For the first time, astronomers have detected a neutron-star collision.
Gravitational waves heard by two detectors pinpointed the source to a galaxy 130 million light-years away.
The collision produced a radioactive “kilonova” that forged hundreds of Earths’ worth of platinum, gold, silver, and other atoms.
The discovery solves a longstanding mystery about the origins of heavy elements. Continue reading Astronomers just proved the incredible origin of nearly all gold, platinum, and silver in the universe
Star Trek was visionary in the technology it predicted. The show foresaw cell phones, tablets, universal translators, and more. But we’re still waiting for some of the other technologies to materialize. Fortunately, researchers are working to bring you all the replicators, phasers, and warp drives your heart desires. Here’s how soon you can expect to get your hands on these treknologies. Continue reading STATUS REPORT: 7 ‘STAR TREK’ TECHNOLOGIES UNDER DEVELOPMENT
Deep inside a mountain near Sweetwater in East Tennessee is a remarkable body of water known as The Lost Sea. Listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as America’s largest underground lake, the Lost Sea is part of an extensive and historic cave system called Craighead Caverns. Continue reading The largest underground lake in the US is under Tennessee, discovered by a 13 yr old boy
The core of the Milky Way has got a little bit more interesting. Not only is there a supermassive black hole millions of times the mass of the Sun, but astronomers have now discovered an enormous group of stars shaped like an X.
Melissa Ness from the Max Planck Institute and Dustin Lang from the University of Toronto have collaborated on a study on the mysterious structure, spotted by Ness in a tweet shared by Lang. Continue reading X-Shaped Structure Of Stars Spotted At the Center Of The Milky Way
Who do you think that invented the modern-day concept of the Spaceship?
Until recently it was believed that the scientific concept of a vehicle capable of flying outside Earth’s atmosphere propelled by ‘rockets’ was conceived by Russian scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and his American colleague Robert Goddard in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. These two gentlemen were inspired by science fiction stories and the epic book “From the Earth to the Moon” written by Jules Verne. But is that the actual truth?
Well some of you would say that spaceflight as we know it was mentioned in India thousands of years ago… Continue reading The secret story of the man who invented a Spaceship in 1861
People spend hours lying in yards on summer nights and traveling to far-flung nations around the world to bear witness to something that has a way of grounding everyone who sees it.
And it’s something in which we all find comfort as life winds down every night. How many sunsets have you watched in your lifetime? How many have you snapped and shared on social media? How many are tied to fond memories? Continue reading Thanks To One Artist, We Can Now Watch The Sunset From Every Other Planet
These beings do not resemble little green men or anything of that kind. This is a totally alien living space organism and this image is according to the science team, proof that alien or extraterrestrial life exists in space, outside the atmosphere of our planet Earth!
The study was conducted by scientists at the University of Buckingham Center for Astrobiology (BCAB) under the supervision of Professor Milton Wainwright.
The scientists said the image provides new evidence in support of the panspermia theory which says that life on Earth originated in space. The scientists also said the discovery supports the theory that living particles continue to rain down on Earth from space.
The researchers isolated the organism from minute pieces of debris collected from the stratospheric boundaries of space using powerful magnets. The debris was collected as part of a project carried out in Derbyshire which involved sending balloons to altitudes close to 30 kilometers in the stratosphere, near the boundaries of outer space.

The Chinese government has finished building the world’s largest radio telescope — a $180 million monster that will be used in the search for extraterrestrial life.
The last of the 4,450 panels that make up the telescope’s reflector, which is some 30 football fields in size, was hoisted into position Sunday morning, according to a press release from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, or FAST, is located in the country’s southwestern province of Guizhou. Its completion comes just months after authorities announced plans to relocate 9,110 people from their homes to make way for the giant.
“As the world’s largest single aperture telescope located at an extremely radio-quiet site, its scientific impact on astronomy will be extraordinary, and it will certainlyrevolutionize other areas of the natural sciences,” Nan Rendong, the project’s chief scientist, told China’s state-owned Xinhua News Agency.
