Will you see the Humanity Star? - Prelaunch photo of the Humanity Star and Rocket Lab’s CEO Peter Beck, via Rocket Lab. Even though professional astronomers are mad about it, I love the name Humanity Star, and I’m fine with the idea behind its launch. That’ll remain true even if I never see it. This satellite – a 3-foot (one-meter) geodesic sphere, made up of 65 highly reflective carbon fiber panels – got a lot of media attention around the time of its January 21, 2018, launch, and it’s sti...

New algorithm can pinpoint mutations favored by natural selection in large sections of the human genome - A team of scientists has developed an algorithm that can accurately pinpoint, in large regions of the human genome, mutations favored by natural selection. The finding provides deeper insight into how evolution works, and ultimately could lead to better treatments for genetic disorders. For example, adaptation to chronic hypoxia at high altitude can suggest targets for cardiovascular an...

Astronomers reveal secrets of most distant supernova ever detected - An international team of astronomers, including Professor Bob Nichol from the University of Portsmouth, has confirmed the discovery of the most distant supernova ever detected – a huge cosmic explosion that took place 10.5 billion years ago, or three-quarters the age of the Universe itself.

When Tesla founder Elon Musk and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos began testing reusable rockets, few understood the significance of what they were trying to achieve. Now that Musk's company SpaceX is routinely re-launching used Falcon 9 boosters — not to mention the Falcon Heavy, which launched Feb. 6 with three times the payload of the space shuttle — the feat seems practically mundane. It's the new normal. But these launches are nothing short of extraordinary. The rise of reusable rockets is a revolution on par with the invention of the sail or the steam engine: It will change everything.

One solution of depression is to take a medication prescribed by a doctor, however, many of these are addictive and have side effects, such as insomnia, nausea or emotional numbness. So, you may want to try a natural treatment first to see if your symptoms subside.

Why Didn’t Black Panther Feature Soul Stone Ahead Of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War?: While fans are enjoying “Black Panther” and making it another Marvel film hit, many were left wondering why there was no reference to the last Infinity Stone as that film is getting closer. “Avengers: Infinity War” will launch a two-film saga which serves as a conclusion of sorts to ten years of Marvel films and http://dlvr.it/QH47wM #Entertainment #b2c, #b2b, #seo #b2c

“We absolutely cannot let this project go down without a fight. If WFIRST gets cancelled, it’s a sign that even the most important NASA project, as determined by internal, external, and independent reviewers, is subject to political whims. These projects take more than a single presidency to design, approve, build, and launch. Federal funding for these vital missions that enhance all of society must not be allowed to disappear because one human — even if it’s the president — wills it. The joys, wonder, knowledge, and benefits that come from exploring and understanding the Universe are greater than any individual.”

When it comes to NASA, there are three main functions that make up the overwhelming majority of its budget: science, exploration, and space operations. Within science, the largest and most important missions, spread across planetary science, astrophysics, Earth science and heliophysics, are known as flagship missions. According to Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate of NASA, “What we learn from these flagship missions is why we study the Universe. This is civilization-scale science… If we don’t do this, we aren’t NASA.” When someone (ahem… Trump) comes in, after decades of planning, and proposes to scrap an already-designed flagship mission, it threatens to end science-as-we-know-it at NASA.

The United States must not cede leadership in the space and science arena to Japan, Russia, Europe, China, India and Canada the same way it did with the superconducting supercollider 25 years ago. This time, humanity’s capability of understanding the entire Universe is what’s at stake.

Opportunity Just Saw its 5,000th Sunrise on Mars - It’s been a time of milestones for Mars rovers lately! Last month (on January 26th, 2018), NASA announced that the Curiosity rover had spent a total of 2,000 days on Mars, which works out to 5 years, 5 months and 21 days. This was especially impressive considering that the rover was only intended to function on the Martian surface for 687 days (a little under two years). But when it comes to longevity, nothing has the Opportunity rover beat...

"Lyman-alpha emission detected around quasar J1605-0112"

"Using the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument astronomers have discovered an extended and broad Lyman-alpha emission in the form of a nebula around the quasar J1605-0112. The finding is reported February 9 in a paper published on the arXiv pre-print repository.

J1605-0112 is a radio-quiet quasar at a redshift of 4.92. Astronomers have classified this object as one of the broad absorption line (BAL) quasars. Although BAL quasars have been studied for over 30 years, researchers are still uncertain why broad absorption lines are observed in such objects.

In order to understand this phenomenon, a European team of astronomers led by Michele Ginolfi of the Rome Observatory, Italy, has conducted an observation campaign using the MUSE wide integral field spectrograph installed on ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile. They employed this instrument to reveal more insights into the nature of BAL quasars and to analyze Lyman-alpha emission surrounding such objects.

MUSE observations carried out by Ginolfi's team resulted in identifying a Lyman-alpha emission around J1605-0112, forming a nebula surrounding this quasar."
