An explanation of the Fermi paradox
By: Imonikhe Ahimie
Given the extreme age of the universe, estimated to be over 13 billion years old, and the immense numbers of stars contained in it, more than a hundred billion in the Milky Way alone, then, if Sol, our sun, and the solar system are...
An overview on Project Phoenix
By: Perry McCarney
The phoenix is a mythological bird that comes to us from Ancient Egypt; it bursts into flame when it dies. From that flame it is reborn, young and strong again, to live another 500 year lifetime. It has represented rebirth and renewed vigor in Western...

On October 12, 1992, NASA's Ames Research Center and Jet Propulsion Laboratory teamed up to launch a ten year program called High Resolution Microwave Survey (HRMS), as part of NASA's Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) program. The following year, the United States Congress in...
What is the wobble method for discovering other worlds?
By: Perry McCarney
Most stars are essentially enormous nuclear fusion generators that emit energy in the electromagnetic spectrum, lighting up the night sky. The planets of our solar system reflect the light emitted by our star, the sun or Sol, enabling us to see them through telescopes...
By: Darian Peters
At the heart of the Fermi Paradox is the observation that we have not made contact with other civilizations from alien worlds, despite the seemingly high probability that there is other intelligent life in the Universe, that is at least as advanced as our own...
Differences between asteroids and comets
By: D. Vogt
Asteroids and comets are two categories of small space objects which, together, make up the majority of the objects in our solar system - although, since they are small, none of these are as visible or as distinctive as the solar system's eight planets (including...
What is the Asteroid Theory?
By: D. Vogt
The Asteroid Theory is one of the theoretical explanations for the extinction of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago, and is currently the most widely accepted explanations. Essentially, the Asteroid Theory states that a large asteroid, about...
By: D. Vogt
Over the long term, asteroids pose perhaps the most serious threat to life on Earth. Large asteroid impacts are believed to have been responsible for at least some of the nearly catastrophic extinction events in Earth's long history, such as that between the Cretaceous and...
Past missions sent to explore Venus
By: D. Vogt
Venus is the most visited of the other planets in our solar system. This may be surprising to many: since the fall of the Soviet Union, the space program of which specialized in Venus exploration, and the rise of interest in the possible history of...
Should People be Allowed to Live on Mars
By: Patrick Sills
If the human race is to continue to survive as a species, colonization of space is essential. At this writing, our planet Earth holds approximately 7 billion inhabitants. As our lifespans as a whole continue to rise, it stands to reason that our world's population...
