Apollo 1 Tragedy [January 27, 1967]

On January 27, 1967, three NASA astronauts, Roger B. Chaffee (b. February 15, 1935), Virgil I. Grissom (b. April 3, 1926), and Edward H. White II (b. November 14, 1930) died when a flash fire swept through the Apollo 1 command module during a launch rehearsal test. The three men inside perished despite the best efforts of the ground crew. It would take more than 18 months, and extensive redesigns, before NASA sent more astronauts into space.

Neptune became the outermost planet on January 21, 1979

On January 21, 1979, a rare phenomenon occurred in our solar system: Neptune, the 8th planet from the Sun, took over Pluto and became the outermost planet as Pluto moved closer due to their highly elliptical orbits. Pluto was still a planet back then (good old days!).

New Technologies to Enable Sustainable Agricultural Practice

Agricultural practices are greatly affected by climate conditions, as changes in temperature and precipitation patterns have led to shifts in crop growth and yields. Warmer temperatures are responsible for increased evaporation rates, leading to dry soils and reduced crop growth.

Hemp Testing: 4 best practices

Hemp and CBD products are processed from a plant called Cannabis Sativa. Marijuana, a banned substance till recently with restricted availability for medical and adult recreational purposes in the form of medical cannabis, is also sourced from the same plant with a primary difference in the presence of psychoactive compounds in them.

The first soft landing on Titan was performed by the Huygens spacecraft on January 14, 2005

On January 14, 2005, the Huygens spacecraft, the atmospheric entry robotic probe part of the Casini-Huygens mission performed the first soft landing on Titan. As of 2023, it is the only one accomplished in the outer Solar System and was also the first on a moon other than Earth’s, and the most distant landing ever.

What Can Be Done About Microplastics?

Microplastics are small plastic particles five millimeters or less in size. They come from commercial and product development and the breakdown of larger plastics. In addition, individuals and corporations have a hand in microplastics blanketing our planet.

Microplastics are small but mighty – and not in a good way. As tiny as these particles are, they can cause serious harm to our environment and our health. Let’s look at this in more detail below.

10 amazing Uranus facts [the most underrated planet in the solar system]

Uranus looks like a featureless blue-green marble from space. Because of this, most people consider the gas giant “boring” and as a result, it receives the least attention from science enthusiasts. But, actually, the planets in our solar system are all fascinating in their own way, and each one has unique features that make it worth studying. Uranus has a number of interesting features and it is an important part of our solar system. It offers many opportunities for scientific discovery.

With a radius of 25,362±7 km (about 15,760 miles), Uranus is the third-largest planet in the solar system, after Jupiter and Saturn. It’s the fourth, behind Neptune, by mass, though.

Its average distance from the Sun is roughly 20 AU (3 billion km or 2 billion miles, see notes 1). 1 Uranus year is about 84 earth years. One day on Uranus takes about 17 hours and 14 minutes.

Here are the 10 amazing facts about Uranus, (probably) the most underrated planet in the solar system.
