Scientists believe that the key to discovering extraterrestrial life could lie deep in the festering, underground oceans of Jupiter’s ice-covered moon Europa. New research suggests that if the salt water ocean beneath the surface of the frigid moon ever makes it's way to the surface, creating an intergalactic petri dish capable of producing a life-promoting environment.
A giant asteroid the size of a football field is scheduled to pass through Earth’s atmosphere over the weekend. Scientists say that the 330-foot-wide fiery rock will miss striking the Earth’s surface by nearly 600,000 miles - about three times the distance between our planet and the moon.
An entrepreneur with more money than God has decided that he wants to be one of the first men to complete a mission to mars. And while this space crusader with deep pockets may have the cash flow to pull of such an ambitious undertaking, some believe that he may have spread himself too thin by announcing plans to get his journey underway by 2018.
The technological world could soon be brought to its knees by a series of pseudo-apocalyptic space storms that are predicted to sever the heads of the world’s communication centers, satellites, and public transportation systems.
The Red Planet has a fairly strong reputation when it comes to solar system dynamics. For us, Mars is the fourth planet from the sun, just a little too cold to sustain life, and according to one famous self-help book, the planet men come from.
Imagine being an astronaut on a mission who’s stuck with the same old food for weeks or months (it’s not like you can call out for pizza).
Like most people who are faced with similar dining choices day after day, you’d likely eat less — and that’s a concern for scientists. So they’re recruiting volunteers to help them test out edible fare in preparation for a future mission.
