Hubble’s Compact Galaxy with Big-Time Star Formation

Hubble’s Compact Galaxy with Big-Time Star Formation As far as galaxies are concerned, size can be deceptive. Some of the largest galaxies in the Universe are dormant, while some dwarf galaxies, such as ESO 553-46 imaged here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, can produce […]

NASA Pinpoints Cause of Earth’s Recent Record Carbon Dioxide Spike

The last El Nino in 2015-16 impacted the amount of carbon dioxide that Earth’s tropical regions released into the atmosphere, leading to Earth’s recent record spike in atmospheric carbon dioxide. The effects of the El Nino were different in each region Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech

NASA Pinpoints Cause of Earth’s Recent Record Carbon Dioxide Spike

NASA Pinpoints Cause of Earth’s Recent Record Carbon Dioxide Spike A new NASA study provides space-based evidence that Earth’s tropical regions were the cause of the largest annual increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration seen in at least 2,000 years. Scientists suspected the 2015-16 El […]

Giant Exoplanet Hunters: Look for Debris Disks

Giant Exoplanet Hunters: Look for Debris Disks There’s no map showing all the billions of exoplanets hiding in our galaxy — they’re so distant and faint compared to their stars, it’s hard to find them. Now, astronomers hunting for new worlds have established a possible […]
