NASA’s Perseverance rover, on its mission to explore the Martian landscape, captured a dust devil swirling on the western rim of Mars’ Jezero Crater on August 30. While some might have entertained thoughts of alien spacecraft, the reality is far more down-to-earth. These dust devils are a common occurrence in...
NASA’s UFO research team published its independent report on Thursday, September 14th. The report has ruled out any extraterrestrial involvement in the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) sightings, underlining the imperative for thorough scientific examination.
Dirk Schulze-Makuch, an astrobiologist at Technical University Berlin, has suggested that the Viking landers, which landed on the Red Planet in 1976, may have encountered microorganisms within Martian rocks.
As we embark on this new chapter of lunar exploration, with India’s Chandrayaan-3 poised to make its historical mark in just about 5 hours, the age-old question of alien life takes on an unprecedentedly passionate state.
Why on earth is it necessary that the extraterrestrial beings should have senses like the earthians? Since the Earth’s discovery, many people have believed that there are other life forms in outer space. In order to survive, any creature needs a sense of hearing, sight or smell, or touch, at...
While even Neptune in our own solar system is a blurry blue ball when viewed from Earth’s orbit, finding habitable exoplanets outside our solar system is certainly much more difficult by directly capturing them, even with space telescopes, because of the overwhelming glare of their parent stars.
Such a capability of detecting gases like CO2 around an exoplanet normally indicates that the Webb telescope has potential to find clues about alien life forms as well in the future.
The most important parameter for Earth-like life is the presence of liquid water, which directly depends on pressure and temperature. Temperature is key both because of its influence on liquid water and because it can be directly estimated from orbital and climate models of exoplanetary systems.
The search for life, which may be existing or already extinct, on planetary bodies is one of the main goals of planetary exploration missions conducted by NASA and other international space agencies.
Astronomers discover a new multi-planet system within our galactic neighborhood. The system lies just 10 parsecs, or about 33 light-years, from Earth. At the heart of the system lies a small and cool M-dwarf star, named HD 260655, and astronomers have found that it hosts at least two terrestrial, Earth-sized...
Wonderfully pleasurable! Scientists have grown plants in lunar soil for the first time. Finding plants sprout in the Moon soil is an important step towards making long-term stays on the moon possible.
Everything is possible when we take on the idea that aliens exist and that they might one day get in contact with us.
Next milestone in the exploration of the outer world, NASA has now confirmed to exist more than 5,000 exoplanets beyond our solar system.
Before we left Africa, about two hundred thousand years ago, we humans were not the intelligent species that we are today.
According to NASA, its latest Mars rover has started its business after testing a bristling array of instruments on its robotic arm. The rover is expected to probing rocks and dust for evidence of past life. Searching for signs of life on Mars, Perseverance is expected to send various informations...
