Radioisotope power sources have been used as essential sources of energy since 1961. Nuclear power reactors use nuclear fission by the method of chain reaction. Special absorbers control this chain reaction, so the produced power depends on the demand for…

The mission of Spectrum-Roentgen-Gamma (SRG) is a collaborative project of Russians and Germans. Their mutual aim was to make an X-ray map of the universe.  On 21 June 2019, the mission launched into space to create this first of its…

What does the world consist of? Scientists have proven that the world is made up of thirteen blocks. However, our daily world is made only by three of these thirteen blocks – the up quark, the down quark, and the…

Recent researches show that the Earth is facing severe issues with energy supplies. Because of the consumerism of today’s society, we are drastically running out of non-renewable resources. There have been quite a few projects and initiatives to minimize the…

Since the beginning of 1990, scientists have observed that the universe is not only expanding, but it is doing this at an increasing pace. The reason for this acceleration is supposed to be the so-called dark energy. However, a new…

Have you ever wondered how energy travels from the sun to the Earth’s magnetosphere? Some scientists consider this question of crucial importance. They claim that it would be beneficial to know how energy changes while traveling out of the sun…

We all know that we can acquire power out of the Sun. There have been several plans of space – located solar stations that would provide us with inexhaustible solar energy. One of them is even going to become a…

In the past, scientists believed that gravity caused slowing down the expansion of the universe. No one had observed this process, but according to theories, it was supposed to be so. However, in 1998, the Hubble Space Telescope observations proved…

Cosmic rays are particles from outer space. It is being observed that there are subatomic particles that fall on the Earth continuously. They can reach energies much higher than the most massive machine. The Austrian physicist Victor Hess is famous…
