Raging wildfires continue in California – including the Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles and the Camp Fire in Northern California, which has now become one of the deadliest in the state’s history. NASA satellites are watching these fires – and the damage they’re causing – from space. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California is

ISRO is already working towards making their ambitious Gaganyaan mission come to fruition in which Indian astronauts will be sent to space, but now the space agency has also drawn up a list of experiments to be performed prior to that main mission. ISRO is looking at a group of 10 experiments to be performed
The world is caught in a vicious circle. As it grows hotter, people turn up their air conditioning but as they turn up the air con, the world grows hotter. And so it repeats and repeats. But now there might be hope: a new technology produced by scientists from the US and China could literally
NASA’s Parker Solar Probe came within 15 million miles (24 million kilometres) of the sun on Monday (Nov. 5), which is much closer than any mission had ever gotten before. What’s more, on Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 7), the probe made contact with Earth, letting the controllers know that it’s in good health and continuing to
‘Oumuamua, Hawaiin for “scout,” is an interstellar object that is once again garnering attention, this time for a new theory about its origins. Scientists from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics recently published a new study which looks at the origins of this object, such as the chances that it might be a light sail
Future technologies, such as quantum computers and quantum encryption, will require the experimental mastery of complex quantum systems. Thus, scientists from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences have begun to use more complex quantum systems than two-dimensionally entangled qubits. In doing so, they can now increase the information capacity using the
For some time now experts believe there is a supermassive black hole situated at the center of our galaxy, called Sagittarius A*. Currently, scientists have found more evidence about the black hole which they released in an announcement on October 31. Experts have used the Very Large Telescope (VLT) to watch for flares of infrared
According to a new United Nations report, Earth’s ozone layer is finally repairing itself from damage that was a result of aerosol sprays and coolants. Since the late 1970s, the ozone layer had been thinning. Fortunately, scientists sounded the alarm, and ozone-depleting chemicals were phased out globally. Thus, the upper ozone layer above the Northern
For the first time, Australian scientists have demonstrated the protection of correlated states between paired photons—packets of light energy—using the interesting physical concept of topology. This innovative breakthrough opens a new way to build a new type of quantum bit, which are the building blocks for quantum computers. The research, developed in conjunction with Israeli

A new study suggests that being in space for long periods of time not only causes muscle atrophy and reductions in bone density, but it could have lasting effects on the brain. A team of neuroscientists from the University of Antwerp in Belgium and Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) of Munich led the study and showed that differential
