Astronomers Map Out the Raw Material for New Star Formation in the Milky Way

   27 Oct 00:00:07  |  Universe Today

A team of researchers has discovered a complex network of filamentary structures in the Milky Way. The structures are made of atomic hydrogen gas. And we all know that stars are made mostly of hydrogen gas. Not only is all that hydrogen potential future star-stuff, the team found that its filamentary structure is also a …

Mixing Science and Art, One Painting at a Time

   26 Oct 00:00:08  |  Universe Today

All her life, Laci Shea Brock has needed to be creative and inventive. So, perhaps it?s not completely surprising that in addition to pursuing her PhD in planetary sciences and astrophysics, she?s also a talented artist. ?My Dad says I?ve always had a paintbrush in my hand,? Brock said, ?and I?ve always been inspired by …

About 3% of Starlinks Have Failed So Far

   25 Oct 00:00:07  |  Universe Today

SpaceX has drawn plenty of praise and criticism with the creation of Starlink, a constellation that will one-day provide broadband internet access to the entire world. To date, the company has launched over 800 satellites and (as of this summer) is producing them at a rate of about 120 a month. There are even plans …

Astronomers Find the Hollowed-Out Shell of a Dwarf Galaxy that Collided With the Milky Way Billions of Years Ago

   24 Oct 00:00:14  |  Universe Today

In 2005 astronomers found a dense grouping of stars in the Virgo constellation. It looked like a star cluster, except further surveys showed that some of the stars are moving towards us, and some are moving away. That finding was unexpected and suggested the Stream was no simple star cluster. A 2019 study showed that …

Geologists Have Found the Earth?s Missing Tectonic Plate

   24 Oct 00:00:14  |  Universe Today

Northern Canada has been keeping a secret from the rest of the world. It’s home to “Resurrection,” a tectonic plate that has been much theorized but never found until now. A team of researchers used what amounts to a CAT scan of northern Canada and the mantle underneath it to find the missing plate. Finding …

Astronomers Challenge Recent Findings About Venus. ?No Statistically Significant Detection of Phosphine

   23 Oct 00:00:28  |  Universe Today

In September, a team of scientists reported finding phosphine in the upper atmosphere of Venus. Phosphine can be a biomarker and is here on Earth. But it’s also present on Jupiter, where it’s produced abiotically. The discovery led to conjecture about what kind of life might survive in Venus’ atmosphere, continually producing the easily-degraded phosphine. …

Scientists Think They Know What Caused the Deadliest Mass Extinction in the History of the Earth

   23 Oct 00:00:29  |  Universe Today

Humanity can have a love/hate relationship with itself, but there’s no denying that we’re the pinnacle of evolution on Earth as things stand now. But it took an awfully long time for evolution to produce beings such as we. Several times, life had to drag itself back from near annihilation. The largest extinction setback was …
