Observations of Ceres have detected recent variations in its surface, revealing that the only dwarf planet in the inner solar system is a dynamic body that continues to evolve and change.
Artificial intelligence can automatically identify craters on the moon, and may eventually tell us more about the formation of the solar system
European Solar Market Grows 28% in 2017; Turkey leading solar market 9 February 2018 (Solar Power Europe) “European countries installed at least 8.61 GW of solar power systems in 2017…[which is] a 28% increase in comparison to the 6.72...Show More Summary
(Tokyo Institute of Technology) Scientists report the existence of 15 new planets -- including one 'super-Earth' that could harbor liquid water -- orbiting small, cool stars near our solar system. These stars, known as red dwarfs, are of enormous interest for studies of planetary formation and evolution.
While Tesla's Powerwall may be the most well-known residential solar energy storage system, it's not the only one - and it's facing increased competition. Nearly all major residential solar companies are now developing a similar household energy storage system, either independently or in collaboration with another company. Show More Summary
Comets which consist of two parts, like Chury, can form after a catastrophic collision of larger bodies. Such collisions may have taken place in a later phase of our solar system, which suggests that Chury can be much younger than previously assumed. This is shown through computer simulations by an international research group with the participation of the University of Bern.
Saturn's storm are sights to behold. Unlike other planets in the Solar System, the ringed planet seems to store up huge amounts of energy over multiple Earth decades and then release it all at once in the form of a swirling and chaotic lightning storm.
With its subsurface ocean and geysers spewing water and complex organic molecules, scientists say Saturn’s moon Enceladus is one of the most promising places to look for extraterrestrial life in the solar system. But what exactly would life on Enceladus look like and how would it function? After...
Mild temperatures and sunny skies helped California set two new solar records in recent days. On Sunday, March 4, the California Independent System Operator saw an all-time peak percentage of demand served by solar, hitting a record 49.95 percent at 12:58 p.m. Show More Summary
This hasn't been seen anywhere else in the Solar System.
Venus is our inner neighbour in the Solar System. The second planet from the Sun, it is another rocky world, The post Venus – our neighbour from hell appeared first on Skymania News. Visit us to read of latest discoveries and for observing advice. Show More Summary
The Juno spacecraft is revealing what’s churning below the surface of the largest planet in the solar system.
Before dawn, a string of planets highlight the eastern sky: Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter. Jupiter and Saturn are the largest planets in our solar system, while Mars is second only to Mercury as the smallest. With a backyard telescope, the rings of Saturn and the bands of Jupiter are clearly visible, while Mars appears as […]
Humanity may need look no further than our own Solar System in the search for alien life, researchers probing one of Saturn's moons said Tuesday.
On cultivating "the power to swell the moment from the resources of our own heart until it supersedes sun & moon & solar system in its expanding immensity."
"WASP-39b shows exoplanets can have much different compositions than those of our solar system," said co-author David Sing of the University of Exeter in Devon, United Kingdom. "Hopefully this diversity we see in exoplanets will give us clues in figuring...
10 times brighter than any flares from our Sun.
Yuri Horwitz, co-founder and CEO of Sol Systems, believes solar power will dominate new electricity generation in the US by 2022. Keep reading to discover the three reasons why.
And with that, the Mike Schur TV Universe expands into yet another solar system. Natalie Morales, who you probably remember as Tom Haverford’s girlfriend-turned-restaurant-employee-turned-future-wife over the course of a few seasons on Parks and Recreation, will be starring in Schur’s newest Cheers-esque NBC pilot called Abby’s. Per the network’s description, ... More »
Jupiter's icy moon Europa is a major target of astrobiology research in light of the possibility that it offers a habitable environment in the Solar System. Under its ice crust, estimated to be 10 km thick, is an ocean of liquid water of over 100 km deep. A huge source of energy deriving from gravitational interaction with Jupiter keeps this water warm.
