The moon arose differently than we thought so far? There are new studies

The moon is usually considered the part torn from our planet as a result of a collision with some large object. However, there are other hypotheses. A new study found that its craters have more iron and titanium than expected. The moon may be a fragment of the Earth formed as a result of a […]

Estimated how many people are needed to create a functioning colony on Mars

Mars is a planet that humanity is likely to colonize someday. It is only a matter of time. However, how many people need all this to make sense? Professor Jean-Marc Salotti decided to look for the answer to this question. He managed to calculate the minimum colonizers needed for this project. Salotti, a professor at […]

Want to help train your rover?

If you once dreamed of analyzing stones on Mars, then with the help of an interesting NASA project you can now find a replacement for such emotions. Available in a browser, the AI4Mars app allows you to travel the Red Planet aboard the Curiosity rover to explore the surroundings. The simulation was prepared by NASA's […]

China and United Arab Emirates to launch their own Martian missions

China and the United Arab Emirates plan to launch Martian missions later this year. This year, China plans to send the Tianwen-1 orbiter, lander and Mars rover to the Red Planet, while the United Arab Emirates intends to send an orbiter built in collaboration with three universities in the United States. This summer is special […]

Astronomers have discovered a planet three times superior to Jupiter

Each of the planetary systems has its own “king." In our solar system, this “king” is Jupiter, the gas giant named after one of the most influential gods of the Greek pantheon. The mass of Jupiter is twice the mass of Saturn, and the mass of the Earth is 300 times, and each movement of […]

A planet similar to Earth has been discovered. At first she was overlooked. The culprit is found and this is .. not a man

Scientists have discovered a new exoplanet that can be in the ecosphere, that is, in the space around the star, which allows the formation of life. Interestingly, the Kepler-1649c planet was initially overlooked. Despite the fact that the Kepler space telescope has already served its purpose, the data collected by him is still analyzed by […]

WASP-76b – a planet with a temperature of 2400 degrees and where it rains from molten metal

Astronomers have discovered a very "inhospitable" planet called WASP-76b. The surface of this planet receives energy, the amount of which is a thousand times the amount of solar energy falling on the surface of the Earth, and this creates a temperature on the surface of the "solar" side of WASP-76b to evaporate metals, which later […]

New Horizons spacecraft found answers to some questions regarding planet formation

Last January, the spacecraft of the New Horizons research mission made a close flight past the Kuiper belt object called Arrokoth (Arrokoth or (486958) 2014 MU69). This object is a typical planetesimal (planetesimal), remaining in this "underdeveloped" form since the formation of the solar system. And the data collected by the New Horizons apparatus on […]

TESS Space Telescope Discovers First Earth-Like Planet in Living Area

Since its launch in April 2018, the TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) space telescope has already managed to bring many discoveries and achievements to its account. This includes the discovery of the first exoplanet, comparable in size to the Earth, a full review of the southern hemisphere of the night sky, observation of a comet […]

Scientists: Mars is losing water faster than we thought

Mars is a barren planet, but researchers claim that once there was a lot of water on its surface. New studies show that large amounts of water penetrate the higher parts of the atmosphere in the form of steam. Scientists have observed on the Red Planet the effect of glut, which is associated with a […]
