Finding the next earth just got one step easier. A new NASA instrument designed to study dust in the so-called habitable zone around a star may help future missions centered around capturing images of planets similar to Earth.
Exprodat, the oil and gas ArcGIS platform specialist, is taking bookings for a range of training courses taking place in London during March; amongst them is the ArcGIS Pro Essentials for Petroleum
Scientists use laser-driving compression experiments (cool) to recreate the planetary formation process (even cooler).
Vesta, the propoplanet visited by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft from 2011 through 2013, may have once been home to short-lived flows of water-mobilized material – a discovery which could have tremendous implications for the field of planetary science, according to the US space agency.

Known as a "triple shadow transit," three of Jupiter’s moons will simultaneously cast shadows onto the cloudy planet on Saturday (January 24th, 2014). Get ready!
Features include flight planning, guidance and data capture software, a spectrally calibrated digital high spatial resolution camera system, and cloud based software to geo-spatially locate, orthorectify,
New images of Ceres captured by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft during its approach to the dwarf planet are the best yet obtained by the spacecraft, and appear to show evidence of craters as well as a mysterious white spot first discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2003.
On January 26, 2015, the 0.6 mile-wide asteroid 2004 BL86 will pass within 745,000 miles of Earth. So...there's not much to worry about. Just get your telescopes ready.
Image Caption: Artistic concept of a planetary system. Credit: Wikipedia/NASA/JPL-Caltech The term Astronomy encompasses a broad range of topics, including the study of stars, galaxies, and planets. In order to focus on the different areas of study, many subfields of astronomy emerge. One such area is the study of planets known, appropriately, as Planetary Astronomy. Observational Planetary Astronomy Even within the field of Planetary Astronomy, there are several divisions to...
Solar cycles: what are they and why should we care about them? Solar cycles are made up of what are known as solar minimums (min) and solar maximums (max). We refer to a solar min at the time when the sun is not active with many sunspots, while a solar max is just the opposite when we see a large increase in sunspot activity. So how long do solar cycles last? Typically they run on what is known as an 11 year cycle from the max to the min and then start over again anew. As of 2012 we...
