An international team of astronomers has found that the sun’s core rotates nearly four times faster than the sun’s surface. Previously, it was assumed that both the core and the outer surface were rotating at about the same speed.
The Fédération Aéronautique Internationale has demarcated the Karman Line - which lies at an altitude of 100 kilometers (330,000 feet; 62 miles) above the Earth's sea level - as the boundary where space begins. But, NASA spokesperson Dan Huot explains from a physical science’s perspective that “there is no hard-definable point where space begins; the atmosphere just gradually decreases the higher you get.”
NASA has shared the first-ever image of Jupiter’s ring taken from inside by Juno spacecraft during its initial science flyby over Jupiter's poles on August 27, 2016.
Zinnia becomes the first flower to ever grow in space. Astronauts are raising zinnias aboard the ISS, saying the process could be applied to tomatoes.
NASA has released a stunning 4K video of the Sun by putting together the images captured by Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which highlights a different temperature of solar material.
NASA confirms there is water on mars. This big announcement was made in accordance with "major science finding" from its exploration of Mars on Monday.
A team of astronomers led by Andrew Beardmore at the University of Leicester, U.K. have captured rings of X-ray light (resembling a shooting target) resulted due to black hole explosion in the centre of V404 Cygni, using the X-ray Telescope aboard NASA's Swift satellite. The team includes scientists from the Southampton, and Oxford in the U.K., … Continue reading Black Hole Explosion In Binary Star System Creates Shooting Target
Synchronous rotational motion of the Moon about its axis in about the same time it takes to orbit Earth is what keeps the other face of the moon away from the Earth and keeps the same face turned towards Earth.
NASA'S InSight Mars lander has started its assembly phase. The mission will provide unprecedented detail on evolution of Mars and other terrestrial planets.
