NASA spacecraft reaches asteroid Bennu, plans to send 4 pounds of rock back to Earth

TwitterFacebook

An interplanetary visitor has arrived at asteroid Bennu.

On Monday, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft reached the relatively small asteroid after an over two-year journey through the solar system. The 1,600-foot diameter space rock, about the height of the Empire State Building, is of great interest to scientists as the lump of rubble and organic materials might provide a future fuel depot for deep space missions, and likely holds ancient clues about our solar system’s formation.

This scientist keeps winning money from people who bet against climate change

TwitterFacebook

James Annan keeps winning. 

Annan, a climate scientist and director of the Blue Skies Research Organization, has won numerous bets over the last decade against scientists from a variety of academic backgrounds. 

In short, people keep betting him that the world will cool or warm slightly, rather than continue on its accelerating warming trend. Annan hasn’t lost.

Most recently, Annan won $10,000 from two solar physicists at the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics in Russia — Galina…

Scientists think they’ve found a moon orbiting a world outside the solar system

TwitterFacebook

For the first time, astronomers think they’ve found solid evidence of a moon orbiting a planet outside of our solar system. 

And it’s a doozy. 

The exoplanet, named Kepler-1625b, is 8,000 light-years away and thought to be many times more massive than Jupiter, much larger than any world in our own solar system. The moon orbiting it is about the size of Neptune.

If confirmed, this will be the first time a moon has been found outside of the solar system, according to a new study detailing…
