Hadfield’s Row with Doctors before His Space Career Started

Hadfield’s Row with Doctors before His Space Career Started

Recently, Chris Hadfield opened up on how he was kept from space due to a row.

Yes! The well-known former astronaut had got into a controversy with space-program doctors some months before he could become the International Space Station's commander.

He had thus denied tendering to surgery. The fight had come handy to scrubbing the Canadian legend from his now-eminent mission.

Details related to the impasse have been uncovered in a book by the former astronaut. The book could come at shelves on October 29 this year.

Massimino Comes Up with Evaluation of “Gravity”

"Gravity", the movie that has been released just now, has gained huge appreciation by the general mass. To the interest of one and all, the movie that has come out to be different from the earlier logical films has been reviewed by Mike Massimino.

Massimino from Columbia University Engineering School is a former astronaut, who has himself visited space and experienced what all has been shown (and probably not shown) in the movie.

Opportunity for Aspirants to Become Astronauts

Opportunity for Aspirants to Become Astronauts

While these positions are desirable by uncounted people, only a few are actually able to grab the positions of NASA astronauts.

A recent report has unveiled that people aiming to contribute to their nation by becoming astronauts could now snatch an opportunity again. For the same, neither do they need to pass a physical examination, nor do they require having particular skills. Rather, they are wanted to show up with one of its kind ways to show that they have the ability to withstand the tough competition.

Mark Burnett, Richard Branson's Reality TV Show Offers Space Travel as Reward

Mark Burnett, Richard Branson's Reality TV Show Offers Space Travel as Reward

According to the reports, the NBC is collaborating with producer Mark Burnett and billionaire Richard Branson and hoping to make a space-travel reality show.

The trio is trying to team up to get a `Space Race', a competition series that would send the winner up in SpaceShipTwo, which is a commercial space-travel service from Branson's Virgin Galactic.

Branson said that Virgin Galactic's mission is to democratize space, eventually making commercial space travel affordable and accessible to all.

A Solar Explosion Slammed into Earth's magnetic field on Late Tuesday Night

A Solar Explosion Slammed into Earth's magnetic field on Late Tuesday Night

A powerful solar explosion crashed into Earth's magnetic field on late Tuesday night. The explosion ramped up the Northern Lights across parts of Canada and the United States.

The sun storm blew up on Monday, sending a huge cloud of charged particles streak into space at very high speeds. The cloud was known as a coronal mass ejection or CME. The cloud hit the magnetic field of Earth at around 10 p. m. on Tuesday.

A video of the sun eruption on Monday has been released by NASA, before closing down for the recent government shutdown.

Comet ISON Fails to Live up To Expectations of HiRISE Scientists

Comet ISON

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment has a set target and that are the craters and dunes on Mars. But the HiRISE camera took some time off and targeted at Comet ISON.

The camera has been able to come up certain images of the comet at the time when it was sailing some 8 million miles away from Mars. HiRISE scientists Alan Delamere and Alfred McEwen are not happy as the comet has not lived up to their expectations.

Scientists Propose Novel Theory to Explain Signs of Life in Asteroids

Scientists Propose Novel Theory to Explain Signs of Life in Asteroids

According to the research by scientists, novel theory has been developed that explains the existence of life on an asteroid.

The research by the scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute proved some facts that clearly explain the origin of organic material on an asteroid.

The earlier theory of science, which deals with the astrobiology, states that the temperature on asteroids is suitable enough to sustain liquid water, which is necessary for the formation of the organic molecules.

Mars Land Shows Signs of Explosive Super volcano Eruption in Past

Mars Land Shows Signs of Explosive Super volcano Eruption in Past

After the latest discoveries on the Arabia Terra Region of Mars, scientists are of the view that a super volcano in the past changed the appearance of the red planet.

The layered material found on the planet seems to be the remains of a super volcano, which is capable of producing over 240 cubic miles of material. The shape of the crater found in this region is very unusual and is dubbed as Eden Patera.

SpaceX Launches Falcon 9 with CASSIOPE

SpaceX, the commercial space company of Elon Musk, has proved successful in launching a Falcon 9 rocket into space.

CASSIOPE, a Canadian Space Agency satellite, is on-board the rocket. It has been discovered that Cascade is part of payload of the satellite. Cascade is a prototype in lieu of a super-fast space-borne file-transfer system, which is somewhat a digital courier service.

NASA Seeking to Introduce 3D Printer for Astronauts

NASA Seeking to Introduce 3D Printer for Astronauts

NASA, the well-known US space agency, has been thinking of introducing a 3D printer in the coming year into space. The same would be the first of its kind to be used in space.

The aim of the printer would be to assist astronauts in developing zero-g or zero gravity spare parts and tools.

The report found that the printer holds the potential to cut the future mission costs.
