Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
 
Herschel Finds Oceans of Water in Planet-Forming Disk
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
10/24/11
Summary: For the first time, astronomers have detected cold water vapor in the dusty disk around a young star.

Spiral Arms Point to Possible Planets in a Star's Dusty Disk
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
10/22/11
Summary: Astronomers have discovered the first disk of gas and dust with spiral-arm-like structures around a Sun-like star. The features could provide clues to the presence of planets.

Abundant Carbon in the Early Universe
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
10/12/11
Summary: Astronomers have detected a carbon emission line from the most distant galaxy known so far. The faint galaxy shows that carbon existed less than a billion years after the Big Bang. Determining the composition of the early Universe can help astrobiologists understand when and where habitable planets could have formed.

The Most Accurate Simulation of the Universe to Date
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
10/01/11
Summary: Scientists have developed the most accurate and detailed large cosmological supercomputer simulation to date.

Heavy Metal Stars Produce Earth-Like Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
09/29/11
Summary: Examining the wealth of data from Kepler, astronomers have seen a positive correlation between stellar composition and planetary formation, a correlation that could affect how we search for life in the universe.

Estrellas con Metales Pesados Producen Planetas como la Tierra
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
09/29/11
Summary: Examinando la riqueza de los datos del telescopio Kepler, los astrónomos han visto una correlación positiva entre la composición estelar y la formación planetaria, una correlación que podría afectar la manera en que buscamos vida en el universo.

Neutrinos Break the Speed of Light?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
09/24/11
Summary: A new experiment has unveiled evidence that neutrinos can travel faster than light.

Galaxy Growth is Slow and Steady
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
