Detection of Water Vapor in the Atmosphere of a Hot Jupiter
Although liquid water covers a majority of Earth's surface, scientists are still searching for planets outside of our solar system that contain water. View News Article (2014-03-03)


SMA Unveils How Small Cosmic Seeds Grow Into Big Stars
New images from the Smithsonian's Submillimeter Array (SMA) telescope provide the most detailed view yet of stellar nurseries within the Snake nebula. These images offer new insights into how cosmic seeds can grow into massive stars. View News Article (2014-02-27)


Hubble Monitors Supernova In Nearby Galaxy M82
This is a Hubble Space Telescope composite image of a supernova explosion designated SN 2014J in the galaxy M82. At a distance of approximately 11.5 million light-years from Earth it is the closest supernova of its type discovered in the past few decades. View News Article (2014-02-27)


LUX dark matter results confirmed
A new calibration of the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) dark matter detector brought a 10-fold increase in calibration accuracy, confirming findings announced last October from the instrument's first 90-day run. If low-mass "WIMP" particles had passed through the detector, LUX would have found them.  View News Article (2014-02-21)


NuSTAR helps untangle how stars explode
For the first time, an international team of astrophysicists, including Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists, have unraveled how stars blow up in supernova explosions. View News Article (2014-02-20)


Rocks around the clock: asteroids pound tiny star
Scientists using CSIRO's Parkes telescope and another telescope in South Africa have found evidence that a tiny star called PSR J0738-4042 is being pounded by asteroids - large lumps of rock from space. View News Article (2014-02-20)


When a black hole shreds a star, a bright flare tells the story
Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz uses computer simulations to explore the universe's most violent events, so when the first detailed observations of a star being ripped apart by a black hole were reported in 2012 (Gezari et al., Nature), he was eager to compare the data with his simulations. View News Article (2014-02-19)


Diamonds in the tail of the scorpion
Messier 7, also known as NGC 6475, is a brilliant cluster of about 100 stars located some 800 light-years from Earth. View News Article (2014-02-19)


How Stellar Death Can Lead To Twin Celestial Jets
Astronomers know that while large stars can end their lives as violently cataclysmic supernovae, smaller stars end up as planetary nebulae - colorful, glowing clouds of dust and gas. In recent decades these nebulae, once thought to be mostly spherical, have been observed to often emit powerful, bipolar jets of gas and dust. View News Article (2014-02-13)


Australians discover oldest star
A team led by astronomers at The Australian National University has discovered the oldest known star in the Universe, which formed shortly after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago. View News Article (2014-02-10)
