Astronomers create best map of the southern sky
The map of the southern sky we've released to the world today is the best ever created, but this is only the beginning of a five-year program to capture it in all its splendour.

MACHOs are dead. WIMPs are a no-show. Say hello to SIMPs
The intensive, worldwide search for dark matter, the missing mass in the universe, has so far failed to find an abundance of dark, massive stars or scads of strange new weakly interacting particles, but a new candidate is slowly gaining followers and observational support.

Crossing drones with satellites: ESA eyes high-altitude aerial platforms
Crossing drones with satellites: ESA eyes high-altitude aerial platforms
ESA is considering extending its activities to a new region of the sky via a novel type of aerial vehicle, a 'missing link' between drones and satellites. High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites, or HAPS, are platforms that float or fly at high altitude like conventional aircraft but operate more like satellites - except that rather than working from space they can remain in position inside the atmosphere for weeks or even months, offering continuous coverage of the territory below.

Less life: Limited phosphorus recycling suppressed early Earth's biosphere
Less life: Limited phosphorus recycling suppressed early Earth’s biosphere
The amount of biomass - life - in Earth's ancient oceans may have been limited due to low recycling of the key nutrient phosphorus , according to new research by the University of Washington and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. The research, published online Nov. 22 Advances, also comments on the role of volcanism in supporting Earth's early biosphere - and may even apply to the search for life on other worlds.

Forty years of Meteosat
ESA's first Earth observation satellite was launched on 23 November 1977. When the first Meteosat satellite took its place in the sky, it completed coverage of the whole globe from geostationary orbit and laid the foundations for European and world cooperation in meteorology that continues today.

Unexpected atmospheric vortex behaviour on Saturn's moon Titan
Unexpected atmospheric vortex behaviour on Saturn’s moon Titan
A new study, led by a University of Bristol earth scientist, has shown that recently reported unexpected behaviour on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is due to its unique atmospheric chemistry. Titan's polar atmosphere recently experiences and unexpected and significant cooling, contrary to all model predictions and differing from the behaviour of all other terrestrial planets in our solar system.

Astronomers selected to take new space telescope for a spin
Two UC Berkeley astronomers are eagerly awaiting the spring 2019 launch of the James Webb Space Telescope , having been chosen to lead two of the first 13 groups that will test the capabilities of NASA's snazzy new successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. After launch in 2019, the James Webb Space Telescope will blossom into the most powerful space-based telescope ever built.

Images of strange solar system visitor peel away some of the mystery
A strange visitor, either asteroid or comet, zipping through our solar system at a high rate of speed is giving astronomers a once-in-a-generation opportunity to examine up close an object from somewhere else in our galaxy. Images of an interloper from beyond the solar system - an asteroid or a comet - were captured on Oct.

Salt pond in Antarctica, among the saltiest waters on Earth, is fed from beneath
At the base of the Transantarctic Mountains lies a geological oddity. Don Juan Pond is one of the saltiest bodies of water on the planet, filled with a dense, syrupy brine rich in calcium chloride that can remain liquid to minus 50 degrees Celsius, far below the freezing point of water. But the source of water and salt to this unusual pond remains a mystery - even as hints emerge that water in a similar form could exist on Mars.

Ozone ups and downs
Climate scientists studying three decades of ozone measurements from seven satellites see a positive trend in global recovery thanks to international efforts to curb ozone-depleting substances. The part of Earth's atmosphere with high concentrations of ozone gas protects life on Earth from the Sun's ultraviolet radiation.

Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
A pair of exceptionally rare hyper-luminous star-forming galaxies have been discovered, representing an extreme galaxy merger. The two extremely bright and massive galaxies have been caught in the act of merging in the early universe. These so-called hyper-luminous starburst galaxies are exceedingly rare at this epoch; as a pair, they may represent one of the most-extreme examples of violent star formation ever observed.
