Andromeda’s Bright X-Ray Mystery Solved by NuSTAR

Andromeda’s Bright X-Ray Mystery Solved by NuSTAR

The Milky Way’s closest neighbor, Andromeda, features a dominant source of high-energy X-ray emission, but its identity was mysterious until now. As reported in a new study, NASA’s NuSTAR (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array) mission has pinpointed an object responsible for this high-energy radiation. The object, called Swift J0042.6+4112, is a possible pulsar, the dense remnant […]

New NASA Radar Technique Finds Lost Lunar Spacecraft

New NASA Radar Technique Finds Lost Lunar Spacecraft

Finding derelict spacecraft and space debris in Earth’s orbit can be a technological challenge. Detecting these objects in orbit around Earth’s moon is even more difficult. Optical telescopes are unable to search for small objects hidden in the bright glare of the moon. However, a new technological application of interplanetary radar pioneered by scientists at […]

Dawn Identifies Age of Ceres’ Brightest Area

Dawn Identifies Age of Ceres’ Brightest Area

The bright central area of Ceres’ Occator Crater, known as Cerealia Facula, is approximately 30 million years younger than the crater in which it lies, according to a new study in the Astronomical Journal. Scientists used data from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft to analyze Occator’s central dome in detail, concluding that this intriguing bright feature on […]

NASA’s Kepler Provides Another Peek at Ultra-cool Neighbor

NASA’s Kepler Provides Another Peek at Ultra-cool Neighbor

On Feb. 22, astronomers announced that the ultra-cool dwarf star, TRAPPIST-1, hosts a total of seven Earth-size planets that are likely rocky, a discovery made by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope in combination with ground-based telescopes. NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler space telescope also has been observing this star since December 2016. Today these additional data about TRAPPIST-1 […]

NASA Wants to Create the Coolest Spot in the Universe

NASA Wants to Create the Coolest Spot in the Universe

At super-low temperatures, atoms behave in surprising ways. — NASA has never before created or observed this behavior in space. — A Nobel Prize winner and other scientists will conduct experiments on this behavior using new technology. — This technology might one day lead to improved sensors, quantum computers, and atomic clocks used in spacecraft […]

NASA’s Europa Flyby Mission Moves into Design Phase

NASA’s Europa Flyby Mission Moves into Design Phase

A mission to examine the habitability of Jupiter’s ocean-bearing moon Europa is taking one step closer to the launchpad, with the recent completion of a major NASA review. On Feb. 15, NASA’s Europa multiple-flyby mission successfully completed its Key Decision Point-B review. This NASA decision permits the mission to move forward into its preliminary design […]
