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...

NASA is on Rush to Land on the Moon and Stay There

NASA is speeding up its plans to return to the Moon, and this time, the US space agency says it will stay there. Jim Bridstein, a NASA administrator, told reporters on last week, that the agency plans to speed up plans backed by President Donald Trump to return to the moon using private companies. “It is important to get back to the Moon as quickly as possible,” said Bridestin, adding that he hoped astronauts would be sent to Earth’s natural satellite by 2028. “This time, when we go to the moon, we will actually stay, we will not leave any...
The Collision that Formed the Moon has Helped to formation of Life on Earth

The Collision that Formed the Moon has Helped to formation of Life on Earth

The process responsible for the formation of the Earth does not imply the existence of key ingredients for life. New research, however, shows how our planet probably has acquired them. Scientists are saying a Mars-sized planet has hit the Earth about 4.4 billion years ago. On the one hand, it served as a “donor” to the important ingredients for life, as its core was rich in sulfur. On the other – it has led to the formation of the Moon, our natural companion. Experiments prove that much of the nitrogen and carbon of the Earth is the result of this...

A Meteorite Hit the Moon During Monday’s Total Lunar Eclipse

A meteorite hit the moon during Monday’s total lunar eclipse The impact happened at 4:41:38 am GMT exactly, or 11:41:38 pm ET 21 January, 2019 The confirmation of the impact came this morning from the Moon Impacts Detection and Analysis System (MIDAS), a project developed by the University of Huelva and the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalucia. MIDAS uses three observatories to capture transient events happening on the surface of the Moon. Monitoring these impacts is very important. By learning about what is hitting the lunar surface we can better understand the space environment around the Earth-Moon system. Plus it...
It Turns Out That Our Moon Once Had an Atmosphere

It Turns Out That Our Moon Once Had an Atmosphere

A new study showed that the Moon had an atmosphere 3 to 4 billion years ago. It was formed when volcanic eruptions have shaken our companion and trowed out gases over its surface, as their speed was too high to be scattered in space. Now days, our Moon has no atmosphere because the magnetic field and the mass are not strong enough to hold it. Unlike the Earth, that keeps its atmosphere, any Moon’s atmosphere would be quickly taken away by the Solar Winds. But some time ago the situation was not like today, even if it was for astronomical...
Japan Plans to Send Their Own Astronaut to the Moon by 2030

Japan Plans to Send Their Own Astronaut to the Moon by 2030

The Japanese space agency JAXA has officially confirmed that it intends to send its own astronaut to the Moon. This is the first such mission in the history of the Land of the Rising Sun, which must become a reality by 2030. The government must give its approval to the implementation of JAXA’s innovative program, but this is a matter of formality. I remind you that Japan have their own module and astronauts aboard on the International Space Station (ISS). Sending a person to the moon will definitely be the most ambitious task of JAXA so far and will overshadow...
