NASA has announced that it will award the Distinguished Public Service Medal, its highest honor, to astronomer Yervant Terzian, the Tisch Distinguished Professor Emeritus. Professor…
Olympus Mons is the tallest planetary mountain or a very large shield volcano on the planet Mars. By one measure, it has a height of nearly 25 km (13.6 mi or 72,000 ft). Olympus is about two and a half times as tall as Mount Everest’s height above sea level. So it is considered as the second tallest mountain and the tallest planetary mountain in the Solar System.View More Meet Tallest Planetary Mountain “Olympus Mons” on Mars
NASA has released a new footage with Earth images, a headline of “Two Decades of Earth Data at Your Fingertips”. “Powerful Earth-observing instruments aboard NASA’s Terra and Aqua satellites, launched in 1999 and 2002, respectively, have observed nearly two decades of planetary change”.View More NASA Collected 20 Years of Earth Images In One Footage
New asteroid 2018 LA has been detected on June 2, which was “determined to be on a collision course with Earth, with impact just hours away.” The asteroid 2018 LA is supposed to be only 6 feet (2 meters) across, which is considered very small. The new asteroid was first found by the NASA-funded Catalina Sky Survey, that is situated near Tucson and operated by the University of Arizona.View More Asteroid 2018 LA Has Just Been Discovered by NASA
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.View More How Many Moons Does Our Planets Have in Our Solar System?
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.View More Scientists Reveal the Sound of Space That Is Really Terrifying
The first Earth Picture is very different from the last picture of Earth: the dissimilarities are really noticeable. The First Earth picture was taken on March 7, 1947. It was the time when a group of soldiers and scientists in the New Mexico desert saw something new and magnificent in these grainy black-and-white-photos: the first Earth picture. It is seen from height greater than 100 miles in space.View More We are Introducing You First Earth Picture in Comparison with Last Erath Picture
Planets in the Universe are countless that always need exploring. There are a lot of undiscovered objects in the Universe that it is not enough an entire life for humans to discover almost half of them. As indicated Stephen Hawking “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special”. As you know the known largest planet in our Solar System is Jupiter, it is approximately 143,000 kilometers (about 89,000 miles) wide at its equator. Let’s find out more about largest exoplanets in our wonderful Universe. These planets are the largest exoplanets ever discovered and it will probably take a long time until astronomers find a bigger one. Accordingly, we suggest you to enjoy top 10 largest exoplanets in the Universe.View More Top 10 Known Largest Exoplanets in The Universe
The NASA Mars InSight mission, which is set to launch on May 5, will try to gather as much data as possible about Earth’s neighbor in the solar system. InSight lander, which stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, will study mars quakes to know about the Martian crust, mantle and core.View More Why is it so important Landing InSight Mission to Mars?
There are millions of asteroids from which some of them is dangerous uniquely. A potentially hazardous object (PHO) is a near-Earth object with an orbit that has the potential to make exceptionally close approaches to the Earth. It is also of a size large enough to cause significant regional damage in the event of impact. Astronomers indicate that between 37,000 and 78,000 tons of solar system debris hit Earth each single year. Fortunately, they usually rain down in tiny pieces that burn up in the atmosphere. Now, we’d like to call you attention introducing top 10 dangerous asteroids.View More Top 10 the Most Dangerous Asteroids
