Iridium nears completion of NEXT satellite network

The launch may also comprise a trial to seize the rocket's fairing with an enormous tensile across a boat called Mr. Steven . The latest SpaceX Falcon 9 Iridium launch is scheduled for 4:39 a.m. "They are the worst that we've ever had for trying to get a first stage on the drone ship", said Insprucker during the live webcast . Weather conditions in the area of the ship was too harsh: the wind was so strong that it blew the parachute with a canopy, and he again fell into the water. Consulte Mais Informação

Nigeria to experience longest total lunar eclipse Friday - Scientist

The moon will be fully eclipsed for one hour, 42 minutes and 57 seconds. The combination of a supermoon and total lunar eclipse creating a blood moon last occurred in 1982 and will not happen again until 2033. The eclipse will be the longest of the 21st Century so far. The celestial events have been confirmed by the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) Abuja and the United States National Aeronautic Space Agency (NASA). Consulte Mais Informação

Life on Mars? Scientists discover underground 'lake' at south pole

Life on Mars? Scientists discover underground 'lake' at south pole

The presence of liquid water at the base of the polar ice caps has always been suspected; after all, from studies on Earth, it is well known that the melting point of water decreases under the pressure of an overlying glacier . The nature of reflections off the subterranean features offer scientists information about exactly what lies beneath the surface and the data says there is liquid water . Consulte Mais Informação

Radioactive Traces from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Found in California Wine

Radioactive Traces from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Found in California Wine

However, there is no need to worry as the radiation levels in the wines are still far below the danger threshold. Ever since a huge quake off the coast of Japan sent a tsunami crashing into a nuclear plant in Fukushima, setting off one of the world's worst nuclear crises, scientists have been uncovering the radioactive legacy of the 2011 disaster.

Thus, the moon is secured by a rosy orange shading. This eclipse will be the longest in this century and is expected to last for more than 100 minutes. Europe and Africa will witness the eclipse during the evening hours. The partial eclipse, taking place before and after the total eclipse, is set to kick on for 3 hours and 55 minutes, with the entire event lasting a whopping 5 hours and 38 minutes.

Your waste may not be recycled after all, says report

Your waste may not be recycled after all, says report

The NAO said 11m tons of packaging was used by United Kingdom households and businesses and noted that 64% of packaging waste was reported as recycled, in 2017. The report, titled The Packaging Recycling Obligations , shows that the Government has no evidence that the system of obligations - introduced in 1997 to incentivise recycling - has encouraged companies to minimize packaging or make it easy to recycle.

Trump proposal would end California's tougher auto emission standards

Trump proposal would end California's tougher auto emission standards

Bush administration, said he has heard the White House will seek public comment on a range of proposals, floating the idea of revoking California's authority but not formally proposing it. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has since requested and received approval for over 50 waivers to adopt stricter emission standards. The state's 2009 waiver under the Clean Air Act has allowed California to set emissions rules for cars and trucks that are more stringent than the federal ... Consulte Mais Informação

Underground lake found on Mars, raising possibility of life

Previous research found possible signs of intermittent liquid water flowing on the martian surface, but this is the first sign of a persistent body of water on the planet in the present day. Together with the pressure of the overlying ice, this would lower the melting point, allowing the lake to remain liquid as happens on Earth. There is no reason to conclude that the presence of subsurface water on Mars is limited to a single location. Consulte Mais Informação

How to view the longest lunar eclipse this century

How to view the longest lunar eclipse this century

The moon loses the brightness normally caused by the reflection of the sun's light and takes on an eerie, reddish glow, giving the lunar eclipse moon the nickname of blood moon . This happens because blue light undergoes stronger atmospheric scattering, so red light will be the most dominant color highlighted as sunlight passes through our atmosphere and casts it on the moon.
