100 Billion Brown Dwarfs
After decades of searching, astronomers discovered the first definite brown dwarf only 10 years ago. Now, a new analysis of Hubble Space Telescope data implies our galaxy has almost as many of these failed stars as it does normal stars like the Sun - Astronomy
Dark Matter Highlights Extra Dimensions
Welcome to the fourth dimension. And the fifth, and the sixth. A team of astrophysicists claims to have identified evidence that space is six-dimensional - Nature
Saturn's Dynamic Satellite
Planetary scientists continue to analyze the rich trove of observations taken by the Cassini spacecraft as it flew within 110 miles (175 kilometers) of Enceladus' surface July 14. As they do so, they find mounting evidence that ground fractures near the south pole vent water vapor, creating the moon's atmosphere - Astronomy

XMM-Newton Probes Formation Of Galaxy Clusters
ESA’s X-ray observatory, XMM-Newton, has for the first time allowed scientists to study in detail the formation history of galaxy clusters, not only with single arbitrarily selected objects, but with a complete representative sample of clusters - ESA
Fastest Pulsar Set To Escape The Milky Way
Astronomers have spotted the fastest moving stellar corpse to date – and it appears to be headed straight out of our galaxy - New Scientist
Massive Star In The Making
A recently completed dish array finds tantalizing evidence that nature makes big stars and little ones the same way - Sky and Telescope
Nuclear-Reactor Spacecraft Poor For Astronomy
Spacecraft powered by nuclear fission reactors are of limited use to astronomers, the US National Research Council panel has concluded - New Scientist
Hubble Space Telescope Begins "Two-Gyro" Science Operations
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope entered a new era of science operations this week, when engineers shut down one of the three operational gyroscopes aboard the observatory - Space Telescope Science Institute
