Scientists utilize Webb to quantify rapid jet stream in Jupiter’s atmosphere

Scientists have made a groundbreaking discovery at Jupiter’s equator using the James Webb Space Telescope. They have identified a previously unnoticed high-speed jet stream that will provide valuable insights into the interactions of Jupiter’s turbulent atmosphere. The discovery was made on July 27, 2022, when the telescope observed Jupiter’s lower stratosphere, measuring winds of up to 515 kilometers per hour. This jet stream, located 40 kilometers above the clouds, is approximately 4,800 kilometers wide, making it

Witness Saturn’s Opposition this Weekend

Saturn, the magnificent ringed planet, will be at its best position for the year on August 27th. Known as opposition, this is when Saturn is opposite to the Sun in the sky, with Earth lined up between them. During opposition, Saturn and other superior planets that orbit the Sun at a greater distance than Earth offer optimum visibility.

Saturn’s position in the northern sky has been gradually increasing since its opposition in 2018 and 2019

Restoration of Historic Boosters at Alabama Space Museum Includes Addition of NASA SLS Mockup in Rocket Park

Restoration of Historic Boosters at Alabama Space Museum Includes Addition of NASA SLS Mockup in Rocket Park

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center (USSRC) in Huntsville, Alabama has celebrated the expansion and reconfiguration of its Rocket Park. The park, which has been standing since 1965, will now feature a full-scale mockup of NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS) core stage pathfinder engine section, as well as restored historic boosters from the early years of the space program.

The restoration project was made possible thanks to a generous donation of $500,000 by Fred Luddy, the founder of cloud computing company ServiceNow. The historic rockets, including the U.S. Army Redstone, Jupiter, Jupiter-C, Juno II, and Mercury-Redstone boosters, were restored by Cosmos Aerospace of

NASA Detects Weak Carrier Signal from Voyager 2

NASA Detects Weak Carrier Signal from Voyager 2

NASA’s Deep Space Network has detected a weak carrier signal from the Voyager 2 probe, just days after losing contact with it. The loss of communication was due to erroneous commands that caused the spacecraft to veer slightly off course. However, this newly detected signal confirms that the probe is still operational and on its intended path. Currently, the signal is too weak to transmit data, but flight controllers plan to send new commands at a higher power level in an effort to reestablish full contact. If this
