Juno’s onboard science instrument Juno Waves “listened” to radio emissions coming from the side of Jupiter’s magnetic field and gave scientists the opportunity to determine the boundaries of the regions with radiation.
Join us as we explore the cosmos and some of the most interesting cosmic bodies (places) in the universe.
Planetary scientists working with the seismograph SEIS of the Martian automatic station InSight have published new results of the analysis…
For the first time, astronomers have reliably registered the presence of a dusty Moon-forming disc around a protoplanet in an exoplanetary system. This was done thanks to the ALMA radio telescope, which observed the system of the young star PDS 70.
While our attention was preoccupied with Ingenuity’s historical flights in the rough Martian atmosphere, the rover found its way to the planned research location about a kilometer south of the landing site. It is almost time to begin its search for signs of ancient life on Mars.
An international group of scientists who are directly studying the relic radiation, in the course of their next study, suggested that the universe can exist in two forms, previously little known to science.
In addition to the four large Galilean moons, Jupiter has many smaller moons, up to a kilometer in size. Today, 79 of them are known, but there is no doubt that the giant planet has other small satellites that we have not yet noticed. One such was recently discovered by amateur astronomer Kai Ly, bringing the total to exactly eighty.
The Russian-European probe “ExoMars-TGO” did not detect even minimal traces of methane and two other hydrocarbons emitted by representatives of terrestrial life in the atmosphere of Mars.
An interdisciplinary team of scientists analyzed data from the Curiosity rover and identified the location of an unknown source of methane emissions, particles of which were previously recorded in the atmosphere of the Red Planet and intrigued the researchers.
Although humankind has still not developed the necessary technology to travel to the outermost parts of our solar system, we…
The Event Horizon Telescope has obtained the most detailed image of relativistic jets erupting from the core of the Centaurus A radio galaxy. It turned out that the structure of the jets closely resembles the jet in the active galaxy M87 on a scale of up to five hundred gravitational radii of a black hole.
Researchers have published a series of photographs of the surrounding galaxies revealing stunning detailing resembling what astronomers have described as…
Earlier this year, astronomers announced the discovery of a massive object from the Oort Cloud that appeared to be the largest to date. Fast-forward a few weeks and we already know that the object is a gargantuan-sized comet – C/2014 UN271. the largest comet ever discovered.
Observations have shown that carbon-13 isotopes are present in the atmosphere of the planet TYC 8998-760-1 b, which have never been discovered on a planet outside the solar system in the past.
The American company Masten Space Systems will develop a lunar navigation system based on surface radio beacons. The device in lunar orbit will drop beacons to the surface that will be adapted for a hard landing and will be able to provide positioning for other satellites and spacecraft in lunar orbit, without the use of terrestrial navigation systems.
On International Asteroid Day, which is celebrated annually on June 30, the UN draws attention to the need to protect…
In a recent publication, the architecture agency SOM revealed their concept for a Moon Village, developed in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Planetary scientists have proposed a possible explanation for the nature of Venusian phosphine without involving the activity of microorganisms. The emergence of this potential biomarker is assumed to be responsible for plume volcanism, which is still active on Venus.
Nearly three months after its first flight, the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter continues to make history on Mars in its extended mission. What began as a test program has now become a “tradition” that re-occurs once every two weeks.
Researchers have found new evidence for rogue planets that fly freely in space, rather than revolving around parent stars such…
A team of researchers from University College London and the Chinese Academy of Sciences has tracked down the source of the bright X-rays that flash on Jupiter every few minutes. Thus, they unraveled the mystery of this phenomenon, the reasons for which remained unknown for the last 40 years. We finally understand Jupiter’s auroras.
Scientists have found that the possibility to breathe “with a full chest filled with oxygen” became appeared about 2.5 billion years ago and was caused by the impacts of city-sized asteroids.
According to scientists, the existence of methane in Enceladus plumes they found may be a sign of the existence of life. They hypothesize that an unknown process of methane production may be taking place in the ocean of Enceladus hidden under the ice shell.
