Rediscovering Venus to find faraway earths (11/1/2014)

Rediscovering Venus to find faraway earthsAs the search for Earth-like planets wages on, a team of researchers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics may have found a way to speed up the process. The team is developing a new laser-based technology known as the green astro-comb to obtain information about the mass of a distant planet. Using this information, astronomers will be able to determine whether distant exoplanets are rocky worlds like Earth or less dense gas giants like Jupiter. ...> Full Article


Smartphone network could track incoming cosmic rays, UCI-led research finds (11/1/2014)

Your smartphone could become part of the world's largest telescope. A team led by UC Irvine physicist Daniel Whiteson and UC Davis physicist Michael Mulhearn has designed an app to turn the global network of smartphones into a planet-sized cosmic ray detector, according to a paper posted today to the physics website arXiv. ...> Full Article

Inside the Milky Way (10/31/2014)

Inside the Milky WayIs matter falling into the massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way or being ejected from it? No one knows for sure, but a UC Santa Barbara astrophysicist is searching for an answer. ...> Full Article


Leaky galaxies lead researchers to better understand the universe (10/30/2014)

Leaky galaxies lead researchers to better understand the universeFocusing on large, star-forming galaxies, researchers were able to measure radiation leaks in an effort to better understand how the universe evolved as the first stars were formed. ...> Full Article


POLARBEAR detects B-modes in the cosmic microwave background (10/30/2014)

The POLARBEAR experiment has made the most sensitive and precise measurements yet of the polarization of the cosmic microwave background and found telling twists called B-modes in the patterns, signs that this cosmic backlight has been warped by intervening structures in the universe. ...> Full Article


Dead star shines on (10/29/2014)

A supernova is the cataclysmic death of a star, but it seems its remnants shine on. Astronomers have found a pulsating, dead star beaming with the energy of about 10 million suns. ...> Full Article


Some newly discovered periodic orbits of Newton's 3-body problem are unstable (10/28/2014)

Some newly discovered periodic orbits of Newton's 3-body problem are unstableIsaac Newton's three-body problem, which examines how three bodies affected by gravitation will orbit around each other, is well known in nonlinear dynamics and applied mathematics. In 2013, Belgrade-based physicists Milovan ?uvakov and Veljko Dmitra?inović discovered 13 new families of periodic orbits, and stated their solutions were 'either stable or marginally unstable.' But Chinese scientists reviewing these findings found at least 7 of these families are unstable, and present their results in a new study. ...> Full Article


Hubble project maps temperature, water vapor on wild exoplanet (10/27/2014)

Hubble project maps temperature, water vapor on wild exoplanetA team of scientists including a University of Colorado Boulder professor used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to make the most detailed global map yet of the glow from a giant, oddball planet orbiting another star, an object twice as massive as Jupiter and hot enough to melt steel. ...> Full Article


Zeroing in on a source of gamma rays (10/26/2014)

Gamma rays are the highest-energy form of radioactive waves known in the universe. However, how they're made and where they come from have been a bit of a mystery. But now a team of researchers, led by Michigan State University astronomer Laura Chomiuk, has made a discovery that may shed some light on the subject. ...> Full Article


NuSTAR discovers impossibly bright dead star (10/26/2014)

NuSTAR discovers impossibly bright dead starAstronomers working with NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, led by Caltech's Fiona Harrison, have found a pulsating dead star beaming with the energy of about 10 million suns. The object, previously thought to be a black hole because it is so powerful, is in fact a pulsar -- the incredibly dense rotating remains of a star. ...> Full Article


Radio telescopes unravel mystery of nova gamma rays (10/25/2014)

Highly-detailed radio-telescope images have pinpointed the locations where a stellar explosion called a nova emitted gamma rays. The discovery revealed a probable mechanism for the gamma-ray emissions, which mystified astronomers when first observed in 2012. ...> Full Article


Astronomers see right into heart of exploding star (10/24/2014)

Astronomers see right into heart of exploding starAn international team of astronomers has been able to see into the heart of an exploding star, by combining data from telescopes that are hundreds or even thousands of kilometers apart. ...> Full Article


Hungry black hole eats faster than thought possible (10/24/2014)

Hungry black hole eats faster than thought possibleAstronomers have discovered a black hole that is consuming gas from a nearby star 10 times faster than previously thought possible. The black hole -- known as P13 -- lies on the outskirts of the galaxy NGC7793 about 12 million light years from Earth and is ingesting a weight equivalent to 100 billion billion hot dogs every minute. ...> Full Article


Winter is coming ... to Titan's south pole (10/23/2014)

Gigantic polar clouds of hydrogen cyanide roughly four times the area of the UK are part of the impressive atmospheric diversity of Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, a new study led by Leiden Observatory, the Netherlands Institute for Space Research and the University of Bristol has found. The research is published today in Nature. ...> Full Article
