Four new giant telescopes.

Four new giant telescopes are about to rock astronomy.

There's about to be some new telescopes in town.

Thanks - here's another good article.
How about an asteroid that could be the core of a planet?

itís possible that Psyche is the leftover core of a planet that never properly formed because it was hit by objects in our solar system and effectively lost its mantle and crust.

Again, a great article.



Not only has science and engineering made it possible to place this level of awareness into general knowledge, but the imaging abilities we now possess give us a great visual reference to underpin the science.

Thanks - yes -
all of a sudden the main news has been hit with some amazing space stories.



Just think that one day robots or humans could land on the iron core of a planet!
We had every right to say that such a thing was impossible
only a few years ago.
