Welcome!
Here you will find up to date astronomy news from all over the galaxy 🌔

For today's moment we have such interesting news:

1. Galaxy that has got no dark matter has been discovered.

Astronomers from the Netherlands in cooperation with colleagues from other countries, have discovered that the galaxy that does not contain traces of dark matter. It's called AGC 114905. 

2.  Space tourism recovery

On the December, 8 Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa and Yozo Hirano are going to the ISS. They will fly to space on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft from Baikanur where the first person in space Yuri Gagarin was sent. Also it’s known that they are going to make a first ever made painting using brushes.

3. Mysterious cube has been detected on the far side of the moon

Chinese rover Yutu 2 spotted a mysterious object on the horizon as it drove through the Von Karman crater on the opposite side of the moon. He noticed a cube-shaped object on the horizon to the north and about 80 meters away in November.

4. Mars on Israel

Mars model becomes truth in Israel. It takes place at crater Ramon. Scientists are conducting simulations on Earth to better anticipate what could go wrong. They have made 200 researches in 20 days and now we are waiting for NASA to show us the results.

It's preferred that you have one topic per thread, so that followup discussion can be kept straight.

(it would also avoid the jumbling of the links that has occurred, and which I have been unable to fix)

Going the distance to confirm a galaxy with almost no dark matter:

Three years ago, a team of astronomers led by Yale’s Pieter van Dokkum surprised the scientific community with the discovery of a far-off galaxy that contained little or no dark matter.

The discovery, made using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, had the potential to upend well-established theories about how galaxies form and evolve. That is because dark matter — the invisible scaffolding that accounts for most of the universe’s mass — is considered essential for creating and shaping galaxies.

But how could a galaxy exist with almost no dark matter? Some astronomers speculated the finding was incorrect. Specifically, they questioned the accuracy of distance measurements from Earth to NGC 1052-DF2 — the galaxy with no dark matter.

Now, in a new study published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, van Dokkum and Yale graduate student Zili Shen have pinpointed the distance to DF2 and confirmed the earlier finding. MORE AT LINK..............

Mystery Cube Found on The Far Side of The Moon Is Probably Not an 'Alien Hut'

 

 

There's something strange in the lunar neighborhood.

In its exploration of the Von Kármán Crater on the far side of the Moon, China's Yutu 2 rover has spotted a peculiar object on the horizon. In a very blurry image, it appears to be a cube-shaped protrusion in an otherwise relatively featureless landscape.

 

On a post on social network Weixin, China National Space Administration outreach program Our Space referred to it as a "mysterious hut".

"Was it a home built by aliens after the crash landing?" the post playfully speculates. "Or is it the pioneer spacecraft of the predecessors to explore the Moon?"

The answer is that it is likely neither of those things, but something that we know the Moon has in abundance: rocks. We won't know for sure, however, until Yutu 2 can close the intervening 80-meter (260-foot) distance to study it up close – a process that will take another two or three months.  MORE AT LINK.....
