Water is NASA’s Game of “Where’s Waldo?” That Spans the Universe, Starting with Mars

For quite some time now NASA has been searching the nearby planets and their moons for any sort of sign of life and the basic necessity of life, water.

Any trace of water that can be found will help to both prove, and disprove a lot of the scientific theories about the planets that surround Earth.  Not only will it do that, but it will also provide us with the necessary resources needed for human survival on another planet.

In recent history, the pursuit of water has shifted to the planet Mars.

In the month of September 2015, NASA confirmed the evidence that liquid water does indeed flow on the surface on Mars thanks to the help of scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology located in Atlanta, GA.  We previously knew that Mars had polar ice caps, but we could never find evidence that confirmed that water existed …

Fermi Bubbles

One of the great things about the scientific study of the universe is that many times we do not know what we are discovering. There are plenty of things that we can observe without understanding, and we certainly cannot predict their future importance in understanding the universe we live in. Fermi bubbles are one of those fantastic things that we find in our universe that inspire curiosity and further study. Since their discovery in 2010, by a team from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, there has been a strong desire to understand their origin.

The first question that many may have is, “What is a Fermi Bubble?”. Fermi Bubbles are a pair of balloon shaped structures in the middle of the Milky Way that are made up of energetic gamma rays, which are the most powerful rays in the universe. They were first observed using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope, …
