Is Asteroid Mining Really important For Our Plans to Colonize The Red Planet?

Over the last decade or so Mars has been the center of attraction for space agencies and private companies. Private firms like SpaceX have even openly expressed their desire to one colonize the red planet. But these planned expeditions to the planet have delayed for certain reasons. Many personalities including the veteran astronaut Buzz Aldrin ...

An Extremely Hot Planet That Consumes All The Visible Light

Extremely Hot Planet

While looking for planets with life sustaining qualities, we have just found a planet where we do not want to go. An international research team has recently discovered a distinctive characteristic of an extensively studied exoplanet known as WASP-12b. The study shows that the extra-solar planet reflects absolutely no light which is making it appear as a pitch ...

A New Technique To Make Nuclear Fusion More Powerful

Nuclear Fusion More Powerful

Scientists at MIT develop a new technique to make plasma fuel hot enough in order to produce significant nuclear fusion power. While using nuclear fusion to power offices and homes might still be a way off, this new plasma marks a big step towards fusion power. It has brought limitless (almost) clean energy one step closer ...
