Scientists To Turn The Moon Into A Giant Particle Detector

Scientists To Turn The Moon Into A Giant Particle Detector

Scientists have already detected super-rare particles such as the Oh-My-God particle on Earth. But it’s really hard to detect the origin of those super-rare particles. So now, scientists have planned to turn the Moon into a giant particle detector which they believe will be helpful to detect Ultra-High-Energy (UHE) cosmic rays – the most energetic particles in the Universe.

Pluto – Planet Or Not? Scientists In Great Debate

Pluto – Planet Or Not? Scientists In Great Debate

Once, it was considered that there were 11 planets in our solar system. Now, it is considered that there are actually 8 planets (Pluto, Ceres and Eris are considered as dwarf planets) in our solar system. But now, the very interesting thing is, some scientists have jumped into a debate, claiming that Pluto is a planet.

A Researcher Mathematically Proves Black Holes Don’t Exist

A Researcher Mathematically Proves Black Holes Don’t Exist

Black holes are so entwined in the established scientific narrative these days that it’s easy to forget that their existence is still completely theoretical. No black hole has ever been directly observed. Even famous physicist Stephen Hawking has said that there are no black holes. And now, a researcher has mathematically proved that black holes really don’t exist.

Space Dust Casts Shadow On Big Bang Theory?

Space Dust Casts Shadow On Big Bang Theory?

In March of this year, a team of scientists announced that they had found evidence of primordial gravitational waves, hypothesized ripples in spacetime whose existence would suggest that the universe did indeed expand many times faster than the speed of light in the first few instants after the Big Bang. But a new report has cast doubt on the Big Bang theory.

NASA To Launch 3D Printer To ISS First Time On September 19

NASA To Launch 3D Printer To ISS First Time On September 19

Space agency NASA has created a 3D printer in collaboration with Mountain View, California-based company Made in Space Inc. This 3D printer has the size of a small microwave and is mainly designed as a proof of concept to see if printing in zero gravity can create objects that are as accurate and as strong as those produced by a printer on Earth.

NASA To Reformat Mars Rover Opportunity’s Memory From Earth

NASA To Reformat Mars Rover Opportunity’s Memory From Earth

Like any computer on Earth, long-duration space robots’ memories sometimes need to be reformatted. This is certainly the case for NASA’s Mars exploration rover Opportunity that has had more than its fair share of computer glitches recently. So now, NASA has decided to reformat Opportunity’s memory from Earth.

NASA Placing A Tiny 3D Printed Space Camera Into CubeSats

NASA Placing A Tiny 3D Printed Space Camera Into CubeSats

NASA is experimenting with small space cameras made almost entirely of 3D printed parts. The technology the agency is using is a bit different from the 3D printing you might be familiar with if you’ve used consumer printers. Like 3D printing with exuded plastic, the pieces are built layer by layer, from the bottom up.
