Study suggests that the cosmic body destroyed the old village 12,800 years ago – HeritageDaily

A study submitted in Scientific Reports suggests that the stream of debris from a short-term comet could have destroyed the archaeological site of Tell Abu Hureyra. Tell Abu Hureyra is an archaeological site in the Euphrates Valley in what is now Syria. The place consists of two old villages, one of which dates back to epipaleolithic times when the inhabitants …

Scientists discover ‘cosmic baby’ Fox News

Scientists have discovered a neutron star, which they call a “cosmic baby”. The neutron star Swift J1818.0-1607 is only 240 years old and, according to a NASA statement, “a true newborn by cosmic standards”. The celestial object was discovered on March 12 by NASA’s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory. At this point, the neutron star released a massive x-ray. Additional investigations …

A cosmic baby is discovered and it is brilliant

This illustration shows magnetic field lines that protrude from a highly magnetic neutron star, or a dense nugget that remains after a star enters the supernova and explodes. These objects, known as magnetars, generate bright flashes of light that may be driven by their strong magnetic fields. Credit: ESA Astronomers tend to have a slightly different sense of time than …

Oumuamua: Neither comet nor asteroid, but a cosmic iceberg

The astronomers finally came to the conclusion that the object was about 300 meters long and cigar-shaped, which resembled the image of a rocket cylinder. However, further analysis showed that it quickened speed when leaving the solar system, suggesting that gas boiling from the surface of the icy body gives it a boost. That meant it was a comet. As …

Repeating the Cosmic Radio Burst follows the bizarre 157-day cycle

Artist’s impression of an FRB source (shown in blue) in orbit with an accompanying object (pink). picture:: Kristi Mickaliger Fast radio bursts (FRBs) have banned astronomers for over a decade, but their origins remain unclear. A newly completed survey identifies an unexpected and unusually long 157-day cycle for a known repetitive FRB in a discovery that redefines what we know …
