Space.com claims “NASA’s Kepler space telescope, which has discovered more than 2,650 alien planets to date, emerged from yet another slumber Thursday (Oct. 11), agency officials said”.View More NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope Wakes Up Again
One of the most famous telescopes NASA Hubble has captured impressive images of Saturn’s extraordinary aurora. Space scientist using the ESA Hubble Space telescope took a series of shots using ultraviolet light, resulting in composites that show a wider range of light than humans can see with the naked eye.View More Watch Incredible View of Saturn Extraordinary Aurora

According to space.com “When the sun shield deploys upon Webb’s arrival at its deep-space destination — a gravitationally stable spot about 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometers) from Earth — the shield will be about the size of a tennis court, mission team members have said”.View More How Big Is the Most Ambitious James Webb Space Telescope?
Rare asteroid 2017 YE5 (each about 3,000 feet (900 meters) in size, orbiting each other) was discovered by new observations by three of the world ‘s largest radio telescopes. Near-Earth asteroid 2017 YE5 was discovered with observations provided by the Cadi Ayyad University Morocco Oukaimeden Sky Survey on December 21, 2017.View More New Observations About Rare Asteroid 2017 YE5
NASA has discovered a possible volcano on Jupiter Io Moon. The data has been collected by NASA’s Juno spacecraft and the spacecraft has used its Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument. The x-ray data were collected on Dec. 16, 2017, when Juno was about 470,000 kilometers away from the moon.View More Juno Spacecraft Discovers Volcano on Jupiter Moon Io NASA Reported
A new study has found out that the Superstar Eta Carinae, most luminous and massive stellar system, may reach Earth as cosmic rays. To discover it, astronomers used the data from NASA’s NuSTAR space telescope. “We know the blast waves of exploded stars can accelerate cosmic ray particles to speeds comparable to that of light, an incredible energy boost,” said Kenji Hamaguchi, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the lead author of the study.View More Most Luminous Superstar Eta Carinae Reaches Earth as Cosmic Rays
NASA has determined a new launch date for James Webb Telescope; March 30, 2021. The agency previously had estimated an earlier launch date. “Webb should continue based on its extraordinary scientific potential and critical role in maintaining U.S. leadership in astronomy and astrophysics,” said Tom Young, the chair of the review board. “Ensuring every element of Webb functions properly before it gets to space is critical to its success.”View More When Most Ambitious and Complex James Webb Telescope Will Launch?
The Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) is an astronomical observatory and the world’s largest optical/near-infrared extremely large telescope which is under the construction. It is located on top of Cerro Armazones in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. Originally called the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), the name of the ELT was changed in 2017. Its new name, the Extremely Large Telescope, reflects the growing number of the European Southern Observatory (ESO)’s international partners and the instrument’s location in Chile.View More Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) gathers 13 times more light than other Telescopes
