Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
 
LHC Could Be the First Time Machine
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/17/11
A new theory predicts that the Large Hadron Collider could be the first machine capable of causing matter to travel backwards in time. The researchers who originated the theory admit it's a 'long shot', but it still fits within the laws of physics.

Assumptions about Exo-Oceans
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/04/11
Some estimates indicate that 25% of Sun-like stars have Earth-like planets. A new study now shows that these planets are almost certain to have oceans if they are located in the right temperature zone around their host stars.

Planet Formation in Action
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/24/11
Astronomers have gathered new data from a disc of material around a young star that is in the early stages of planetary formation. The study can help astrobiologists understand how planets form and where best to search for habitable extrasolar worlds.

The Solar Family
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/21/11
NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft has pieced together the first portrait of the Solar System - from the inside looking out. The image compliments a similar portrait captured by Voyager 1 and taken from the outside of the Solar System looking inward.

A Radio Eye's Clear Vision of Our Universe
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/21/11
New measurements from astronomy's most precise telescope are expanding our knowledge of many areas of space science, including the search for extrasolar planets.

Direct Images of Disks Illuminate Planet Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/19/11
Astronomers have directly imaged two young stars that reveal host planets may have formed from their disks. The finding will help scientists understand planet formation, an essential step in determining where to search for habitable, Earth-like worlds.

Distortions in the Gravitational Lens
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/12/11
New research shows that an optic effect called 'strong gravitational lensing' is distorting the number and shape of the Universe's most distant galaxies. The study could have implications for astrobiologists who are studying the nature of galactic environments in the Universe and the possible locations in which to search for habitable worlds.

Planet Provokes a Star's Pulse
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/22/11
Astronomers have discovered a giant planet orbiting a delta Scuti pulsating star. The study provides new insight into the types of planetary systems that exist in the universe.

Inclined Orbits Prevail
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/18/11
New research shows that exoplanetary systems with highly tilted orbits might be typical rather than rare. The study provides important information for testing models of how the orbits of planetary systems evolve and could help astrobiologists better understand where and how to search for new planets.

Revelations about Galileo, Bruno, and Aliens
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/17/11
The Catholic Church and scientists have a history of clashing, but according to Vatican astronomers, some of the stories of Church persecution are distortions of the truth – more gossip than Gospel.
