  1. I guess after China's success in the Moon landing and probe taking lots of space company all over the world begins the exploration which surely could lead humanity to space colonization. In the UK, for example, it has begun - there is a company represents a new breed of private rocket companies developing the next generation of launch vehicles for the burgeoning small satellite market.
  2. According to chemists, a lot of chances are needed for protein to form in space. In order for hemolithin to form naturally in the found configuration, glycine in cosmic dust grains is first required. After that, heating by molecular clouds could lead to the fact that the glycine units began to bind into polymer chains, which at some point evolved into fully formed proteins.
  3. Among the 24 candidates for a "super-habitable" planet, none of them meet all the criteria. Planets do not have to be very old to be habitable, otherwise they will exhaust geothermal heat and lose their protective geomagnetic fields. The earth is about 4.5 billion years old, but researchers argue that the optimal place for life is on a planet that is between 5 and 8 billion years old.
  4. Not all matter is drawn into the hole. It forms the so-called accretion disk - a bright cloud of gas and other substances. It is because of this disk that the galaxies glow so brightly - it glows brighter than 300 trillion suns. It is also the cause of turbulence. It is not yet completely clear whether all the gas pushed outward will leave the galaxy, or whether it will be swallowed up by a black hole.
  5. The closest known approach to Apophis will occur on April 13, 2029, when the asteroid is about 31,000 kilometers from the Earth's surface. Distance, astronomically, a hair's breadth, five times the radius of the Earth, ten times closer than the Moon, and even closer than some artificial satellites.
  6. No one hasn't posted the news - so I'll try. NASA has already selected astronauts for Artemis mission. In the final stage of selection for the Artemis mission, NASA selected the 18 best candidates who are already members of the astronaut team https://spaceflightnow.com/2020/12/09/nasa-names-18-astronauts-for-artemis-moon-missions/
  7. The probe has already set two new records - for the speed of movement of the man-made spacecraft 393 044 km / h and for temperature - the protective screen, under which all scientific instruments are located, heated up to 612 ° С, while its interior and scientific equipment remained at the temperature about 30 ° C.
  8. Dr. Yamagishi and his team came to this conclusion by placing dried Deinococcus colonies on display panels outside the ISS. Samples of various thicknesses were exposed to the space environment for one, two, or three years, and then tested for their survival. Three years later, the researchers found that all colonies larger than 0.5 mm had partially survived in space. Observations show that although the bacteria on the surface of the aggregate died, it created a protective layer for the bacteria underneath, ensuring the survival of the colony. Using survival data after one, two, and three years
  9. The main influence is on technical systems. As a result, failures in the electric power system or equipment generally fail. This is most relevant for northern and southern countries. So in 1989, the local power grid in Quebec went out of order, and, accordingly, the entire population of Quebec was without electricity for 9 hours. The next largest loss is the impact on aviation associated with the recently opened transpolar routes that fly passengers from Europe to the United States. When a magnetic storm, a solar flare, and particle ejection occurs, an increase in the radiation background occu
  10. What do astronomers think they’ll capture with the James Webb telescope?
  11. NASA aims to reach Mars by 2035, but I don't believe NASA, I guess SpaceX will be the first to send the first human there.
  12. The water persists both on the dark and light side so the new settlement can be built on whenever we want.
