  • HabStars: Speeding Up In the Zone
    When the Allen Telescope Array comes online in a few years, its thousand-fold better radio search capabilities would soon exhaust previously cataloged stars with potentially habitable planets. So Margaret Turnbull and Jill Tarter have a new list, called HabCat: A Catalog of Nearby Habitable

  • Infrared Eyes Set For the Sky
    A new Sun-circling telescope will reveal the universe with infrared eyes. Unlike what the Hubble Space Telescope shows in visible light, this Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) will look for heat.

  • Hypernova Blast
    The light from a massive explosion 2 billion years ago just arrived March 29th on Earth, thus setting off a global flurry of robotic telescopes to track what turned out to be 100 times more intense than any previously studied supernova events.

  • Star's Eye-Popping Outburst
    In January 2002, a dull star in an obscure constellation suddenly became the brightest star in our Milky Way galaxy. The mysterious star's three-dimensional structure of dust-shells provided the Hubble telescope with a glimpse of an aging star's 15 minutes of fame.

  • Nanodiamonds are Forever? Maybe Not
    When nanodiamonds were discovered in 1989, they seemed to be remnants of supernovas - tiny grains of physical history even older than the solar system. Logically, comets should be full of these microscopic diamonds.

  • We Are All Made of Stars
    For the first time, scientists have identified and analyzed single grains of silicate stardust in the laboratory.

  • The Day the Stars Ignited
    To see the afterglow of the Big Bang is to know the age of the Universe: 13.7 billion years within a remarkable 1% error. But in just the first 200 million years, the embryonic stars ignited their fusion of light elements towards heavier ones,

  • The Universe in Forty Leaps
    Zoom out from a single sodium atom to the edge of the universe. From micro- to mega- in powers of ten on the zoom lens.

  • Telescopes for Stardust
    As they reach Earth at faster than bullet speeds, extrasolar meteors hint at distant planet formation. Radar telecopes could trace dust grains back to neighboring solar systems, detailing their journey as grand detective stories for astronomers.
