Hubble observes one-of-a-kind star nicknamed 'Nasty'
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered surprising new clues about a hefty, rapidly aging star whose behavior has never been seen before in our Milky Way galaxy. View News Article (2015-05-22)


Using a sounding rocket to help calibrate NASA's SDO
Watching the sun is dangerous work for a telescope. Solar instruments in space naturally degrade over time, bombarded by a constant stream of solar particles that can cause a film of material to adhere to the optics. View News Article (2015-05-20)


The dreadful beauty of Medusa
This beautiful planetary nebula is named after a dreadful creature from Greek mythology -- the Gorgon Medusa. View News Article (2015-05-20)


Retirement in the suburbs
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, collected a census of young white dwarf stars beginning their migration from the crowded centre of an ancient star cluster to its less populated outskirts. View News Article (2015-05-15)


Astrophysicists prepare weather forecasts for planets beyond our solar system
"Cloudy for the morning, turning to clear with scorching heat in the afternoon." While this might describe a typical late-summer day in many places on Earth, it may also apply to planets outside our solar system, according to a new study by an international team of astrophysicists from the University of Toronto, York University and Queen's University Belfast. View News Article (2015-05-13)


The dark side of star clusters
Globular star clusters are huge balls of thousands of stars that orbit most galaxies. They are among the oldest known stellar systems in the Universe and have survived through almost the entire span of galaxy growth and evolution. View News Article (2015-05-13)


NuSTAR provides explosive evidence for supernova asymmetry
New results from the NASA NuSTAR telescope show that a supernova close to our galaxy experienced a single-sided explosion. View News Article (2015-05-11)


Space lab to elucidate how liquid cocktails mix
What does space experimentation have in common with liquid cocktails? Both help in understanding what happens when multiple fluids are mixed together and subjected to temperature change - a phenomenon ubiquitous in nature and industrial applications such as oil fluids contained in natural reservoirs. View News Article (2015-05-11)


UNH scientists show 'breaking waves' perturb Earth's magnetic field
The underlying physical process that creates striking "breaking wave" cloud patterns in our atmosphere also frequently opens the gates to high-energy solar wind plasma that perturbs Earth's magnetic field, or magnetosphere, which protects us from cosmic radiation.  View News Article (2015-05-11)


Lopsided star explosion holds the key to other supernova mysteries
New observations of a recently exploded star are confirming supercomputer model predictions made at Caltech that the deaths of stellar giants are lopsided affairs in which debris and the stars' cores hurtle off in opposite directions. View News Article (2015-05-08)
