Guest article: Borg-like assimilation may not be an interstellar reality, but having a resilient software system is essential to ensure your starship can cope with any scenario in the depths of space.
If a new partnership between NASA and Microsoft bears fruit, the first humans on Mars may not need to leave Earth. Continue reading →
For the first time, a computer simulation has shown that, in theory, habitable binary planets can exist -- what would this mean for the evolution of alien life?
These days it can be hard to differentiate between computer generated imagery (CGI) and real life, particularly in a space setting. But this stunning video is real. Continue reading →
Pluto is often considered to be a 'binary planet' with its largest moon Charon and now it seems that both share more than a common orbit -- they may share a thin atmosphere. Continue reading →
What happens when two neutron stars collide? Using a sophisticated computer simulation, NASA scientists have visualized this violent scenario in awesome degenerate-matter-crushing detail. Continue reading →
When two galaxies collide, the mingling interstellar gases are violently turbulent. Turbulence should switch off any star formation, but galactic mergers are known to be fertile grounds for stellar birthing -- what's going on? Continue reading →
After 3 months of number-crunching, 8,000 computer processors working in parallel have recreated the evolution of our Universe in unprecedented detail. Continue reading →
