Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
Milky Way May Have Formed 'Inside-Out'
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
New research suggests that stars in the inner regions of the Galactic disc were the first to form, supporting ideas that our Galaxy grew from the inside-out.

'Super-Earths' May Have Oceans & Continents
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
A new model suggests that large exoplanets may have both oceans and exposed continents -- conditions that could lead to an Earth-like stable climate.

The Universe to 1-Percent Accuracy
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) has measured the scale of the universe to an accuracy of one percent. This and future measures at this precision are the key to determining the nature of dark energy.

NASA's Fermi Makes First Gamma-ray Study of a Gravitational Lens
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
An international team of astronomers, using NASA's Fermi observatory, has made the first-ever gamma-ray measurements of a gravitational lens, a kind of natural telescope formed when a rare cosmic alignment allows the gravity of a massive object to bend and amplify light from a more distant source.

Challenging General Relativity
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Astronomers have found a system with three stars that are packed tightly into a space smaller than Earth's orbit. This unique system is helping scientists study the nature of gravity.

Astrobiology Top 10: Astronomers Anticipate 100 Billion Earth-Like Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
As 2013 draws to a close, Astrobiology Magazine highlights the year's top stories. At number 10, researchers have proposed a new method for finding Earth-like planets--a method that could identify as many as 100 billion extrasolar worlds. (Originally published on 04/05/13)

Using an Atmosphere to Weigh a Planet
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
A new study finds that the mass of an exoplanet can be determined solely by looking at the starlight that passes through the planet’s atmosphere.

Nearby Failed Stars May Harbor Planet
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
When studying the nearest pair of brown dwarfs to the Sun, astronomers discovered that a planet-sized object might be keeping them company.

Astronomers Solve Temperature Mystery of Planetary Atmospheres
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
A new study on planetary atmospheres could help in the search for habitable worlds in the Universe.

Where Do Stars End and Brown Dwarfs Begin?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
A new study is shedding light on how small stars can be.
