Astronomers have discovered a twin of our planet. This Titan - the largest satellite of Saturn in the entire solar system, only here, like us, there are real seas, rivers flow, evaporation from the surface and precipitation. This is confirmed...
Many are seeking to send manned missions to Mars in the near future. Among those interested in these trips are Elon Musk and US President Donald Trump. But there are a number of problems that need to be resolved before...
Accurate measurements of the orbit of Mercury allowed scientists to calculate how quickly our luminary loses mass, and again to test the general theory of relativity. This is the result of a scientific article published by a scientific group...
The Juno automatic station received images of clouds that encircle the south pole of Jupiter. The NASA website notes that the picture was taken in December during the tenth approach of the probe to Jupiter. The device was located at a...
The US Space Agency has posted a video to discover the most intense nebula visible to the naked eye as if you are inside. The NASA released a video imitating a flight through the Orion Nebula, which lies about 1,350...
The scientific team led by Weiss Lauren ( Lauren Weiss ) from the University of Montreal conducted a large-scale study of planetary systems and found interesting patterns in the size and location of other worlds. Curiously, the solar system...
Astronomers from the Breakthrough Listen project for the first time recorded several repetitions of the mysterious radio signal FRB 121102, the source of which is supposedly in the galaxy three billion light years from the Earth, the press service...
Mysterious radio-frequency flashes, "alien radio signals," are most likely generated by magnetars or other types of neutron stars whose radiation passes through the powerful magnetic fields of black holes, astronomers state in an article published in the journal Nature. "These...
The unusually large amount of water and clay in the "Cumberland" stone, drilled by the Curiosity rover, will force it to stay at the site of the current parking for 2-2.5 weeks, during which the rover will examine the...
The MRO probe instruments helped scientists to measure the amount of water ice on Mars hidden beneath the soil on one of the planet's plains, whose cumulative mass was comparable to the amount of water in the Great Lake,...
The NASA rover discovered on the surface of Mars unusual microscopic structures, similar in shape to petrified microbes or microscopic worm tunnels, reports Space.com. "These structures have extremely small dimensions - their width is only 1-2 millimeters, and the length...
American astronomers rejected the theory according to which, near the star Tabbi (KIC 8462852) in the constellation Cygnus could be a giant engineering design of the alleged extraterrestrial civilization. Earlier attention of astronomers was attracted by anomalously uneven and sharp...
An American scientist has proposed a bold new theory that could explain why, despite the many UFO sightings that have been reported, extraterrestrials would be reluctant to reveal themselves to humanity. John A. Ball, MIT radio astronomer, Massachusetts Institute of...
On the Moon's orbit, a station will be built to disembark people on a natural satellite of the Earth. The project is called "Deep Space Gateway". The assembly of the station is scheduled for the mid-2020s. For Deep Space Gateway,...
Russia and the United States will build a space station in the Moon's orbit. Such an agreement was signed by the countries in 2017. The project was named "Deep Space Gateway", it will be a continuation of the cooperation currently...
Humanity has not yet established contact with extraterrestrial civilizations or has not found traces of extraterrestrial life because most of the potentially inhabited planets are most likely formed by ice-covered water worlds, said Alan Stern, the head of the...
Agency NASA issued a press release , which reveals many interesting details about the large orbiting telescope WFIRST. Its launch is scheduled for the mid-2020s. On sensitivity, it will be equal to "Hubble", but will survey a hundred times the...

“Snowman” in space

NASA has published a picture showing the appearance of the "snowman" on the surface of an asteroid, because of the impact of collisions with other space objects. The picture taken by the US agency this week was taken by the...
The solar system could have formed without the participation of a supernova. With the chemical composition of the Sun, the version agrees better that the "trigger mechanism" was a powerful star wind from a huge hot star belonging to...
