New data from Antarctic detector firms up cosmic neutrino sighting
Researchers using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have sorted through the billions of subatomic particles that zip through its frozen cubic-kilometer-sized detector each year to gather powerful new evidence in support of 2013 observations confirming the existence of cosmic neutrinos. View News Article (2015-08-21)


New theory: If we want to detect dark matter we might need a different approach
Physicists suggest a new way to look for dark matter: They beleive that dark matter particles annihilate into so-called dark radiation when they collide. If true, then we should be able to detect the signals from this radiation. View News Article (2015-08-20)


Sibling stars

First detection of lithium from an exploding star
The chemical element lithium has been found for the first time in material ejected by a nova. Observations of Nova Centauri 2013 made using telescopes at ESO's La Silla Observatory, and near Santiago in Chile, help to explain the mystery of why many young stars seem to have more of this chemical element than expected.  View News Article (2015-07-29)


Unexpectedly little black-hole monsters rapidly suck up surrounding matter
Using the Subaru Telescope, researchers at the Special Astrophysical Observatory in Russia and Kyoto University in Japan have found evidence that enigmatic objects in nearby galaxies - called ultra-luminous X-ray sources (ULXs) - exhibit strong outflows that are created as matter falls onto their black holes at unexpectedly high rates. View News Article (2015-06-30)


ALMA weighs supermassive black hole at center of distant spiral galaxy
Supermassive black holes lurk at the center of every large galaxy. These cosmic behemoths can be millions to billions of times more massive than the Sun. View News Article (2015-06-19)


Lost in space
Although the Universe may seem spacious most galaxies are clumped together in groups or clusters and a neighbour is never far away.  View News Article (2015-06-11)


Rubber from dandelions
Dandelions deliver a desirable product: rubber. This is why the robust and undemanding plant has become the focus of attention of the rubber-producing industry.  View News Article (2015-04-28)


Astronomers find runaway galaxies
We know of about two dozen runaway stars, and have even found one runaway star cluster escaping its galaxy forever. Now, astronomers have spotted 11 runaway galaxies that have been flung out of their homes to wander the void of intergalactic space. View News Article (2015-04-24)
