NASA Scientists Say 'Impossible' Space Engine Could Work

NASA scientists at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston have confirmed that an “impossible” space engine could actually work and might be able to radically alter space exploration missions. The study, released by NASA scientists, showed that a microwave thruster system requiring no propellant would appear to generate a small amount of thrust. If the technology is successful, it could ... Read More »

Researchers find binary star system with misaligned protoplanetary discs

Researchers find binary star system with misaligned protoplanetary discs

Unlike our own lone Sun, most solar systems contain a pair of binary stars; scientists recently observed a pair of “wildly-misaligned” planet-forming disks in a young binary system called HK Tau. The findings, published today in the journal Nature, were made using the Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the National Radio Astronomy Observatory reported. The results reveal the clearest-ever picture of protoplanetary ... Read More »
