'We are On Mars' NASA releases Most high Resolution Pictures of MARS ever

(Scroll Down to see Images)

NASA has released the highest resolution images of Mars to date. These images were taken by NASA's Insight lander is on Mars. After traveling the distance of 3 million miles in 7 months,Insight landed on Mars on 27November. It took a week to deploy it and make necessary preparation to start operation.


Insight twitter handle said
We're ON MARS, you guys
The surface of the mars is dusty red. These images are readily available to the public.
landing at the speed of 123kmph was difficult due to the thin environment and dust somehow sneaked into one camera, Context Camera, despite the protective covering: said by Tom Hoffman of JPL(Jet .propulsion Laboratory) NASA. The landing time was given the name as
Seven minutes of Terror.
Lander has yet to deploy all of its tools.

Bruce Banerdt, the mission's principal investigator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, said:
Today we can see the first glimpses of our workspace.By early next week, we'll be imaging it in finer detail and creating a full mosaic.

InSight's primary instrument is a French-built seismometer, designed to record the slightest vibrations from "marsquakes" and meteor impacts around the planet.

Insight mission is too map the interior of the planet, heat etc; for which it has a German made instrument which can dig deep til 16 feet.NASA plans to the rover to Mars to study primitive life, if ever existed on mars.
Here are the Images:

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 …
