Scientists say that Mercury has wrinkles because it is declining in size

Many scientists have assumed Mercury is decreasing over billions of years, but recent evidence reveals it may still be, leaving fractured creases. In an editorial for The Conversation, planetary scientist David Rothery, a professor at the UK’s Open University and co-author of a Nature Geoscience publication, suggested that Mercury’s crust creases may be caused by ongoing cooling and...

Nobel Prize in physics awarded to 3 scientists who glimpsed the inner world of atoms with tiny light pulses

Three scientists who produced light pulses so brief that they may be used to observe the inner workings of atoms have been granted the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics. For figuring out how to produce light pulses measured in attoseconds, or one quintillionth of a second, Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz, and Anne L’Huillier will split the 11 million Swedish krona ($1.02 million) prize, the Royal...

It appears that India’s moon lander has died

India made history last month when it became just the fourth nation to successfully land softly on the moon. Subsequently, the nation’s Vikram lander shown its prowess by releasing a rover and even using its engines to elevate itself to a height of 15 inches above the earth before gently touching down once more. A few days later, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) crew put Vikram...

Gazing into the past: Exploring the benefits of the James Webb Space Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a powerful tool for astronomers. It will allow us to explore the distant universe and gain insight into the formation of galaxies, stars, and planets. Its unprecedented resolution and sensitivity will enable us to study the earliest stages of the universe and the formation of the first stars and galaxies.

Space exploration: The possibilities of what lies ahead

Space exploration has opened up a world of possibilities. From discovering new planets to learning more about our own, the potential for new discoveries is endless. We have only scratched the surface of what lies ahead in the field of space exploration. Who knows what amazing findings await us in the years to come?

A startup wants to manufacture drugs in space using robots

Microgravity might hold the key to developing novel pharmaceuticals. With its robot-run orbital pharmaceutical lab, a business co-founded by a SpaceX veteran wants to kickstart the future of space manufacturing. The major advantage of Varda’s strategy, according to Bloomberg in a feature of the Los Angeles-based Varda Space Industries, is that atoms and molecules behave differently under...
