NASA's new planet-hunting mission, poised to launch Monday, aims to advance the search for extraterrestrial life by scanning the skies for nearby, Earth-like planets.

"This invisible, mysterious substance is the most dominant aspect of any galaxy. So finding a galaxy without it is unexpected. It challenges the standard ideas of how we think galaxies work, and it shows that dark matter is real: it has its own separate existence apart from other components of galaxies. This result also suggests that there may be more than one way to form a galaxy."

The Tiangong-1 was part of China's ambitious space programme, and the prototype for a manned station in 2022. It was put into orbit in 2011 and five years later completed its mission, after which it was expected to fall back to Earth. Time and place of impact are hard to predict as it is no longer controlled. The latest estimate for re-entry is between 30 March and 2 April. Most of the station is likely to burn up in the atmosphere but some debris could survive to hit the surface of the Earth.

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million years earlier and were not as deep as once thought.

Temperatures at the North Pole are about to reach or possibly exceed the freezing point this week as the North Atlantic and the North Pacific Oceans inject unusually mild air into the Arctic. Not coincidentally, Arctic sea ice is at record low levels.

The biggest black holes in the Universe are growing faster than the rate of stars being formed in their galaxies, according to two new studies using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes.

New Horizons, the first NASA spacecraft to fly by Pluto, is still making history as it cruises deeper into the distant edges of the Solar System. Late last year, the little probe used one of its cameras to take a picture of a galactic star cluster — officially snapping the most distant picture from Earth ever made.

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch was remarkably successful. But what do you think of the Tesla car now in orbit around the Earth?

Elon Musk's most powerful rocket so far is finally ready for launch. The Falcon Heavy spacecraft is scheduled to take off from its Cape Canaveral, Florida, launchpad on February 6. The launch comes after the Federal Aviation Authority approved SpaceX's application for a licence. It is SpaceX's most ambitious but also riskiest launch so far.

Elon Musk dreams of creating a million-person city on Mars. But first, the SpaceX and Tesla founder is going to need a small group of people with an unusual genetic trait in common; resistance to radiation. Radiation resistance in humans and animals is something we know little about, although we know it exists. At the moment, resistance tests are used to try and predict how much radiation cancer patients can survive, but one day this could be an important decider of who gets to venture into space. Our Earth is protected from the harmful radiation from the Sun by our magnetic field, but astronauts that leave the planet will be bombarded with the dangerous particles.

The spectacle of the lunar disk slipping into Earth's shadow and turning a deep shade of red is often more striking and engaging than one might think. What's more, when the moon is entering into and later emerging out of Earth's shadow, secondary phenomena may be overlooked, but these additional features of the eclipse are worth looking out for.

Draft US budget proposals will eliminate Nasa spending on the International Space Station by 2025. Nasa currently contributes $3 to $4 billion a year to the ISS project, which is a vital hub for international space science and is anticipated to reach the end of its operational life in 2028.

The Falcon Heavy rocket roared to life on Wednesday at 12:30 pm Eastern, as SpaceX fired up the 27 Merlin engines that power the triple-booster rocket at Kennedy Space Center. Perched atop what CEO Elon Musk claims will be the most powerful lift vehicle in the world is the billionaire’s Tesla Roadster, which will launch toward a Mars elliptical orbit on the Falcon Heavy’s upcoming maiden flight.

Asteroid 2002 AJ129 will make a close approach to Earth on Feb. 4, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. PST (4:30 p.m. EST / 21:30 UTC). At the time of closest approach, the asteroid will be no closer than 10 times the distance between Earth and the Moon (about 2.6 million miles, or 4.2 million kilometers).

What Dundas saw that day, and subsequently found at seven other sites, are steep cliffs, up to 100 meters tall, that expose what appears to be nearly pure ice. The discovery points to large stores of underground ice buried only a meter or two below the surface at surprisingly low martian latitudes. “This kind of ice is more widespread than previously thought,” says Dundas, who, with his co-authors, describes the cliffs this week in Science. Each cliff seems to be the naked face of a glacier, tantalizing scientists with the promise of a layer-cake record of past martian climates and space enthusiasts with a potential resource for future human bases.

We are proud to announce a new Redshift Mac version called “Redshift Premium – Astronomy”


Redshift Planetarium Software has shared a link

We are pleased to account a Redshift Mac version called “Redshift Premium – Astronomy” which replaces the existing Mac app. It has many of the Premium features the “old” Mac version didn’t have, like telescope control and observation planner, plus a brand-new multi-window mode to display celestial events simultaneously from different perspectives. The introduction price will be 39.99 € (34,99 GBP, 35,99 USD). From January 22nd the price will be 49.99 € (43.99 GBP, 44.99 USD).

Locate a spot of land laid bare by time, and you have a direct line of sight on Mars' subterranean layers—and any ice deposited there. Now, scientists have discovered such a site. In fact, with the help of HiRISE, a powerful camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, they've found several.

Be sure to watch for Jupiter and Mars before dawn around January 9, 10, 11 and 12. The waning moon will close in, then sweep past them, in the sky.

This is SpaceX's third classified mission, and arguably its most secretive flight.
