Scientists Use Meteoroid Shockwaves to Locate New Craters on Mars

Scientists Use , Meteoroid Shockwaves , to Locate New Craters on Mars. Scientists have located new craters on the surface of Mars using shockwaves caused by meteoroids that struck the planet. 'The Guardian' reports that the new craters will help scientists build a more accurate picture of the deep internal structure of the red planet. . This is the first time we have felt and heard an impact on another planet, Professor Raphael Garcia, Planetary seismologist at the Higher Institute of Aeronautics and Space at the University of Toulouse, via 'The Guardian'. The seismic data recorded by Nasa’s InSight lander included four impact events that the researchers explored in detail. The seismic data recorded by Nasa’s InSight lander included four impact events that the researchers explored in detail. Signs of new craters were then found using Nasa’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Photos taken before and after revealed new black patches on the ground, which were used to pinpoint the impact sites. One meteoroid crashed into Mars on September 5, 2021, resulting in three distinct shock waves. . The first shockwave was created when the space rock slammed into the Martian atmosphere traveling at high speeds. . The second occurred when the meteoroid exploded just miles above the surface of the planet, creating multiple fragments. Those fragments then smashed into the ground, creating several fresh craters. . 'The Guardian' reports that the data could prove to be extremely valuable for planetary scientists studying Mars

Breakthrough Device Could Be the First Step Toward Terraforming Mars

Breakthrough Device , Could Be the First Step , Toward Terraforming Mars. 'Newsweek' reports that a device capable of converting carbon dioxide into oxygen on Mars could open the door to colonization of the red planet. The lunchbox-sized instrument generates breathable gas from Mars' thin atmosphere. The device was able to reach a target of producing six grams of oxygen per hour, which is equivalent to the rate of an average tree on Earth. 'Newsweek' reports that the invention could open the door to establishing farms on a planet 100 million miles away from Earth. It could also prove to be essential for the future development of human settlements on the red planet. Since February 2021, the MIT-led Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) has successfully converted Mars' CO2-rich atmosphere into oxygen. This is the first demonstration of actually using resources on the surface of another planetary body, and transforming them chemically into something that would be useful for a human mission. , Dr. Michael Hecht, principal investigator, via 'Newsweek'. It's historic in that sense, Dr. Michael Hecht, principal investigator, via 'Newsweek'. Since landing on Mars as part of NASA's Perseverance mission, MOXIE has been able to produce oxygen out of a number of different atmospheric conditions. We have learned a tremendous amount that will inform future systems at a larger scale, Dr. Michael Hecht, principal investigator, via 'Newsweek'. The team's findings were published in 'Science Advances' on August 31

Massive Asteroid Set for Closest Approach to Earth Since 1914 [Video]

Massive Asteroid Set for Closest Approach to Earth Since 1914

Massive Asteroid , Set for Closest Approach , to Earth Since 1914. On August 20, a humongous asteroid larger than Giza's Great Pyramid will pass by Earth for the first time in over 100 years. On August 20, a humongous asteroid larger than Giza's Great Pyramid will pass by Earth for the first time in over 100 years. 'Newsweek' reports that the asteroid, named 2019 AV13, is forecast to pass Earth at a speed of about 20,000 miles per hour. It is expected to pass at a distance of about 3.2 million miles. The last time the asteroid passed this close to Earth was in 1914. The next time it will approach this close to our planet will be in the year 2113. 'Newsweek' reports that most asteroids originate in the Asteroid Belt orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids in the belt range in size from a few feet to the enormous Ceres which is 600 miles in diameter. As gravitational interaction pulls asteroids toward the Sun, it occasionally sends them on a course near the Earth. The 100 year interval between events is purely a statistical construct based on the number of objects of a particular size, their orbits and an arbitrary miss distance, so 100 years is an average. , Jay Tate, director of the The Spaceguard Center observatory, via 'Newsweek'. In fact it is just as likely that we'll have another similar close approach next year as we will in a century, Jay Tate, director of the The Spaceguard Center observatory, via 'Newsweek'

NASA Is Getting Ready to Smash a Spacecraft Into an Asteroid [Video]

NASA Is Getting Ready to Smash a Spacecraft Into an Asteroid

NASA Is Getting Ready, to Smash a Spacecraft, Into an Asteroid . On September 26, NASA will intentionally slam a golf cart-sized spacecraft into a tiny asteroid. At the time of impact, the bullet-like spacecraft will be traveling at 14,000 miles per hour. At the time of impact, the bullet-like spacecraft will be traveling at 14,000 miles per hour. 'Business Insider' reports that the mission is humanity's first test of our ability to deflect dangerous asteroids. Currently, NASA is aware of the location and orbit of about 28,000 local asteroids. In November 2021, NASA launched the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The $308 million spacecraft has since traveled 6.8 million miles to reach Dimorphos, a small asteroid that orbits a larger asteroid, Didymos. DART's mission is to nudge the space rock into a slightly tighter orbit around its companion asteroid. I'm highly confident that we are going to hit on Monday and that there will be a complete success, Lindley Johnson, NASA's first planetary defense officer, via 'Business Insider'. DART's Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical navigation (DRACO) will capture one image per second to document the impact. We are excited for what DRACO will reveal about Didymos and Dimorphos in the hours and minutes leading up to impact, Carolyn Ernst, DRACO instrument scientist at APL, via 'Business Insider'. NASA will livestream the images captured by the spacecraft on its website beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET on September 26.

Fifty Years After Apollo, NASA Starting From Scratch on Moon Mission [Video]

Fifty Years After Apollo, NASA Starting From Scratch on Moon Mission

Fifty Years After Apollo, , NASA Starting From Scratch , on Moon Mission. 'Newsweek' reports that NASA's upcoming Artemis mission to the moon comes over fifty years after the space agency scrapped the original moon program. Since then, NASA reportedly discarded much of the hardware that was used in those first successful trips to our planet's rocky satellite. Artemis is NASA's first step at returning astronauts to the moon and establishing a sustainable presence on the lunar surface. The Artemis 1 mission serves as a test of NASA's new Orion spacecraft and the most powerful rocket ever built, the Space Launch System. Over fifty years ago, NASA dismantled the Apollo program, essentially shedding the ability to carry astronauts to the moon. Robert Frost, an instructor and flight controller at NASA, explains that the incredibly complex technology that carried the Apollo astronauts to and on the moon is now gone. An individual person cannot contemplate the scale of detail needed to assemble and operate those vehicles, Robert Frost, Instructor and flight controller at NASA, via Newsweek. So, when the Apollo program ended, the factories that assembled those vehicles were re-tasked or shut down. The jigs were disassembled. The molds were destroyed. , Robert Frost, Instructor and flight controller at NASA, via Newsweek. 'Newsweek' reports that the Apollo and Artemis missions have very different goals and require a distinct technological approach. I do think NASA will overcome this challenge, as we have the technology to accomplish these lunar landings— but the development and testing processes will need to be executed nearly flawlessly prior to the first landing attempt, Hank Pernicka, Professor of aerospace engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, via Newsweek
