  • This Steam Chart Topper is a perfect twist on GOTY Contender Vampire Survivors

    Image: Flanne vampire survivors is a very straightforward gothic roguelike that snuck onto Steam Early Access in late 2021. Earlier this year, it had started to explodeand the game that allows you “be the bullet hell” has since racked up over 100,000 positive reviews. Now he has a spiritual brother called 20 minutes until dawn […]

  • Strange lunar pits could have temperatures comfortable enough for humans to live in

    The temperature on the Moon can range from boiling to freezing depending on whether it’s night or day, but scientists think there may well be sheltered pits and caves where the temperature is quite reasonable, whatever be the time. In such places, the temperature hovers around 17 degrees Celsius (63 degrees Fahrenheit), according to new […]

  • The lunar trenches with mild temperatures could shelter future explorers

    This Mare Tranquillitatis depression is an approximately 328-foot (100-meter) wide pit on the Moon’s surface that stays at a comfortable 63 degrees Fahrenheit.Image: NASA/Goddard/Arizona State University Data from a NASA probe suggests lunar pits have comfortable temperatures due to their shaded overhangs, which keep them cool during the day and to prevent the heat to […]

  • We now know why Jupiter doesn’t have big glorious rings like Saturn.

    Given its similarities to its neighbor Saturn, it seems natural to wonder why Jupiter doesn’t also have a beautiful and vast ring system visible. Alas, this is not the reality. Although Jupiter has rings, they are fine, tenuous and fragile dust, visible only when backlit by the Sun. According to new research, these discount rings […]

  • RNA building blocks spotted in the center of the Milky Way

    A team of researchers say they have found building blocks of RNA in a molecular cloud near the center of the Milky Way. The discovery has implications for theories about how life began on Earth – and possibly elsewhere. The molecular cloud is named G+0.693-0.027. The team of astrophysicists, astrobiologists and chemists conducted a study […]
