Believe it or not, pretty much all of the asteroids that we’ve seen in the night sky are local. It wasn’t until just last month that we spotted our very first interstellar asteroid.
Scientists working on information from the Kepler Space Telescope led by SETI’s Susan Thompson have now identified 20 worlds where it is possible for life as we know it to exist.
NASA has been busy lately. Just yesterday, we reported on their plan to punch a hole in the Yellowstone Caldera. Today they are talking about generating oxygen on Mars!
NASA has determined that the potential threat of a supervolcano erupting is way higher than the chance of an asteroid slamming into the planet.
When we make it to Mars, we’re going to need to be able to provide their own food. Thankfully, NASA has just unveiled inflatable greenhouses that will make life a little easier than Mark Watney had it.
Seven Earth-sized planets have been observed by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope around a tiny, nearby, ultra-cool dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. Three of these planets are firmly in the habitable zone.
