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


Yale finds a planet that won't stick to a schedule (11/22/2014)

Yale finds a planet that won't stick to a scheduleFor their latest discovery, Yale astronomers and the Planet Hunters program have found a low-mass, low-density planet with a punctuality problem. The new planet, called PH3c, is located 2,300 light years from Earth and has an atmosphere loaded with hydrogen and helium. It is described in the Oct. 29 online edition of The Astrophysical Journal. ...> Full Article


Mars spacecraft, including MAVEN, reveal comet flyby effects on Martian atmosphere (11/21/2014)

Mars spacecraft, including MAVEN, reveal comet flyby effects on Martian atmosphereTwo NASA and one European spacecraft, including NASA's MAVEN mission led by the University of Colorado Boulder, have gathered new information about the basic properties of a wayward comet that buzzed by Mars Oct. 19, directly detecting its effects on the Martian atmosphere. ...> Full Article


Rocket experiment finds surprising cosmic light (11/21/2014)

Using an experiment carried into space on a NASA suborbital rocket, astronomers at Caltech and their colleagues have detected a diffuse cosmic glow that appears to represent more light than that produced by known galaxies in the universe. The discovery suggests that many such previously undetected stars permeate what had been thought to be dark spaces between galaxies, forming an interconnected sea of stars. ...> Full Article


Supersonic laser-propelled rockets (11/20/2014)

Supersonic laser-propelled rocketsToday in Applied Optics, researchers describe a new system that integrates a laser-ablation propulsion system with the gas blasting nozzles of a spacecraft which can increase the speed of the gas flow out of the system to supersonic speeds while reducing the amount of burned fuel. ...> Full Article


NASA's SDO sees returning sunspot produce mid-level flare (11/20/2014)

NASA's SDO sees returning sunspot produce mid-level flareThe sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 12:48 p.m. EST on Nov. 16, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured an image of the event. ...> Full Article


Planet-forming lifeline discovered in a binary star system (11/19/2014)

Planet-forming lifeline discovered in a binary star systemFor the first time, researchers using ALMA have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disc of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems, meaning that these findings will have major consequences for the hunt for exoplanets. ...> Full Article


NASA's hubble surveys debris-strewn exoplanetary construction yards (11/18/2014)

NASA's hubble surveys debris-strewn exoplanetary construction yardsAstronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have completed the largest and most sensitive visible-light imaging survey of dusty debris disks around other stars. These dusty disks, likely created by collisions between leftover objects from planet formation, were imaged around stars as young as 10 million years old and as mature as more than 1 billion years old. ...> Full Article

Insights into the physics of space weather that disrupts cell phones and creates Earthly havoc (11/16/2014)

Insights into the physics of space weather that disrupts cell phones and creates Earthly havocThe volatile 'solar wind' buffets the magnetosphere, the magnetic field that surrounds the Earth, and can whip up geomagnetic storms that disrupt cell phone service, damage satellites and blackout power grids. Precise predictions of such outbursts could prompt measures to cope with them, just as forecasts here on Earth warn of approaching hurricanes and thunderstorms. ...> Full Article


Spotlighting the sun (11/15/2014)

Spotlighting the sunAstronomers with the National Science Foundation-funded National Optical Astronomy Observatory captured pictures not only of Thursday's partial solar eclipse, but also of the 'monster' sized active region or sun spot that has many comparing it to one of a similar size that occurred 11 years ago. ...> Full Article


Hinode satellite captures X-ray footage of solar eclipse (11/15/2014)

Hinode satellite captures X-ray footage of solar eclipseThe moon passed between the Earth and the sun on Thursday, Oct. 23. While avid stargazers in North America looked up to watch the spectacle, the best vantage point was several hundred miles above the North Pole. The Hinode spacecraft was in the right place at the right time to catch the solar eclipse. What's more, because of its vantage point Hinode witnessed a 'ring of fire' or annular eclipse. ...> Full Article


Tremendously bright pulsar may be 1 of many (11/14/2014)

A newly found pulsar, the brightest ever seen, raises questions about a mysterious category of cosmic objects called ultraluminous X-ray sources. A member of the team that announced the discovery, Deepto Chakrabarty, discusses the likelihood of additional ultra-bright pulsars and considers how astrophysicists will align this new find with their understanding of how pulsars work. ...> Full Article
