Watching for a black hole to gobble up a gas cloud (4/19/2014)

Watching for a black hole to gobble up a gas cloudG2, a doomed gas cloud, is edging closer to Sgr A*, the hungry supermassive black hole at the Milky Way's center. The closest approach between the two is predicted to occur any day now. Northwestern University astrophysicist Daryl Haggard has been watching closely, and her data do not show enhanced emission in the X-rays. 'The gas cloud is late to the party, but it remains to be seen whether G2 is fashionably late or a no show,' Haggard says. ...> Full Article


Sun emits a mid-level solar flare (4/19/2014)

Sun emits a mid-level solar flareThe sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 9:03 a.m. EDT on April 18, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. ...> Full Article


Gravity measurements confirm subsurface ocean on Enceladus (4/18/2014)

Scientists, including Caltech's David Stevenson, have used a geophysical method to confirm that the Saturnian moon Enceladus harbors a large ocean beneath its icy shell. ...> Full Article


To boldly go? Experts issue ethics guidelines for NASA's next generation of risky missions (4/17/2014)

An Institute of Medicine committee has issued a report with ethics principles and guidelines to aid NASA in decision-making for longer, higher risk human spaceflights. ...> Full Article


Galactic serial killer (4/16/2014)

Galactic serial killerThis new image from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile shows two contrasting galaxies: NGC 1316, and its smaller neighbour NGC 1317. These two are quite close to each other in space, but they have very different histories. The small spiral NGC 1317 has led an uneventful life, but NGC 1316 has engulfed several other galaxies in its violent history and shows the battle scars. ...> Full Article


New research finds 'geologic clock' that helps determine moon's age (4/16/2014)

An international team of planetary scientists determined that the moon formed nearly 100 million years after the start of the solar system, according to a paper to be published April 3 in Nature. This conclusion is based on measurements from the interior of the Earth combined with computer simulations of the protoplanetary disk from which the Earth and other terrestrial planets formed. ...> Full Article


From Martian rocks, a planet's watery story emerges (4/15/2014)

After 18 months on Mars, the rover Curiosity has taken more than 120,000 measurements of surface rocks and soil, painting a more detailed image of how much water was once on the Red Planet. An article in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) describes the technique scientists are using to analyze the rocks and what they've found. ...> Full Article


French, American team finds regolith of small asteroids formed by thermal fatigue (4/15/2014)

The centimeter-sized fragments and smaller particles that make up the regolith -- the layer of loose, unconsolidated rock and dust -- of small asteroids is formed by temperature cycling that breaks down rock in a process called thermal fatigue, according to a paper published today in the Nature Advance Online Publication. ...> Full Article

Study finds astronauts' hearts become more spherical in space (4/12/2014)

New findings from a study of 12 astronauts show the heart becomes more spherical when exposed to long periods of microgravity in space, a change that could lead to cardiac problems, according to research to be presented at the American College of Cardiology's 63rd Annual Scientific Session. ...> Full Article


Solar System's edge redefined (4/11/2014)

Solar System's edge redefinedThe Solar System has a new most-distant member, bringing its outer frontier into focus. New work reports the discovery of a distant dwarf planet, called 2012 VP113, which was found beyond the known edge of the Solar System. This is likely one of thousands of distant objects that are thought to form the so-called inner Oort cloud. The work indicates the potential presence of an enormous planet, not yet seen, but possibly influencing the orbit of inner Oort cloud objects. ...> Full Article


First ring system around asteroid (4/10/2014)

First ring system around asteroidObservations at many sites in South America have made the discovery that the asteroid Chariklo is surrounded by two dense and narrow rings. This is the smallest object by far found to have rings and only the fifth body in the Solar System to have this feature. The origin of these rings remains a mystery, but they may be the result of a collision that created a disc of debris. ...> Full Article

Lick's new Automated Planet Finder: First robotic telescope for planet hunters (4/9/2014)

Lick Observatory's newest telescope, the Automated Planet Finder, has been operating robotically night after night on Mt. Hamilton since January, searching nearby stars for Earth-sized planets. Its technical performance has been outstanding, making it not only the first robotic planet-finding facility but also one of the most sensitive. ...> Full Article
