What To Expect Upon Super Blue Blood Moon's Arrival

Nature can be quite the treat. The wonderful blue skies and the almighty sun just breaking through the atmosphere is a godly divine. The skies have always been a mystery to us, although we put lots of effort, time and money towards finding out what lives in the great unknown. We believe that no matter how much time we spend searching through space, that we will always have more to find out and discover. January sky watchers are in for a rare treat: a Blue Moon, a total lunar eclipse and a "<a href=" https://rumble.com/v4aznt-what-is-a-super-blue-moon-eclipse.html " target="_blank">supermoon</a>" all in the same month. A Blue Moon is when two full moons happen in the same calendar month; lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth's shadow; and "supermoons" happen when the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth in a single orbit — coincides with a full moon. In this case, the "supermoon" also happens to be the day of the lunar eclipse. The first full moon of January occurred on the night of Jan. 1 or the morning of Jan. 2, depending on your location. The second full moon and the lunar eclipse will occur on the night of Jan. 31 or the morning of Feb. 1. And the "supermoon" will take place on the night of Jan. 30, which is technically one day before the moon reaches peak fullness, but even NASA is willing to call the event a "supermoon" nonetheless.

NASA Goes Out On A Hunt Mission For Aliens1m14s

NASA Goes Out On A Hunt Mission For Aliens

Footage of NASA's TESS - Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite is on its two year mission. A NASA mission, set to launch by June will continue to try to answer the question “Are we alone?”. TESS short for Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite is designed to look for planets beyond our solar system. Over two years, it will scan the entire sky using four cameras created by MIT and monitor 200,000 + stars for dips in brightness, which would indicate a planet passing in front of the star.TESS is expected to identify over 2,000 exoplanets hundreds of which could be Earth-sized. The data will then allow other missions to further explore which planets could support life. The principal goal of the TESS mission is to detect small planets with bright host stars in the solar neighborhood, so that detailed characterizations of the planets and their atmospheres can be performed. ESS will monitor the brightness of more than 200,000 stars during a two year mission, searching for temporary drops in brightness caused by planetary transits. Transits occur when a planet's orbit carries it directly in front of its parent star as viewed from Earth. TESS is expected to catalog more than 1,500 transiting exoplanet candidates, including a sample of ∼500 Earth-sized and ‘Super Earth’ planets, with radii less than twice that of the Earth. TESS will detect small rock-and-ice planets orbiting a diverse range of stellar types and covering a wide span of orbital periods, including rocky worlds in the habitable zones of their host stars.

NASA's simulated flight takes you right into Jupiter's Great Red Spot

This animation takes the viewer on a simulated flight into, and then out of, Jupiter’s upper atmosphere at the location of the Great Red Spot. It was created by combining an image from the JunoCam imager on NASA's Juno spacecraft with a computer-generated animation. The perspective begins about 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) above the cloud tops of the planet's southern hemisphere. The bar at far left indicates altitude during the quick descent; a second gauge next to that depicts the dramatic increase in temperature that occurs as the perspective dives deeper down. The clouds turn crimson as the perspective passes through the Great Red Spot. Finally, the view ascends out of the spot. Credit: NASA

NASA Created An Airless Chainmail Tire That Transforms Shape18s

NASA Created An Airless Chainmail Tire That Transforms Shape

Stretch a slinky toy too far, and eventually the metal coil will be warped so much it won’t be able to return to its original spring shape. That’s a problem also faced by the metal spring tires designed to roll across our Moon, and other planets our rovers are exploring. Hopefully NASA has created an alternative tire, made from titanium, that can tackle any terrain and always return to its original tire shape! NASA "reinvented" the wheel with this incredible airless chainmail tire intended to withstand the harsh terrains of a "Martian or lunar environment." This tire is capable of returning to its original shape after deforming all the way down to the axle. NASA Glenn Research Center has just reinvented the wheel, introducing a new tire that can get back to its original shape after having undergone deformation. This invention was perfected thanks to a shape memory alloy based on nickel-titanium. Nasa will use these shape shifting chainmail tires on future rovers to survive the punishing terrains on alien planets. Regardless of how many rocks it rolls over, this super elastic tire will return to its previous shape like nothing happened. Originally created for future Mars missions, NASA researchers believe that this technology has the potential to someday revolutionize earth tires. Whether it's on Earth or on Mars, exploration of any terrain requires mobility which means good tires. In order to avoid flat tire during explorations of alien planets, Nasa has developed this chainmail tire. Its innovative design is made out of an alloy that remembers its original shape after it has rolled over something, removing the risk of dents. How neat! Credit to 'NASA Glenn Research Center'.

First Interstellar Asteroid Wows Scientists3m16s

First Interstellar Asteroid Wows Scientists

Scientists were surprised and delighted to detect --for the first time-- an interstellar asteroid passing through our solar system. Additional observations brought more surprises: the object is cigar-shaped with a somewhat reddish hue. The asteroid, named 'Oumuamua by its discoverers, is up to one-quarter mile (400 meters) long and highly-elongated—perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide. That is unlike any asteroid or comet observed in our solar system to date, and may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed.

NASA Releases Incredible Visual Simulating 2017's Hurricanes2m12s

NASA Releases Incredible Visual Simulating 2017's Hurricanes

You can see the atmosphere by tracking what the wind carries. Tiny particles known as aerosols are carried by the air around the globe, such as smoke, dust, and sea salt which are transported by the air across the globe, making visible weather patterns and other normally invisible physical processes. This visualization uses data from NASA satellites, combined with mathematical models in a computer simulation allow scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season . One of the most noticeable things about the simulation is how far the particles can travel. For example, smoke from fires in the Pacific Northwest gets caught in a weather pattern and pulled all the way across the US and over to Europe. The visualization also shows dust from the Sahara blow into the Gulf of Mexico. To understand the impacts of aerosols, scientists need to study the process as a global system. During the hurricane season in 2017, tropical storms and hurricanes were visible in the visualization because of the sea salt that is captured by the storms. Strong winds at the surface lift the sea salt into the atmosphere and the particles are incorporated into the storm. Computer simulations using NASA's Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS), a family of mathematical models, allow researchers to see how different processes fit together and evolve as a system. Combined with data from NASA 's Earth observing satellites, the supercomputer simulations enhance scientific understanding of specific chemical, physical and biological processes.

Fireball Streaking Across Phoenix Lights Up The Sky29s

Fireball Streaking Across Phoenix Lights Up The Sky

The city government of Phoenix caught something rather extraterrestrial on its city camera which turned the night sky into daylight. A mysterious bright flash tore across the Phoenix sky sparking fresh fears of UFOs and alien invaders. Watch what the Phoenix City Cam captured on November 14th, 2017 at 8:30pm. Definitely a meteor? Astronomers say that this fireball was a tiny chunk of space rock burning up in our atmosphere. The remarkable object was spotted by numerous people in the area, with reports streaming in from Arizona and the surrounding states, including California, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico. Something brilliant flew across the Phoenix sky and was captured on camera. The stunning video, captured with a Nest security camera, shows the moment an object appears over the city. At first appears a tiny orb in the night sky, before quickly blossoming to become a massive flash that illuminates the clouds . Astronomers say the bright light that streaked across the night sky Tuesday was "almost certainly" a meteor. A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from an object, such as a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its passage through the atmosphere to reach the surface of Earth or another planet. When the object enters the atmosphere, various factors like friction, pressure, and chemical interactions with the atmospheric gases cause it to heat up and radiate that energy. It then becomes a meteor and forms a fireball, also known as a shooting star or falling star.

Super Zoom Captures Incredible Details On The Moon's Surface1m25s

Super Zoom Captures Incredible Details On The Moon's Surface

Ah, the Moon. The only natural satellite our Earth has and the subject of great controversy. The Moon is in a synchronous rotation with our planet, which means the same side is always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969. The dark side of the Moon has been known to spark lots of controversial topics, because we can never see it. Could aliens set up base there? Or is it just dark and desolate? The Moon landing has also been subjected to divided opinions, and there are lots of people out there that believe that the landing never occurred and everything was filmed in a movie studio. Scientists, of course, don't agree with this because, well, it's just not true. Then there are the "flat earthers" that think the Moon is just an illusion, much like the rest of the universe, but this beautiful celestial body is real and it is very interesting to study. We can see the Moon with our bare eye, but if we want to take a closer look we have to use some equipment. In this case, the man filming the Moon is using the super zoom of a Nikon P900, and we have to admit, it captures the Moon's beauty in a magnificent way.

Extreme closeup of the moon is slightly disturbing

For us mere mortals, the moon is just a round of cheese that glows super bright in the night sky (and sometimes during dusk hours). But technology goes forward and right now, if you have the cash, you can purchase a super awesome digital camera that can pass over the 239,000 miles between us and the Moon, so that you can take a selfie with it! Telescopes are so overrated. Nikon just released its COOLPIX P900 camera with a zoom so powerful, you can see craters on the moon's surface . Let us remind you that the moon is close to 239,000 miles from Earth. You can see the actual holes on the moon's surface where it's been hit by asteroids and comets thanks to the cameras 83x zoom. It's so powerful you can even watch the moon move across the sky as Earth rotates. The second most awesome feature about that camera is that image is surprisingly stable for such an extreme zoom. If you don’t feel uncomfortable enough just yet, how about checking out this clip of the Moon zoomed in and passing in front of super tiny Saturn . The clip has been recorded just as the Moon passes right in front of the ringed planet, eventually covering the sight of it! So cool!

SpaceX Unveils Cheap Travel Anywhere On Earth Within An Hour1m57s

SpaceX Unveils Cheap Travel Anywhere On Earth Within An Hour

While unveiling recent plans for Moon and Mars travel, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk ended his showcase talk with more promising news. Using the same interplanetary rocket system for long-distance travel on Earth - meaning you could theatrically travel to any city within an hour! The BFR, as it’s called, which is variously said to stand for either Big Falcon Rocket or Big F*cking Rocket, would travel at speeds approaching 17,000 mph. In theory, the rocket could reach any destination on Earth within an hour. Most trips would take less than half an hour, the head of Tesla and SpaceX said during his presentation at the International Astronautical Congress in Australia. “Cost per seat should be about the same as full fare economy in an aircraft,” Musk wrote on Instagram after the event. “Forgot to mention that.” That being said, this means that a trip from New York to Los Angeles, which currently takes between 5 and 6 hours, would be reduced to 25 minutes. The 15-hour flight from New York to Shanghai would take just 39 minutes. The clip you see here is an animation released by SpaceX, showing the rockets leaving from and arriving on offshore platforms just outside of each city. Credit to 'SpaceX'.

Super Powerful Camera Makes Saturn Visible For A Naked Eye3m10s

Super Powerful Camera Makes Saturn Visible For A Naked Eye

There are only a select few times when we can actually view the planet Saturn from Earth. This rare occurrence is one that millions of people all around the world gather to see. With the naked eye, the planet looks similar to the other stars in the night sky from Earth. Because of this, it can be difficult to determine exactly where Saturn is or which of the glowing orbs it is. This is when the news and the Internet become imperative to experiencing the spectacle. There are sites that can be visited that will tell a viewer exactly when to look for Saturn and where to look for it. Be sure, though, that you are paying attention to what particular time zone you are in when trying to find out the time and place to look for Saturn. You will also need to know what part of the sky to examine. This will all depend on where you are in the world at the moment. Humans have long been fascinated with space and all of the wondrous sites present in the beautiful night sky each and every night. Since the astrological chartings that were made hundreds of years ago, people have looked up at the black depth above our planet and wondered and dreamed about what could be “out there.” Seeing another planet in the sky is an event that everyone should experience at some point in their lifetime. This particular video is interesting because it shows the viewer exactly what this planet will look like when trying to find it in the sky at night from Earth. The video is a little different and may seem a little strange at first. This is because the entire video consists of what looks to be just a floating orb of light on a black screen. However, graphics are not what should be the focus here. What is interesting and “cool” is the fact that it is not a star; it is a planet. When viewers watch this video, they should try to actively remember and think about the fact that this little floating orb of light on their computer screens is an actual planet, and it is millions and millions of miles away. It is shocking to imagine being able to actually visually see something with your own eyes that is thousands or millions of miles away from where you are. It is even more shocking when you can see something that far away without any help of a telescope or other form of technology. Obviously, the viewing experience is going to be better and more detailed with a telescope, but it is interesting either way. The person who recorded the video zooms in and out from the planet Saturn so that viewers can see what it looks like with the naked eye. Zooming in allows us to see what the planet looks like in just a little bit more detail. Don’t forget to subscribe to Rumble and join the community!

What The Betelgeuse Explosion Would Look Like From Earth22s

What The Betelgeuse Explosion Would Look Like From Earth

Orion, the massive star Betelgeuse is dying. It reached the end of its life and currently in the terminal throes of shedding vast bubbles of gas into space. Betelgeuse lies some 430 light-years from Earth. Note that determining distances, especially to red supergiant stars, is an unnerving problem in Astronomy. Estimates vary and are often revised, with some as high as 650 light-years, yet it’s already one of the brightest stars in Earth’s sky. The reason is that Betelgeuse is a supergiant star. However, such brilliance comes at a price. Betelgeuse is one of the most famous stars in the sky because it’s due to explode someday. Its enormous energy requires that the fuel be expended quickly, and in fact Betelgeuse is now near the end of its lifetime. In astronomical terms, someday soon it will run out of fuel, collapse under its own weight, and then rebound in a spectacular supernova explosion. When this happens, Betelgeuse will brighten enormously for a few weeks or months, perhaps as bright as the full moon and visible in broad daylight. When will it happen? Probably not in our lifetimes. But, in fact, no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.

Betelgeuse - The 'Killer' Star That Could Become Supernova1m51s

Betelgeuse - The 'Killer' Star That Could Become Supernova

At first glance, Betelgeuse may look like a random orange blob but in fact it is an image that reveals one of the biggest stars ever seen. Betelgeuse, also known as a ‘killer star’, is one of the largest stars known to astronomers with a radius about 1,400 times larger than that of the Sun. The Betelgeuse star is not only famous for its size and brightness but because it is only about 600 light-years away in the constellation of Orion (The Hunter)- a bright winter constellation in the Northern Hemisphere. Betelgeuse is so vast — its size would extend beyond Jupiter's orbit if it were placed in the sun's position in the solar system and is now near the end of its lifetime. It is just about eight million years old, but is already on the verge of becoming a supernova . This red supergiant burns brightly, causing it to have only a short life expectancy. It is shedding gas and dust at tremendous rates. When that happens, the resulting explosion will be visible from Earth, even in broad daylight. When astronomers say Betelgeuse is expected to explode soon, they mean shortly in astronomical terms: within a million years. But predicting exactly when it will turn into a supernova is difficult, however, as it depends on precise calculations of its mass as well as an understanding of what is going on inside the star. So, one is sure, the explosion won’t happen in our lifetime. But in fact no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.
