Spaghettification sounds like a particularly unpleasant thing to happen to pretty much anything that isn’t a lump of pasta dough. Now imagine it happening to a star.
Thats precisely what astronomers around the world observed over a six-month period when a black hole stretched and ripped apart a star that was sucked into its intense gravitational grasp at a distance of 215 million light years from Earth, as detailed in an Oct. 12 study
published through the Royal Astronomical Society. It was t…
Humans Went to The Moon 50 Years Ago, But To No Planet Yet – Here’s Why – Webby Feed
Since we were all children, we’ve seen sci-fi movies where astronauts were flying boundlessly across space. What could possibly hinder such a scenario in real life…
Since we were all children, we’ve seen sci-fi movies where astronauts were flying boundlessly across space. What could possibly hinder such a scenario in real life when humans already went to the Moon over half a century ago? Didn’t technology and science evolve tremendously since that huge event? Of course they did, but we still need something else.
In the era of Artificial Intelligence and supercomputers, it’s at least peculiar not to be able to go to another planet. Despite the fact that distances…
Asteroid samples escaping from jammed NASA spacecraft – Sydney Morning Herald
The sample container on the end of the robot arm penetrated so deeply into the asteroid and with such force that rocks became wedged around the rim of the lid.
We’re almost a victim of our own success here, Lauretta said at a hastily arranged news conference.
Lauretta said there is nothing flight controllers can do to clear the obstructions and prevent more bits of Bennu from escaping, other than to get the samples into their return capsule as soon as possible.

So, the flight team was scrambling to put the sample container into the capsule as early as Tuesday much sooner than originally planned…
New Receiver Will Boost Interplanetary Communication – Universe Today
As we explore the solar system, we’ll need an interplanetary communication network that can keep up. A new receiver might be up for the job.
If humans want to travel about the solar system, they’ll need to be able to communicate. As we look forward to crewed missions to the Moon and Mars, communication technology will pose a challenge we haven’t faced since the 1970s.
We communicate with robotic missions through radio signals. It requires a network of large radio antennas to do this. Spacecraft have relatively weak receivers, so you need to beam a strong radio signal to them. They also transmit relatively weak signals back. You need…
