NASA astronomers discover rare double asteroid

The observations revealed two distinct lobes, but the asteroid’s orientation was such that scientists could not see if the two bodies were separate or joined.

NASA probe may have burnt organic molecules on Mars 40 years ago: Report

Because small, carbon-rich meteorites so frequently pelt the Red Planet, scientists have suspected for decades that organics exist on Mars.

NASA’s Kepler Telescope almost out of fuel, forced to nap

Launched in 2009, Kepler has endured mechanical failures and other mishaps. But there’s no getting around an empty fuel tank. The fuel is needed for pointing the telescope.

NASA’s famous planet-hunting telescope Kepler running out of fuel, to be put on hibernation mode

The telescope which is some 94 million miles away from Earth has continuously monitored over 150,000 stars in the Cygnus-Lyra region and has discovered over 4,600 planet candidates as per the data provided by NASA.

NASA to soon start testing ‘quiet’ supersonic flights over Texas

From November, the US space agency will use supersonic F/A-18 Hornet jets over Galveston to mimic the sonic profile of the X-59 while a group of around 500 residents document the noise levels.

NASA ask citizen scientists to help track mosquitoes, reduce disease outbreaks

Part of NASA’s new DEVELOP programme has invited citizens to contribute, and create a global map of mosquito populations, which can help plan prevention in case of epidemic outbreaks, like the Zika virus.

NASA scientists to use submarines to hunt for meteorite remains in Pacific Ocean

Scientists believe that about two tonnes of fragments are up for grabs. Some of these fragments could be as large as a brick and they could be scattered over a half-mile of the sea floor.

NASA’s Hubble spots massive cluster of 10 billion-years-old stars

Scientists have found star which are almost 10 billion years old, on the edge of the Milky Way. It is believed that they mioght hold a role in explaining the formation of galaxies in the Universe.

Cassini finds complex organic molecules from Saturn’s moon

The presence of the large complex molecules, along with liquid water and hydrothermal activity, bolsters the hypothesis that the ocean of Enceladus may be a habitable environment for life.

NASA’s Webb Telescope to unravel Jupiter’s Great Red Spot mystery

Using MIRI to observe in the 5 to 7 micrometer range could be particularly revealing for the Great Red Spot, as observations in such wavelengths are not possible from Earth.
