Hubble's Infrared Eyes Home In On Suspected Extrasolar Planet
The Hubble Space Telescope's near-infrared vision is hot on the trail of a possible planetary companion to a relatively bright young brown dwarf located 225 light-years away in the southern constellation Hydra - Space Telescope Science Institute
NASA Details Earthquake Effects On The Earth
NASA scientists using data from the Indonesian earthquake calculated it affected Earth's rotation, decreased the length of day, slightly changed the planet's shape, and shifted the North Pole by centimeters. The earthquake that created the huge tsunami also changed the Earth's rotation - NASA
New Clues Found In Ongoing Mystery Of Giant Galactic Blobs
Astronomers have numerous technical terms and numbering systems for describing the universe, but one type of mysterious object has yet to be classified. For now, these oddities are named for their strange appearance. They are called blobs - Spitzer Science Center
Popping With Pulsars
Terzan 5, a massive, densely populated globular cluster in the constellation Sagittarius contains a record number of quickly rotating "millisecond" pulsars, say astronomers who discovered 21 new ones there - Astronomy

Spitzer Sees Dusty Aftermath Of Pluto-Sized Collision
Astronomers say a dusty disk swirling around the nearby star Vega is bigger than earlier thought. It was probably caused by collisions of objects, perhaps as big as the planet Pluto, up to 2,000 kilometers (about 1,200 miles) in diameter - Spitzer Science Center
Mars Rover Discovers A Potential Meteorite
NASA's rover Opportunity has spotted an unusual rock on Mars that may be a meteorite. The rover first glimpsed the rock two weeks ago as it approached the remains of its heat shield, which plummeted to Mars during the rover's descent through the atmosphere in January 2004.
Echoes Of Big Bang Found In Galaxies
Tiny fluctuations in the density of matter after the Big Bang are definitely reflected in the distribution of galaxies in our Universe, according to two research groups. The findings confirm theories of how the Universe grew from being almost uniformly smooth to having dense clusters of stars and galaxies - Nature
