On January 1, 2019 NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft visited Ultima Thule- a contact binary object located 6.6 billion kilometers away from Earth. Few days after the flyby, the team released the first set of images. As soon as the first set of images were made available to the public, many compared the shape of Ultima […]Read More Good News for flat-earthers! NASA finds Ultima Thule is flat like a pancake
Black Holes are among the strangest things in the universe. These cosmic monsters are incredibly massive, but cover only a small region. Classical physics fails to explain what happens inside a black hole. Einstein’s theory of relativity works well inside a black hole but breaks down at its center. It is commonly believed that a […]Read More Rotating Supermassive Black Holes could act as portals to another universes
NASA launched its Opportunity rover on July 7, 2003 as a part of its Mars Exploration Rover (MER) program. The rover landed on Mars on January 25, 2004. Opportunity was designed to last on Mars for about 90 days. However, it continued functioning for more than 14 years (14 years and 294 days to be […]Read More NASA’s Opportunity rover won’t send us pictures of Mars anymore
Astronomers finally know when our Milky Way galaxy will slam into the neighboring monster galaxy Andromeda. Andromeda also known as M31 is a spiral galaxy approximately 2.5 million light years away from Earth. It is the nearest major galaxy to Milky Way and is moving towards us at an insane speed of 110 km/s. Astronomers […]Read More The date for the Andromeda-Milky Way collision has been postponed
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity forbids ordinary matter from ever reaching the speed of light, as it would require infinite energy. You might have heard of ‘warp drive’ in the science fiction series Star Trek. Warp drive is a hypothetical spacecraft propulsion system that can travel faster than light. A warp drive spaceship could travel faster than […]Read More Warp Drive engines might help us travel ‘Faster than light’ one day
Forget about the reality shows like Man vs. Wild or The Amazing Race and imagine how interesting it would be to watch a reality show where people try to find the edge of the Earth for a cash prize they’d never win! This idea initially appeared on reddit and immediately received a huge amount of […]Read More People are demanding a reality show where flat-earthers find the edge of Earth
Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system and is well known for its prominent ring system. Since it is a gas giant, it does not have a surface to land. Saturn’s structure can be divided into three parts: the gaseous atmosphere, the liquid mantle and the solid core. A person falling into […]Read More What would you see if you fell into Saturn?
