An Astro-archaeological find from the dawn of time

Scientists led by University of Birmingham asteroseismologists have discovered a solar system with 5 Earth-sized planets dating back to the dawn of the Galaxy. Thanks to the NASA Kepler mission, the scientists announced today (Tuesday 27 January 2015) in The Astrophysical Journal the observation of a Sun-like star (Kepler-444) hosting 5 planets with sizes between Mercury and Venus

Vulcan Planets – Inside-Out Formation of Super-Earths

NASAs Kepler telescope has discovered many strange, new worlds. None are stranger than the planetary systems that are commonly seen orbiting very close to their host star. These planets are typically Earth to super-Earth-size

Weird X-Rays Spur Speculation about Dark Matter Detection

Scientists must now decide whether the anomalous signal is truly exotic or has a more mundane provenance When astronomers recently discovered x-rays with no obvious origin, it sparked an exciting hypothesis.

Je suis Musulman; Je suis Charlie

The Grand Mosquee de Paris is a place of history. One of the largest and oldest mosques in France, it has been a symbol of the role of Muslims in French society for decades. In World War II, it functioned as a place of resistance against the Nazi occupation: French Jews were sheltered here and given forged identity papers to allow them to pass as Muslims.

More accurate Saturn positioning helps improve astro navigation

Scientists have used the National Science Foundation’s Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) radio-telescope system and NASA’s Cassini spacecraft to measure the position of Saturn and its family of moons to within about a mile – at a range of nearly a billion miles. This feat improves astronomers’ knowledge of the dynamics of our Solar System and also benefits interplanetary spacecraft navigation and research on fundamental physics.
