Washington [US], July 22 (ANI): NASA is making final preparations for its Perseverance Mars rover to collect its first-ever sample of Martian rock, which future planned missions will transport to Earth. The six-wheeled geologist is searching for a scientifically interesting target in a part of Jezero Crater called the "Cratered Floor Fractured Rough."
NASA announced a brand new spacecraft, the NEA Scout. The new spacecraft has completed all its required tests and is one of the payloads which will hitch a ride on the Artemis I, expected to launch in November 2021. Here’s everything you need to know.

A recent study by NASA says that the coastline cities in the US will witness 'dramatic increases in flood number' starting mid- 2030s owing to the 'wobble' in the moon's orbit and the rising sea level - resultant of climate crisis. The study has been undertaken by NASA Sea Level Change Science Team from the University of Hawaii.
A wobble in the Moon’s orbit lasts 18.6 years. This period includes a time-amplifying phase which increases high tides and their destructive effect. NASA predicts that one such period will occur in the mid-2030s. Moreover, when combined with the rising sea levels, it could lead to flooding across the world. Climate change and possible flooding […]
Space agency NASA recently shared a collage of their interns on Twitter and the photo has rekindled the debate on science vs religion. NASA had posted a reminder that the last day for fall applications for its internships was on July 10. Among the photos shared by NASA was the image of an Indian-American girl, […]
A new study shows methane gas wafting from Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons is a sure shot sign of alien life. NASA’s Saturn orbiter Cassini discovered several geysers blasting water ice particles into space in 2005. It occurred from the tiger stripe fractures near the south pole of Enceladus. Read to know all about it. […]
Washington DC [US], July 2 (ANI): NASA's newest six-wheeled robot on Mars, the Perseverance rover, is beginning an epic journey across a crater floor seeking signs of ancient life, the US space agency announced on Thursday.
Washington [US], June 27 (ANI): Scientists from the University of Michigan have developed an innovative way to use the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) satellite data to track the movement of tiny pieces of plastic in the ocean.
Humans would need to figure out housing, air, water, and food if they were to live on Mars. What about the laundry, though? NASA and Procter & Gamble, the creator of the Tide laundry brand, are collaborating to find out how to do laundry in space. “Tide has signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA […]
NASA is planning to send a robot rover named VIPER to the Moon. The rover will be launched in late 2023 for a 100-day mission. VIPER will “search for ice and other resources on and below the lunar surface,” according to the space agency. Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover (VIPER) is a mid-sized rover. The […]
