Hawking’s last paper co-authored with ERC grantee posits new cosmology

Professor Stephen Hawking's final theory on the origin of the universe, which he worked on in collaboration with Professor Thomas Hertog from KU Leuven, has been published this week in the Journal of High-Energy Physics. Professor Hertog, whose work has been supported by the EU's European Research Council, first announced the new theory at a conference in Cambridge in July of last year, organised on…

NASA TV to Air US Spacewalk at International Space Station

NASA astronauts will embark on a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk Thursday, June 14, during which they will install new high-definition cameras to capture spacecraft docking with the International Space Station, including new American-made spacecraft with scheduled test flights later this year.

NASA to Air Launch of Russian Cargo Ship, Docking at International...

Loaded with almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies, a Russian Progress cargo spacecraft is scheduled to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 1:14 p.m. EST Friday, Nov. 16 (12:14 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, Baikonur time), to resupply the International Space Station.

Mystery of coronae around supermassive black holes deepens

Researchers from RIKEN and JAXA have used observations from the ALMA radio observatory located in northern Chile and managed by an international consortium including the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) to measure, for the first time, the strength of magnetic fields near two supermassive black holes at the centers of an important type of active galaxies. Surprisingly, the strengths of the magnetic fields do…

NASA gets an infrared ‘baby picture’ of Tropical Storm Kristy

IMAGE: On Aug. 7 at 5:25 a.m. EDT (0925 UTC) NASA's Aqua satellite found coldest temperatures of strongest thunderstorms (red) in Tropical Storm Kristy were as cold as or colder than... view more  Credit: Credits: NRL/NASA Tropical Storm Kristy formed after John and Ileana in the Eastern Pacific Ocean today, Aug 7, but it is far to the west of John and Ileana and no threat…

‘Oumuamua likely came from a binary star system

New research finds that 'Oumuamua, the rocky object identified as the first confirmed interstellar asteroid, very likely came from a binary star system. "It's remarkable that we've now seen for the first time a physical object from outside our Solar System," says lead author Dr Alan Jackson, a postdoc at the Centre for Planetary Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough in Ontario, Canada. A…

IMAGE: This image shows the galaxy cluster MACS J1149.5+2223 taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope; the inset image is the very distant galaxy MACS1149-JD1, seen as it was 13.3 billion... view more  Credit: ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO), NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, W. Zheng (JHU), M. Postman (STScI), the CLASH Team, Hashimoto et al. An international team of astronomers used ALMA to observe a distant galaxy called MACS1149-JD1.…

Are we running out of helium (video)?

IMAGE: Just like certain animals here on Earth, there are endangered elements. For example, we're constantly losing helium, that's way too expensive to create in the laboratory and that's bad news... view more  Credit: The American Chemical Society WASHINGTON, March 14, 2019 -- Did you realize that just like certain animals here on Earth, there are endangered elements, too? For example, we're constantly losing helium, a…

NASA’s Webb Telescope to make a splash in search for interstellar...

Water is crucial for life, but how do you make water? Cooking up some H2O takes more than mixing hydrogen and oxygen. It requires the special conditions found deep within frigid molecular clouds, where dust shields against destructive ultraviolet light and aids chemical reactions. NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will peer into these cosmic reservoirs to gain new insights into the origin and evolution of…

Satellites track vanishing Antarctic ice

Monitoring Antarctica from space has revealed how its ice is being lost to the oceans, providing crucial insight into the continent's response to a warming climate. Scientists from the University of Leeds, the University of California San Diego and University of Maryland reviewed decades of satellite measurements to reveal how and why Antarctica's glaciers, ice shelves, and sea ice are changing. Their report, published today…
