Astronauts say all-female spacewalk a sign of the times

  Astronauts say all-female spacewalk a sign of the times Historic spacewalk shows increasing diversity at NASA and across the science and technology world"For me, since it was my first spacewalk in general, it was an overwhelming and incredible feeling," Meir said in space-to-ground news conference. "The fact that I did it with another woman, and actually with my close friend and colleague Christina, really made it even more special.

If science fiction flicks have taught us anything, it's that when we eventually find an ultra-intelligent alien civilization they're going to have big When you think of aliens , it’s an image that immediately pops into your mind, and the Hubble Space Telescope just spotted something that looks eerily similar.

The Hubble Space Telescope recently spied new evidence of a peculiar molecule: wiggly buckyballs, which have intrigued astrophysicists since they were discovered in space nearly a decade ago. Buckyballs were first spotted in space in the form of a gas in 2010, and then as particles in 2012.

If science fiction flicks have taught us anything, it’s that when we eventually find an ultra-intelligent alien civilization they’re going to have big, oval-shaped heads and huge bulging eyes. When you think of aliens, it’s an image that immediately pops into your mind, and the Hubble Space Telescope just spotted something that looks eerily similar.

Hubble peered deep into space and there, sitting 704 million light-years from Earth, is a creepy face glaring at the rest of the cosmos. It’s bizarre and awesome, and its existence tells the story of a colossal collision between two galaxies a long, long time ago.

Humans can land on Mars by 2035, NASA chief says

  Humans can land on Mars by 2035, NASA chief says NASA chief Jim Bridenstine reiterated his stance that the space agency will be able to land humans on Mars in the 2030s, going so far as to say it could be done by the middle of that decade. "If we are accelerating the moon landing, we are accelerating the Mars landing," Bridenstine, NASA's Administrator, said during a panel discussion at the International Astronautical Congress, according to Space.com."I suggest we can do it by 2035," he added.

Scientists have unveiled plans for the High Definition Space Telescope. It will be 100 times more powerful than the Hubble Space Telescope. They say it could allow astronomers to spot They say it will allow them to delve far deeper into the universe than has ever been possible before while also

The galaxy system is labeled Arp-Madore 2026-424, but what it lacks in a flashy name it more than makes up for with its alien-like appearance. The “eyes” of the alien are the hearts of two galaxies which got a little too close for comfort, eventually resulting in a galactic collision that formed the vast star-forming ring structure that appears blue in the image.

There in the haze of gas and dust, new stars are being born. The two galaxies are still merging from our point of view, but eventually, they will become one, settling into a more stable orientation and enjoying the burst of newborn stars.

The side-by-side juxtaposition of the two central bulges of stars from the galaxies that we see here is also unusual. Since the bulges that form the “eyes” appear to be the same size, we can be sure that the two galaxies involved in the crash were of equal size. This is different from the more common collisions in which small galaxies are gobbled up by their larger neighbours.

This Is Your Brain (and Body) on Space

  This Is Your Brain (and Body) on Space We can't know everything yet, but we have some tantalizing clues about space's effect on the human body.As we get closer to returning to the moon, setting foot on Mars, and eventually colonizing other planets, one of the biggest questions we still face is exploring what prolonged space exposure does to the human body.

Scientists have seen the furthest thing that humans have ever seen — and it shouldn ’ t even be able to exist. A galaxy 13.4 billion light years away has been spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope. The new galaxy could lead scientists to question their understanding of the way that the universe evolved.

UFO-HUNTERS say they've found signs of an alien invasion in Google Earth snaps of Antarctica. The conspiracy nuts reckon they've found a grimacing face "It appears to be a massive, ancient structure of some kind of face that is being revealed for the first time on Google Earth,” Blake said in his video.

Because we’re so far away, it’s likely that the galaxy system looks a lot different today, but we’re seeing it as it existed 704 million years ago.

Galaxy collisions are incredibly interesting events to observe, and a similar collision will inevitably hit closer to home. At some point in the distant future, our own Milky Way galaxy will collide with the neighboring Andromeda galaxy, but we have a few billion years before we have to worry about that.

Voyager 2′s journey beyond the solar system reveals new cosmic secrets .
The Voyager 2 spacecraft spent more than four decades surfing the solar wind away from the sun and out into the galaxy. Then, in less than a day, the probe burst from our sun’s protective bubble out into an interstellar sea of alien particles. The exact shape of that bubble—which repels about 70 percent of harmful cosmic radiation—and how the inside mixes (or doesn’t mix) with the outside, are questions that have troubled researchers for decades.
