Chaotic times: When stars loom into the Earth

Astrophysicists are using new methods to simulate the common-envelope phase of binary stars, discovering dynamic irregularities that may help to explain how supernovae evolve.

Gigantic cloud bounces back to our galaxy

New Hubble telescope observations suggest that a high-velocity gas cloud was launched from the outer regions of our own galaxy around 70 million years ago. Now, the cloud is on a return collision course and is expected to plow into the Milky Way's disk in about 30 million years. Astronomers believe it will ignite a spectacular burst of star formation then.

What is the Universe made of?

The mysterious composition of the enormous Universe still remains an unanswered puzzle. Matter known as ordinary, which makes up everything we know, corresponds to only 5% of the Universe. Approximately half of this percentage still eluded detection. Numerical simulations made it possible to predict that the rest of this ordinary matter should be located in the large-scale structures that form the "cosmic web" at temperatures between 100,000 and 10 million..

The phenomena of water escaping from Saturn - Magnetic reconnection explains it all !!

Recently researchers from the Cassini research team have discovered how water ions escape from Saturn's environment. Water ions find a place to exhaust out of the magnetosphere of Saturn at a reconnection point -- basically where magnetic fields from one environment disconnect and reconnect with magnetic fields from another environment.

Globular Clusters Could Nurture Interstellar Civilizations

An ideal place to look for spacefaring civilizations may be within bunches of stars called globular clusters, a study claims—because they’re tightly packed with old stars. The idea is that the stars are within communicating distance of each other, and old enough to host planets that have evolved advanced life forms.

A reliable fuel for space missions

Any kind of mission to space and beyond it needs a reliable power source for a safe and sustained journey. Many sorts of fuel were under research and after various trials the energy produced by radio isotope system seems to be a promising one. The department of energy oak ridge national laboratory (ORNL) Tennessee has completed its first research on specialized fuel to power future deep space missions which is U.S. first production in 30 years.

Euclid - A Mission to Explore the Dark Universe Ready to Take Shape

Euclid is a European Space Agency mission to investigate the profound components of the Dark matter and Dark Energy. It was initially started in 2007 and later went on for numerous refinements. Now it is based on the NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. it is just a start to one of the many such missions to be followed which uncovers the mystery behind why space is not only expanding, but stretching apart at ever-increasing speeds.

Centaurs - Giant comets pose a serious threat to existence on our planet Earth

A significant threat to the civilisation on earth comes from centaurs, giant comets derived from the trans-Neptunian region that reach the inner solar system. The population of these objects in the solar system is increasing at a steady rate which tells us it is time to study and understand about them better.

Ancient Mars was not wet but covered with ice, study claims

Mars may well have had plentiful water billions of years ago—but it was mostly ice, not liquid, a study claims. Researchers say a cold and icy planet billions of years ago better explains water drainage and erosion features seen on the Red Planet today.

Martian moon could disintreagate to become a ring

Mars’ largest moon is slowly falling toward the planet—but rather than smash into it, the moon will probably disintegrate into bits that will form a ring around Mars, scientists predict. The demise of the moon Phobos will occur in an estimated 20 million to 40 million years, leaving a ring that will last for anywhere from one million to 100 million years, according to the two earth scientists at the University of California, Berkeley.
