One more clue to the Moon's origin
One more clue to the Moon’s origin
Researchers from ETH Zurich discover the first definitive proof that the Moon inherited indigenous noble gases from the Earth's mantle. The discovery represents a significant piece of the puzzle towards understanding how the Moon and, potentially, the Earth and other celestial bodies were formed. Humankind has maintained an enduring fascination with the Moon.

No trace of dark matter halos
No trace of dark matter halos
Signs of disturbance in the dwarf galaxies of one of Earth's nearest galaxy clusters indicate an alternative gravity theory According to the standard model of cosmology, the vast majority of galaxies are surrounded by a halo of dark matter particles. This halo is invisible, but its mass exerts a strong gravitational pull on galaxies in the vicinity.

Research INSTITUT-IphU A Long Time Ago, in a Galaxy Far, Far Away... with JWST
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is the successor of the Hubble Space Telescope. JWST is designed to answer outstanding questions about our origins: from the formation of stars and planets to the birth of the first galaxies in the early Universe. JWST was built by an international partnership between NASA, ESA, and CSA.

Meteoritic Evidence for Very Early Volcanism in the Nascent Solar System
An international team of researchers, including scientists from Freie Universität Berlin, publish a new study Scientists from Freie Universität Berlin, University of Bristol, Northwest University Xi'an, and the Institute of Geochemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have published the results of a new determination of the crystallization age of 4566.6 ± 0.6 million years for a meteorite called Erg Chech 002 (EC 002).

Places on the moon where it's always 'sweater weather'
Places on the moon where it’s always ’sweater weather’
Unhospitable. Temperatures on the moon's surface swing wildly between boiling hot and freezing cold. Humans on the moon. To conduct long-term lunar research, bases would have to protect people and equipment from the damaging effects of the heat and cold. Living underground. UCLA researchers have discovered that lunar pits and caves could provide stable temperatures for human habitation.

Preparing for the World’s biggest radio telescope
Astronomers simulate physical processes in the interstellar medium of galaxies at "Cosmic Noon" for future SKAO observations An international team of researchers has demonstrated that the Square Kilometre Array Observatory (SKAO) is capable of detecting radio emissions from normal spiral galaxies in the early universe.

Novel way to 'see' the first stars through the fog of the early Universe
Novel way to ’see’ the first stars through the fog of the early Universe
A team of astronomers has developed a method that will allow them to -see- through the fog of the early Universe and detect light from the first stars and galaxies. The first stars were surrounded by clouds of hydrogen, which absorb light really well, so it's hard to detect or observe the light behind the clouds directly.

Dormant black hole discovered outside our galaxy
Dormant black hole discovered outside our galaxy
The "Police of Black Holes" with participation of the University of Bonn shows a stellar-mass black hole A team of international experts, renowned for debunking several black hole discoveries, have found a stellar-mass black hole in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a neighbour galaxy to our own. Moreover, they found that the star that gave rise to the black hole vanished without any sign of a powerful explosion.

Hey Siri: How Much Does This Galaxy Cluster Weigh?
It's been nearly a century since astronomer Fritz Zwicky first calculated the mass of the Coma Cluster, a dense collection of almost 1,000 galaxies located in the nearby universe. But estimating the mass of something so huge and dense, not to mention 320 million light-years away, has its share of problems - then and now.

Cyborg collaboration finds 40,000 ring galaxies
Cyborg collaboration finds 40,000 ring galaxies
Human and machine intelligence worked together to find 40,000 ring galaxies, scientists at the National Astronomy Meeting will announce today. Dr Mike Walmsley of The University of Manchester will present the new work, describing how this "cyborg" approach measured the shapes of millions of galaxies.

Neutrino Factories in Deep Outer Space
Neutrino Factories in Deep Outer Space
Neutrinos that reach our planet from the depths of the Universe originate from blazars. Astrophysicists have proven this for the first time. The Earth's atmosphere is continuously bombarded by cosmic rays. These consist of electrically charged particles of energies up to 10 20 electron volts. That is a million times more than the energy achieved in the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva.

New radio astronomy survey peers through cosmic dust to investigate the Milky Way
New radio astronomy survey peers through cosmic dust to investigate the Milky Way
The first results from a mammoth astronomy project aimed at mapping out the origins of our 13.8 billion year old universe have been announced today. An international team of astronomers from around the globe taking part in the project named, COMAP (CO Mapping Array Project) will offer us a new glimpse into this epoch of galaxy assembly, helping to answer questions about what really caused the universe ' s rapid increase in the production of stars.

Curtin-developed machine learning 'phones home' for famous Martian rock
Curtin-developed machine learning ’phones home’ for famous Martian rock
New Curtin-led research has pinpointed the exact home of the oldest and most famous Martian meteorite for the first time ever, offering critical geological clues about the earliest origins of Mars. Using a multidisciplinary approach involving a machine learning algorithm, the new research – published today in Nature Communications – identified the particular crater on Mars that ejected the so-called 'Black Beauty' meteorite, weighing 320 grams, and paired stones, which were first reported as being found in northern Africa in 2011.

Astronomers detect a radio 'heartbeat' billions of light-years from Earth
Astronomers detect a radio ’heartbeat’ billions of light-years from Earth
Astronomers at McGill University, MIT and elsewhere have detected a strange and persistent radio signal from a far-off galaxy, that appears to be flashing with surprising regularity. Classified as a fast radio burst, or FRB, this new signal persists for up to three seconds, about 1,000 times longer than the average FRB.

Neutrino Factories in Deep Outer Space
An international research team reveals for the first time the origin of neutrinos, elementary particles that reach our planet from the depths of the Universe. Highly energetic and difficult to detect, neutrinos travel billions of light years before reaching our planet. Although it is known that these elementary particles come from the depths of our Universe, their precise origin is still unknown.
