kiss your family hug them NASA, other space agencies, astronomers and even hobbyists spend a lot of time on searching the sky for these so-called near Earth objects (NEOs). They try to deduce their orbit as accurately as possible. Astronomers then rank the objects by impact probability and put them onto a list. You can […]Read More Will an Asteroid Hit Earth in 2022?
Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope watched a mysterious dark vortex on Neptune abruptly steer away from a likely death on the giant blue planet. The storm, which is wider than the Atlantic Ocean, was born in the planet’s northern hemisphere and discovered by Hubble in 2018. Observations a year later showed that it began drifting […]Read More Dark Storm on Neptune Reverses Direction, Possibly Shedding a Fragment… Photo of the week
A “new normal” is settling over the Arctic, experts warned yesterday. Temperatures are rising, ice is melting, snow is disappearing and the region’s delicate ecosystems are rapidly evolving. It’s already not the same place it was a few decades ago, and it won’t be the same place a few more decades into the future. That’s […]Read More Three Signs a ‘New Arctic’ Is Emerging – Scientific American
While experts are certain they got to the nest before many queens left to start new colonies, they know there are more nests out there. https://www.king5.com/article/tech/science/environment/nearly-200-queens-found-in-asian-giant-hornet-nest-removed-in-whatcom-county/281-2de08cca-4247-49af-a4b0-b5dfc0823867Read More Nearly 200 queens found in Asian giant hornet nest removed in Whatcom County | king5.com
If we discovered evidence of alien life, would we even realize it? Life on other planets could be so different from what we’re used to that we might not recognize any biological signatures that it produces. Recent years have seen changes to our theories about what counts as a biosignature and which planets might be habitable, and further turnarounds are […]Read More Alien life Is Out There. But Our Theories Are Steering Us Away from It. | Live Science
“Aurora, Meet Airglow” Two of Earth’s most colorful upper atmospheric phenomena, aurora and airglow, met just before dawn in this photo shot by an astronaut on the International Space Station (ISS). Wavy green, red-topped wisps of aurora borealis appear to intersect the muted red-yellow band of airglow as the ISS passed just south of the Alaskan Peninsula. […]Read More Aurora, Meet Airglow
Scientists are now trying to figure out if a grapefruit-sized blackhole actually lurks at the fringes of our outer solar system. In the last few years, researchers have noticed an odd clustering of multiple trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs), which are found in the far outer solar system… MORE ABOUT THIS ARTICLE IN THE LINK BELOW… https://www.firstpost.com/tech/science/black-hole-the-size-of-a-grapefruit-could-be-planet-x-is-lurking-in-the-outer-edges-of-the-solar-system-8594001.htmlRead More Black hole the size of a grapefruit lurking at the edges of our solar system ‘could be Planet X’- Technology News, Firstpost
It can be easy to lose sight of how majestic the Earth truly is, as political and social strife, disease, war, famine, and other human-made issues – as well as natural disasters – have a way of making us take the planet for granted. However, when seen through another perspective…Read More Earth Can Seem Like a Massive, Boring Mess…
