Magnetar could have boosted explosion of extremely bright supernova
Calculations by scientists have found highly magnetized, rapidly spinning neutron stars called magnetars could explain the energy source behind two extremely unusual stellar explosions. View News Article (2016-03-28)


Caught for the first time: The early flash of an exploding star
NASA's planet hunter, the Kepler space telescope, has captured the brilliant flash of an exploding star's shock wave--what astronomers call the "shock breakout" of a supernova--for the first time in visible light wavelengths.  View News Article (2016-03-22)


Quantum experiments designed by machines
Quantum physicist Mario Krenn and his colleagues in the group of Anton Zeilinger from the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences have developed an algorithm which designs new useful quantum experiments.  View News Article (2016-02-23)


After the discovery: RIT researchers study implications of gravitational waves
Rochester Institute of Technology researchers continue exploring gravitational waves in a series of upcoming papers. Their reports follow the first direct detection of these waves, predicted by Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.  View News Article (2016-02-23)


Astronomer from Moscow detected a new source of intense gamma-radiation in the sky
Analyzing the data collected by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope Maxim Pshirkov (The Sternberg Astronomical Institute, MSU) discovered a new source that confirmed the fact that binary systems with strong colliding stellar winds comprise a separate new population of high-energy gamma-ray sources.  View News Article (2016-02-18)


Mutual mistrust may have added a few X-files to the UFO era
Uncloaking the flying saucer movement in the United States could offer historians a snapshot of Cold War attitudes at work in society, as well as insights into how science communication may be tied to current denialism and conspiracy theory movements, according to a Penn State historian.  View News Article (2016-02-17)


Caught in the act: UW astronomers find a rare supernova 'impostor' in a nearby galaxy
Breanna Binder, a University of Washington postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Astronomy and lecturer in the School of STEM at UW Bothell, spends her days pondering X-rays.  View News Article (2016-02-16)


'Cannibalism' between stars
Stars are born inside a rotating cloud of interstellar gas and dust, which contracts to stellar densities thanks to its own gravity.  View News Article (2016-02-08)


Severe drought no longer caused just by nature
Scientists at the University of Birmingham are calling on drought researchers and managers around the world to consider both human activity and natural phenomena in their battle to preserve increasingly scarce global water supplies. View News Article (2016-02-02)


Stellar parenting: Giant star clusters make new stars by 'adopting' stray cosmic gases
Among the most striking objects in the universe are the dense, glittering swarms of stars known as globular clusters. Astronomers had long thought globular clusters formed their millions of stars in bulk at around the same time, with each cluster's stars having very similar ages, much like twin brothers and sisters. View News Article (2016-01-28)
