NASA makes top news yet again, this time it’s a ‘wind-bot’

Engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, are taking a shot at a probability in which they can make a wind-bot; an automated test, which can stay above water in a planet’s environment for quite a while. The wind-bot will demonstrate greatly gainful for gas titans like Jupiter and Saturn. NASA has been […]

It is almost impractical to beat NASA in the space race. Not only is it the only agency to have ever reached every planet in the solar system, it’s now introducing windbots or Wind-Powered Robots, to explore Jupiter and other planets. The vehicles will maneuver through turbulent and dense gases that these planets harbor – […]

First they discovered Jupiter’s twin, now NASA has discovered Earth’s doppleganger titled ‘Kepler-452b’. Located in the constellation Cygnus, about 1,400 light years away, it is estimated to be about 60% larger in diameter than Earth. Scientists have yet to determine its mass and composition, although previous research of similar-sized planets insinuates its most likely to […]
