China tests self-sustaining space station in Beijing

  China tests self-sustaining space station in Beijing <p>Four students from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics entered the Lunar Palace-1 on Sunday with the aim of living self-sufficiently for 200 days.</p>Sealed behind the steel doors of two bunkers in a Beijing suburb, university students are trying to find out how it feels to live in a space station on another planet, recycling everything from plant cuttings to urine.

Astronomers have located a second exoplanet where a year lasts less than the run time of half a season of "Game of Thrones.".

What we need for survival For humans to survive we need oxygen, therefore any planet which does not have oxygen would be unsuitable for us to live on. We also need a supply of water.

Forget the Iron Islands from "Game of Thrones." If you're looking for some truly desolate corners of our non-fiction universe, there are two bizarre iron planets you should know about.

While winters in Westeros can last a long time, the years fly by on EPIC 228813918 b. Because the exoplanet orbits the m-dwarf star EPIC 228813918 in less than four and a half Earth-hours, one day here equals more than five years there.

An international team of scientists used data from NASA's Kepler Space Telescope to measure the orbit of the distant world and compiled their findings in a paper submitted to the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Team that found Proxima b exoplanet looking for a neighbor

  Team that found Proxima b exoplanet looking for a neighbor Proxima Centauri b is the closest world beyond our solar system that we know of, but scientists are checking to see if it's alone.The discovery of Proxima b, a potentially habitable exoplanet around the closest star beyond the sun, was huge news last year. While the focus was on the confirmed existence of planet Proxima b, there were indications in the data that it might not be the only world orbiting the star Proxima Centauri, just over four light years away.

The good news is that there is a creature on this planet that has the fuel you need to get back home. The bad news is that it can destroy you in less than a minute, so you will need to gather the ore from this planet to create gear to fight the monster.

Square Planet Survival . Created by Scythebrine. (1338 votes). Actually the main goal is to survive and (if you want) open the end portal (it's located in the core of 0 hallievbaby Hey there, my dad and I just did a video live stream of this map on my twitch channel, its uploading now you can watch it here.

Making it more intriguing is the fact that EPIC 228813918 b is roughly Earth-sized and thought to be composed of at least 45 percent iron. But it is not the planet with the shortest year/orbit found yet. The planet KOI 1843.03, which orbits its own m-dwarf star four minutes faster, is of similar size and also heavy with iron.

So it seems there may be an oddball category of planets on which you might technically be able to live to be 150,000 years old, given current average human lifespans and ideal living conditions.

Of course, if you kept up your current lifestyle you'd likely end up sleeping for two full years in a row each time you went to bed so those thousands of years would really fly by.

The intense radiation a planet orbiting that close to its star likely experiences could also cut into your total years, but it might still be more hospitable than the Iron Islands.

New Exoplanet-Hunting Instrument Provides Wider View of the Night Sky .
MASCARA's cameras take repeated calculations of the brightness of stars all across the evening sky , and if its software detects that the light dimmed and then brightened, scientists can deduce that a planet may exist and might have passed in front of the star.MASCARA will have its deep gaze set on finding star systems with planets known as "hot Jupiters." These gas worlds are about the same size as Jupiter, but unlike that planet, they orbit quite close to their parent stars and have high surface temperatures.
