Apollo 11: Playtex female touch helped NASA land on the moon

It took a feminine touch to make sure Neil Armstrong and his moonwalking cohorts could make their huge leap for humanity and come to the moon. Specifically, a few sleepers from Playtex took on their detailed set of skills by manufacturing belt for American women. The drawers must be flexible, resilient and able to withstand temperatures as high as 240 …

Good news, space agencies say scary asteroid will not kill us all

exhale. We are safe from the asteroid as scary headlines warned us in early June, according to new observations from the European Space Agency and the European Southern Observatory. Space bar named 2006 QV89. It is about 20 to 50 meters above, and its orbit around the sun crosses the earth so that it was a 7,000 chance of colliding …

"Something Completely Unexpected" – Mysterious Disk Orbiting Supermassive Black Hole

NGC 3147 located some 130 million light-years away from Earth. The conundrum, the researchers say, is that the disk should not be based on current astronomical theories. However, the unexpected presence of a disk so close to a black hole offers a unique opportunity to test Albert Einstein's theories of relativity. General relativity describes gravity as the curvature of space, …

Explained: What does Ploonet mean?

The researchers explain that the angular momentum between the planet and its moon results in the moon's gravitational pull of its parent Imagine an exoplanet, a gas giant orbiting its star while a moon orbits the planet itself. Now suppose the moon turns rogue as it moves nearer to its star, breaking away – or being forced out of its …
