A seismometer installed on Mars by NASA's InSight lander has detected the two largest marsquakes to date. The seismic occurrences had magnitudes of 4.2 and 4.1, according to a new analysis. Both of these quakes were five times stronger than the previous greatest recorded seismic event.
After analyzing the seismic data from these two events, researchers aim to understand more about Mars' inner layers. Mars has piqued scientists' curiosity as they prepare to colonize the planet. And these occurrences may provide insight into whether or not long-term human existence is conceivable. Marsquakes are measured using a spectral magnitude scale, whereas earthquakes use the Richter Magnitude Scale.

The InSight Mars lander, operated by NASA, just shared an incredible sight. On April 10, it captured a magnificent image of a sunrise on Mars. InSight is NASA's first mission to investigate Mars' interior — its crust, mantle, and core — in depth. It has been present on Mars since late 2018.

Scientists Reprogram Aging Skill Cells t...

Babraham Institute scientists have found a new way for regenerating skin cells. According to molecular measurements, this procedure has allowed scientists to rewind the cellular biological clock by roughly 30 years, which is substantially longer than prior reprogramming methods.

Scientists have been able to partially repair the function of aged cells while also rejuvenating molecular measurements of biological age.

Our cells' ability to function reduces as we age, and the genome collects signs of ageing. Regenerative biology seeks to repair or replace cells, including those that have died. Our ability to generate 'induced' stem cells is one of the most essential tools in regenerative biology.

Jupiter-Like Exoplanet Kepler Telescope ...

Scientists have discovered an exoplanet circling a star 17,000 light-years away, which is an intriguing discovery. The discovery was made in 2016 by the now-retired Kepler Space Telescope. It is the most distant planet yet to be discovered. The exoplanet, known as K2-2016-BLG-0005Lb, was discovered using the microlensing technique. The approach identifies exoplanets by observing how their gravitational fields affect the brightness of the stars around which they orbit. In terms of mass, the exoplanet is nearly identical to Jupiter and orbits its star at nearly the same distance as Jupiter orbits the Sun in our solar system.

NASA Postpones Final SLS Rocket Test for...

The latest test of NASA's massive Moon rocket SLS has been postponed to allow for the launch of a SpaceX rocket later this week, the US space agency stated Tuesday.
The enormous Space Launch System's dress rehearsal was slated for Friday at Cape Canaveral, Florida, at the same time as SpaceX's launch from pad 39A.
The rocket test, which will return humans to the Moon, will now resume immediately after the SpaceX voyage, which will transport three businessmen and a former astronaut to the International Space Station.

The head of Russia's space program said Saturday that the International Space Station's survival is in jeopardy after the United States, the European Union, and Canadian space agencies failed to accept Russian demands for sanctions relief on Russian firms and hardware.
Rogozin suggested on Russian state television that Western sanctions, some of which predate Russia's current military activities in Ukraine, could hinder the operation of Russian spacecraft providing cargo missions to the International Space Station. Russia also deploys manned space missions to the station.

Unexpectedly fast new vortical Sun waves...

Researchers from New York University, Abu Dhabi, and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research identified a new set of vorticity (spinning) waves emanating from the Sun that moves far faster than existing models anticipate. The high-frequency retrograde (HFR) waves discovered after analyzing 25 years of space and ground-based data move in the opposite direction of the Sun's rotation and appear on the Sun's surface as a pattern of vortices (fluid-like revolving motions) that move three times faster than current theory predicts.

The findings of the researchers were reported in the journal Nature Astronomy. Because of their unknown nature, these HFR waves are challenging to understand and position within the current context of solar dynamics, as well as to explain.

Nasa's first spacecraft designed to probe the deep innards of another planet rocketed toward a touchdown on a huge, barren plain on Mars slated for Monday, carrying instruments to detect planetary heat and seismic rumblings never observed anywhere other than Earth.

After traveling 301 million miles (548 million km) in six months through deep space, the robotic lander InSight was set to arrive on the dusty, rock-strewn surface of Mars at around 8 p.m. GMT.

If everything goes as planned, InSight will speed through the thin Martian atmosphere at 12,000 miles per hour (19,310 kilometres per hour). The inSight will fall 77 miles through pink Martian skies to the surface in 6 1/2 minutes, traveling at a meagre 5 mph (8 kph) by the time it arrives, slowed by friction, the deployment of a massive parachute, and retro rockets.

More than 70 original NASA images, including a famous shot of Buzz Aldrin's moon walk captured by Neil Armstrong, were auctioned off in Copenhagen on Wednesday for more than EUR 155,000. (Roughly Rs. 1.3 crore).

The Aldrin photograph, which sold for EUR 5,373 (about Rs. 4, 52,000), depicts the astronaut on the moon's surface in July 1969, during the first manned lunar landing. LIFE magazine famously featured it on the cover.

Chandrayaan-2 satellite detects solar pr...

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has announced that a payload onboard the Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter, the Large Area Soft X-ray Spectrometer (CLASS), has discovered solar proton events that dramatically increase the radiation exposure to humans in space.

The equipment also observed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) on January 18, a tremendous torrent of ionised material and magnetic fields that reach Earth a few days later, causing geomagnetic storms and lighting up the polar sky with auroras, according to the ISRO on Wednesday.

"Such multi-point observations aid in our understanding of propagation and its impact on many planetary systems," the paper added.

When the sun is active, it produces stunning eruptions known as solar flares, which occasionally shoot highly energetic particles (known as solar proton events or SPEs) into interplanetary space.

On February 21, Elon Musk's SpaceX reached another another milestone. After putting its payload into orbit, it successfully landed a Falcon 9 rocket for the 100th time. At 8:14 p.m. IST, the rocket lifted off from Florida, carrying 46 Starlink satellites. The rocket's first stage (booster) returned to Earth around nine minutes later for a vertical landing on a SpaceX drone ship, A Shortfall of Gravitas (ASOG), stationed a few hundred kilometers off the Florida coast. The successful return marked the 100th time SpaceX was able to recover the first stage of a Falcon 9 for future reuse.

Rain Neuromorphics, a startup that designs chips that mimic how the brain works and aims to serve businesses with artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, announced a $25 million funding round on Wednesday (roughly Rs. 187 crores).

While most AI chips on the market today are digital, Rain's technology is analog, according to Gordon Wilson, CEO, and co-founder. Analog chips can decipher incremental information such as sound waves, whereas digital chips read 1s and 0s.

Joshua Martinangeli, 7, is unable to attend school due to illness. However, the German student may still communicate with his teacher and classmates via an avatar robot that sits in his place in class and blinks when he has something to say.

"During the lecture, the students converse with him, laugh with him, and even chitchat with him. Joshi is also capable of doing so "In an interview with Reuters, Ute Winterberg, headmistress of the Pusteblume-Grundschule in Berlin, said.

On Thursday, a Virgin Orbit rocket launched from a plane flying off the coast of California delivered seven small satellites into space, kicking off a year in which the business expects to increase the number of launches, including two from the United Kingdom.

The modified Boeing 747 of Virgin Orbit took off from Mojave Air & Space Port in Southern California, flew out over the Pacific Ocean, and dropped the LauncherOne rocket from its left wing.

At an altitude of nearly 35,000 feet (10,668 meters), the 70-foot (21.3-meter) booster ignited and hurtled skyward. All of the satellites were properly placed into the right orbit, according to the corporation.
