Exoplanet HR8799c

HR8799c Exoplanet Atmosphere contains Water Vapor

In the atmosphere of an alien planet HR8799c, which distance from the Earth is approximately 130 light years, the astronomers found vapor of water and carbon monoxide. The astronomers say that in the HR8799c planet, there is no methane, which is a gas that indicates life. The astronomical measurements, which the astronomers did during their observations, are the most precise measurements, which the astronomers have ever made outside of our solar system. Astronomers have founded over 1000 planets beyond our solar system since 1990. Among them the HR8799c is the huge planet. The mass of HR8799c, is approximately seven times more that the mass of Jupiter, which is the largest planet in our solar system. It circles a star with three other planets.

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.

Engineers Developed Ultra Thin Water Soluble Electronics

A team of research engineers from Tufts University, University of Illinois and Northwestern University have developed ultra-thin electronic devices that can dissolve in the body. As scientists say the new invention “Water Soluble electronics” can be widely used in medical applications. According to a study published in the journal «Science», the unit is fully “dissolve” after you have made all scheduled functions. The transient electronics are made of nanomembranes of silicon and magnesium oxide that are printed with circuitry much like a PCB, offering robust performance very similar to conventional electronics. Silicone is water-soluble but to prevent immediate disintegration, components are covered in silk.

Rorqual Whale

Rorqual Whales New Sensory Organ

A new sensory organ has been discovered in rorqual whales. Rorqual whales are a subgroup of baleen whales that includes blue, fin, minke, and humpback whales. They are known for their enormous size, and an accordion-like layer of blubber extending from their snout to their navel. This blubber can expand to many times its resting size, allowing massive quantities of prey-filled water to be swallowed and then expelled back out while filtering the prey.

Alien Super Earth Light

NASA’s infrared Spitzer Space Telescope spotted light from the alien planet 55 Cancri e, which orbits a star 41 light-years from Earth. A year on the extrasolar planet lasts just 18 hours. The planet 55 Cancri e was first discovered in 2004 and is not a habitable world. Instead, it is known as a super-Earth because of its size: The world is about twice the width of Earth and is super-dense, with about eight times the mass of Earth. But until now, scientists have never managed to detect the infrared light from the super-Earth world. Spitzer first detected infrared light from an alien planet in 2005.

Mars Rocks Life

Scientists suspect that beneath their rugged exterior, some Martian rocks could be hiding life. An examination of data gathered by NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity reveals deposits that, on Earth, are only created by water moving through the rock. Opportunity also turned up evidence of hot, moving water within the rocks, likely caused by the impact that scooped out the crater, Odyssey. Opportunity completed its original three-month mission on Mars eight years ago.

Origin of strange ravines in dunes on Mars

Red Planet Volcanic Glass May Be Hotspot for Life

The newly discovered glass dune fields, spread across almost a third of the planet Mars, likely formed from interactions between magma and ice, or water, interactions that could create the perfect environments for microbial life. The northern lowlands spread across millions of square miles in the Red Planet’s northern hemisphere. But dark sediments in the region have puzzled planetary scientists. Briony Horgan and James Bell, both of Arizona State University, used the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter to re-examine light radiated from the Martian plains.

Mexico Volcano Erupts

The world’s most dangerous volcano has erupted 70km (40 miles) from Mexico City, sending plumes of ash and water vapour into the sky. A heavy plume of ash covered the sky over Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano early Friday morning as glowing rock shot out from its crater. Webcam images on the site of the National Disaster Prevention Center showed the plume rising from the top of the 17,886-foot (5,450-meter) peak at dawn, though clouds obscured the volcano for people further away.

Cassini Spots New Images of Saturn Moon Enceladus

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft spots new images of Saturn’s moons Enceladus, Janus and Dione on March 27 and 28, 2012. The new photos reveal the plume of water ice and vapor that springs from the south pole of Enceladus, which is Saturn’s sixth largest moon,as well as the pockmarked surface of Dione and the tiny oblong shape of Janus. Cassini made a close flyby of Enceladus on March 27, swooping within about 46 miles (74 kilometers) of the moon’s surface.
