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


NASA's MAVEN studies passing comet and its effects (10/23/2014)

NASA's newest orbiter at Mars, MAVEN, took precautions to avoid harm from a dust-spewing comet that flew near Mars today and is studying the flyby's effects on the Red Planet's atmosphere. ...> Full Article


Origin of moon's 'ocean of storms' revealed (10/22/2014)

Origin of moon's 'ocean of storms' revealedNew analysis, using data from NASA's GRAIL spacecraft, has determined that the large dark patch on the western edge of the moon's near side is not an impact crater after all. ...> Full Article


Solving the mystery of the 'man in the moon' (10/22/2014)

MIT researchers find that a volcanic plume, not an asteroid, likely created the moon's largest basin. ...> Full Article


Undergrad helps develop method for detecting water on Mars (10/21/2014)

Undergrad helps develop method for detecting water on MarsA Washington State University undergraduate has helped develop a new method for detecting water on Mars. Her findings appear in Nature Communications, one of the most influential general science journals. ...> Full Article


NASA's SDO watches giant filament on the sun (10/21/2014)

NASA's SDO watches giant filament on the sunA snaking, extended filament of solar material currently lies on the front of the sun -- some 1 million miles across from end to end. Filaments are clouds of solar material suspended above the sun by powerful magnetic forces. Though notoriously unstable, filaments can last for days or even weeks. ...> Full Article


Wild ducks take flight in open cluster (10/20/2014)

Wild ducks take flight in open clusterThe Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile has taken this beautiful image, dappled with blue stars, of one of the most star-rich open clusters currently known -- Messier 11, also known as NGC 6705 or the Wild Duck Cluster. ...> Full Article


NASA's Swift mission observes mega flares from a mini star (10/19/2014)

NASA's Swift mission observes mega flares from a mini starOn April 23, NASA's Swift satellite detected the strongest, hottest, and longest-lasting sequence of stellar flares ever seen from a nearby red dwarf star. The initial blast from this record-setting series of explosions was as much as 10,000 times more powerful than the largest solar flare ever recorded. ...> Full Article


NASA-funded rocket has 6 minutes to study solar heating (10/18/2014)

NASA-funded rocket has 6 minutes to study solar heatingOn Sept. 30, 2014, a sounding rocket will fly up into the sky -- past Earth's atmosphere that obscures certain wavelengths of light from the sun -- for a 15-minute journey to study what heats up the sun's atmosphere. This is the fourth flight for the Very high Angular Resolution Ultraviolet Telescope, or VAULT, will launch from the White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces, New Mexico. ...> Full Article


Simulations reveal an unusual death for ancient stars (10/17/2014)

Simulations reveal an unusual death for ancient starsCertain primordial stars -- those 55,000 and 56,000 times the mass of our sun, or solar masses -- may have died unusually. In death, these objects -- among the universe's first generation of stars -- would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind. ...> Full Article


Nitrogen fingerprint in biomolecules could be from early sun (10/17/2014)

Nitrogen fingerprint in biomolecules could be from early sunThe pattern of nitrogen in biomolecules like proteins, which differ greatly from that seen in other parts of the solar system, could have been generated by the interactions of light from the early sun with nitrogen gas in the nebula, long before Earth formed. ...> Full Article


Interstellar molecules are branching out (10/16/2014)

Interstellar molecules are branching outScientists from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy, Cornell University and the University of Cologne have for the first time detected a carbon-bearing molecule with a 'branched' structure in interstellar space. ...> Full Article
