A 25-Ton Chinese Rocket Is Falling Back To Earth

Approximately 66 million years ago, an asteroid named ‘Chicxulub’ hit the earth and ended the age of dinosaurs. Now, almost the same thing is about to happen when a Chinese rocket named ‘Long March 5-B’ is going to hit the earth somewhere at a speed of thousands of miles per hour. The only difference between the two events is the first one wiped out 99% of life on the planet while the chances of the second one causing a casualty or injury are 1 in 10000.

NASA Will Send More Helicopters To Mars

If you ever heard about the ‘Ingenuity’ helicopter then fine, but if you didn’t, then let us tell you that it’s a small helicopter sent by NASA to Mars along with the ‘Perseverance’ rover.

US And Russia Agrees To Swap Seats On ISS Flights

The US may have imposed economic sanctions against Russia over the war in Ukraine, but in space, the two countries are finding ways to continue working together. NASA and Roscosmos have signed a long-awaited agreement to swap seats on flights to the International Space Station. The agreement will ensure that both the US- and the Russian-operated segments of the station will never be unmanned in case of canceled flights or other emergencies.

NASA Begins Return To Moon Mission

NASA’s CAPSTONE mission, which will chart a new orbit around the moon that will hopefully be used for a future crewed lunar space station, is underway after a successful launch on Tuesday morning. Rocket Lab’s Electron launch vehicle delivered the CAPSTONE satellite, which is roughly the size of a large microwave oven, to Earth orbit for step one of its lunar journey.

First Images From James Webb Space Telescope

Very soon, humanity will get to view the deepest images of the universe that have ever been captured. In two weeks, the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) — NASA’s super expensive, super-powerful deep-space optical imager — will release its first full-color images, and agency officials today suggested that they could just be the beginning.

Jupiter Is Eating Other Planets, Say, Scientists

They don’t call Jupiter “King of Planets” for nothing. It’s massive, really heavy, and now scientists think it ate chunks of other planets to get as big as it is.
That’s right, the gas giant named after Greek and Roman gods is thought to have absorbed a series of small “planetesimals” en route to claiming its place as the biggest planet in the solar system.
