If we want to know more about whether life could survive on a planet outside our solar system, it’s important to know the age of its star. Young stars have frequent releases of high-energy radiation called flares that can zap their planets' surfaces. If the planets are newly formed, their orbits may also be unstable. On the other hand, planets orbiting older stars have survived the spate of youthful flares, but have also been exposed to the ravages of stellar radiation for a longer p...

Observations of "Jellyfish galaxies" with ESO's Very Large Telescope have revealed a previously unknown way to fuel supermassive black holes. It seems the mechanism that produces the tentacles of gas and newborn stars that give these galaxies their nickname also makes it possible for the gas to reach the central regions of the galaxies, feeding the black hole that lurks in each of them and causing it to shine brilliantly. The results appeared today in the journal Nature. An Italian-led team o...

Cosmic radiation is considered the main health hazard to human spaceflight and space exploration of the Moon, Mars and beyond, which is why ESA has made cosmic radiation a focus of its research programme. Radiation poses a risk to the human body in the form of cancer, central nervous system disorders, cardiovascular problems and tissue degeneration. Beyond Earth's magnetic field, its full force is a barrier to human exploration of the Solar System. "Crewmembers may be exposed to different ...

    Title:                      DIWATA-1 Orbital Lifetime Analysis using Systems Tool Kit (STK) and Conjunction Probability Assessment through Satellite Orbital Conjunction Reports Assessing Threatening Encounters in Space (SOCRATES)

    Authors:                Rogel Mari D. Sese, Ph.D. and Adrian Josele G. Quional

    Description:           This paper presents an analysis of the orbital status of the first Filipino-made satellite, DIWATA-1, that has been conducted using open source tools such as STK and SOCRATES - the tools utilized to analyze its orbital lifetime based on the historical Two-Line Element Sets (TLEs) and to assess its probability of conjunction with other space objects. The methods provided a sufficient and timely status report but it is recommended that other more accurate methods be utilized for the future space program of the country.
