Here’s something you’d never expect to happen in a place with average temperatures of -67 degrees Fahrenheit — Mars’ flowing water is boiling!
It’s a paradigm shift.
A rocky body that’s neither exactly a comet nor an asteroid, may hold some interesting clues about how the planets in the solar system formed, including Earth. The tailless so-called Manx comet, named so after a breed of cats without tails, originates from the Oort cloud — a shell of icy objects that exist in the outermost reaches of the solar system. Although it’s more than a trillion miles away, this Manx comet is likely made of the same stuff that eventually coalesced to form Venus, Mars or even Earth.
All aboard the hype train!

NASA released a new set of images of Ceres – and they’re a sight to behold.f
A company called Aerojet Rocketdyne has won a $67 million contract from NASA to design and develop an advanced electric propulsion system that could power complex missions to asteroids and even to Mars.
You can’t get any more lunar than this without leaving the planet.
NASA astronauts have discovered a lonely planetary-like mass floating on its own, without a solar system. Imagine a galaxy, riddled with countless solar systems. Then zoom in slowly on a solar system – how do you picture it? There’s probably a star at the center, and several planets around it. That’s generally where we feel planets should be, rotating around
There’s confidence that reproducing in space is indeed possible, based on previous research. The most recent experiment made by Chinese scientists, for instance, proved that mammalian embryos can develop in microgravity.
