Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
 
The Molecule That Made the Universe
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
04/16/12
Researchers have found a way to see the molecule that likely made the Universe.

Exoplanet Study Suggests our Solar System is the Norm
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
04/14/12
A new study reveals that planetary orbits around Sun-like stars have a tendency to be strongly aligned, similar to the disk-like alignment of the planets in our own solar system.

Dusty Disc Created by Crushed Comets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
04/13/12
The ring of dust around the nearby star Fomalhaut could be created by the collisions of thousands of comets every day.

When Stellar Metallicity Sparks Planet Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
04/09/12
New research predicts the criteria needed for Earth-like planets to form around a star that have one-tenth the metallicity of our Sun. If researchers find small, rocky planets orbiting stars with lower metallicity, it may challenge the presently accepted “core accretion” model of planetary formation.

Planet Starship
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/24/12
New research shows that planets can be tossed out of galaxies at extremely high speeds - up to 30 million miles per hour. These 'runaway' planets would be some of the fastest objects in the galaxy.

The Interiors of Ice Giant Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/23/12
A new study shows that current extimates of ice-giant planetary interiors overstate water's compressibility by as much as 30 percent. The findings could dramatically change our understanding of the physical properties of such worlds.

Some Orbits are More Popular Than Others
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/21/12
New research has provided an explanation for a question that has long puzzled astronomers: why do gas giant planets appear to prefer to occupy certain regions in mature solar systems?

The Infrared Sky
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/19/12
NASA has unveiled a new atlas and catalog of the entire infrared sky showing more than a half billion stars, galaxies and other objects.

Stars with Dusty Disks Should Harbor Earth-like Worlds
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/08/12
Stars with disks of debris around them might be good targets to search for Earth-like planets, researchers say.

A New Model for Planet Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/03/12
A new model could help explain how our solar system formed. The three-dimensional model examines the possibility that planets were created at essentially the same time as the Sun - during the collapse of the pre-solar nebula.
