NASA Extends Hubble Space Telescope Program And Streams Live Teleconference

As NASA promises to extend the science operations for its Hubble Space Telescope for an additional five years, tomorrow, they plan to not only provide a live stream of a major ground test at 10:05 a.m. EDT but will follow it up with a live media teleconference at 11 a.m. to discuss their initial assessment of the previous tests. NASA just confirmed a contract extension of $2.03 billion dollars, to cover the work necessary to continue the science program of the Hubble mission by the Space Telescope Science Institute until June 30th 2021. Hubble is expected to continue to provide valuable data...

Dark Thirty Radio – June 13th, 2016

Tonight On Dark Thirty Radio  Chances Of Past Civilizations Having Existed Just Got Higher The probabilistic argument used to arrive at an estimate of the number of active, communicative extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy was first described in 1960 by American astronomer and astrophysicist, Frank Drake, known as the Drake equation, was giving an new revision by two astronomers and the results are astounding. The University of Washington’s Woody Sullivan and the University of Rochester’s Adam Frank published their assessment in the May issue of Astrobiology and Frank is now in the process of a follow-up for the New York Times...

Dark Thirty Radio – June 10th, 2016

Tonight on Dark Thirty Radio NASA Is Going With “Space Dandruff” To Explain UFO’s Sightings Former NASA employee James Oberg says UFO sightings can all be explained by a phenomenon known as “space dandruff’. Oberg claims all sightings can be explained as ice crystals, insulation, debris and other tiny pieces of space stuff that were once on the spacecraft and are now floating in front of cameras and windows. Since they’re so tiny and moving between sunlight and shadows, they can’t be conclusively identified, but he is certain they’re “space dandruff.” Oberg says he’s not trying to say UFOs don’t exist, just...

The Mapping Of Jupiter

Astronomers have now been able to observe the wavelengths of radio waves coming through Jupiter’s atmosphere, allowing them to gather enough detail to map the ammonia flows that lay beneath. A  team, led by astronomer Imke de Pater from the University of California, Berkeley are working with the Very Large Array, radio telescope located in New Mexico to penetrate roughly 60 miles into the planet’s atmosphere. Team member Robert Sault, from the University of Melbourne in Australia explained “Jupiter’s rotation once every 10 hours usually blurs radio maps, because these maps take many hours to observe, but we have developed...
