Get the New Space Revolution App: A report on the potential science value of a lander on the surface of Jupiter’s icy moon Europa has been delivered to NASA, and the agency is now engaging the broader science community to open a discussion about its findings. In early 2016, in response to a congressional … Continue reading Science Report on Europa Lander Concept
Get the New Space Revolution App: A team of researchers has compiled a special catalog to help astronomers figure out the true distances to tens of thousands of galaxies beyond our own Milky Way. The catalog, called NED-D, is a critical resource, not only for studying these galaxies but also for determining the … Continue reading How Far Away is That Galaxy?
Get the New Space Revolution App: A team led by astronomer Margot Brouwer (Leiden Observatory, The Netherlands) has tested the new theory of theoretical physicist Erik Verlinde (University of Amsterdam) for the first time through the lensing effect of gravity. Brouwer and her team measured the distribution of gravity around more than 33,000 galaxies to … Continue reading Verlinde’s new theory of gravity passes first test
