We’ve all seen the movies. Tunnels cut through the red rock. Giant glass domes stretching from one end of a crater rim to another. Hydroponics. Lots and lots of hydroponics. But Mars is… a challenge.
A vocal minority believes that the moon landing was all an elaborate hoax filmed on a sound stage in Hollywood, but it's no hoax. Here's why...
All planets with evidence of life please take a step forward. Not so fast, Venus.
According to NASA, "A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying." But what happens when a black hole dies?
All Stars die. Some stars go out with a bang. Some stars go out with a big bang — a supernova. And some stars are capable of something so spectacular, so rare, we don't even have a name for it yet.
Every star you see in the sky, including the sun, will someday die. It’s best to get used to that idea now, before things start to get heavy.
Mars is the ultimate off-the-grid experience--far grittier, far harder, and far… redder than even the most remote locations on planet Earth. Let’s break down some of the challenges that people will have to face in order to survive and thrive on our neighbor in the solar system.
Okay, stars die in all sorts of interesting and cosmically expressive ways (except the red dwarf stars, who just sort of…stop).
Something happens once you see the world from a different perspective. It's called the "Overview Effect". But what does that mean?
Exoplanets are planets orbiting stars outside the solar system, and every month seems to bring in a new batch of weird, wild, and wonderful worlds.
Sometimes when you want to go out, you want to go out with a bang.
