In my previous story, I wrote about a low mass star called a Red Dwarf Star. In their, I mentioned a few crucial things that are needed to understand this article. Here they are briefly:
Look at the night sky. What do you see? If the weather is suitable, you would see numerous stars illuminating the sky and a moon! But has it ever questioned you how these stars are created?
Recently NASA launched the Perseverance rover to mars which exploring and gathering knowledge about ancient life on Mars. It will also collect samples of Martian soil and leave them on surface of mars for pick up by future mars missions. It is also equipped with a helicopter to test flights in Martian atmosphere. If successful it will be the third rover to be deployed on the red planet. By far it is the most advanced and sophisticated rover ever designed and the total mission cost is whooping 3 billion dollars. UAE also launched its first mars missions and there are upcoming missions by Chinese space agency ISRO and ESA. So, the question arises that why NASA and other space agencies around the world spend billions of dollars on space missions when that money can easily be invested in education healthcare and most importantly at eradicating poverty.
If you are connected in science and technology and follow all the space missions that are carried out both by NASA and by private initiative, you may have already asked a classic question: after all, what is the use of sending equipment and people to space?
A new type of nuclear reactor, designed to power the outposts on the Moon and Mars, may be ready for its first test in space in a few years, the project team members said.

In 1941, Isaac Asimov was said to be the first ever to describe the process of using solar power in space and transmitting it to earth. The former professor and writer, presented the idea in one of his short stories, “Reason”. As terrestrial solar and wind power plants are limited to the time of day, and dependent on cloud interference, sunlight and wind speeds, space solar power is available 24/7, 365 days a year with no cloud or wind speed interruptions. As the Sun never stops shining in space,…
As Mars One is on a mission to establish settlement on Mars, they’ve discovered some very interesting facts about what happens to your body when you’ve set out on a 21 month mission to the red planet.
Jupiter has four sets of them made up of dust and particles due to its moons being bombarded by meteors. Uranus has 13, and recent thermal imaging shows they are the same temperature as the boiling point of liquid nitrogen. Saturn’s are made up of fragments of asteroids and comets, with pieces ranging in size from small icy specks to looming mountains.
One nightly ritual that should make a comeback is to see the stars. A simple yet effective way to remember our place in the universe and how small we really are when it comes to the cosmos. If you are going through troubles in your life, I believe it can be comforting to see the stars not only to realize that while our problems are serious and need to be dealt with, it is also good to realize the beauty in things and nothing is perhaps more beautiful than a clear, night sky where you can see the constellations, the full moon, and even a shooting star if you are lucky.
Astrophysics - a branch of astronomy concerned with the physical nature of stars and other celestial bodies. The application of the laws and the ones of physics to the interpretation of astronomical observations
