NASA’s Curiosity rover has discovered something new for the first time. The rover has been analyzed drilled samples on Mars in their labs more than a year. The Curiosity rover is part of the MSL mission (Mars Science Laboratory mission), and it was drilled its last planned rock sample in October 2016.
There is no secret that the Earth has only one natural satellite (our Moon), which is thought to have formed about 4.51 billion years ago, but how many moons are there in our Solar System? In the Solar System we have some planets that don’t have any other moon, but we have some planets that have approximately more than 53 moons such as Jupiter.
Have you ever thought about to see one of the 8 planets instead of Moon? In this creative video you can imagine how big the planets are in our Solar System. The Moon’s average orbital distance is 384,402 km (238,856 mi), or 1.28 light-seconds. This is about thirty times the diameter of Earth. The satellite’s apparent size in the sky is almost the same as that of the Sun (because it is 400x farther and larger).
The sound of space is truly strange. The sound of Earth! “It’s called chorus,” explains Craig Kletzing of the University of Iowa. “This is one of the clearest examples we’ve ever heard”. The Researcher explains the sound of Earth. “This is what the radiation belts would sound like to a human being if we had radio antennas for ears,” says Kletzing, whose team at the University of Iowa built the “EMFISIS” (Electric and Magnetic Field Instrument Suite and Integrated Science) receiver used to pick up the signals.
There are a lot of search related to the habitable exoplanets, and what about the habitable Exomoons. Scientists have recognized more than 100 giant exoplanets that may have potentially life-hosting moons. The new analysis could change the way scientists search for life in the cosmos, study team members said.
The scientists from the University of Cambridge and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) in Spain, observed the exoplanet WASP-127b using the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC). “A giant gaseous planet with partly clear skies and strong signatures of metals in its atmosphere” describes phys.org. The results have been acknowledged for publication in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.
In our website we are continuing our tops and today we will introduce top 10 largest galaxies in the Universe. There are roughly 200 billion galaxies in the Universe. A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter.
Astronomers announced the discovery of thousands of black holes last months, at the center of the Milky Way. The data was provided by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. “This black hole bounty consists of stellar-mass black holes” which are estimated to be five to 30 times the mass of our Sun. These new black holes were discovered within three light years of the supermassive black hole at our Galaxy’s center, called Sagittarius A*.
There are approximately 200 billion galaxies in the Universe, and in this article we are going to introduce you the largest galaxy. A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter.
