Hybrid vehicle rebates produce scant environmental benefits, high cost
Despite major costs to taxpayers in the U.S. and Canada, government programs that offer rebates to hybrid vehicle buyers are failing to produce environmental benefits, a new UBC study says. View News Article (2009-08-04)

Diagnosis murder
Black holes have long been beloved of science fiction writers for their destructive capabilities and peculiar ability to warp space time. Now a study led by researchers from The University of Nottingham reveals the awesome power of supermassive black holes -- the ability to strip massive galaxies of the cool gases required to form new stars, leaving ageing red giants to splutter out of existence...

A Vanishing Star Revisited
Reinhold H'¬§fner of the Munich University Observatory (Germany) is a happy astronomer. View News Article (1999-07-20)

Clouds seen circling supermassive black holes
Astronomers see huge clouds of gas orbiting supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies. Once thought to be a relatively uniform, fog-like ring, the accreting matter instead forms clumps dense enough to intermittently dim the intense radiation blazing forth as these enormous objects condense and consume matter. View News Article (2014-02-20)

CERN scientists predict supernova
A team of theoretical physicists working at CERN and the Technion Institute of Technology in Israel has developed a theory to account for the mysterious gamma ray bursts that come from the depths of the Universe. According to their ideas, gamma ray bursts are linked to supernovae, the cataclysmic explosions of massive stars at the end of their lives. When a new gamma ray burst (GRB 030329) was...

Gamma-ray birth cries suggest massive magnetic engines
Several times a week, astronomers detect the violent death cry of a massive star — an extraordinarily energetic release of gamma rays that takes place in just a matter of seconds to minutes, called a gamma-ray burst (GRB). View News Article (2007-03-09)

Integral reveals new class of 'supergiant' X-ray binary stars
ESA's Integral gamma-ray observatory has discovered a new, highly populated class of X-ray fast 'transient' binary stars, undetected in previous observations. View News Article (2005-11-17)

Black holes, galaxies young and old visible in massive mapping of the night sky
Color images documenting the past 10 billion years of galactic evolution were distributed online this week as part of the first public release of data from a massive project to map a distant region of the universe that combines the efforts of nearly 100 researchers from around the world, including the University of Pittsburgh. View News Article (2007-10-04)

ESA's XMM-Newton gains deep insights into the distant Universe
Using XMM-Newton, astronomers have obtained the world's deepest 'wide screen' X-ray image of the cosmos to date. Their observations show newly discovered clusters of galaxies and provide insights into the structure of the distant Universe" Unlike grains of sand on a beach, matter is not uniformly spread throughout the Universe. Instead, it is concentrated into galaxies like our own which... View News Article (2003-07-14)
