    41 years after launch, Voyager 2 reaches interstellar space: NASA

    NASA's Voyager 2 creates history by becoming the second human-made object to reach the edge of our solar system. The spacecraft exited the protective bubble of particles and magnetic fields created by the Sun, confirms US space agency, NASA.

    NASA find water locked inside asteroid Bennu: Details inside

    NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission confirms that there is water locked inside the asteroid Bennu. The mission was launched in September 2016 to collect sample from the asteroid, which is a remnant from early in the formation of the solar system.

    Christmas Comet, the brightest comet of the year to come close on Dec 16

    Its Christmas months and besides celebration on the earth, the festivity will take place on the galaxy too. Just, a few days before the Christmas, a comet will be making a close pass of Earth on December 16. Tagged as 'Christmas Comet', it is believed to be the brightest comet of the year.

    NASA's InSight lander 'hears' Martian wind

    NASA's InSight lander, which touched down on Mars on November 26, has provided the first ever "sounds" of Martian wind on the Red Planet, the NASA said.InSight sensors captured a haunting low rumble caused by vibrations from the wind, estimated to be blowing between 10 to 15 mph (5 to 7 metres a second) on December 1, from northwest to southeast, NASA said on Friday. Citing NASA, Xinhua news agency reported the winds were consistent with the direction of dust devil streaks in the landing area, which were observed from orbit. "Capturing this audio was an unplanned treat," said Bruce Banerdt, InSight principal investigator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "But one of the things our mission is dedicated to is measuring motion on Mars, and naturally that includes motion caused by sound waves." According to NASA, two very sensitive sensors on the spacecraft detected these wind vibrations: an air pressure sensor inside the lander and a seismometer sitting on the lander's deck, awaiting deployment by InSight's robotic arm. The two instruments recorded the wind noise in different ways. The air pressure sensor, which will collect meteorological data, recorded these air vibrations directly. The seismometer recorded lander vibrations caused by the wind moving over the spacecraft's solar panels, which are each 7 feet (2.2 metres) in diameter and stick out from the sides of the lander like a giant pair of ears. This is the only phase of the mission during which the seismometer, called the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS), will be capable of detecting vibrations generated directly by the lander, said NASA. In a few weeks, it will be placed on the Martian surface by InSight's robotic arm, then covered by a domed shield to protect it from wind and temperature changes. It will detect the lander's movement through the Martian surface, said NASA. SEIS is recording vibrational data that scientists later will be able to use to cancel out noise from the lander when SEIS is on the surface, allowing them to detect better actual marsquakes. InSight landed safely at Elysium Planitia on Mars on November 26, kicking off a two-year mission to explore the deep interior of the Red Planet.
