Falcon 9 launches first Starlink mission – heaviest payload launch by SpaceX to date

Falcon 9 launches first Starlink mission – heaviest payload launch by SpaceX to date

The much-awaited and heralded launch of SpaceX’s Starlink internet satellite constellation launched on Thursday.  With the twice-flown Falcon 9 rocket on SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, SpaceX deployed the first batch of 60 Starlink satellites. The launch was slightly delayed due to unacceptable Upper Level Winds scrubbed the first launch attempt. Then, a week ago, a requirement ... Read More »

Falcon Heavy most powerful space rocket on the world !

Falcon Heavy most powerful space rocket on the world !

FALCON HEAVY Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)—a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel–Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta ...

A Little Perspective on the New “9th Planet” (and the 10th, and the 11th)

A Little Perspective on the New “9th Planet” (and the 10th, and the 11th)

By now you’ve probably heard the announcement that astronomers Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown think they’ve tracked down “Planet 9,” a long-rumored large world orbiting in the distant wilderness of the solar system. Even if you haven’t heard, the news may sound familiar, since a confusingly similar but completely separate report made the rounds just a month ago. (Students of ... Read More »

Scientists at Large Hadron Collider hope to make contact with PARALLEL UNIVERSE in days

SCIENTISTS conducting a mindbending experiment at the Large Hadron Collider next week hope to connect with a PARALLEL UNIVERSE outside of our own. he staggeringly complex LHC ‘atom smasher’ at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect – or even create – miniature black holes. If ... Read More »

Will Einstein’s General Relativity Break Under Extreme Conditions?

Will Einstein’s General Relativity Break Under Extreme Conditions?

A century ago this year, a young Swiss physicist, who had already revolutionized physics with discoveries about the relationship between space and time, developed a radical new understanding of gravity. In 1915, Albert Einstein published his general theory of relativity, which described gravity as a fundamental property of space-time. He came up with a set of equations that relate the ... Read More »
