Light in a spin
Light must travel in a straight line and at a constant speed, or so the laws of nature suggest. Now, researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg have demonstrated that laser light traveling along a helical path through space, can accelerate and decelerate as it spins into the distance.  View News Article (2015-04-15)


First signs of self-interacting dark matter?
Using the MUSE instrument on ESO's VLT in Chile, along with images from Hubble in orbit, a team of astronomers studied the simultaneous collision of four galaxies in the galaxy cluster Abell 3827. View News Article (2015-04-15)


Potential signs of 'interacting' dark matter suggest it is not completely dark after all
Astronomers believe they might have observed the first potential signs of dark matter interacting with a force other than gravity. View News Article (2015-04-15)


Spitzer, OGLE spot planet deep within our galaxy
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has teamed up with a telescope on the ground to find a remote gas planet about 13,000 light-years away, making it one of the most distant planets known. View News Article (2015-04-15)


Accelerating universe? Not so fast
Certain types of supernovae, or exploding stars, are more diverse than previously thought, a University of Arizona-led team of astronomers has discovered. View News Article (2015-04-13)


An exoplanet with an infernal atmosphere
As part of the PlanetS National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), astronomers from the Universities of Geneva (UNIGE) and Bern, Switzerland, have come to measure the temperature of the atmosphere of an exoplanet with unequalled precision, by crossing two approaches. View News Article (2015-04-13)


Our Sun came late to the Milky Way's star-birth party
In one of the most comprehensive multi-observatory galaxy surveys yet, astronomers find that galaxies like our Milky Way underwent a stellar "baby boom," churning out stars at a prodigious rate, about 30 times faster than today. View News Article (2015-04-10)


NASA study finds small solar eruptions can have profound effects on unprotected planets
While no one yet knows what's needed to build a habitable planet, it's clear that the interplay between the sun and Earth is crucial for making our planet livable - a balance between a sun that provides energy and a planet that can protect itself from the harshest solar emissions. View News Article (2015-04-10)


Seasonal, year-long cycles seen on the Sun
Our sun is constantly changing. It goes through cycles of activity - swinging between times of relative calm and times when frequent explosions on its surface can fling light, particles and energy out into space. View News Article (2015-04-09)


Complex organic molecules discovered in infant star system
The new ALMA observations reveal that the protoplanetary disc surrounding the young star MWC 480 [1] contains large amounts of methyl cyanide (CH3CN), a complex carbon-based molecule. There is enough methyl cyanide around MWC 480 to fill all of Earth's oceans. View News Article (2015-04-08)
