Exciting Advances in Extraterrestrial Life Research!

Recent research in extraterrestrial life research reveals very exciting results. NASA’s Mars killing rover Perseverance has managed to successfully test surface soil particles for the first time. These particles are thought to reveal myoconformities in the planet’s past that could carry the effects of life. With evidence of the presence of water in Mars’ past, scientists are looking to themselves to investigate whether previous life forms existed on the planet.

The Perseverance spacecraft, which has landed in Jezero Crater, where there is an ancient giant lake said to be similar to Lake Salda, will collect rock fragments and samples from the Martian surface; will look for water and traces of life. With the samples collected by the spacecraft, it is planned to return to Earth in the 2030s.

We found the landing on the surface of Mars for you. Let’s watch that video together. I leave the link below.


“Space Garbage Problem: Orbiting Debris Is Threatening”

Space extensions and the use of satellites are leading to increased connections in space. Garbage from thousands of ancient satellite settlements, rocket enclosures and other spacecraft around our planet is causing damage to satellites and spacecraft. This issue requires space agencies and private organizations to step up their efforts to act responsibly in space and clean up active space junk. Space agencies, satellite operators, and other extensions must collaborate and be solution-driven to ensure a clean environment in space. As proof of this, we can give the following example: After Sputnik 1, the world’s first artificial satellite launched by the Russians in 1957, about 6,000 satellites have been sent into space. However, only about 1000 of these satellites are still in service. That means we have plenty of trash in space. In other words, human-made wastes pose a problem in space as well as on earth.

Testing New Wheels for the Moon

In June 2023, a skilled engineer oversees tests of NASA’s CADRE rover in California’s Mars Yard. The rover, equipped with advanced wheels and navigation software, undergoes trials for Mars exploration. NASA’s innovative project involves sending three suitcase-sized rovers to the Moon. These self-reliant rovers locate sunny spots, deploy solar panels to recharge, and conduct experiments to showcase their capabilities. This endeavor symbolizes humanity’s relentless pursuit of knowledge and exploration beyond Earth’s confines.

Why Aren’t We Crushed Under the Weight of the Atmosphere?

The reason why we are not crushed under the weight of the atmosphere is that the air-filled organs in our body and the blood pressure apply outward pressure by the inward pressure of the outside air. The mass of the atmosphere is a mixture of various gases and is evenly distributed over the Earth’s surface. Pressure refers to the force acting on a unit area, where the air pressure below 0 °C at sea level is defined as “1 atmosphere”. The ubiquity of air means it’s inside our bodies, around us, and below us. This balances out when we are exposed to the weight of the atmosphere.

Rick and Morty

The adult animated series, which started airing on December 02, 2013, tells the adventures of a super scientist and his not-so-bright grandson. Rick and Morty explore endless universes together and cause mayhem in the series about the endless adventures of Rick, an alcoholic and careless scientist, with his not-so-intelligent 14-year-old anxious grandson, Morty.
