Scientists Discovered Salt Water On The Surface Of Europa

The scientists, who were observing the Jupter and its moons, discovered a salt water on the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. They suggests, that if someone can get to the moon through the all difficulties, and drink the water, the taste of water will be familiar. The Europa moon of Jupiter, overed with cracks and salt chemicals. The moon also has a gigantic ocean with frozen exterior. Because of this, the moon of Jupiter, is one of the most likely places to find life in our solar system outside of the Earth. In Hawaii the scientists used the telescope Keck, and mapped in the surface of Europa, an infrared wavelengths with 40 times greater resolutions, which they hadn’t obtained in the previous.

The Smallest Exoplanet Kepler 37b

Astronomers discovered a little exoplanet, which has less dimensions and weight, than the smallest planet Mercury in the solar system. The planet Kepler 37b moves around the star in Lira constellation every 13 days. It has 210 light years distance from the Earth. This planet is stone planet, and has approximately 427 Celsius temperature, because of that fact, there cannot go any speech about life.The moon-size Kepler 37b is so close to its parent star, at just 0.10 AU, that it likely has no atmosphere or liquid water on its surface.Kepler 37b was discovered by telescope “Kepler”. The $600 million Kepler mission launched in March 2009, and has found more than 2,740 candidate alien worlds so far.

View of Saturn From Cassini Spacecraft

View of Saturn From Cassini Spacecraft

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has delivered view of Saturn, taken while the spacecraft was in Saturn’s shadow. The cameras were turned toward Saturn and the sun so that the planet and rings are backlit. This special, very-high-phase viewing geometry lets scientists study ring and atmosphere phenomena not easily seen at a lower phase. Since images like this can only be taken while the sun is behind the planet, this beautiful view is all the more precious for its rarity. The last time Cassini captured a view like this was in Sept. 2006, when it captured a mosaic processed to look like natural color.

Habitable Exoplanets catalog

Habitable Exoplanets Catalog

Scientists published habitable exoplanets catalog to list all the known planets in the galaxy that could potentially be habitable to life. The count is at seven so far, with many more to come, researchers said. When it was first released last year, it had two potential habitable planets. According to lead researcher Abel Mendez director of the University of Puerto Rico the team expected to add maybe one or two more in the catalog’s first year. The addition of five suspected new planets was wholly beyond anyone’s expectations. Mendez also said scientists are getting smarter about finding exoplanets, and the pace of discovery is increasing. The team expects to add new models in the coming year, which will affect the measurements on objects already in the catalog.
