Development in Space Science

One must wonder why is space science important for us? As we happily inhabit our beloved planet, why do we need to go into other universe and move into unknown space? This is mainly due to curious mind and yearning to learn more. We must know what is around us, are we alone here to do we have a company. Space science tells us all about our neighborhood. It explains the hidden mysteries of universe around us.

As the modern science is progressing, new discoveries are being made, we learn more and we are amazed more about the variety and brilliance of this universe surrounding us.

Space science is relatively a young field; it started to develop later in twentieth century. Since then it has come a long way. We hear new developments every day. To all space study enthusiasts, it will be interesting to know that,

Researches have created a new 3D model that can explain the formation of a hexagon storm on Saturn.

ESO telescope is able to see the trapped galaxies in black hole.

Scientists lately have been able to uncover the solutions of strange storms on Jupiter’s South Pole.

Astronomers of University of Warwick have explained that water vapours can be detected in the atmospheres of exoplanets by actually looking over the tops of their thick  clouds.

Recorded data from ESA (European Space Agency) Rosetta mission have revealed that comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has its own far-ultraviolet aurora.

It is the first time such electromagnetic emissions in the far-ultraviolet have been documented on a celestial object other than a planet or moon. A paper on this discovery  was released in the journal Nature Astronomy.

Scientists have also discovered an Earth- Sized ‘Pi Planet’ with a 3.14 day orbit.

Solar storm forecasts for Earth have taken a new enhanced form by taking use of public observations and recordings. Scientists have used public recordings to increase accuracy of computer forecast on when harmful CMIs will hit the planet Earth.

Climate change has been a matter of concern from a long time. Recently, a research has concluded that climate change is affecting astronomical observations. For which new advance telescopes are needed in future to avoid this hindrance.
