Doubt About The Presence of Water on Mars

water on mars news

A few months back you might have heard that a group of Italian Scientists has found water on the surface of Mars, but now it has come to the point that the news was not true.

A recent study published has concluded that NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter finding was false and it was a programmatic error to show water on the surface of Red Planet.

It revealed that The Orbiter's Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer CRISM can be confused by high contrast areas and the software used to correct gave accidentally the fake signals of hydrated salts called perchlorates. which gave the hint of salt water which flows.

When the researchers were investigating the orbiters images; they found perchlorates everywhere even at the places which made no sense. That's what made scientists suspect that was an error.

The lack of the salts may mean that a number of the sites that were thought to carry any type of life, as well as putative streaks of liquid water on the walls of Martian craters, area unit presumably to be dry and lifeless, reportable Science News.

However, this flaw doesn't rule out each hint of salty water presence, however, no matter is there may be troublesome to tell apart. The researchers' area unit currently developing a detection technique that might use various items of proof rather than the one from before.

Stephen Hawking's Final Book gives brief Answers to Big Questions

Stephen Hawking's final work was launched by his children on Monday which discuss issues from Existence of God to Time Travel and other big questions. His children completed his final book after he died last year.

Stephen started his book last year to answer the common question which he encountered many times from public. The title of the book is ''Brief Answers to Big Questions''.

His daughter, Lucy Hawking, said he was regularly asked for such question and this book contains his clear and most authentic answers. We all wish he was here to see it published, she added.

What are these big questions and what did he write answers to them?

Is there a God?How Did it All Began?What is inside a black hole?Can we predict the future?Is Time Travel possible?Will we survive on Earth?Is there any other intelligent life in Universe?Should we colonize space?How do we shape the future?Multiple challenges Stephen Hawking says the simplest explanation is that God does not exist and…

Russia Trying to Bring back Extinct Animals

A research facility is being settled in a region of Russia by Vladimir Putin at 4th Economic Eastern Forum which aims to study the remains and clone extinct animals like woolly mammoth, woolly rhinoceros, cave lion and breeds of long-gone horses of old times.

The investment sought for this project is 5.9Million USD.

The animals which could weight 6000 kg have been disappeared from that territory about 4 thousands years ago.

About 80% of the samples of the extinct animals with preserved tissue have been found in this region Siberia .  

Human flights to ISS will begin in 2019

NASA has confirmed that manned space flight will be carried by SpaceX and Boeing in the mid of 2019.SpaceX rocket for ISS will depart in June 2019 while Boeing spacecraft will go in August 2019.
It will be the first US mission since the retirement of the shuttle in 2011.NASA's astronauts are currently using Russian made Soyuz spacecraft and its contract will end in June 2019.NASA said on 4th of the October that it will give monthly updates 

Phil McAlister who is the director of commercial flights in NASA said in Blog that 

New Updates schedule is better but launch schedule may be uncertainHe also said these are new spacecraft and lot of engineering work has to be done before take off.

Back in 2014 both the SpaceX and Boeing received $6.8bn from NASA to build spacecraft that will take humans to ISS.

Boeing has said they will be ready for Orbital Flight Test in March 2019.
The Success of this manned space shuttle will be a great achievement of the commercial space industry, and NASA will …
