Facial pareidolia is the human tendency or illusion of seeing facial structures in an everyday objects – such as seeing the “man in the Moon,” or the face of Jesus on a piece of toast. But here’s a newly found crater on Mars that might be a case of ‘bear-adoilia.’ There’s no denying, the crater

Today, multiple space agencies are investigating cutting-edge propulsion ideas that will allow for rapid transits to other bodies in the Solar System. These include NASA’s Nuclear-Thermal or Nuclear-Electric Propulsion (NTP/NEP) concepts that could enable transit times to Mars in 100 days (or even 45) and a nuclear-powered Chinese spacecraft that could explore Neptune and its

In a recent study published in Astronomy and Astrophysical Letters, a team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) used various computer models to examine 69 confirmed binary black holes to help determine their origin and found their data results changed based on the model’s configurations. Essentially, the input consistently altered the output,

A new analysis of dust retrieved from the Moon suggests that water bound up in the lunar surface could originate with the Sun. More specifically, it could be the result of bombardment of hydrogen ions from the solar wind, slamming into the lunar surface, interacting with mineral oxides, and bonding with the dislodged oxygen. The

A close study of 40 years’ worth of data has revealed something a little hinky going on with Jupiter. According to a wealth of information collected by both ground- and space-based telescopes, the temperature in Jupiter’s upper troposphere exhibits regular fluctuations that don’t seem to be tied to any seasonal variations. This surprising and intriguing

The question of whether intelligent alien life exists out there in the broader Milky Way galaxy could be answered by gravitational waves. According to a new paper penned by an international group of scientists and engineers called Applied Physics, Earth-based detectors such as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) should – theoretically – be
