MIT develops a battery-free method for navigating underwater that could transform ocean exploration

MIT has developed a new navigation system designed for use underwater that could do for underwater wayfinding what GPS has done for travel on and above the surface. GPS doesn’t really penetrate underwater, because radio waves aren’t really water-friendly. It’s why you commonly see things like sonar employed on submarines, …

Unusual asteroid could be worth $10,000 quadrillion

16 Psyche is a unique asteroid that orbits the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. According to new observations of the 140-mile diameter rock made using the Hubble Space Telescope, the asteroid may consist mostly of iron and nickel that would be worth about $10,000 quadrillion. — Read the rest Continue …

Scientists film elusive, fast creature in the deep sea

For likely the first time, biologists captured a wild, elusive ram’s horn squid, or Spirula spirula, live on video. The deep ocean — particularly the twilight zone, a dark realm extending some 660 to 3,300 feet below the surface — is little known and woefully unexplored. When navigating the depths …

Watch a NASA spacecraft touch down on asteroid Bennu

Touchdown. Earlier in October, NASA successfully collected rocky samples from asteroid Bennu, a relatively small, well-preserved space rock some 200 million miles from Earth. On Friday, NASA released footage of the spacecraft, OSIRIS-REx, approaching and briefly touching down on the rubbly Bennu. The events, seen in the space agency’s tweet …
