A UFO sighting on the Moon is making the rounds in Europe with photos taken by an amateur astronomer showing what looks like a black triangle spacecraft hovering above the surface of the Moon.
At one point or another, everyone has looked up at the night sky, seen the moon, and wondered what it would be like to take a walk on the lunar surface. For aeons, man’s fascination with the moon served as a spark for scientific discovery, as well as the basis for religion, and far more.
For as long as mankind has been able to study the cosmos, we've been asking the same unanswered question... are we alone in the universe? Some believe we are indeed alone, meanwhile other people think the total opposite. There are a number of arguments that help both sides fight there case, which are all pretty good points making it even harder to answer this famous question.
While movies tend to depict the space odyssey as a kind of epic tale in which the unattainable degrees of the cosmos and far flung worlds are inherently ignored, in real life that solar flare in deep space will kill you. Dogfights in space? No. What the movies have shown us over the years only really proves that we just don't know how space truly operates and the grand designs behind this makeup are left in even more secrets.
For decades the dream of going to space has remained that, a dream. In the world of science and technology, only a few were able to explore this frontier. But with the emergence of lower cost small satellites and increasing opportunities to reach space, a new era of smaller rockets has emerged to carry these small satellites to space. One of these companies is Rocket Lab.
I think we could all agree that if someone is going to speak or write on something, then they should at least know what they're talking about, right? Well, a couple of months ago, I wrote piece for Futurism.media about how time travel to the past is almost here and that probably everything you knew about time travel is wrong because most physicists talking about it don't work on the problem. Well, guess what's happened since? I've made more progress on my own research, which is putting me within shooting range of hitting a 2019 mark for my goal of actually doing time travel to the past (more on that in another piece) and I discovered the perfect example of what I wrote about in previous article. Ladies and gentleman, I introduce to you "the Spaceman", Paul Sutter, an astrophysicist from the Ohio State University who is also the chief scientist (as if they really need one) for COSI, a kiddie science center in Columbus, OH. Paul has a video and wrote an article for Space.com on time travel under its Expert Voices op-eds and was unwitting enough to prove EVERYTHING I had talked about before. Trust me, he is AMAZING and proves conclusively that he's no time travel expert. Just for convenience sake, I'll deal with what he says in the video, first.
The Aerospace market can be divided into numerous sectors, consisting of: Military Aircrafts, Missiles, Space Aircrafts, Commercial Airlines, and General Aviation. This expansion can be attributed to several factors. In the case of Commercial Airlines, a direct correlation can be seen in the number of aircrafts for commercial use, and an upward trend economically. Tendencies to go on lavish vacations and purchase flights increase as individuals make more money. Military aircrafts and missiles are mainly purchased through government contracts, and with a Republican now in office, it is valid to assume high defense spending will continue. In addition, there are also several events that provide companies with contracts. For example, this past year, in the Paris Air Show, Boeing and Airbus were competing to get orders. In the more recent news, when North Korea was testing missiles, these stocks, along with gold, rallied.
On the floor of the Spaceflight Operations Facility at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory there is a plaque that boldly proclaims: “The Center of the Universe.” With large screens on the wall displaying data being downloaded from various spacecraft across the solar system and engineers pouring over rows and rows of glowing screens in the darkened room, the Spaceflight Operations Facility resembles a scene from a science fiction film. It is a fitting description as this is the only place on Earth where we can communicate with robotic spacecraft in deep space.
The history of the Black Knight Satellite, an object orbiting our planet in polar orbit, should not be so controversial. Polar orbit is an orbit that goes in the opposite direction that our planet naturally revolves. This polar orbit has been used for surveillance, and neither The United States or Russia had capabilities of launching satellites into that orbit when the Black Knight Satellite was supposedly discovered in 1954.
When things finally come to a head, will the passengers and crew be ready...
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has proven that water on Mars actually exists. An maging spectrometer on MRO, researchers detected signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious streaks are seen on Mars itself.
Pluto was downgraded from a Planet to a Dwarf Planet in 2005. Pluto's surface has always been unknown. But not now. On the 14th July 2015, New Horizons spacecraft was the first to get detailed and accurate measurements and also a load of observations of Pluto and its Moons.
