The existence of dark matter in the universe is one of the major puzzles of current astrophysics, cosmology and particles research. While there is clear evidence for the existence of dark matter from astronomical observations, it is still unclear what the physical nature of dark matter is.
Space itself is inconceivably large, an absolutely crazy, weird place. There are a lot of strange things out there. We highlight the top ten strangest things found in space.
2015 was the year we saw Pluto and found water on Mars. In 2016, we’re going to learn just how the planets were made. Today looking ahead at what to expect in space this year. There’s a lot going on!
Theres no denying that Space is incredible. It’s a massive and mysterious thing that the world is still trying to understand! With so many people wondering about the final frontier, there are gonna be a few myths that popup. I’m here to debunk some of space myths and give you some far out info in the process! Let’s do this.
Soaring to the depths of our universe, gallant spacecraft roam the cosmos, snapping images of celestial wonders. Some spacecraft have instruments capable of capturing radio emissions. When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear. We’ve put together a compilation of elusive “sounds” of howling planets and whistling helium that is sure to make your skin crawl.
The universe loves to confuse us. And sometimes, the discoveries that benefit science the most are those that leave us severely confused and scrambling for crazy explanations.
Space probes are made to conduct science experiments. They do not have people on them. Space probes have helped scientists get information about our solar system. Most probes are not designed to return to Earth. Some have landed on other planets! Others have flown past the planets and taken pictures of them for scientists to see. There are even some space probes that go into orbit around other planets and study them for a long time. So, here are 25 interesting facts about space probes.
We all had to memorize that cute mnemonic solar system device in grade school that taught us the order of the planets. Some of us even had Milky Way placemats. But for most of us, the outer space education ended there.
We often wish that we could go back in time and rectify our mistakes or go to the future and see what it turns out to be like. One thought is that time travel is certainly not possible, because if it would have been, then we would already have been visited by time travelers! However, let us not jump to conclusions and explore the question of whether time travel is possible, by going deeper into the subject.
