But musician Pablo Carlos Budassi managed to do it by combining logarithmic maps of the universe from Princeton and images from NASA. He created... / READ MORE /
Wolf 1061c, a so-called “super-earth“, has been recently discovered – and it is believed that this planet may have the potential to support life. Orbiting in the habitable “Goldilocks zone” (where temperatures are just right for liquid water/supporting life), Wolf 1061c is one of three planets orbiting a red dwarf star called Wolf 1061, and is... / READ MORE /
