Project A119: America’s Secret Plan to Nuke the Moon
Project A119: America’s Secret Plan to Nuke the Moon

The moon plays an integral part in how life on Earth works. And the moon landings consistently rank as some of the most important and iconic moments in human history. Why, then, in the 1950s, did the US Air Force want to blow it all to bits? why did America want to nuke the moon? It’s an eerie place, but also majestic and awe-inspiring. These unique, alien vistas, these ultra-mysterious landscapes, have captured the imaginations of millions of people for decades. And they’ve led us all to ponder some of life’s biggest questions. How does the solar system work? Could…


Voyager Spacecraft finds new mysteries at the edge of the Solar System
Voyager Spacecraft finds new mysteries at the edge of the Solar System

Voyager 1

Voyager 1 was the first to break free, and so has provided most of our current data. For a time shortly before the Heliopause, for example, at a distance of roughly ten billion miles from Earth, scientists noted a marked increase in the strength of the solar magnetic field. So, although it may have been predicted that the magnetic field would simply thin out and weaken the further you moved from the sun, the pressure inside this particular region actually rises. And it’s because there’s essentially a massive collision happening here, all the time, between charged particles emitted by the…


What was the Russian Sleep Experiment? Is it real?
What was the Russian Sleep Experiment? Is it real?

The Russian Sleep Experiment

The Russians decided to conduct, this experiment on 5 prisoners. Those 5 prisoners are those, who were arrested in world war 2. They 5 were locked in an isolated chamber. A gas stimulant was sent into that chamber. The gas stimulent will provide them with energy, to remain awake continuously for around 30 days. They were said they will be released from jail, if they control their sleep for 30 days. They were provided with required food, books, water supply and and a toilet. They were also provided with a microphone. And the chamber was provided with a during any…


What happened before the Big Bang?
What happened before the Big Bang?

How did our universe originate?

In some of the dark situations that come up in our life everyone is questioning how this universe came to be? Everyone knows that science’s answer to the question of how the universe came to be is the Big Bang. This Big Bang theory, however, is in a way based on Einstein’s ‘General theory of relativity’. But before that we need to talk a little bit about a mistake made by Einstein in the days when there was no Big Bang Theory.

What this means is that when the field equations proposed by Einstein were applied to this universe?

Einstein observed that the universe would expand or contract. But in the old days it was believed that…


The Moon is rusting and turning Red, it’s likely Earth’s fault

If there’s one thing we can rely on, it’s that the moon will always be there. Night after night. But our lunar satellite is actually changing, and in stranger ways than we could have ever imagined.

‘The Moon Mineralogy Mapper’ is a device designed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to study the composition of the moon. It’s what’s known as a spectrometer, which is a machine that produces spectral maps; which are maps that show the exact chemical arrangement of any given planet or, in this case, satellite.

The Moon Mapper works because every element on the moon emits a…


What are the 15 Weirdest Planets in the Universe?
What are the 15 Weirdest Planets in the Universe?

The planets of our solar system and their characteristics are well-known. However, in the infinite expanses of the universe there are far stranger celestial bodies orbiting a central star which are also classified as so-called exoplanets due to their size and position.

The Mega Earth

The planet which is 560 light-years away from Earth is actually too large for a classical planet. Since its mass of about 17 Earth masses exceeds this classification. The special thing about Kepler-10c is that, it is mostly made of rock and not as as usual for its size of gas. This is all the more astonishing, since…


Top 5 Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe
Top 5 Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe

Researchers are still discovering new interesting planets and studying the movements of meteors almost every month. Some basic questions about the universe are still of greater interest to researchers. Thus the basis for current research is based on assumptions that researchers either want to confirm or refute. But what are the really big questions and mysteries surrounding the universe? What are the questions about our existence that Astro Research is currently dealing with?

The dark secret of the universe

Anti-matter sometimes called dark matter, it serves as a powerful energy source in star wars and star trek. This is by no means a work of an…


Scientist discover the nearest Black Hole to Earth, 1,000 light years away from us
Scientist discover the nearest Black Hole to Earth, 1,000 light years away from us

Black Holes are one of the biggest mysteries of the universe. A place that absorbs everything around it where even light cannot escape, where our perception of time does not mean anything there. Black holes are equally as dangerous as they are fascinating. They give rise to a multitude of theories myths and other considerations. This is why Astronomers, Physicists and Astrophysicists all over the world are interested in this research. They want to bring light into the darkness so to speak. Scientists made an enormous discovery, the closest black hole to earth. Astronomers discover a black hole only 1,000…


3 Amazing Time Travel Paradoxes That Will Blow Your Mind
3 Amazing Time Travel Paradoxes That Will Blow Your Mind

TIME, which is always a mystery to us. There are many stories around the world but some call ita misconception, while others believe that time travel is possible. What do you think?

Time travel is possible if seen through the eyes of Science. According to Einstein’s ‘Theory of Relativity’, time travel can be done through Time Dilation . But according to this theory we can only do time travel in the future and not in the past. But a theory exist that allows us to travel in the past, ‘The Wormhole Theory’.

But think about that, can we go back…


The biggest Black Hole discoveries of 2020
The biggest Black Hole discoveries of 2020

Black holes may vary in size and age but one thing is for sure they’re hungry. New black holes are being discovered all the time and there seems to be no realistic limits to the size they can grow to. The black hole is a stellar remnant the end result of a dying star that is so dense that not even light can escape its gravitational pull. Some of these are as old as the universe while others are being formed right this second. As the nearest black hole is three and a half thousand light years away. This closest…
