The vernal equinox is less than 10 days away. That means one thing: Cracks are opening in Earth’s magnetic field.
Astronomers have used NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to uncover a vast, complex dust structure, about 150 billion miles across, enveloping the young star HR 4796A.
Experts say it is impossible to plot where module will re-enter the atmosphere, but the chance is higher in parts of Europe, US, Australia and New Zealand
Galaxies are not static islands of stars — they are dynamic and ever-changing, constantly on the move through the darkness of the Universe. Sometimes, as seen in this spectacular Hubble image of Arp 256, galaxies can collide in a crash of cosmic proportions.
New data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and the IRAM 30-m telescope have been used to create one of the largest high-resolution mosaics of a star formation region produced so far at millimeter wavelengths.
Data collected by NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter indicate that the atmospheric winds of the gas-giant planet run deep into its atmosphere and last longer than similar atmospheric processes found here on Earth. The findings will improve understanding of Jupiter’s interior structure, core mass and, eventually, its origin.
Futurist Michio Kaku sees humans doing ballet on Mars and projecting their brains into the cosmos. And aliens? Oh, they’re coming.
At the time of the Big Bang, all the matter in the universe was smooshed into an incredibly hot, infinitely dense speck of matter.
A new explanation for the moon’s origin suggests it actually formed inside our Earth – when our planet was still a seething, spinning cloud of rock, shaped like a doughnut. Previously, scientists believed that the moon formed as a result of a glancing blow between the early Earth and a Mars-size body, commonly called Theia.
