We're One Step Closer To Uncovering Secrets Of Ancient 'Centaur' Comets

Comets are a frequent and gorgeous occurrence in outer space, and a study recently outlined plans for how scientists could watch them be created in real-time. As it's been proven time and time again, the mysteries of space are continually fascinating. Planets in our Solar System have many stories to tell, faraway galaxies hold countless other secrets, and there's a constant drive in the science community to uncover as many of these as possible. Thanks to constantly advancing technology, each...

Images from NASA's Perseverance rover reveal that mysterious floods dragged boulders across Mars

NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover took this selfie on September 10, 2021. NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS NASA's Perseverance rover on Mars snapped photos of cliffs that show signs of ancient flash floods. The first study of Perseverance's data suggests that a flooding river dragged boulders for miles. The photos also pinpoint ancient river sediment in which the rover could search for fossilized life. In the dry Martian crater where NASA's Perseverance rover is searching for signs of long-g...

The Brilliant 19th-Century Astronomical Drawings of Étienne Léopold Trouvelot

The first photo of the moon was taken in 1850 by Louis Daguerre, from whom the daguerrotype gets its name. We have no idea what that first image looked like as it was lost in a studio fire. But the need to catalog the heavens with modern tools had started, and was both fascinating as it was lacking. Into this evolution of science and art stepped Étienne Léopold Trouvelot, the French immigrant, living in the States, an amateur scientist and an illustrator. He would dismiss photography of the hea...

Rocket Lab’s Mars mission gets green light from NASA

Rocket Lab is one step closer to going to Mars with NASA’s approval of the company’s Photon spacecraft for an upcoming science mission. If all continues according to plan the two craft will launch in 2024 and arrive on the Red Planet 11 months later to study its magnetosphere. The mission is known as the Escape and Plasma Acceleration and Dynamics Explorers, or ESCAPADE (hats off to whoever worked that one out), and was proposed for a small satellite science program back in 2019, eventually bein...
