Check 99217's Instagram Researchers working with NASA’s Kepler Mission have been hard at work over the last several years searching for habitable exoplanets with the Kepler space telescope in hopes of someday discovering alien life outside our solar system. Earlier this year, NASA surprised the astronomy world with the discovery of seven new exoplanets orbiting the dwarf star Trappist-1 in the constellation Aquarius, three of which are believed to possibly be habitable. That mission is still ongoing, and another NASA announcement has revived the growing hope that we might soon find life elsewhere in the cosmos. At a press conference yesterday at NASA’s Silicon Valley-based Ames Research Center, Kepler researchers announced the discovery of 219 new exoplanets, out of which ten are believed to be in the habitable “Goldilocks” zone where life might be possible. That discovery marks the end of Kepler’s survey of a section of space surrounding the constellation Cygnus. 1542259443453154941_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram This August 21, 2017, a rare total eclipse of the sun will be visible across much of the United States. Already being dubbed as “The Great American Total Solar Eclipse,” it is expected to be seen across the country in a line crossing roughly between Oregon and South Carolina, as the sun disappears behind the moon, resulting in a sudden drop in temperature and the temporary onset of twilight.
Throughout history, a variety of mythological interpretations existed about what caused solar eclipses. For instance, in ancient China, it was often professed that a massive dragon had eaten the sun; hence why the ancient Chinese word for eclipse– chih–also means “to eat.” 1532833557507401423_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram Anyone been hearing these noises? Residents of Nottingham, England were awoken over the weekend to a mysterious noise which seemed to emanate directly from the sky. The sound occurred throughout the night and early morning hours on May 27 and 28 and could be heard throughout the city center and surrounding suburbs. Mystified townsfolk described the sound as a “roaring” or “whooshing” sound and took to Twitter to express their shock and awe:
It sounds like the war of the worlds in Nottingham at the moment. Unknown catastrophically loud noise every two minutes.
Nottingham local Hayley Compton told the BBC that the noise was similar to a giant flame in the sky:
For the last two mornings, I’ve heard a series of noises outside my house in Wollaton which sounds like a giant blowtorch. We went outside and it was really loud, I looked up into the sky expecting either to see flames or a very close aircraft of some sort.
Nottingham police received dozens of similar reports about the noises but have yet to identify their source. On Reddit’s Nottingham subreddit, users began speculating what the source of the sound might be. Some of the more popular theories included UFOs, (naturally), noises generated by industrial machines at nearby factories, or even a hot air balloon. However, the frequency of the noise and timing would suggest that it’s probably not the latter. 1525818694226439247_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram The future of technology should be interesting.. Using the latest in robotics technology, the city of Dubai has officially put a robotic police officer into active duty to serve and protect.
What could possibly go wrong?
Presented at the Gulf Information Security and Expo Conference last week, the bot has officially begun his duties walking the beat on the mean streets of Dubai. Rolling around on wheels, the 1.7 meter tall robot can identify gestures and hand signals from 1.5 meters away. Armed with the latest in facial recognition software, AI, emotion detector, and other smart technologies, the ‘robocop’ can interact with people, deal with various emotional states, deal with crime reports, and give directions. It can also bow, shake hands, salute, and speak six languages including Arabic and English.
According to Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, a director with the Dubai Police,
With an aim to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets, the Robocop is the latest smart addition to the force and has been designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels.
The robot also has a built in touch screen tablet in his chest. People can make payments for certain public services, report crimes, look at maps, and type in other simple search queries. 1525117159402320191_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram Astronomers working at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in New Mexico have discovered a mysterious object in the Cygnus A galaxy. Cygnus A is about 800 million light-years from Earth and is one of the strongest sources of radio waves in the known universe. The object was first spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1994, but it was believed to be a cluster of young stars at the time. These most recent observations show that the object has very quickly become “extraordinarily bright,” baffling astronomers as to what its identity might be. Rick Perley, an NRAO astronomer who spotted the luminous anomaly, says that whatever the object is, it lit up to its current brightness relatively recently:
To our surprise, we found a prominent new feature near the galaxy’s nucleus that did not appear in any previous published images. This new feature is bright enough that we definitely would have seen it in the earlier images if nothing had changed. That means it must have turned on sometime between 1996 and now.
There are two leading theories about what the ‘extraordinarily bright’ object might be: one, that it could be a black hole outburst. An outburst is a jet of energy and matter which was lucky enough to be flung away from the gravitational center of a black hole as opposed to pulled into its inescapable grasp. 1524859389952293413_2523622912

Check 99217's Instagram Do planets have feelings? Can they hear astronomers talking about them … giving them derogatory names like “rogue” … referring to them as orphans, wandering or starless without knowing anything about their history or how they came to be in the non-solar-system state they seem to be in? A new study of a so-called orphan planet refers to it as “lonely” – could this be why it is suddenly acting like a brown dwarf or a young star? What is the medical term for “anthropomorphism about planets” and is there a treatment? Asking for a friend.
A group of astronomers from the University of Valparaiso and the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, led by Amelia Bayo of Valparaiso, have been using the the ALMA observatory in Chile to study OTS44 — a free-floating planetary-mass object discovered in 1998 and currently located 550 light-years away in the constellation Chamaeleon. OTS44 is approximately 11.5 times the mass of Jupiter and is the smallest and least massive known free-floating planet. On the plus side, it’s one of only four known to have an orbiting disc. However, according to Bayo’s study published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, the disc is much different that that of Saturn or other ringed planets, hinting that OTS44 may not be a planet at all. 1522067021863588278_2523622912
