NASA postpones Artemis 1 launch due to Tropical Storm Ian

NASA will no longer launch the Artemis 1 mission on September 27. The rocket has been stationed at the Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39B since last month and has experienced delays since arriving at the site. Now, NASA officials are forced to return the entire rocket to the Vehicle Assembly Building due to Tropical Storm Ian, which is expected to make landfall later this week as a hurricane. Since officials don’t want to launch the rocket onto the launch pad when the storm makes landfall, Team Artemis 1 will…

NASA crashes a satellite into an asteroid in the first-ever ‘planetary defense’ exercise

For the first time ever, NASA has completed what it calls a “Planetary Defense” exercise. On Monday, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) successfully smashed into the asteroid Demorphos in an attempt to change its course in space. A relatively small asteroid (only 530 feet in diameter) is what astronomers call a moon. Demorphos orbits a much larger asteroid, Didymus, about seven million miles from Earth. The best part of it all? NASA made sure to take pictures to affect the camera. See for yourself below. Don’t want to miss…

Jupiter to make its closest approach to Earth since 1963, NASA says!

According to NASA, Jupiter will make its closest approach to Earth in 59 years. The largest planet in our solar system, the gas giant, said Trina L Rey, deputy science director for the Europa Clipper mission at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., which means Earth is directly between it and the sun. A spokesman for the US space agency NASA said that the space agency originally said that Jupiter will approach its closest point to Earth in 70 years, but corrected its statement after the error was discovered.…

NASA satellite crashes into an asteroid on Monday

As it turns out, disaster Maybe he was right. NASA officials are taking a page from the Michael Bay movie that on Monday, they will smash a satellite with an incoming asteroid in the world’s first “planetary defense” test. As part of the space agency’s DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) program, a vending machine-sized vehicle is set to collide with an asteroid that scientists have dubbed Demorphos. Located about seven million miles from Earth, officials hope the rover impact will be able to use enough kinetic energy to disturb the…

NASA shares scary space image to celebrate tough season

Now that the seasons have changed, the scary season has officially arrived. It’s again that time of year that anyone and everyone from Spirit Halloween to NASA aims to get as scared as possible. In the case of the latter, the space agency shared a creepy photo on Saturday, showing cosmic horror in the form of a nebula. In an Instagram post, NASA shared a snapshot of the Helix Nebula, a cosmic cloud floating in the constellation Aquarius. With the dying star at its center, the cloud gives the appearance…

What will be visible when NASA’s DART spacecraft crashes into an asteroid!

Cape Canaveral, Florida – NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test aims to make history Monday at 7:14 p.m. ET when it smashes into Dimorphos, a small asteroid orbiting the larger asteroid Didymos. If the impact is successful, it will slightly alter the motion of the asteroid. It’s a test of deflection technology that could one day be used to protect Earth if a space rock is identified on an impact path with our planet. Currently, there are no asteroids (including Didymus and Demorphos) that are expected to hit our world. Here’s…

NASA delays moon rocket launch due to potential hurricane!

NASA is abandoning the attempt to launch its new lunar rocket next week due to a tropical storm expected to become a major hurricane. It’s the third delay last month for the lunar test flight featuring models but no astronauts, and it’s a follow-up to NASA’s Apollo moon landing program half a century ago. Hydrogen fuel leaks and other technical issues caused previous scrubs. Tropical Storm Ian, currently circulating in the Caribbean, is expected to turn into a hurricane by Monday and hit the Florida Gulf Coast by Thursday. However,…

NASA releases stunning image of Neptune

Initially came a set of images from the farthest corners of space. Then a stellar shot of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. Now, officials from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have released a set of new images captured by the Webb Space Telescope. This time, the observatory took a look at Neptune, capturing the ice giant in its full glory, its rings and everything. “It’s been three decades since we last saw these faint, dusty rings, and this is the first time we’ve seen them…
