Astrophotographer made an Impossible View of the Moon

  The Moon has always fascinated the man. This mysterious gigantic rock orbiting the Earth has had an eternal presence in all facets of human culture for thousands of years. The Moon is a perfect example of the delicate balance found everywhere in nature. One photographer has recently created the clearest picture of its craters by combining numerous shots of the lunar line where light meets dark. To reveal the surface of the moon in detail, lunar enthusiast Andrew McCarthy stacked thousands of pictures together over lunar phases. Californian-based astrophotographer took two weeks’ worth of frames of the waxing moon,...
If Jupiter Did Not Exist, We Would Be Gone (Video)

If Jupiter Did Not Exist, We Would Be Gone (Video)

Our Solar System is weird. And not only because of the existence of this blue planet full of living things, but also because of the lack of gas giants like Jupiter at close distances to the Sun. Over the last few decades, scientists have discovered and confirmed more than 1,000 exoplanets, planets, orbiting other stars. But these star systems are quite different from the solar system – their large planets orbit their stars as close as Mercury orbits the Sun. Such exoplanets, called “hot Jupiters,” are quite common in other star systems, but strangely, they have disappeared from our. But...
Animation Shows How Fast the Planets Rotate, Combining Them Into One Giant Globe

Animation Shows How Fast the Planets Rotate, Combining Them Into One Giant Globe

Each Planet from the Solar System rotates at a specific speed and this animation shows how different these rotations are. It is the work of Dr. James O’Donoghue, a planetary scientist at the Japan Space Agency who once worked for NASA. The video shows how fast each planet rotates around its axis and compares the cosmic bodies with each other. For example, Jupiter rotates 2.4 times faster than Earth. So let’s have a look!   Please follow and like us:
Here’s What the Sky Would Look Like if The Moon Were Replaced by Our Planets

Here’s What the Sky Would Look Like if The Moon Were Replaced by Our Planets

  There is no danger of waking up one morning to see Jupiter hovering over your head. However, two amazing animations show exactly what this would look like. Astronomer lover Nicholas Holmes creates videos about Space and uploads them to his amazing YouTube channel Yeti Dynamics. One of his creations, which went viral at least several times since its publication in 2013, shows how the planets in our solar system would look if they orbited the Earth from the distance of the Moon.   The second video shows slightly different scenarios. Perhaps some of you know that all planets in...
Ursids Are Coming – The Last Meteor Shower of The Year!

Ursids Are Coming – The Last Meteor Shower of The Year!

On the night of December 23rd, rain from falling stars awaits us. It is on the eve of the Christmas holidays that the Ursids – the last meteor shower of the year – reach its peak. It has a “modest” intensity – about 10 meteors per hour, so if you are superstitious, it’s time to make a wish list. Ursids are active between December 17-26. Their parent body is the comet 12P / Pons-Brooks, with a period of about 70.7 years. The name of the stream is taken from its radiant point, which is located in the constellation Ursa Minor....
The Moon Shrinks

The Moon Shrinks

The Мoon is shrinking, causing surface creases and shocks underneath it, AFP writes. Data is from the NASA spacecraft Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), which flies through an elliptical trajectory between 20 and 160 kilometers above the Moon’s surface and takes pictures and other measurements. advertisement A survey of more than 12,000 images indicates that one of the basin at the North Pole of the Moon, considered geologically dead, actually cracks and moves. Unlike the Earth, the moon has no tectonic plates and the only activity is noticeable because of the slow heat loss since it was formed 4.5 billion years...
Rivers on Mars Flowed for More Than a Billion Years

Rivers on Mars Flowed for More Than a Billion Years

The rivers on Mars were wider and deeper than those on Earth, according to a publication in the Science Advances Magazine. Up to this conclusion, scientists reached an analysis of 200 dry river beds on the surface of the neighboring planet. Wide and deep rivers have existed on Mars for a surprisingly long period. This makes their disappearance even more mysterious and inexplicable. “We could not explain why there were lakes and rivers on Mars, and the current discoveries make the question even more incomprehensible” writes Edwin Kite of the University of Chicago. ”It turns out that wide and deep...

NASA Was Asked to Return Astronauts to The Moon in The Next 5 Years

US Vice President Mike Pens challenged NASA to send people to the Moon by 2024. Jim Bridenstine, NASA administrator, accepted the challenge and announced that the deadline is sufficient. Pens wants a little more dynamics from NASA’s space projects. During a meeting at Alabama Space Center, he announced, that sending astronauts to the Moon, for up to 5 years, is in the goals of the current presidential administration. “Challenge accepted. Now let’s get to work.” Brindenstine  said on Twitter. BIG NEWS: President Trump and @VP Pence have directed @NASA to return astronauts to the Moon in the next 5 years.Challenge...
