In a latest announcement, The European Space Agency announced plans to launch a new space mission called PLATO with an aim to discover Earth like worlds in the neighborhood of the Sun.
Astronomers are getting closer to finding a rocky, water-rich planet like earth after proving new technology that can spot minute changes to starlight.
The study claims that viewing activity videos before carrying them out helps in boosting the brain’s structure or plasticity and enhances increases the motor skills.
After a five-week visit to the International Space Station, the Cygnus spacecraft has been released today by NASA astronaut Michael Hopkins and it will burn as it rips through the Earth’s atmosphere tomorrow.
Designed by the NASA’s Ames Research Center, the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer was launched in September with a mission to orbit the moon and gather specific information. The probe's first pictures were taken and sent back to NASA last week.
NASA revealed that the orbit of the Mars Odyssey spacecraft has been modified in order to help scientists make systematic observations of the morning fogs, clouds and surface frost that develop on the Martian surface in different seasons.
