SETI says KIC 8462852 isn’t sending Extraterrestrial Laser Pulses

SETI says KIC 8462852 isn’t sending Extraterrestrial Laser Pulses

Astronomers who were searching for signs of extraterrestrial laser pulses from alien structure KIC 8462852 have come up empty handed. As per the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI), astronomers didn’t find any extraterrestrial laser pulse emanating from the stellar body.

KIC 8462852's inconsistent dimming was baffling astronomers from a long time. Some of them think the anomalous star may have an extraterrestrial civilization. To observe the possibilities, they hunted for brief laser pulses from the stellar body, but found nothing, as per a report of SETI.

Massive Jupiter-like storm detected on a small L-dwarf star by Kepler and Spitzer

Massive Jupiter-like storm detected on a small L-dwarf star by Kepler and Spitzer

A small L-dwarf star has been found with a massive Jupiter-like storm in its environment by astronomers using Kepler and Spitzer space telescopes. The brown dwarf star codenamed as W1906+40 has been estimated to have a surface temperature of 3,500 degree Fahrenheit. Brown dwarfs have both star-like and planet-like properties. As their surface temperature is not as high as that of a star, they can have layered atmosphere.

Bright Spots on Ceres Show Signs of ‘Ice Rinks’ and not Alien Base

Bright Spots on Ceres Show Signs of ‘Ice Rinks’ and not Alien Base

Something unusual is happening on the dwarf planet Ceres, which is the largest object in the Asteroid belt. NASA's Dawn spacecraft has been inching closer to the dwarf planet's surface for months, and new studies using its data now reveal mysterious secrets about the weird bright spots in a center in its northern hemisphere of Ceres, which no one was aware of what exactly they are and how they got there. The brightness and flatness of the spots helped scientists to suggest that they may be made of water ice.

Dawn Spacecraft finds hints about Salty spots and Morning mist on Ceres

Dawn Spacecraft finds hints about Salty spots and Morning mist on Ceres

NASA’s Dawn mission team has reported evidence of salty spots and morning mist on dwarf planet Ceres in the asteroid belt. The research paper published in the journal Nature has provided hints about craters seen with haze during the morning. The bright spots on Ceres could be due to salty regions on Ceres, according to NASA team working on the project.

Superflare from Sun Capable Enough to Destroy our Blue Planet

Superflare from Sun Capable Enough to Destroy our Blue Planet

On spotting the enormous solar flare on the star, KIC9655129, scientists speculate that our sun could produce a similar solar flare sufficient enough to destroy our blue planet. With the help of NASA’s Kepler space telescope, researchers at the University of Warwick have been able to spot the solar superflare in the star about 1,500 light-years away from Earth. Scientists said that the solar flare share properties similar to the flares seen on our sun. The main reason to worry regarding these enormous solar flares is that they could severely disrupt our GPS and radio communication systems.

Moon Express becomes second Google Lunar XPRIZE team to get its launch contract verified for 2017

Moon Express becomes second Google Lunar XPRIZE team to get its launch contract verified for 2017

XPRIZE has officially verified launch contract of Moon Express as a part of the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE. Moon Express will use a Rocket Lab Electron rocket along with the company’s ‘MX-1E’ micro-leader for a 2017 mission.

Google Lunar XPRIZE is a world-level competition meant for privately-funded teams to land an unmanned spacecraft on the lunar surface by December 31, 2017. Bob Weiss, vice chairman and president of XPRIZE, said that they are proudly announcing the official confirmation of receipt and verification of Moon Express’s launch contract.

NASA's Orbital ATK CRS-4 launch is first flight of an enhanced Cygnus spacecraft to ISS

NASA's Orbital ATK CRS-4 launch is first flight of an enhanced Cygnus spacecraft to ISS

Orbital ATK faced a rocket failure last year, but now it has been able to mount a second supply mission very rapidly by coming in collaboration with the US launch provider United Launch Alliance (ULA). Atlas V rocket that lifted Cygnus into space on December 6 evening was provided by ULA.

Life could exist in two places at same time and in same system in Multihabitable systems: Study

Life could exist in two places at same time and in same system in Multihabitable systems: Study

More than 1,900 exoplanets or alien planets are present around other stars. Now, a new research has claimed that these alien planets can help each other in their existence. The researchers said that alien planets present close to each other around the same parent star can help each other when it comes to supporting life, creating ‘multihabitable systems’.

NASA has hidden several pictures of alien-build-underground-bases in Mars, say some alien investigators

Some alien investigators said that there are many pictures of Mars underground bases built by aliens, that have been hidden by the US Space agency NASA and other space agencies. One of the investigators has posted a YouTube video and has claimed to demonstrate compelling proof of huge doorways on the surface of the Red Planet.

Alien enthusiasts, claiming to be investigators, have used Google Earth for the exploration of Mars’ surface.

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Probe makes Second Attempt to Reach Venus

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Probe makes Second Attempt to Reach Venus

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) back in 2010 launched a probe to orbit Venus and explore the planet in depth but its attempt ended in a failure. Now five years after the first attempt, JAXA made a second and final attempt for its mission.

According to JAXA scientists, an increase in temperature in the main engine due to a choked fuel valve was the reason for the previous failure. The accident made the space agency miss the opportunity to send its craft in Venus orbit.
