Global Mysteries Stay Far Beyond Space and Galaxies

West Midlands Federation of Astronomical Societies

Exploring space is very much interesting. It is always expanding and is not an absolute quantity or entity that can be measured. Even constellations are always changing in flux. The three basic constituents of the universe are space, time, matter and energy. The entire science domain encompasses the whole extent of our life, which explains where we live, why we live and what life is. Space and time are the two most mysterious elements in the universe. What we sense and perceive as space and time is fundamentally incorrect and is just an illusion. Space is not an object or an entity that exists by itself. It is the vacuum between two things and every object that is created stands with respect to other objects. If space is an interval between two objects, time is the interval between two events and does not have absolute existence. Whenever time is measured, it is done with respect to a frame of reference. We normally think of space as a complete vacuum entity, which endlessly stretch towards all directions. A great many mysterious events happen in space. Scientists get pictures from planets, stars and asteroids via the transmitted rays that reach earth. A wide gamut of rays exists in space, which allocate the electromagnetic spectrum. These rays are Gamma, X rays, Plasma, ultraviolet rays etc. This spectrum bonds space with the earth. These rays are the uniting element that connects planets with the mankind.

The galaxy and everything in the universe

The modern age has introduced plenty of theaters to display the solar system and portable planetariums are employed for learning, teaching and exploring astronomy. Various planetariums allow you, gazing stars and explore the endless sky and its associated celestial bodies. Portable planetariums are advantageous when you move to a different location. The ever-shining star Sun and the galaxy we belong to are moving at incredible speeds. The galaxy and everything else in the universe, also moves at a greater pace.

Here is some recent spaceflight news from Space. Delta 4 rocket has launched from United Launch Alliance, which carried the seventh satellite to be the part of the Air Force Wideband constellation. The communication system is deployed for military operations. Another update is that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators announced on this Tuesday (July 28, 2015) regarding the disaster of Spaceship Two. The pilot of the spaceflight returned back to Earth via parachute on October 31, soon after a few moments when the vehicle broke down in the test flight schedule and the disaster killed the co-pilot Michael Alsbury too. The accident occurred because the co-pilot unlocked the space plane's re-entry system very early. It leaded to the crash over a desert in California.

Rosetta mission

European Space Agency initiated ‘Rosetta mission’ has successfully achieved to form the great history in future. The spacecraft soft-landed the comet lander ‘Philae’ for the first time. In the next phase, Rosetta will go with the comet all the way through perihelion in the month of August 2015. On its tenth year of journey towards comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the spacecraft crossed two asteroids named ‘2867 Steins’ in the year 2008 and ‘21 Lutetia’ in the year 2010. The spacecraft then reached the deep space in June 2011, and rose again on 20th of January 2014.
