Psyche is a metal asteroid thought to be the naked core of a planetoid. The metal it contains is worth quadrillions of dollars. Would it be possible to drag it into an orbit around Mars and mine it. That would be a good reason to build a space station in Mars' orbit or even a base on Mars. Could...
Introduction So as i was growing up i had a severe migraine, and the doctors told my parents;" Well, maybe he should were glasses " despite me having a 20/20 vision.

This hauntingly beautiful image shows the Earth and Moon going about their business on Nov. 20, 2016 , the image was taken from Mars orbit using the MRO HiRISE camera.

Ok to start off. The sensationalized headline wasn't my idea. So spoiler alert: the correlation is "shockingly" good; though it does have some caveats. But all-in-all this is good news so let's get to sharing. Safety remains the primary reason...
Most of you here already know about (MRO) which orbits Mars and takes very high-resolution images of its surface. But this orbiter also measures the elevation of the terrain, also at high resolution, giving us the 3D model of the terrain. Some space enthusiasts have taken the MRO imagery, overlayed it on the terrain model, and the result is some great...
A few weeks ago, while searching for a press release about "Life on Mars", I came across an about the way this subject is being treated by NASA and the scientific community since the early days of Mars exploration. It instantly reminded me of the pitiful fact that after more than 40 years with two successful Viking Mars landers, a fleet of rovers (Sojourner,...

Let's get real people, this debate over "Global Warming" is ridiculous. When the Earth is traveling 100,000 miles an hour, rotating on its axis, revolving around a Sun, hurtling through the galaxy, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for billions of years, the climate is naturally going to be affected over the course of time. ...

So the gist of this article is that a leading and very well respected Doctor from the Cleveland Clinic, a prestigious medical institution, came out of the medical establishment closet 3 days ago against environmental toxins in general, and potentially toxic ingredients in many of the vaccines...
“If we knew where it was, we can point a telescope at it and we’d see it,” Sheppard says. “The problem is we don’t know where it is.” That’s because astronomers estimate Planet Nine has an enormous orbit – around 15,000 years to make one revolution around the sun. Extraordinarily distant galaxies, meanwhile,...
After reading a few comments in another thread about the SR 71. I decided to do a little looking around to see just how slow an SR 71 could fly.
