Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) created history with successfully launch of 104 satellite from seven countries.
Using the time-tested and popular Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).
The bar was previously set by Russia in 2014 when it launched 37 satellites in a single mission.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman Kiran Kumar announced "All 104 satellites successfully placed in orbit.My heart congratulations to the entire ISRO team for the wonderful job they Read more [...]
Twenty years after scientists confirmed the first planets beyond our solar system,there are some exoplanets found in our universe but some of these are weird planet.
1. Planet KOI-314c
This planet is the lightest planet to have both its mass and physical size measured.It's weight is same as the Earth,it is 60 percent larger in diameter.This planet a very thick gaseous atmosphere.It orbits a dim red dwarf about 200 light years from Earth and this is called weird planet.
2. OGLE-2005-BLG-390L Read more [...]
The formation of our universe with a start of a Big Bang as an unimaginably hot,dense point.
When our universe was just of a second or so cold - that is,a hundred of a billionth of a trillion of a second in age - it experienced an incredible burst of expansion known as inflation,in which space itself expanded than the speed of light.
During this period,the universe is doubled in size at least 90 times,going from subatomic-sized to golf-ball-sized almost instantaneously.
According to NASA,after Read more [...]
During November's full "supermoon," the moon came closer to Earth than it has been since 1948. The moon was at it's biggest and brightest on Monday morning (Nov. 14).
It has been almost 70 years since a rare supermoon lit up the dark night skies as it will on Monday and people flocked to vantage points to catch a glimpse of the phenomenon, that created some stunning images.
The moon was at its biggest and brightest - because it was 30,000km closer to earth than normal - providing some incredible Read more [...]
James Webb Space Telescope gets called the replacement of the Hubble space telescope,but scientist suggest that the this is a successor of the Hubble Space Telescope.
Webb is a scientific successor to Hubble,its goal is to were motivate by results from Hubble.
The other reason is the Webb is not the replacement of the Hubble is that its capabilities are not identical.
Webb will primarily look at the universe in the infrared,while Hubble studies it primarily at optical and ultraviolet wavelengths.
Webb Read more [...]
Dark energy has a great effect in our universe,it effects in the universe expansion.
It is roughly 68% of the universe is the dark energy and on the other hand dark matter makes up about 27%.
All normal matter adds up to less than 5% of the universe. Dark energy is the property of space.
Einstein is the first scientist who realize that empty space is not nothing.Space has important properties,many of which are beginning of the understood.
Scientist had suggested that the Read more [...]
We all know about dark matter,we study about this in our school days.Dark matter is an unidentified type of matter.
It comprising approximately 27% of the mass and energy in the observable universe that is not accounted by the dark energy,neutrinos and ordinary matter.
Dark matter is does not emit with electromagnetic radiation such as light.
It is invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
Dark matter has not been observed its existence and properties are inferred Read more [...]
Interesting facts about space:
The gloves included in the space suit have silicon rubber fingertips which allow the astronaut some sense of touch.
The Darke Equation was proposed by astronomer Frank Drake to work out how many civilizations there could be in our galaxy.
The Milky Way galaxy we live in is one of the billion of galaxy in space.
The sun travel around the galaxy once every 200 million years--a journey of 100,000 light years.
There may be a huge black hole in the center Read more [...]
The European Space Agency's Schiaparelli spacecraft prepare to land on mars on Oct.19.
There are two connected spacecraft in the ExoMars,the Trace Gas Orbiter and its Schiaparelli lander towards mars.
The two spacecraft are expected to separate on Sunday Oct 16,and if all goes according to plan,the Schiaparelli lander will land on mars three days later.
While the Schiaparelli lander is on the martian surface.
On the other hand the Trace Gas Orbiter will orbit the Red Planet and Read more [...]
