Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
Comet Crystals in a Nearby Planetary System
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have found pristine material in a dust belt around a young star that matches comets in our own solar system.

The Magnetic Wakes of Pulsar Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Pulsars are dense stars that rotate rapidly and flash like lighthouse beacons. Now, a new study is helping astrobiolgists understand the potential properties of planetary systems around these extreme stars.

How Hot are Super-Earths?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study suggests that rocky super-Earths might cool down very slowly after their formation, making them hotter than previously thought. The research could have implications in understanding how "Earth-like" these planets truly are.

Meteors Might Add Methane to Exoplanet Atmospheres
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Researchers says that methane generated by meteors could make alien worlds look like they are inhabited by life -- even though they are not.

Planets Can Form in the Galactic Center
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New research shows that planets are able to form in the crowded region of stars, supernovas and intense radiation at the center of the Milky Way.

The Birth of a Planet
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Simulated models are helping astronomers better understand how turbulence and temperature in protostellar disks can affect how planets are born.

How Old are the First Planets?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Heavy elements - ‘metals' in astronomer-speak - are created within stars and then spewed out across the cosmos by supernovae. Scientists are now asking: when did the Universe have enough metals to start building planets?

Galaxies Like the Milky Way
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have found the first group of galaxies that is just like ours.

The Big Chill
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study suggests that studying the cracks and crevices in ice crystals could revolutionize our understanding of the Universe.

New Form of Carbon Discovered
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Scientists have observed a new and unusual form of carbon clusters. The material is helping scientists understand the properties of carbon - the fourth-most-abundant element in the Universe.
