Earth occasionally gets mini-moons that could be worth trillions and may spark a gold-rush for Space

You probably know Earth has just one moon and other than picturesque moments at night during those lunar eclipses, red moons, and full moons. There is nothing much in terms of value we derive from it. Though Hollywood would have us believe that when its full moon outside, some guy turn to a werewolf.

However, Earth does occasionally get mini-moons. They are actually very tiny asteroids (the biggest being in the ranges of two meters in diameter), which occasionally gets their gravitational pull entwined with that of Earth and temporarily settle as orbit around our planet. Effectively becoming out moon; or rather moons.

Space experts believe that some of these mini-moons are made up of materials we find very valuable down here on Earth. Some could be pure platinum, and one such mini-moon stretching just one meter in diameter could be worth at least $630 million down here on Earth.

Now think about it! It costs about $62 million to launch SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket into space. If it was aiming at snaring one of these mini-moons, the cost of building that spacecraft could go up in tens …read more

Remember that ‘layman’s article’ we featured a few years ago in which we questioned why man has spent trillions of dollars lifting off to space, while it would be simpler and cheaper to sink (man) into the deeps of the ocean floors? In reality, the ocean deeps remain widely unexplored, and it only means man only looks up to the skies where we have never been instead of down to the deep waters where we once called home.

It turns out NASA is now looking down into the ocean floors, but only so that they can prepare to lift man off the ground again and deep into space. NASA is running some experiment on deepwater exploration so that they can be able to explore the water world of Europa and Enceladus, the moons rotating around planet Jupiter and Saturn respectively.

On August 20, NASA will be sending a submarine down to the deep seafloors near Hawaii in a bid to find an environment analogous to the water world of the Europa and Enceladus. The space agency believes that by exploring the deep waters on …read more

Recently, Google CEO – Sundar Pichai – said the search engine is mulling on placing promoted content and advertisement on its popular map service; Google Maps.

Obviously for the search engine to serve you targeted ads, they need data on your location. That means, Google will have to track your movement, keep record of it, and based on that record serve you targeted ads.

If that seems like something you are not interested in, you obviously turn off location tracking features on your phone. Such as turning off GPS and cellular towers mapping feature.

Well, it now turns out, that Google can still track your location whether or not you have turned off location tracking features on your smartphone. That is according to a new report by the Associated Press (AP).

As things plays out, Google will only ask you for permission to share your location with its apps the first time you start using the applications. That is the only time they will ask that permission, and even if you turn off Location History, Google will still keep tracking your location.

The AP reports that Google Maps, for instance, …read more
