  • Spencer Welling calls this award-winning Milky Way image Chamber of Light. He captured it in the U.S. state of Utah. Spencer wrote, โ€œThe deserts of the Southwest abound with places to capture the night sky. Itโ€™s easy to overlook some of the more obscure hidden gems hovering under the radar. This location is situated below a remote set of cliffs in Grand Staircase-Escalante. This natural stone chamber provides some of the clearest, most pristine views of the Milky Way framed by the copper-colored opening of the cavern.โ€

    Hello Team. Iโ€™ve had a request from a member to join the two groups that I moderate. On clicking on their account, it says they are โ€œsuspendedโ€ Firstly, I donโ€™t know why they were suspended to make any decision, and secondly, is it right that a suspended member is still active and can apply to join groups? Thank you.

    @ScoopSupport can you shed some light on this problem please? Iโ€™ve been in Devon since last Sunday 16th May and only returned an hour ago. I havenโ€™t logged into Scooploop in that time whilst away and yet when I logged in a while ago I noticed the banner photo of my group โ€œThe Oasisโ€ has disappeared! How can this happen? This post is aimed at Scooploop Tech so there is no need for any input from others. Thank you.

  • Was advertised with the slogan, โ€œIn Space, no one can hear you screamโ€ but it didnโ€™t mention anything about humming. Instruments aboard NASAโ€™s Voyager 1 spacecraft, which nine years ago exited our solar systemโ€™s outer reaches, have detected a faint monotonous hum caused by the constant vibrations of the small amounts of gas found in the near-emptiness of interstellar space, scientists said. It essentially represents the background noise present in the vast expanse between star systems. These vibrations, called persistent plasma waves, were identified at radio frequencies in a narrow bandwidth during a three-year period as Voyager 1 traverses interstellar space. โ€œThe persistent plasma waves that weโ€™ve just discovered are far too weak to actually hear with the human ear. If we could hear it, it would sound like a single steady note, playing constantly but changing very slightly over time,โ€ said Stella Koch Ocker, a Cornell University doctoral student in astronomy and lead author of the study published this week in the journal Nature Astronomy. The Voyager 1 spacecraft, launched in September 1977, is currently located about 14.1 billion miles (22.7 billion km) from Earth - roughly 152 times the distance between our planet and the sun - and is still obtaining and transmitting data. Having decades ago visited the huge planets Jupiter and Saturn, Voyager 1 is now providing insight into interstellar space. Courtesy of NASA, Reuters and JPL

  • Has this woman (in photograph in front of artists concept of the fusion thruster) just invented the rocket that will take us to Mars? The unique design of the plasma thruster could enable spacecraft to travel to distant planets much faster than they can now. Dr Fatima Ebrahimi has invented a new fusion rocket thruster concept which could power humans to Mars and beyond. The physicist who works for the US Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) designed the rocket which will use magnetic fields to shoot plasma particles - electrically charged gas - into the vacuum of space. According to Newton's second and third laws of motion, the conservation of momentum would mean the rocket was propelled forwards - and at speeds 10 times faster than comparable devices. The invention could enable humans to travel to Mars While current space-proven plasma propulsion engines use electric fields to propel the particles, the new rocket design would accelerate them using magnetic reconnection. This process is found throughout the universe but is most observable to humanity on the surface of the sun. When magnetic field lines converge there, before separating and then reconnect again, they product an enormous amount of energy. A brilliant mind designing a brilliant concept.
