The Mars Pathfinder robotic Rover, Sojourner, was the first vehicle landed to explore another planet. That happened July 4th, 1997.

March 14th, 2016, the ExoMars […]
In science you should never say no. To anything. Period. Until it is proven wrong. Then you shout No! to the world. Technology development, now, may be a rather different story. Just take this. What would provoke NASA to give such an un-equivolent message about a particular mainstay of Sci-Fi-literature, the warp drive. One should […]

So – What if the satellite is even further away than the geostationary satellites? Why would you place satellites that far […]

The images of Pluto, captured by New Horizons, also were more surprising […]

This is not science. People with background in science, i.e. a degree in science, may work on the problem of […]
Recently, something interesting happened to me over on Google+. I uttered an opinion. Now, that in itself is not interesting, of course, because everybody does. What was interesting was that the opinion was not really an opinion at all: Earth is part of space. I am no social media king by any stretch as you […]
