Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
The Strong Force
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New research is helping scientists understand one of the four fundamental forces of the Universe.

The Big Rock Candy Solar System
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study shows that the earliest rocks in our solar system were more like cotton candy than the hard rocks we're familiar with today. The research is providing a better picture of how rocky planets form and could help in the search for habitable worlds around distant stars.

The Borderline Between Star and Planet
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have discovered the coldest known star. The unique brown dwarf has properties that are different from any other star and, in some ways, make it more similar to a cold, giant exoplanet.

LHC Could Be the First Time Machine
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new theory predicts that the Large Hadron Collider could be the first machine capable of causing matter to travel backwards in time. The researchers who originated the theory admit it's a 'long shot', but it still fits within the laws of physics.

Assumptions about Exo-Oceans
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Some estimates indicate that 25% of Sun-like stars have Earth-like planets. A new study now shows that these planets are almost certain to have oceans if they are located in the right temperature zone around their host stars.

Planet Formation in Action
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have gathered new data from a disc of material around a young star that is in the early stages of planetary formation. The study can help astrobiologists understand how planets form and where best to search for habitable extrasolar worlds.

The Solar Family
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft has pieced together the first portrait of the Solar System - from the inside looking out. The image compliments a similar portrait captured by Voyager 1 and taken from the outside of the Solar System looking inward.

A Radio Eye's Clear Vision of Our Universe
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New measurements from astronomy's most precise telescope are expanding our knowledge of many areas of space science, including the search for extrasolar planets.

Direct Images of Disks Illuminate Planet Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have directly imaged two young stars that reveal host planets may have formed from their disks. The finding will help scientists understand planet formation, an essential step in determining where to search for habitable, Earth-like worlds.

Distortions in the Gravitational Lens
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New research shows that an optic effect called 'strong gravitational lensing' is distorting the number and shape of the Universe's most distant galaxies. The study could have implications for astrobiologists who are studying the nature of galactic environments in the Universe and the possible locations in which to search for habitable worlds.
