Stellar thief is the surviving companion to a supernova

Thu, 26 Apr 18 00:08:40 -0700

Hubble found the most compelling evidence that some supernovas originate in double-star systems.

Rugosity and concentricity: In urban planning, look to edges, not just the core

Thu, 26 Apr 18 00:10:10 -0700

Planners should view high rugosity (highly non-concentric) urban areas as symptomatic of vigor in urban and agricultural markets. Greater planning efforts are required to coordinated the co-joined health of both agricultural and urban land-uses. Empirical analysis is supported by land-use policies from 30 case study counties.

To see the first-born stars of the universe

Wed, 25 Apr 18 00:14:40 -0700

ASU-led team aims to use new NASA space telescope to capture light from the first stars to be born in the universe.

Molecular evolution: How the building blocks of life may form in space

Wed, 25 Apr 18 00:15:10 -0700

In an experiment that mimics astrophysical conditions, with cryogenic temperatures in an ultrahigh vacuum, scientists used an electron gun to irradiate thin sheets of ice covered in basic molecules of methane, ammonia and carbon dioxide, the building blocks of life. The experiment tested how the combination of electrons and basic matter leads to more complex biomolecule forms -- and perhaps eventually to life forms. The researchers discuss their work in the Journal of Chemical Physics.

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope could potentially detect the first stars and black holes

Wed, 25 Apr 18 00:16:00 -0700

The first stars in the universe blazed to life about 200 to 400 million years after the big bang. Observing those very first individual stars across such vast distances of space normally would be a feat beyond any space science telescope. However, new theoretical work suggests that under the right circumstances, and with a little luck, NASA's upcoming James Webb Space Telescope will be able to capture light from single stars within that first generation of stars.

Two Hubble views of the same stellar nursery

Thu, 19 Apr 18 00:09:40 -0700

These NASA Hubble Space Telescope images compare two diverse views of the roiling heart of a vast stellar nursery, known as the Lagoon Nebula. The images, one taken in visible and the other in infrared light, celebrate Hubble's 28th anniversary in space.

New research seeks to optimize space travel efficiency

Wed, 18 Apr 18 00:13:40 -0700

Sending a human into space and doing it efficiently presents a galaxy of challenges. Koki Ho, University of Illinois assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, and his graduate students, Hao Chen and Bindu Jagannatha, explored ways to integrate the logistics of space travel by looking at a campaign of lunar missions, spacecraft design, and conducting research, published today in the Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets, to create a framework to optimize fuel and other resources.

Proving what can't be seen

Mon, 16 Apr 18 00:12:50 -0700

New research published in The Astrophysical Journal examines an interesting light source that was captured by four different telescopes each pointing in a different direction in the sky.

Hubble catches a colossal cluster

Fri, 13 Apr 18 00:10:50 -0700

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a massive galaxy cluster glowing brightly in the darkness.

UNH researchers find combination for small data storage and tinier computers

Thu, 12 Apr 18 00:12:00 -0700

It may sound like a futuristic device out of a spy novel, a computer the size of a pinhead, but according to new research from the University of New Hampshire, it might be a reality sooner than once thought. Researchers have discovered that using an easily made combination of materials might be the way to offer a more stable environment for smaller and safer data storage, ultimately leading to miniature computers.

Circumbinary castaways: Short-period binary systems can eject orbiting worlds

Thu, 12 Apr 18 00:10:40 -0700

Planets orbiting 'short-period' binary stars, or stars locked in close orbital embrace, can be ejected off into space as a consequence of their host stars' evolution, according to new research from the University of Washington.

New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

Wed, 11 Apr 18 00:08:50 -0700

A research team led by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, has opened the door to using metals other than cobalt in lithium-based batteries, and have built cathodes with 50 percent more lithium-storage capacity than conventional materials.

New cellular insights in bone development

Fri, 06 Apr 18 00:07:10 -0700

Most of us don't think about our teeth and bones until one aches or breaks. A team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis looked deep within collagen fibers to see how the body forms new bone and teeth, seeking insights into faster bone healing and new biomaterials.

Giant solar tornadoes put researchers in a spin

Thu, 05 Apr 18 00:02:40 -0700

Despite their appearance solar tornadoes are not rotating after all, according to a European team of scientists. A new analysis of these gigantic structures, each one several times the size of the Earth, indicates that they may have been misnamed because scientists have so far only been able to observe them using 2-dimensional images.

New findings from NYU Abu Dhabi and JPL about how 'giant' planets impact neighbors' habitability

Wed, 04 Apr 18 00:02:30 -0700

In a new study published today in The Astrophysical Journal, researchers from New York University Abu Dhabi and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, share new findings about how the presence of 'giant' planets (between 10 and 1000 times as large as the Earth) affects potentially habitable neighbors that would be discovered with the next generation of ground-based and space-borne telescopes.

Hubble makes the first precise distance measurement to an ancient globular star cluster

Wed, 04 Apr 18 00:07:10 -0700

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have for the first time precisely measured the distance to one of the oldest objects in the universe, a collection of stars born shortly after the big bang.

A telescope larger than the Earth makes a sharp image of the formation of black hole jets

Tue, 03 Apr 18 00:01:50 -0700

An international team of researchers has imaged newly forming jets of plasma from a massive black hole with unprecedented accuracy. Radio images made with a combination of telescopes in space and on the ground resolve the jet structure merely a couple of hundred black hole radii or 12 light days from its launching site.

Anticipating the dangers of space
Astronauts and future space tourists face risks from radiation, which can cause illness and injure organs. Researchers from Texas A
