NASA Releases Stunning Image of Mars: Blue Dunes on the Red Planet – SciTechDaily

A sea of dark dunes, sculpted by the wind into long lines, surrounds Mars’ northern polar cap and covers an area as big as Texas. In this false-color image, areas with cooler temperatures are recorded in bluer tints, while warmer features are depicted in yellows and oranges. Thus, the dark, sun-warmed dunes glow with a golden color. […]

Scientists look at how some Yellowstone wolves avoid mange – East Idaho News

BILLINGS, Montana (AP) — After 25 years of inbreeding, Yellowstone National Park’s wolves are becoming more genetically similar, researchers have found. “They’re still a really healthy population,” said Alexandra DeCandia, who looked into wolf genetics for research she recently published. “It’s not anything we’re worried about.” In fact, genetic similarity can help Yellowstone’s wolves fight […]

Will an Asteroid Hit Earth in 2022?

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 […]

Quantum Teleportation Was Just Achieved With 90% Accuracy Over a 44km Distance

Scientists are edging closer to making a super-secure, super-fast quantum internet possible: they’ve now been able to ‘teleport’ high-fidelity quantum information over a total distance of 44 kilometres (27 miles). Both data fidelity and transfer distance are crucial when it comes to building a real, working quantum internet, and making progress in either of these […]

Dark Storm on Neptune Reverses Direction, Possibly Shedding a Fragment… Photo of the week

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 […]
