A White Dwarf Living on the Edge
Astronomers have discovered the smallest and most massive white dwarf ever seen. The smoldering cinder, which formed when two less massive white dwarfs merged, is about 4,300 kilometers across, or somewhat larger than Earth's moon. Though the white dwarf is small, it is heavy, "packing a mass greater than that of our sun into a body about the size of our moon," says Ilaria Caiazzo, the Sherman Fairchild Postdoctoral Scholar Research Associate in Theoretical Astrophysics at Caltech and lead author of the new study appearing in the July 1 issue of the journal Nature.

Cosmic dawn occurred 250 to 350 million years after Big Bang
Cosmic dawn, when stars formed for the first time, occurred 250 million to 350 million years after the beginning of the universe, according to a new study led by researchers at UCL and the University of Cambridge. The study, published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society , suggests that the NASA James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), scheduled to launch in November, will be sensitive enough to observe the birth of galaxies directly.

Dark Energy Survey Releases Most Precise Look at the Universe’s Evolution
Carnegie Mellon University New results from the Dark Energy Survey (DES) used the largest ever sample of galaxies over an enormous piece of the sky to produce the most precise measurements of the universe's composition and growth to date. Scientists measured that the way matter is distributed throughout the universe is consistent with predictions in the standard cosmological model, the best current model of the universe.

Do lightning storms affect high-flying satellites?
The VIPER experiment was aboard this sounding rocket when it was launched at 9:15 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. (Photo courtesy of NASA) Lightning storms produce bursts of radio waves called whistlers that seem innocuous as they bounce off the ionosphere and dissipate with seemingly little effect.
