It’s been a while since the United States has had a total solar eclipse. I want to think their was one when I was in elementary school but I can’t be sure if that was a total eclipse or not. I just remember us going outside and it getting darker. This one was the first I could understand and enjoy though. It wasn’t total here, we only had a partial eclipse.
Last night, a meteor came down in Canada and lit up the night sky as it burned up.
This news is something I really wish there was more of. The Phoenix Mars lander has successfully landed and already sent back some pictures. It’s really great that they had another lander on Mars in a different area. I am looking forward to the new discoveries it brings to us. I think it’s really important to explore the universe and work on finding other places where we could survive. I think it’s important to the long turn survival of humans because there is too many things that could happen here on Earth to make us extinct.
Cassini Tastes Organic Material at Saturn’s Geyser Moon I saw some pretty exciting news from NASA. Cassini, the space craft out near Saturn detected higher temperatures than expected on Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Cassini flew through a geyser like eruption and sensed water vapor and organic materials. I thought this was pretty amazing news. I only wish we had more space probes out there exploring
Space never ceases to amaze me. A gamma ray burst was detected from a start explosion. It became the farthest away object visible with the naked eye.
I saw a fascinating article on Slashdot. It says that the hydrocarbons on Titan surpass the earth’s oil reserves/
I read an interesting article last night. Scientist said that under the right conditions, interstellar plasma can become organized into structures that interact with each other.
Scientists have discovered water on an extrasolar planet for the first time. I admit, I hope this is a sign of life outside our bubble.
