Hubble gets best view of circumstellar debris disk distorted by planet
Astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to take the most detailed edge on picture to date of a large disk of gas and dust encircling the 20 million-year-old star Beta Pictoris. View News Article (2015-02-23)


Historic Indian sword was masterfully crafted
The master craftsmanship behind Indian swords was highlighted when scientists and conservationists from Italy and the UK joined forces to study a curved single-edged sword called a shamsheer. View News Article (2015-02-11)


VLA finds unexpected 'storm' at galaxy's core
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array (VLA) found surprisingly energetic activity in what they otherwise considered a "boring" galaxy, and their discovery provides important insight on how supermassive black holes can have a catastrophic effect on the galaxies in which they reside. View News Article (2015-02-11)


The Sun's activity in the 18th century was similar to that now
Counting sunspots over time helps in knowing the activity of our star but the two indices used by scientists disagree on dates prior to 1885.  View News Article (2015-02-10)


CAT scan of nearby supernova remnant reveals frothy interior
Cassiopeia A, or Cas A for short, is one of the most well studied supernova remnants in our galaxy. But it still holds major surprises.  View News Article (2015-01-30)


NASA engineer advances new daytime star tracker
Scientists who use high-altitude scientific balloons have high hopes for their instruments in the future. Although the floating behemoths that carry their instruments far into the stratosphere can stay aloft for days on end, data collection typically happens during the night when starlight can be detected. View News Article (2015-01-29)


Some potentially habitable planets began as gaseous, Neptune-like worlds
Two phenomena known to inhibit the potential habitability of planets -- tidal forces and vigorous stellar activity -- might instead help chances for life on certain planets orbiting low-mass stars, University of Washington astronomers have found.  View News Article (2015-01-29)


Lofar's record-sharp image gives astronomers a new view of galaxy M 82
An international team of astronomers led from Chalmers University of Technology has used the giant radio telescope Lofar to create the sharpest astronomical image ever taken at very long radio wavelengths. View News Article (2015-01-29)


The tell-tale signs of a galactic merger
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured this striking view of spiral galaxy NGC 7714. This galaxy has drifted too close to another nearby galaxy and the dramatic interaction has twisted its spiral arms out of shape, dragged streams of material out into space, and triggered bright bursts of star formation. View News Article (2015-01-29)


Ancient star system reveals Earth-sized planets forming near start of universe
A Sun-like star with orbiting planets, dating back to the dawn of the Galaxy, has been discovered by an international team of astronomers.  View News Article (2015-01-28)
