More Science Findings From Cassini
Hundreds of scientists around the world continue to pore over images and data from the Cassini spacecraft following its successful July 1st insertion into Saturn orbit and its October 26th close flyby of the cloud-enshrouded moon Titan - Sky and Telescope
Stormy Uranus Takes Astronomers By Surprise
Uranus may not be “the most boring planet” in the solar system after all - new images suggest the outer planet experiences weird seasonal weather patterns - New Scientist
Theorists Tackle Astronomer’s Mysterious ‘Baby’ Planet
In June, researchers from the University of Rochester announced they had located a potential planet around another star so young that it defied theorists’ explanations. Now a new team of Rochester planet-formation specialists are backing up the original conclusions, saying they’ve confirmed that the hole formed in the star’s dusty disk could very well have been formed by a new planet - University of Rochester
The Dwindling Kuiper Belt
Objects in the (telescope) mirror are smaller than they've appeared — at least in the case of the small, icy bodies beyond Neptune forming the debris zone known as the Kuiper Belt - Sky and Telescope

Europe's Mars Express Returns Its First Close-Up Images Of Phobos
Named for fear itself, Phobos, the largest and innermost of the two martian moons, bears a disarming resemblance to a striated potato. Scientists hope new views from the European Space Agency's (ESA) Mars Express spacecraft will shed light on how it got that way - Astronomy
Mars Methane Boosts Chances For Life
Tantalizing new evidence possibly suggestive of current life on Mars has just been reported by two independent teams. The groups, led by Michael J. Mumma (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) and Vladimir A. Krasnopolsky (Catholic University of America), have found the spectral signature of methane (CH4) in the Martian atmosphere - Sky and Telescope
Hubble Tracks Asteroid's Sky Trek
While analyzing NASA Hubble Space Telescope images of the Sagittarius dwarf irregular galaxy (SagDIG), an international team of astronomers led by Simone Marchi, Yazan Momany, and Luigi Bedin were surprised to see the trail of a faint asteroid that had drifted across the field of view during the exposures - Space Telescope Science Institute
Cassini Spacecraft Images Objects, Density Waves In Saturn's Rings
A University of Colorado at Boulder-built instrument riding on the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft is being used to distinguish objects in Saturn's rings smaller than a football field, making them twice as sharp as any previous ring observations - University of Colorado at Boulder
VLA Study Offers Clue To Galaxy Formation
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope to study the most distant known quasar have found a tantalizing clue that may answer a longstanding cosmic chicken-and-egg question: which came first, supermassive black holes or giant galaxies? - National Radio Astronomy Observatory
New Telescope Sees Known Pulsar In A New Light
An experimental telescope called InFOCuS has given NASA scientists a fresh look at a well-known pulsar. The image is compiled using data from higher-energy x-rays than those collected by other current instruments such as the Chandra X-ray Observatory - Scientific American
