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.

Researchers at the IAC participate in the discovery of clusters of...

With observations made with the Herschel Space Observatory, with the APEX antenna and with the ALMA interferometer it has been possible to observe the formation of a cluster of galaxies in deep space, when the Universe was only a tenth as old as it is now. The European Space Agency, ESA, launched the Herschel Space Observatory in 2009. It was the first observatory able to…

NASA peers into the rainfall of Eastern Pacific’ Tropical Storm Aletta

Tropical Storm Aletta is spinning more than 440 miles off the southwestern coast of Mexico and using satellite data, NASA peered into the storm to uncover where the heaviest rain was falling. Early on June 6, Tropical Depression Two-E was upgraded to Tropical Storm Aletta. This is the first tropical storm of the 2018 eastern North Pacific season. Aletta was located well southwest of Mexico.…

The disc of the Milky Way is bigger than we thought

IMAGE: The coloured region is the previously known Galactic disk. The present work has extended its limits much farther away: there is a probability 99.7 percent or 95.4 percent respectively that... view more  Credit: R. Hurt, SSC-Caltech, NASA/JPL-Caltech. Spiral galaxies such as the Milky Way have discs which are really thin, in which the major fraction of their stars are found. These discs are limited in…

Researchers discover a system with three Earth-sized planets

The information about these new exoplanets has been obtained from the data collected by the K2 mission of NASA's Kepler satellite, which started in November 2013. The work, which will be published in the Monthly Notices of the magazine Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS), reveals the existence of two new planetary systems detected from the eclipses they produce in the stellar light of their respective stars.…

Researchers from the UPC and the IAC discover one of the...

Neutron stars (often called pulsars) are stellar remnants that have reached the end of their evolutionary life: they result from the death of a star of between 10 and 30 Solar masses. Despite their small size (about 20 kilometres in diameter), neutron stars have more mass than the Sun, so they are extremely dense. Researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Canary…

How solar prominences vibrate

IMAGE: Image of the Sun from GONG telescopes network in Hα filter. Prominences are seen as dark filaments over the solar disk. The arrow indicates a prominence that oscillates. The diagram... view more  Credit: Manuel Luna (IAC). When we look at the surface of the Sun the solar prominences are seen as dark filaments that populate the disk or as a blaze of plasma above it.…
