NASA's Hubble Space Telescope identified a mirrored galaxy in space. According to NASA, gravitational lensing occurs when the mass of a big astronomical structure, such as a galaxy cluster, disrupts spacetime and bends the path of light from distant objects as it travels around it, as if through a lens. This is the first time… read-more

US President Joe Biden revealed the first photographs from James Webb Space Telescope in the presence of NASA Administrator at the White House on July 11. The preview event included photographs of SMACS 0723, where a vast cluster of galaxy clusters acts as a magnifying glass for the objects behind them. The Carina Nebula, WASP-96b, Southern Ring Nebula, and Stephan's Quintet will be among the images released on NASA's website.
NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission's payload integration has been finished in the United States and will be delivered to India following testing for integration with the satellite and launch vehicle. NISAR is a collaborative ISRO-NASA Earth-observation project that will cover the whole landmass, including polar cryosphere and Indian Ocean area. It's a dual-band (L-band and S-band) radar imaging mission that can operate in both… read-more

According to NASA, the Kavachi volcano in the Solomon Islands, one of the most active undersea volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean, is emitting more plumes. After a 2015 expedition revealed two kinds of sharks living within the active crater, the underwater volcano was called "Sharkcano." NASA disclosed satellite photographs of the erupting underwater volcano. The sharks are unaffected by the eruption since they are adapted to live in harsh… read-more
According to space scientists, a massive asteroid is coming toward Earth. The giant space rock Asteroid 388945 (2008 TZ3) will make a close approach to our planet at 2.48 a.m. on May 16, as per National Aeronautics and Space Administration. According to space scientists' projections, it will pass us at a distance of 2.5 million miles away. It dwarfs the Statue of Liberty and is larger than the Eiffel Tower.
A group of scientists at the NASA have planned to send human nudes into space, hoping to tempt aliens. This bizarre attempt comes after 150 years of unsuccessful efforts to find extraterrestrial life. The illustration of two naked human beings would be sent into space, with a binary-coded message. Scientists behind this project assert that binary is potentially universal, and hope that aliens would be able to understand it.
Nishant Batra, a top executive at Nokia, is leading a project to establish the first 4G cellular network on the Moon for NASA's ambitious Artemis moon-landing program. Talking about the Nokia lunar connectivity project, Batra said, "If you run a 4G network, on the moon, then this device will work there." However, NASA will make a human landing on the Moon by 2024 and demonstrate Nokia-established network.
