In 2020 alone, Astronomers have managed to discover more than 200 new planets. All the newly discovered planets are outside of our solar system. The search for a planet similar to Earth has been underway for decades, although methods and technology for planet discovery have been evolving with time.

NASA Mars Insight Lander About To Turn Off

After spending four years on the surface of the Red planet, NASA’s Mars insight lander is about to turn off. The amount of dust covering the lander’s solar panels has been causing its power levels to decrease for the past several months. Although NASA previously warned that InSight was not responding properly as it couldn’t respond to signals from Earth.

Scientist Proposes Plan To Grow Forests On Mars

Mars or “The Red Planet” has always caught the attention of space explorers. Humans have been thinking of colonizing and building permanent settlements on Mars for decades. The crucial part comes when the Martian surface emerges as a topic of discussion. The planet is barren and inhospitable due to its climate, but the new research outlines a plan to build forests on Mars.

James Webb Space Telescope Has Found The Oldest Galaxy

Four ancient galaxies discovered by the James Webb Space Telescope in the first few months of operation have been confirmed by astronomers to be the oldest galaxies ever discovered by mankind and to be almost as old as the cosmos itself.

Construction Of Largest Telescope In The World Underway

Construction for the world’s largest radio-astronomy observatory is underway. The largest telescope will be constructed over vast areas in Australia and Africa. It will gather radio signals generated by celestial objects to provide answers to some of astronomy’s most puzzling questions.

Astronomers Detect Black Hole Swallowing A Star

The scientists released an image that shows a black hole in the process of completely destroying a celestial body. More than halfway across the known universe, astronomers have observed a black hole ripping apart a star that got too near to it. One of just four instances, and the first since 2011, of a black hole being seen ripping apart a passing star happened in this instance.

NASA Telescope Reveals No Sign Of Life On Venus

Scientists are interested in the possibility of life on Venus because of Venus’ proximity and similarities with Earth. During recent examinations of Venus’ atmosphere, an aircraft-borne telescope was unable to detect any indications of any biological activity. Due to Venus’s total cloud cover, human understanding of its surface is mostly based on speculations.

Ex-NASA Scientist Drops An Egg From Space Without Breaking

Eggs are pretty easily smashed as their hard covers offer little protection when there is strong force. It is because the egg cover is not made for such potency. How about dropping an egg from first floor of a building? It’ll obviously break because of the amount of force involved.

China Is Developing New Nuclear System To Power Moon Base

China is advancing forward like no other country on the planet. The aim of it is to set up lunar research centers by 2028. China will establish a lunar research station, eight years earlier than anticipated. The landing mission included running scientific tests like 3D printing lunar dust, followed by others in near future.
