Examining how terrestrial life's building blocks may have first formed
How did life begin? This is one of the most fundamental questions scientists puzzle over. To address it, they have to look not just back to the primordial Earth, but out into space. Now, scientists propose in the Journal of the American Chemical Society a new set of cosmic chemical reactions that could have contributed to the formation of life on our planet.  View News Article (2016-02-04)


Galactic center's gamma rays unlikely to originate from dark matter, evidence shows
Bursts of gamma rays from the center of our galaxy are not likely to be signals of dark matter but rather other astrophysical phenomena such as fast-rotating stars called millisecond pulsars, according to two new studies, one from a team based at Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and another based in the Netherlands. View News Article (2016-02-04)


A violent wind blown from the heart of a galaxy tells the tale of a merger
An international team led by a researcher from Hiroshima University has succeeded in revealing the detailed structure of a massive ionized gas outflow streaming from the starburst galaxy NGC 6240.  View News Article (2016-02-04)


Hubble sees monstrous cloud boomerang back to our galaxy
Hubble Space Telescope astronomers are finding that the old adage "what goes up must come down" even applies to an immense cloud of hydrogen gas outside our Milky Way galaxy. The invisible cloud is plummeting toward our galaxy at nearly 700,000 miles per hour. View News Article (2016-02-01)


The Milky Way's clean and tidy galactic neighbor
IC 1613 is a dwarf galaxy in the constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster). This VST image shows the galaxy's unconventional beauty, all scattered stars and bright pink gas, in great detail. View News Article (2016-01-27)


Digital enhancement of cryoEM photographs of protein nanocrystals
When cryoEM images are obtained from protein nanocrystals the images themselves can appear to be devoid of any contrast.  View News Article (2016-01-25)


Russian volunteer programmers helped the Lomonosov MSU to find the mysterious black holes
The term "black holes" was first used in the mid-20th century by theoretical physicist John Wheeler. This term denotes relativistic supermassive objects that are invisible in all electromagnetic waves, but a great number of astrophysical effects confirms their existence. View News Article (2016-01-25)


Dark 'noodles' may lurk in the Milky Way
Invisible structures shaped like noodles, lasagne sheets or hazelnuts could be floating around in our Galaxy radically challenging our understanding of gas conditions in the Milky Way. View News Article (2016-01-22)


The turbulent birth of a quasar
The most luminous galaxy known in the Universe - the quasar W2246-0526, seen when the Universe was less than 10% of its current age - is so turbulent that it is in the process of ejecting its entire supply of star-forming gas, according to new observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).  View News Article (2016-01-18)


Signs of second largest black hole in the Milky Way
A team of astronomers led by Tomoharu Oka, a professor at Keio University in Japan, has found an enigmatic gas cloud, called CO-0.40-0.22, only 200 light years away from the center of the Milky Way. View News Article (2016-01-18)
