China plans a kilometer-long spacecraft | Digital Trends Spanish

When it comes to building giant-sized spaceships, China has plans to match. Because the Asian country is investigating whether it is possible to make a 1-kilometer-long (0.6-mile) spacecraft. A ship of this size so far exists only in the world of science fiction or video games, but the Ministry of Science and Technology of China could make such a reality. Of course, this ship is not being built yet or anything, but an agency belonging to the ministry is in the process of studying the technical feasibility. In pursuit of the above, the Chinese agency is looking for scientists who are in charge of investigating new ways to design gigantic and light ships, so that it is easier to put them into orbit. And this initial study will be carried out in a period of five years. The specification...

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 was the descent of OSIRIS-REx on the asteroid Bennu | Digital Trends Spanish

It was a maneuver as singular as it was risky, which fortunately we were able to follow live on the internet. This Tuesday, October 20, NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft descended on the asteroid Bennu, which is currently more than 300 million kilometers from Earth. The mission was to collect samples of the asteroid, which may become a threat to Earth for the next century, according to astronomers. In fact, it is believed to have a one in 2,700 chance of hitting Earth during one of its approaches by the end of the next century. The collection was also intended to find more information about Bennu, which is considered a relic of the Solar System, and can yield data on the molecular precursors of life on our planet. For this reason, it was a transcendental mission which could be observed ...

Hakuto-R: the Japanese ship that will take vehicles to the Moon | Digital Trends Spanish

Japan is slated to take two rovers to the Moon by 2022 to begin their own space exploration. But the main feature is that they will be brought to the natural satellite by the spacecraft. Hakuto-R. The construction of this module is done by the startup iSpace, who says that “dWe will develop our own lander and rover to perform two missions, a lunar landing in 2022 and a lunar exploration in 2023. SpaceX's Falcon 9 will be used for launch in 2022 and 2023, respectively. ” This company tells how Hakuto-R originated: “HAKUTO” is the first team in Japan to participate in Google's first lunar exploration race, Google Lunar XPRIZE. In 2015, he received an intermediate career award, and was selected as a finalist team 5 in 2017, but was unable to transport for a month because he assumed...

Airbus will build the first spacecraft to bring cargo from Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

While much of the planet is preparing to observe the launch of the Perseverance rover to Mars on Thursday, July 30, the French Airbus is working on the construction of a spacecraft that will bring the first Martian rock samples to Earth. Once it reaches the red planet on February 18, 2021, the Perseverance will extract samples and leave them on the surface of Mars in small metal tubes. It is precisely these samples that the orbiter built by Airbus, called Earth Return Orbiter (ERO), will bring home, according to the website of the BBC. "I like to call the satellite to be built by Airbus 'the first interplanetary cargo ship.' Because that's what it will do. It is designed to carry cargo between Mars and Earth, "David Parker, director of human exploration and robotics a...
