ESA: A man-made base on the moon may turn into reality by 2030

ESA: A man-made base on the moon may turn into reality by 2030

The European Space Agency (ESA) said a man-made base on the moon is likely to become a reality by 2030. News.com.au reported that ESA chiefs said that the planned Moon Village, which would be created using 3D printers, may help mankind in the galaxy exploration

They added that as per their plans, robots will land on the moon and make the surface ready for human life and come all set with a series of amazing concepts that show how the moon base might look like.

SpaceX Succeeds In Landing Its Falcon 9 Upright

SpaceX Succeeds In Landing Its Falcon 9 Upright

SpaceX’s unmanned rocket Falcon 9 successfully landed upright at Florida's Cape Canaveral at about 7:40 p.m. central time after a 10-minute of flight. The falcon 9 landed upright after sending 11 satellites into the orbit.

The Post even published articles about the historic landing of the Falcon 9 rocket for two consecutive days. SpaceX’s rival company Blue Origin, a space start-up founded by Amazon.com chief executive Jeff Bezos, was successful in making a similar return rocket landing test last month.

New Autocorrelation Function Timescale Technique can Help Measure Gravitational Pull on Distant Stars

New Autocorrelation Function Timescale Technique can Help Measure Gravitational Pull on Distant Stars

As a new step towards finding the fact whether the planets revolving around in the universe are capable of supporting life or not, scientists have been able to found a new way to measure gravitational pull of distant stars. The new technique, dubbed as the autocorrelation function timescale technique, would have implications in findings habitable planets beyond our solar system. Measuring surface gravity means to determine how much weight a person carries on a star and it varies from star to star.

Aurora is Visible throughout Canada and Alaska This New Year

Aurora is Visible throughout Canada and Alaska This New Year

The sun on December 28 emitted a big burst of gas and magnetic field called a coronal mass ejection. And scientists predicted that the stellar bump after hitting earth will result in the Aurora borealis commonly known as the Northern Lights.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) also issued warning that a strong geomagnetic storm of a level G3 will hit earth, due to a strong coronal mass ejection on the sun on Monday.

Terrifyingly lifelike ‘social robot’ that looks and acts like its owner could one day work in your office

Terrifyingly lifelike ‘social robot’ that looks and acts like its owner could one day work in your office

Here is a terrifyingly lifelike ‘social robot’ named Nadine that has an outlook like human and behaves like its owner. It could one day work in your office. It has caused a lot of stir while sitting behind as a receptionist at the welcome desk at a Singapore university. With mousy, shoulder-length hair neatly parted to the side, she almost exactly looks like human being.

Astronomers develop new technique for gravity calculation for distant stars

Astronomers develop new technique for gravity calculation for distant stars

Calculation of gravitational pull at surface of distant stars isn’t an easy task and there is a chance for high degree of error. Astronomers from Universities in Canada, Austria, France and Germany have worked on a collaborative project to develop a new technique for estimating gravity at distant stars. The gravitational pull is an important factor in ascertaining the possibility of life on planets orbiting a specific star. The new technique for calculating gravity has been termed as autocorrelation function timescale technique.

Manned Mars Mission: NASA Designing Systems to Take Humans to Deep Space

Manned Mars Mission: NASA Designing Systems to Take Humans to Deep Space

About one-and-half decade from today, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) may send astronauts to Mars. Now, the space agency of the United States has revealed that it is currently designing systems to take astronauts to the Red Planet and further into the solar system that humans have ever been before.

Pre-Dawn Sky to Welcome Comet Catalina

Pre-Dawn Sky to Welcome Comet Catalina

The inner part of our solar system has been visited by Comet Catalina for the first time, as reported by NASA. The comet, officially known as C/2013 US10, will be visible in the sky before the dawn of January 1, 2016. The comet, which was found on October 31, 2013, will return to the outer space permanently after its short visibility in sky. The comet was named after the Catalina Sky Survey, funded by NASA, at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

Two Galaxies’ Merger Captured By Hubble

Two Galaxies’ Merger Captured By Hubble

The Hubble telescope of NASA has sent an image that captures the merger of two galaxies, which are about 230 million light-years away from Earth. The Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 aboard NASA/ ESA Hubble Space Telescope acquired the picture of the iconic merger. Initially, the image was being considered a galaxy with unusual shape. However, it was later realized it is a live merger of two galaxies in the constellation of Hercules.

Powerful Solar Storm could lead to Aurora Borealis on New Year Eve

A ‘strong’ solar storm on New Year’s Eve would let people at certain locations enjoy aurora borealis (the Northern Lights), according to Space Weather Prediction Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. People in Illinois and Oregon could also witness the Northern Lights as the powerful solar storm will impact our planet.
