Stellar Nursery Blooms into View

The OmegaCAM imager on ESO’s VLT Survey Telescope has captured this glittering view of the stellar nursery called Sharpless 29. Many astronomical phenomena can be seen in this giant image, including cosmic dust and gas clouds that reflect, absorb, and re-emit the light of hot young stars within the nebula. Credit: ESO/M. Kornmesser

Metal asteroid Psyche is all set for an early visit from NASA NASA/JPL Christian Schroeder, University of Stirling Three times further away from the sun than the Earth lies an enormous lump of metal. Around 252km in diameter, the metallic “M-class” asteroid 16 Psyche is […]

WASP-18b Has Smothering Stratosphere Without Water

A NASA-led team of scientists determined that WASP-18b, a “hot Jupiter” located 325 light-years from Earth, has a stratosphere that’s loaded with carbon monoxide, or CO, but has no signs of water. Credits: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center

WASP-18b Has Smothering Stratosphere Without Water

WASP-18b Has Smothering Stratosphere Without Water A NASA-led team has found evidence that the oversized planet WASP-18b is wrapped in a smothering stratosphere loaded with carbon monoxide and devoid of water. The findings come from a new analysis of observations made by the Hubble and […]
