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…

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…

European Space Agency is Ready to Launch a Mission to Mercury

A collaboration between ESA and JAXA might reveal some amazing facts about Mercury. Mercury is the innermost planet of our solar system and has an orbital period of just 87.97 days around the Sun. Quite understandingly, the smallest planet has also the smallest orbital period among all its companions. Similarly, the axis of Mercury exhibits…

Multimessenger Astronomy is the reason behind the Discovery of a Cosmic-Ray Source

Multimessenger Astronomy is the reason behind the Discovery of a Cosmic-Ray Source

Neutrinos helped the scientists to figure out a source of the cosmic rays. Cosmic rays have been entering the atmosphere of our planet ever since. The source of these rays have always been a mystery for astronomers as they couldn’t figure out a scientific explanation for their opinions. Having said that, the announcement of an…

What is Earth’s Magnetic Field and how is it Manifesting?

What is Earth’s Magnetic Field and how is it Manifesting?

Earth’s Magnetic Field ensures smooth movement of Earth and protects us from foreign threats like cosmic rays and solar wind. The magnetic field of Earth, also known as Surface Magnetic Field, is defined as a magnetic dipole having one pole near the geographic North Pole while the other one resides near the geographic South Pole.…

Researchers Found That The Moon Had A Magnetic Field

Researchers Found That The Moon Had A Magnetic Field

A piece of a selenar rock brought from the moon in 1971 proves that it had a magnetic field one billion years ago. The discovery shows that Earth’s natural satellite had a core which melted nearly 1-2.5 billion years ago, followed by the solidification process. Researchers from MIT, Rutgers University and Berkeley, California, analyzed a…
