NASA’s TESS exoplanet hunter found its first Earth-size planet, but you wouldn’t want to visit

NASA’s TESS exoplanet hunter found its first Earth-size planet, but you wouldn’t want to visit NASA's TESS exoplanet hunting telescope has been on the job for less than a year, but it's already racking up some impressive discoveries. 

That would mean its mass is about five times that of Earth . Such a planet would probably have a thick, cloudy atmosphere and active volcanoes, Dr. Jenkins Dr. Queloz, now at the University of Cambridge in England, said at the news conference, “This is a great time we live in.” “If we keep working so well

NASA doesn’t say nothing can go above low Earth orbit. We just launched a satellite that is now way above low Earth orbit. That ’s where the ISS is orbiting. Every once in awhile the ISS needs a boost to stay up there because it tends, over a long period of time , to slow down due to the atmospheric drag.

When you’re planning on taking a trip it pays to plan ahead, and one of the first things you should do is check the weather forecast. The same is true for space travelers, and with so many missions in the works, NASA is now gazing ahead to see what the space weather forecast is looking like for the upcoming decade, and things appear to be shaping up rather nicely.

Using the most recent data on solar activity and a new predictive formula for forecasting peaks and valleys of solar weather, NASA says that we’re about to experience the calmest decade-or-so of the past two centuries, making right now the perfect time to plan crewed missions to other worlds.

Threat to earth posed by meteors must be taken seriously, NASA warns

Threat to earth posed by meteors must be taken seriously, NASA warns Meteors that could destroy an entire U.S. state or European country are a real threat to the earth, NASA's chief warned on Monday. Speaking at the Planetary Defense Conference in Washington, D.C., NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine warned that the risk posed by meteor crashes was not being taken seriously. "This is not about Hollywood, this is not about movies, this is about ultimately protecting the only planet we know right now to host life," he said.

PERTINENT FACTS: At the time when Don Pettit was in space as a NASA ISS astronaut, no space agency had a (super) heavy-lift rocket plus manned capsule designed and certified for missions beyond low Earth orbit (LEO). That is still the case, though in a few years our capability will be restored if

That means some solar days on Earth are a few minutes longer than 24 hours and some are a few Another way to measure a day is to count the amount of time it takes for a planet to completely spin On Earth , a sidereal day is almost exactly 23 hours and 56 minutes. We know how long an Earth day

As NASA explains in a new blog post, our star’s solar cycles last around 11 years, with periods of elevated activity occurring in predictable fashion. During highly active periods, sunspots are more common and coronal mass ejections blast charged particles into space.

It’s solar weather like this that NASA would very much like to avoid, as it would mean exposing astronauts to huge amounts of radiation from our star. Here on Earth, the planet’s magnetic field acts like a shield, but astronauts traveling into space wouldn’t have the same protection.

Using decades worth of data on solar activity and estimates, NASA researchers developed what they believe is a more accurate way of predicting the ebbs and flows of our star. The method has already been tested to predict the previous decade of space weather using existing data, and it “performed well,” according to NASA.

Knowing that the Sun is likely to behave itself while NASA and other groups carry out some of their most advanced missions yet won’t necessarily make exploration any easier, but at least it won’t make it any more difficult.
