That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

On July 20th, 1969 Apollo 11 lands on the Moon on the Sea of Tranquillity and transmits the message, “Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed." Six and a half hours later, astronaut Neil Armstrong becomes the first man to walk on the Moon, followed by Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. As Armstrong steps onto the lunar surface he proclaims, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Across the globe, nearly 700 million television viewers witness the event as it happens.

Earth and Kepler-186F

Scientists discover another Earth-like planet

NASA's Kepler Space Telescope discovered an Earth-like planet orbiting a start within the habitable zone of our galaxy, Kepler-186f, approximately 500 light years away from Earth in the Cygnus constellation.  This habitable zone is the region around a star where planetary-mass objects with sufficient atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at their surfaces.  This discovery is rated the first Earth-sized planet to be found in the habitable zone of another star.

Earth's second moon

Earth's Second Moon, 3753 Cruithne

Everyone knows and loves the moon.  What you may not know is that it's not Earth's only natural satellite.  In 1997, another body was discovered, 3753 Cruithne, also called a quasi-orbital satellite of Earth.  This means that Cruithne doesn't orbit Earth in a nice ellipse the same way our moon does.  Instead, Cruithne scuttles around the inner solar system in what's called a horseshoe orbit.

Solar Eclipse

Stunning photos of this morning's solar eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurred this morning, captured in the Faroe Islands, and Svalbard.  A partial eclipse was visible from Scotland to northern Africa.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun.  The moon obscures our parent start and becomes a dark silhouette edged with light.  Because the moon blocks the sun's rays, it casts a shadow of darkness over a small part of Earth beneath it.  Lunar eclipses are different in that Earth comes between the sun and the moon.

Kepler-186f

NASA discovers Earth-sized planet that could be habitable

NASA has discovered an Earth-sized planet that could potentially be habitable.  Designated Kepler-186f and discovered about 500 light years away from home in the constellation Cygnus, this new planet is likely a rocky world and may be similar to Venus, Mars, and Earth.  The system is also home to four other planets, orbiting around a host star about half the size and mass of the sun.
