Shocking NASA Discovery: FOUR Asteroids Headed Towards Earth Today

NASA is known to monitor asteroids that head towards Earth, having their Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) team keeping watch and scanning for potentially hazardous asteroids. However, since the sky is pretty vast, they were not able to detect two of the four asteroids that were getting close to our planet. Asteroids 2020 AC, 2020 AD, 2019 YH2 and 2019 AE3 Heading Towards Earth The four asteroids whizzed past earth at huge speeds on January 2. While 2019 YH2 and 2019 AE3 were discovered and monitored from afar, CNEOS did not…

NASA To Launch A “Robot Hotel” To The ISS This Week

NASA will soon launch something that the space agency calls a robot hotel to the International Space Station. This is set to launch aboard the next commercial resupply mission, which will be aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket this week. The robot hotel is known as the Robotic Tool Stowage  The robot hotel is known as the Robotic Tool Stowage unit, aka RiTS. The ‘hotel’ designation is not too appropriate, according to Tech Crunch, which says that a better name would have been a garage. This is because the unit…

NASA Releases Picture of Solar Eclipse Snapped 50 Years Ago by Apollo 12

​NASA’s Apollo 12 astronauts managed to capture an outstanding photo of a solar eclipse while they headed towards the Moon half of a century ago. The brightening outer side of the eclipsed Sun can be seen peering out from behind the Earth. Similar to a slim Crescent Moon, the Sun is almost impossible to see on the dark spread of space. NASA astronauts on board the racket that headed towards the Moon managed to snap this eclipse picture 50 years ago. Ambitious Aims The iconic Apollo 12 mission had astronauts…

NASA Is Preparing A Shapeshifting Robot Which Can Explore Other Planets

Why taking a human being to risk his health and making him invest effort, knowledge, training and a good portion of time from his life to travel to another planet in order to explore it, when you can instead leave the job for robots to do it and make them send to Earth the results found? That’s exactly what NASA has in mind. Of course, sending machines capable of gathering data to other planets is not something new for humanity at all, but this time it’s about a special kind…

NASA and Its Way to Identify Tsunamis With a Laser

Recently, reports from Chronicle.info explained how NASA succeeded in identifying tsunamis with the help of a laser. IceSat-2 is a laser which functionality reaches high demands. The space-based laser technology for Earth measurements has the skill to enter to a 40-foot depth of water on our planet. IceSat-2 resurfaced a year ago when NASA released a laser mission. The mission has the goal to study why the glaciers of Antarctica and Greenland are melting. The mission developed at the National Space Agency succeeded to reach another goal. The laser proved…

Mars Could House Underground Water, According To Recent NASA’s InSight Readings

In recent years, we’ve made impressive achievements in discovering what our neighbor planet, Mars, has to offer. Until now, we didn’t find life there, but, instead, NASA’s InSight recently made some exciting discoveries, including the potential presence of underground water and some mysterious magnetic pulses. Mars has been for many years a subject of debate for scientists worldwide, which were claiming that the Red Planet might have hosted life in the past. Some astronomers even believe that Martians have visited Earth in the early history of our planet. The recent…

NASA and ESA To Hit Asteroid ​Didymos B To Find Ways To Protect Us Against Asteroid Impacts

NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) are planning to examine our planet’s defenses to see whether we can effectually protect ourselves from the alleged asteroid impacts. However, all scientists can say so far is nothing. The space rock targeted for the space agencies’ plans is the asteroid Didymos B, which has a 160 meters diameter, and it is the twin of a binary asteroid system. Didymos B cycles the broader space rock Didymos A every 11.92 hours; this will apparently help shape the ultimate success or failure of the plan.…
