NASA blamed for shutting down video to coverup UFO sighting

A new UFO sighting has been claimed by UFO hunters. A live streaming video from the International Space Station (ISS) on July 9 has captured an unexplained object coming from space and moving towards earth. But then all of sudden the video feed was cut and its being said that NASA has cut the video feed.

After the video was being cut, the message started to appear on the screen that a temporary technical glitch has taken place. This is not the first time when people have watched NASA’s space station live feed and claimed of seeing strange objects nearby.

How Juno Probe sees Jupiter? NASA Releases First In-orbit View

NASA’s Juno spacecraft, which has started orbiting Jupiter, has beamed back first image of the most massive planet in the solar system. The Jovian orbiter captured the image on July 10 using its JunoCam camera.

The image taken shows Great Red Spot and three moons- Io, Europa and Ganymede- of Jupiter. Other atmosphere features are also visible in the picture. NASA released the image on Tuesday for space enthusiasts. It also revealed that the probe will capture the first high-resolution picture of the planet after a few weeks from now.

ISS getting an important piece of cargo next week

Next week, the International Space Station (ISS) is getting an essential part of cargo: a new International Docking Adapter, or IDA, enabling future crewed spacecraft to dock with the station automatically.

The installation of the huge metallic ring, measuring 63 inches in diameter, will ultimately be done on the Harmony module. This is the second ever IDA going into space, though the first one never in really made it to orbit as it got vanished when the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying it to the station disintegrated at the time of launch in June last year.

EPIC once Again Captures Moon Crossing Earth's face

A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite records a glance of the moon moving in front of the sunlit side of Earth for the second time within a year.

Adam Szabo, DSCOVR project scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said it is for the second time in DSCOVR’s life that the moon moved between the spacecraft and Earth. Szabo said the project captured the event on July 5 having the same cadence and spatial resolution like that of the first 'lunar photobomb' of previous year.

China’s space station may re-enter the Earth like a huge fireball

China reportedly lost contact with its space station and expect that it may rush toward the Earth looking like a fiery ball of hot metal. Tiangong-1 space station was launched into space in 2011 and is likely to return to our planet in controlled crash in the ocean. However, there lingers fear; if the crash goes uncontrolled, it could cause damage to inhabited areas.
