New mass map of a distant galaxy cluster is the most precise yet
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have mapped the mass within a galaxy cluster more precisely than ever before. View News Article (2014-07-25)


Hubble Finds Three Surprisingly Dry Exoplanets
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have gone looking for water vapor in the atmospheres of three planets orbiting stars similar to the sun -- and have come up nearly dry. View News Article (2014-07-25)


A New Approach to SETI: Targeting Alien Polluters
Humanity is on the threshold of being able to detect signs of alien life on other worlds. By studying exoplanet atmospheres, we can look for gases like oxygen and methane that only coexist if replenished by life. But those gases come from simple life forms like microbes. What about advanced civilizations? Would they leave any detectable signs? View News Article (2014-07-24)


Highest-precision measurement of water in planet outside the solar system
A team of astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have gone looking for water vapour in the atmospheres of three planets orbiting stars similar to the Sun - and have come up nearly dry.  View News Article (2014-07-24)


Astronomers come up dry in search for water on exoplanets
A team of astronomers has made the most precise measurements yet of water vapour in the atmospheres of Jupiter-like planets beyond our Solar System and found them to be much drier worlds than expected. View News Article (2014-07-24)


Hubble traces the halo of a galaxy more accurately than ever before
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have probed the extreme outskirts of the stunning elliptical galaxy Centaurus A.  View News Article (2014-07-23)


Boosting the Force of Empty Space
Vacuum fluctuations may be among the most counter-intuitive phenomena of quantum physics. Theorists from the Weizmann Institute (Rehovot, Israel) and the Vienna University of Technology propose a way to amplify their force. View News Article (2014-07-23)


NASA's Fermi Finds A 'Transformer' Pulsar
In late June 2013, an exceptional binary containing a rapidly spinning neutron star underwent a dramatic change in behavior never before observed. The pulsar's radio beacon vanished, while at the same time the system brightened fivefold in gamma rays, the most powerful form of light, according to measurements by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. View News Article (2014-07-23)


MIPT-based researcher models Titan's atmosphere
A researcher from MIPT, Prof. Vladimir Krasnopolsky, who heads the Laboratory of High Resolution Infrared Spectroscopy of Planetary Atmospheres, has published the results of the comparison of his model of Titan's atmosphere with the latest data. View News Article (2014-07-23)


NASA's Van Allen Probes Show How to Accelerate Electrons
One of the great, unanswered questions for space weather scientists is just what creates two gigantic donuts of radiation surrounding Earth, called the Van Allen radiation belts. Recent data from the Van Allen Probes -- two nearly identical spacecraft that launched in 2012 -- address this question. View News Article (2014-07-16)
