And all you have to do is look at that and picture 3 Earths next to each other for scale.
All sky laser SETI
There is a link to the project page. Give them $10,000 and you can attend a party.
Cassini set for its grand finale over the next few days!
Tomorrow in fact
So 4:54 am PDT is 6:54 Central.
Meanwhile: If the Moon were only one pixel
About 10 minutes from the end
Final signal has arrived. RIP Cassini
I can't get anything live. Not on youtube, not on NASA tv.
100 images from Cassini
This is Enceladus.
Might have a new dwarf planet
Roughyl Ceres sized and twice the distance of Neptune.
Yeah it says it in the first paragraph, there are probably thousands of these planetoids out there, so a discovery of one more is hardly even news nowadays. Now if the theorised Neptune sized world was discovered way out there, that would be news!
The James Webb telescope is delayed until Spring 2019
We've had a visitor
Isn't that the course that's supposed to slingshot it back in time if it's going warp speed?
I was thinking about Rendezvous with Rama while reading that article and then they mentioned it lol.
Close "habitable" (by temperatures) exoplanet discovered - less than 11 light years away in this case - system is Ross 128:
NEW Earth-sized planet with Earth-like temperatures, 11 light years away
"the newly-discovered Ross 128 is less prone to flares, allowing its planets to potentially foster life unharmed."
To become closer to Earth than the Centauri system in only 79,000 years
edit: hah, I didn't bother to look at the most recent post after I googled the thread, Iron_lord beat me to it!
Billions of exoplanets?
Depending on the number of stars in the galaxy it could be a trillion.
Jupiter is beautiful.
...in an oily-inkspots-in-water kind of way.
Spacecraft headed for an asteroid takes a pic of Earth and The Moon.
Anybody watching the wolf moon? It's been super clear and bright, lots of snow on the ground to reflect the light, and I think I could read a book by moonlight the last few nights.
Indeed. The Wolf Moon has been gorgeous.
Jan. 31st will feature the month's second full moon, and it comes with a total lunar eclipse, or Blood Moon.
We might have our first look at the event horizon of a black hole
