Astronomy News & Research

Nuclear fragments could help uncover the origins of life-supporting planets (12/19/2014)

New research published today in the journal Physical Review Letters describes how recreating isotopes that occur when a star explodes, can help physicists understand where life-supporting elements may be found in space. ...> Full Article


Research offers explanation for Titan dune puzzle (12/18/2014)

Research offers explanation for Titan dune puzzleResearch led by Devon Burr, an associate professor in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at UT, shows that winds on Titan must blow faster than previously thought to move sand. The discovery may explain how the dunes were formed. ...> Full Article


Pulsars with black holes could hold the 'holy grail' of gravity (12/17/2014)

Pulsars with black holes could hold the 'holy grail' of gravityThe intermittent light emitted by pulsars, the most precise timekeepers in the universe, allows scientists to verify Einstein's theory of relativity, especially when these objects are paired up with another neutron star or white dwarf that interferes with their gravity. However, this theory could be analyzed much more effectively if a pulsar with a black hole were found, except in two particular cases, according to researchers from Spain and India. ...> Full Article


'Mirage Earth' exoplanets may have burned away chances for life (12/16/2014)

Planets orbiting close to low-mass stars -- easily the most common stars in the universe -- are prime targets in the search for extraterrestrial life. But new research led by an astronomy graduate student at the University of Washington indicates some such planets may have long since lost their chance at hosting life because of intense heat during their formative years. ...> Full Article


Space travel is a bit safer than expected (12/16/2014)

Space travel is a bit safer than expectedAnalysis of data from the MATROSHKA experiment, the first comprehensive measurements of long-term exposure of astronauts to cosmic radiation, has now been completed. This experiment, carried out on board and outside of the International Space Station, showed that the cosmos may be less hostile to space travelers than expected. ...> Full Article


Strange galaxy perplexes astronomers (12/15/2014)

With the help of citizen scientists, astronomers have found an important new example of a very rare type of galaxy that may provide valuable insight on galaxy evolution in the early Universe. ...> Full Article


Losing air (12/14/2014)

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Hebrew University, and California Technical Institute believe a blitz of small space rocks, or planetesimals, may have bombarded Earth around the time the moon was formed, kicking up clouds of gas with enough force to permanently eject small portions of the atmosphere into space. ...> Full Article


Traces of Martian biological activity could be locked inside a meteorite (12/14/2014)

Traces of Martian biological activity could be locked inside a meteoriteDid Mars ever have life? Does it still? A meteorite from Mars has reignited the old debate. An international team that includes scientists from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne has published a paper in the scientific journal Meteoritics and Planetary Sciences, showing that martian life is more probable than previously thought. ...> Full Article


'Smart dust' technology could reshape space telescopes (12/13/2014)

Scientists at Rochester Institute of Technology and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory are exploring a new type of space telescope with an aperture made of swarms of particles released from a canister and controlled by a laser. These floating lenses would be larger, cheaper and lighter than apertures on conventional space-based imaging systems like NASA's Hubble and James Webb space telescope. ...> Full Article


Ground-based detection of super-Earth transit paves way to remote sensing of exoplanets (12/12/2014)

Ground-based detection of super-Earth transit paves way to remote sensing of exoplanetsFor the first time, a team of astronomers -- including York University professor Ray Jayawardhana -- have measured the passing of a super-Earth in front of a bright, nearby sun-like star using a ground-based telescope. ...> Full Article


A colorful gathering of middle-aged stars (12/11/2014)

A colorful gathering of middle-aged starsThe MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile has captured a richly colorful view of the bright star cluster NGC 3532. Some of the stars still shine with a hot bluish color, but many of the more massive ones have become red giants and glow with a rich orange hue. ...> Full Article


20,000 meteorites and counting (12/11/2014)

A new book provides a history of the Antarctic Search of Meteorites program, details about thousands of specimens, what's been learned, and how researchers can obtain samples for free. The program, created by William Cassidy, ensures access to scientists and museums around the world, eliminating what was sure to be a competition for the resources. ...> Full Article


Open for business: 3-D printer creates first object in space on space station (12/10/2014)

Open for business: 3-D printer creates first object in space on space stationThe International Space Station's 3-D printer has manufactured the first 3-D printed object in space, paving the way to future long-term space expeditions. ...> Full Article


'Eye of Sauron' provides new way of measuring distances to galaxies (12/10/2014)

'Eye of Sauron' provides new way of measuring distances to galaxiesA team of scientists, led by Dr. Sebastian Hoenig from the University of Southampton, have developed a new way of measuring precise distances to galaxies tens of millions of light years away. ...> Full Article


Using supermassive black holes to measure cosmic distances (12/9/2014)

Using supermassive black holes to measure cosmic distancesOne of the major problems in astronomy is measuring very large distances in the universe. The current most common methods measure relative distances, but now research from the Niels Bohr Institute demonstrates that precise distances can be measured using supermassive black holes. The results are published in the scientific journal, Nature. ...> Full Article
