Swift survey finds 'missing' active galaxies
Seen in X-rays, the entire sky is aglow. Even far away from bright sources, X-rays originating from beyond our galaxy provide a steady glow in every direction. Astronomers have long suspected that the chief contributors to this cosmic X-ray background were dust-swaddled black holes at the centers of active galaxies. View News Article (2011-01-21)

Detection of the cosmic gamma ray horizon: Measures all the light in the universe since the Big Bang
How much light has been emitted by all galaxies since the cosmos began? After all, every photon (particle of light) from ultraviolet to far infrared wavelengths ever radiated by all galaxies that ever existed throughout cosmic history is still speeding through the Universe today.  View News Article (2013-05-24)

Meteorite grains divulge Earth's cosmic roots
The interstellar stuff that became incorporated into the planets and life on Earth has younger cosmic roots than theories predict. View News Article (2009-06-16)

Sun's rotating 'magnet' pulls lightning towards UK
The Sun may be playing a part in the generation of lightning strikes on Earth by temporarily 'bending' the Earth's magnetic field and allowing a shower of energetic particles to enter the upper atmosphere. View News Article (2014-11-20)

H.E.S.S. finds three extremely luminous gamma-ray sources
Wits scientists are part of a multinational team of astronomers working on the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) telescopes that have again demonstrated its excellent capabilities in searching for high-energy gamma rays. View News Article (2015-01-26)

VLA reveals spectacular 'halos' of spiral galaxies
A study of spiral galaxies seen edge-on has revealed that "halos" of cosmic rays and magnetic fields above and below the galaxies' disks are much more common than previously thought.  View News Article (2015-10-14)

Missions to Mars
The European Space Agency (ESA) has chosen the GSI accelerator facility to assess radiation risks that astronauts will be exposed to on a Mars mission. View News Article (2008-04-15)
