The problem of how to power spaceships for long journeys into space could have just been solved by an astronomer at Columbia University in New York, David Kipping. His idea:
To power spaceships up to the size of whole planets, you can harness the extreme gravitational forces of black holes with a “halo drive,” a boomerang of photons shot from a laser. No more running out of fuel, it’s easy “light sailing” so long as… Seguir leyendo
The largest human sacrifice in history took place thousands of years ago in ancient Peru
to appease the gods after a climatic phenomenon.
The new study detailing what is considered by experts the largest mass sacrifice discovered to date is the result of six years of excavation work at the site from 2011 to 2016.
When the discovery was made, researchers had no idea what could have driven such a dramatic, large-scale human sacrifice.But… Seguir leyendo
The answer to the question of how life came into existence remains a scientific mystery to this day.
While experts agree on prevailing theories, we are yet to fully understand how life on Earth started, and where it came from.
And in an effort to understand as much as possible the origin of life, NASA Astrobiologists turned to their laboratory to answer some of the fundamental questions about life and its origins.
Scientists tell us… Seguir leyendo
“The Orb”. “The Globe”. “Globalization”… son todo diferentes acepciones para un mismo concepto: esa globalización que entrelazó (casi) todas las economías del planeta, y que luego fue objeto de las iras de aquel presidente Trump. Él desató esas iras durante la campaña electoral que le llevó finalmente a la Casa Blanca.
Sea porque la globalización ya no es lo mismo sin el empuje de Estados Unidos tras la guerra del “aranceles para todos”, sea porque… Seguir leyendo
The fact that Mars was a planet eerily similar to Earth is no surprise any longer.
But just how similar was it to our homeworld? Did the red planet once have oceans, lakes, and rivers? Did it have vegetation? And is it possible that life once existed in the now, barren and dry alien world?

The new moon, which has been named after a sea creature from classical mythology, has a diameter of about 34 kilometers, and it orbits Neptune.
Although the moon wasn’t recently discovered (it was actually spotted in 2013), only now have researchers revised data and officially named and classified it as a new moon.
In the summer of 2013, astronomer Mark Showalter was studying images snapped by the Hubble Space Telescope in the space near Neptune.… Seguir leyendo
The RemoveDEBRIS satellite, one of the first attempts to address the accumulation of hazardous space debris, has successfully used its harpoon capture system in orbit and started collecting trash.
Space debris has become a massive problem for humans.
In fact, the amount of trash currently orbiting our planet is posing a grave threat to future missions to Mars and the moon.
According to reports from NASA, there are more than 500,000 pieces of junk

The Chinese Academy of Space Technology is working on a revolutionary solar plant.
But to take advantage of the energy our sun has to offer, China will go to space and try and construct a massive solar power plant that will help the Asian country harness solar energy in space, and then beam it back to Earth.
Building a massive solar power plant in space has a number of advantages and has very few limitations.… Seguir leyendo

The prospects for long-term life on Earth seem to be looking more and more in doubt
due to climate change and nuclear war. Meanwhile, President Trump, although an apparent non-believer in climate change, has directed NASA
to “enable human expansion across the solar system,” concentrating on manned missions to the moon and mars. It seems mankind may not be able to effectively plan for sustained life on Earth, but trust they are already planning
