The Alien Observatory --"Deciphering a Non-DNA-Based Alien Genetic Code"

Detecting DNA—or its extraterrestrial equivalent—may be critical technology for future missions in the search for life beyond Earth. NASA scientists have justifiably focused on water because all biology as we know it requires this fluid. A wild card, however, is...        

The Alien Observatory: "NASA is Using Earth as an Exoplanet in Search for Alien Life"

"An alien would spot three planets in our solar system in the habitable zone [Earth, Mars and Venus]," says research scientist Andrew Rushby, of NASA Ames Research Center, in Moffett Field, California. "Location alone isn't enough, but we know that...        

NASA detects solar flare pulses at Sun and Earth

When our Sun erupts with giant explosions—such as bursts of radiation called solar flares—we know they can affect space throughout the solar system as well as near Earth. But monitoring their effects requires having observatories in many places with many perspectives, much the way weather sensors all over Earth can help us monitor what's happening with a terrestrial storm.

By making the planes into mobile observatories, researchers will be able to track the eclipse as it moves across the Earth. The post NASA Jets Equipped With Telescopes Will Chase Solar Eclipse 2017 appeared first on ExtremeTech.

NASA to Test Earth Defense Observatory & Systems During Asteroid Flyby

"This is the perfect target for such an exercise because while we know the orbit of 2012 TC4 well enough to be absolutely certain it will not impact Earth, we haven't established its exact path just yet," said Paul Chodas,...       ...
