Check 99217's Instagram While some experts think alien life may resemble robots, others think it will look more like a dark streak in a cloud. Seriously?
It’s a possibility we can’t overlook.
Sanjay Limaye, an atmospheric scientist from the University of Wisconsin, said in an interview in Astrobiology magazine that he believes that the mysterious dark streaks in the clouds over Venus, long observed but never explained, could be signs of life or even life forms themselves. He wants the proposed joint U.S.-Russian Venera-D Venus mission – scheduled for 2025 – to include an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that would sample the dark streaks for evidence of microbial life. Limaye is a member of the Venera-D science definition team so he’s in a position to influence the decision.
The current proposed purpose of the mission is to study why Venus’ atmosphere rotates so unusually fast over its surface. This will inherently include studying the dark streaks because they don’t mix together with the super-rotating atmosphere and they strangely absorb ultraviolet light. While the mission’s balloons will test the streaks for UV absorbers like iron chloride, Limaye is pitching his microbe idea.
I cannot say that there is microbial life in Venus’ clouds. But that doesn’t mean it’s not there either. The only way to learn is to go there and sample the atmosphere. Continued in comments 1427938812642122526_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram Prior to becoming a political statement, the word “rogue” was used as far back as the 1830s as a way to describe a wild elephant (generally a male) that had become separated from its herd and as a result was “behaving in an erratic or dangerous fashion.” The same expression is now being used in a new theory that the still-unproven-yet-much-talked-about Planet 9 (or Nine or X) is a wild “rogue” planet, separated from its own solar system, that has joined up with ours and is possibly now or in the future behaving in an erratic and dangerous fashion. Should we start working on a giant elephant gun? Continued in comments 1427273901071027193_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram When the first Apollo astronauts landed on the moon, they didn’t know what to expect. Many surprising lunar discoveries were made on those first few trips such as the discovery that the lunar surface is composed of many of the same elements as Earth’s soil – an unknown prior to the collection of lunar soil samples. While the Apollo astronauts were on the lunar surface, they witnessed an eerie glow appearing at the horizon at sunset, and strange glowing columns rising from the surface at sunrise. For years, the source of the strange glow cloud puzzled astronomers and astronauts alike. Now, a new study published in Geophysical Research Letters claims to have discovered the cause of this phenomenon. Continued in comments 1425240729294702351_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram If the prediction is correct, then for the first time in history, parents will be able to point to a dark spot in the sky and say, ‘Watch, kids, there’s a star hiding in there, but soon it’s going to light up.’
Calvin College Dean Matt Walhout touted the discovery by one of his professors in a press release. Coming soon to a piece of the sky near you … two stars that make up a binary system will collide with each other and create a new star that will be clearly visible on Earth without a telescope. That prediction was made by Calvin College astronomer Larry Molnar at the recent meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Texas. He’s forecasting that the stars in the binary system KIC 9832227 will get close enough to explode in 2022 in a spectacular fashion that could be the brightest light in the sky.

Check 99217's Instagram Asteroids have become a hot topic of astronomical research. Not only is NASA (finally) concerned with the ever-present danger of potentially Earth-killing asteroids and how to stop them, but many commercial space firms have also begun looking into technologies and techniques to mine asteroids for precious metals and elements. Some companies have even designed prototypes for asteroid-based autonomous spacecraft which can self-replicate by latching onto other asteroids and 3D printing a whole new ship. Neat stuff. Now, NASA has taken the asteroid fixation one step further by announcing a new mission to visit one of the most unique asteroids within our solar system. 1424216666509955368_2523622912
