Asteroids are Harder to Destroy than Previous Estimates

Asteroids are Harder to Destroy than Previous Estimates

Researchers used a new computer modeling technique to simulate asteroids that helped them improve their understanding of rock fracture.   According to a new study at the John Hopkins University, incoming asteroids are much stronger than scientists previously thought. This study will help scientists to come up with improved asteroid mining methods as they will…

Giant Streaks Discovered in the Clouds Covering Venus

Giant Streaks Discovered in the Clouds Covering Venus

Japanese scientists found massive streaks in the atmosphere of Venus by making use of Akatsuki and AFES-Venus. The second planet from the Sun and Earth’s ‘sister’ planet, Venus has been displaying rather odd behavior. Its surface is obscured by a thick layer of gases. While probes have been sent to the planet many-a-times, there’s so…

Life is quite possible on Water Worlds

Life is quite possible on Water Worlds

The conditions for life surviving on planets, entirely covered in water, are more fluid than previously thought, opening up the possibility that water worlds could be habitable. Scientists thought that planets covered in a deep ocean would not support life assuming the absence of cycling of the minerals and gases keeping Earth’s climate stable. A…

How can you make a Star Cluster?

How can you make a Star Cluster?

All the Star Clusters were created the same way with gravity, turbulence, and intense radiation pressure being the basic contributors. Star Clusters is a name given to the groups of stars. These clusters are spread widely in our universe and astronomers have found them in two different types. First one of them is Globular Clusters…
