Chandra X-ray images continue to 'wow' astronomers
With the release of new images captured by NASA's Chandra X- ray Observatory showing a luminous spike of X-rays from a giant black hole, a compact nebular resembling a gigantic cosmic crossbow, and a (2000-06-05)

Chandra image shows a powerful connection in the Crab Nebula
Another fabulous discovery from Chandra X-ray Observatory shows a bright ring of fire around the pulsar at the heart of the Crab Nebula. Scientists believe this is a link between the Crab's powerhouse and its light show. (1999-09-29)

Now you see it - now you don't
Near the center of our galaxy, an X-ray source gobbles up part of its companion star: A prodigious eruption of X-rays from near the center of our Milky Way announces the latest round of activity in a binary star system containing a variable star and a compact object. It's put astronomers and observatories on the track of GM Sgr and its companion. (1999-09-22)

Horseshoe crab studies providing new insight into valuable ancient creatures
At the end of May and during June, hundreds of thousands of these prehistoric creatures emerge from the waters of Delaware Bay to lay and fertilize their eggs in the wet sand. On some beaches they will be met by scientists and volunteers who will carefully count their numbers across a series of sampling plots. (1999-06-08)

Scientists Catch Another Gamma-Ray Burster In Visible Light
Several southern hemisphere telescopes observe the latest optical counterpart to a gamma-ray burst reported by BATSE and Beppo-Sax. Scientists estimate the burst originated 10 billion light years away. (1999-05-18)

Next Stop: The Stars
The Chandra X-ray Observatory moved one step closer to launch this week after being installed in a clean room for final tests and other work at the Kennedy Space Center. (1999-02-12)

"Missing" Pulsars Within Exploded Stars Identified By Columbia, Caltech Astronomers
Although astronomers predict that supernova remnants should hold rapidly-spinning radio pulsars, few such stars have been observed. Columbia and Caltech astronomers propose an explanation: The expected pulsars do exist, but they are slowly spinning neutron stars invisible to radio probes and have enormous magnetic fields -- so-called (1999-01-07)

Clemson Researchers Turn Crabshells Into New Product Lines
Clemson University researchers have developed a new process to turn crab shells into natural marketable products. Food and packaging scientists Ronald L. Thomas and Robert F. Testin at Clemson are working with W.E. (Eddie) Gordon, owner of the South Carolina Crab Company in McClellanville, to process crab shells into promising new product lines. (1998-12-18)

Gamma-Ray Bursts: Spindown Of Cosmic Flywheels
A conclusive explanation for the origin of Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRB) as electromagnetic braking of a rapidly rotating neutron star has been developed at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching/Germany (Astronomy & Astrophysics, Vol. 341, Issue 1, L1 - L4). (1998-12-03)

New Optical Detector Could Revolutionize Astronomy
Physicists at Stanford have developed a new optical detector so sensitive that it can clock the arrival of a single particle of light and measure its energy with exceptional precision. When applied to light coming from celestial objects, the device could have a revolutionary impact on optical astronomy. (1998-09-02)

Sunlight Poses Universal Cataract Risk
Exposure to sunlight increases risk of getting cataracts, according to a Johns Hopkins study. (1998-08-26)

Tiny Jamaican Tree Crab Made Big And Fast Evolutionary Leap, Scientists Discover
The world's most land-loving crab, a thin and delicate Jamaican species that spends its entire life in a tree, made a surprisingly rapid evolutionary transformation from its large and rugged ocean-dwelling ancestors, according to genetic research to be published in the May 28 issue of the journal Nature by an international team of biologists. (1998-05-27)

Scientist Finds 2-In-1 Burster; Newly-Discovered Pulsar Goes Off Twice Each Orbit
Scientists have found a new puzzle in the sky, an X-ray pulsar that appears to be in a lopsided orbit that makes it burst twice every (1998-03-25)

Things That Go Bump In The Night - NASA Team Finds That Pulsars Get Wound Up - And Down
Previous observations have shown pulsars accreting matter from nearby stars appear to slow their spin rates gradually. New data show accreting pulsars' spins speed up and slow down at irregular intervals. (1998-01-21)

Gamma-Ray Burst Identification Earns Top Prize
Dr. Jan van Paradijs of the University of Alabama in Huntsville and The University of Amsterdam last week shared in the Bruno Rossi prize awarded annually by the American Astronomical Society (1998-01-12)

New Crab Trap Reduces Turtle Mortality By Almost 100 Percent, Study Finds
Studies of a new crab trap designed by Ohio University researchers suggest it reduces the mortality rate of turtles accidentally caught in recreational traps by almost 100 percent. The research, reported recently in Conservation Biology, addresses a problem affecting diamondback terrapins in coastal areas from Cape Cod to Corpus Christi. (1997-11-25)

New understanding of crab populations may not bring fishermen's delight
Populations, whether fish or people, can be even less predictable than the weather, according to an accurate new model created by researchers from the University of California, Davis, and University of Helsinki, Finland. (1997-05-30)

In Alaska, A New Net Protects Fish
Wildlife Conservation Society biologist develops a new net that allows undersized fish to escape before they are brought on board (1997-01-17)

Biocontrol: The Hit Or Miss Method Of Pest Control?
