NASA’s new planetary defence system faces field trials

NASA has announced that its first-ever asteroid deflection mission has progressed to the next design phase. The Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART, is as the name suggests, an asteroid deflection technique that is set to become a world-first planetary defence system. Using revolutionary technology known as kinetic impaction, the DART will strike asteroids in order to shift its orbit. Read More

LIGO and NASA detect gravitational waves for the third time

On January 4th 2017, the ground-based twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) facilities in Washington and Louisiana detected an event that transpired in our universe over three billion years ago. Yes, you read that right. The LIGO successfully detected the gravitational waves that were caused by the collision of two black holes billions of years before Earth became what it... Read More
