NASA Hammer Spacecraft Will Save the World From the Asteroid

NASA Hammer spacecraft is going to save  our lives. Asteroid Bennu has a 1 in 2,700 chance of hitting Earth the 21th of September in 2135. But don’t worry NASA has a plan to destroy it using nuclear bombs before it reaches here. The chances of Bennu actually making contact with Earth is highly unlikely, but the US government wants to make sure that this threat is neutralized. Bennu is currently about 54 million miles from Earth and orbits Sun.

Space Radiation May Be More Dangerous for Astronaut Than We Imagine

Space Radiation May Be More Dangerous for Astronaut Than We Imagine

University of New Hampshire researchers have recently claimed that there is as a minimum 30 percent more dangerous Space radiation in our solar system than we have imagined before, which may cause a danger for both humans and satellites who venture there. According to the Researchers astronauts may obtain different kinds of space radiation sickness or maybe more serious long-term health effects, including cancer and damage to the heart, brain, and central nervous system indicated Nathan Schwadron, a space plasma physics professor at UNH and lead author of the study.

Airbus Is Creating a Space Harpoon to Capture Space Junk

Airbus Is Creating a Space Harpoon to Capture Space Junk

There are a lot of pieces of space junk orbiting the Earth that all pose risks to satellites and spacecraft. In order to remove space junk from outer space European company Airbus is creating a gigantic “space harpoon” that is high-tech and efficient. The one-meter-long harpoon will be attached to spacecraft which will target a peace of space junk and capture it. This will be quickly and efficiently.

New Horizons Has a New Name Ultima Thule

NASA Chooses a Name Ultima Thule for New Horizons’ Next Celestial Target

New Horizons is an interplanetary space probe that was launched as a part of NASA’s New Frontiers program. It is the first mission in NASA’s New Frontiers mission category, larger and more expensive than the Discovery missions. The spacecraft has already visited Pluto, the farthest world any mission has ever been to, and it will explore another celestial body on January 1, 2019. The team named it “Ultima Thule” [pronounced ultima thoo-lee”] for the Kuiper Belt object the New Horizons spacecraft which will launch at the first of January 2019.

NASA Inviting You Journey to the Sun with Parker Solar Probe

NASA Inviting You Journey to the Sun with Parker Solar Probe

NASA is inviting you from all over the world to submit your names online to be placed on a microchip aboard NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission which will launch in summer 2018. This was the first time a NASA spacecraft was named after a living person, honoring physicist Eugene Parker. At closest approach, Parker Solar Probe will be touching around the sun at approximately 450,000 miles per hour. That is fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in one second. The mission will travel through the Sun’s atmosphere, facing brutal heat and radiation conditions and your name will go along for the ride.

New Discoveries about Jupiter Internal Structure

New Discoveries about Jupiter Internal Structure

NASA’s Juno probe has been discovering more about Jupiter Internal Structure than ever before. It is about its internal structure. The $1.1 billion spacecraft, which arrived in orbit around Jupiter in 2016, has been studying variations in the gas giant’s gravitational pull. The probe’s latest discoveries point out that Jupiter’s wind-sculpted bands extend down over 3,000km. That’s on a planet which is 140,000km wide. “This solves a long-time mystery,” said Juno scientist Tristan Guillot. According to him that was all really important for understanding atmospheric dynamics, not just on Jupiter but on other gaseous planets like Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and also the exoplanets they were at that moment discovering.

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.

3 Space Station Crewmembers Came Back to Earth

The Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft parachutes down to Earth on April 10, 2017 with 3 members of Expedition 50 on beard. On Tuesday February 27, 3 Expedition 54 crewmembers came back from the International Space Station in the Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft. They came back to Earth yesterday after spending 168 days abroad the International Space Station(ISS). NASA astronauts Joe Acaba and Mark Vande Hei and Russian cosmonaut departed the ISS at 6:00.

Liquid water on the Moon

New moon rover for finding the liquid water on the Moon

NASA develops a moon rover for search and analysis water and other materials taken in a trap of ices on poles of the Moon and demonstration of how water can be made on a place. Flight is planned for November 2017, mission received the name Regolith and Environment Science and Oxygen and Lunar Volatile Extraction (RESOLVE) and will have a week for achievement of the purposes. To be enclosed the squeezed budget of $250 million (into the sum includes the rocket to the Moon) the project managers plan to use solar energy for a food of systems of a moon rover and scientific tools. However in places, where there can be water and other flying substances, the sunlight appears time in some days. For the value of this mission, it is necessary to use nuclear power. According to the scientists the solar batteries of mission are more available and such way they will try to go. It gives the scientist the long list of affairs and very a short time.
