MOST RECENT

Researchers spent decades trying to solve “case of the missing baryons,” but it wouldn’t be until a recent effort involving clever cosmological modeling and some patient data compilation that the case could be closed once and for all.

On July 4th, 2012 scientists working with the LHC (large hadron collider) made the announcement that they have discovered the Higgs boson. They have observed the particle and concluded that it acted very similar to what they predicted, and how the Higgs boson should behave. However, some researchers label it as “higgslike” still remaining skeptical about the discovery.
Let’s break down what a Higgs boson is. The standard model depicts our universe as being made up of 12 particles, 6 quarks and 6 electrons. But along with that, the standard model also includes the forces; gravity, electromagnetic, strong and weak nuclear, and gravity. The standard model is actually really accurate, aside from the fact that it has problems fitting in gravity. Anyway! So, it is thought that each of these forces has a carrier particle, a boson, that acts upon matter. For instance, the electromagnetic field depends on the photon to transit an electromagnetic force.
So scientists started to think,
what of particles gained mass by passing through a field?
Photons would be able to slide through this field unaffected, while other particles would gain mass. In fact, it is believed that everything gets its mass from passing through this field, which governs the entire universe. This field would also have to have a carrier particle, and that carrier particle would be the Higgs boson. Or more commonly known as the god particle.

Much needed break from reality

This is LinkSpace's New Line 1 rocket, a two-stage rocket under development to launch microsats and nanosats, with a reusable first stage. It is to be a liquid-fuelled rocket (Kerosene+Liquid Oxygen), with a diameter of 1.8 m (5.9 ft), height of 20 m (66 ft). It would have a lift-off mass of 33 t (32 long tons; 36 short tons) and take-off thrust of 400 kN (90,000 lbf), allowing a payload of 200 kg (440 lb) to be lifted into a Sun synchronous orbit (SSO) of 249–550 km (155–342 mi) high.

The first stage would have four liquid engines, each producing 100 kN (22,000 lbf) of thrust. It is projected to have an initial launch cost of $4.5 million, dropping to $2.25 million using a reused first stage. As of the end of 2017, the main rocket engine has been tested over 200 times, and first launch is planned for 2020.

On Sunday 23rd at 3:45AM Morrocan time, the world witness the Autumn equinox in the north hemisphere while our friends in the southern prepare for spring and summer to start. Basically day and night are of equal length and sun rays are perpendicular to earth as in the picture.
يوم الاحد على الساعة 3:45صباحاً توقيت المغرب ،سيكون الاعتدال الخريفي وهو اعتدال يحصل عادة إما يوم 20، 21، 22 سبتمبر أو 23 سبتمبر وتكون الشمس في هذا اليوم منطبقة تماما على خط الاستواء قادمة من نصفها الشمالي الذي يضم أوروبا وآسيا وأمريكا الشمالية والقطب الشمالي نحو النصف الجنوبي من الأرض والذي يضم أستراليا ونصف أفريقيا وأمريكا الجنوبية وبعضا من شبه القارة الهندية. في هذا اليوم يكون طول النهار و الليل متساويان. وتكون في ذالك الوقت اشعة الشمس متعامدة؜ على الارض كما تبين الصورة..

One year ago this month, NASA's Cassini Mission to Saturn ended its epic exploration of that planet with a planned dive into the planet’s atmosphere–sending back new science to the last second. The spacecraft may be gone, but the science continues. Here's 10 things to know: https://nasa.tumblr.com/post/178189358669/10-things-why-cassini-mattered

Astrophysicist Brant Robertson, an associate professor of astronomy and astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz, uses supercomputers to study galactic outflows, fast-moving winds of hot gas driven out of galaxies. This image is from a simulation of the complex astrophysical processes in such a galactic outflow.⠀
