Ancient Romans Concrete Technique Deciphered, Researchers Upbeat

A 2,000-year-old Roman concrete harbor structure, made from volcanic ash, lime and seawater by Romans has been cracked of its secret ingredients by modern minerologists using X-ray and Advanced Light Source (ALS). A team of researchers working at the Berkeley Lab used X-rays to study samples of Roman concrete at microscopic level to learn about the mineral cements. The Lab’s ...

Scientists Find Moon Orbiting 3rd Dwarf Planet in Kuiper Belt

Using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope astronomers found a moon orbiting the third largest dwarf planet, 2007 OR10. The pair resides in the frigid outskirts of our solar system the Kuiper Belt, a realm of icy debris left over from our solar system’s formation 4.6 billion years ago. With this discovery, most of the known dwarf planets in the Kuiper Belt ...

NASA’s Hubble Finds 2 Tiny Dwarf Galaxies

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has sent images of two tiny dwarf galaxies that have wandered from a vast cosmic wilderness into a nearby “big city” packed with galaxies, ahead of starting a firestorm of star birth. After being quiescent for billions of years, the galaxies, called Pisces A and B, are late bloomers because they have spent most of their ...

Bizarre ‘Frankenstein’ Galaxy Found 250 Mln Light Years Away

  About 250 million light years away from our universe, an enormous, bizarre galaxy possibly formed from the parts of other galaxies, was found using NASA telescopes and other observatories. A new study to be published in the Astrophysical Journal reveals the secret of UGC 1382, a galaxy that had originally been thought to be old, small and typical. Instead, ...

Life’s Possible in 3 New Exoplanets: MIT Team

Three planets orbiting an ultracool dwarf star 40 light years away from Earth could become the next space colony targets with size and temperature comparable to those of Earth and Venus, perhaps the best livable planets found ever. An international team of astronomers from MIT, the University of Liège in Belgium, and elsewhere have detected the three planets using TRAPPIST ...

Pluto Could be Hosting Alien Life, says UK Physicist

Ruling out humans-like existence on any planet in our galaxy, UK scientists said alien life forms could be living in the sub-surface of Pluto. Based on a possible subterranean sea underneath the glaciers as shown in New Horizons mission which passed by the dwarf planet recently, they are confident enough that the the warm sub-surface could be hosting life in ...

NASA’s LADEE Spacecraft Confirms Neon on Moon Surface For Sure

A speculation for decades that the moon’s thin atmosphere contains neon, which is known for use in electric signs on Earth with its typical characteristsics of intense glow has come true finally with NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) spacecraft confirming the existence of the gas for the first time. The speculation has been there since the Apollo ...
