Jackson Laboratory researchers discover mutation involved in neurodegeneration
A mutation that increases the level of a special class of sphingolipids--molecules important to cell structure and signaling--can lead to neurodegeneration due to problems with neuronal membranes, reports a research team led by Jackson Laboratory Research Scientist Lihong Zhao, Ph.D. and Professor Patsy Nishina, Ph.D.  View News Article (2015-10-07)

Earth-like planets around small stars likely have magnetic fields, aiding chance for life
Earth-like planets orbiting close to small stars probably have magnetic fields that protect them from stellar radiation and help maintain surface conditions that could be conducive to life, according to research from astronomers at the University of Washington. View News Article (2015-09-29)

'Fossils' of galaxies reveal the formation and evolution of massive galaxies
An international team led by researchers at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Z├╝rich observed massive dead galaxies in the universe 4 billion years after the Big Bang with the Subaru Telescope's Multi-Object InfraRed Camera and Spectrograph (MOIRCS).  View News Article (2015-09-28)

Radio telescopes could spot stars hidden in the galactic center
The center of our Milky Way galaxy is a mysterious place. Not only is it thousands of light-years away, it's also cloaked in so much dust that most stars within are rendered invisible.  View News Article (2015-09-23)

Hot, dense material surrounds O-type star with largest magnetic field known
Observations using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory revealed that the unusually large magnetosphere around an O-type star called NGC 1624-2 contains a raging storm of extreme stellar winds and dense plasma that gobbles up X-rays before they can escape into space.  View News Article (2015-09-23)

Using stellar 'twins' to reach the outer limits of the galaxy
Astronomers from the University of Cambridge have developed a new, highly accurate method of measuring the distances between stars, which could be used to measure the size of the galaxy, enabling greater understanding of how it evolved.  View News Article (2015-09-08)

Evidence suggests subatomic particles could defy the standard model
The Standard Model of particle physics, which explains most of the known behaviors and interactions of fundamental subatomic particles, has held up remarkably well over several decades.  View News Article (2015-08-28)
