Earth To Mars In 100 Days? The Power Of Nuclear Rockets

   01 Jul 01:00:01  |  Universe Today

The Solar System is a really big place, and it takes forever to travel from world to world with traditional chemical rockets. But one technique, developed back in the 1960s might provide a way to dramatically shorten our travel times: nuclear rockets. Of course, launching a rocket powered by radioactive material has its own risks …

Astronomers See Evidence of Supermassive Black Holes Forming Directly in the Early Universe

   30 Jun 01:00:01  |  Universe Today

Super-Massive Black Holes (SMBH) are hard to explain. These gargantuan singularities are thought to be at the center of every large galaxy (our Milky Way has one) but their presence there sometimes defies easy explanation. As far as we know, black holes form when giant stars collapse. But that explanation doesn’t fit all the evidence. …
