  • Delaying Death: Mercury Spacecraft Firing Engines To Stay Up Until 2015
    Don’t take these spectacular Mercury images (below the jump) for granted. Three weeks ago, NASA’s orbiting Mercury spacecraft did an engine fire to boost its altitude above the hothouse planet. Another one is scheduled for January. But all this will do is delay the end of the long-running mission — the first one to orbit […]
  • “Eye of Sauron” Galaxy Used For New Method of Galactic Surveying
    Determining the distance of galaxies from our Solar System is a tricky business. Knowing just how far other galaxies are in relation to our own is not only key to understanding the size of the universe, but its age as well. In the past, this process relied on finding stars in other galaxies whose absolute […]
  • Beam Me Up, Mars! Uwingu Will Send 90,000 Radio Messages There Today
    Maybe you can’t climb on a rocketship to Mars, at least yet, but at the least you can get your desire for exploration out through other means. Today, take comfort that humanity is sending 90,000 messages in the Red Planet’s direction. That’s right, the non-profit Uwingu plans to transmit these missives today around 3 p.m. […]
