NASA’S $1 BILLION JUPITER PROBE JUST SENT BACK STUNNING NEW PHOTOS OF JUPITER

NASA’S $1 BILLION JUPITER PROBE JUST SENT BACK STUNNING NEW PHOTOS OF JUPITER

Traveling above Jupiter at more than 130,000 miles per hour, NASA’s $1 billion Juno probe took its ninth set of stunning flyby images on October 24. But the sun slipped between the giant planet and Earth for more than a week, blocking the spacecraft from beaming home its precious bounty of data.

Now that the conjunction is over, however, new raw image data from Juno’s ninth perijove — as the spacecraft’s high-speed flybys are called — has poured in.

An Apollo Astronaut’s Anger at NASA’s Lost Decades

An Apollo Astronaut’s Anger at NASA’s Lost Decades

DALLAS—Most of the Apollo astronauts, at one time or another, have voiced grievances at how slowly the American manned spaceflight program has advanced. Why wouldn’t they? Since the end of the focused, breakneck race to the moon during the 1960s and early 70s, NASA lost its ambitious mandate to send humans to explore other worlds. Each new presidential administration had a new plan that required scrapping the old one. And America still hasn’t sent astronauts back to the moon, much less set foot on Mars.

NASA to auction decades-old vintage photos for up to $9000 each

NASA to auction decades-old vintage photos for up to $9000 each

John Glenn was the first person to snap a photograph of Earth from outer space. Neil Armstrong took the first picture from the moon’s surface.

The original prints of those are among 445 rare photos taken by American astronauts that are being sold by Skinner Auctioneers and Appraisers starting this week.

The Massachusetts auction house says “The Beauty of Space” is the first-ever U.S. auction to focus solely on vintage photographs produced by NASA astronauts during the heyday of lunar exploration, from 1961 to 1972.

Great Pyramid in Egypt has huge ‘plane-sized’ void in the middle, scientists discover in shock finding

Great Pyramid in Egypt has huge ‘plane-sized’ void in the middle, scientists discover in shock finding

The Great Pyramid has a huge “plane-sized” void at its middle, according to scientists.

What lies in the middle of the structure has been debated for years, with researchers unable to actually see inside. But the new discovery just deepens that mystery: they now appear to have discovered that it contains a huge room with an unknown purpose.

The discovery is the first of its kind to be made since the 19th century and comes as part of the “ScanPyramids” project, being run by an international team of researchers.

How tall can we build and can we create a tower that goes into space?

How tall can we build and can we create a tower that goes into space?

Did you know that you can see the sun set twice during a single day in Dubai? You watch it dip below the horizon from the base of Burj Khalifa, before taking the elevator to the observation deck to see it set again.

At 828 metres tall, the Burj Khalifa is so high that in 2011 the Dubai Islamic Affairs Department passed a ruling to state that people living above the 80th floor must delay breaking their fast during Ramadan by two to three minutes to factor in the timing of the sunset.

The WW2 flying wing decades ahead of its time

The WW2 flying wing decades ahead of its time

In the last months of World War Two, Nazi Germany tested an experimental fighter more spaceship than aircraft. Only now are we realising how inspired it was. BBC Future looks at the Horten Ho 229, one of aviation’s most futuristic designs.

In December, US aircraft maker Northrop Grumman unveiled a revolutionary design for a future fighter aircraft that could, theoretically, fly over the war zones of the coming century.

Their concept looks more like a flying saucer than a fighter plane – it is what aviation experts call a ‘flying wing’, a design which ditches the traditional tail fin at the back.

The Next Giant Leap: US Will Return to the Moon, Pence Says

The Next Giant Leap: US Will Return to the Moon, Pence Says

A new direction?

Yesterday (Oct. 4) was the 60th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik 1, which kicked off the Space Age and the Cold War space race. Pence referenced that seminal event during his remarks today, while lamenting a perceived lack of direction in U.S. space policy.

“Rather than lead in space, too often, we’ve chosen to drift,” he said. “And, as we learned 60 years ago, when we drift, we fall behind.”

As evidence of this drift, Pence cited the fact that NASA astronauts haven’t gone beyond low-Earth orbit since the final Apollo moon mission, in 1972.

Former high-level U.S. intelligence and defense officials join new UFO disclosure effort, promise major revelations

Former high-level U.S. intelligence and defense officials join new UFO disclosure effort, promise major revelations

Several former high-level officials involved in some of the U.S. government’s most sensitive and covert activities in recent decades came forth Oct. 11 to discuss unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) — a term that has replaced “unidentified flying objects,” or UFOs.

They spoke at the launch of a new platform for UFO disclosure which they have joined, called To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science. The launch was broadcast live on the Academy’s website.

Scientists are hunting for black holes on the South Pole

Scientists are hunting for black holes on the South Pole

Researchers believe its difficult-to-access telescope will allow them to see into the center of the Milky Way.

Each of the telescopes that the astronomers of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) are currently working to bring into their black-hole-observing, planet-size array is a special case. Mexico’s Large Millimeter Telescope, for example, is an enormous single dish on top of an exceptionally high mountain, not to mention the biggest science project of any kind in its country.

The UAE has a plan to colonize Mars in the next 100 years, and the oil money to finance it

The UAE has a plan to colonize Mars in the next 100 years, and the oil money to finance it

When Elon Musk went before an international space conference in Mexico and announced his vision of a Mars transportation system built by his company SpaceX, attendees were enthralled by the technology—and despairing of the price tag, which at a bare minimum of $10 billion seemed out of reach for the private sector and the United States’ cash-strapped space agency.

But more than one space enthusiast eyed the elaborately decorated exhibit booth of the United Arab Emirates space agency, founded in 2014, wondering whether it—and the UAE’s $500 billion sovereign wealth fund, swollen with petrodollars—could be the financiers needed for a Mars colony.
