• NASA’s Juno completes its first orbital flyby of Jupiter

    NASA’s Juno mission successfully executed its first of 36 orbital flybys of Jupiter today. The time of closest approach with the gas-giant world was 6:44 a.m. PDT (9:44 a.m. EDT, 13:44 UTC) when Juno passed about 2,600 miles (4,200 kilometers) above Jupiter’s swirling clouds. At the time, Juno was...
  • Artificial Retina – Electronic Sight to the Blind

    For years, researchers have been working toward restoring even a small semblance of sight for the blind using artificial retinas using a technique called retinal prostheses. However, the images restored following a decade’s worth of studies are still far from being clear. Until now, that is. RETINAL PROSTHESES Retinal prosthesis involves...
  • “Tetrachromats” – living amongst us

    After more than 25 years of searching, neuroscientists in the UK recently announced that they’ve discovered a woman who has an extra type of cone cell – the receptor cells that detect colour – in her eyes. According to estimates, that means she can see an incredible 99 million...
  • China’s hypersonic spaceplane

    The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation is beginning advanced research on a high tech, more efficient successor to the retired Space Shuttle, with hybrid combined cycle engines that can take off from an airport’s landing strip and fly straight into orbit. The hybrid space plane’s combined cycle engines...
  • NASA – Future of deep space habitats

    NASA has selected six U.S. companies to help advance the Journey to Mars by developing ground prototypes and concepts for deep space habitats. Through the public-private partnerships enabled by theNext Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships-2 (NextSTEP-2) Broad Agency Announcement, Appendix A, NASA and industry partners will expand commercial development of...
  • Google brings free high speed Wifi for 2 million Indians

    We can still remember what has Google promised in 2015.Google’s head  Sundar Pichai promised free high speed Wifi at 100 railway stations across India. That project aims to give free internet and connect millions of passengers. So far Google has implemented free Wifi on 23 stations. Google CEO Sundar Pichai...
  • Cosmic Collisions – There are more than 635,000 craters on Mars

    Really beat up, according to a University of Colorado Boulder research team that in 2015 finished counting, outlining and cataloging a staggering 635,000 impact craters on Mars that are roughly a kilometer or more in diameter. As the largest single database ever compiled of impacts on a planet or moon in...

    NASA – Once upon a time Mars was as Earth?

    Chemicals found in Martian rocks by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover suggest the Red Planet once had more oxygen in its atmosphere than it does now. Researchers found high levels of manganese oxides by using a laser-firing instrument on the rover. This hint of more oxygen in Mars’ early atmosphere...
  • NASA Working to Improve SEP for Deep Space Exploration

    NASA has selected Aerojet Rocketdyne, Inc. to design and develop an advanced electric propulsion system that will enable deep space exploration missions. The Advanced Electric Propulsion System (AEPS) is a 36-month contract of total value of $67 million dollars. Its development could potentially increase spaceflight transportation fuel efficiency by...
  • Killing the Scientific Inquiry and Squeezing the Juice

    Scientific inquiry is one particular point that makes Humanity great. Proper scientific inquiry is what has made as great thought history until this moment in time. Humans are researchers and explorers. It is in our DNA. It can not be changed. But not everyone thinks or feels this way. Attorney...
