NASA’s humanoid robot put to the test for ultimate Mars challenge

Post Pic
NASA’s Robonauts are being put to the test in Mars-like obstacle courses in order to pave the way for future humanoid space exploration and help bridge the expansive gap between Earth and human colonization of the red planet. NASA built four six-foot, 290-pound, Iron man-like pieces of machinery named Valkyrie, at the cost of about $2 million each, and then outsourced three of them to universities... 

New Experiment Suggests Humans Can Grow Potatoes on Mars

Astronomers have provided new evidence to prove the existence of the mysterious, yet still undiscovered Planet X on the outskirts of the solar system. According to the new data, the planet could be formed in another stellar system. James Vesper of the University of New Mexico in Las Cruces (USA) believes that the planet is a fugitive heavenly body that was captured by gravity of the Sun. In early... 

Scientists find Portals to Parallel Worlds

Post Pic
An international team of researchers confirmed the existence of portals to parallel worlds on Earth. The scientists conducted a series of tests showing that the gateways to parallel worlds created by ancient civilizations are located, for example, at Stonehenge (UK). For many years, scientists have been trying to solve the mystery of Stonehenge, the Gate of the Sun in Bolivia and the Gate of the Gods... 

NASA Releases Image of Earth, Moon as Seen from Mars Orbit

Post Pic
NASA has released an image of Earth and Moon as seen from an artificial device rotating around Mars. The picture was made available on the agency’s website. Australia and the surrounding oceans are particularly visible in the image. The Moon as compared with the originally obtained images has been artificially made brighter. The scale of distances between the celestial bodies and their relative... 

Curiosity Rover Finds Purple Rocks on Mars

Post Pic
The most recent series of Martian photographs taken by the NASA rover Curiosity has revealed purple rocks on the surface of the red planet. NASA officials have called this a suggestion to a greater degree of diversity in the geological composition of the region, and a hint as to what caused Mars to lose most of its water. The photos were taken near the base of 18,000-foot Mount Sharp, one of Mars’s... 

Astronaut snaps bizarre Sahara "eye" desert formation

Post Pic
A stunning image showing off the wondrous spirals of the ‘Eye of Africa’, also known as the Richat structure, has been captured by French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The incredible structure, located in the Sahara desert in Mauritania, has a diameter of 50km (31 miles) and was originally thought to be a meteorite-impact crater. Scientists now believe,... 

Meteor explodes over Siberian city, turning night into day

Post Pic
People in the Republic of Khakassia in southwest Siberia witnessed a large fireball exploding in the sky on Tuesday, which briefly made the evening as bright as the day. Some even managed to catch the event on camera. “At first, I couldn’t understand what’s going on. There was a sudden luminescence. It wasn’t as light as day, but still quite bright,” witness Olga Sagalakova told RT. “We... 

Antarctica “Guardians” Retaliate Against America With Massive New Zealand Earthquake

Post Pic
An amazing (but nearly 90% censored) Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the Antarctica “guardians” swiftly retaliated against the United States this past week by “creating/unleashing” a massive earthquake after the Obama regime sent “without invitation or permission” its Secretary of State John Kerry to initiate contact with them in the... 

5th force of nature possibly discovered, US physicists say

Post Pic
Scientists are ecstatic over the fact that they may have just discovered the fifth fundamental force of nature. The possible discovery of a previously-unknown subatomic particle looks set to finally bring the elusive dark matter into the mix. The discovery centers on a new type of boson that possesses characteristics previously unseen in particles. Furthermore, its existence casts doubt upon whether... 

New NASA find suggests Mars resembles Earth more than previously thought

Post Pic
High levels of manganese oxides discovered by NASA’s Curiosity rover on Mars may indicate that oxygen was once abundant there. With last year’s discovery that the red planet may have been home to ancient lakes, it now seems more akin to our blue one. “The only ways on Earth that we know how to make these manganese materials involve atmospheric oxygen or microbes,” said Nina Lanza, a planetary... 

US Scientist Confirms Russian Fears Of New Planet, Warns Will Affect Earth Soon

Post Pic
A new appendix added earlier today to the massive Aerospace Defence Forces (ADF) report relating to the mysterious new planet confirmed to be the outer reaches of our solar system says that an American scientist has confirmed many of its findings and further stated that our Earth is now under direct threat as this celestial body could begin to harm our Earth this month. As we had previously reported... 

Scorching Hot Exoplanet Makes Scientists Scratch Heads

Post Pic
An international team of astronomers has managed to compile the first temperature map of 55 Cancri e, a rocky ‘super-Earth’ exoplanet thought to have twice the diameter of Earth, according to NASA. The first thermal map of the exoplanet 55 Cancri e has been compiled by researchers using NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope; the map reveals extreme temperature swings from one side of the... 

Scientists Reveal Dark Matter Secret Behind Mercury's Crust

Post Pic
The secret behind Mercury’s low visibility to astronomers has finally been revealed thanks to a recent mission to the planet. The reason for planet Mercury’s ‘dark’ appearance to astronomers has been found to be graphite, astronomers examining data from NASA’s MESSENGER mission found. The study, carried out at Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory...
