Pluto Should Have Never Been Downgraded From A Planet, Some Scientists Claim

A new study claims that everyone's favorite tiny planet, Pluto, should have never been classified as a dwarf planet over a decade ago. As many of you might remember, 12 years ago in 2006 Pluto had its planet credentials yanked and had a "dwarf planet" sticker slapped on it by the Internation Astronomical Union (IAU), upsetting quite a few people (something that a lot of people have yet to get over to this day).

Was The International Space Station Sabotaged?

About a week ago you may have heard about a very small air leak aboard the Internation Space Station (or ISS for short) that caused a very slight drop in cabin pressure on August 30. Now, the leak was very easily fixed by astronauts and you may have thought it was no big deal, right? Well, think again. It would appear that this "no big deal" leak was potentially caused by a human, triggering the question "who did it?". The implications...

July 30, 2018, marked NASA's 60th anniversary when Congress passed the Nautical Aeronautics and Space Act on July 16. On July 29, 1958, President Dwight D.

NASA’s Opportunity Rover May Be Dead After Massive Dust Storm On Mars

After a multi-month-long global dust storm on our favorite red planet, our fears might be true; it appears that the Opportunity rover might actually be dead. This global dust storm started up in June, and on June 10 NASA lost communication with the 15-year-old Opportunity. While it may sound ominous, it isn't totally unexpected since this massive dust storm has, essentially, rendered Opportunity's solar panels moot. Those solar panels charge up Opportunity's batteries, but the dust in the atmosphere is...
