CubeSats with Laser will provide Steady Reference Light for Next-generation Telescopes

CubeSats with Laser will provide Steady Reference Light for Next-generation Telescopes

Laser guide stars can help segmented space telescopes to explore the distant exoplanetary systems. The idea of finding a habitat for humanity, other than the Earth, has grown rapidly in recent years. Astronomers have found thousands (about 4,000) of confirmed exoplanets in different parts of the universe. In addition to that, there is an abundance…

The Coolest Place in the Universe

The Coolest Place in the Universe

The Cold Atom Lab of NASA can reach up to -459o F. The Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) is a fundament Physics user facility that is operational on the International Space Station (ISS). This instrument is used to produce clouds of ultra-cooled atoms called Bose-Einstein Condensates (BEC). Their temperature can drop as much as only a…

NASA is Working on Ultrafast Laser Machining for Multiple Spaceflight Applications

Scientists might be able to join dissimilar materials without epoxies following the latest development at the Goddard Space Flight Center of NASA. The anagram ‘LASER’ stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The combined study of light and optics enabled man to artificially create lasers. Unlike natural light or conventional bulbs that emit multiple wavelengths of light, lasers…
