Space rovers can only get us so far as they move across the surface of other planets. There are numerous areas too small for the large vehicles to squeeze into, which leaves sizable sections of areas unexplored.

The solution for that challenge could be in the form of small snake-shaped robots, which were recently commissioned by the European Space Agency. Originally introduced by the Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research, the robots are shaped in a way that makes it easier for them to squeeze through various areas.

Man vs. Chimpanzee: Who Would Win?

As advanced as human beings believe we are, there’s one area where a certain species could beat us. In a physical battle, experts say a chimpanzee would be at an advantage. Pound for pound, chimpanzees are approximately 1.35 times more powerful than their human counterparts. This is according to a recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.

To learn more about the strength of our animal kingdom counterparts, scientists reviewed previous studies looking into chimpanzee strength. The study’s authors found that in activities like jumping, pushing, pulling, and lifting, most primates are stronger than humans. This includes monkeys and apes, the study’s authors said.

Since Pluto was downgraded to a dwarf planet, the world of space has been constantly abuzz over the possibility of a ninth planet in our Solar System. While trying to disprove the existence of a ninth planet in 2016, scientists actually realized they might have discovered one quite a distance from Pluto. There have been other instances of possible ninth-planet sightings, although none have been confirmed to date.

The most recent possibility exists in the Kuiper belt, a ring-shaped accumulation of matter within our Solar System. Researchers at the University of Arizona have spotted mysterious movement within the belt that they believe could point to a previously-undiscovered planet.
