This breathtaking new video illustrates why life on the International Space Station (ISS) is not suited to people who suffer from claustrophobia. Artemyev starts the route inside the Japanese storage module, which is in the furthest corner of the space station and finishes in the Russian part of the station. Artemyev is currently enjoying his third expedition to space, having reached the ISS travelling aboard the Soyuz MS-08 in April 2018. The International Space Station (ISS) is a $100 billion...
The idea of forming a "Space Force" as a branch of the military gets ridiculed in some circles, but for former Navy pilot and current NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, it’s abundantly clear that America’s enemies see space as a potentially devastating avenue of attack. His comments came during a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with KRMG from his office in Washington, D.C.[Hear the entire interview HERE, or use the embedded audio player below] "Our very way of life in this country is...
But space is also unfathomably large, so even that infinitesimally small amounts of gas can be detected by astronomers as they peer back into the depths of our galaxy. That’s because as light from stars and galaxies passes through the gas, certain wavelengths of light can get absorbed by even sparse material, a signal that astronomers here on Earth can detect. Back when the universe was still young—a mere one billion years old—this gas was more opaque than it is...
A United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket launches NASA's Parker Solar Probe on its epic sun-studying mission on Aug. 12, 2018, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The Parker Solar Probe, which launched early Sunday morning (Aug. 12) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, is notching flight milestones according to plan, NASA officials said today (Aug. 17). [NASA's Parker Solar Probe Mission to the Sun in Pictures]In addition, the probe has been using its thrusters to...
The Meteoroid Environment Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center says numerous people saw a very bright streak early Friday. A statement and video posted on Facebook says an analysis shows the meteor was first seen at an altitude of about 58 miles (93 kilometers) above rural Turkeytown, which is about 80 miles (129 kilometers) northeast of Birmingham. The office estimates a small asteroid about 6 feet (1.8 meters) in diameter then broke apart about 18 miles (29 kilometers) above...
Louisville's Sierra Nevada Corp., which has been selected by NASA to study the future of commercial human spaceflight in low-Earth orbit, also is developing the Dream Chaser to resupply the International Space Station. ( Jeremy Papasso / Staff Photographer )In an ongoing effort to foster commercial activity in space, NASA has selected 13 companies to study the future of commercial human spaceflight in low-Earth orbit, including long-range opportunities for the International Space Station.
Now a new evaluation of data from the exoplanet-hunting Kepler Space Telescope and the Gaia mission indicates that many of the known planets may contain as much as 50% water. "It was a huge surprise to realize that there must be so many water-worlds", said lead researcher Dr. Li Zeng (Harvard University),Scientists have found that many of the 4000 confirmed or candidate exoplanets discovered so far fall into two size categories: those with the planetary radius averaging around 1.5 that...
While in India, scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are getting ready to launch a satellite on the similar lines as the Solar Probe which will be catapulting the space scene of India into the global light. Where the Solar Probe by NASA aims to penetrate the suns atmosphere and collect data determining the energy flow of the outer corona in addition to the study of the magnetic fields generated by the solar winds, ISROs Aditya-L1 will study...
Recently, scientists pushed ALMA to its limits, harnessing the array's highest-frequency (shortest wavelength) capabilities, which peer into a part of the electromagnetic spectrum that straddles the line between infrared light and radio waves. Under ideal atmospheric conditions, which occurred on the evening of 5 April 2018, astronomers trained ALMA's highest-frequency, submillimeter vision on a curious region of the Cat's Paw Nebula (also known as NGC 6334I), a star-forming complex located about 4,300 light-years from Earth in the direction of the...
Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Tree ring analysis has helped scientists pinpoint the date of Thera's eruption. The volcano on the Greek island of Santorini erupted sometime during the 15th or 16th century BC, but scientists have previously been frustrated by discrepancies between radiocarbon and archaeological evidence of the ancient eruption's precise timing. The latest findings, analysis of carbon in tree rings traced to the time of the eruption, have revealed an agreement, or overlap, between the timelines offered by radiocarbon...
