Six decades of cosmology

"Cosmologists are often wrong but never in doubt," Russian physicist Lev Landau once said. In the early days, astronomers began by observing and modelling stars in different stages of evolution and comparing their findings with theoretical predictions. Stellar modelling uses well-tested physics, with concepts such as hydrostatic equilibrium, law of gravitation, thermodynamics, nuclear reactions etc. Yet in contrast, cosmology is based on a large number…

TRAPPIST-1: Findings show exoplanets made of rock and water

In 2016, a team of researchers led by EU-funded astronomer Michael Gillon at the University of Liege, Belgium, discovered three temperate Earth-sized planets orbiting TRAPPIST-1, an ultra-cool dwarf star just 40 light years from Earth. A few months later, Gillon surprised the world with the discovery of a whole planetary system made of a total of seven planets around this star. A set of new…

Self-driving servicer now baselined for NASA’s Restore-L satellite-servicing demonstration

Officials with NASA's Satellite Servicing Projects Division, or SSPD, have officially baselined the Kodiak system -- formerly known as the Goddard Reconfigurable Solid-state…

NASA TV to Air Russian Spacewalk at the International Space Station

Two veteran Russian cosmonaut spacewalkers will venture outside the International Space Station on Friday, Feb. 2, for a planned 6.5-hour station servicing session. Live coverage of the spacewalk will air on NASA Television and the agency’s website beginning at 9:45 a.m. EST.

Towards a better prediction of solar eruptions

Just one phenomenon may underlie all solar eruptions, according to researchers from the CNRS, École Polytechnique, CEA and INRIA[1] in an article featured on the cover of the February 8 issue of Nature magazine. They have identified the presence of a confining 'cage' in which a magnetic rope[2] forms, causing solar eruptions. It is the resistance of this cage to the attack of the rope…

Earwigs and the art of origami

IMAGE: The 3-D-printed imitation of the earwig wing can be folded as compact as its natural counterpart. However, the automatic folding function so far only works in the simplified prototypes.... view more  Credit: ETH Zurich Every child knows about origami. The skill of this oriental art lies in folding a flat sheet of paper into different - and in some cases highly complex - structures. Examples…
