ALMA and VLT find too many massive stars in starburst galaxies,...

IMAGE: This artist's impression shows a dusty galaxy in the distant Universe that is forming stars at a rate much higher than in our Milky Way. New ALMA observations have allowed... view more  Credit: ESO/M. Kornmesser Probing the distant Universe a team of scientists, led by University of Edinburgh astronomer Zhi-Yu Zhang, used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to investigate the proportion of massive stars…

Chemical traces from star formation cast light on cosmic history

IMAGE: Fresh insight into intense star formation events- - such as this gigantic star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy -- are challenging scientists' understanding of the Universe. view more  Credit: ESO Fresh insight into how stars are formed is challenging scientists' understanding of the Universe. A study of intense starbursts - events in distant galaxies in which stars are generated hundreds or thousands of…

Globular clusters 4 billion years younger than previously thought

IMAGE: This is a binary star evolution within a globular cluster. view more  Credit: Mark A. Garlick/University of Warwick Once thought to be formed soon after the Universe itself, new research finds Globular Clusters may be only around 9 billion years old Globular clusters age revised following research into the age of binary star systems within the clusters, with both thought to have been born at…

Collective gravity, not Planet Nine, may explain the orbits of ‘detached...

Bumper car-like interactions at the edges of our solar system--and not a mysterious ninth planet--may explain the dynamics of strange bodies called "detached objects," according to a new study. CU Boulder Assistant Professor Ann-Marie Madigan and a team of researchers have offered up a new theory for the existence of planetary oddities like Sedna. This minor planet orbits Earth's sun at a distance of 8…

NASA Astronaut, Crewmates Safely Return to Earth from Space Station

Three members of the International Space Station Expedition 55 crew, including NASA astronaut Scott Tingle, returned to Earth Sunday after 168 days of living and working in low-Earth orbit.

Investigations of the atmosphere by means of unmanned mini-airplanes can contribute significantly to the investigation of the causes of Arctic climate change, as they provide an insight into ground-level air layers that are not monitored by other measuring stations. This is the conclusion…

Supercomputer astronomy: The next generation

IMAGE: With a theoretical peak performance of 3.087 petaflops, ATERUI II is the world's fastest supercomputer for astrophysical simulations. view more  Credit: NAOJ Professor Eiichiro Kokubo, the CfCA Project Director says, "Computational astronomy is gaining popularity in many fields. A new 'telescope' for theoretical astronomy has opened its eyes. I expect that ATERUI II will explore the Universe through more realistic simulations." ATERUI II is a…

Heavier astronauts have higher risk of post-flight eye changes

Bethesda, Md. (May 31, 2018)--New research suggests that changes in the eye that occur during spaceflight may be related to how much an astronaut weighs. The study is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology--Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. Reduced gravity levels (microgravity) in space can lead to spaceflight-associated neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS) in some astronauts. SANS refers to structural changes in the…
