Hubble Captures the Most Comprehensive Image of the Universe Yet

New Hubble telescope photos reveal stars and other celestial bodies that would have been impossible to observe on the ground, giving astronomers critical information that will prove useful as the launch of the more powerful James Webb Space Telescope approaches.

Astronomers Discover First Thorne-Zytkow Object, a Bizarre Type Of Hybrid Star

In a discovery decades in the making, scientists have detected the first of a “theoretical” class of stars first proposed in 1975 by physicist Kip Thorne and astronomer Anna Żytkow. Thorne-Żytkow objects (TŻOs) are hybrids of red supergiant and neutron stars that superficially resemble normal red supergiants, such as Betelguese in the constellation Orion. They differ, however, in their distinct chemical signatures that result from unique activity in their stellar interiors.

Pair Of Researchers Suggest Black Holes At Center Of Galaxies Might Instead Be Wormholes

Zilong Li and Cosimo Bambi with Fudan University in Shanghai have come up with a very novel idea—those black holes that are believed to exist at the center of a lot of galaxies, may instead by wormholes.

‘Mega-Earth’: Astronomers Find a New Type of Earth-like Planet

Astronomers announced that they have discovered a new type of planet – a rocky world weighing 17 times as much as Earth. Theorists believed such a world couldn’t form because anything so hefty would grab hydrogen gas as it grew and become a Jupiter-like gas giant. This planet, though, is all solids and much bigger than previously discovered “super-Earths,” making it a “mega-Earth.”

NASA Captures Close-Up Details Of Solar Storm for the First Time (VIDEO)

NASA’s revolutionary solar observatory has captured rare footage of super-hot bubbles on the sun’s surface, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs). While CMEs are not rare themselves, this time is different – because for the first time, the process was caught on camera by NASA’s Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, or IRIS.

Cosmic Explosion Spotted In Neighboring Galaxy

NASA’s Swift satellite reported an enormous explosion occurred this morning at 8.15 AEST in our neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda. This explosion is known as a Gamma Ray Burst (GRB), one of the most powerful explosions in the Universe.

Night of Shooting Stars: Meteor Shower Camelopardalid

Camelopardalid is uncommon because its debris is strongly influenced by Jupiter’s gravity. The May shower just might rival the Perseid meteor shower in August.

Solar Wind ‘Triggers Lightning On Earth’

Activity on the Sun is sparking lightning strikes here on Earth, a study suggests. Scientists have found that when gusts of high-speed solar particles enter our atmosphere, the number of lightning bolts increases.

West Antarctic Ice Sheet Collapse Is Under Way

The West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which holds enough water to raise global seas by several feet, is thinning. Scientists have been warning of its collapse, based on theories, but with few firm predictions or timelines.

Black Whole Dynamics: The Foundation of our Fractal-Holographic Universe

In the Holofractographic model of the universe the black whole is the fundamental dynamic of space-time which generates all of creation. Yet until spin was accounted for within Einstein’s field equations, a true understanding of the nature and dynamics of black holes was not possible.

Astronomers Create First Realistic Virtual Universe

Move over, Matrix – astronomers have done you one better. They have created the first realistic virtual universe using a computer simulation called “Illustris.” Illustris can recreate 13 billion years of cosmic evolution in a cube 350 million light-years on a side with unprecedented resolution.

Sun’s Fractal Surprise Could Help Fusion On Earth

The sun has thrown us a fractal surprise. An unexpected pattern has been glimpsed in the solar wind, the turbulent plasma of charged particles that streams from the sun. It offers clues for handling plasmas that roil inside nuclear fusion reactors on Earth.

The Reality of Long Range Weather and Climate Forecasting – Piers Corbyn

The Reality of Long Range Weather and Climate Forecasting – Piers Corbyn

In his talk, Piers Corbyn describes the failure of standard meteorology (SM) in outlook, theory, and practice. He included: signals in real meteorology data unexplained by SM; real role of jet stream, stratosphere, electro-jets, magnetosphere, solar wind, solar corona, and the Moon; the total inability of SM to explain: sudden stratospheric warmings and its consequences, tropical storm intensifications, angular momentum concentration in tornadoes; and the need for something else such as electromagnetic plasma explanations; the theoretical basis of non-standard long range weather forecasting on a real planet; a summary on his WeatherAction forecasting skill and examples; and the future of forecasting and meteorology, climate ‘science’ and science in general.

Solar Eclipse Will Transform Sun into ‘Ring of Fire’ Next Week

Solar Eclipse Will Transform Sun into ‘Ring of Fire’ Next Week

Sun will look like a ring of fire above some remote parts of the world next Tuesday (April 29) during a solar eclipse, but most people around the world won’t get a chance to see it. Tuesday’s solar eclipse is known as an “annular” — rather than “total” — lunar eclipse. That’s because Tuesday’s eclipse will occur when the moon is close to its farthest distance from the Earth, making it too small to cover the sun completely. The resulting effect looks like a ring of fire, called an “annulus,” appears around the silhouette of the moon.
