"Monster" Size Black Hole Found By Chinese Scientists Baffles Science Community

Astronomers have spotted one of these black holes in our galactic backyard, but it's a bit heftier than it ought to be. Supermassive black holes are much bigger - they can be billions of times the mass of our sun. By their calculations, however this unseen black hole companion was huge, weighing in at almost 70 solar masses! Finding a black hole significantly larger than 25 solar masses is perpl...

'Phantom' Vest-Wearing Dummies to Fly Around the Moon

'Phantom' Vest-Wearing Dummies to Fly Around the Moon Before this moon-bound mission takes off, however, a version of StemRad is already on board the International Space Station, thanks to a launch aboard a Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo spacecraft in November. This vest is presupposed to give protection to major human tissue, particularly stem cells, which will most certainly be devastated by solar radiation in deep dwelling or on Mars. [Full Article...]

177FT space rock ‘could’ hit Earth at 61,000MPH — NASA asteroid warning

177FT space rock ‘could’ hit Earth at 61,000MPH — NASA asteroid warning The asteroids are expected to scrape by the planet at separate times today (Sunday, December 1). NASA's trackers estimate the fastest of the three rocks is barreling through space at speeds of almost 22,750mph (36,611km/h). NASA also estimates the rock is flying through space at speeds of around 10.17km per second or 22,749mph (36,611km/h). The same thing happened previous year when on 21 Decemb... [Full Article...]

Spacewalking astronauts perform complex repairs on $2 billion cosmic ray detector

Spacewalking astronauts perform complex repairs on $2 billion cosmic ray detector European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano on Monday completed his third spacewalk with NASA colleague Andrew Morgan to service the AMS-102 antimatter seeker on the International Space Station, which Parmitano is now commanding. Lead engineer Zhan Zhang will operate in tandem with all the astronauts to power off the system and then on again after it's installed by Parmitano. [Full Article...]

Astronomers just spotted a black hole so huge it technically shouldn’t exist

Astronomers just spotted a black hole so huge it technically shouldn’t exist Calculations suggest that the Milky Way galaxy's stellar-mass black holes - which form after the violent deaths of giant stars - should top out at only 25 times the mass of the sun, the researchers said . But that assumption was metaphorically crushed in the gravity of a "monster" black hole that a group of Chinese-led worldwide scientists discovered inside our own galaxy. [Full Article...]
