A Massive Supernova Outburst will Appear in the Sky Predict Astronomers

  • nemesis maturity Published on Aug 17, 2018
    A dazzling supernova will appear in the sky, predict astronomers. Scientists have studied a binary star system for years and claim it will explode. The supernova explosion will be one of brightest star in the night sky when it appears, astronomers say. Two stars, which are actually a contact binary (two stars that orbit each other, and also share a common atmosphere), about 1,800 light-years away in the Cygnus constellation, will merge and explode around 2022, and the event, which will lead to the formation of a red nova, will be visible to the naked eye when it occurs. If this scientific prediction turns out to be right, not just astronomers but everyone on Earth will be able to witness an unusual and fascinating celestial event about four years from now, without the use of any scientific instruments. Contact binary star KIC 9832227 is predicted to merge and explode into a red nova in 2022. Read more here:

  • Life on Mars Could Be Found Within THREE YEARS Astrobiologist Says After Breakthrough
    by CIARAN MCGRATH, https://www.express.co.uk/
    COMPELLING evidence of life on Mars could be found within three years, a NASA scientist has predicted after two major discoveries.

    Scientists are on the brink of a breakthrough in space exploration following the discovery of a lake of water on the Red Planet’s surface coupled with the identification of fluctuations in methane levels consistent with organic processes.

    Professor Vladimir Airapsetian made his exciting prediction to Express.co.uk in the wake of the two exciting discoveries unveiled last month.

    First NASA revealed that its Curiosity rover had discovered small but significant changes in the level of methane in the Martian atmosphere depending on seasons, which on Earth are usually a result of biological emissions and as such, an indication of life.

    Second, the Marsis radar instrument on board the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter was used to identify a lake located under the planet’s south polar ice cap, which is thought to be about 12 miles in diameter.

    Addressing the subject of the lake, Professor Airapetian said: “In my opinion, this study is particularly important given the recent evidence of fossils found in mantle rocks about half a mile below the ground (or the ancient seafloor) of the Iberian continental margin off the coast of Spain and Portugal in 1993.

    “This drilling project on Earth strongly suggests that microbial life survives in harsh environments where water is available.  “The current study based on MARS Express radar data suggests the presence of standing bodies of water (or a lake) at depths of about 1 mile below the South Pole Layered Deposits.

    “The radar method of identification of subsurface Martian lake was previously use to identify the lake beneath the ice in Antarctica and Greenland.”

Perseid Meteor Shower Set to Light Up the Night Sky this Weekend

  • nemesis maturity Published on Aug 7, 2018
    The best meteor shower of the year peaks Aug. 11th-13th when Earth passes through a stream of debris from giant comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. NASA’s network of all-sky meteor cameras is already picking up strong activity over the USA, counting 86 Perseid fireballs during the four day period Aug. 4th-7th. http://spaceweather.com/

    The Perseids are often the most impressive Meteor Shower of the year for the Northern Hemisphere. The Perseids offers a consistently high rate of meteors every year and it occurs in August when the temperatures are usually nice enough for a night under the stars! Each July and August the Earth encounters debris left behind from comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. This comet has an orbit of 133 years and last entered the inner solar system in 1992. Even though the comet now lies in the outer portions of the solar system, far away from Earth, we still encounter debris that has been left behind during the many trips this comet has made through the solar system.

The Search for Planet Nine | Masao Sako

  • TEDx Talks Published on May 31, 2018
    Dr. Sako is currently hunting for the putative giant planet — Planet Nine — that might be lurking in the outskirts of our Solar System. Planet Nine, if real, could be as large as ten Earth masses, but will only appear as a faint little dot due to its vast distance from the Sun. Dr. Sako and students use supercomputers to sift through the many millions of detections and background stars, galaxy, and other minor bodies in the solar neighborhood. Its discovery and nature will teach us about the history and formation of our Solar System. Masao Sako is an astrophysicist using large telescopes, supercomputers, and big data to study the Universe. He is the recipient of numerous teaching awards at the University of Pennsylvania, including the Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching and the Dean’s Award for Innovation in Teaching. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Italian Scientist Suggests Life on Mars Exists Even Now

  • Italian Scientist Suggests Life on Mars Exists Even Now
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    A team of Italian researchers has discovered a salt lake on Mars using the Marsis radar on board the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter. Sputnik spoke with Roberto Orosei, a researcher at the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica and the Marsis’ scientific director, to find out how important the discovery is for the future of humankind.

    Sputnik: 
    The news about your discovery has spread throughout the world. It’s the first confirmation of the presence of water on Mars. What exactly does the discovery mean?

    Roberto Orosei: 
    This is a subglacial lake, similar to those in the Arctic Region or Greenland, such as Lake Vostok, which is the Arctic’s largest subglacial lake. The Martian lake is located under a kilometer and a half of ice and it was discovered thanks to a radar similar to those used to study the glaciers on Earth. This type of radar is able to penetrate below the surface and obtain echoes from the material under the ice.


    In that case, the water was recognizable because it better reflects the radio waves. When the radar is over a subglacial lake, the echoes coming from the bottom suddenly become very strong and even stronger than the echoes coming from the surface of the ice.

The Perseids: Astronomers Prepare for Earth to ‘Plow’ into Fiery Meteor Shower

  • The Perseids: Astronomers Prepare for Earth to ‘Plow’ into Fiery Meteor Shower
    by https://www.rt.com/
    A glowing shower of meteorites is set to light up the night skies this August as hundreds of burning space rocks wipe out in Earth’s atmosphere, much to the delight of stargazers across the globe.

    The Perseids is a prolific shower of fiery space particles that has streaked over our planet annually for generations as Earth encounters debris falling off the Swift-Tuttle comet, which was first discovered back in 1862. The gleaming debris is generally first seen in mid-July in the northern hemisphere but enters a particularly sweet period of viewing for amateur stargazers between August 11-13, 2018. According to NASA, the peak period happens around a moonless night when the sky is darker than normal.

    “Unlike most meteor showers, which have a short peak of high meteor rates, the Perseids have a very broad peak, as Earth takes more than three weeks to plow through the wide trail of cometary dust,” said Jane Houston Jones, of the US space agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    “The Perseids appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus, visible in the northern sky soon after sunset this time of year. Observers in mid-northern latitudes will have the best views.”

A Gigantic Rogue Planet Wandering Our Galactic Neighbourhood JUST Discovered

  • nemesis maturity Published on Aug 3, 2018
    There is a very strange object floating around our stellar neighbourhood and it has astronomers intrigued. Astronomers using the National Science Foundation’s Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) have made a radio-telescope detection of a planetary-mass object beyond our Solar System. The object, about a dozen times more massive than Jupiter, is a surprisingly strong magnetic powerhouse and a “rogue,” traveling through space unaccompanied by any parent star. At just 20 light years from home, this marks the first planetary-mass object that has ever been detected using radio telescopy. But only just. At 12.7 times more massive than Jupiter, it’s right on the upper limit for planets – verging into brown dwarf territory. “This object is right at the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf, or ‘failed star,’ and is giving us some surprises that can potentially help us understand magnetic processes on both stars and planets,” said astronomer Melodie Kao of Arizona State University. The research has been published in The Astrophysical Journal. http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10….

US Government Silent As Mystery Meteor Explodes Nearly Over US Air Force Base

  • US Government Silent As Mystery Meteor Explodes Nearly Over US Air Force Base
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    On August 01, the director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists, Hans Kristensen, tweeted: “Meteor explodes with 2.1 kilotons force 43 km (26 miles) above missile early warning radar at Thule Air Base.”

    Kristensen quoted a tweet that originated from “Rocket Ron” (@RonBaalke), whose profile allegedly indicates he is a scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a federally funded research and development center and NASA field center in La Cañada Flintridge, California. The original tweet on July 31 said: ” A fireball was detected over Greenland on July 25, 2018 by US Government sensors at an altitude of 43.3 km (43 miles). The energy from the explosion is estimated to be 2.1 kilotons.”

Scientists Find Lake of “Liquid Water” on Mars

  • Channel 4 News Published on Jul 25, 2018
    There’s a lake on Mars, it’s been revealed today. It’s not very big, but it is described as a proper body of liquid water probably around 22 metres wide and at least a metre deep. Scientists from the National Institute for Astrophysics say it’s the first conclusive proof that H2O exists there currently, even though there’s evidence of it having been there in the past. Water, of course, is a prerequisite for life as we know it.. Ed Howker has the details, and we talk to astrobiologist Manish Patel and Tom Kerss, an astronomer based at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Huge Underground Lake Found On Mars, Raising The Possibility Of Life

  • DAHBOO777 Published on Jul 25, 2018

  • Underground lake found on Mars, raising possibility of life
    by Will Dunham, https://www.reuters.com/
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Using a radar instrument on an orbiting spacecraft, scientists have spotted what they said on Wednesday appears to be a sizable salt-laden lake under ice on the southern polar plain of Mars, a body of water they called a possible habitat for microbial life.

    The reservoir they detected — roughly 12 miles (20 km) in diameter, shaped like a rounded triangle and located about a mile (1.5 km) beneath the ice surface — represents the first stable body of liquid water ever found on Mars.

    Whether anywhere other than Earth has harbored life is one of the supreme questions in science, and the new findings offer tantalizing evidence, though no proof. Water is considered a fundamental ingredient for life.

    The researchers said it could take years to verify whether something is actually living in this body of water that resembles a subglacial lake on Earth, perhaps with a future mission drilling through the ice to sample the water below.

    “This is the place on Mars where you have something that most resembles a habitat, a place where life could subsist,” said planetary scientist Roberto Orosei of Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica in Italy, who led the research published in the journal Science.

    “This kind of environment is not exactly your ideal vacation, or a place where fish would swim,” Orosei added. “But there are terrestrial organisms that can survive and thrive, in fact, in similar environments. There are microorganisms on Earth that are capable of surviving even in ice.”
