NASA telescope identifies farthest gamma-ray blazars

The National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) has announced that one of its most powerful space telescopes has spotted the farthest gamma-ray blazars, a sort of galaxy whose intense emissions are powered by monster black holes.

The monster black holes spurting jets of gamma-ray radiation towards earth have been spotted farther away than ever before. Light from the distant object started travelling to us when the universe was just 1.4 billion years old, nearly 10 per cent of its current age.

U.S. space program may be at risk due to faulty Russian rocket engines

U.S. space program may be at risk due to faulty Russian rocket engines

U.S. space agency NASA and the U.S. military may be at risk because of a major Russian scandal in which rocket engines were built out of cheap and potentially defective metal.

NASA uses Russia’s Proton-M rockets to launch cargo and well as crews to the International Space Station (ISS). But, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin recently revealed that Proton-M rockets would be out of service for the next 3½ months because of engine issues.

Tourists let baby dolphin die on Argentina beach

Tourists let baby dolphin die on Argentina beach

A baby dolphin died last Sunday after a mob of tourists dragged it from the sea of San Bernardo in Argentina and didn’t allow it to return to the water.

The beach where the baby dolphin died is located nearly 200 miles south of Buenos Aires. A footage posted on YouTube shows a number of tourists standing or kneeling around the small marine creature, petting it and taking selfies with it.

An observer said the crowd could have allowed the baby dolphin to return to the water while it was still breathing, but they let it die.

UC Irvine team’s Hyperloop pod ready to race in SpaceX contest

A 50-member team of UC Irvine students is ready with its project to participate in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, which is scheduled to take place at the space firm’s headquarters in Hawthorne on Sunday.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced the Hyperloop project, a concept for a really high-speed ground transport system, in 2013. When UC Irvine students heard about it, they started working on their own designs to build a prototype for future transportation system.
