If you're in Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, or India, you should be able to witness a partial solar eclipse tomorrow, October 25. This is when the Moon covers only a part of the Sun instead of the entirety, which is known as a total solar eclipse. Remember to keep your eyes safe and watch with a special solar filter or by looking at the Sun's reflection.
Tomorrow night, October 21, the Orionid meteor shower will peak with as many as 20 meteors per hour on average. The meteors will appear to radiate from the Orion constellation. I hope you will be able to enjoy this month's largest meteor shower!
Like last month, this will be an eventful one, including several meteor showers and a partial solar eclipse. Take a look at all of these astronomical events that await us this month in this stargazing calendar for October 2022.
After a long hiatus, we at CosmoBC decided to bring back the monthly stargazing calendar. We hope to help you keep track of the best astronomical events you may wish to observe in the night sky this coming month of September.
As space travel evolves, so too will its launch sites. Instead of building stationary launch pads like the ones that NASA and other space agencies have used traditionally, SpaceX is working to convert two floating oil rigs into off-shore launch pads. How is SpaceX turning oil rigs into launch pads?
Traditionally, satellites were simply strapped to larger rockets designed to push them into higher orbits, but this can be an incredible waste of fuel and resources. However, Spaceflight Inc.’s Sherpa vehicles may help change that. So what are Sherpa vehicles, and how are they supporting satellite launches?
Physicists have always wanted to influence and control quantum molecules for success in doing so would result in technology feats like earthquake sensors which can change our lifestyle for the better. It had been a long-sought dream of atomic physicists to bring multiple molecules together in a single quantum state and researchers at the University ...
Recently, a research paper was published by Erik Lentz, PhD in Physics at the University of Washington, on achieving superluminal speeds without violating physical laws or needing negative energy. This astounding paper was published in the extremely prestigious journal, Quantum Gravity.
We rely on remote sensing satellites every day, but what types of remote sensing are there? Check out the main tools that help us navigate, forecast weather, obtain earth surface data, keep track of natural disasters, and more.
More than 2,000 satellites are orbiting the Earth at this very moment. They are used for communication and many other purposes. This article covers different aspects of satellite uses in navigation, with a strong emphasis on navigation. Then it looks into the Galileo Satellite Navigation System.
