The moon’s wet: now what?

In October 2020, NASA’s SOFIA aircraft, with the assistance of an infrared camera, discovered water on the light side of the moon. While there has been evidence of ice in the moon’s craters, this discovery of water on parts of the surface that aren’t shadowed and below freezing marks an interesting turn for the future…

Is there life on Mars?

With the recent launch of Perseverance, NASA’s most complex and sophisticated rover yet, scientists are looking forward to discovering evidence holding the secret to learning about life on Mars. It is already known that the Red Planet was, at some point in time, habitable, but this mission hopes to gather samples that could finally reveal…

The hunt for dark energy

It is currently widely accepted that both space and time started with the Big Bang. The universe started as a small singularity that was infinitely dense and has continuously expanded since. This can be evidenced by an observed pattern called redshift (a result of the wavelength of electro-magnetic radiation increasing). However, gravity in simple terms…

Real life Waters of Mars?

It may sound like an episode of Doctor Who, but scientists believe that they may have found an underground lake on Mars.   Blurry radar scans of the planet reveal what is believed to be a frozen, salty reservoir some 12- miles across and lying around one mile beneath the surface of the planet’s South…

Massive stars observed in neigbouring galaxy

Massive stars have been observed in a neighbouring galaxy, where they were once thought to be rare. The galaxy 30 Doradus, or Tarantula nebula, contains nearly 1000 massive stars which were viewed through ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Massive stars are of particular scientific interest due to the ‘feedback’, or influence, they have on their surroundings….

NASA confirm ozone hole has shrunk

In the 1970s scientists noted significant stratospheric ozone loss above Antarctica, but dismissed the concern with the conclusion that it was just an uncertainty. It was only in the mid-1980s that scientists took the ever-growing ozone hole as a serious problem for climate change. The ozone layer is extremely important for the Earthís climate processes…
