ALMA captured the bubble in multiple wavelengths of light, producing a 3D “data cube” that researchers have mined in detail.
Another challenge is that Cassini’s two nexuses of control – NASA and the European Space Agency – won’t “see” the event in the dark of night, making the signal all the much dimmer as western telescopes fight twilight.
This early epoch coincides with a period of peak galaxy formation in the Universe, when the foundations of most galaxies were being formed. As Tadaki indicated in a NAOJ press release.
If you think about what makes a planet habitable, you need an atmosphere,” Kaplan said. “But you also need a magnetic field to protect the planet from damaging radiation from its star.

That rapid schedule would require the sample collection lander to deploy its rover, pick up the cached samples, and return them for launch into Mars orbit in just nine months.
Astronomers can correct for the difference because the brightest supernovae seem to fade more slowly than their dimmer kin. Still, the fact that each ‘standard candle’ looks slightly different from the next is cause for concern.

Once again, NASA has determined that this particular asteroid will sail harmlessly by, passing Earth at a minimum distance of over 7 million km (4.4 million mi), or about 18 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon. As Paul Chodas – NASA’s manager of CNEOS at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California – said in a NASA press statement.
How stars like Antares lose mass so quickly in the final phase of their evolution has been a problem for over half a century,” Keiichi Ohnaka, of the Universidad Católica del Norte in Chile, said in a statement.
For anyone who missed the 2017 eclipse, another total solar eclipse will sweep across America in seven years. On April 8, 2024, the moon will cast a shadow across Mexico and the U.S., with a path of totality that crosses Texas and extends northeast through Maine.
This scenario is similar to one proposed by Joseph Bramante and Tim Linden in 2016 . Instead of PBHs, they proposed that dark matter particles could accumulate inside an aging neutron star to form a star-consuming black hole. As the black hole accreted mass, it would release enough gravitational binding energy to power the ejection of dense neutron matter for strong-r-process synthesis.
