NASA’s Juno mission is less than one month from its final destination Jupiter

Countdown has begun for Juno mission’s arrival at gas giant Jupiter. It is just a month away from the final destination. The NASA spacecraft is due to enter a polar orbit surrounding tour solar system’s most huge planet on July 4.

Juno aims to unlock the planet’s origins and evolution, shedding light on the earliest days of our solar system while providing important insights within the life of huge planets in general. This will help scientists in their efforts of identifying and examining the cousins of Jupiter’s across the universe.

Rising temperature in Arctic linked to summer ice melt in Greenland

Rising temperature in Arctic linked to summer ice melt in Greenland

A latest study that appeared in Nature Communications has disclosed that the Arctic’s rising temperature could be linked to Greenland’s summer ice melt.

Climatologists have apparently found traces of Arctic amplification. They noticed that faster warming of the Arctic area in comparison to other places in the Northern Hemisphere is leading to the gradual disappearance of the sea ice.

Exploration of Mars: NASA, UAE to share Research and Scientific Instruments under New Deal

Earlier, there were reports that NASA may drop its idea to explore Mars by 2030s, but the US space agency’s new deal with the United Arab Emirates has proved that the mission is still a priority.

NASA signed the agreement on Sunday in Abu Dhabi to collaborate on space exploration. Under the deal, space agencies of the two countries will share scientific instruments and research.

‘Spot the Station’ program by NASA helps you spot ISS in night sky

Do you know the International Space Station (ISS) could be visible from anywhere from the Earth? While observing sky at night, you might have seen something moving all of sudden in a still night sky, like a star that crashes or a meteorite that passes in close proximity to our planet. But weight, this could be the ISS.

NASA collaborates with top scientists for 3-year campaign to gather new data on coral reefs

NASA has a new plan to study coral reefs like never before. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the space agency and top international scientists launched a three-year campaign on Thursday, under which they will view coral reefs from 23,000 feet above.

The scientists will map corals from around the planet using high-tech instruments mounted on aircraft. They believe it will allow them understand how global warming, pollution in oceans and acidification is impacting these ecosystems.

NASA to get wider view of coral reefs from altitude of 23,000 fee

American space agency NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has launched a three-year campaign to collect new data on world’s coral reefs like never before.

NASA researchers and top scientists from around the globe are trying to get a wider view of the world’s coral reefs, from an altitude of around 23,000 feet.

The research team will use specially-designed, state-of-the-art instruments on high-flying aircraft to map massive swaths of coral all over the world in order to better understand how global warming and environmental changes are affecting these vital ecosystems.

Scientists discover hot Jupiter threatened by its star

Scientists discover hot Jupiter threatened by its star

A hot Jupiter, named PTFO8–8695 b, is a recently discovered planet believed to be the youngest, but there is something surprising about it. The planet is some 1,100 light-years from Earth and far too near to the star it orbits, this make it hot and likely in danger.
