Remember when we were kids and we’d look at science books talking about planets and the possibilities of the future from visionaries in sci-fi was exciting? We all knew the Internet was a boon to accessing these topics we’d like to know about. Luckily, we’re here in this age, and we get to know that by the following year:
Supernova By 2016
In the first few months of 2016, a supernova will appear in the sky. According to the Hubble Space Telescope, it would be similar to the supernova we experienced in 2014.
The Refsdal Supernova in 2014 is bound to do the similar thing in 2016, which is to showcase something really beautiful.
Reusable Space Rockets
By this time, Blue Origin, a space tourism company run by Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos, had accomplished a historic launch and landing of a rocket that could be reused after journeying into outer space.
This was a reaction to the early concerns of scientists about space missions being expensive due to expendable and expensive resources. Bezos’ rocket is one-of-a-kind, something that Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk must beat sooner or later!
Asteroid Gold Mine
Advanced technologies built by researchers in Vanderbilt and Fisk Universities in Tennessee uses a gamma-ray spectrometer that can detect almost all elements inside an asteroid or any type of object while using minimal power to do so and even at current temperature.
Asteroid gold mines can be seen by the new spectrometer. Despite the presence of several cosmic rays, the new technology can detect gold.
Now, we just have to wait for someone to create space mining as an industry!
