TESS at NASA: The Planets It Has Found and Could Find For many years, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has been looking for new exoplanets. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is responsible for a number of the space agency’s discoveries. Because of its mission to find more exoplanets in the universe, TESS has been dubbed the “planet hunter” or “exoplanet hunter” since its launch into space. The satellite has been successful thus far, and in this Tech Times article, we will discuss its discoveries. TESS is a NASA mission. Let us first define what TESS is before…

Rare sighting of a huge ‘phantom jellyfish’ with 33-foot-long’mouth-arms’ that devour animals. While operating a remote submarine in the deep waters of Monterey Bay in California, scientists uncovered a rare, massive sea monster that was first observed over a thousand years ago. After seeing it hiding in the deep waters of Monterey Bay, California, a group of scientists have confirmed the rare sighting of a massive phantom jellyfish with 33ft-long mouth-arms. The jellyfish was discovered at a depth of 3,200 feet as marine biologists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) were scouring the waters with a remote submarine.…

In a satisfying video, an ingrown hair the size of a golf club is dragged out of an infected pore. On TikTok, a video of an ingrown hair being pulled out has gone viral. It was compared to a “full golf club,” a “antenna,” or “chow mein noodles” by viewers. TikTok users have been both amused and terrified by footage of a never-ending ingrown hair being plucked from a pore. The tip of a short and innocent-looking hair is pulled by a pair of tweezers in the video submitted by user @tweezersandtreasures. The hair snaps off, and it appears like…

TESS from NASA aids in the discovery of a rocky exoplanet that orbits in 7.7 hours. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) data assisted in the identification of a rocky exoplanet circling a red dwarf star. GJ 367b is the name of the exoplanet, which is categorized as an ultra-short period planet because it cycles its star in just 7.7 hours. Scientists have yet to discover the origins of ultra-short period planets. Because of its objective to detect exoplanets, NASA’s TESS is commonly referred to as an exoplanet hunter. TESS was launched in 2018…

The Hubble Space Telescope’s Awe-Inspiring Photos Are Taken With These Cameras. In its 31 years of service, the Hubble Space Telescope has captured some of the most breathtaking images of planets, nebulas, and more. But have you ever pondered how the Hubble Space Telescope captures images? The Hubble Space Telescope contains a couple of instruments that enable it make observations and take beautiful photographs of space objects. When it comes to capturing pictures, the space telescope enlists the help of its camera systems to capture the exact image of the subject it is studying. Hubble Space Telescope was launched in…

Experts believe an unique gene causes profuse hair growth in real-life “werwolves.” Excessive hair growth and low self-esteem can be symptoms of ‘werewolf syndrome.’ Although the exact origin is unknown, specialists assume it has something to do with genetics. According to experts, a specific mutation that promotes excessive hair growth can cause people to look like werewolves. Werewolf syndrome is another name for the illness, which is extremely unusual. In 2011, Chinese and American researchers discovered that the bizarre disease could be caused by an unique genetic mutation. It’s a challenging issue to deal with because it can lead to…

Is it Possible to Block the Sun? | Amazon Cloud Computing to Aid Scientists in ‘Solar Radiation Management’ The researchers will use Amazon cloud computing to aid them in a strange climate experiment with a catch: they’ll be running climate models to lower the sun. Supercomputers are typically used by scientists to develop models. This time, the IT behemoth will assist the non-profit SilverLining in its quest to better understand solar radiation management. Amazon Web Services is apparently on its way to help scientists identify a viable method to dull the sun, according to Gizmodo’s latest story. In the coming…

The Hubble Space Telescope’s Awe-Inspiring Photos are Captured by These Cameras. The Hubble Space Telescope’s photographs of galaxies are among its most popular subjects. The spiral galaxy NGC 5037 and NGC 2442, also known as the Meathook galaxy, are two of the galaxies that Hubble has photographed. Throughout the years, the Hubble has taken photographs of nebulae. The Orion Nebula, Southern Crab Nebula, and Veil Nebula are examples of nebulae that have appeared in images captured by the space telescope. Brinkwire News: IN PHOTOS: Hubble’s Most Colorful Photos: Nebulae, Supernovas, and More Tech Times owns the rights to this article.…

How You Can Help NASA Build a Nuclear Reactor on the Moon The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Idaho National Laboratory of the Department of Energy are teaming up to build a nuclear reactor on the moon. The public is invited to submit proposals for the nuclear reactor. Proposals are due on February 19, 2022. The nuclear reactor has also been given guidelines, including the ideal weight, size, and type. For the first time in history, NASA is preparing for its Artemis Program, which aims to return humans to the moon and then to Mars. NASA is…

Boffs risk a mega eruption by drilling a “tunnel to Hell” to build the world’s first volcano lab. Thanks to an ambitious new project that aims to drill a giant tunnel deep into the center of a volcano, we may be able to travel to the center of the Earth for the first time. Scientists have warned that a daring project to drill a tunnel into the heart of an active volcano could result in a massive eruption. An international team of researchers plans to dig a hole 1.2 miles deep into the Krafla volcano’s molten rock in northeastern Iceland.…
