Exploding stars help to understand thunderclouds on Earth
How is lightning initiated in thunderclouds? This is difficult to answer - how do you measure electric fields inside large, dangerously charged clouds? (2015-04-22)

Spitzer, OGLE spot planet deep within our galaxy
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has teamed up with a telescope on the ground to find a remote gas planet about 13,000 light-years away, making it one of the most distant planets known. (2015-04-15)

Search for advanced civilizations beyond Earth finds nothing obvious in 100,000 galaxies
After searching 100,000 galaxies for signs of highly advanced extraterrestrial life, a team of scientists using observations from NASA's WISE orbiting observatory has found no evidence of advanced civilizations in them. (2015-04-14)

Accelerating universe? Not so fast
