Machine Learning Finds 140,000 Future Star Forming Regions in the Milky Way

   21 Mar 20:00:21  |  Universe Today

Our galaxy is still actively making stars. We’ve known that for a while, but sometimes it’s hard to understand the true scale in astronomical terms. A team from Japan is trying to help with that by using a novel machine-learning technique to identify soon-to-be star-forming regions spread throughout the Milky Way. They found 140,000 of …

Sci-Fi Christmas is Ruined! Planet Vulcan Doesn’t Exist

   20 Mar 20:00:20  |  Universe Today

According to a new study, the exoplanet 40 Eridani b (aka. "Vulcan") was a false positive. Bad news for Star Trek fans, but possibly good for future exoplanet surveys.

Remnants of a Relict Glacier Found Near the Equator on Mars

   20 Mar 20:00:20  |  Universe Today

New results presented at the 54th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference could change our approach to Mars exploration. Scientists studying the surface of Mars discovered a relict glacier near the planet’s equator. The relict glacier could signal the presence of buried water ice at the planet’s mid-latitudes. Some areas of the Martian surface are known …

Venus Breakthrough, $1B to Deorbit The ISS, Moon Spacesuits

   19 Mar 20:00:13  |  Universe Today

Venus has active volcanoes, we get a glimpse of NASA’s new lunar exploration suits, and scientists build a completely flat telescope lens. Active Volcano Found On Venus Venus holds many mysteries, and one of the biggest is whether or not there are still active volcanoes on its surface. NASA’s Magellan mission gathered radar images of …

Potentially Active Volcanoes Have Been Found on Venus

   18 Mar 20:00:20  |  Universe Today

Using archival radar images taken in the 1990s by NASA’s Magellan spacecraft, scientists have found evidence of recent active volcanism on Venus.  The images revealed a volcanic vent that changed shape and increased significantly in size over an eight-month period. The scientists say their findings confirm long-held suspicions that the planet, which is known to …

Perseverance Watches Carefully as Ingenuity Lifts Off for its 47th Flight

   18 Mar 20:00:19  |  Universe Today

In some of the best footage yet, the Perseverance rover has taken new video of the Ingenuity helicopter taking off and flying over Mars’ surface. This video shows the dust initially kicked up by the helicopter’s spinning rotors, as well as Ingenuity taking off, hovering, and beginning its 440-meter (1,444-foot) journey to the southwest. The …

Planets Might Protect their Water Until their Star Settles Down

   17 Mar 20:00:09  |  Universe Today

Creating rocky planets is a messy, dangerous, hot business. Planetesimals accrete together, which creates heat and pressure on the newborn world. The nearby adolescent star bombards them with intense radiation. That likely “bakes off” any surface oceans, lakes, or rivers, which is a disaster if you’re looking for places where life might arise or exist. …

The Universe Sparkles in Gamma Rays in this New NASA Animation

   17 Mar 20:00:08  |  Universe Today

We’ve come a long way since gamma rays were discovered. The late 1800s and early 1900s were a time of great scientific advancements. Scientists were just getting a handle on the different types of radiation. Radium featured prominently in the experiments, including one by French scientist Paul Ulrich Villard in 1900. Radium decays readily, and …
