“Catastrophic Collisions” – NASA Warns About New 5G Satellite Constellation

Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge Waking Times Several private companies are planning to launch large, low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellite constellations. NASA, who generally doesn’t comment on these types of developments, recently published a stark warning for AST & Science, which intends to launch a massive constellation of hundreds of large 5G satellites. NASA engineer Samantha Fonder expressed concern about AST’s 5G mega constellation of satellites in a recently penned letter to FCC’s Marleen Dortch, about how the space agency worries its assets in orbit could experience a “catastrophic collision,” reported Ars Technica.…

Milky Way holds at least 300 MILLION habitable planets with liquid water on their surfaces – and the closest are just 20 light-years away, NASA claims

NASA used data from the now-defunct Kepler telescope to scan Milky Way  Found 50% of Sun-like stars likely have planets which host liquid water  This range of habitable worlds could be as low as 7% or as high as 75%  There are around 300 million planets that exist outside our Solar System but within the Milky Way which could potentially harbour life, according to NASA.

Nokia wins NASA contract to put a 4G network on the moon. Yes, really.

Soon, astronauts on moon missions won’t have any excuse for not answering their texts. NASA has awarded Nokia of America $14.1 million to deploy a cellular network on the moon. The freaking moon. The grant is part of $370 million worth of contracts signed under NASA’s “Tipping Point” selections, meant to advance research and development for space exploration.  Nokia’s plan is to build a 4G/LTE network, and eventually transition to 5G (just like the rest of us).

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft lands on asteroid in bid to collect samples

A robotic arm extended from NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft briefly contacted the rugged surface of asteroid Bennu Tuesday to gobble up pristine samples, a climactic moment in the $1 billion mission to bring asteroid material back to Earth in 2023. The daring touch and go landing was the first attempt by a U.S. spacecraft to collect a sample from an asteroid. Once the specimens are back on Earth, scientists hope to learn more about the origin and evolution of the solar system. Continue reading NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft lands on asteroid in…

NASA’S PERSEVERANCE ROVER WILL LOOK FOR ALIEN FOSSILS BY BEAMING X-RAYS AT MARS

The rover will scan for bacteria that can cause strange rock formations similar to those on Earth Nasa’s Perserverance rover will use x-rays to look for Martian fossils, powered by artificial intelligence. The space agency said that the rover will be equipped with ‘PIXL’ (Planetary Instrument for X-ray Lithochemistry), which is an instrument attached to the end of Perserverence’s two-meter long arm. When it detects an important sample the tool – about the size of a lunchbox – drill into the ground to collect them and place them on the surface of Mars for collection by a future…

End of the world: NASA’s doomsday plan for planet-destroying event exposed

NASA has a plan to save mankind as the end of the world becomes more than just a possibility, a scientist revealed in a sobering interview. First announced by the space agency in 2016, the Planetary Defence Coordination Office is part of NASA’s Planetary Science Division to plan against possible life-ending events. Their job is to catalogue and track Potentially Hazardous Objects (PHO) such as asteroids and comets. But the team is also running simulations should such a threat slip through unnoticed, to study the possibility of diverting a space rock, while also looking…

NASA Dropped New Images of Our Universe That Straight-Up Look Fake

The Chandra X-ray Observatory, the most powerful X-ray observatory ever built, has generated over 23 trillion bytes of data since it launched on July 23, 1999. From its highly elliptical orbit around Earth (the observatory makes it one-third of the way to the moon), Chandra has spotted some of the strangest, most charismatic and curious objects in the solar system … and beyond. By exploring the the hottest regions of our universe with X-ray vision, Chandra is helping scientists unravel some of the most pressing mysteries we face today: How did our universe begin?

NASA To Spark “Lunar Gold Rush” In Move To Break China’s Monopoly On Rare Earth Metals

Source: nworeport NASA wants to spark a “lunar gold rush” by paying companies to extract rare earth metals (REM) from the moon. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine recently tweeted that the space agency “is buying lunar soil from a commercial provider! It’s time to establish the regulatory certainty to extract and trade space resources.” The moon holds hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars of untapped resources, including fifteen lanthanides, as well as scandium and yttrium – used in modern electronics. There’s also an abundance of Helium-3, a very rare gas, with the potential to fuel clean…

NASA INVESTIGATING EARTH’S MYSTERIOUSLY WEAKENING MAGNETIC FIELD AMID CONCERNS OVER SATELLITES AND SPACECRAFT

‘Dent’ or anomaly is small but getting bigger, scientists warn Nasa is monitoring a “small but evolving dent” in the Earth’s magnetic field that could cause major problems for satellites and spacecraft. The Earth’s magnetic field wraps around our planet, bouncing away charged particles that come to us from the Sun. But there is an unexplained gap in it, where the magnetic field is weak, hovering over South America and the southern Atlantic Ocean.

Mars Is Pretty Clean. Her Job at NASA Is to Keep It That Way.

At the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Catharine A. Conley has a lofty job title: planetary protection officer. That conjures to mind shades-wearing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the “Men in Black” movies. Indeed, on her first day on the job, nine years ago, she was presented with a pair of sunglasses. But with no extraterrestrial invasions on the horizon, Dr. Conley’s job is not so much protecting Earth from aliens as protecting other planets from Earth. Continue reading Mars Is Pretty Clean.
