Massive Stellar Flare on a Baby Star could Create the Building Blocks of Potentially Habitable Exoplanets

Massive Stellar Flare on a Baby Star could Create the Building Blocks of Potentially Habitable Exoplanets

Scientists recorded a big flare in a small package on an M-type star. Astronomers have witnessed a huge stellar flare on a baby star. They say that this flare is about 10,000 times bigger than the largest solar flare recorded in history. Some say that the flare is so powerful that it may create new…

Researchers have Measured all the Starlight in the Observable Universe

Researchers have Measured all the Starlight in the Observable Universe

4×1084 photons of light have been emitted by stars into space since the Big Bang. Our universe has been creating stars for billions of years. According to an estimate, there are around trillion-trillion stars in 2 trillion galaxies of our universe. Despite all the technological advancement, astrophysicists haven’t been able to trace much about star…

Models of Earth could be Improved by using Atomic Clocks

Models of Earth could be Improved by using Atomic Clocks

The latest development, at NIST, on Atomic Clocks might result in a redefinition of Second, the international unit of time. A clock device that uses an Electron Transition Frequency in the Optical, Ultraviolet, and Microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum of atoms for its timekeeping element is called an Atomic Clock. They are the most…

Venus ‘Suggests’ that Climate Change Should be Taken Seriously

Venus ‘Suggests’ that Climate Change Should be Taken Seriously

The climatic destruction of Venus offers a great example to take a lead from and we need to mold our ways immediately to preserve our planet. The recent studies at NASA suggest that about 2 billion years ago, Venus was once a habitable planet with shallow, liquid-water oceans and a habitable surface. Contrary to that,…

Scientists Reveal Updated Climate Models for the Planets around TRAPPIST-1

Scientists Reveal Updated Climate Models for the Planets around TRAPPIST-1

Researchers propose that TRAPPIST-1e resembles Earth the most and it has an Oxygen-rich atmosphere to go with it. TRAPPIST-1 is a small, cool dwarf star located 39 light years or 235 trillion miles from our Sun. It is orbited by seven terrestrial (Earth-like) planets. These planets are temperate, which means the conditions there allow water…

The Movement of Earth’s Poles Led to the Current “Ice Age”

The Movement of Earth’s Poles Led to the Current “Ice Age”

Earth shifted away from its spin axis in the last 12 million years. Geophysicists from the Rice University analyzed the evidence from the Pacific Ocean to determine that the Earth has made a slight shift relative to its spin axis within the past 12 million years. The study published in the journal ‘Geophysical Research Letters’…

The Journey of Kepler Space Telescope Comes to an End

The Journey of Kepler Space Telescope Comes to an End

The exoplanet-hunter of NASA has retired. NASA made an announcement about the retirement of the Kepler Space Telescope on 30th October. The fact that the spacecraft has run out of fuel was the reason which prompted this disappointing decision. This extraordinary mission explored deep space for about 9 years and discovered more than 2,600 exoplanets…

School Students Identified Sounds from a Solar Storm in the Earth’s Magnetic Shield

School Students Identified Sounds from a Solar Storm in the Earth’s Magnetic Shield

A researcher of the Queen Mary University of London made some dramatic increments to the speed of the playback of the ultra-low frequencies to make them audible. Earth is under continuous bombardment from charged particles, who travel all the way from the Sun to the atmosphere of our planet. Most of the light seen at…

Wolf 503b is too Close to its Star

Wolf 503b is too Close to its Star

Scientists found an exoplanet twice as big as Earth in the Virgo Constellation which orbits incredibly close to its host star. The desire to find the habitable celestial body anywhere else (other than the Earth) in the universe has urged astronomers to go beyond their limits. The emergence of advanced telescopes like the Hubble and…

Why Earth Rotates?

Why Earth Rotates?

The rotation theory of the universe suggests that if the sun shall rise tomorrow, it may just be a fraction late. Since the Earth came into being some 4.6 billion years ago, every day it spins once around its axis just like the rising and setting of the Sun. This will continue to happen till…
