MUSE reveals true story behind galactic crash (11/27/2014)

MUSE reveals true story behind galactic crashThe new MUSE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope has provided researchers with the best view yet of a spectacular cosmic crash. The new observations reveal for the first time the motion of gas as it is ripped out of the galaxy ESO 137-001 as it ploughs at high speed into a vast galaxy cluster. The results are the key to the solution of a long-standing mystery -- why star formation switches off in galaxy clusters. ...> Full Article


Astronomers dissect the aftermath of a supernova (11/27/2014)

Astronomers dissect the aftermath of a supernovaIn research published today in the Astrophysical Journal, an Australian led team of astronomers has used radio telescopes in Australia and Chile to see inside the remains of a supernova. 'Our observations with the ATCA and ALMA radio telescopes have shown signs of something never seen before, located at the center or the remnant. It could be a pulsar wind nebula, driven by the spinning neutron star, or pulsar, which astronomers have been searching for since 1987.; ...> Full Article


How to estimate the magnetic field of an exoplanet? (11/27/2014)

Scientists developed a new method which allows to estimate the magnetic field of a distant exoplanet, i.e., a planet, which is located outside the Solar system and orbits a different star. Moreover, they managed to estimate the value of the magnetic moment of the planet HD 209458b. The group of scientists including one of the researchers of the Lomonosov State University published their article in the Science magazine. ...> Full Article


Jets, bubbles, and bursts of light in Taurus (11/26/2014)

Jets, bubbles, and bursts of light in TaurusThe NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a striking view of a multiple star system called XZ Tauri, its neighbour HL Tauri, and several nearby young stellar objects. XZ Tauri is blowing a hot bubble of gas into the surrounding space, which is filled with bright and beautiful clumps that are emitting strong winds and jets. These objects illuminate the region, creating a truly dramatic scene. ...> Full Article


Sun's rotating 'magnet' pulls lightning towards UK (11/26/2014)

The sun may be playing a part in the generation of lightning strikes on Earth by temporarily 'bending' the Earth's magnetic field and allowing a shower of energetic particles to enter the upper atmosphere. ...> Full Article


European satellite could discover thousands of planets in Earth's galaxy (11/25/2014)

European satellite could discover thousands of planets in Earth's galaxyPrinceton University and Lund University researchers project that the recently launched European satellite Gaia could discover tens of thousands of planets during its five-year mission. ...> Full Article


Sustainability, astrobiology illuminate future of life in universe, civilization on Earth (11/25/2014)

Sustainability, astrobiology illuminate future of life in universe, civilization on EarthTwo astrophysicists argue that questions about the future of life on Earth and beyond may soon be resolvable scientifically, thanks to new data about the Earth and about other planets in our galaxy, and by combining the earth-based science of sustainability with the space-oriented field of astrobiology. ...> Full Article


Birth of planets revealed in astonishing detail in ALMA's 'best image ever' (11/25/2014)

Birth of planets revealed in astonishing detail in ALMA's 'best image ever'Astronomers have captured the best image ever of planet formation around an infant star as part of the testing and verification process for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array's new high-resolution capabilities. ...> Full Article


Revolutionary ALMA image reveals planetary genesis (11/25/2014)

Revolutionary ALMA image reveals planetary genesisThis new image from ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, reveals extraordinarily fine detail that has never been seen before in the planet-forming disc around a young star. These are the first observations that have used ALMA in its near-final configuration and the sharpest pictures ever made at submillimetre wavelengths. The new results are an enormous step forward in the observation of how protoplanetary discs develop and how planets form. ...> Full Article


The riddle of the missing stars (11/25/2014)

The riddle of the missing starsThanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, some of the most mysterious cosmic residents have just become even more puzzling. New observations of globular clusters in a small galaxy show they are very similar to those found in the Milky Way, and so must have formed in a similar way. ...> Full Article


Astronomers solve puzzle about bizarre object at the center of our galaxy (11/24/2014)

Astronomers solve puzzle about bizarre object at the center of our galaxyThe mystery about a thin, bizarre object in the center of the Milky Way that some astronomers believe to be a hydrogen gas cloud headed toward our galaxy's enormous black hole has been solved by UCLA astronomers. ...> Full Article


How a giant impact formed asteroid Vesta's 'belt' (11/24/2014)

Collisions of heavenly bodies generate almost unimaginable levels of energy. Researchers at Brown University used NASA's ultra-high-speed cannon and computer models to simulate such a collision on Vesta, the second-largest object in the asteroid belt. Their analysis of the images -- taken at a million frames per second -- shows how Vesta may have gotten the deep grooves that encircle its midsection. ...> Full Article


Unravelling the mystery of gamma-ray bursts (11/24/2014)

Unravelling the mystery of gamma-ray burstsA team of scientists hope to trace the origins of gamma-ray bursts with the aid of giant space 'microphones.' Researchers at Cardiff University are trying to work out the possible sounds scientists might expect to hear when the ultra-sensitive LIGO and Virgo detectors are switched on in 2015. Dr. Francesco Pannarale and Dr. Frank Ohme, in Cardiff University's School of Physics and Astronomy, are exploring the potential of seeing and hearing events that astronomers know as short gamma-ray bursts. ...> Full Article


VLTI detects exozodiacal light (11/23/2014)

VLTI detects exozodiacal lightBy using the full power of the Very Large Telescope Interferometer an international team of astronomers has discovered exozodiacal light close to the habitable zones around nine nearby stars. This light is starlight reflected from dust created as the result of collisions between asteroids, and the evaporation of comets. The presence of such large amounts of dust in the inner regions around some stars may pose an obstacle to the direct imaging of Earth-like planets. ...> Full Article


NASA's Swift mission probes an exotic object: 'Kicked' black hole or mega star? (11/23/2014)

NASA's Swift mission probes an exotic object: 'Kicked' black hole or mega star?An international team of researchers analyzing decades of observations from many facilities, including NASA's Swift satellite, has discovered an unusual source of light in a galaxy some 90 million light-years away. ...> Full Article
