How Test of Falcon 9 Rocket is Step Forward for SpaceX in Rocket Reusability

Several times, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has been seen talking about cutting cost of a rocket launch by using used rocket. The company took a step forward in the direction of reusable rocket when it tested on Thursday one of its recently recovered rocket. SpaceX released a video where the rocket could be seen test-fired for the first time since its landing in May.

NASA’s NuSTAR reaches Step Closer to Identify Massive X-ray Bursting Black Holes

Black hole, a region in the universe where gravity’s force is so strong that even light could not escape, has been a mystery for science since it was predicted for the first time. Earlier, it was speculated that such gigantic holes in the space are a source of radiations spreading the universe. Scientists call this phenomenon ‘the cosmic X-ray background’.

Study pinpoints black holes that emit high-energy X-rays

In the universe, black holes have one of the strongest beams of X-rays originating from them. Black holes have been a hot topic of debate among astronomers for past few decades. Yet, little is known about these massive regions with immense gravitational pull. For the first time ever, now the ‘sopranos’ of the X-ray choir have been discovered.

SpaceX has received the order from NASA’s Commercial Crew Program for another crew mission to the International Space Station in Dragon capsules. Both, SpaceX and Boeing have been awarded two mission contracts by NASA, but before that both the companies need to get safe to fly certification for their rockets and capsules.

Extraordinary story behind this distant flickering star

Extraordinary story behind this distant flickering star

A star located at 380 light years from our planet in the constellation Scorpius brightens and then fades every 1.97 minutes.

Recently, astronomers used the ESO's Very Large Telescope and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, along with many other telescopes and managed to determine the extraordinary story about the flickering star.

Astronauts Travelling into Deep-Space at Increased Heart Health Risk: Study

A new study has shown that exposure to deep-space radiation may have taken a toll on the hearts of NASA astronauts who flew to the moon on the Apollo missions in the 1960s and 1970s and were the only humans to have flown beyond the protective magnetic shielding of Earth.
