Possible Super-Earth in the Habitable Zone at Alpha Centauri

   12 Feb 00:00:02  |  Universe Today

Astronomers using a new technique may have not only found a super-Earth at a neighbouring star, but they may also have directly imaged it. And it could be nice and cozy in the habitable zone around Alpha Centauri. It’s much easier to see giant planets than Earth-size planets. No matter which detection method is being …

Plasma Thruster Could Dramatically Cut Down Flight Times to the Outer Solar System

   10 Feb 00:00:15  |  Universe Today

I just finished the most recent season of The Expanse – my current favourite Sci-Fi series.
