Kepler just discovered a solar system with 3 earth sized, habitable planets

Astronomers Have Found A Solar System With Three Earth-Like Worlds

by CHIRPon May 3, 2016
European astronomers have just detected something incredible! After observing the ultracool red dwarf star TRAPPIST-1, they detected three Earth-sized planets transiting it, all of which orbit the star closely enough to be habitable. Using the Belgian TRAPPIST telescope, they detected the signatures of three very small worlds by detecting their transit of the red dwarf star. The star is […]
A Black Hole Has Been Recreated In A Lab

Physicists Have Simulated A Black Hole In A Lab — Could Win Hawking A Nobel Prize

by CHIRPon April 27, 2016
Stephen Hawking’s theory that black holes don’t destroy everything they come in contact with, but rather evaporate and shrink while slowly emitting radiation was revolutionary. But due to the impractical nature of studying such a subject, his theory has been impossible to prove up to this point. The only way to truly discover the truth behind it would be to go inside […]

12 Black Holes Are All Shooting Energy In The Same Direction

A Dozen Black Holes Are All Mysteriously Shooting Energy In The Same Direction

by CHIRPon April 27, 2016
Recently observed by Nasa, approximately a dozen supermassive black holes are simultaneously shooting bursts of energy in the same direction. While it may be a coincidence, astronomers are suggesting that larger forces at play. Found at the center of nearly all galaxies, black holes periodically erupt and release streams of plasma into space. When a black hole swallows a star, […]
NASA Observes Object Coming Out Of Blackhole

NASA Just Observed Something Coming Out of A Black Hole

by CHIRPon April 22, 2016
As far as we know, a black hole is an area in space that exhibits such strong gravity that nothing can escape from inside it. Not even light or electromagnetic particles can get away from it’s pull. Knowing this, it’s safe to assume that we’ve never observed anything coming out of one. That was true, until NASA saw something curious at […]

Nasa Uploads The Most Beautiful Footage Ever Captured of Earth

Watch The Most Beautiful Video Footage Ever Captured of Earth

by CHIRPon April 19, 2016
NASA astronauts have beamed down the most high quality and beautiful footage ever caught of Earth. Shot from the International Space Station (ISS) in 4K footage using a ‘RED Epic Dragon’ camera, the footage is absolutely breathtaking.   You can watch more footage from NASA’s RED camera here. The majority of them are experiments done inside the space station, according to […]

Watching The Delta IV Rocket Launch In 360 Degree 4k Video Is Pretty Much Like Being There

by CHIRPon April 12, 2016
Not many people in the world get to see a rocket launch from close up. Now, thanks to 360 degree video technology, you can experience rocket launches like like never before. Made in partnership with Koncept VR, this new video puts you closer than any human being could possibly get without incineration. This rocket launch mission, named NROL-45, was […]

Do We Want Aliens To Find Us? A Laser Cloaking Device Could Hide Us From Them

by CHIRPon April 1, 2016
At first thought, broadcasting ourselves to the universe in hopes of making contact with another intelligent species sounds amazing right? We all have a deep desire to discover other intelligent life like us. It just seems natural to reach out in hopes of contact. But is that really the wisest thing to do? Many astronomers and […]

Astronomers Have Just Captured Footage of A Celestial Object Exploding On The Side of Jupiter This month on March 17, an Austrian astronomer named Gerrit Kernbauer was taking video of Jupiter from his telescope in hopes that he might capture something noteworthy…he got a bit more than he was expecting At 18:33 UTC the video that Gerrit […]
Solar Flare On Sun

Could Our Sun Produce A Superflare? Wiping Out Technology And Earth’s Ability To Sustain Life

by CHIRPon March 26, 2016
You May Have Heard Of A Solar Flares. Well This Is Like That…But Super. Our sun produces normal solar flares on a regular basis. These are large flashes of light produced by the sun when magnetic energy built up in the solar atmosphere is released all at once. These flares are also what cause earths brilliant […]

Caught For The First Time Ever, Flash of Exploding Star

The Early Flash Of An Exploding Star, Caught For The First Time Ever

by CHIRPon March 24, 2016
This Is Incredible NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has just captured, for the first time, the flash of an exploding star. Led by astrophysicist Peter Garnavich, an international science team have recently analyzed Kepler and the light it captured from 500 galaxies over three years. They were searching through 50 million stars looking for a supernova(s) [massive stellar […]
