Finalists in the NASA competition show their Mars habitat models

According to TechCrunch the software needs different details about the structures designed by the developers. In other words, the teams could not only come up with a concept that looks good – they had to make sure wall thicknesses, heating, pressure sealing and other elements of their habitats could withstand the rigors of Mars. The five teams share a $ …

Weathering, the carbon cycle and the global climate

By: Edgar Mana-ay There is much discussion about carbon dioxide or CO2 as a "greenhouse gas" (GHG) in the atmosphere that traps the radiant heat of the earth and causes global warming. As a component of CO2, the basic element carbon is subject to a natural process, the so-called inorganic carbon cycle, which is triggered by the weathering process. It …

Star swings around Black Hole, testing gravity

Scientists have Einstein right where they want it. Reinhard Genzel (Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Germany) and his colleagues today announced in Garching that they have discovered the shift of a star light through the sun's extreme gravity of the black hole in the center of our galaxy. This change, called gravitational redshift is one of the long sought …

Who owns the moon? A space lawyer answers the compelling issue

Under the space contract, the Moon and other celestial bodies, such as asteroids, can not become a "territory" of one sovereign state or another. M Probably this is the most famous image taken of a flag: Buzz Aldrin standing next to the first US flag that was planted on the moon. For those who knew their world history, some alarm …

X-ray technology reveals never-before-seen matter around the black hole

In an international collaboration between Japan and Sweden, scientists explained how gravity affects the shape of matter near the black hole in the binary system Cygnus X-1. Their findings, published this month in Nature Astronomy, could help scientists better understand the physics of strong gravitation and the evolution of black holes and galaxies. Near the constellation Cygnus, there is a …
