Recipe for star formation discovered

An international team of astronomers has developed a novel technique to reconstruct an interstellar cloud’s three-dimensional structure, to estimate how many new stars the cloud is likely to form.

Every red dwarf star has at least one planet

Three new planets classified as habitable-zone super-Earths are amongst eight new planets discovered orbiting nearby red dwarf stars by an international team of astronomers from the UK and Chile. The study identifies that virtually all red dwarfs, which make up at least three quarters of the stars in the Universe, have planets orbiting them

A river of plasma, guarding against the sun

MIT scientists identify a plasma plume that naturally protects the Earth against solar storms

Hubble Finds That Monster 'El Gordo' Galaxy Cluster Is Bigger Than Thought

By precisely measuring how much the gravity from the cluster's mass warps images of far-more-distant background galaxies, a team of astronomers has calculated the cluster's mass to be as much as 3 million billion times the mass of our Sun

NIST Gives Astronomers a Better Ruler in the Search for Extrasolar Planets

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have rejuvenated a technique for finding planets near distant stars. New measurements of light from special lamps could help astronomers find planets hidden in data from more than a decade's worth of extrasolar planet searches, as well as improve telescopes' current capabilities.

Where dwarves collide

Galaxies grow by attracting and ingesting smaller galaxies, or by merging with other galaxies of comparable size. Now, a team of astronomers, including Glenn van de Ven from the Max Planck Institute of Astronomy, have identified the smallest example of a remnant of such a galactic

LIGHT AND ELECTRONS, A PROFITABLE DANCE

Over the past half-century, biosensors have opened a new window on the physical world while revolutionizing much of modern society. By utilizing an electronic or optical system, biosensors detect and interact with the components of biological materials, making it possible to analyze DNA, measure the

Researchers at University of Wisconsin-Madison Measure 2D SFG Spectrum of a Peptide Using Princeton Instruments CCD Camera!

Determination of the secondary structure of interface-bound peptides is a powerful tool in the investigation of such protein-misfolding disorders as Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes. Unlike conventional linear spectroscopic methods, 2D IR and 2D SFG provide unambiguous information about the structure and dynamics of target molecules

New biomedical diagnostics using personalized 3D imaging

Researchers at the firm 4DNature and the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) are developing a new technology, called helical optical projection tomography, which improves biomedical diagnostic 3D imaging.
