Universe, Space & Beyond

10K 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!

    Arp 240: A Bridge between Spiral Galaxies from Hubble - Why is there a bridge between these two spiral galaxies? Made of gas and stars, the bridge provides strong evidence that these two immense star systems have passed close to each other and experienced violent tides induced by mutual gravity.

    Lightning over Colorado - Have you ever watched a lightning storm in awe? Join the crowd. Oddly, nobody knows exactly how lightning is produced. What is known is that charges slowly separate in some clouds causing rapid electrical discharges (lightning), but how electrical charges get separated in clouds remains a topic of much research.

    Thanks for posting this, Nick. I think the big questions are:
    1) Who will land humans on Mars first, NASA or the private sector (like SpaceX for example)? Keep in mind Elon Musk's time table for SpaceX is about 10 years ahead of NASA's schedule. However, timetables are not guarantees.
    2) And for the question many US citizens will be asking: Will President Trump be volunteering on the NASA mission to Mars? (lol)
