All NASA employees asked to work from home: Report

Recently it was confirmed by media reports that all NASA employees and a number of Air Force personnel have been asked to work from home on Friday. The reason behind this was to test remote work technologies in case employees would need to work from home for an extended period due to coronavirus. A former NASA employee called it a chance to "stress test the system" and make sure the technology can handle the load in case an outbreak forces large numbers of people to work from home.

NASA posts picture of hole on Mars, says it could hold possibility of life on the planet

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has recently posted a photo of an unusual hole on the Mars planet, which was discovered in 2011. The image depicts the dusty slopes of Mars’ Pavonis Mons volcano. The image was taken by the HiRISE instrument aboard the robotic Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter which currently circles the planet. NASA said that such Martian pits appear to be “relatively good candidates” to contain life as they have interior caves that remain “relatively protected” from the planet’s harsh surface.

Teenager at NASA discovered a new planet on the third day of his internship

A 17-year-old boy identified as Wolf Cukier just started his internship at NASA and was assigned to examine variations in star brightness captured by Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). While examining two stars circle crossing paths creating an eclipse, he saw signal from a system called TOI 1338. Cukier said that he thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong and it turned out to be a planet. The newly found planet has been named 'TOI 1338 b' and is 6.9 times larger than Earth, or between the sizes of Neptune and Saturn. Src: https://bit.ly/39SvCke
