What If Other Planets Were as Close as the Moon?

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).

Scientists Reveal the Sound of Space That Is Really Terrifying

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.

Possible Signs of Water Found in WASP-127b Exoplanet

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.

Astronomers Discovered Thousands of Black Holes at the Center of Milky Way

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*.
