To clear things up, they are not actually growing weed on space; its hemp they are growing. Hemp is the non-psychoactive properties of CBD that doesn’t get you “high” – and it is nearly about to be launched into outer space. You read it right! Among the planets and stars, and aboard an International Space Station, the scientist will attempt zero-gravity hemp cultivation.
Who is behind this idea?
The Kentucky-based Space Tango is the brain behind the hemp’s space launch. Over the past few years, the company has become a leader in research …

To say that Dragon Ball is pretty fantastic is an understatement—it’s really quite out there. Underneath the layers of fantasy, however, one will find Chinese cultural concepts as well as some science that has echoes in the very real, very modern world of today.
These are some of those Dragon Ball Z concepts and ideas that we’ve seen more or less come to life — including the closest matches we have with our technology today.
The Scouter
One of the coolest pieces of tech on Dragon Ball Z is the scouters sported by the likes of …

Spacesuits aren’t just “those grey clothes people wear when they go to space”. They were, in a way, made with the same t shirt printing as custom T-shirts but with more serious intent. They can also be likened to a single-passenger spacecraft as they serve the same purpose – to transport and protect.
NASA calls their official spacesuits as the Extravehicular Mobility Unit or EMU. In simpler terms, it’s a suit that is not essentially a part of the spaceship but is spacious enough to allow the movement of the astronaut within it.
Why Astronauts Need …

The New Frontiers program of NASA has held a lottery that would determine how the agency would focus on future exploration missions. Drones have been sent out to an asteroid that has already been fully uncovered.
These missions fall under three groups: inexpensive missions, such as the Discovery endeavors worth $600- to $700-million; the Flagship missions that cost $2 billion and are launched every decade; and the New Frontiers that work as the middle ground.
NASA then accepts mission proposals made up of five themes: sample return of comet surface, lunar pole sample return, ocean worlds such as …

Jupiter is known for its multiple stripes of different colors and is also famous for its Great Red Spot, a product of the natural gases within the planet itself. These colors are due to the chemistry of Jupiter’s gassy atmosphere, though the pattern for the stripes is attributed to long-lasting winds called zonal flows, which work like jet streams on Earth. The Earth has geographical features that interrupt such winds and Jupiter happens to lack those features. This means that the stripes are smooth lines that form around Jupiter’s atmosphere uninterrupted.
There were observations during NASA’s …

Most of Earth’s early life forms were around 3.95 billion years of age when asteroids and comets crashed on the planet every now and then. Scientists from Japan have gone to Canada, particularly in northern Labrador, where they found a stretch of remote land that contained samples of old rocks that existed billions of years back. In spite of some doubts regarding the dates, there were interesting finds that proved that there was life in a period of time when the Earth would not have been inhabitable.
The first eon of Earth’s history, the Hadean Eon, was a hostile period because of the extreme …

There is evidence that water exists in the moon. The 1990s brought to light the existence of water in regions coated with frost, though this was met with a lot of skepticism. Later on, India had sent the Chandrayaan-1 probe to better analyze the contents of the region in question. There, they discovered water trapped in craters in the lunar poles, which are like the Earth’s poles in a way. These regions had 30% water ice trapped within their craters.
There is a lot of excitement over the discovery as lunar ice, which some are calling it no. The discovery stated that the lunar ice can be used for fuel …

KELT-11b was considered to be one of the largest objects known, and it’s about 40 percent wider than Jupiter.  A team of astronomers find an exomoon. It was the first of its kind to be discovered. Exomoons are satellites orbiting a planet around another star. What makes this find interesting is the scale of the planet-moon system, although “moon” is quite a loose term as the object is reputedly around the size of Neptune, and the planet it is orbiting is ten times the mass of Jupiter or 3,000 times that of Earth.
This changes the way we categorize systems and invites questions on how big can …
