Gravitational Waves: 'We Now Have the Birth of New Way to Look at the Universe'

Post Pic
With the 2017 Nobel Prize in physics having been awarded to three US scientists for the detection of gravitational waves, one of them, Barry Barish, a professor emeritus at California’s Institute of Technology (Caltech), said that the discovery was bound to change mankind’s traditional view of the universe. Researchers Rainer Weiss, Kip Thorne and Barry Barish who will share the 9 million... 

Russia Releases 360 Space video, Take That Flat Earthers! Ultimate PROOF!

Post Pic
Flat Earth is a mental disorder of astronomical proportions… after all it can only be proven wrong through astronomy! Haha! Flat Earthers like to argue that the Earth is flat because NASA isn’t trustworthy and they are “hiding the truth”! This conspiracy is so insane is funny! How could NASA “hide” anything like that? Its not like America is the only country in... 

UAE to build $132mn mock ‘Martian City’ in the desert

Post Pic
The United Arab Emirates has announced plans to build a ‘Martian City’ on Earth in preparation for humanity’s planned colonization of the Red Planet. The 1.9 million square foot (176,5151 square meters) Mars Science city project was launched by the UAE earlier this week and is estimated to cost AED 500 million ($136 million). Once completed, the Mars Science city will be the largest simulated... 

Weird ‘ice blades’ on Pluto finally cracked by NASA

Post Pic
Perplexing sword-like columns of space ice that rise up through Pluto’s Tartarus Dorsa mountains may finally have been explained by NASA – two years after the weird formations were first observed in detail. The ‘ice blades’ are the result of solid methane ‘evaporation,’ an erosion process similar to that witnessed in the peaks of Chile. A dwarf planet located far from our sun, Pluto is... 

Saturn destroys Cassini in dramatic final moments

On October 15, 1997 Cassini launched from Earth on its mammoth journey to the mysterious gas giant lurking at the edge of our solar system – Saturn. Now, almost 20 years later, it has all come to an end in dramatic, fiery fashion. Cassini began its final descent Friday into the dark heart of the solar system’s second biggest planet. At about 07:55 EDT (11:55 GMT) the probe dove into the planet’s... 

Hubble spots pitch-black exoplanet so hot it ‘eats light’ from nearby star

Post Pic
Scientists studying the exoplanet WASP-12b have made a startling discovery: the planet is so hot it reflects almost no light, making it appear pitch-black. An international team of astronomers from McGill University, Canada and the University of Exeter, UK measured how much light is reflected by the exoplanet, otherwise known as its ‘albedo,’ in order to better understand the chemical... 

China Unveils Physics-Defying Engine for Deep Space Exploration

Post Pic
Chinese scientists claim they have developed a working model of a microwave engine, which defies the laws of conventional physics, CCTV-2 reported. The TV channel provided no details of the EmDrive microwave engine, saying only that it would soon be tested in space. The EmDrive is built around a microwave-generating magnetron and a resonator, which accumulates the energy of their fluctuations. This...

Just over six months after President Trump assumed office, the Washington establishment has, in the short to medium term at least, ended... 

Former NASA Scientist Claims Alien Ships Are Hiding in Saturn's Rings

Post Pic
Dr. Norman Bergrun, a former NASA Engineer, has claimed “giant” alien spacecraft are to be found in Earth’s solar system around ringed planets such as Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus – not the first time the alien enthusiast has made such fantastical claims. UFO hunter Dr. Bergrun claimed the ships are “sucking” energy from the planet via the rings in order to “proliferate”... 

Indian Scientists Discover Supercluster of Galaxies

Indian scientists have now claimed to have discovered an extremely large supercluster of galaxies. The supercluster of galaxies is as big as 20 million billion suns and named Saraswati by scientists from the Pune-based Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA). Discovered by four scientists — Shishir Sankhyayan, a PhD student at the Pune-based Indian Institute of Science Education... 

Another Earth-Size World May Lurk in the Outer Solar System

Post Pic
A planet-size object may be orbiting the sun in the icy reaches of the solar system beyond Pluto. Scientists at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL) have determined that an unseen object with a mass somewhere between that of Earth and Mars could be lurking in the Kuiper Belt, a region beyond Neptune filled with thousands of icy asteroids, comets and dwarf planets. In... 

Rare total solar eclipse will ‘bring people to tears’
