Today’s Travelers in the Night will bring you stories about Saturns and asteroid survey as a planetary defense system.
For decades, scientists have been trying to work out just how the Earth got all its water, and the prevailing theory was that comets and asteroids brought it, and we have evidence for that mechanic; however, a new hypothesis has provided evidence that the water was already here, locked away in hydrous minerals in a very iron-poor core.
Today Travelers in the night discussed about monitoring temperature at a different location in the observatory can help telescope detect asteroid that threats to Earth.
Today @cosmicsavannah discuss about ATLAS and its discovery of near-Earth object (NEO) with Dr. Nicolas Erasmus from SAAO.
Imagine a spacecraft traveling at a speed that would take it from New York to Tokyo in less than a minute, a mere 4 million miles from the surface of our Sun. This is what Parker Solar Probe doing. More at #365DaysoFastro
Today ESVN discuss about mass extinction, volcanoes, star formation, galaxy dissolution, and space mission synchronized observing. Also a closer look at dark energy and dark matter and giant galaxies in the early universe.
A huge Earth approaching asteroid is discovered right before the 2018 monsoon rains settled into the American Southwest and as Earth and Mars moved closer together, a dust storm engulfed most of the red planet making it impossible to see its surface features.
Asteroid hunters have discovered a strange asteroid pair. How they came to be together and what humans would do if such a large double trouble object is heading for us? Also about life form outside Earth in Milky Way.
