   24 May 00:00:07  |  Universe Today

The North Pole ain’t what it used to be. Well, the geographic North Pole stays fixed over time (mostly because we define it to stay fixed over time) but the magnetic north pole constantly moves.

Ocean Circulation Might Be the Key to Finding Habitable Exoplanets

   23 May 00:00:06  |  Universe Today

We’ve found thousands and thousands of exoplanets now. And spacecraft like TESS will likely find thousands and thousands more of them. But most exoplanets are gassy giants, molten hell-holes, or frozen wastes. How can we find those needles-in-the-haystack habitable worlds that may be out there? How can we narrow our search? Well, first of all, …

Astronomers Are Sure These Are Two Newborn Planets Orbiting a Distant Star

   22 May 00:00:26  |  Universe Today

Planet formation is a notoriously difficult thing to observe. Nascent planets are ensconced inside dusty wombs that resist our best observation efforts. But recently, astronomers have made progress in imaging these planetary newborns. A new study presents the first-ever direct images of twin baby planets forming around their star. The study is titled “Keck/NIRC2 L’-band …
