Scientists have gathered some of the most compelling evidence yet for the existence of water on the moon and it may be relatively accessible. The discovery has implications for future missions to the moon and deeper space exploration.
With no significant atmosphere insulating it from the suns rays, it had been assumed that the moons surface was dry until the 1990s, when orbiting spacecraft found indications of ice in large and inaccessible craters near the moons poles.
Then in 2009, imaging spectrometers…
Scientists detect ‘superbolt’ lightning strikes that hit with more power than entire US solar, wind energy capacity – RT
Scientists have confirmed the existence of ‘superbolts’ that can be up to 1,000 times brighter than the average lightning strike, producing more power than all…
In two separatestudies of extreme lightning events, researchers were astounded by the sheer power of mother nature that is unleashed far more regularly than previously thought.
So-called ‘superbolts’ were first detected in the 1970s, though they were suspected of only reaching 100 times the standard brightness of the typical lightning strike.
Now, however, using satellite observations, researchers at the US Los Alamos National Laboratory have discovered far more than they bargained for lighting…
Scientists use radio telescope to find hidden ‘super planet’ – The Independent
Radio emissions have only been detected from a small number of brown dwarfs
Astronomers have discovered a cold brown dwarf otherwise known as a super planet for the first time using a radio telescope.
Brown dwarfs are vast, sized between 15 and 75 times the mass of Jupiter, and have gaseous atmospheres similar to some of the planets in our solar system. They are also often known as failed stars because of the way that they shine.
Planets shine by reflecting light, while stars shine by producing their own light. Despite being so big, brown dwarfs are not able to sustain…
SpaceX’s most important Falcon 9 booster yet returns to port with a lean – Teslarati

On November 19th, what is likely SpaceX’s most important Falcon 9 booster yet returned to Port Canaveral with a surprise – perhaps the most dramatic lean ever observed on one of the recovered rockets.
Tilted a solid 10+ degrees from vertical, the lean was immediately visible as soon as the top of the rocket crest the horizon, and it later became clear that one of Falcon 9 booster B1061’s four landing legs had no contact at all with drone ship Just Read The Instruction’s (JRTI) deck. Four days prior,…
