A NASA spacecraft captured a day in the life of Pluto and its largest moon

Two new images of Pluto and its biggest moon Charon show the two worlds through the course of a full day, which for them is about 6.4 Earth-days long. The images were released on Friday. The images of Pluto were taken from July 7 to July 13 by the New Horizons spacecraft at a range of 5 million miles to 400,000 miles, as the dwarf planet rotated in its orbit around the sun, NASA said.

Einstein's Gravity Theory Passes Toughest Test Yet - Strange Stellar Pair Helps Study The Nature Of Gravity. - A strange stellar pair nearly 7,000 light-years from Earth has provided physicists with a unique cosmic laboratory for studying the nature of gravity.

Einstein's Gravity Theory Passes Toughest Test Yet - Strange Stellar Pair Helps Study The Nature Of Gravity

The extremely strong gravity of a massive neutron star in orbit with a companion white dwarf star puts competing theories of gravity to a test more stringent than any available before. Once again, Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, published in 1915, comes out on top. New Pluto Moons Are Named Kerberos And Styx. - The International Astronomical Union (IA announced that the names Kerberos and Styx have officially been recognized for the fourth and fifth moons of Pluto - formerly known as P4 and P5.

New Pluto Moons Are Named Kerberos And Styx

The new moons were discovered in 2011 and 2012, during observations of the Pluto system made with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Camera 3. Kerberos lies between the orbits of Nix and Hydra, two bigger moons discovered by Hubble in 2005, and Styx lies between Charon, the innermost and biggest moon, and Nix.

The darker stripe in the centre of the image is because the picture is constructed from a long exposure designed to capture the comparatively faint satellites of Nix, Hydra, Kerberos and Styx, and a shorter exposure to capture Pluto and Charon, which are much brighter.

Yet the hydrocarbon methane (CH4), which is one of the most abundant molecules in the universe, has puzzled scientists for years. Now, scientists have learned a little bit more about this hydrocarbon, helping them understand the processes and conditions found in planetary interiors. (Photo : NASA, ESA, and M. Showalter (SETI Institute)) About 2.8 billion miles from the sun is Neptune, the dark, cold planet whipped by supersonic winds. Vast Liquid Ocean Beneath Europa Is Connected With The Moon's Frozen Surface. - The scientists analyzed the data from W.

Vast Liquid Ocean Beneath Europa Is Connected With The Moon's Frozen Surface

M. Keck Observatory, the world's two largest optical/infrared telescopes located on the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii and found the strongest evidence yet that salty water from the vast liquid ocean beneath Europa’s frozen exterior actually makes its way to the surface. There is a chemical exchange between the ocean and surface, making the ocean a richer chemical environment, and implies that learning more about the ocean could be as simple as analyzing the moon’s surface, say Mike Brown, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) astronomer and Kevin Hand, an astrobiologist and planetary scientist from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

Mysterious Signal Originating From Jupiter Discovered - Changes In Its Intensity Observed. - Astronomers have detected an unknown puzzling radio emission from Jupiter.

Mysterious Signal Originating From Jupiter Discovered - Changes In Its Intensity Observed

The striking changes in the signal's intensity are surprising and unexpected. The radio emission will now be further examined by scientists. The Earth is loud-radio-loud. That is how objects causing measurable radio emissions are described in astronomy. The Earth itself is one as well, whose magnet field influences charged particles (electrons, protons, and ions) in a way that causes radio emissions.

NASA Rover Finds Conditions Once Suited For Ancient Life On Mars. - An analysis of a rock sample collected by NASA's Curiosity rover shows ancient Mars could have supported living microbes.

Scientists identified sulfur, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and carbon -- some of the key chemical ingredients for life -- in the powder Curiosity drilled out of a sedimentary rock near an ancient stream bed in Gale Crater on the Red Planet last month. "A fundamental question for this mission is whether Mars could have supported a habitable environment," said Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA's Mars Exploration Program at the agency's headquarters in Washington. "From what we know now, the answer is yes. " NASA Curiosity's Report - There Is Water In Martian Soil. - According to measurements made by Nasa's Curiosity rover, fine materials on the surface of the planet contain water.

"Could Mars have once harbored life? " To answer this question, Curiosity landed in Gale Crater on the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012. Redux: NASA Whistleblower: Alien Moon Cities Exist.

Establishing and determining a factual Geophysical model of planet Earth’s interior has been a considerable challenge for the intellectual community. Given our rapid technological advancement, one would think that determining the makeup of Earth’s core would be simple, but it’s not.

Earth’s core is the most inaccessible part of our planet. Several prominent individuals have supported the hollow Earth theory, and it is no joke of a list. A number of physicists, astronomers, mathematicians and high ranking military personnel share the same belief. They share their stories through experience, research and more. Our current understanding about the makeup of Earth’s core is a theory, based on assumption that is taught as fact. Prediccs - Space Radiation Environment for Earth.

Unknown Third Radiation Belt Around Earth Reveals Existence Of Unexpected Structures. - A previously unknown third radiation belt around Earth, revealing the existence of unexpected structures and processes within these hazardous regions of space has been discovered by NASA's Van Allen Probes mission. Based on observations of Earth's Van Allen belts, scientists have long known and documented two distinct regions of trapped radiation surrounding our planet. Particle detection instruments aboard the twin Van Allen Probes, launched Aug. 30, quickly revealed to scientists the existence of this new, transient, third radiation belt.

Espace : découverte de la troisième ceinture de radiations. La Terre en Expansion. Unusual Ring Of Radiation Explained. - In February of this year, a team of scientists reported the surprising discovery of a previously unknown third radiation ring - a narrow one that briefly appeared between the inner and outer rings in September 2012 and persisted for a month. In new research, UCLA space scientists have successfully modeled and explained the unique behavior of this third ring, showing that the extremely energetic particles that made up this ring, known as ultra-relativistic electrons, are driven by very different physics than typically observed Van Allen radiation belt particles. The region the belts occupy - ranging from about 1,000 to 50,000 kilometers above the Earth's surface - is filled with electrons so energetic they move close to the speed of light. Ring-formation between belts "Their velocity is very close to the speed of light, and the energy of their motion is several times larger than the energy contained in their mass when they are at rest," Kellerman said.

Selon une nouvelle étude russe, la météorite tombée en février dernier à Tcheliabinsk aurait heurté un autre corps ou frôlé le Soleil avant de s'écraser sur Terre. Des fragments indiquent en effet que l'objet a connu un processus de fusion intense avant son entrée dans l'atmosphère.
