I designed a crewed interstellar spacecraft

Hi everybody, I would like to share with you a crewed interstellar spacecraft which I have designed and called Solar One. It employs a combination of 3 propulsion methonds: nuclear fusion, beam-powered propulsion , and photon propulsion. Basically, several compact fusion reactors power a laser syste...

New NASA citizen science project to find exoplanets

Hello!


NASA just released a new app where anybody can search for exoplanets.


I thought it was a good idea to make a video-tutorial showing how to use it, so here it is:

Do you think we should attempt contact with aliens?

I would like to know your opinion about this. Do you think we should try to contact aliens? I think it's safe as long as we choose stars as old as the Sun or younger. I also think that, if a nearby civilization hasn't contacted with us yet, it's probably because they don't have the means to do so. A...

A motivational video

Guys, I made a short video that some of you might find helpful, especially these times.

At least it was helpful for me while I was making it.

Just some cinema shots with some music; I just put them together.

Here it is: https://youtu.be/5n9Cfm8NrLk

Stay safe!

Astronomers will be able to image Earth-like planets by 2025

Hi, I would like to share with you guys a couple of interesting simulations. This simulation belongs to an Earth-like planet located 4 light-years away, imaged with the European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), expected in 2025.

Plants in Super Habitable Exoplanets Could Look Purple

Here some mind-blowing possibilities about super habitable exoplanets: 1. The colour of the sky could be light blue, similar to the colour of the sky on Earth in summer. 2. The oceans could be shallow, with a turquoise blue colour. 3. The vegetation could cover more regions than in Earth, and the co...

Alpha centauri could host the closest Earth-like planet

I think that Alpha centauri could host the closest Earth-like planet. A study shows that 22% of G and K-type stars could have Earth-like planets orbiting in the habitable zone. There are 9 Sun-like stars within 25 light-years. If we make the calculation, two of those stars could have an Earth-like p...
