Does on the edge of galaxies, where it is dark, empty, cold, and the molecules without being observed or any contact with other matter, fall into "quantum fade", which makes them even more difficult to be observed? Scientific outsider, in the magazine "Scientific Reports," has published a solution idea on how to investigate this matter. Will his work get attention and will scientists confirm or overthrow his hypothesis? And what problems that bother the academy will the explorer have to face?
Twenty thousand high quality images from the Hawaii Two-0 (H20)/Cosmic Dawn survey have been released to the public on the most popular citizen science project: Galaxy Zoo. Anyone in the world can become a citizen scientist and help astronomers classify images taken with one of the most advanced instruments.
NASA plans to land a manned mission on the surface of the Moon in 2025. As part of the Artemis III mission, two astronauts will remain in orbit, and two will land and spend about a week. The crewed mission Artemis II is planned earlier: four astronauts will fly around the Moon at an altitude of 8,900 km above the surface. This should take place in 2024. Before this happens, however, the unmanned Artemis I mission had to be launched. Its launch was delayed, but ultimately the mission was launched in November.
Devices developed in Poland will be used in the Artemis mission. On board the Orion spacecraft there are infrared detectors from the Polish company VIGO Photonics. A set of ionising radiation detectors was developed by the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Kraków.
