NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has discovered water vapor on Jupiter’s ocean moon Ganymede for the first time

Evidence of water vapor in the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Ganymede, has been recorded for the first time. Astronomers found the water vapor using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system.

NASA is giving SpaceX $178 million to launch its mission to a Jupiter moon that could harbor alien life

LoadingSomething is loading. NASA has chosen SpaceX to launch its next alien-hunting mission to a Jupiter moon.The mission, called Europa Clipper, is designed to fly past Jupiter's moon Europa 45 times, getting as close as 16 miles above its surface. Scientists believe the moon conceals a global ocean beneath its icy crust, and alien life could thrive deep within it.NASA announced Friday that it set a date for the mission and awarded the $...

Russia wants to install a nuclear power plant on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

China and Russia are making a big splash in space exploration, particularly Mars research. The Asian giant, in fact, already has an explorer vehicle traveling the Martian surface. Now, the Russians have expressed their desire to build a nuclear power plant on the planet as a way to ensure the presence of humans there. This innovative project has been proposed by a subsidiary of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. According to the state news agency Sputnik, the nuclear power plant would be destined to power a future Russian base on the Red Planet. Those behind this idea hope to use the same technology destined for Zeus, an interplanetary space tug project, to also power the nuclear reactor on the Martian surface. JPL-Caltech / NASARussia's Arsenals Design Bureau wants to use the tugboa...

According to study, life could exist in the clouds of Jupiter | Digital Trends Spanish

An international team of scientists published a study in Nature Astrology on the activity of the water in the clouds of Venus. As a main conclusion, the research indicates that the effective concentration of water molecules in the clouds of Venus is too small to support life like that known on Earth. "We have not found that the water level is slightly below what the most extreme organisms need, but that it is 100 times lower than it would be necessary," explained John E. Hallsworth, leader of the study. The surprise is on the account of Jupiter, who showed that its clouds have a high enough water concentration and a suitable temperature for, in theory, Extremophilic organisms to survive. "I am not suggesting that there is microbial life on Jupiter because it would have to have other req...

Surprising find about Europa, Jupiter’s moon | Digital Trends Spanish

A study carried out by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory claims that Jupiter's moon Europa can glow in the dark. The experiments were able to show that the type of ice that covers the moon's surface glows under radiation, which could help determine the composition of its frozen plains and underground oceans. The scientists warned that as Europa orbits Jupiter, it receives a continuous charge of electrons and other particles from the planet, which is "bathed" in high-energy radiation. These particles hitting its surface would also allow the moon to glow in the dark. “If you imagine that you are standing in Europe and you look at the glow under your feet, the glow would be similar to if you were standing outside in the light of a full moon and then looking at the ground,” explains Mur...

NASA detects “elves” and “goblins” in the atmosphere of Jupiter | Digital Trends Spanish

New results from NASA's Juno mission suggest the presence of "goblins" or "elves" of light in Jupiter's upper atmosphere. They would not actually be mythological creatures, but rather Transient Light Events (TLE), unpredictable flashes of bright light that are extremely brief. According to the space agency itself, this would be the first time that these phenomena have been observed on another planet. These "goblins", also named after a mischievous character in English folklore, are transient light events caused by lightning discharges from electrical storms. On Earth, they occur up to 60 miles above intense and high thunderstorms and are capable of illuminating a vast region of the sky, but only last for a few milliseconds. The "elves", meanwhile, owe their name to the acronym Elve...

This asteroid “is worth” much more than the entire world economy | Digital Trends Spanish

Psyche is a strange asteroid that is 370 million kilometers from Earth. It is classified as one of the most massive in the main asteroid belt of the Solar System, which orbits between Mars and Jupiter. It is about 226 kilometers wide and unlike most asteroids, which are icy and rocky, Psyche appears to be metallic. Being so dense and metallic, it is thought that Psyche could be the leftover core of a planet that failed during its formation, which is known as a protoplanet. Thanks to observations made using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have been able to get a clearer image of the asteroid. Hubble. "We have seen meteorites that are mostly metal, but Psyche could be unique in that it could be an asteroid that is entirely made of iron and nickel," explains researcher Tracy ...

They record the volcanic impact of a moon of Jupiter | Digital Trends Spanish

Images obtained by the Atacama Large Millimeter / submillimeter Array (ALMA) show for the first time the effect of volcanic activity on the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Io. With 400 active volcanoes that expel sulfur gases, Io is the most volcanically active moon in our Solar System. Precisely, these gases stain it yellow, white, orange and red when they freeze on its surface. The atmosphere of Io can give us important information about the volcanic activity of this unique satellite, as well as its interior and everything that happens under its crust. In order to distinguish the processes that give rise to Io's atmosphere, a group of astronomers used ALMA to obtain images of the satellite as it passed inside and outside of Jupiter's shadow. "As it passes through Jupiter's shadow an...
