Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
Watching the Milky Way Grow Up
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: NASA's Hubble Space telescope has provided the first images of what our galaxy, the Milky Way, might have looked like in the past. The photographs were obtained by observing light from distant galaxies that are similar to our own.

Could a SuperNova Be Visible From Earth in the Next 50 Years?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have determined that a supernova might be occurring here in the Milky Way in the next 50 years - and it could be visible from Earth.

One in Five Stars has Earth-Sized Planet in Habitable Zone
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: In a new study, astronomers estimate that as many as one in five stars could have planets similar in size to the Earth orbiting in their habitable zone.

Carbon Worlds May be Waterless
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: NASA-funded research indicates that planetary systems with so-called 'diamond planets' may have icy water reservoirs that are too small for oceans to exist on the planets themselves.

A Rare Snapshot of a Planetary Construction Site
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have captured a rare view of a planet-forming disk in an intermediate stage of its evolution. The findings will help revise models of how planets form.

Planets That Skim a Star's Surface
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have identified candidate extrasolar planets that are orbiting so close to their host stars that they are nearly skimming the stellar surface.

Super-Earth or Mini-Neptune? Telling Habitable Worlds Apart from Lifeless Gas Giants
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New models could allow today's telescopes to discern what elements and compounds are harbored in the atmospheres of mysterious, larger-than-Earth worlds.

Magnetic Fields for ExoMoons?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study on the magnetic fields of giant extrasolar planets is helping astrobiologists understand the magnetic environment of extrasolar moons.

Quantum Tunnelling Could Aid Life’s Chemistry in the Coldest Places
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Chemical reactions once thought to be 'impossible' in the incredible coldness of space can actually occur thanks to a phenomenon called ‘quantum tunnelling.' This also could mean that biochemical reactions occur in places once considered too frigid for life, like Saturn's moon Titan.

Coldest Brown Dwarfs Blur Lines Between Stars and Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study shows that some brown dwarf stars may be as cool as room temperature. If one of these objects was orbiting another star, it might be mistaken for a planet.
