Taking astronomy to the next level (8/20/2014)

Taking astronomy to the next levelConstruction of the highly anticipated Large Synoptic Survey Telescope can begin now that the National Science Foundation has finalized funding. 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

Triangulum galaxy snapped by VST (8/17/2014)

Triangulum galaxy snapped by VSTThe VLT Survey Telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile has captured a beautifully detailed image of the galaxy Messier 33. This nearby spiral, the second closest large galaxy to our own galaxy, is packed with bright star clusters, and clouds of gas and dust. The new picture is amongst the most detailed wide-field views of this object ever taken and shows the many glowing gas clouds in the spiral arms with particular clarity. ...> Full Article


Planet-like object may have spent its youth as hot as a star (8/16/2014)

Planet-like object may have spent its youth as hot as a starAstronomers have discovered an extremely cool object that could have a particularly diverse history -- although it is now as cool as a planet, it may have spent much of its youth as hot as a star. ...> Full Article


A hellacious two weeks on Jupiter's moon Io (8/15/2014)

A hellacious two weeks on Jupiter's moon IoDuring a year-long series of observations of Jupiter's volcanically active moon, Io, UC Berkeley astronomers Imke de Pater and graduate student Katherine de Kleer observed within a two week period in August 2013 three of the largest outbursts ever seen on the moon, all probably involving lava erupting through fissures in curtains of fire. The observations by the Keck and Gemini telescopes in Hawaii suggest that outbursts are more common than previously thought. ...> Full Article


Extreme volcanism: Image captures 1 of the brightest volcanoes in the solar system (8/15/2014)

Extreme volcanism: Image captures 1 of the brightest volcanoes in the solar systemDuring the middle of 2013, Jupiter's moon Io came alive with volcanism. Now, an image from the Gemini Observatory captures what is one of the brightest volcanoes ever seen in our solar system. The image, obtained on Aug. 29, reveals the magnitude of the eruption that was the 'grand finale' in a series of eruptions on the distant moon. ...> Full Article
