Tokyo (AFP) – Scientists at Japan’s space agency have discovered a huge moon cave that could one day house a base that would shelter astronauts from dangerous radiation and wild temperature swings, officials said Thursday. Data taken from Japan’s SELENE lunar orbiter has confirmed the existence of the 50 kilometer (31 miles) long and 100 […]Read more "Cave on moon could house astronauts"
The moon likely had an ancient, temporary atmosphere — similar to the pocket of gases that surround Earth — around 3 to 4 billion years ago, according to a new study. Scientists at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) in Houston found that the atmosphere was caused by ancient […]Read more "The Moon Once Had an Atmosphere"
Thanks to an amplified image produced by a gravitational lens, and the Gran Telescopio CANARIAS, a team of scientists has discovered one of the brightest galaxies known from the epoch when the universe had 20 percent of its present age. Astronomers have discovered possibly the most luminous ‘new star’ ever — a nova discovered in […]Read more "Scientists spot one of the brightest New Stars Ever"
The aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between gaseous particles with charged particles. Variations in color are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common aurora color which is green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth.Read more "The Aurora"
