No, Black Holes Will Never Consume The Universe

No matter how long you wait, the matter that makes you probably won't end up inside a black hole.

A Crashed Israeli Spacecraft Spilled Tardigrades on the Moon

The Beresheet lunar lander carried thousands of books, DNA samples, and a few thousand water bears to the moon. But did any of it survive the crash?

The spacecraft on desolate asteroid Ryugu, some 300 million km from Earth, is on a mission of collecting samples in hopes of finding clues to the origin of the solar system.

No, This Is Not A Hole In The Universe

There aren't any holes in the Universe at all. What actually exists is far more interesting.

Like clockwork, nearly every fourth February includes one extra day. February otherwise known as Leap Day, isn't exactly a holiday. The post What Is the Point of Leap Day? appeared first on Reader& Digest. 365 Day Calendar, Yearly Calendar, March Month, February, June Solstice, Leap Day, Closer To The Sun, What's The Point, T 4

8 Scientific Facts Everyone Should Know About Leap Day

It isn't just a day that comes every four years; it's everything we need to keep our calendar aligned with Earth's orbit.

This Is How Elon Musk Can Fix The Damage His Starlink Satellites Are Causing To Astronomy

Observations have been ruined; scientific satellites with the right-of-way have had to alter course. Here's a how-to guide to doing better.

Saturn's magnificent rings are only about 33 feet to a half-mile thick and dump some 40 tons of ice onto Saturn every second. This means they should exist for only about million years and researchers think they could be nearing the end of their lives.

A brief astronomical history of Saturn's amazing rings

Although the rings of Saturn may look like a permanent fixture of the planet, they are ever-changing. New analyses of the rings reveal how and when they were made — and whether they'll last.

The day Earth had a near-miss with a 'city-killer' asteroid

The 100-metre wide rock called Asteroid 2019 OK raced by at 11.22am on Thursday, passing within about 70,000km – closer to us than the moon’s orbit.
