Spacewalkers Find Clue To Station Air Problems
A spacewalk by International Space Station astronauts on Wednesday has revealed vents encrusted with residue on the exterior of their orbital outpost. The residue might explain problems that the station's air systems have experienced in recent months - New Scientist, NASA
SMART-1's First Images From The Moon
ESA's SMART-1 captured its first close-range images of the Moon this January, during a sequence of test lunar observations from an altitude between 1000 and 5000 kilometres above the lunar surface - ESA
Mini-Halos Began Cosmic Structure
A group of cosmologists has calculated the properties of the universe's first structures. Juerg Diemand, Ben Moore, and Joachim Stadel at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of ZГѓВјrich in ZГѓВјrich, Switzerland, simulated structural evolution beginning immediately after the Big Bang and followed the growth of structures to the present day - Astronomy
Violent Past Of Milky Way's Black Hole Revealed
The colossal black hole at the centre of our galaxy was blasting out a million times more energy 350 years ago than it is today, a European Space Agency telescope has revealed. The dramatic discovery suggests it might well flare up again in the future - New Scientist
The Galaxy's Youngest Globular Cluster?
A newfound object in the constellation Cetus may be the youngest globular cluster in the galaxy, says an astronomer in Chile. If so, it's akin to a 30-year-old living in a retirement home - Astronomy
Biggest Stars Produce Strongest Magnets
Astronomy is a science of extremes--the biggest, the hottest, and the most massive. Today [Jan. 28], astrophysicist Bryan Gaensler (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) and colleagues announced that they have linked two of astronomy's extremes, showing that some of the biggest stars in the cosmos become the strongest magnets when they die - Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Powerful Cosmic-Ray Source Found
For the first time, a probable source of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) has been identified in the sky, says the astrophysicist who reported the discovery at the San Diego meeting of the American Astronomical Society in January - Astronomy
Pluto's Moon Created By Cosmic Hit-And-Run
Pluto's moon, Charon, may have been blasted off the planet in a large collision early in the solar system's formation, new research suggests. The process is similar to that thought to have formed the Earth's own moon - New Scientist
Sickening Solar Flares
The biggest solar proton storm in 15 years erupted last week. NASA researchers discuss what it might have done to someone on the Moon - Science @ NASA
Antigravity Has Feet Of Clay
Could astronauts take a leaf out of H. G. Wells's book The First Men in the Moon, and use spacecraft propelled by antigravity devices? Some see the idea as science fiction, but major space agencies take it seriously - Nature
