[ Watch The Video: Countdown To Pluto ] Gerard LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is one of the fastest ever built. Launched in 2006 and traveling at one million miles per day, its destination is one of the most distant bodies in our solar system, the ex-planet Pluto. According to NASA, New Horizons reached Jupiter in February 2007 and with a close fly by it received a gravitational push to shorten its destination time by three years. Alan...

Supervolcanoes And Volcanic Activity
2014-01-06 03:54:43

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online One team of researchers has uncovered the factors that determine the frequency and magnitude of volcanic activity, while another has identified the triggers for the rare and explosive eruptions experienced by supervolcanoes, according to studies currently appearing in the advanced online edition of the journal Nature Geoscience. In one paper, ETH-Zurich professor Carmen Sanchez-Valle and her colleagues used an X-ray beam at the...

Molten Rock Support Atlas Mountains In Morocco
2014-01-03 04:28:44

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The standard model for mountain structure, in which high topography must have deep roots for support, is defied by the Atlas Mountains, according to a new study from the Earth Sciences department at the University of Southern California (USC). The team of scientists created a new model which reveals that the Atlas Mountains are floating on a layer of hot molten rock flowing beneath the lithosphere — the Earth's most rigid outer...

Sounds Of Space
2013-12-20 16:31:24

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A scientist from the University of Leicester is helping to reveal the sounds of space by using satellite data. Some areas of space are so quiet you can hear your heart beat, but there are other areas that have the capacity to be as noisy as places on Earth. A multimedia composer at the University’s Space Center decided to generate a few of the surprising Earth-like sounds one could find in space. Andrew Williams used data collected from...

Hubble Finds Europa Water Vapor
2013-12-12 13:10:28

[ Watch the Video: Europa Shows Evidence Of Liquid Water ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For years scientists have suspected the presence of liquid water under the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. Now, the Hubble Space Telescope has detected evidence of water vapor eruption from the moon’s surface, according to a new report published in Science Express on Thursday. The space agency is looking to observations from other sources to confirm Hubble’s initial...

Satellite -- A satellite is an object that orbits another object. With sufficient tangential velocity, the object does not collide with the primary object it orbits, but maintains a distance from that object as the rate at which it falls towards that object is similar to the rate that it travels away, thus the object orbits the primary object and becomes a satellite. In other words: gravitational force serves as the centripetal force needed to make the object circle the primary...

Galileo Probe -- The Galileo probe was an unmanned probe sent by NASA to study the planet Jupiter and its moons. Named after the astronomer Galileo Galilei, it was launched on October 18 1989 by the Space Shuttle Atlantis and arrived at Jupiter on December 7 1995. Galileo's launch had been significantly delayed by the hiatus in Space Shuttle launches that occurred after the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and new safety protocols that were implemented as a result forced Galileo to use...

Jupiter's Moon Callisto -- With a diameter of over 4,800 km (2,985 miles), Callisto is the third largest satellite in the solar system and is almost the size of Mercury. Callisto is the outermost of the Galilean satellites, and orbits beyonds Jupiter's main radiation belts. It has the lowest density of the Galilean satellites (1.86 grams/cubic centimeter). Its interior is probably similar to Ganymede except the inner rocky core is smaller, and this core is surrounded by a large icy...

Jupiter's Moon Ganymede -- Ganymede is the largest satellite in the solar system with a diameter of 5,268 km (3270 miles). It is larger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of orbiting Jupiter, it would easily be classified as a planet. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of Jupiter it could be classified as a planet. Like Callisto, Ganymede is most likely composed of a rocky core with a water/ice mantle and a crust of rock and...
