Dust Grains Could Be Remnants of Stellar Explosions Billions of Years Ago

Mar. 8, 2016 — Microscopic dust particles have been found in meteoritic material on Earth, particles that were likely formed in stellar explosions that occurred long before the creation of our star, the sun. ... read more

Mar. 2, 2016 — In a huge new image clouds of crimson gas are illuminated by rare, massive stars that have only recently ignited and are still buried deep in thick dust clouds. These scorching-hot, very young stars ... read more

Feb. 12, 2016 — University of Washington astronomers have identified a rare type of supernova 'impostor' in a nearby galaxy, with implications for how scientists look at the short, complex lives of massive ... 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
