Extremely Delayed James Webb Space Telescope Delayed Again, Again

The upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, already seven years behind schedule, will not launch on Halloween as planned, which is just as well, given the ominous date and this project’s history of bad luck. For once, the delay is not due to the telescope, but rather the rocket that will deliver it to space.Read more...

What should humans take to space (and leave behind)? | Jorge Mañes Rubio

One day, humans will explore space en masse and live scattered across the solar system on planets like Mars and beyond. Inspired by his time as artist-in-residence at the European Space Agency, TED Fellow Jorge Manes Rubio wants to rethink what we need to bring on this grand journey -- and more importantly, what we should leave behind. Rubio takes us on an Earthbound journey through cultural practices and his own designs that blend science, art and ritual, encouraging a bold reimagining of what ...

Antarctica Gives Birth To World's Largest Iceberg (slashdot)

A giant slab of ice bigger than the Spanish island of Majorca has sheared off from the frozen edge of Antarctica into the Weddell Sea, becoming the largest iceberg afloat in the world, the European Space Agency said on Wednesday. From a report: The newly calved berg, designated A-76 by scientists, was spotted in recent satellite images captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, the space agency said in a statement posted on its website with a photo of the enormous, oblong ice sheet. Its surf...

New photo shows the oldest-ever spiral galaxy, which was formed at least 1 billion years earlier than previously thought

ALMA image of the galaxy BRI 1335-0417 at 12.4 billion years ago. ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO), T. Tsukui & S. Iguchi The ALMA telescope in Chile has captured a spiral galaxy that is 12.4 billion light years away. This is the oldest spiral galaxy known so far, breaking the record by a billion years. The findings provide clues on how spiral galaxies, like the Milky Way, formed after the Big Bang. See more stories on Insider's business page.

How space debris created the world’s largest garbage dump

Space debris is any human-made object that's currently orbiting Earth.When space debris collides with other space debris, it can create thousands more pieces of junk, a dangerous phenomenon known as the Kessler syndrome.Radical solutions are being proposed to fix the problem, some of which just might work. (See the video embedded toward the end of the article.)In 1957, the Soviet Union launched a human-made object into orbit for the first time. It marked the dawn of the Space Age. But when Sput...

China's Out-of-Control Rocket Plunges Out of Orbit, Crashes Into Ocean (slashdot)

An out-of-control Chinese rocket plunged out of orbit and reentered Earth's atmosphere in the Indian Ocean (just west of the Maldives), reports CNN, citing China's space agency: Most of the rocket was "destroyed" on reentry to the atmosphere, the space agency said. The rocket, which is about 108 feet tall and weighs nearly 40,000 pounds, had launched a piece of a new Chinese space station into orbit on April 29. After its fuel was spent, the rocket had been left to hurtle through space uncont...
