In recent days, the Mars Rover Curiosity deviated from its programmed route to examine a rock particularly rich in silica. It's a material composed of silicon and oxygen common in terrestrial rocks in the form of quartz. On Mount Sharp, where Curiosity is working, on its way it took a sample near the area called "Marias Pass". The results of the analysis were so interesting that the mission team decided to turn it back.

By far the most interesting thing about this info-graphic is discovering that each arm of our galaxy has its own name!

+Robert Pruitt​​ because the truly interesting objects are above or below the galaxy. well to be more precise, glactic objects block those objects that are behind it. When you make it small resolution of the galactic center but not see really deep objects such as quasars.

The discovery of Kepler-452b located 1400 light years from Earth's orbit offers stunning potential for exploration, and possibly, expansion to a new world.

But why red ? I always thought the icy worlds are in white .. its fascinating to see it resemble Mars rather than Moon ..

The question of whether we would find “another Earth” has plagued us for a long time. Now, we may finally be able to say, “We’ve found Earth 2.0”.

Really?
NASA’s Kepler spacecraft helped astronomers find an Earth-like planet about 1,400 light years away in an area where water could exist.

+Solomon Eraut last time someone posted this, someone just happened to 😚 comment.. This is the Nazi planet.. So we ordinary shmoes, i guess, are supposed to speculate that's where the Nazi Superman comes from. We so silly! We'll believe anything. Though i think it's more a problem of the shmoes out there who like to judge on appearances.

NASA has started posting 4K videos that show what life is like in orbit in exceptional detail. You can make out the finer details of clouds on Earth or see every last nuance of a zero-gravity water bubble.
NASA gives you a peek at the International Space Station in 4K video.

Scientists mission OSIRIS-REX hope to find organic asteroid Bennu
 (Phys.org)—In September 2016, NASA plans to launch its first-ever asteroid sample return mission loaded with tasks that will help us better understand the composition of asteroids, their origin, and possibly even Earth's origin. The Origins-Spectral Interpretation-Resource Identification-Security-Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) mission designed to study asteroids, which are the leftover debris from the solar system formation process, could teach us a lot about the history of the sun and planets

Meanwhile, on Ceres... New observations from the Dawn spacecraft indicate that the mysterious white spots appear to be sublimating material into space, creating a localized atmosphere within the walls of the 57-mile-wide (92 kilometers) hole in the ground.

Methinks, if they would not cut +NASA​'s budget all the time, we would know what these bright spots are by now.

As it is, Dawn's instruments are what they are and we are left speculating for a while still. They will figure it out eventually.

That Physicist in Omaha Is Still Working on a Warp Drive

Despite their DIY means, the team claims that by running a couple hundred watts through their array of custom-built, fractally patterned, V-shaped warp circuits, they’ve consistently documented the physical displacement of a 3 ½ pound weight in a Faraday cage (a container that blocks electromagnetic signals). They also say this is possible whether or not the object is magnetic. In principle, that shouldn’t be possible.

There are other interesting signs, like a compression detected in patterns of a laser beam passed through the electrical field, or a red-shift detected where Pares confidently says his device is compressing spacetime. Taking his experiments at face value, it is tempting, at least to the layman, to think Pares might actually be on to something with his homebrew hyperdrive.

Our first stepfoot over an Alien world!
#moon #wowseries
 
The true value of #Apollo11 is the story of innovation and teamwork that went into overcoming all the obstacles to land on the moon. That effort was driven in part by competition and scientific discovery and the natural need for humans to explore and push boundaries. WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND.

NASA Finds Earth-like 'Cousin' Planet

NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun-like star. This discovery and the introduction of 11 other new small habitable zone candidate planets mark another milestone in the journey to finding another “Earth.”
