Would Humanity Survive a Decade-Long Blackout Caused By a Massive Solar Flare?

Experts say the observatory will give the grid operators time to shut down the grid to protect it in the case of a massive solar flare. But this warning will come only one hour before the flare hits the earth’s magnetic field, so many are skeptical about it making much difference.

NASA’s ‘Largest Picture Ever’ Taken – A Must See Video With Amazing Imagery

With today’s technology, it is easier than ever to relish in the beauties of not only planet Earth, but the universe. We have always been able to look up at the stars and have even had a telescope for some time that enabled us to focus in on the literal outer-beauty of where we are – and what’s out there is truly amazing. Complimenting this even further, NASA has released what is deemed the largest picture ever taken – and it will blow you away.
The image above takes you through over 100 million stars and travels more than 40,000 light years. It provides a startling glimpse at the sheer scale of our nearest galactic neighbor.

Pew, Pew, Pew! NASA Space Lasers to Map Earth’s Forests in 3D

A new laser instrument developed for the International Space Station is expected to generate incredible 3D maps of Earth’s forests. The instrument called Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) uses lidar, a special kind of laser technology, to create detailed 3D maps and measure the biomass of forests.

Star Trek-Like Invisible Shield Found Thousands Of Miles Above Earth

A team led by the University of Colorado Boulder has discovered an invisible shield some 7,200 miles above Earth that blocks so-called “killer electrons,” which whip around the planet at near-light speed and have been known to threaten astronauts, fry satellites and degrade space systems during intense solar storms.

Does Our Universe Bear the Scars of a Collision with Another Universe?

Though many physicists believe it’s possible that our universe is one of many in a multiverse, they struggle to find concrete evidence to back up that hypothesis. But now, we may find that evidence — if we look for the wreckage left behind by a collision of cosmic proportions.

Hungry Black Hole Eats Faster Than Thought Possible

Astronomers have discovered a black hole that is consuming gas from a nearby star 10 times faster than previously thought possible. The black hole — known as P13 — lies on the outskirts of the galaxy NGC7793 about 12 million light years from Earth and is ingesting a weight equivalent to 100 billion billion hot dogs every minute.

Black Holes DON’T Exist According to Scientist Who Claims Mathematical Proof

An American physicist claims she has mathematically refuted the existence of black holes in our universe. The new theory combines Steve Hawking’s radiation theory with quantum theory’s fundamental law that no information ever disappears from the universe. Professor Laura Mersini-Houghton from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill maintains she managed to merge two seemingly contradicting theories, Einstein’s theory of gravity and a fundamental law of quantum theory.
