Universe, Space & Beyond

6K buzzes
Ready for a cosmic experience? The purpose of this hive is to share and discuss science news about the Universe, space and beyond. What's "beyond"? Good question. "Beyond" is what theoretically might be found inside and outside the quantifiable Universe mapped out by scientists and world space agencies, like NASA and ESA. Some space science theories include Parallel Universes, Time Travel, Worm Holes, String Theory, the Multiverse, Dark Matter and Dark Energy,Teleporting, ETs/UFOs, etc. And let's not forget about all the mathematics and physics that go along with it. Thank you for joining this hive and encouraging other space enthusiasts, scientists, amateur astronomers and other bees to do the same. Let's share our collective knowledge, theories and views about all things space-related. Time for liftoff, better buckle up! -- David B. Grinberg, founder/manager.

The future is NEAR!

    George, these new findings about Mars -- which seem to be announced weekly -- are indeed astonishing and will help those astronauts who bravely aspire to ultimately land on and colonize the Red Planet -- hopefully, within the next decade or so.
  4. George Touryliov
    Once upon a time, the Red Planet had lakes, or at least wetter conditions than it does today. The latest from our Curiosity Mars rover shows slabs of rock cross-hatched with shallow ridges that likely originated as cracks in drying mud, evidence of an ancient era when these sediments were deposited were.

    Thanks for posting the Mars buzz, George. Yes, by all practical accounts from NASA and space scientists, Mars did indeed have rivers, lakes and perhaps oceans a long, long time ago. In fact, it's still possible that microbial life exists frozen in some of the large amounts of ice on Mars. The more they look, the more they find. Pretty amazing -- and great photos!

    May he rest in peace. But why have no astronauts landed on the moon since the Apollo missions? Why hasn't the USA, or any country, established a lunar base by now? I'm perplexed over why we haven't returned to the moon in decades; any theories?

    Thanks for the awesome video and all of your highly valued contributions to this hive, George. All one must do is look to the Mars Curiosity rover an a shining example of the amazing findings NASA-controlled robots are making in on the Red Planet. The Curiosity rover recently received a 2-year extension by NASA to continue studying the Martian terrain -- amazingly, NASA scientists never thought this rover would even last this long on an alien planet. But it "keeps going and going" like the Energizer Bunny (battery commercial).
