Hubble Finds Three Surprisingly Dry Exoplanets
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have gone looking for water vapor in the atmospheres of three planets orbiting stars similar to the sun -- and have come up nearly dry. (2014-07-25)

Highest-precision measurement of water in planet outside the solar system
A team of astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have gone looking for water vapour in the atmospheres of three planets orbiting stars similar to the Sun - and have come up nearly dry. (2014-07-24)

Hubble traces the halo of a galaxy more accurately than ever before
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have probed the extreme outskirts of the stunning elliptical galaxy Centaurus A. (2014-07-23)

NASA's Fermi Finds A 'Transformer' Pulsar
In late June 2013, an exceptional binary containing a rapidly spinning neutron star underwent a dramatic change in behavior never before observed. The pulsar's radio beacon vanished, while at the same time the system brightened fivefold in gamma rays, the most powerful form of light, according to measurements by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.

Lives and deaths of sibling stars
This beautiful star cluster, NGC 3293, is found 8000 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Carina (The Keel). (2014-07-23)

Australian researchers pioneer a 'Google street view' of galaxies
A new home-grown instrument based on bundles of optical fibres is giving Australian astronomers the first 'Google street view' of the cosmos - incredibly detailed views of huge numbers of galaxies. (2014-07-23)

Transiting Exoplanet with Longest Known Year
Astronomers have discovered a transiting exoplanet with the longest known year. Kepler-421b circles its star once every 704 days. (2014-07-22)

Mysterious dance of dwarfs may force a cosmic rethink
The discovery that many small galaxies throughout the universe do not 'swarm' around larger ones like bees do but 'dance' in orderly disc-shaped orbits is a challenge to our understanding of how the universe formed and evolved. (2014-07-21)

Out of An Hours-long Explosion, A Stand-In For The First Stars
Astronomers analyzing a long-lasting blast of high-energy light observed in 2013 report finding features strikingly similar to those expected from an explosion from the universe's earliest stars. (2014-07-14)

New Technology Illuminates Colder Objects in Deep Space
Too cool and faint, many objects in the universe are impossible to detect with visible light. Now a McCormick team has refined a new technology that could make these colder objects more visible, paving the way for enhanced exploration of deep space. (2014-07-10)
