Team Miles, a Tampa-based group will have a spot on NASA’s most powerful rocket inaugural voyage

By | 2017-07-26T11:49:20+00:00 July 25th, 2017|

Team Miles is now ready to launch it's miniature satellite Team Miles, a 17-member Tampa-based group, will have a spot on NASA's most powerful rocket inaugural voyage as it paves the way for exploration of Mars in the future. Team Miles engineered a miniature satellite that will be on an unmanned rocket Space Launch System which NASA aspires to launch into deep space in 2019. Team leader, Wes [...]

NASA and Honeywell claim they can reduce sonic booms over land, potentially bringing super sonic flight to the masses

By | 2017-07-10T18:53:17+00:00 July 10th, 2017|

NASA, together with American multinational conglomerate Honeywell, claim they can reduce sonic booms over land, which will potentially bring super sonic flight to the masses. Honeywell also stated that this development can eliminate one of the number one barriers to the broad adoption of super sonic flight. Since Richard Nixon's administration during early 1970s, a ban on supersonic travel over U.S. soil has been in place. What is a sonic [...]

More potentially habitable planets recently found by NASA

By | 2017-07-04T13:54:11+00:00 June 30th, 2017|

Two hundred and nineteen new planet candidates has been discovered by NASA's new Kepler space telescope team. Ten among these new planet candidates are near-earth size and in the habitable zone of their star. This Kepler Space Telescope utilizes the blinking and dimming of far alien stars to spot planets that might orbit around them. "All the data from the original Kepler mission has been analyzed, much of it several [...]

Office developers in Dubai are paving the way towards going green!

By | 2017-06-29T10:28:39+00:00 June 29th, 2017|

It is certain that the next generation offices of Dubai are going green! In fact, 81 percent of ongoing office project has LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification. This is the highest ration among global cities. Moreover, UAE is among the top 10 nations in LEED-certified buildings outside of the U.S. The LEED certification validates that a project is built and operates in specific optimum sustainable methods. However, [...]

Recent study suggests that Mars was capable of supporting life longer than what was previously thought

These pale zones called "halos" were found in the border bed rock fractures seen in this 2015 image from NASA. NASA's Curiosity rover discovered evidence that the Red Planet harboured a possibly habitable lake-and -stream system in the ancient past. This happened shortly after landing down inside Mar's 96-mile-wide (154 kilometers) Gale Crater in August 2012. Recently, Curiosity has found "halos" of silica-rich bedrock surrounding fractures nearby Gale's [...]

Regenerative health can now be better understood with the help of space-traveling flatworms

By | 2017-06-26T12:30:40+00:00 June 25th, 2017|

Planaria flatworms (D. Japonica) were used to better study and understand regenerative health. Tufts University is being helped by flatworms that they've sent aboard the International Space Station for five weeks. They are being beneficial in terms of the study on how an absence of normal gravity and geomagnetic fields can have behavioural, bacteriological, and anatomical consequences, according to a paper that was published on June, 13 of [...]
