NASA's Mars 2020 rover completes first driving test

The rover's ground team is optimistic that the rover will perform well on Mars if it was able to steer and drive itself on our planet, which has much stronger gravity than the red planet. Mars 2020 will manage nearly this with each drive. "Mars 2020 has earned its driver's license", Rich Rieber, lead mobility systems engineer, said in a statement . [Full Article...]

Earth’s magnetic north pole is moving at unprecedented speeds

The north magnetic pole has been moving slowly across the Canadian Arctic towards Russian Federation since 1831. Although scientists can't fully explain the core fluctuations that are driving North pole's restlessness, they can always map Earth's magnetic field and calculate its rate of change over time, which helps us estimate how it may be distributed in the future.

NASA spots new magnetic explosion on the sun

NASA spots new magnetic explosion on the sun NASA astronomers have now observed a new type of solar magnetic explosion known as Forced Magnetic Reconnection . But before it could make it, the prominence ran into a snarl of magnetic field lines, sparking a magnetic explosion. The magnetic field of the Sun affects the corona- the layer of plasma around a star. For this observation, the Solar Dynamics Observatory was able to zero in on plasma... [Full Article...]

Boeing Starliner Launch From Cape Canaveral Friday

Boeing Starliner Launch From Cape Canaveral Friday It's a shot at a bit of redemption. Boeing's CST-100 Starliner's four launch abort engines and several orbital maneuvering and attitude control thrusters ignite during the company's Pad Abort Test on November 4, 2019. However, Starliner is one of two commercial spaceships that NASA is paying to develop.Back in March, SpaceX - a major rival of Boeing and ULA - successfully launched and landed i...

Scientists narrow age estimate for fossils of human ancestor

Scientists narrow age estimate for fossils of human ancestor A global group of researchers led by the College of Iowa have been learning an space across the village of Ngangdong on the island. These fossils seem to be different from older Homo erectus fossils in some important ways, like much larger cranial capacity (which suggests bigger brains) and higher foreheads. [Full Article...]

NASA’s X-59 supersonic jet is cleared for final assembly

NASA’s X-59 supersonic jet is cleared for final assembly Nasa's X-59 space plane, capable of flying faster than the speed of sound without the loud boom that comes with supersonic flight, is finally nearing completion. "It will be flown above select USA communities to generate data from sensors and people on the ground in order to gauge public perception". "Three major work areas are actively set up for building the airplane's main fuselage, wing and... [Full Article...]
