Giant fissure opened across the sun spewing rapid solar winds toward our planet

A giant fissure has opened across the sun and is spewing rapid solar winds toward our planet. This coronal hole is a vast region where the sun’s magnetic field tears apart, allowing solar wind to escape. Super-charged solar winds flowing from the sun’s atmosphere are expected...

ONCE AGAIN — Powerful supercomputers reveal evidence of the existence of Dark Matter

Using powerful supercomputers, astronomers at Durham University reveal further evidence of the existence of dark matter – the mysterious substance that is believed to hold the Universe together. ______ The scientists used computer models to simulate the formation of galaxies in the presence of dark matter...

Coronal loops of fire — Incredibly detailed views of the Sun’s surface like never before

https://youtu.be/SwS3qKSZUuI Thanks to NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, we can now see incredibly detailed views of the suns surface. We are able to witness solar flares, CMEs, coronal rain like never before. This is a series of videos - timelapses created from thousands of images taken by SDO...

New super-sized Earth 39 light years from our solar system close enough to detect signs of life

Scientists have found a planet the size of a jumbo Earth circling a nearby star, meaning it is one of the handful of worlds where astronomers' sensors might be powerful enough to detect signs of life. ______ The new planet, known as LHS 1140b, receives enough...

Huge asteroid flying very close to our planet at a distance of 1.1 million miles on April 19

Call it a close shave of a celestial sort. On April 19, an asteroid roughly the size of the Rock of Gibraltar will speed safely by Earth at a distance of 1.1 million miles — or less than five times the distance from Earth to...

You can help NASA finding Planet Nine from Outer Space

Citizen scientists could unlock ‘once-in-a-century discoveries,’ according to researchers. It seems something is lurking out there but stargazers don’t know what it is. ______ Measurements taken from the movements of distant objects in our solar system suggest there is a ninth planet way out beyond Neptune in...

There is possible Alien life on our Solar System — NASA announces

It might look like a frozen wasteland, but beneath the inhospitable surface of Saturn’s moon Enceladus, life could be thriving in warm underground seas, scientists believe. ______ Nasa’s Cassini spacecraft has picked up the first evidence that chemical reactions are happening deep below the ice which...

Fly beyond the edge of the Universe

Planets, stars, galaxies, clusters, space. The universe as we know it is made up of many different things, much of which we may never be able to understand or even see. But is there a limit to our reality? How far does the universe...

Become an Astronaut

What happened? "Roskosmos" has announced an open competition to the cosmonaut. The selected candidates will enter the "Federation" and the crew of the new ship will be the first Russian cosmonauts who will fly to the moon. Reception of documents began on March 14 and the contest...

Scientists obtained for the first time proof of the presence of dark matter in the innermost part of our Galaxy, the Milky Way

The Universe is pervaded by a mysterious form of matter, dubbed dark matter, about five times more abundant than the ordinary matter -- made of atoms -- we are familiar with. Its existence in galaxies was robustly established in the 1970s. Scientists now obtained...
