If this works it will change the world, its the SABRE engine in development by Reaction Engines Ltd. It will use oxygen from the atmosphere as the oxidizer and then switch to on board liquid oxygen reserves to make the final push to space. This right here is the next stepping stone to bringing down the cost of getting people and materials into space.

NASA engineer and physicist Harold White announced a few years ago that he was working on a potentially groundbreaking idea that could allow space travel faster than the speed of light. Yes, like in "Star Trek."

And now, to boldly go where no designer has gone before, Mark Rademaker — who is collaborating with White — has created a CGI design concept for the "warp ship." They're calling it the IXS Enterprise.

"We wanted to have a decent image of a theory conforming Warp ship to motivate young people to pursue a STEM career," Rademaker said in an e-mail interview. "It does have some Sci-Fi features that might never transfer to a possible final design, unless we really want to."

Astronomers aren't being poetic when they say this star is a diamond.

Scientists have identified what is possibly the coldest white dwarf ever detected. In fact, this dim stellar corpse is so cold that its carbon has crystallized, effectively forming a diamond the size of Earth, astronomers said.

What's happened in Hebes Chasma on Mars? Hebes Chasma is a depression just north of the enormous Valles Marineris canyon. Since the depression is unconnected to other surface features, it is unclear where the internal material went. Inside Hebes Chasma is Hebes Mensa, a 5 kilometer high mesa that appears to have undergone an unusual partial collapse -- a collapse that might be providing clues.

When a star that is much more massive than out sun gets to the end of it's like it explodes into a Super Nova. A Super Nova can outshine and entire galaxy and radiate stellar matter at speeds up to 10% the speed of light. This particular Super Nova was given the name SN 1572. SN 1572 is also known as Tycho's Supernova, Tycho's Nova, "B Cassiopeiae" (B Cas), or 3C 10. This Super Nova is located in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is one of one of about eight supernovae visible to the naked eye in historical records. It burst forth in early November 1572 and was independently discovered by many individuals.
