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)


New theory linking brain activity to brain shape could throw light on human consciousness
UNSW Australia scientists have shown that complex human brain activity is governed by the same simple universal rule of nature that can explain other phenomena such as the beautiful sound of a finely crafted violin or the spots on a leopard.  View News Article (2016-01-27)


Russian volunteer programmers helped the Lomonosov MSU to find the mysterious black holes
The term "black holes" was first used in the mid-20th century by theoretical physicist John Wheeler. This term denotes relativistic supermassive objects that are invisible in all electromagnetic waves, but a great number of astrophysical effects confirms their existence. View News Article (2016-01-25)


'Space Warps' and other citizen science projects reap major dividends for astrophysic
Thanks to the Internet, amateur volunteers known as "citizen scientists" can readily donate their time and effort to science--in fields ranging from medicine to zoology to astrophysics. The astrophysics project Space Warps offers a compelling example of why citizen science has become such a popular tool and how valuable it can be. View News Article (2016-01-18)


Rotational clock for stars needs recalibration
New work from a team of astronomers led by Carnegie's Jennifer van Saders indicates that one recently developed method for determining a star's age needs to be recalibrated for stars that are older than our Sun. View News Article (2016-01-05)


Strong magnetic fields discovered in majority of stars
An international group of astronomers led by the University of Sydney has discovered strong magnetic fields are common in stars, not rare as previously thought, which will dramatically impact our understanding of how stars evolve. View News Article (2016-01-05)


Titan helps researchers explore explosive star scenarios
Exploding stars may seem like an unlikely yardstick for measuring the vast distances of space, but astronomers have been mapping the universe for decades using these stellar eruptions, called supernovas, with surprising accuracy. View News Article (2015-12-09)


The Sun could release flares 1000x greater than previously recorded
The Sun demonstrates the potential to superflare, new research into stellar flaring suggests.  View News Article (2015-12-03)


Missing link found between turbulence in collapsing star and hypernova, gamma-ray burst
A supercomputer simulation of a mere 10 milliseconds in the collapse of a massive star into a neutron star proves that these catastrophic events, often called hypernovae, can generate the enormous magnetic fields needed to explode the star and fire off bursts of gamma rays visible halfway across the universe. View News Article (2015-12-01)
