Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
 
Spitzer in the Sky, with Diamonds
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/01/08
Researchers have developed a strategy for finding diamonds in space that can be 25,000 times smaller than a grain of sand. These tiny particles could provide insight into the distribution of molecules in the Universe that are important for the origin of life.

Amino Acid Ingredients Found in Distant Galaxy
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/18/08
In the ultra-bright galaxy Arp 220, radio astronomers have for the first time detected all the ingredients of an amino acid beyond the Milky Way. The study confirms that familiar carbon chemistry exists in the distant universe, and could help constrain the search for life.

Flight of the Moth
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/15/08
A dusty disk that resembles the shape of a moth is providing new information about how planetary systems form and evolve.

Planets, Part Two
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/11/08
Astronomers have spotted a new class of star -- those that support the formation of a second generation of planets long after the stars themselves have formed. The finding is providing scientists with new information about the behavior of planet-forming stars.

Organic Dust Up
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/07/08
Astronomers have found complex organic molecules in a disk of red dust surrounding a distant star. The star is in the late stages of planet formation, suggesting that the basic building blocks of life may be common in planetary systems.

When Planets Were Born
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/04/08
Researchers have dated the earliest step of planet formation in our solar system. Understanding the processes of solar system formation can give us insight into Earth's history, and indicate how Earth-like planets may form elsewhere in the universe.

Solar System Flip Flop
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
12/20/07
Scientists have determined that the planets in our Solar System were not always in the same order. The findings could have implications in understanding how the planets and our Solar System formed, and ultimately how it became habitable for life as we know it.

Radio Astrobiology: Looking Beyond
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
12/17/07
In Astrobiology Magazine´s latest podcast, Pascale Ehrenfreund talks about newly discovered exoplanets, and explains what we still need to learn about the evolution of solar systems.

Miniature Worlds in the Making
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
11/23/07
Astronomers have found evidence for what might be the beginning of shrunken versions of our Solar System. They have shown that the birthplaces of planets exist not only around stars, but also around objects similar in size to Jupiter.

Pleiades Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
11/18/07
Astronomers have found evidence that rocky terrestrial planets may be forming around the star HD 23514. This star is similar to our Sun, and is located in the Pleiades star cluster some 400 light years away.
