I just realized that KidzNet does not have a space group, so I have started it. Enjoy!
A Dyson Sphere is something that our descendants may think of doing in the future to meet their energy needs. The idea behind it is to completely enclose a star to capture all of its energy. At this point it is just science fiction, but it may be possible to actually build one if you […]
It was mind-boggling. The color television itself had been a flat-out miracle when it began to dominate the scene a mere twenty years previous. And now, that technological wonder was about to trump itself. Because very soon, if all went according to plan, it would transmit pictures of an actual man on the actual moon! […]
How do you chose people to go to the moon? That’s what NASA had to figure out as they began selecting astronauts for the Gemini and Apollo projects. Above: Apollo 11’s crew. From left to right, Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. They’d have to be comfortable with danger. They’d need quick reactions […]
Have you ever wondered what the place known as Hell might really look like? Imagine a world that burns ceaselessly and eternally, with fires that burn forever. Sounds eerie yet cool, right? Finally, getting a glimpse of a world like that is not as far-fetched as we think anymore. For the first time, NASA astronomers […]
Have you ever wondered what’s at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy? Did you know that it’s a black hole? And for the first time, scientists have captured a direct image of the black hole, known as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), which is located at the center of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. […]
Did you know that Mars, commonly referred to as the Red Planet, also experiences quakes? They are called Marsquakes. On May 4, The NASA InSight lander (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations) detected the strongest marsquake ever recorded so far on the red planet. It was estimated to have hit a magnitude 5 on the 1,222nd […]
Wouldn’t it be amazing if there’s another place aside from Earth that could harbor life? Well, this idea might not be as far-fetched as we think. Scientists have recently discovered a promising place that may have water where life could exist: Jupiter’s moon Europa. A recent study published in Nature Communications proclaimed that Jupiter’s moon […]
Have you ever dreamed of becoming an astronaut and wondered what it’s like to visit outer space? Well, you’re not alone. Before, Barbie only dreamt of traveling to space, but it’s become a reality now. For the first time in history, Barbie went to space aboard the International Space Station (ISS) as part of the […]
Scientist have absolutely no idea whether aliens exist or not. Some predict they might be living zillions of miles from earth. Do you think they exist? If so, what do you think they look like? Please comment below!
Another astonishing breakthrough for astronomy has happened. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has spotted the farthest and one of the most ancient stars known in the galaxy. Astronomers nicknamed the detected star, Earendel, which was derived from the Old English word that means “morning star” or “rising light.” It was also named after a character whose […]
Hello, guys! Today we are taking about Voyager 2’s return and the New Horizons probe. Voyager 2 is a space probe used by NASA to explore Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. It was launched way back in 1977. Woo! Woo! Here is a pretend story of how I think a call between the Voyager space […]
By SpaceBee What are Stars? Stars are astrological objects, made of various gasses, like hydrogen or helium. Stars are held together by their own gravity. When stars die they supernova (Suddenly increasing their brightness due to an explosion, causing them to lose most of their mass). Stars often take millions of years to supernova. Many say a […]
A sky hook is made up of a cable and a weight, called a Tether. It is supposed to help spacecrafts go into orbit easily. Thus, helping planet to planet travel. It might decrease the traveling time between Earth and Mars from 9 months to 6, or even 3 months. It is supposed to spin […]
For the first time in history, a NASA spacecraft called the Parker Solar Probe successfully entered the corona, or the outermost part of the Sun’s atmosphere, hence “touching” the Sun. It is one of the monumental developments in solar science because it has always been one of the key goals of the Parker Solar Probe […]
