Do We Now Understand Why the Moon?s Near and Far Sides Look So Dramatically Different

   27 Jun 00:00:08  |  Universe Today

The Moon is easily the most well-studied object in the Solar System, (other than Earth, of course.) But it still holds some puzzles for scientists. Why, for instance, is one side of the Moon so different from the other? The Moon is tidally-locked to Earth, so prior to space-flight, we only knew the one side. …

Last Year?s Total Solar Eclipse on Earth, Seen From the Moon

   26 Jun 00:00:04  |  Universe Today

On July 2, 2019, the Moon cast its shadow on the surface of the Earth. This time, the shadow’s path travelled across the South Pacific Ocean. It also passed over some of Argentina and Chile. For surface dwellers in the path, the Moon briefly blocked the Sun, turning night into day. But for one “eye” …

How an Advanced Civilization Could Exploit a Black Hole for Nearly Limitless Energy

   26 Jun 00:00:04  |  Universe Today

A black hole as a source of energy? We know black holes as powerful singularities, regions in space time where gravity is so overwhelming that nothing?not even light itself?can escape. About 50 years ago, British physicist Roger Penrose proposed that black holes could be a source of energy. Now, researchers at the University of Glasgow …

New Hubble Photos of Planetary Nebulae

   25 Jun 00:00:13  |  Universe Today

Planetary nebulae are astronomy’s gateway drug. Their eye-catching forms make us wonder what process created them, and what else is going on up there in the night sky. They’re some of the most beautiful, ephemeral looking objects in all of nature. The Hubble Space Telescope is responsible for many of our most gorgeous images of …

Amazing View of How Dust Storms Grow on Mars

   25 Jun 00:00:13  |  Universe Today

In 2018, Mars experienced one of its global dust storms, a phenomenon seen nowhere else. As science would have it, there were no fewer than six spacecraft in orbit around Mars at the time, and two surface rovers. This was an unprecedented opportunity to watch and study the storm. Martian Global Dust Storms (GDS) occur …

There?s no evidence that dark matter interacts with any other force but gravity

   24 Jun 00:00:04  |  Universe Today

Most of the universe is made of one of two kinds of mysterious substances, called dark matter and dark energy. From all the evidence, these two cosmic components only interact with “normal” matter through the gravitational force. And a recent nuclear experiment reveals no presence of any dark contamination in the bonds between atomic nuclei …
