Are you a UFO enthusiast? Then this story is worth your time.

Whenever I look at the Moon, I always wonder how it was created. Numerous theories back the idea of the moon being a part of Earth in the past.

We all heard about those theories of how the Moon was created, some mystical and some theoretical. Now scientists have more ways to prove their theories and that’s where we get our astonishing results.

Inside our Earth’s crust, there are two giant blobs of rock. They were considered mysterious until now…

This year marks the 142nd birthday of Prof. Albert Einstein, the great genius, someone we all physicists admire to become.

Whenever you heard about Einstein, you think about complex physics equations people call those people like Einstein, who perform an outstanding job in STEMS or any subject or that whose IQ is above 162.

But did you know that Einstein was more than a Physics genius; he was a creative, sensitive, and curious person. You all must’ve heard or read his theory of relativity, but today we will learn about Einstein’s theory of love.


Scientists' new findings may change our perception of the black holes.

What have we known about black holes so far?

They are one of the powerful objects in the galaxy, spinning in the center of almost all galaxies, and they emit (yes! they emit) strong x-rays or gamma rays.

But hold on, cause that’s not all. They can move from their place too.

Researchers have discovered the clearest case to date of a supermassive black hole in motion. Galaxy J0437+2456 is thought to be home to a supermassive, moving black hole.

The galaxy J0437+2456 is located 230 million light-years away…


Recent work of astronomers proved it was more than just a movie.

Remember the movie Prometheus, the scene where Dr. Shaw and Dr. Holloway brief scientists about their discovery of a star system using ancient drawings.

Well, you are in luck! Because it happened in reality. Like in the movie, scientists discovered a star system using ancient observations.

A team of astronomers from Vanderbilt University sketched the best picture of the RV Tauri variable (RV Tauri variables are the luminous variable stars that have distinctive light variations with alternating deep and shallow minima), a rare type of steller binary, in…


Software failure or an alien interaction?

Last Sunday, the Hubble telescope entered safe mode shortly after 4 a.m. EST, following the detection of a software error within the spacecraft's main computer.

Software engineers were surprised when, they discovered two main things about the telescope during safe mode.

The Hubble telescope was put into orbit in 1990 since been instrumental in unlocking the secrets of our dark Universe.


Scientists are surprised to see the second atmosphere of the planet.

Studying exoplanets is an active field in Astronomy, astronomers around the world researching exoplanets especially the one around red dwarf stars.

On Thursday, NASA released a new founding a group of scientists using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has found a planet orbiting a red dwarf star that may have lost its atmosphere and formed a secondary one through volcanism.

Gliese 1132b or GJ 1132b is a planet around a star GJ 1132 was discovered five years ago. It’s just 41 light-years away from us, its a rocky planet with…


The observation was made using satellite data from August 2014.

Wow!

A space hurricane was observed above our planet’s surface and it was the first time that scientists spotted this phenomenal event passed over the north pole.

The discovery was made possible by scientists from Shandong University in China during retrospective analyses, using the satellite data from August 2014.

What is a space hurricane?

A space hurricane is a result of an interaction between the solar wind and Earth’s magnetic field, it was invisible to the naked eye. …


Are you willing to join the data science hype?

I believe that we do not know anything for certain, but everything probably. -Mathematician Christiaan Huygens.

Data science is in the hype, and let’s be real everyone wants to dive into it because of the attraction it shows, I was also mesmerized by its charm and dive deep. I told you all about my journey.

Well, now I realized I can get a job after a few months when I start in data science, but I didn’t.

So, I thought, I’m going to lay out a plan for someone who doesn’t…


Is Universe finally revealing itself?

Are we alone?

Very exciting questions? I always wonder why we become very excited whenever we heard about the existence of alien life. Well, guess we don’t like to be alone in this Universe, or do we?

I got excited too when I read about, Astronomers have found a signal from a most distant comic jet when Universe was 780 million years old.

A question crossed my mind after reading this article, Is Universe revealing itself?

Maybe yes.

But it is taking baby steps.

These signals travel 13 billion light-years (a light-year is a distance…


Rocky Super-Earth planet called Gliese 486b

This is every astronomer’s dream to study rocky planet atmospheres which could support human life outside the solar system. Well, we exactly didn’t find a planet with alien life, but astronomers do find a new planet called Gliese 486b, and it is only 26.3 light-years away which orbits around a nearby star.

An international team of astronomers published their findings in Science. According to scientists, the third closest rock exoplanet ever discovered is close to the atmosphere, so due to its high temperature, life-friendly conditions are unlikely to exist.
