One day, long before lizards were still fish and dinosaurs realised meteorites were not just shooting stars, the “Intelligence” that gave birth to all galaxies, planets and millions of universes, decided it was time to start an experiment.
Among the latest space news that can be found on https://orbitaltoday.com/, the following is the most exciting. On May 11, 2018, the Space Growth Partnership published its strategies for the UK space sector over the next ten years. Their vision can be summarized in four points:
One of the great ironies of Stephen Hawking’s death was that fact that his most revolutionary contribution to science, Hawking radiation, suggests that nothing in our universe can last forever.
There is a belt of rocks, AKA a planet that has not yet formed, that orbits the Sun. It orbits between Mars and Jupiter.
The universe is a huge place and people exist in a small part of it. The area human beings, animals, and other creatures occupy is what is referred to as the Solar System. It comprises formations which we recognize as planets, satellites that orbit these planets, and an average-sized star that we identify as the Sun. The four inner planets of the solar system are known as ‘Terrestrial Planets.’ This is because their major components are metals and silicate rocks. The other four planets are identified as ‘Jovian’ planets. Also, you can refer to them as ‘gas giants.’
Many space stories told on Planet Earth involve communication across the vast universe.
Each night, when I can, I wander out into the open space of Earth place Bakersfield/Oildale, a base somewhere between the long airstrips of coastal California, such as Edwards Air Force Base, where the civilian Space Shuttles (Endeavor, Columbia, etc.) once landed, and the central state spaceports, such as Shreiver Airbase in Colorado, and Sir Richard Branson's spaceport in New Mexico.
The Solar System, well... our planet system, was created six billion years ago and slowly evolved into its present configuration of a central star and revolving planets, rocks, comets and gases.
For the Western United States, some residents are wondering if we are entering a new age.
If you haven't heard the news regarding the asteroids coming "close" to Earth this past week, then you must have been hanging out in a cave in the great outdoors somewhere.
Planet X, life on other planets, cryogenic sleep until we return to Earth... but overrun by apes. It all sounds so exciting, and terrifying at the same time. However, is it even realistic? Or is it all just nonsense from Science Fiction? Before I go on a rant on all the cool things that are and could possibly be out there... let's start by trying to answer this one question: Will we ever reach another constellation?
Fifty years ago today, two humans piloted a rickety rocketship, with walls as thin as toilet paper, and a computer dumber than a calculator, to the surface of another world.
