Asteroids in the Solar System Have One Origin

Asteroids in the Solar System Have One Origin

  Scientists believe they have confirmed how the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter was formed Although many astronomers are studying the deep Cosmos, there are still many things that humanity does not know about the Solar System. For example, what is the origin of the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Scientists at the University of Florida believe they have found the answer to this question, the online Engadget reported. According to them, 85% of all asteroids in the inner main belt originate from the remains of 5 or 6 small, disintegrated Planets. They are Flora, Vesta, Nysa, Polana and...
Telescope at the South Pole Will Study the Early Universe

Telescope at the South Pole Will Study the Early Universe

The renewed telescope at the South Pole can now be used to study the early Universe. The device now has a new camera that will analyze cosmic radiation and microwaves with great precision, reported the online edition Engadget. The telescope has 16 000 detectors, which is 10 times more than the previous similar experiment. This will allow to detect the smallest changes in temperature when the detector is illuminated by  light. Herby, the device will be able to detect even the weakest residues of ancient microwaves that scientists believe abound in the Universe. Their detection, however, was very difficult with...

New Hypothesis for The Moon Formation Theory

New Hypothesis for The Moon Formation Theory

For decades, scientists have been debating how would it be if a piece of Earth broke down and shaped our Moon about 4.5 billion years ago. Now, new chemical evidence directs science to the theory that events were actually much more turbulent than we had imagined. Scientists describe the impact that  “freed” the Moon using the metaphor “hammer struck a melon.” Science has established the theory that the Moon was once part of the Earth before it was cut off and sent into orbit, but the exact circumstances in which it happened were still unclear. So far, the popular theory...
There is Water on the Moon

There is Water on the Moon

Scientists have confirmed the presence of ice on the Moon, Agency France-Press reported. For years, researchers have reported such a possibility, but so far there was no clear evidence. “For the first time, scientists have clear evidence of the presence of frozen water on the surface,” said Shuai Li of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetology in Hawaii. The ice, which is mostly in craters of the moon’s poles, was spotted by the Indian probe  Chandrayaan – 1, launched in 2008. NASA scientists have analyzed the chemical charts that “surely prove that there is frozen water on the surface of the moon,” he...
See The Small Magellanic Cloud Like Never Before

See The Small Magellanic Cloud Like Never Before

The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) is one of the closest dwarf galaxies circling the Milky Way. The SMC and his great sister, Large Magellanic Cloud, have fascinated mankind since the dawn of time. Now we can see them like never before. SMC is distorted by the gravitational attraction of other galaxies in the system. This makes it quite active, with many new stars. And because is only 200,000 light-years away, the SMC is a brilliant candidate for exploring stellar evolution. The problem so far has been interstellar dust, preventing us from getting a full picture. Fortunately, astronomers can now rely...
There Was a Giant Galaxy Near to the Milky Way Eaten by Andromeda

There Was a Giant Galaxy Near to the Milky Way Eaten by Andromeda

Scientists have long been aware of the fact that galaxies are growing in volume when they swallow up other, smaller galaxies. This process is part of the cosmic evolution. Evidence of this is the cosmic auras (halo) in which the stars of the cannibalized galaxies can be spotted, Science Alert writes. All this applies in full force for Andromeda (also known as M31) – our closest neighbor. The galaxy has a huge and virtually invisible halo of stars that is bigger than itself. For a long time, scientists thought it had come from a number of small mergers. However, thanks...
Astronomers Discovered 12 New Moons Around Jupiter

Astronomers Discovered 12 New Moons Around Jupiter

A dozen new Moons are found around Jupiter, and now the total number of moons known to be 79, most of any other Planet in our Solar System, astronomers said. One of the new moons was described as a “oddball” by researcher Scott Shepherd at the Carnegie Science Institute, due to its small size of almost one kilometer. It also “has orbit like no other known moon of Jupiter and is its smallest known moon,” he added. The strange moon takes about a year and a half to travel around Jupiter and its orbit is tilted that intersects with many...
