*First evidence of Quantum fluctuations in deep space
Evidence of a strange quantum effect first predicted in the 1930 may have been detected by astronomers studying the light emitted from an extraordinarily dense and strongly magnetised neutron star The polarisation of the observed light suggests that the empty space around the neutron star is subject to a quantum effect known as vacuum birefringence.
*Out of control Chinese space station about to crash back to Earth
China has confirmed that its Tiangong-1 orbiting space lab is out of control and likely to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere at any moment. Beijing says the eight and a half tone orbiting outpost is expected to re-enter the atmosphere between now and April next year -- depending on orbital decay rates.
*Back to the Moon
US Vice President Mike Pence has called on NASA to return humans to the Moon. The call comes in the wake of Russia’s announcement that it will join the United States in building the new Deep Space Gateway space station which will be positioned in near lunar space.
*How a cold frozen Mars could have carved the planet’s warm wet features
Scientists say periodic melting of ice sheets on a cold early Mars would have created enough water to carve the ancient valleys and lakebeds seen on the surface of the red planet today. Water-carved valleys and lakebeds leave little doubt that water once flowed on the surface.
*The first detailed spectra of antimatter hydrogen
Scientists with the ALPHA Collaboration have successfully obtained the first detailed spectrum of the antimatter counterpart of hydrogen. The findings reported in the journal Nature show that the spectral lines of antihydrogen match those of normal hydrogen.
The European Space Agency’s new Sentinel 5P Earth observation satellite has successfully blasted into orbit aboard a Russian Rockot rocket from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome north of Moscow.
The Russian Rockot is a converted SS19 three stage liquid fuelled Intercontinental ballistic missile -- with the NATO code name Stiletto.
*Russia launches Progress cargo ship to space station
A Russian Soyuz rocket has launched the Progress MS-07 cargo ship carrying 2.7 tonnes of supplies bound for the International Space Station. The mission blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan
