Experts Issue Solar Storm Alert as Charged Particles From the Sun Reach Earth

Space weather experts have predicted a solar storm after a stream of charged particles from the Sun got to Earth. Solar winds reaching our planet over the weekend have produced a weak geomagnetic storm in Earth’s magnetosphere, and the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) says the storm could last until Wednesday, September 30th. The storm could also affect satellite systems. Solar Storm Alert On Monday, the SWPC alert bulletin said that weak power grid fluctuations could take place, along with ‘minor impacts on satellite operations.’ Geomagnetic or solar storms…

Three Asteroids are Expected to Pass by Earth at Close Distance Today

​The U.S.-based space agency NASA has revealed that asteroid trackers have observed a trio of asteroids with a trajectory that gets them to safely approach and pass by Earth today, September 11th. Of the three space objects entering Earth’s neighborhood, asteroid 2020 RT1 is said to be the first in the bunch to make what is known as near-Earth approach. This will see the space rock as close as 0.03442 astronomical units (au) from our planet, which is equivalent to 3,199,538 miles.  Even though this may seem an incredibly huge…

Half the Atoms on Earth Could be Digital Data in the Future if Information Has Mass

We might see information as immaterial, but in a few centuries, the total amount of digital bits generated per year by humanity could exceed the number of atoms on our planet and be responsible for half of its mass. Anyway, those are the conclusions of mind-blowing new research that analyzed the increase of data over time and its potentially disastrous consequences. Information as Mass We live in times filled with information: cell phones are everywhere, and high social media use suggests that almost every human being is producing extreme quantities…

Where Did Water Come From? Research Reveals Water’s Possible Origins

​Earth might have had water from the very beginning, although previously, researchers have suggested it could have been delivered by a comet or an asteroid millions of years after the planet’s formation. When Earth took shape, it was much closer to the Sun, which means it was much hotter, so the idea it had water all along was dismissed from the start. However, now, according to a new study which answers one of Earth’s biggest enigmas, our planet might have had water from the beginning. New Water Revealings The new…

Hubble Space Telescope Captures Galaxy that Saw Gigantic Supernova

Although there are stars that end up as a white dwarf when it dies, other stars go supernova. NASA has recently published an image captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, featuring a galaxy that once saw a gigantic supernova explosion. Galaxy NGC 2442, also known as ‘The Meathook Galaxy’ because of its odd appearance, once hosted a supernova explosion in 2015 that took place in one of its arms. The Meathook Galaxy​ is located in the southern constellation of Volans, which is found 50 million light-years away from Earth. NGC…

There Might Have Been Alien Life on Earth

There is one question that has preoccupied the human race for a very long time. Governments, scientists and pop culture have all wondered if there are aliens in the Universe. It is impossible to say what is scarier: to be completely alone out there or to know that we are sharing the Universe with another form of life. In 2017, a US space scientist made an incredible claim: advanced forms of life could be a reality, but they disappeared a very long time ago. The man behind this claim is…
