Jupiter may be even older than we thought

  Jupiter may be even older than we thought A new study from researchers at the University of Münster and Lawrence Livermore National Lab in California suggests that Jupiter may have begun forming within one million years of the very first inklings of the solar system. Previous studies suggested that Jupiter was one of our older neighbors, but they provided a generous estimate that it formed within 10 million years after the birth of the solar system. These studies were based on models, though, not data; instead of analyzing samples from Jupiter to estimate its age, these studies estimated the period during which the gases required to form a giant like Jupiter were prevalent.

  A recently-formed space nation is recruiting Earthlings to become citizens © Twitter/@AsgardiaSpace The first ever human space nation, Asgardia, was recently announced at a press conference in Hong Kong.

At the conference, Asgardia also revealed their plans to launch their first satellite, Asgardia-1, in autumn this year. They plan to build a space station in Earth orbit as well as on the Moon.

Dr Igor Ashurbeyli, who is leading the project, spoke a bit more about the satellite. “Asgardia-1 will contain data stored for free for up to 1.5 million Asgardians on board the satellite,” Dr Ashurbeyli also claims that that the “names and data will forever stay in the memory of the new space humanity, as they will be reinstalled on every new Asgardia satellite.”

Key Building Block of Life Found Around Young Sun-Like Stars

  Key Building Block of Life Found Around Young Sun-Like Stars Astronomers have discovered an important building block for life in the disk of dust and gas surrounding infant sun-like stars. The young, triple-star system IRAS 16293-2422 is located approximately 400 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Ophiuchus. The infant stars in this system have a similar mass to the sun, but are still in the early stages of formation. Researchers have detected a complex organic molecule called methyl isocyanate near the stars.

Igor Ashurbeyli, Asgardia’s founder, announced that the nation was now looking for its first 100,000 citizens , with applications being opened up to the public via the form on the official site. At the time of writing, over half a million Earthlings had joined this ambitious cause.

This new nation is doing its best to truly be unique by designing a unique flag, creating its own national anthem and constructing its own calendar, consisting of 13 months rather than 12. Not to mention that there is talk of Asgardia even having its own currency.

Nebulae In Space Are Incredibly Bright And Detailed In These NASA Photos

  Nebulae In Space Are Incredibly Bright And Detailed In These NASA Photos NASA's photos of nebulas in space are incredible and detailed, show how a nebula forms.Outer space is full of stunning views that the naked eye would never be able to process. Much of what goes on in space happens outside of the visible light spectrum so to our eyes, it wouldn’t look like much. But luckily NASA has developed sophisticated instruments to capture everything that the human eye can’t.
