Moon’s Near Side has Bigger Craters than the Far Side

Moon’s Near Side has Bigger Craters than the Far Side

A new study has come up with findings to suggest that near side of the moon is largely impacted by craters because of the key differences between the two hemispheres. Scientists have figured out long ago that craters are formed at an even rate on the surfaces of both sides of the moon.

However, the new study has come up with findings that have dispelled the previous belief. It has been discovered by scientists that near side of the moon was highly impacted by an ancient asteroid. And as a result, larger basins were produced on the near side than those on the far side.

Region of Antarctic Ice Dating Back 1.5 Million Years Found

Region of Antarctic Ice Dating Back 1.5 Million Years Found

As per a novel research published in the journal Climate of the Past, it has been unveiled that scientists have discovered a region of Antarctic ice, which is quite old.

If to go as per scientists, the ice dates back 1.5 million years. Lead researcher Hubertus Fischer of the University of Bern has affirmed that they have found the area in the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Grasshoppers, Beetles, Scorpions included in Menu Card of Chef Elie Daviron

Grasshoppers, Beetles, Scorpions included in Menu Card of Chef Elie Daviron

Over 1,900 species of insect are eaten all over the world, mainly in Africa and Asia. Young French chef Elie Daviron has created a buzz at the food places in Paris with his grasshoppers on quail eggs, water scorpions on chicory or beetles with potatoes.

Grasshoppers, beetles, scorpions and two different types of worm i. e. sango and silk are the most recent additions in the menu card of Chef Elie Daviron.

Reason Behind Rise in Size of Black Holes Unveiled

Reason Behind Rise in Size of Black Holes Unveiled

For past many years, astronomers have been working hard in order to know about the reason behind increase in the size of supermassive black holes.

These massive black holes are found in the centre of big galaxies. Astronomers have been seeing them to enormous sizes. It is however, now that study researchers have got to know the reason behind the size increase.

Study researchers were of the view they have been able to reach at the above given result with the help of CSIRO's Parkes radio telescope.

Pesticides Likely Causing Stress amongst Bees

Pesticides Likely Causing Stress amongst Bees

A latest study conducted by the Royal Holloway University of London's researchers has suggested how bees tended to face physiological stress due to pesticides.

The team of researchers suspected that the population of bees was probably being indirectly affected by the pesticide levels. The normal bee behaviour, according to Dr. Nigel Raine's belief, was impacted hugely by pesticides.

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.

Scientists say that Black Holes have Hair

As per a new study, scientists revealed that the black holes may have "hair".

Black hole is a region in space with a huge gravitational field that no matter or radiation can escape through it.

Scientists from the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, and IST, Lisbon believes that the original theory related to the black holes must be changed.

Basically, the black holes are defined by the two properties - mass and angular momentum. Despite of the two properties, they are virtually identical in terms of appearance.

NASA to Launch 3-D Printer into Space

NASA to Launch 3-D Printer into Space

With a 3-D printer to be launched next year, the astronauts will not require to take every tool they might need in the space from Earth. NASA is in the final stages of launching this game changer in the size of a toaster.

With the help of this 3-D printer, numerous designs could be created. The printer will extrude various plastic layers upon layers from long coiled strands.

These strands are extensively used by the jewellery makers for making exquisite jewellery and also by the doctors for creating replacement joints.

The Dragon Awakens: Explosion from Supermassive Black Hole at Heart of Galaxy Revealed

The Dragon Awakens: Explosion from Supermassive Black Hole at Heart of Galaxy Revealed

According to the astronomers from the University of Sydney, a massive black hole which was situated in the heart of The Milky Way galaxy erupted with such a force that it illuminated a cloud located 200,000 light years away, about two million years ago.

The researchers found the clues for their discovery from a lacy thread of gas called Magellanic Stream, which comprises mostly of hydrogen.
