Space, the black abyss that we humans have all but forgotten to look up at and marvel. Space, the favourite theme of Hollywood to make blockbuster movies on and indeed the final frontier of humanity.
I don’t know about you, but growing up, astronomy was a very intriguing subject for me. A part of the reason was that there was a ton of stuff we didn’t know about the universe and that was very exciting for me, because that meant we were seeking the answers.
We haven’t progressed much since then, inspite of learning a ton of new information and probably will need hundreds of thousands of years to even come close to knowing about even a meaningful amount of information about this unimaginably vast universe.
Therefore, it is important that we keep updated and as important as it is to learn new things, it is just as important to unlearn and relearn them. Not doing so is the reason why myths exist. Talking about my
Hey guys and gals.
I just found out about Steemit a couple days ago and couldn't wait to read more about it when I got some time over this weekend and, here we are, Saturday morning and I think this could be a great fit for me and looks like there is plenty of interesting stuff being posted by others as well to make for some interesting reads. I have been looking for a platform to share some of my work, hobbies, and other random thoughts, ideas and interests. My favorite class when I was in college at The University of Pennsylvania was my honors English class, which was all about writing persuasive arguments on a variety of topics, so I am looking forward to flexing the writing muscles again. Ok, let's get started!
For years I have been living in Philadelphia installing decorative concrete overlays and, as of the beginning of 2017, have been working with
Tabby star (KIC 8462852, also Boyajian's Star, by the name of its discoverer) is considered as one of main misteries in astronomy, during the last several years. At first sight this is normal star of the main sequence; spectral type is F3V (our Sun is G5 - Tabby is more yellowish-white, than yellow Sun), with mass 1.43 Msun and luminosity 4.68 times more than of Sun. It is located in the Cygnus constellation about 1300 light years away. Tabby star became famous in 2015, when team of astronomers, investgating data from space telescope Kepler, found, that the star changed its luminosity up to 20% during 2010 - 2013. These changes were irregular, what cannot be explained with existing theories. Times of changes varied from weeks to months.
Exoplanets cannot be responsible for this phenomena - even the largest transitting planets could dip it to several percent, be

After many thousands years shaping Earth's landscapes, now humankind began to change space environment. NASA mission Van Allen Probe found, that human activity has changed form of Van Allen radiation belts - two extreme and dynamic regions of space that surround Earth .
Val Allen Belts - a toroid, with two main regions. Internal region is located at heights from 1 to 6 thousands kilometers from Earth's surface and consists, mainly, of protons (Blue area). External region (pink) consists of electrons and located at heights 13 - 60 thousands km.
Analysis of data, obtained by pair of Van Allen Probes, researchers found, that generated by Earth's radio transmitters radio waves of Low freque
The twinkling world of stars has since always fascinated us. We had great astronomers like Aryabhatt, Bhaskara who unveiled many of the mysteries of the unknown world without any sophisticated instruments or tools at their disposal. The establishment of the Indian Space Research Organisation(ISRO) in 1962, thus, was but natural and crowning moment of our illustrious history of the space science. The skeptics criticized the vision and blamed for wasting the precious national resources when the nascent country was fighting to manage even two square meals a day. And today, the same ISRO is not only leading the nation to reach new heights but also helping other countries to launch their satellites.
In 2008, Indian exploration mission conquered the moon. Launched for mapping the lunar
Opportunity - the oldest martian rover still in service, has reached the main destination of its two-year extended mission - an ancient water-carved valley. This is a passway through the vast rim of the Endeavour Crater with the speaking name - Perseverance Valley. The way to Perseverance took two years.

The mechanism that formed Perseverance Valley billions of years ago, is still unknown. The possibilities are - water flow, turbulent mud slides, or even wind erosion. Opportunity will search answers.
The upper end of the valley is at a broad notch in the crest of the crater rim. The rover team's plan for investigating the area begins with taking sets of images of the valley from two widely separated points at that dip in the rim. Then, slowly, it will start desce
Light pollution affects our ability to see stars in the night sky. In many cities it is impossible to see the majority of stars, including most of the milky way. This makes it hard for astronomers of all kinds to do any kind of work in or a near a city. This is one of the reasons astrono
It seems that the universe is getting closer and closer. Jumping into outer space and looking at the earth from the outside, it has become a reality until every possible time anyone can pay for it. And mankind heads to Mars, and finally builds a colony settling on Mars....
For planning to migrate to Mars, Elon Musk led by S p a c e X and NASA, as well as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Middle East, has got a name for a girlfriend. That said, University of Information Technology and Management in advance the research of scientists Konrad Szocik are in a recently in Poland Rzeszow, the paper easily Mars migration of humanity to sound the alarm and should not recite has announced on the ScienceDirect.

There are three bodies in the Solar System, whose landscapes are formed by liquids: Earth, Mars and Titan. While Earth is water world, Mars was wet in the past, hydrosphere of Titan consists of liquid hydrocarbons. Outside of Earth, Titan is the only body in the Solar System with flowing rivers, lakes and seas, which are fed by rains.
The team of researchers from MIT and Caltech have published in the Science magazine new study "Global drainage patterns and the origins of topographic relief on Earth, Mars and Titan".
In the article researchers report that Titan, like Mars but unlike Earth, has not undergone any active plate tectonics in its recent past. The upheaval of mountains by plate tectonics deflects the paths that rivers take. The team found that this telltale signature was missing from river networks on Mars and Titan.

When the Navy wants to send a message to an underwater submarine, it sometimes uses very low frequency (VLF) radio waves. These long wavelengths, beamed from large towers on the ground, are unique in their ability to travel through salty water. But some end up in space instead. There, according to a new report, they may be forming a protective bubble around Earth’s atmosphere.
The discovery comes from the Van Allen Probes—two spacecraft, launched in 2012, that patrol the radiation belts surrounding Earth. The Van Allen radiation belts are zones where charged particles streaming from the sun get stuck in Earth’s magnetic field. These high energy protons and electrons can destroy a satellite’s electronics, which is a constant concern because the belts don’t always stay in one place.

During episode #138 of David Wilcock's GaiamTV show 'Wisdom Teachings at about the 8:00 mark, David shows a video that was captured from the ISS’s outward pointing HD camera on December 5th 2014 . Wilcock showed a video of the ISS feed that appeared to be RED laser hitting a sphere just outside of the Earth. Wilcock asserts that this was a weapon fired by a malevolent psychopathic global criminal cartel known as ‘the Cabal (likely shot from Pine Gap Australia which is joint US/AUS base with the secrecy like are 51). Wilcock asserts that when the Earth based laser shot the sphere, the sphere illuminated a glowing red but then redirected the weapon's beam back down to it's source apparently killing most everyone who had gathered for the event (what a pity huh?). If you haven't seen the video here it is…….. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4vwk6n7PSM
Wilcock didn't mention that NASA had actually addressed this event but they have acknowledging that the event actually occurred. They usually don't acknow

It is now established fact, that dry, cold and lifeless Mars, 3 billion years ago was wet planet with thick atmosphere and rich hydrosphere. In new study, published in Icarus, the team from the Smithsonian Institution and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory show that changes in the atmosphere on Mars made it rain harder and harder, which had a similar effect on the planet's surface as we see on Earth.

The study explains how the geologic processes associated with the modification of martian impact craters, which occurred throughout the Noachian period ( from 4 to 3 billion year ago) could be a result of the changing nature of rainfall as the primordial atmospheric pressure on Mars waned through time. In the beginning of the No
We know a lot more about our world and the universe then we did just 50 years ago. At the same time we know about a lot more things we don't know.
One of those things is closely connected to the creation of the universe: Is it the only one? Or are there more? Is there a multiverse?
Scientists now have found a strange area in space where the temperature is lower then expected.
This - based on the current standard model - should (with 98% confidence) not happen. There is a possible explanation though: The temperature difference may have been caused by a different universe that collided with ours not long after the creation.
Multiverse theories are frowned upon because they have too many explanations that cannot be falsified. Let's see what the physicians make out of this phenomenon.
Our tale begins in the future, many moons from today. Mars has been colonized! Titan of Saturn is also a colony; Jupiter’s moon Enceledus is a holiday resort destination and Pluto a research and development Laboratory. Several trading posts are located throughout the Solar System, from Neptune heading towards the outer reaches of the Oort cloud.
Earth is dead. Decimated from the A.I. Wars of the early 2000s. Only a handful of pocketed areas remain habitable. Yet, Earth is still considered prime real estate and the 139 year old clean up project is going well. Tacos, are also far more popular now than they have ever been before.
It wasn't long until I began to fidget. Three hours had passed in the waiting room since the unlucky guy was dragged in from the street and into the ER lobby. Bloody hell... he wasn’t looking very good.

The above photo is from October 2000 at the Kennedy Space Center of the Destiny module for the International Space Station.
The Destiny module was launched in February 2001 aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis. Once it was attached to the Unity module and activated, it became NASA's first permanent orbital research station since Skylab in 1974. This module is where the U.S. performs most of its research on board the ISS. At the time this module was added, it increased liveable space onboard the ISS by nearly 50%. Several years after Destiny was installed, the Harmony module was attached to the forward end of Destiny.
The sun is currently in a stage of low sun spots and huge coronal holes. The problem with these holes is that they emit an increased amount of radiation which allows more UV rays entering the atmosphere. These increased UV rays mean people will be getting sun burned a lot faster this summer.
I personally experienced this this past weekend when I was outside biking for a few hours and after I got home my back felt sun burned and I was wearing a t-shirt the whole time. I will definitely be putting the sun screen on this summer if I'm outside for long periods of time. It might be the first time ever in my life I wear sun screen and a shirt at the same time.
The Outer Space Treaty considers Outer Space to be the “common heritage of mankind”. It belongs to all of us.
The Moon and other celestial bodies are to be used for peaceful purposes, there is to be no installation of weapons of mass destruction on the Moon, celestial bodies or anywhere else in outer space. “Establishment of military bases, installations and fortifications, weapons testing and military maneuvers on celestial bodies” are forbidden. The Moon may be used for scientific research or any other peaceful purpose for the benefit of all countries without claim to it's sovereignty.
Although the Outer Space Treaty states that outer space isn't subject to national appropriation, it doesn't mention whether or not a private individual or company may own parts of outer space. The UN’s error in not realizing the [Moon
