Mar. 24, 2016 — The 2RXS catalogue is the second publicly released ROSAT catalogue of point-like sources obtained from the ROSAT all-sky survey observations performed between June 1990 and August 1991, and is an ... read more

Mar. 24, 2016 — Every now and then large sun storms strike the Earth where they cause aurora and in rare cases power cuts. These events are, however, nothing compared to the apocalyptic destruction we would ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Research has found new persuasive evidence that could help solve a longstanding mystery in astrophysics: why did the pace of star formation in the universe slow down some 11 billion years ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Solar storms trigger Jupiter's intense 'Northern Lights' by generating a new X-ray aurora that is eight times brighter than normal and hundreds of times more energetic than ... read more

Mar. 18, 2016 — Astronomers who created a global network of robotelescopes MASTER detected that a bright star TYC 2505-672-1 has actually faded significantly. That finding led to new questions: so, the scientists ... read more

Mar. 17, 2016 — For more than ten years the H.E.S.S. observatory in Namibia, run by an international collaboration of 42 institutions in 12 countries, has been mapping the center of our galaxy in very-high-energy ... read more

Mar. 14, 2016 — Using some of the largest supercomputers available, physics researchers have produced one of the largest simulations ever to help explain one of physics most daunting ... read more

What Dark Matter Might Be

Mar. 14, 2016 — There are indications that we might never see the universe's mysterious dark matter. Now researchers turn this somehow depressing scenario into an advantage and propose a new model for what dark ... read more

Mar. 11, 2016 — Personalizing the assessment of cancer risk due to space radiation may let NASA pinpoint astronauts who could withstand higher doses, removing one barrier to a trip to ... read more

Mar. 10, 2016 — Astronomers have detected the faintest millimeter-wave source ever observed. By accumulating millimeter-waves from faint objects throughout the Universe, the team finally determined that such objects ... read more

Mar. 8, 2016 — NASA recently selected a miniaturized version of the original X-ray camera to fly as a CubeSat mission to study Earth's magnetic cusps -- regions in the magnetic cocoon around our planet near ... read more

Mar. 8, 2016 — When cosmic rays hit the Earth’s atmosphere, their high-energy primary particles generate an “air shower” of secondary particles. These cascades of particles provide information on the physical ... read more

Mar. 2, 2016 — Astronomers for the first time have detected repeating short bursts of radio waves from an enigmatic source that is likely located well beyond the edge of our Milky Way galaxy. The findings indicate ... read more

Mar. 2, 2016 — LOFAR, the big international radio telescope, can now be used as a particle detector. Astronomers made a new model to determine the type and cosmic source of incoming cocmic ... read more

Feb. 24, 2016 — We live in a universe dominated by unseen matter, and on the largest scales, galaxies and everything they contain are concentrated into filaments that stretch around the edge of enormous voids. ... read more

Feb. 23, 2016 — On September 14, 2015, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detected gravitational waves from the merger of two black holes 29 and 36 times the mass of the Sun. Such an ... read more

Feb. 19, 2016 — Although the star-covered night sky is regarded by many as a synonym of serenity, the cosmos is in fact a rather hostile place. It hosts many extreme environments that would instantaneously eradicate ... read more

Feb. 18, 2016 — Incredibly dense and powerful objects beyond our Milky Way Galaxy may prevent the escape of high-energy gamma rays that accompany the production of the cosmic neutrinos detected on Earth by the ... read more

Feb. 17, 2016 — Astronomers have discovered a new source that confirmed the fact that binary systems with strong colliding stellar winds comprise a separate new population of high-energy gamma-ray ... read more

Feb. 10, 2016 — A newly formed star lights up the surrounding clouds in this new image from ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile. Dust particles in the vast clouds that surround the star HD 97300 diffuse its ... read more
