Washignton: NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) has confirmed, for the first time, water on the sunlit surface of the Moon.
Washinton: A Northrop Grumman Cygnus resupply spacecraft, which has been named after late India-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla, is on its way to the International Space Station with nearly 8,000 pounds of scientific investigations, technology demonstrations, commercial products, and other cargo after launching at 9:16 p.m. EDT Friday from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia.
New York: An international effort that brought together more than 60 ice, ocean and atmosphere scientists from three dozen international institutions has generated new estimates of how much of an impact Earth’s melting ice sheets could have on global sea levels by 2100. If greenhouse gas emissions continue apace,
Hyderabad, Jul 18 (UNI) Travelling at a staggering speed of 13.5 kilometres per second or 48,000 kilometres per hour, an asteroid will come within just 0.034 astronomical units (Astronomical unit is the distance between the Earth and Sun) of the earth on July 24, B M Birla Science Centre Director Dr B G Sidharth said.
