Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica developed a cavity nearly as large as Manhattan

Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica developed a cavity nearly as large as Manhattan

Scientists have discovered a gigantic cavity forming in the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica. The massive cavity is about two-thirds of the area of Manhattan and is said to be almost 1,000-feet tall and growing. The cavity is growing at the bottom of the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica, and the discovery is part of a NASA-led study of the glacier.

Discovery of 1.3km radius body in the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt is a first for astronomers

Discovery of 1.3km radius body in the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt is a first for astronomers

Astronomers are excited and have announced that a small and underfunded project has made a world's first discovery. For the first time, astronomers have been able to detect a 13km radius body at the edge of the solar system. Kilometer size bodies such as this have been predicted to exist for over seven decades, but this is the first time one has been discovered.

Dark energy gets stronger over time suggests new evidence

Dark energy gets stronger over time suggests new evidence

Astronomers have used X-ray data from the NASA Chandra X-Ray Observatory along with data from the ESA XMM-Newton combined with UV data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey to gather new evidence that could make astronomers re-evaluate their understanding of the universe. The data gathered lends proof that an invisible force called dark energy may be getting stronger over time. Before the new data, dark energy was thought to be constant over time.

Gazoo Racing’s restored ’60s Toyota racing car is ready to hit the track

Gazoo Racing is normally building modern racing cars or out racing. It built a racing car recently that is far from modern, and looks a bit odd but is totally awesome. The vehicle is a restoration of a classic Toyota racing car that won the very first Suzuka 500km race in the mid-60s.

‘Metallic wood’ is as strong as titanium, but much lighter

‘Metallic wood’ is as strong as titanium, but much lighter

A group of researchers from Penn University, the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, and the University of Cambridge have made a breakthrough with a new material that is very strong, yet very light. The material is a sheet of nickel with nanoscale pores that make it as strong as titanium, but four to five times lighter. The material has nanoscale pores on its surface that are made using a self-assembly process making the porous metal similar to natural materials like wood.

NASA attempts to force Opportunity rover to phone home

NASA attempts to force Opportunity rover to phone home

Engineers from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California have started transmission a new set of commands to the Opportunity rover to try and get the rover to phone home. NASA promised that it would reassess the situation for the rover this month in October of last year, and is making good on that promise. Opportunity stopped communicating with Earth on June 10, 2018, as a massive dust storm blanketed the Red Planet.

Hubble’s deepest space image ever was three years in the making

The Hubble space telescope has been in space for many years now. Of late it has had some challenges, including one that left its Wide Field Camera 3 non-functional for a while. Hubble is back at work, and scientists from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias have shared a new image that took three years to produce. The photo is the deepest image of the Universe ever taken from space.
