Giant, hyper-detailed Moon model is now making its way around the world

moon model

It takes just about 27 days for the Moon we all know and love to make its way around the Earth, but it's going to take far longer for a giant model of the Moon to do the same. Museum of the Moon is an art exhibit that provides visitors with an up-close-and-personal look at our planet's only natural satellite, and it's currently traveling between festivals and universities so that everyone can experience its awesomeness.

Scientist says there are over 100 planets in our solar system

new planets

Most of us grew up learning that there are nine planets in our solar system. Back in 2006 that all changed, when Pluto was demoted from being labeled a proper planet to its new classification as a dwarf planet, leaving just eight true planets in our celestial neighborhood. Now, a group of scientists says Pluto should definitely be added back to the planet list — oh, and that there are over 100 other objects in our solar system that should also be called planets.

Space Station astronauts celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with gorgeous night shot of Dublin

dublin at night

Here on Earth, most people celebrate St. Patrick's Day by heading down to their local watering hole for a pint of Guinness or maybe a couple glasses of green beer. Up on the International Space Station, however, such a thing just isn't possible, but that doesn't stop them from recognizing Earthen traditions all the same. NASA Commander Shane Kimbrough and ESA pilot Thomas Pesquet took the opportunity to peer down from their perch some 200-odd miles above the surface to catch a glimpse of the city that is probably partying harder than anyone tonight: Dublin, Ireland.

Hundreds of David Bowie stamps fell from space, and now you can win one

david bowie stamps

When David Bowie passed away early last year at the age of 69 it impacted many of his millions and millions of fans in a very profound way. Tributes were in no short supply, and the late musician has been honored and memorialized at length. The UK's Royal Mail issued tasteful commemorative stamp sets depicting some of Bowie's most iconic album covers, but that wasn't quite enough to satisfy the company's Bowie fever, so a few days ago it launched hundreds of those collectible stamps into space. As planned, the balloon eventually went boom, sending the stamps tumbling towards Earth, and now you can win a set of them for yourself.

Government contractor says we could have a base camp around Mars by 2028

mars mission

At this point it's clear that humans are headed to Mars sooner or later, and it's just a matter of when, who, and exactly what their mission will be. Aerospace juggernaut and government contractor Lockheed Martin is pretty bullish on the concept of humanity paying a visit to the red planet and even proposed a timeframe for when such an adventure would be possible: 10 to 12 years.

If there’s life on one of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets, that could mean there’s life on all of them

trappist-1 exoplanets

The discovery of seven new exoplanets orbiting the relatively nearby star TRAPPIST-1 is exciting, and the fact that three of those planets are considered to be comfortably within the habitable zone of their star multiplies the importance of that news by a factor of ten. Now, some researchers are suggesting that if life has indeed developed on one of the newly-discovered habitable worlds, there's a really good chance that there's probably life on all three of them.

exoplanet news

Space news moves pretty fast, which is why you've probably already forgotten about the extremely cool discovery NASA and astronomers from around the world announced late last month. The announcement that seven roughly Earth-sized exoplanets were discovered orbiting a nearby star called TRAPPIST-1 was, and still is, big news, and today we finally get our first glimpse at what the star looks like.
