Our planet consists of a finite number of resources that will eventually run out. This is why many are starting to turn towards creating alternative, more sustainable technology, like relying on solar or kinetic energy, and so on. However, it is possible that maybe one day, we would need to seek out living arrangements on a completely different planet.
There are many challenges that come with sending people into space, one of which is actually protecting the astronauts that are being sent there from issues such as radiation. Given that when in space, astronauts are not protected by the Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic field, naturally we wouldn’t want them to come back irradiated.
Ever wondered how fast a car could potentially go if it had rocket thrusters installed on them? We’re not sure how safe it would be, but thanks to @Pslavi on Twitter, he has put together a concept video that uses a bit of video editing to imagine how fast a Tesla Roadster could go (and what it looks like) if it had SpaceX thrusters fitted onto it.
How was the universe formed? That is a question that many are no doubt curious about. Do planets suddenly just pop into existence? Or were they always there? Now thanks to recent observations made with the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, scientists might have a better idea.
Thanks to our Earth’s atmosphere, a lot of space junk and meteors burn up during entry, thus protecting the rest of us from any real major damage. However, sometimes things don’t always go to plan, such as the case when part of a Chinese rocket re-entered our atmosphere and did not burn up completely.
When we watch movies that are based in space, there’s almost a 100% certainty that it was shot in some movie studio with a green/blue screen, along with a ton of CGI. However, it seems that if both NASA and actor Tom Cruise have their way, those screens may no longer be necessary.
Are UFOs real? Over the decades we have come across various stories, photos, and videos that allegedly show UFOs, but it’s hard to tell if those photos and videos are the real deal. For those who wonder if there might life on other planets or galaxies, it’s starting to look like we might not be alone.
Space is a vast and open place that is still largely unexplored by humans due to the current limitations of our technology. In fact, we are probably in our infancy when it comes to understanding space and knowing what is out there, but it seems that we are taking steps to figure it out.
The search is on for planets that are inhabitable because due to the finite number of resources we have on Earth, it is possible that one day in the future we might need to seek other planets in order to keep on living. Some planets such as Mars have been proposed as a possibility, but now scientists have discovered another potential.
Oxygen is extremely important because without it, we would be dead. This is also extremely important when we are looking at potential space travel and maybe finding new planets to inhabit. Now it looks like maybe in the very, very distant future, should we ever find ourselves traveling to another galaxy, there is a chance we might survive there too.
You would think that following a nuclear fallout that things in the area would be survive, let alone thrive. However, back in 1991, scientists discovered a strand of fungi that apparently fed off the radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, and now fast forward to today, they have discovered that this strand of fungi could have potential use for space travel.
Come 2024, NASA has plans to send astronauts to the moon as part of the organization’s Artemis project. To do so, NASA is building a rocket as part of its Space Launch System which they have recently shown off where they are calling it the most powerful rocket ever built. According to NASA, they claim that this rocket will be able to pack a multitude of things including Orion, astronauts, […]
If you’re not comfortable with the idea of animals being killed for their meat, or if you believe that our growing consumption and demand for meat is leading to negative changes in our environment and climate, then you might be aware that work is being done on “growing” meat in laboratories, where scientists attempt to recreate meat using science.
The problem with travel is that sometimes it involves long flight times. Unless you can afford the comforts of business class, safe to say that no one truly enjoys being stuck on an 8-12 hour flight in the cramped seats of economy. However, the good news is that this discomfort could soon be reduced somewhat.
