Scientists Just Discovered That Tardigrade Proteins Slow Aging in Human Cells

Scientists at the University of Wyoming just discovered how tardigrade proteins slow aging in human cells and also survive in extreme conditions both on Earth and outer space. The researchers discovered that the microscopic creatures can slow down molecular processes. Recent findings have proven that tardigrade proteins may be great in technologies that will help […]

Compact, Shape-shifting Robot Built by Transformers Inventors Just Landed on the Moon

A shape-shifting robot built by the inventors of Transformer has finally landed on the moon aboard a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) lunar expedition. The Lunar Excursion Vehicle-2 (LEV-2), dubbed SORA-Q is an ultra-compact, deformable lunar robot. JAXA built the robot in partnership between Japanese toy manufacturer Takara Tomy, JAXA, Sony Group, and Doshisha University.

These Three Planets Used to Have Life in Our Solar System

Billions of years ago, when our solar system was just in its infant stage, three planets used to provide a habitable environment to sustain life. These three planets include Earth, Venus, and Mars. However, today, only Earth is known to have lifeforms. But why did Venus and Mars lose their thriving life-supporting environments? Both planets

First Private Mission to Venus in 2025 will Focus on Searching for Alien Life in Clouds of Sulfuric Acid

Since we commenced with space exploration, scientists have been looking forward to finding life outside Earth. Several observations have proven that Venus’ clouds may be habitable to some form of microbial lifeforms. Since private agencies are now dominating the space, we should be expecting a visit to the Hellish planet anytime soon. An American Aerospace

NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover Films From Dawn to Dusk on the Red Planet During downtime (video)

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover experienced some downtime in November 2023. During that period, the rover did not just rest on its laurels. Instead, it filmed an intriguing video of Mars from dawn to dusk. The rover recorded the footage in two black-and-white videos on Nov. 8 while celebrating its 4,002nd Martian day (sol).  The rover experienced

Perseverance Mars Rover Celebrates 1,000 Mars days on the Red Planet

NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover just completed its 1,000 Mars days on the red planet. Unlike Earth, Mars Days are slightly longer. One Sol is about 24 hours and 37 minutes. This implies that the Perseverance rover has been exploring the hostile environment of Mars for 1000 Mays days or sols. Perseverance team and scientists across

Signs of life shooting from Saturn’s moon Enceladus would be detectable by spacecraft, scientists Reveal

Finding signs of life in the Universe has remained the primary objective of most astrobiologists. In the last decade when NASA’s Cassini spacecraft was still in operation in the Saturnian system, it turned its instruments towards Saturn’s moon Enceladus. While making this turn, the space probe studied plumes of ice ejecting upward from the surface
