NASA-funded mission to study the sun's energy (7/23/2014)

NASA-funded mission to study the sun's energyOn July 14, 2014, a sounding rocket will be ready to launch from White Sands Missile Range, N.M., a little before noon local time. The Degradation Free Spectrometers experiment will have six minutes to observe the extreme ultraviolet and soft X-rays streaming from the sun, in order to measure the sun's total energy output, known as irradiance, in these short wavelengths. ...> Full Article


Hubble spots spiral bridge of young stars linking two ancient galaxies (7/22/2014)

Hubble spots spiral bridge of young stars linking two ancient galaxiesNASA's Hubble Space Telescope has photographed an unusual structure 100,000 light years long, which resembles a corkscrew-shaped string of pearls and winds around the cores of two colliding galaxies. ...> Full Article


Astronomers find 7 dwarf galaxies with new telescope (7/22/2014)

Astronomers find 7 dwarf galaxies with new telescopeMeet the seven new dwarf galaxies. Yale University astronomers, using a new type of telescope made by stitching together telephoto lenses, recently discovered seven celestial surprises while probing a nearby spiral galaxy. The previously unseen galaxies may yield important insights into dark matter and galaxy evolution, while possibly signaling the discovery of a new class of objects in space. ...> Full Article


Diving for pearls with the Hubble Space Telescope (7/21/2014)

Diving for pearls with the Hubble Space TelescopeStars forming like a string of blue pearls along two elliptical galaxies could be the result of a galactic merger, according to an international team of astronomers. The structure could reveal rare insights about elliptical galaxies. Scientists from Rochester Institute of Technology helped analyze data from the Hubble Space Telescope showing elliptical galaxies coalescing at the core of a dense galaxy cluster. The study is part of a program sponsored by the Hubble Space Telescope. ...> Full Article


Radio-burst discovery deepens astrophysics mystery (7/21/2014)

Radio-burst discovery deepens astrophysics mysteryThe discovery of a split-second burst of radio waves by scientists using the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico provides important new evidence of mysterious pulses that appear to come from deep in outer space. ...> Full Article


Sun-like stars reveal their ages (7/20/2014)

Sun-like stars reveal their agesA new technique for measuring the age of a star using its spin -- gyrochronology -- is coming into its own. Today astronomers are presenting the gyrochronological ages of 22 sun-like stars. Before this, only two sun-like stars had measured spins and ages. ...> Full Article


Merging galaxies and droplets of starbirth (7/20/2014)

Merging galaxies and droplets of starbirthThe Universe is filled with objects springing to life, evolving and dying explosive deaths. This new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captures a snapshot of some of this cosmic movement. Embedded within the egg-shaped blue ring at the centre of the frame are two galaxies. These galaxies have been found to be merging into one and a 'chain' of young stellar superclusters are seen winding around the galaxies' nuclei. ...> Full Article

NASA finds friction from tides could help distant earths survive, and thrive (7/19/2014)

NASA finds friction from tides could help distant earths survive, and thriveAs anybody who has started a campfire by rubbing sticks knows, friction generates heat. Now, computer modeling by NASA scientists shows that friction could be the key to survival for some distant Earth-sized planets traveling in dangerous orbits. ...> Full Article


VLT clears up dusty mystery (7/18/2014)

VLT clears up dusty mysteryA group of astronomers has been able to follow stardust being made in real time -- during the aftermath of a supernova explosion. For the first time they show that these cosmic dust factories make their grains in a two-stage process, starting soon after the explosion, but continuing for years afterwards. The team used ESO's Very Large Telescope in northern Chile to analyze the light from the supernova SN2010jl as it slowly faded. ...> Full Article


Cosmic grains of dust formed in supernova explosion (7/18/2014)

Cosmic grains of dust formed in supernova explosionThere are billions of stars and planets in the universe. The planets are formed in dust clouds that swirled around a newly formed star. But where does the cosmic dust come from? New research from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen and Aarhus University shows that not only can grains of dust form in gigantic supernova explosions, they can also survive the subsequent shockwaves they are exposed to. ...> Full Article


Astronomers bring the third dimension to a doomed star's outburst (7/17/2014)

Astronomers bring the third dimension to a doomed star's outburstIn the middle of the 19th century, the massive binary system Eta Carinae underwent an eruption that ejected at least 10 times the sun's mass and made it the second-brightest star in the sky. Now, a team of astronomers has used extensive new observations to create the first high-resolution 3-D model of the expanding cloud produced by this outburst. ...> Full Article


Planet Mercury a result of early hit-and-run collisions (7/17/2014)

Planet Mercury a result of early hit-and-run collisionsNew simulations show that Mercury and other unusually metal-rich objects in the solar system may be relics left behind by hit-and-run collisions in the early solar system. ...> Full Article


Supermassive black hole blows molecular gas out of galaxy at 1 million kilometers per hour (7/16/2014)

New research by academics at the University of Sheffield has solved a long-standing mystery surrounding the evolution of galaxies, deepening our understanding of the future of the Milky Way. ...> Full Article


Cosmic accounting reveals missing light crisis (7/16/2014)

Cosmic accounting reveals missing light crisisSomething is amiss in the Universe. There appears to be an enormous deficit of ultraviolet light in the cosmic budget. The vast reaches of empty space between galaxies are bridged by tendrils of hydrogen and helium, which can be used as a precise 'light meter.' In a recent study a team of scientists finds that the light from known populations of galaxies and quasars is not nearly enough to explain observations of intergalactic hydrogen. The difference is a stunning 400 percent. ...> Full Article
