Valetudo is the goddess of health and hygiene, which can not help with this little oddball moon's self-confidence. The initial discovery of the new moons was made possible by Blanco 4-meter telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American in Chile.

    12 new moons spotted around Jupiter - but one may destroy them all

    Research

    One moon is located in the outer group but orbits in the opposite direction. University of Hawaii's Dave Tholen and Northern Arizona University's Chad Trujillo are also part of the planet search team. Only in today's much emptier solar system, after the giant planets finished forming and clearing their surroundings of gas and dust, would small moons like these have been able to survive.
  • ‘Oddball’ among 12 new moons discovered around Jupiter

    Research

    The 2 new regular prograde moons join 15 other previously discovered prograde satellites that typically orbit Jupiter in about an Earth year or less. Jupiter's moons range in size from shrimpy satellites to whopping space hulks. Jupiter has dozens of moons, including the large Galilean satellites, including Io and Europa , in this composite image.
  • Ten new moons-including one 'oddball'-discovered around Jupiter

    Research

    But one of the newly discovered moons - and the strangest - offers a fresh clue. They are prograde moons , meaning that they orbit in the same direction as Jupiter's rotation. The discovery brings Jupiter's total number of known moons to a whopping 79 - the most of any planet in our Solar System. Two of the newly discovered moons, the ones closest to Jupiter, have prograde orbits, too.

    According to Environment Canada, risks associated with the heat wave "are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors". Peel Public Health also has suggestions on its website . The severe weather came amid a bout of hot summer temperatures. It suggests drinking plenty of water-even if you don't feel thirsty-and keeping to cool areas.

    Cosmic ‘ghost particle’ traced offering new ‘window on the universe’

    Research

    The story begins last September 22 at the IceCube observatory in Antarctica, a cubic kilometre of solid ice interlaced with thousands of sensors to detect subatomic particles. The discovery, made by an worldwide team of scientists, marks the first time a high-energy neutrino from beyond the Milky Way has been traced to its place of origin as well as the furthest any neutrino has been known to travel.

    Deaths of 8 Rare Rhinos in Kenya Is 'Major Step Back'

    Research

    The Kenya Wildlife Service had originally planned to translocate 14 black rhinos from two of Kenya's national parks: Nairobi and Lake Nakuru. There are roughly 5,000 black rhinos left in Africa, with 745 of them in Kenya . "It's surprising because [Kenya Wildlife Service] has conducted many successful large scale translocations of rhinos before". "Moving rhinos is complicated, akin to moving gold bullion, it requires extremely careful planning and security due to the value of these rare ...

    Research

    The almost 60-metre-tall towers came tumbling down after explosives were activated, sending them falling in opposite directions at the US Air Force base in Florida. Launch Complex 17 had been Cape Canaveral's southernmost launch site, offering spectators close-up views from Port Canaveral and Jetty Park just a few miles to the south.

    Solar Eclipse On Friday The 13th, Will Be Visible To Lucky Few

    Research

    The world, today , will witness one of the breathtaking visuals of a partial solar eclipse . But for a solar eclipse to occur, all three of them - the earth, the moon and the sun - have to be in the same line. During this eclipse, the duration of the clutter will last for 1 hour and 2 minutes.On July 16, 2019, fractional lunar eclipse will also be observable from the countries like Europe, South America, Australia, Asia and Africa.

    Villagers at risk have been moved to safer areas of the community, with school buildings, a daycare center and relatives offering sanctuary from the behemoth berg, deputy chief officer Lina Davidsen told KNR. A video taken by the team shows how ice can suddenly break off a glacier and form icebergs in the ocean. He said "it sounded like rockets going off " and described it as a very "complex, chaotic, noisy event".
