That Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, has quite ambitious plans in the news. One of the most interesting ideas to create a colony on Mars is to have a million people by 2050.Now, Muskrevelou a little more about the venture. In a tute about the subject, he states that life will start with glass dome that will be terraformed “to support life, like the Earth”.Life in glass domes at first. Eventually, terraformed to support life,…

The Dumont Observatory, located in Patos de Minas (MG) and operated by the amateur astronomer Gilberto de Melo Dumont, spotted new spots on the surface of the Sun – so large that hold ten Earth planets placed side by side. This solar activity is expected at the beginning of the new star cycle.The photos were taken this Friday (6th) by Gilberto himself, using a planarometric camera connected in primary focus to one of the observatory’s…

Next Monday, between 12 noon and 12 noon around the clock in Braslia, SpaceX intends to make a static shot of the SN8 and a flight at 15 kilometers of altitude. To this end, it asked for the closure of roads near its facilities in Boca Chica, Texas.If all goes well, be Starship’s first high-altitude flight. Two other prototypes, the SN5 and the SN6, made jumps at 150 meters. It is worth remembering that a…

Finally, everything went well. The sample collected from asteroid 101955 Bennu by the Osiris-Rexest probe is safe inside the spacecraft and en route to Earth. This was a tense week for those in charge of the mission, since NASA’s plan worked so well that more than the 60 grams of material originally planned were collected – with this, smaller pieces of rock were seen escaping the spacecraft.Last Wednesday (28), the mission team sent commands to…

Research published in The Astronomical Journal revealed that astronomers detected cyclopropenylidene (C3H2) in the atmosphere of Tit, Saturn’s satellite. The molecule is extremely rare and carbon-based, in addition to being so reactive that it can only exist on Earth if it is produced in the laboratory.In fact, the particle has never been detected in an atmosphere, in the Solar System or elsewhere. Until then, scientists thought that the only other place that would remain stable…

Three American astronauts and one Japanese will compose the crew of the Crew-1 mission. And she already has a new date to leave: according to NASA, she takes off on November 14 towards International Space Station. The flight leaves the launch space of Kennedy Space Center, in Florida, at 20h49 by the time of Braslia.Crew-1 is highly anticipated for its historical importance: it will be the first manned operational flight of the SpaceX Crew Dragon…

Clouds can darken photos taken from satellites. To avoid this, Intel partnered with the European Space Agency and startup Ubotica and created the first satellite with artificial intelligence to orbit the Earth.The device was called CubeSat PhiSat-1 and is the size of a desktop. The idea is that he collects a large number of images of visible parts of space. Then, the photos covered by the clouds will be filtered using artificial intelligence.For the device…

On Tuesday (20), Intel announced details of the first artificially powered satellite to orbit Earth. In partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the startup Ubotica, the project aims to monitor polar ice and soil moisture, but it should also solve an old space industry challenge: the darkening of photos taken from satellites because of from the clouds.The device was called CubeSat PhiSat-1 and is the size of a desktop computer. According to the…

SpaceX, a company owned by billionaire Elon Musk, is moving forward with plans to build a city on Mars. Now, the intention is to install a Starlink structure on the red planet so that communication with Earth is possible. The objective is to create a broadband internet network using satellites.The information was released by SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell in a revised interview Team. “As soon as we get people to Mars, they will need the…

If there really is a terrestrial community on Mars in the future, its members will need to communicate. And SpaceX is already thinking about this: the company wants to install a Starlink structure on the red planet to create a broadband internet network using satellites.According to Gwynne Shotwell, president of SpaceX, it will be necessary to install the network also in other parts of the space for full communication. She believes it is important to…

Today, between 19h and 20h, whoever is in a place with clear skies will be able to see the Moon in conjunction with Jupiter and Saturn. The three stars will be high in the sky: Saturn on the right and above the Moon, and Jupiter below, also on the right. Look north and see the two planets, which will look like two bright stars. The next chance to see this conjunction will be on December…

NASA will hold a major event on Monday (26), at 2 pm, to announce an “exciting” discovery about the Moon. The space agency did not reveal details about the novelty, but suggested that “contribute to its efforts to learn about it the Moon and support the exploration of deep space “.NASA said the discovery came from Sofia (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy). Sofia is a modified Boeing 747 that flies high in the atmosphere, allowing…
