Mars landforms show a bear in adorable Nasa satellite image

T he Red Planet’s rocky surface is pocked with craters, canyons, and volcanoes that make for an awe-inspiring sight. The unique topography can sometimes result in downright weird and even eerie landforms, like the human face illusion created by a rock formation that was captured by the Viking 1 spacecraft in 1976. Now, Nasa has …

Labrador crater with moon-like properties could be ‘training site’ for Artemis astronauts – National

When scientists determined in the mid-1970s that the Mistastin crater in Labrador had lunar-like properties, the last Apollo mission had flown and it was too late for astronauts to take advantage of the site for training. But now, as Artemis astronauts prepare for the next moon mission, one Canadian expert says the remote crater could …

It’s Not Sci-Fi—NASA Is Funding These Mind-Blowing Projects

Instead, with his “fluidic telescope” concept, one need only launch a frame structure—such as an umbrella-shaped satellite dish—and a tank of mirror liquid, like gallium alloys and ionic liquids. After launch, the liquid would be injected into the frame. In space, droplets stick together because of surface tension, and the pesky force of Earth’s gravity …

James Webb Space Telescope discovers its first Earth-sized exoplanet

It might be 41 light years away, but NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has discovered an exoplanet that is 99 per cent of Earth’s diameter, further opening the door for the discovery of a planet like our own. Key points: Exoplanet LHS 475 b is 41 light years away Among all operating telescopes, only …
