Early Human Settlement On Mars By Sheltering Them In Excavated Underground Structures Due To Harsh Climate And Hazardous Solar And Galactic Cosmic Rays

Humans will be able to reside on new planets in forthcoming years thanks to progression in science and technology, starting with the nearest planets and moving on to the more remote ones. A few missions for human settlement on Mars […]

Circuit QED Controlled To Implement Quantum Computers

Quantum computers spare no efforts to offer the superior promise of performing complex and unimaginable problems, which are far beyond the reach of any classical computers known at present, in a reasonable time with high accuracy. The new approach for […]

Dark Matter Meets Einstein’s Equivalence Principle: A Tale Of Two Particles

Dark matter is one of the most puzzling challenges of present-day physics. It is a mysterious entity that presents itself only through the gravitational interaction and corresponds to about 27% of the energy content of the Universe at present. Its […]

Landing On Mars: Watch Out For The Hazardous Objects

Imagine that you have been successfully recruited as a Mars immigrator. After celebrating being a pioneer and approaching closer to this red planet, you find out with horror that there is no Hazard Detection and Avoidance (HDA) system onboard! That […]

Can Tardigrades Theoretically Survive On Exoplanets?

Tardigrades are water microbes (or water bears) that can survive in extreme conditions and can withstand very high energy cosmic radiations when exposed to a vacuum in space. The major motivation for studying tardigrades on exoplanets is that tardigrade proteins […]

Measuring Distance In Space Using The Dark Energy Survey Portal

Distance measurement is an important challenge in astronomy. Between the parallax of nearby stars and the redshift of the most distant galaxies, there are a lot of steps. With the Dark Energy rush, several large astronomical surveys are trying to […]

Using Algae As An Alternative Source Of Environmental Control And Life Support Systems In Space Exploration

Human spaceflight can be thought of like an extended, deep-woods camping trip. It requires bringing your necessities (food, shelter, etc) and packing out all waste. Depending on the duration of the camping trip, sometimes all the supplies needed can’t be […]

The Milky Way Galaxy’s Global Order And Mirror-Image Symmetry, Co-Rotation Radius, And The Local Incoming Mass

Can we “slice” a spiral arm into its components and order the slices? The Moon orbits around the Earth on a rough circle, the Earth orbits on a rough circle around the Sun, and the Sun orbits on a rough […]

A Computer Vision Application For Galaxy Detection

Computer Vision is an interdisciplinary field that combines knowledge from disciplines such as Physics, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering. Its main goal is to develop algorithms and systems capable to reproduce human vision skills. The fields most closely related to […]

Atomic Clock In Space To Test Changing Speed Of Light

Look how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness — Anne Frank In 1919, a total eclipse expedition led by Arthur Eddington helped verify Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. By observing the eclipse from the African […]
