSight lander, which stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, will study marsquakes to know about the Martian crust, mantle and core.

What are the Planned Objectives of NASA Exploration Campaign?

The NASA Exploration Campaign is a national and agency effort concentrates on three essential fields such as low Earth orbit; lunar orbit and surface; and Mars and other deep space objectives. President Donald J. Trump gave NASA a new direction in December 17, telling the agency to work with international and commercial partners to refocus exploration efforts on the moon, with an eye to eventually going on to Mars and even beyond NASA stated.

Snapchat Updated its New Features Creating 7 New Templates

Snapchat updated Lens Studio with a new feature that will allow users to create artists build face filters. If you like to take selfies especially using Snapchat, then this new feature will probably interest you.
The company mentioned that during two months, artists had submitted 30,000 of these lenses. Now, it is adding new features to build up its community of AR developers and, attract and keet users.

Yellowstone Eruption May Help Scientists Guess the Future

New Study shows the mechanics and movements beneath the surface that contribute to Yellowstone eruption. Yellowstone eruption is special and important, because it can end up allowing for the creation of systems that will help scientists guess future events. “While Yellowstone eruptions currently don’t pose a significant threat, there are volcanoes around the world that could potentially cause a significant amount of damage if we aren’t able to prepare for them. By using this new knowledge to develop novel new prediction techniques, we may be able to better equip at-risk areas with the knowledge and infrastructure they need to prepare for volcanic eruptions” mentioned valuewalk.

SpaceX Plans to Build BFR Big Falcon Rocket in Los Angeles

SpaceX is going to build its BFR (Big Falcon Rocket) spaceship with a new capacity in Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti declared on April 16. SpaceX’s founder and CEO, Elon Musk, has claimed that the BFR may also send humans to the moon, launch satellites to low Earth orbit, clean up orbital debris and move passengers around Earth at record speeds. Space.com mentioned “The company plans to use this ambitious new vessel, whose acronym name stands for “Big Falcon Rocket” (or a less-family-friendly version of that name) to send people to Mars by 2024 and set up a colony on the Red Planet within the next 50 to 100 years.”

Lyrid Meteor Shower is Finally here; Don’t Miss the Shooting Stars

The annual Lyrid meteor shower is starting. Every year it is realized about April 16 to 25. And this year it is going to fall on the morning of April 22 “with little or no interference from the waxing moon” as mentioned Earthsky. It is supposed to fall the greatest number of meteors during the few hours before dawn. You have an opportunity to see from about 10 to 2o Lyrid meteors an hour at the shower’s peak on the morning of April 22. In 2018, the waxing moon will set before the primetime morning hours. Earthsky indicated “In 1982, American observers did see an outburst of nearly 100 Lyrid meteors per hour.

Why NASA Wants to Send Marsbee Robotic Bees to Mars?

Marsbee is a robotic flapping wing flyers. Its size is as the same as bumblebee size with cicada sized wings. The Marsbee is combined with sensors and wireless communication devices.  The mobile base can act as a recharging station and main communication center. Why NASA wants to send Marsbee to the Red Planet. NASA explains:

“The objective of the proposed work is to increase the set of possible exploration and science missions on Mars by investigating the feasibility of flapping wing aerospace architectures in a Martian environment. The proposed architecture consists of a Mars rover that serves as a mobile base and a swarm of Marsbees.”

10 Advantages to use Sony Digital Paper Tablet

Sony has launched its the smallest version Digital Paper called the DPT-CP1, which is the same size as an A5 paper. The tablet includes 16GB of storage, and it is only 5.9mm thick. Battery life is rated at a month. Sony suggests you Digital Paper that combines the simplicity of reading and writing on real paper with the convenience of digital features, including easy sharing across devices, searchable documents, and secure document encryption. The DPT-RP1 is already available, but the smaller DPT-CP1 is planned to launch in June.
