Researchers Find 3 New Galaxies That Appear to Merge into One

According to a latest research, a trio of prehistoric galaxies has been discovered by the astronomers. The astronomers have found about these galaxies by using the power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

According to the scientists these primordial galaxies have been nestled inside a massive blob of primeval gas. It has also been sighted by the researchers that these galaxies are about 13 billion light-years away from the planet Earth.

Rare Meteorite Contains Plethora of Data about Mars

Rare Meteorite Contains Plethora of Data about Mars

A rare meteorite from Red Planet has disclosed many secrets about the planet ranging from its origin and age.

The 4.4 billion-year-old meteorite was found in the Sahara desert, which has been studied by a group of researchers from Florida State University. Lead researcher Munir Humayun was of the view that the meteorite contains massive amount of data about Mars.

ISON to Reach its Maximum Point of Approach on November 28

ISON to Reach its Maximum Point of Approach on November 28

On November 28, ISON will reach the maximum closest point of approach to the Sun. And it is also believed that the Sun's heat will not have much impact on it.

If the ISON could bear the high temperature of Sun and manage to hold itself together, then it could also be seen through naked eye in the evening sky in the month of December. It can prove to be the greatest comet in past hundred years.

Mars Plays a Role in ‘Refreshing’ Near-Earth Asteroids

Mars Plays a Role in ‘Refreshing’ Near-Earth Asteroids

As per researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, asteroids lying in the asteroid belt are redder as compared to asteroids that enter the earth's atmosphere. Those entering the atmosphere of earth are named as meteorites.

It is considered that cosmic radiation varying the surface material of asteroids has resulted in the color variation. The earth's gravity will have an impact on asteroids that are present near the earth and will not be reddened because of cosmic rays.

Researchers Found evidence of Granite on Red Planet

Researchers Found evidence of Granite on Red Planet

According to a new report, researchers have found stronger evidence of granite on Mars. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology are confused regarding the existence of granite on the surface of the Red Planet.

This new research states that Mars is much more geologically complex planet that ever thought. Researchers have found granite in an ancient Martian Volcano. Feldspar is a mineral, which is found in small quantities in granite. Not only feldspar, scientists also found minerals that are rich in iron and magnesium, universal on the Red Planet.

Comet ISON’s Brightness increased by 10 Times

Comet ISON’s Brightness increased by 10 Times

It was in December 2012 that comet ISON was discovered. At that time, the comet was bright enough as an object at a distance.

It was then speculated that as the comet will come closer, it will get even brighter. In fact, some media reports have also said that the comet ISON's shine will be more than that of moon and it will be the `Comet of the Century'.

Activities that took place after these possibilities made people to lose their hope. It has been said so as when the comet got closer to the sun, it led to the evaporation of water and gases present in the comet.

Telescope Captured Strange Images of Clouds Formed by Dust Particles

Telescope Captured Strange Images of Clouds Formed by Dust Particles

A telescope has captured the images of the odd clouds formed by interstellar dust in an outer space in Chile. These odd clouds are formed in different strange shapes by the winds blowing from nearby hot young stars.

These amazing images of clouds have been formed around the distant star cluster NGC 3572 and are being captured by the European Southern Observatory's La Silla Observatory. Because of the interstellar dust and gas particles present in the outer space, the clouds are formed of the shape of rings and `elephant trunks'.

NASA's chief Close out Space Agency's First Campaign to Commercialize Spaceflight

NASA's chief Close out Space Agency's First Campaign to Commercialize Spaceflight

On Wednesday, the first campaign of the space agency has been closed out by NASA's chief in order to make profit-oriented spaceflight. The above action marks that more ambitious efforts are being put by NASA to make new U. S. spaceships that would be able to send astronauts into orbit and possibly back on the surface of moon.

Rare Photograph of Earth as seen from Saturn Released by NASA

Rare Photograph of Earth as seen from Saturn Released by NASA

An unusual photograph of Earth from the surface of Saturn has been released by Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA. This is the first natural-color photo in which Saturn, its moon and rings, and planets namely, Earth, Venus and Mars can be seen clearly, as per the space agency.

The image has been captured by Cassini spacecraft of NASA. The view can also be seen by human eyes.

Wide-angle photographs, counting to 141 were prepared by Cassini's team to create a panorama. The picture shows 404,880 miles across Saturn and its inner rings system.

NASA Explains Moon’s Rugged Look Using GRAIL Mission

NASA Explains Moon’s Rugged Look Using GRAIL Mission

According to a latest report, by using the details from the NASA's Gravity Recovery and Inside Laboratory (GRAIL) mission, the scientists are trying to figure out or gain a vision of how the facial area of the moon acquired its rough and stony surface.

The scientists are performing their twin mission by using an accurate formation flying technique, which is also helpful in mapping the moon's gravity field.

According to sources, the team of scientists is using GRAIL's gravity maps in order to find thin crust on the moon and also to measure the correct size of the basins.
