NASA: New Lakes Discovered on Saturn's moon Titan

29. october 2007, by joskirps

NASA Scientist Dr. Tony Phillips writes about the latest discoveries on Titan (or Saturn VI), which is "...the largest moon of Saturn, the only moon known to have a dense atmosphere, and the only object other than Earth for which clear evidence of stable bodies of surface liquid has been found." as Wikipedia tells us.Newly assembled radar images from the Cassini spacecraft are giving researchers their best-ever view of hydrocarbon lakes and seas on the north pole of Saturn's moon Titan, while a new radar image reveals that Titan's south pole also has lakes. About 14 percent of the mapped region is covered by what scientists believe are lakes filled with liquid methane and ethane. Lakes and seas are very common at Titan's high northern latitudes where winter is now underway. Scientists say it rains methane and ethane there, filling the lakes and seas.Titan was discovered by Christiaan Huygens in 1655, it is the second-largest moon in the Solar System, after Jupiter's moon Ganymede.Read the entire news story on the NASA Science siteRead more about the Titan moon on Wikipedia

Space: Hundreds of Black Holes Found

27. october 2007, by joskirps

Posted by CowboyNeal on Slashdot:"Hundreds of black holes that were thought to exist at the beginning of the universe have been found by NASA's Spitzer and Chandra space telescopes. From the article, 'The findings are also the first direct evidence that most, if not all, massive galaxies in the distant universe spent their youths building monstrous black holes at their cores. For decades, a large population of active black holes has been considered missing. These highly energetic structures belong to a class of black holes called quasars. A quasar consists of a doughnut-shaped cloud of gas and dust that surrounds and feeds a budding supermassive black hole. As the gas and dust are devoured by the black hole, they heat up and shoot out X-rays. Those X-rays can be detected as a general glow in space, but often the quasars themselves can't be seen directly because dust and gas blocks them from our view.' This is pretty big, as it's empirical evidence proving the existence of objects that theoretically had to exist but could not be detected previously."More information is available on the NASA website

The Dacor And Peoples Opinion

25. october 2007, by elzilcho

Has anyone seen the Dacor lately? They are surely making a name for themselves, aren't they? What I want to know, is what do you, my fellow galaxikians, think about the Dacor. Do you think the idea is goood? Should I develop it more? What could I do to improve.

Double star systems are available now

24. october 2007, by joskirps

The most often requested feature has finally become available: Double star systems are online, and you can edit them right away! For the moment all double star systems are "Type P" systems, which mean that both stars are located in the center of the system. "Type S" systems and systems with more than 2 stars shall follow soon.Just explore that galaxy and I'm sure you'll find some really cool double star systems - if you're looking for double star systems allowing life then take a look at some examples here: PCK685, QKH205, TAE134, MGG008, SHD293, PBJ915, SEA594 (yes, there are double star systems with more than one planet allowing life too!)There are also a lot of double systems with much bigger stars, even if most of them don't allow life on their planets, such as QFD694, VBJ799 or VKK696 for example.I'm sure this is what many site members have been waiting for, so enjoy the new systems and write cool stories 😀Galactical regardsJos Kirps
