Space: The Final Frontier. Exploring space developments and theorizing about how humans fit into the universe.
With the landing of Perseverance on Mars today, and the next part of her journey just beginning, I am reminded that I have my own journey to continue. In my struggles with life change, I had been thinking about not continuing. But as she rolls out, I had best do the same and do a system's check and get on with it; there is not time to waste!
Will NASA Find Remains of Ancient Life on Mars
As a child, I loved waking up early on Saturday morning, watching Looney Tunes Cartoons. Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, and others made Saturday mornings entertaining in my home. Looney Tunes introduced me to the character, Marvin the Martian. Dressed in a Roman soldier’s uniform and basketball shoes, Marvin played the role of villain on several cartoon episodes. I remembered wondering if life forms existed on Mars…maybe not miniature Marvin’s wearing knock-off Chuck Taylor’s…but life in general. Microscopic, giants, antennae sporting little green men…it really did not matter to me. I wanted to know if life existed on Mars. In the coming weeks and months, that mystery might finally be solved.
Rocketing Towards the Dreaded Kessler Syndrome
On 15 October 2020, scientists watched in fear as a 16-foot long inoperative Russian navigation satellite and part of a 25-foot long Chinese rocket whizzed passed each other at 33,000 miles an hour, more than 600 miles above the southern Atlantic Ocean. Had they collided, the debris cloud would’ve been large enough to put every other spacecraft and satellite in low Earth orbit at risk.
I’ve lived in this neighborhood from the beginning, when there was nothing but an open lot filled with debris. It was so lonely.
8 Space Satellites you should know about!
In this new era many things happen that’s beyond our expectations and sometimes things are hunted to find a novel way. Space Missions are something that’s bringing novelty to this new generation. Space probes/satellites/telescopes are constructed for various purposes and this is, what is described below. Given below are some of the space satellites that you should know.
50 Years Ago, Venera 7 Became the First Spacecraft to Land on Another Planet
On the 15th of December 1970 something momentous happened. The Venera 7 spacecraft landed on the surface of Venus, becoming the first human-made object to land on another planet. The landing only confirmed what everyone already knew: Venus was a forbidding place.
NASA’s New Cost-Cutting Mission Will Save Millions Of Dollars On Space Expeditions
Space missions are expensive, and sending the smallest aircraft to space can cost somewhere between $62 million to $450 million. Being the most potent US government agency for studying the cosmos, NASA spends billions of dollars every year for their expeditions into space.
Asteroid Mining For the Future
What happens when the Earth's most precious resources finally begin to dwindle? When its gems are all but scraped from its surface and sold off? When its rarest elements are strained and used? When the last gallons of water are on the brink of being consumed? Or even more grim of a reality, when the last tree is chopped down and fresh air becomes a scarce commodity? What then?
Meet the Extreme Exoplanet TOI-561 b
About 280 light years from Earth, a world of molten magma orbits one of the oldest stars in the galaxy. This exoplanet, 50 percent larger than the Earth, whips around its star at a breathtaking clip.
Did you know that The earliest cosmological models of the universe were developed by ancient Greek and Indian philosophers and were geocentric, placing Earth at the center. Over the centuries, more precise astronomical observations led Nicolaus Copernicus to develop the heliocentric model with the Sun at the center of the Solar System. In developing the law of universal gravitation, Isaac Newton built upon Copernicus's work as well as Johannes Kepler's laws of planetary motion and observations by Tycho Brahe.
Hi, just a quick word. This is my first time writing a story and am not sure if it's very good. Therefore, I will be writing it in small chapters to test the waters. I hope you enjoy it!
