CUA’s promising new commercial aerospace technologies

Champaign-Urbana Aerospace (CUA) aims to identify, develop, and distribute promising new commercial aerospace technologies. Founded in 1998, CUA’s 10,000 sq...

Scientific advancements made by observing two black holes colliding

Observing two black holes colliding has provided astronomers with a novel tool to measure black holes in distant galaxies. How did researchers observe these two black holes colliding? The Columbia University scientists devised a potentially more straightforward way of studying black...

SpaceX Crew-3 astronauts return safely to Earth

NASA’s SpaceX Crew-3 astronauts have made a safe return to Earth aboard the Dragon Endurance spacecraft, completing the journey to the International Space Station. NASA’s SpaceX Crew-3 astronauts aboard the Dragon Endurance spacecraft safely landed on Friday, 26 May 2022, in...

Groundbreaking progress made in analysing the type Ia supernovae

Analysing the type Ia supernovae has led scientists from the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research to discover how supernovae would evolve over thousands of years. Researchers have utilised computer modelling technology to demonstrate how a hypothesised type of supernova would...

Life on Mars: Analysing extra-terrestrial samples in Europe

Dr Rain Irshad, Autonomous Systems Lead at RAL Space, discusses what Europe’s first analysis facility for extra-terrestrial samples could tell us about Mars. Understanding more about the prospect of life on Mars could soon be a reality, as the UK...

Spacecraft utilised x-rays from pulsars to navigate in deep space

Researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have developed a way that a spacecraft can use pulsar star signals to navigate in space. The remnants of a collapsed neutron star, called a pulsar, are magnetically charged and can spin anywhere...

Discovering exoplanets using Artificial Intelligence

Astronomers have applied Artificial Intelligence to image recognition in order to predict the effect of interactions between planets, making it possible to discover exoplanets. The majority of exoplanets uncovered to date have been discovered using the transit method. This technique...

Earth’s atmosphere could be a source of lunar water

In a new study, scientists believe that another source of lunar water could involve the Earth’s magnetosphere. Hydrogen and oxygen ions escaping from Earth’s upper atmosphere and combining on the Moon could be one of the sources of the identified...

Solar energy could be used to power a crewed mission to Mars

A research team have analysed different ways of generating power, deciding that solar energy could be used to power a mission to Mars. It can be argued that no other planet in our Solar System has sparked human interest and...

Classifying exoplanet atmospheres to open new field of study

Researchers have identified and classified populations of similar exoplanet atmospheres in order to improve our knowledge of planetary formation. An international team of researchers examined data for 25 exoplanets and discovered a variety of links among the properties of the...

Eruption of a magnetar reveals high-frequency oscillations

An international scientific group has managed to measure for the first-time oscillations in the brightness of a neutron star (magnetar) during its most violent moments. In just a tenth of a second the magnetar released energy equivalent to that produced...
