New survey begins mapping nearby galaxies (8/28/2014)

New survey begins mapping nearby galaxiesA new survey called MaNGA -- Mapping Nearby Galaxies at Apache Point Observatory -- has been launched that will greatly expand our understanding of galaxies, including the Milky Way, by charting the internal structure and composition of an unprecedented sample of 10,000 galaxies. ...> Full Article


Fascinating rhythm: Light pulses illuminate a rare black hole (8/28/2014)

Fascinating rhythm: Light pulses illuminate a rare black holeAstronomers have accurately measured -- and thus confirmed the existence of -- a rare intermediate-mass black hole about 400 times the mass of our sun in a galaxy 12 million light years from the Milky Way. The finding, published Aug. 17 in Nature, uses a technique never applied in this way before, and opens the door to new studies of these mysterious objects. ...> Full Article


Mysteries of space dust revealed (8/27/2014)

Mysteries of space dust revealedThe first analysis of space dust collected by a special collector onboard NASA's Stardust mission and sent back to Earth for study in 2006 suggests the tiny specks, which likely originated from beyond our solar system, are more complex in composition and structure than previously imagined. ...> Full Article


New Milky Way maps help solve stubborn interstellar material mystery (8/26/2014)

An international team of sky scholars has produced new maps of the material located between the stars in the Milky Way. The results should move astronomers closer to cracking a stardust puzzle that has vexed them for nearly a century. ...> Full Article

To be located in Chile, LSST is a proposed 8-meter wide-field survey telescope that will image the entire visible sky approximately twice per week, providing an unprecedented amount of information while transforming the emerging discipline of data-enabled science. ...> Full Article


White dwarfs crashing into neutron stars explain loneliest supernovae (8/19/2014)

White dwarfs crashing into neutron stars explain loneliest supernovaeA research team led by astronomers and astrophysicists at the University of Warwick have found that some of the Universe's loneliest supernovae are likely created by the collisions of white dwarf stars into neutron stars. Dr. Joseph Lyman from the University of Warwick is the lead researcher on the paper, The progenitors of calcium-rich transients are not formed in situ, published today by the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. ...> Full Article


Violent solar system history uncovered by WA meteorite (8/19/2014)

Curtin University planetary scientists have shed some light on the bombardment history of our solar system by studying a unique volcanic meteorite recovered in Western Australia.Captured on camera seven years ago falling on the WA side of the Nullarbor Plain, the Bunburra Rockhole Meterorite has unique characteristics that suggest it came from a large asteroid that has never before been identified. ...> Full Article
