The US Air Force has successfully orbited two geosynchronous satellites to monitor all other space devices operating on the same strategic orbit, because of the “nefarious capability” other nations might try to place up there, an American general said.
Russia’s space agency has re-established communication with its Foton-M4 satellite in Earth’s low orbit, three days after losing contact. The robotic spacecraft contains geckos participating in experiments on how space conditions impact reproduction.
If there was ever a conclusive key to finding alien life, NASA’s new monster telescope concept could be it. It is said that the new device will rival the famed Hubble 2,000-to-1 in accuracy and provide answers to crucial questions.
A group of scientists say they might have found a way to detect if alien life exists on faraway planets. First, however, they’ll have to find out if extraterrestrials pollute as much as the inhabitants of Earth.
The Russian space agency Roscosmos is struggling to re-establish contact with the Foton-M satellite, launched last Saturday. The spacecraft is not responding to commands from the ground, probably indicating mission failure.
Scientists have found more than 200 pits on the Moon some of which might lead to caves that could potentially shelter astronauts protecting them from harsh temperatures, radiation and dust, according to a new NASA study.
After years of delay, Russia plans to deploy this year the first satellite of its new constellation replacing the space component of the early warning system, Russian media reported. It will also double as an emergency communication satellite.
