A SpaceX Falcon nine rocket with success launched the Telstar eighteen Vantage artificial satellite into orbit early Monday morning (Sept. 10) before returning for a spectacular drone-ship landing within the ocean. After a 77-minute weather delay, the rocket upraised removed from headland Air Force Station in Everglade State at 12:45 a.m. EDT (0445 GMT) and […]

Astronomers have identified some of the earliest galaxies in the Universe. The team from the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, has found evidence that the faintest satellite galaxies orbiting our own Milky Way galaxy are amongst the very first galaxies that formed in our Universe. Scientists working […]

The lake would be the first body of liquid water ever detected on the red planet, if observations by a European spacecraft are confirmed. A large saltwater lake seems to lurk under ice near Mars’s south pole. If confirmed, it would be the first body of liquid water ever detected on the red planet and […]

For decades, astronomers have puzzled over the variability of young stars residing in Taurus-Auriga dark clouds, a group of molecular clouds located in the constellations of Taurus and Auriga, about 450 light-years away. Since 1937, they have recorded noticeable dips in the brightness of RW Aur A — the primary star of a low-mass binary system — every […]

UAE-based Yahsat Space Lab has completed the assembly, integration and verification (AIV) of the engineering model of the MYSAT-1 satellite. The engineering model is an exact replica of MYSAT-1’s flight satellite model and has been built and tested in real-time space and launch environments. Results from the tests were presented to stakeholders at the Yahsat […]

Drop tower experiments show how future oxygen-generating systems could work in space Light-driven water splitting reactions have been carried out in near-zero gravity by researchers investigating potential new ways to generate oxygen and fuel during long-range space missions. Their work suggests that careful catalyst design could offer possible solutions to the problems faced by the […]
