Astronomers discover the source of unexplained cosmic radio bursts

To discover the source of a unique, mysterious space signal, an international team of astronomers used telescopes around the world. CSIRO / Dr. med. Andrew Howells Astronomers keep hearing unexplained, incredibly powerful signals from the distance of space – signals that come through a thousandth of a second loud and clear and then mysteriously disappear. First discovered in 2007, "these …

Uranus' rings have a 'warm' glow and astronomers are not sure why

Astronomers have uncovered that Uranus' rings have a "warm" glow to them, a trait that's befuddling them. The images, published by the University of California Berkeley and taken by the Atacama Large Millimeter / submillimeter Array (ALMA ) and the Very Large Telescope (VLT), show the paint of dust-sized particles in the rings, aiding their ability to reflect light, making …

Astronomers see "warm" glow from Uranus rings

Image: Near-infrared image of the Uranus ring system, taken with the Adaptive Optics system on the 10 m Keck telescope in July 2004. This image was taken at a wavelength of 2.2 microns and shows the main picture. .. view more Credit: Imke de Pater, Seran Gibbard and Heidi Hammel, Icarus 180, 186-200 (2006) The rings of Uranus are invisible …

Astronomers see 'warm' glow of Uranus's rings

Composite image of Uranus's atmosphere and rings at radio wavelengths, taken with the ALMA array in December 2017. The image shows thermal emission, or heat, from the rings of Uranus for the first time, the availability of scientists to determine their temperature: a frigid 77 Kelvin (-320 F). Uranus's atmosphere at these wavelengths shows the presence of molecules that absorb …

Astronomers have found two new planets that could potentially support life

The two planets orbit the star of Teegarden, an ancient star only 12 light-years from Earth. ("Only" is relative – 12 light-years equals 70,540,000,000,000 miles.) Research on the planets and their sun, published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, shows that Teegarden's star appears to be stable without major solar flares or other violent actions activity that could jeopardize the …

Astronomers discover the moon flashing at us, and nobody can explain why

People have been seeing flashes of light from the moon for thousands of years, but we still do not understand why this happens or what causes it. The strange event is known as Temporary Moon Phenomenon (TLP) and An astronomer from Germany believes he is about to solve this moon mystery. Hakan Kayal from the University of Würzburg in Bavaria …

13 billion years ago, astronomers observed how two galaxies merged

ALMA (ESO / NAOJ / NRAO), NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope, Hashimoto et al Astronomy is particularly good for one thing: it feels like an insignificant, meaningless speck floating through the infinite emptiness of space . Take, for example, this recent evolution: Astronomers have recently observed the fusion of two galaxies, but due to the distance between us and …

Astronomers look back 13 billion years and see how two galaxies collide

Artistic representation of the merging galaxies. Figure: National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. Scientists may have discovered the farthest (and thus most recent) example The research team in Japan observed a distant light source called B14-65666 with the Atacama Large Millimeter / Submillimeter array of telescopes in Chile. Higher-resolution data from the light emitted by oxygen and carbon ions suggests that …

Astronomers looking for extraterrestrial life publish the largest record in history

Astronomers announce that they publish the largest amount of data ever published for the search for extraterrestrial life. Researchers of Breakthrough Listen – a $ 100 million alien hunting project initiated by greats such as Stephen Hawking, the "most comprehensive and sensitive" search for alien technology signatures ever conducted. And it will release the data from its search for alien …
