Scientist’s unravelled biggest star explosion

Scientist’s unravelled biggest star explosion ever seen Part of: GS-III- S&T - Space (PT-MAINS-PERSONALITY TEST) The supernova, releasing twice as much energy as any other stellar explosion observed to date, occurred about 4.6 billion light years from Earth in a relatively small galaxy. A light year is the distance light travels in a year, 5.9 trillion miles (9.5 trillion km) PT SHOT. Believed to be a type of supernova that until now has only been theorized. Astrophysicist sai

Musk’s SPACE X wins NASA award for planned lunar space station

Musk’s SPACE X wins NASA award for planned lunar space station SpaceX will get a portion of a $7 billion NASA contract to use its biggest rocket, Falcon Heavy, to send a new “Dragon XL” spacecraft to the Lunar Gateway, an outpost NASA plans to build that will orbit the moon sometime within the next decade. The Dragon XL spacecraft, the latest variant in Musk’s lineup of so-called Dragon cargo and astronaut capsules, will carry research supplies that will help future

China’s experimental spaceship works normally in orbit

China’s experimental spaceship works normally in orbit China's new-generation spaceship launched earlier in the week is working normally in orbit after completing a series of planned operations The experimental spaceship was launched without crew by China's new large carrier rocket Long March-5B from the Wenchang Space Launch Centre in Hainan. So far, the new spaceship has unfolded its solar panels and positioned them towards the sun, deployed its relay antenna and establishe


NISAR NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite (NISAR) is the world’s most expensive earth imaging satellite. NISAR is dual frequency RADAR, it is an L-band and S-band RADAR. It is the first such satellite using dual frequency RADAR. The S-band is being built by ISRO and L-band by NASA. It is expected that the NISAR satellite will be launched in 2021 from India using the Geo-synchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV). One of the main purposes of the mission is to observe

CHESS rocket

CHESS rocket NASA is launching a new CHESS sounding rocket which will study vast interstellar clouds to understand about the earliest stages of star formation. Deep in space between distant stars, vast clouds of neutral atoms and molecules, as well as charged plasma particles called the interstellar medium that may evolve into new stars and even planets. It will measure light filtering through the interstellar medium to study the atoms and molecules within, which provides crucial infor

NASA’s Mission to explore Ionosphere

NASA’s Mission to explore Ionosphere NASA has announced two missions to explore the little-understood area of 96 km above Earth’s surface. The two missions Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) and Ionospheric Connection Explorer(ICON) will team up to explore the ionosphere. ICON will be in low-Earth orbit, at 560 km above Earth, like a close-up camera while GOLD will be in a geostationary orbit over the Western Hemisphere, about 35,398 km above the planet&rsquo

Solar Orbiter Mission

Solar Orbiter Mission NASA has launched the Solar Orbiter to space on an Atlas 5 rocket from Florida on February 10. The mission is a cooperative mission between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) which will help researchers to know how the star's energy affects Earth and humans in space. Key Points The Solar Orbiter Mission is a cooperative mission between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). It a seven-year mission. Significance: It will observe t
