Violent origins of disc galaxies probed by ALMA (9/30/2014)

Violent origins of disc galaxies probed by ALMAFor decades scientists have believed that galaxy mergers usually result in the formation of elliptical galaxies. Now, for the the first time, researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array and a host of other radio telescopes have found direct evidence that merging galaxies can instead form disc galaxies, and that this outcome is in fact quite common. This surprising result could explain why there are so many spiral galaxies like the Milky Way in the Universe. ...> Full Article


Martian meteorite yields more evidence of possibility of life on Mars (9/29/2014)

A tiny fragment of Martian meteorite 1.3 billion years old is helping to make the case for the possibility of life on Mars, say scientists. ...> Full Article


'Hot Jupiters' provoke their own host suns to wobble (9/28/2014)

Blame the 'hot Jupiters.' These large, gaseous exoplanets can make their suns wobble when they wend their way through their own solar systems to snuggle up against their suns, according to new research to be published in Science, Sept. 11. ...> Full Article


Lurking bright blue star caught! (9/27/2014)

Lurking bright blue star caught!A team led by Gastón Folatelli at the Kavli IPMU, the University of Tokyo, has found evidence of a hot binary companion star to a yellow supergiant star, which had become a bright supernova. Its existence had been predicted by the team. This finding provides the last link in a chain of observations that have so far supported the team's theoretical picture for this supernova. ...> Full Article


Astrophysicists to probe how early universe made chemical elements (9/26/2014)

Astrophysicists to probe how early universe made chemical elementsIn its first billion years, the universe used massive stars to create nearly a hundred chemical elements. ASU researchers are a key part of a new project to find out how that happened. ...> Full Article


Astronomer pinpoints 'Venus Zone' around stars (9/25/2014)

Astronomer pinpoints 'Venus Zone' around starsSan Francisco State University Astronomer Stephen Kane and a team of researchers have defined the 'Venus Zone,' the area around a star in which a planet is likely to exhibit the unlivable conditions found on the planet Venus. The research will aid Kepler astronomers searching for exoplanets, helping them determine which are likely to be similar to Earth and which are more likely to resemble Venus. ...> Full Article


Mysterious quasar sequence explained (9/24/2014)

Mysterious quasar sequence explainedQuasars are supermassive black holes that live at the center of distant massive galaxies. They shine as the most luminous beacons in the sky by rapidly accelerating matter into their gravitationally inescapable centers. New work solves a quasar mystery that astronomers have been puzzling over for decades. It shows that most observed quasar phenomena can be unified with two simple quantities: how efficiently the hole is being fed, and the viewing orientation of the astronomer. ...> Full Article

This star cluster is not what it seems (9/22/2014)

This star cluster is not what it seemsThis new image from the VLT Survey Telescope in northern Chile shows a vast collection of stars, the globular cluster Messier 54. This cluster looks similar to many others but it has a secret. Messier 54 doesn't belong to the Milky Way, but is part of a satellite galaxy, the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy. This parentage allowed astronomers to test whether there are also low levels of the element lithium in stars outside the Milky Way. ...> Full Article


Researcher gets $1.2 million to develop system to predict solar cycles (9/21/2014)

Dr. Petrus Martens, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University, has received a three-year, $1.2 million NASA Grand Challenge grant to develop a system to predict solar cycles and determine the long-term frequency of events such as solar flares, potentially more than a decade in advance. ...> Full Article


Scientists take key step toward solving a major astrophysical mystery (9/21/2014)

Magnetic reconnection can trigger geomagnetic storms that disrupt cell phone service, damage satellites and black out power grids. But how reconnection, in which the magnetic field lines in plasma snap apart and violently reconnect, transforms magnetic energy into explosive particle energy remains a major unsolved problem in plasma astrophysics. ...> Full Article


First evidence for water ice clouds found outside solar system (9/20/2014)

A team of scientists led by Carnegie's Jacqueline Faherty has discovered the first evidence of water ice clouds on an object outside of our own Solar System. Water ice clouds exist on our own gas giant planets -- Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune -- but have not been seen outside of the planets orbiting our Sun until now. ...> Full Article

Scientist explores birth of a planet (9/18/2014)

Scientist explores birth of a planetDr. John Carr, a scientist at the US Naval Research Laboratory, is part of an international team that has discovered what they believe is evidence of a planet forming around a star about 335 light years from Earth. This research is published in the Aug. 20 issue of the Astrophysical Journal. ...> Full Article


Spectrograph obtains first far ultraviolet spectra of a cometary surface (9/17/2014)
