NASA to launch world’s first mission to Sun in 2018

NASA to launch world’s first mission to Sun in 2018 The spacecraft and instruments will be protected from the Sun’s heat by a 4.5-inch-thick carbon-composite shield and will solve many of the largest mysteries about our star, including finding out why the Sun’s corona is so much hotter than its surface. NASA is set to launch the world’s first mission to the Sun next year, that will explore our star’s atmosphere and answer questions about solar physics that have puzzled scientists for over six decades. The Parker Solar Probe has been…

Astronaut Gene Cernan left the last bootprint on the lunar surface 44 years and five months ago, and enthusiasm for another manned voyage became tepid in the decades that followed. Now, competing space agencies and companies are looking to the Moon with a fresh zeal, hoping…

We Are Living In A Hologram Designed By Aliens, Says NASA Scientist

We Are Living In A Hologram Designed By Aliens, Says NASA Scientist

We Are Living In A Hologram Designed By Aliens, Says NASA Scientist A NASA scientist suggests you are living inside a hologram created by advanced alien species. What if everything you have ever done or will do is simply the product of a highly-advanced computer code? Every relationship, every sentiment, every memory could have been generated by banks of supercomputers. This was the intriguing theory first proposed by Nick Bostrom, Professor in the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University and founding Director of the Future of Humanity Institute and of…

Killer Asteroids are Hitting Earth, but NASA has a Plan

Killer Asteroids are Hitting Earth, but NASA has a Plan

Killer Asteroids are Hitting Earth, but NASA has a Plan Scientists at NASA are closely monitoring an asteroid that could potentially reel towards Earth as it nears orbit. The incoming asteroid called Bennu would have catastrophic effects should it hit Earth, reports showed. NASA reported that the asteroid is just 85,000 light years away at its closest distance from Earth. Even at this distance, it would mean that it is 53,000 miles closer than the distance between Earth and Moon. Asteroid Bennu Its low density is indicative that it is mainly…

NASA investigates sending a lander to Europa to look for life

NASA investigates sending a lander to Europa to look for life investigates : NASA has taken one small step closer to possibly sending a robotic landing craft to Europa, a moon that orbits Jupiter that is a candidate for hosting alien life. The space agency calls Europa “one of the highest priority targets in the search for present-day life beyond Earth.” That’s because scientists think it has a huge ocean beneath its surface— so big, in fact, that it could have twice the amount of water as all of the…
