TL;DR, Did you ever come across an aurora?

Well, scientists found a new behavior in these lights.

I knew there was something there. I knew it was different and unique — Dr.Jaynes, co-author of the study

What is Aurora?

Commonly known as northern or southern lights, an aurora is a natural light display that shimmers in the sky. They have different colors like blue, red, yellow, green, and orange lights. They shift gently and change shape like softly blowing curtains.


Active Volcanos on Mars Hint Possibility of Life

According to a new study by researchers at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory and the Planetary Science Institute, evidence of recent volcanic activity on Mars shows that eruptions could have taken place in the past 50,000 years.

Mars was once a hot spot for volcanic activity — around 3 billion to 4 billion years ago. A team of scientists now suspects Mars could still be volcanically active, after spotting what may be evidence of a recent eruption dating to within the last 50,000 years.

The discovery could have implications for finding signs of microbial life on the…


Research revealed a new measurement type for the expansion rate.

A new study revealed that we might be able to create a new measurement of the Universe expansion rate by observing black hole and neutron star collision.

As an astrophysicist, I’m researching for over two years about the expansion of the Universe; even my master's thesis was on the energy density of the Universe using Friedmann equations.

This new research is now giving hope for more accurate answers.

Did you know?

How we’ve calculated the expansion so far?

We have two ways to measure the expansion of the Universe, measuring the brightness and speed of pulsating and exploding stars and looking at fluctuations in radiation from the…


With the rising competition of startups, you need to prepare yourself best.

To become an entrepreneur means freedom to the work you want to do at your own pace. I know many people who are starting their own business, and the reason is they have a new and demanding business idea.

So, after reading a dozen of articles on how to start a new startup business, from these articles, I find five common rules for a successful startup.

Here are the five most important rules for a successful startup.

Rule #5. Use the web as free marketing of your business.


Coming with a speed of 1,800,000kph, it is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field.

Classified as a G1 storm, this solar storm is expected to reach Earth on Sunday, May 2, and it may affect the satellite traffic.

What is the solar storm?

A solar storm or geomagnetic storm occurs when the Sun emits a huge burst of energy in the form of solar flares and coronal mass ejection; When a CME or high-speed stream arrives at Earth, it buffets the magnetosphere. If the arriving solar magnetic field is directed southward, it interacts strongly with the oppositely oriented magnetic field of the Earth; source.

The most common example of solar flare interaction on Earth are Northern lights or Aurora…

Happy Birthday, Hubble!!

The Hubble Space team is celebrating 31 years of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope with a release of a beautiful picture of a hot star on the edge of destruction; Hubble was launched on 24–25 April 1990, from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

After a month of its launch, Hubble send a long-awaited picture. The first-light image of a star cluster about 1,300 light-years from Earth using the Wide Field/Planetary Camera (WFPC); source.

Yes, the same Wide Field camera that experienced an unexpected error.

The team shared an image of a…


Nature never fails to surprise me!

A new type of black hole is discovered, and surprisingly it is very close to our solar system.

The team at Ohio State University discovered this new type of black hole, which is 1500 light-years away from Earth. This black hole is found in the milky way constellation, known as Monoceros; this is the closest black hole to our planet ever found.

Another OSU discovery?

The team named it the Unicorn (since it is the rare kind of black hole). The study has been accepted for publication in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.


You may be reading this article as a historic announcement in the future.

Dear My Future Self,

Hope you’re doing the same as usual. Is it 2026? No, it’s already passed, then you have already met an Alien species, and no I’m not talking about Mrs. Doe, but a real Alien

Since I don’t know how they look, I can’t describe their features. Hopefully not like Alien vs Predator but like Thor (possibly).

Do write back to tell me how scientists found an alien planet.

I read about so many discoveries this month.

So, I thought about writing myself…


How modern telescopes are helpful for astronomers in finding the answers.

Studying the x-ray to radio waves emission in space is one of the most important topics in astronomy.

Especially when the astronomers have the tools which can get the accurate result, then the study becomes very exciting and reveal astonishing results.

A discovery using the telescope Low-Frequency array (LOFAR) telescope, astronomers have found that fast radio bursts include radio waves at frequencies lower than ever detected before.
