NASA’s Mars rover Opportunity has been used to measure the weathering of meteorites on the Red Planet, revealing just how little water there is on the surface.
A strangely shaped depression on Mars could be a new place to look for signs of life on the Red Planet, according to a University of Texas at Austin-led study.
THE end of the universe is about to get interesting. Most data favours a slow fade into a silent, frozen oblivion. But a new analysis suggests the cosmos could gradually tear itself apart, galaxy from galaxy and atom from atom. Or at least, we can’t rule it out.
White holes are basically black holes in reverse: They eject all the matter sucked into a black hole. We’ve never observed one, and most astrophysicists suspect they don’t exist – all because they’re not the exact opposite of black holes.
The world is at the start of a renaissance in supersonic and hypersonic flight that will transform aviation, but the effort will need steady commitment and funding if the United States wants to lead the way, congressional leaders and industry officials said at a forum late last month.
WORMHOLES – tunnels through space-time that connect black holes – may be a consequence of the bizarre quantum property called entanglement. The redefinition would resolve a pressing paradox that you might be burned instead of crushed, should you fall into a black hole.
