The talk about renewable energy is centred around its impact on global warming.
For the first time, SpaceX today launched both a rocket and a cargo ship that have flown before, a step forward in the company’s goal to lower the cost of spaceflight.
Scientists are developing a new type of programming that will allow tiny robots to think and act like insects, making them more autonomous and adaptable to complex environments.
A team led by two NASA scientists is all set to embark on a 750-kilometre expedition in one of the most barren landscapes on Earth to survey an unexplored stretch of Antarctic ice.
SpaceX appears set to launch its 13th commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station for NASA on Friday after scuttling several earlier attempts this month.
The planet Kepler-90i, described at a briefing on Thursday and in a paper accepted for publication in the Astronomical Journal, demonstrates for the first time that other stars can host planetary systems as populous as our own solar system, the Los Angeles Times reported.
With eight planets, the Kepler-90 system equals our own system in terms of the number of planets orbiting a single star. Astronomers have yet to detect a system with more than eight planets.
Utilising Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms from Google that decoded massive sets of data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, scientists have discovered two exoplanets, including one that has the first known eight-planet system like ours.
A 60-year-old mystery regarding the source of some energetic and potentially damaging particles in the Earth’s radiation belts has been solved, using data from a student operated shoebox-sized satellite. The results indicate energetic electrons in Earth’s inner radiation belt – primarily near its inner edge – are created by cosmic rays born from explosions […]
With the size of earth observation satellites reducing and the future trend moving towards a constellation of small satellites rather than a large one, India’s space agency is developing a smaller rocket that can carry satellites weighing up to 500 kg, a senior official said
If the Falcon isn’t flying by Friday, SpaceX will have to wait until late December at NASA’s request, based on sunlight restrictions on the orbiting lab. As before, SpaceX will attempt to land the first-stage booster back at Cape Canaveral after liftoff.
When a meteor comes hurtling towards Earth, the high-pressure air in front of it seeps into its pores and cracks, pushing the body of the meteor apart and causing it to explode, a study has found.
Jupiter’s Great Red Spot – the solar system’s most famous storm – is almost one-and-a-half Earths wide and penetrates about 300 kilometres into the planet’s atmosphere, according to data collected by NASA’s Juno spacecraft.
Jupiter’s famous storm, the Great Red Spot, penetrates well below the clouds — about 300 kilometres into the planet’s atmosphere, suggest data collected by NASA’s Juno spacecraft.
Researchers have developed a new cleaner and cheaper way to produce hydrogen fuel from methane and electricity in just one step. Hydrogen is an excellent fuel which, due to its high energetic density and zero greenhouse gas emission, is essential in a great number of industrial processes, researchers said.
NASA has said its planet-hunting Kepler space telescope made its latest discovery using machine learning from Google. The discovery will be announced at a media teleconference on December 14, NASA said.
Scientists have for the first time turned diamond into graphite using ultra-short flashes of an X-ray laser.
The 43-year-old astronaut, who made his first spaceflight in April 2017 as a flight engineer for Expedition 51/52 on the International Space Station, was here to hold a discourse as part of Odisha Knowledge Hub Lecture Series, organised by the state government.
The annual Geminid meteor shower has arrived and it will put on a dazzling show for skywatchers when it peaks overnight on December 13-14, NASA has said.
As collection of space data increases, NASA is exploring the infusion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into space communications networks to meet demand and increase efficiency.
The Martian atmosphere is well protected from the effects of the solar wind, despite the absence of an Earth-like magnetic dipole, a study has found.
Scientists have developed an entirely textile-based, bacteria-powered battery that could pave the way for smart clothes and could be integrated into flexible wearable electronics.
Black holes are known as voracious eaters of stars because of their intense gravitational pull, but when astronomers got a rare opportunity to measure one such system’s magnetic field, they found it weaker than expected.
NASA scientists in Antarctica are set to launch a balloon-borne instrument to collect information on cosmic rays, high-energy particles from beyond the solar system that enter Earth’s atmosphere every day.
Scientists have made the first step towards creating sustainable petrol using beer as a key ingredient. One of the most widely used sustainable alternatives to petrol world-wide is bioethanol, according to researchers at University of Bristol in the UK.
Scientists have discovered the farthest known supermassive black hole – a matter-eating beast that is 800 million times the mass of our Sun.
Scientists have successfully 3D printed lifelike artificial organ models that mimic the structure, properties and feel of real organs.
