  • Pic­tures from Curios­i­ty Show the Bot­tom of an Ancient Lake on Mars, the Per­fect Place to Search for Evi­dence of Past Life
    It’s all about the detail. In a way, Mars looks like a dusty, dead, dry, bor­ing plan­et. But sci­ence says oth­er­wise. Sci­ence says that Mars used to be wet and warm, with an atmos­phere. And sci­ence says that it was wet and warm for bil­lions of years, eas­i­ly long enough… Read more »
  • NASA is Build­ing Robots That Can Climb Rock and Ice Cliffs
    Engi­neers at NASA JPL are busy devel­op­ing next-gen­er­a­­tion robot­ic mis­sions that will allow astro­nauts to explore hard­er-to-reach places in the search for life. The post NASA is Build­ing Robots That Can Climb Rock and Ice Cliffs appeared first on Uni­verse Today. Read more »
  • Hayabusa 2 is the First Space­craft to Sam­ple the Inside of an Aster­oid
    Japan’s Hayabusa 2 space­craft is now the first space­craft to retrieve a sub­sur­face sam­ple from an aster­oid. On July 11th, the space­craft touched down for a sec­ond time on aster­oid 162173 Ryugu. This time, the probe retrieved a sam­ple from a crater it exca­vat­ed with its impactor. The sub­sur­face sam­pling… Read more »

  • Aster­oid with short­est year spot­ted
    Astronomers have spot­ted an unusu­al aster­oid with the short­est “year” known for any aster­oid. The rocky body, dubbed 2019 LF6, is about a kilo­me­tre in size and cir­cles the Sun rough­ly every 151 days. In its orbit, the aster­oid swings out beyond Venus and, at times, comes clos­er in than… Read more »
