"During its expansion, the universe evolved towards its present state, which is homogeneous and isotropic on large scales. This is inferred, among other things, from the measurement of the so-called background radiation as nicely seen in the full sky image of the WMAP data. New results published in the renowned journal PRL show that homogenization in the investigated class of cosmological models is already completely explained by Einstein's theory of gravity and does not require any additional modifications." (© NASA / WMAP Science Team) Gravity can accelerate the homogenization of space-time as the universe evolves.

An X-class solar flare (X9.3) emitted on September 6, 2017, and captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory in extreme ultraviolet light. (Image courtesy of NASA/GSFC/SDO) Solar flares are violent explosions on the sun that fling out high-energy charged particles, sometimes toward Earth, where they disrupt communications and endanger satellites and astronauts.

On Earth, auroras, also called northern lights, have always fascinated people. An international consortium involving the University of Bern has now discovered such auroras in the ultraviolet wavelength range at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Chury for short. This phenomenon was detected thanks to the analysis of data from the European Space Agency ESA's Rosetta mission.

Following extensive observations of stellar winds around cool evolved stars scientists have figured out how planetary nebulae get their mesmerizing shapes. The findings, published in Science , contradict common consensus, and show that not only are stellar winds aspherical, but they also share similarities with planetary nebulae.
