  • Hubble Spots Farthest Lensing Galaxy Yet
    Sometimes there’s a chance alignment — faraway in the universe, where objects are separated by unimaginable distances measured in billions of light-years — when a galaxy cluster in the foreground intersects light from an even more distant object. The conjunction plays visual tricks, where the galaxy cluster acts like a lens, appearing to magnify and bend […]
  • Surprise! Classical Novae Produce Gamma Rays
    In a classical nova, a white dwarf siphons material off a companion star, building up a layer on its surface until the temperature and pressure are so high (a process which can take tens of thousands of years) that its hydrogen begins to undergo nuclear fusion, triggering a runaway reaction that detonates the accumulated gas. […]
  • NASA Announces Science Instruments for Mars 2020 Rover Expedition to the Red Planet
    NASA announced the winners of the high stakes science instrument competition to fly aboard the Mars 2020 rover at a briefing held today, Thursday, July 31, at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. The 2020 rover’s instruments goals are to search for signs of organic molecules and past life and help pave the way for […]
