The final launch of a Delta II rocket was victorious this past weekend, which sent an Earth-tracking satellite built in Arizona into space to assist with measuring the impact of global warming. This is an important development for Asgardia who aims to protect Earth from space threats. As per Northrop Grumman Corp, a 2,919-pound satellite

Community-based monitoring is now being coupled with the security of blockchain technology in Atlantic Canada as a way to safeguard the health of freshwater. In 2017, World Wildlife Fund Canada conducted a Watershed Report that found there were widespread data deficiencies, with two-thirds of Canada’s sub-watersheds data deficient for health indicators. This presents an obstacle
The Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway is a space station that will be orbiting around the Moon, and NASA is currently in the process of building it. In the next five years, the space agency plans to launch the lunar outpost and extend the presence of humanity into deep space. The project is designed to allow
When the Senate subcommittee asked for reasons why they should send crewed missions to Mars. Ellen Stofan, NASA’s former chief scientist who now leads the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, stated that if we genuinely want to discover and understand any possible traces of ancient life on the Red Planet, robots can’t do it
When it comes to robot research, the animal kingdom often serves as inspiration. Now, a new bio-mimicking robot addresses one of nature’s most annoying pests to prevent the real-life equivalent from destroying plants. In recent research published in Science, a new fruit fly-inspired bot, dubbed the DelFly Nimble, tested the abilities of robots flying without
According to futurist Ray Kurzweil, we should have armies of microscopic robots flowing through our bodies by the year 2030. These tiny bots will be used to diagnose diseases and deliver drug treatments directly to where we need them. A technology which could prove useful to treat Asgardians living on habitable platforms in low-Earth orbit.
As the name suggests artificial photosynthesis is the effort to recreate what plants do. That is for humans to split water molecules into energy-bestowing hydrogen and breathable oxygen using natural sunlight in a way that’s more energy efficient. If this can be accomplished it could not only become a more renewable form of energy, but

As the launch of small satellites and CubeSats begins to grow, so too will the number of space junk, which is already exorbitant. Thus, David Palmer, an astrophysicist at Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico, and his team are working on a way to keep track of the rising space traffic. A development that
With many around the world feeling the effects of the heatwaves this summer, eyes are turned towards government initiatives that aim to understand and combat climate change.
One of the most critical challenges facing our society in the 21st century is climate change. Its importance has been touted in recent reports from both the IPCC and UNFCCC and the overwhelming economic consequences were put forth in the Stern Report. However, observations made from space offer unique information which significantly helps to build
