Satellite Shows a Winter Storm “Bomb Cyclone” from Space

The storm is called a “Bomb Cyclone”, it is called “Bomb Cyclone” because it is a nod to the process “bombogenesis” that forms it. Bombogenesis occurs when the storm’s central low pressure plunges by at least 24 millibars: an atmospheric pressure measurement in 24 hours, indicates the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A fabulous video from space shows a winter storm: slamming into the northeast United States.

China’s Big Spacecraft May Fall into Earth this Month

The European Space Agency (ESA) has reported a new re-entry forecast for China’s Tiangong-1 space lab. It is supposed that the 8,5-ton spacecraft may fall into Earth’s atmosphere between March 24 and April 19, although European Space Agency officials stressed that this is a rough estimate. “Re-entry will take place anywhere between 43 degrees north and 43 degrees south such as Spain, France, Portugal, Greece, etc.

Stephen Hawking Gives Definition What Happened Before the Big Bang

The Big Bang theory is the mysterious question that had been actual before and will be actual in future until the scientists find out the real and precise definition. It is the leading explanation about how the universe began. It is supposed to say the universe as we know started with a small singularity, then inflated over the next 13.8 billion years to the cosmos that we know today. By the way, let’s pass on the deeper question “But what happened before the Big Bang?”. The famous physicist Stephen Hawking gives a definition to this question, which he gave in an interview with his colleague scientist, Neil de Grasse Tyson.

A Star Passes Black Hole: At last Scientists Have Chance Testing Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity

Scientist were waiting to this special moment about many years. Continuously for several months astronomers are planning to focus on their telescopes to Sagittarius A*, the Supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. A Star is cycling by closely orbiting star, which is probably considering that it is testing Einstein’s theory of general relativity. S-02 Star, which is the name of this star, closely orbits Sagittarius A*. However, S-02 is unique because it is one of the two stars that zoom in the closest to the supermassive black hole in its elliptical orbit, that is to say it is likely to show the effects and results of black hole’s enormous gravitational pull.

Signal from the First Stars in the Universe

For the first time Scientists detected a signal from stars emerging in the early universe. Researchers discovered that ancient suns were active within 180 million years of the Big Bang with the help of a radio antenna. Astronomers from prestigious institutes made a disclosure with their Experiment to Detect the Global EoR (Epoch of Reionization) Signature (EDGES) project. The head of the investigator on the project Judd Bowman said “Finding this miniscule signal has opened a new window on the early universe”, and added that telescopes could not far enough to directly image such ancient stars, but they had seen when they turned on in radio waves arriving from space.

Amateur Astronomer Victor Buso Managed to Catch a Supernova on Camera

This accession has happened very accidently. Amateur Astronomer Victor Buso managed to catch a Supernova on his Camera on September 20, 2016. In Rosario, Argentina he was checking out the new camera on his telescope by taking pictures of a nearby galaxy when a star within it went off in a supernova explosion. “Professional astronomers have long been searching for such an event, said UC Berkeley astronomy professor Alex Filippenko. “It’s like winning the cosmic lottery.” Víctor Buso managed to catch the supernova from his rooftop observatory. Buso’s images are the first to capture the brief “shock breakout” phase of a supernova.

United States going to build Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway costing 2.7B$

The Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway was one of several projects funded in President Donald Trump’s $19.9 billion NASA budget proposal for 2019. It would work similarly to the International Space Station. The lunar platform will orbit the moon not the Earth. It is going to finish by 2023. Robert Lightfoot, NASA’s acting administrator, said “The platform would “help us further explore the moon and its resources and translate that experience toward human missions to Mars”. The power and propulsion element is going to lunch in 2022. This element would use solar electric propulsion to keep the gateway in the appropriate position in space. It also would provide space  to Earth, space to lunar and spacecraft to spacecraft communications, as well as support communication for spacewalks. Lasers would be transferred according to a Feb. 13 NASA web post.

Giant Magellan Telescope which costs about $1 billion

The Giant Magellan Telescope Organization is going to build giant Telescope ever with a mirror. It will be completed in 2025. When it is completed, it will be the largest telescope in the world. It will comprise of seven 8.4m diameter the main segments. The Giant Magellan Telescope will be 10 times more powerful than Hubble Space Telescope.  This can allow astronomers to study the space deeper.

NASA’s exoplanet-hunting space telescope has arrived two months ahead of its planned launch

NASA’s exoplanet-hunting space telescope has arrived two months ahead of its planned launch. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) was delivered via truck to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) on Monday (Feb. 12), agency officials said. The spacecraft made the journey from the Dulles, Virginia, facilities of the aerospace company Orbital ATK, which had spent the last year building and testing TESS. TESS is scheduled to lift off atop a Space X Falcon 9 rocket no earlier than April 16 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, which is next door to KSC.
