A space discovery is a subject many people find exciting and exhilarating. And, if you think about it, there is something extraordinary, and, at the same time frightening about the subject. Knowing that somebody managed to decipher a new element about the great unknown space that starts when the last ozone layer ends, makes us people curious about what still lays in the shadows. The reason this happens, I believe, is the fact that we, as people are still curious about the unknown and we are hooked by anything that still poses a mystery. And, judging by this criterion, the Universe is still a big, unsolved puzzle that teases our expectations.
However, when it comes to being informed about new space discoveries, one should act with prudence, as the web is filled by sites that cannot be trusted and that should, at all cost, be avoided. So, below I have put together the top 3 resources for finding out about new space discoveries. These sites are, from my point of view, the most up to date and reliable resources any space enthusiast can count on when it comes to the validity of the information they offer.
The first site I want to mention is https://www.nasa.gov/. This site should be, in fact, the main source you should count on. In this regards, NASA’s official site offers its readers the latest news about projects and discoveries, updates about current missions, educational video series as well as a live TV feature. Apart from being quite informative, this resource is also fascinating in itself. Who would have thought that, whenever one wants, she/he could sit back and enjoy an up-to-the-minute transmission of space itself?
The next source I want to share with you is http://www.space.com/. This website is also a reliable resource as it offers users a newsfeed filled with the latest headlines about space. What stands out about it is the fact that it is easy to use. With just one click, you can access topics such as tech, spaceflight, science and astronomy, search for life and much more. Just give it a try, you won’t regret it!
Last but not least, you should try http://www.heavens-above.com. In fact, for a better experience, I suggest you download their app. In that way, any time you open your laptop or mobile phone, you will be able to not only get info about new discoveries, but also use live sky charts to uncover the mysterious facets of the sky by yourself, from the comfort of your home, here, on Earth.
This is it! These are my three favorite resources for finding out about new space discoveries. I hope you will find them as interesting and as fascinating as I did, and that they will help you keep in touch with the news coming directly from the Universe.
