Is NASA Planning Another Mission To Saturn

Humanity’s light at Saturn has gone out. NASA’s robotic Cassini spacecraft burned up in the ringed planet’s atmosphere Friday morning (Sept. 15), ending a remarkable 13-year run at Saturn that has revolutionized scientists’ understanding of the outer solar system and its potential to host life. For example, Cassini discovered methane seas on Saturn’s huge moon Titan and geysers of water vapor blasting from fellow moon Enceladus. Both of these moons are worthy of much...

Londoners Want Uber Back, Sign Petition

Half a million people have signed an online petition in under 24 hours supporting Uber’s bid to stay on the streets of London, showing the company is turning to its tried-and-tested tactic of asking customers for help when it locks horns with regulators. London’s transport authorities stunned the powerful start-up on Friday when they deemed Uber unfit to run a taxi service for safety reasons and stripped it of its license from next week, although it can continue to operate while it appeals. The...

Astronomers Ponder The Role Of Physics In Life

Understanding the origin of life is arguably one of the most compelling quests for humanity. This quest has inevitably moved beyond the puzzle of life on Earth to whether there’s life elsewhere in the universe. Is life on Earth a fluke? Or is life as natural as the universal laws of physics? Jeremy England, a biophysicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is trying to answer these profound questions. In 2013, he formulated a hypothesis that physics may spontaneously trigger chemicals...

Astronomers Find Titanium Oxide On Aline Planet

For the first time ever, titanium oxide has been spotted in an exoplanet’s skies, a new study reports. Astronomers using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile detected the substance in the atmosphere of WASP-19b, a huge, scorching-hot planet located 815 light-years from Earth. The presence of titanium oxide in the atmosphere of WASP-19b can have substantial effects on the atmospheric temperature structure and circulation,” study co-author Ryan MacDonald,...

With Boron On Mars Prove Life Once Existed

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has discovered boron in Gale Crater — new evidence that the Red Planet may have been able to support life on its surface in the ancient past. Boron is a very interesting element to astrologists; on Earth, it’s thought to stabilize the sugary molecule ribose. Ribose is a key component of ribonucleic acid (RNA), a molecule that’s present in all living cells and drives metabolic processes. But ribose is notoriously unstable, and to form RNA, it is thought...

Chrome 63 To Start Warning Users Of Man In The Middle Attacks

Google Chrome 63 will warn users when third-party software is performing a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack that hijacks their internet connection.  A MitM attack happens when a communication between two systems is intercepted by a malicious actor through an application installed on a user’s computer, enabling them to send, alter and receive data meant for someone else. It isn’t an easy attack to perpetrate, mainly because many MitM toolkits fail to correctly rewrite the user’s...
