Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
 
Alien Moons Could Bake Dry from Young Gas Giants' Hot Glow
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/06/14
Summary: A big problem for otherwise habitable moons is the heat radiating from their gas giant planets.

What Would A Rocky Exoplanet Look Like? Atmosphere Models Seek Clues
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/03/14
Summary: Exoplanet researchers are working on a model of what types of atmospheres are typical for different kinds of planets. One of their goals is to better predict habitability.

'Super-Earths' May Be Dead Worlds
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
03/02/14
Summary: New research suggests that planets that form from less massive cores can become benign habitats for life, whereas larger objects end up as ‘mini-Neptunes' with thick atmospheres and probably stay sterile.

Clockwork Motion In Nearby Galaxy
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/22/14
Summary: Using the sharp-eyed NASA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have for the first time precisely measured the rotation rate of a galaxy based on the clock-like movement of its stars.

Four New Galaxy Clusters Take Us Further Back in Time
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/18/14
Summary: Four unknown galaxy clusters each potentially containing thousands of individual galaxies have been discovered some 10 billion light years from Earth.

The Oldest Star in the Known Universe
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/17/14
Summary: A team led by astronomers at The Australian National University has discovered the oldest known star in the Universe, which formed shortly after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.

A 'Snow Globe' Solar System
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/11/14
Summary: A new study on asteroid diversity is providing clues about the tumultuous past of the Solar System.

Weather Map of Distant World Could Shed New Light on Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/06/14
Summary: Researchers have mapped the surface of a brown dwarf -- an object larger than a planet and smaller than a star -- for the first time. Studying the weather on a distant world -- where it rains molten iron -- could help scientists to better understand weather patterns in other solar systems.

Solving a 30-Year-Old Problem in Massive Star Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/02/14
Summary: An international group of astrophysicists has found evidence strongly supporting a solution to a long-standing puzzle about the birth of some of the most massive stars in the universe.

How Circumbinary Planets Form
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/02/14
Summary: A new study sheds light on the formation of planets that orbit two stars.
