New Telescope Explores Solar System “Outback” In the outer reaches of our solar system lies a mysterious region far more remote and difficult to explore than the Australian outback. It remains the only part of our solar system not visited by spacecraft. Called the Kuiper Belt, this area beyond Neptune is home to the dwarf planets Pluto, Eris, Makemake, and Haumea. It also harbors [...]

NASA Telescope Catches Thunderstorms Hurling Antimatter into Space - Scientists using NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have detected beams of antimatter produced above thunderstorms on Earth, a phenomenon never seen before. Scientists think the antimatter particles were formed in a terrestrial gamma-ray flash (TGF), a brief burst produced inside thunderstorms and shown to be [...]

Closeups of Saturn’s Moon Rhea Show Unprecedented Detail - Newly released by NASA, images of Saturn’s second largest moon Rhea obtained by the Cassini spacecraft show dramatic views of fractures cutting through craters on the moon’s surface, revealing a history of tectonic rumbling. During a flyby In March 2010, the Cassini craft made its closest approach to Rhea’s surface so far, [...]

It’s Cold and Wet at The Moon’s South Pole Frozen water just inches below the Moon’s surface has been confirmed by an international team of scientists. Based on data the group obtained with an instrument aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, NASA chose the impact site for the LCROSS probe, which slammed into the Moon’s surface last year in October in an attempt to kick up [...]

Building Blocks of Life Created in “Impossible” Place NASA-funded scientists have discovered amino acids, a fundamental building block of life, in a meteorite where none were expected. “This meteorite formed when two asteroids collided,” said Dr. Daniel Glavin of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. “The shock of the collision heated it to more than 2,000 degrees [...]

Active Sun, Eclipsed Moon A massive solar storm erupted from the Sun Dec. 6, creating a huge tendril of plasma that stretched across the face of our star. The giant solar eruption created a long filament of plasma (high-temperature gas), which extended an astounding 435,000 miles—nearly twice the distance between the Earth and the Moon—across the Sun's southeastern region, according to [...]

Discovery of Arsenic-Based Life on Earth Could Widen Search for Extraterrestrials Astrobiology research announced by NASA Dec. 2 may change our fundamental concept of what constitutes all known life on Earth—and is causing astronomers to broaden their thought of what life elsewhere may be. Researchers conducting tests in the harsh environment of Mono Lake in California have discovered the [...]

Cassini Finds Warm Cracks On Enceladus - New images and data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft give scientists a unique Saturn-lit view of active fissures through the south polar region of Saturn’s moon Enceladus. They reveal a more complicated web of warm fractures than previously thought. Scientists working jointly with Cassini’s composite infrared spectrometer and its high-resolution [...]

Planet from Another Galaxy Discovered An exoplanet orbiting a star that entered our Milky Way from another galaxy has been detected by a European team of astronomers using a 2.2-meter (87-inch) telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile. The Jupiter-like planet is quite unusual, as it is orbiting a star nearing the end of its life and could be about to be engulfed by it—giving [...]

UK Scientists Create “Mini Big Bangs” in Large Hadron Collider - UK scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC’s) ALICE experiment at CERN are celebrating the LHC’s latest achievement which opens up an entirely new avenue of exploration. The successful collision of lead ions in the accelerator at record energies allows matter to be probed as it would have been in the [...]
