PHILIP: Laser-Powered Rover to Explore Super-Cold Lunar Craters for WaterHuman settlements beyond Earth on Moon or on planets like Mars in space have long been the theme of science fiction. However, serious...
Astronomers usually get to hear from the far-off galaxies through high energy radiations like X-rays. It is extremely uncommon to receive relatively lower energy UV radiation from ancient galaxies like AUDs01. Such low energy photons usually get...
NASA’s ambitious mars mission Mars 2020 was successfully launched on 30 July 2020. Perseverance is the name of the rover.   The main task of Perseverance is to seek signs of ancient life and collect rock...
NASA’s infra-red observatory Spitzer has recently observed the flare from gigantic binary black hole system OJ 287, within the estimated time interval predicted by the model developed by astrophysicists. This observation has tested different aspects of General...
Though data from orbiters have suggested presence of water ice, the exploration of lunar craters in the polar regions of moon has not been possible due to the absence of suitable technology to power lunar rovers in...
X-ray and radio observation of galaxy system Abell 2384 reveals collision of two galaxy clusters that travelled through each other forming a binodal system with a bridge of superhot gas between two cluster lobes and a bend...
The Belgian satellite PROBA-V, developed by European Space Agency has completed 7 years in orbit providing daily data on the state of vegetation at the global scale. The Belgian...
T2K, a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan, has recently reported an observation where they have detected a strong evidence of a difference between fundamental physical properties of neutrinos and that of the corresponding antimatter counterpart, anti-neutrinos....
Astrobiology suggest that life is abundant in the universe and the primitive microbial life forms (beyond earth) could be found earlier than intelligent forms. The search for the extra-terrestrial life involves looking for biological signatures in the...
