Asteroid as Powerful as 50 Megaton Nuke May Slam Into Earth in 2023 – NASA

A large asteroid that could someday be headed directly for Earth would pack a tremendous impact force 1,500 times that of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs combined, the newspaper Express warned. The British daily cites NASA sources as claiming that the space rock, measuring nearly 700 feet across, could have a staggering 62 different potential impact trajectories with Earth with each of th

It’s Official: Astronomers Have Discovered another Earth

NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope discovered an Earth-like planet circling a nearby star within the Goldilocks zone of our galaxy. Kepler-186f is around 500 light-years from Earth in the Cygnus constellation. The habitable zone, also identified as the Goldilocks zone, is the area around a star within which planetary-mass objects with enough atmospheric pressure can sustain liquid water at their surf

Blood moon: This Sunday you can experience a rare ‘Super Wolf Blood Moon’

This weekend half of the world will be able to witness a spectacular ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon‘ total lunar eclipse (a mouthful, we know), according to reports. Forbes claim that Sunday night is the night to turn your eyes to the sky if you live in North and Central America, whereas for South America and large parts of Europe, the spectacle will occur in the early hours of Monday morning. F

Astronomers Capture the Sharpest Image yet of a Monster Galaxy 12.4 Billion Light Years Away

Looking back 13-billion years into our universe's past, a group of scientists first discovered the monster COSMOS-AzTEC-1 galaxy using the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope in Hawai'i and later followed up with observations using the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT) in Mexico and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. What they found was astonishing: not only was this g

Amazing Photos Show Huge Crater Filled With Ice On Mars

We might not be about to have a White Christmas down here on Earth but there is certainly going to be one on Mars by the looks of it. A high-resolution camera called the Mars Express, operated by the European Space Agency, has discovered a gigantic crater on the red planet that is 50km wide and filled with ice. The crater in question is called the Korolev crater and it sits in Mars' northe

A Bright Green ‘Christmas Comet’ Will Fly the Closest to Earth Tonight And Won’t Be This Close Again For Thousands Of Years

Tonight, look up at the night sky and you just might be lucky enough to see a bright, blurry ball with a visible greenish-gray shade. That greenish-gray shade object is a comet that orbits between the Sun and Jupiter will make its nearest approach to Earth in centuries. And this all will be happening right on the heels of this year’s most beautiful meteor shower of 2018 Tony Farnham, is a r

There is a “Highly Habitable” Planet Just 4 light years from Us, Study Suggests

A nearby exoplanet orbiting within the habitable zone of a star just 4.2 light-years from Earth may be home to a vast ocean, boosting its chances of supporting life. Since its discovery, questions about the conditions at the surface of Proxima b have been swirling; the planet’s mass is just about 1.3 times that of Earth’s, and the red dwarf star it circles is similar in age to our sun. St

Someone Notices First Steps On The Moon Don’t Match Neil Armstrong’s Boots, Gets Destroyed With Facts

It was one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong put his left foot on the Moon and creating the first human footprint there. But a new conspiracy theory has emerged, suggesting that he didn’t even wear the boots, required to take that step. To support the claim, these twisted minds are comparing a photo of Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit (ta

China Landed On The Moon And Snapped The Best-Ever Images Of The Lunar Surface

While exploring the lunar surface, China’s Chang’e 3 lander discovered a new type of moon rock, and managed to snap THOUSANDS of high-resolution images of the moon. For the first time ever, you can take a peek at the lunar surface like never before thanks to the sophisticated cameras located onboard the Chang’e 3, one of China’s most advanced lunar landers. The Lunar Mission touche

It’s Official: NASA Just Announced Plan to Send Humans to The Moon And Mars

NASA's got a whole new plan. It wants boots on the Moon in 10 years and on Mars in 20. Give or take. On Wednesday, the space agency announced its detailed National Space Exploration Plan to achieve the President's lofty goals set out in his December 2017 Space Policy Directive-1. Those bold plans include: planning a new Moon landing, long-term human deployment on and around the Moon, reass
