Impressionnante moisson de découvertes d’exoplanètes par le satellite Kepler

Le satellite Kepler, « fer de lance » dans la quête de mondes lointains, a débusqué pas moins de 1 235 planètes potentielles dont 5 seraient de type terrestre et situées dans des zones habitables ! Cette moisson est extra-ordinaire et n’a pas finie d’étonner la communauté scientifique. Le satellite Kepler, qui tente de détecter des planètes lorsqu’elles transitent/passent devant leur étoile, a vraisemblablement identifié 170 systèmes extrasolaires différents et 1 235 exoplanètes.

Il reste encore aux chercheurs à confirmer un grand nombre d’entre elles en les observant au minimum trois fois. Google Sky. Largest star ever discovered, compared to our Sun.

L' pop e de la conqu te spatiale : pass , pr sent et avenir.

Depuis les années 1900, beaucoup de scientifiques se sont intéressés à ce que réservait le plus grand domaine jamais exploré par l'Homme, l'espace.

L' pop e de la conqu te spatiale : pass , pr sent et avenir

Dès lors, le monde entre dans une phase de développement fulgurante et inégalée dans l'histoire : en moins d'un demi-siècle, l'Homme parvient à envoyer le premier objet dans l'espace, et, dix ans plus tard, le premier homme. L'entrée du monde dans l'âge spatial s'est cependant faite dans un cadre historique particulier, qui a marqué les mémoires de plusieurs générations.

Voyons tout d'abord comment le monde est-il entré dans l'ère spatiale, et dans quel contexte historique les progrès de la science s'inscrivent-ils. 1. L’ère des théories et de la fiction.

NASA selects Canadian firms to build Mars-based online game

Two Canadian technology companies are developing a Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game about space colonization for a project commissioned by National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA). Astronaut: Moon, Mars and Beyond, is the title of the NASA-commissioned MMO set in the year 2035, when mankind has begun settling space. The game is expected to come out in playable beta-mode by December 2012.

MMO video games are played on the Internet with players using personal computers, tablet devices, or game consoles such as the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Wii. MMOs are capable of supporting hundreds or thousands of players simultaneously. The team beat out 20 other competitors in the contest sponsored by NASA’s Learning Technologies division.

iPad Survives Fall From Edge of Space in Jaw-Dropping Video

ET. A new video has captured an Apple iPad's mindboggling fall to Earth from a balloon in the stratosphere in what may be the ultimate tablet survivor tale. The high-definition video shows the iPad falling from a height of 100,000 feet (30,480 meters), with the blackness of space and the bright curve of Earth providing a stunning backdrop. The device free-falls all the way back to Earth to make a crash landing on a rocky Nevada hillside. The video was recorded by the Rhode Island-based company G-Form, which designs protective electronics cases and athletic pads. "We are usually known for making the most protective gear on the planet," said Thom Cafaro, G-Form's vice president of innovations, in a Jan. 6 statement. G-Form officials used a weather balloon to carry the iPad up into the Earth's stratosphere, where the balloon burst and allowed its payload to begin the long fall back to the ground.
