Martian atmosphere behaves as oneNew research using a decade of data from ESA's Mars Express has found clear signs of the complex martian atmosphere acting as a single, interconnected system, with processes occurring at low and [...]

X-ray data may be first evidence of a star devouring a planetFor nearly a century, astronomers have puzzled over the curious variability of young stars residing in the Taurus-Auriga constellation some 450 light years from Earth. One star in particular has drawn [...]

Team creates high-fidelity images of Sun's atmosphereIn 1610, Galileo redesigned the telescope and discovered Jupiter's four largest moons. Nearly 400 years later, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope used its powerful optics to look deep into space— [...]

NASA's new mini satellite will study Milky Way's haloAstronomers keep coming up short when they survey "normal" matter, the material that makes up galaxies, stars and planets. A new NASA-sponsored CubeSat mission called HaloSat, deployed from [...]

Scientists have discovered never-before-detected, fine-grained structures in the Sun's outer atmosphere, or corona. The team imaged this critical region in detail using sophisticated software tec [...]

Planck: Final data from the mission lends support to the standard cosmological modelWith its increased reliability and its data on the polarization of relic radiation, the Planck mission corroborates the standard cosmological model with unrivaled precision for these parameters, even [...]

Finding a planet with a 10 year orbit in just a few monthsTo discover the presence of a planet around stars, astronomers wait until it has completed three orbits. However, this effective technique has its drawbacks since it cannot confirm the presence of pla [...]

Supersharp images from new VLT adaptive opticsESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) has achieved first light with a new adaptive optics mode called laser tomography -- and has captured remarkably sharp test images of the planet Neptune and other [...]

The largest recorded meteorite to strike the United States in 21 years fell into NOAA's Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and researchers have recovered what are believed to be pieces of t [...]
