NASA finally found evidence of the universe's earliest molecule

NASA uses its Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to detect the primordial molecule. The scientists found it in NGC 7027, a planetary nebula (a remnant of a Sun-like star) located 3,000 light-years away. The discovery proves that helium hydride can exist in space, and it confirms theories about the chemistry of the early universe and its evolution. The findings …

NASA study confirms global warming trends

Credit: CC0 Public Domain A recent study by NASA researchers has confirmed the accuracy of recent global warming numbers. The team used measurements of Earth's "skin temperature" taken with a satellite-based infrared measurement system called AIRS (Atmospheric Infra-Red Sounder) from 2003 to 2017. They compared these with station-based analyzes of surface temperature anomalies – mainly the Goddard Institute for Space …
