Well that was amazing! Never really thought about how wild rocket staging is until just now.
Everytime I hear or read about Mars, its either the NASA or Elon Musk that comes to my mind. What about Musk ? Musk isn't a scientist or an engineer. He's got a bachelor's in business-physics and access to a lot of money. He does not make intelligent or practical decisions. His enthusiasm for space … Continue reading Opinion: Space Race towards Mars is not Worth it
Travelling from Earth to the M87 Black Hole, then Flying into the Event Horizon (Space Engine) from r/spaceI recommend anyone that is into space and has a PC, downloads space engine from spaceengine.org. It's free and an absolutely amazing resource that simulates the entire observable universe.
A system of at least five exoplanets has been discovered by citizen scientists through a project called Exoplanet Explorers, part of the online platform Zooniverse, using data from NASA's Kepler space telescope. This is the first multi-planet system discovered entirely through crowdsourcing. A study describing the system has been accepted for publication in The Astronomical … Continue reading Multi-planet System Found Through Crowdsourcing
Image Credits; GawkerNASA is once again making the search for life on other planets a priority. According to Science News, Nasa is targeting Jupiter’s moon Europa, which is considered possibly habitable because of its subsurface ocean. The proposed mission could be operational in the next two decades. The lander will include instruments to assess surface chemistry … Continue reading Europa Lander Mission Announced

''It's not that we're going to find aliens, it's that our tech is going to find aliens, force them to either sign up for Facebook Basics Intergalactic or be … Continue reading Life on Exo Planets
Neutron stars are mind-boggling. Small in size, but their density (and so their mass and thus gravity) is amazing. All of the atoms have been squashed together so tightly that a teaspoon would weigh 100 million tons. Neutron stars are only a few kilometers wide, but have more mass than the sun. They also rotate … Continue reading Fact about Neutron Star
