After ten years of thought, the United Kingdom is ready to construct its first spaceport, and it thinks it’s found the perfect location: Sutherland, Scotland. U.K. Business Secretary Greg Clark unveiled the decision during the Farnborough International Airshow. The nation is giving Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), the Scottish government’s development agency, £2.5 million (US$3.3 million) in

An advanced new radio telescope, named MeerKAT, has started its operations—and it has already taken a stunning image that is the clearest view of our galaxy’s center so far. In incredible detail, the picture uncovers a fiery region surrounding the supermassive black hole that sits at the heart of the Milky Way, approximately 25,000 light-years away.

Two small asteroids recently snuck safely past Earth, only to be spotted hours after they’d zoomed past our planet. Asteroids 2018 NX and 2018 NW came within a distance of 72,000 miles and 76,000 miles, respectively, about one-third of the distance from the Earth to the moon. Scientists believe the asteroids both stretched between about
Last year astronomers spotted a near-Earth asteroid orbiting the sun. Now they have realized that this asteroid has been hiding a twin. Last month, new observations from several teams revealed something new about the asteroid known as 2017 YE5. On July 12, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology released a new

In a process powered by light scientists have developed a new method that can split water in near-zero gravity to produce oxygen and hydrogen. This technique, which is outlined in a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, has the possibility to make long-distance space travel feasible in the future, offering both hydrogen fuel to
Recently SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station toward the International Space Station (ISS). Although there is no human crew aboard the rocket is carrying some very important passengers: 20 laboratory mice. The mice are part of a study by Northwestern University’s Center for Sleep and Circadian Biology (CSCB).

Approximately 800 crescent-shaped pits have been found on Mars. They are the imprints of long-gone ancient sand dunes that once rose high above the Red Planet’s surface, as reported in a study published in the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) Journal of Geophysical Research. The pits were shaped about two billion years ago. Back when Mars

Deep below the surface of Antarctica, researchers are seeking tiny particles known as “neutrinos.” These particles fill the universe, but they’re almost impossible to find. Their mysterious origins have eluded researchers for many years. However, in a new discovery that ushers in a “new era” of neutrino research, physicists have finally pinpointed a source. Scientists

Astronomers have begun to take a keen interest in a galaxy that’s 13 billion light-years away from Earth. Not only is this galaxy spinning around a hungry supermassive black hole that’s gulping down matter and shooting out plasma jets but this plasma-spewing quasar is shooting out brighter radio emissions than anything else ever seen in
