Space: The Final Frontier. Exploring space developments and theorizing about how humans fit into the universe.
See the Stars
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.
Basic Understanding of Astrophysics, Dark Matter, Dark Energy and Black Holes
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
Stars are classified by their spectra (elements they absorb) & their temperature. There are seven main star types in order of lowering temperatures starting with O, B, A, F, G, K, & M. O & B stars are very bright & uncommon, while M stars are dim but common.
Get In Loser, We're Going to Outer Space
I don't know about anyone else, but boy am I tired of living on Earth right now. Maybe my agitation is more towards the people running Earth than the planet itself. Still, I'd like one day where I don't have to read headlines of fires burning down the amazon, rising sea levels, ignorant politicians, racism, homophobia, poverty, school shootings, animals going extinct, and now, a global pandemic. Sure - I will do my part as an Earthling to help change these horrible things, but that doesn't mean I don't need a break from it all. It's overwhelming, thank you very much.
The Spiders from Mars or How I'm Spending Time After Quarantine
When Governor Murphy gives the okay, I’m out of here. Straight down the turnpike and straight towards the sky to fly off in a thirty foot rocket full of cheese wiz and French Champlain. Ritz crackers lull me to sleep as I ascend & drift off through our compromised atmosphere. I float weightless around my new home as I journey on past the Moon past Venus to our first destination Mercury.
Is the Earth Flat? The answer is NO!!!!!!
The belief that the Earth is flat has been described as the ultimate conspiracy theory. Members of the Flat Earth Society claim to believe the Earth is flat. Walking around on the planet's surface, it looks and feels flat, so they deem all evidence to the contrary, such as satellite photos of Earth as a sphere, to be fabrications of a "round Earth conspiracy" orchestrated by NASA and other government agencies.
On the Shoulders of Giants to the Stars
At the beginning of the space race, there was a motion to put man in space fastest. No grammar did not matter the only thing that did matter was beating the Russians, except when it came to putting a woman in space. Russia beat us by almost 20 years by sending Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova. It was not because we did not have competent women ready to go to space, in fact, there were thirteen of them and they were called the Mercury Thirteen, but because at the time women were still seen as belonging in the kitchen.
The Game Of Life
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.
UK Space Industry Sets out a Vision for Growth
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:
Hawking Radiation: How Black Holes Die
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.
The Asteroid Belt
There is a belt of rocks, AKA a planet that has not yet formed, that orbits the Sun. It orbits between Mars and Jupiter. What is the asteroid belt?
Incredible History of the Solar System
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.’
