Long-Term Liquid Water Also on Non-Earth-Like Planets?

Liquid water is an important prerequisite for life to develop on a planet. As researchers report in a new study, liquid water could also exist for billions of years on planets that are very different ...

Climate Damage Caused by Growing Space Tourism Needs Urgent Mitigation

A formidable space tourism industry may have a greater climate effect than the aviation industry and undo repair to the protective ozone layer if left unregulated, according to a new ...

Ancient Microbes May Help Us Find Extraterrestrial Life Forms

Using light-capturing proteins in living microbes, scientists helped reconstruct what life was like for some of Earth's earliest organisms. These efforts could help us one day recognize signs of life ...

Supernumerary Virtual Robotic Arms Can Feel Like Part of Our Body

Researchers have developed a virtual robotic limb system which can be operated by users' feet in a virtual environment as extra, or supernumerary, limbs. After training, users reported feeling like ...

Astronomers identify a new class of stellar system. They're not quite galaxies and only exist in ...

Experiment Results Confirm Anomaly Suggesting New Physics Possibility

New scientific results confirm an anomaly seen in previous experiments, which may point to an as-yet-unconfirmed new elementary particle, the sterile neutrino, or indicate the need for a new ...

Watching the Death of a Rare Giant Star

Extreme supergiant stars known as hypergiants are very rare, with only a few known to exist in the Milky Way. By tracing molecular emissions in the outflows around the red hypergiant star VY Canis ...

Quantum Simulator Delivers New Insight

A quantum simulator is giving physicists a clear look at spin-charge separation, a bizarre phenomenon in which two parts of indivisible particles called electrons travel at different speeds in ...

A new study of an old meteorite contradicts current thinking about how rocky planets like the Earth and Mars acquire volatile elements such as hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and noble gases as ...

Astronomers Find Evidence for Most Powerful Pulsar in Distant Galaxy

Astronomers using data from the VLA Sky Survey have discovered one of the youngest known neutron stars -- possibly as young as only 14 years. The dense remnant of a supernova explosion was revealed ...

Astronomers Discover a Multiplanet System Nearby

Astronomers discovered a multiplanet system just 33 light-years from Earth, making it one of the closest known multiplanet systems. The system likely hosts at least two terrestrial, Earth-sized ...

New Maps of Asteroid Psyche Reveal an Ancient World of Metal and Rock

Astronomers have mapped the surface properties of the asteroid Psyche, revealing a landscape of metal and ...

To Find a Planet, Look for the Signatures of Planet Formation

Finding forming planets is a tough but important job for astronomers: Only three planets have ever been discovered caught in the process of forming, and the most recent of these was found just weeks ...

Previously Hidden Protoclusters Could Reveal New Details of Galaxy Evolution

The ancestors of some of the largest galaxy clusters have been hiding in plain sight. New work demonstrates a new technique for identifying the precursors of the most extreme galactic ...

What Quantum Information and Snowflakes Have in Common, and What We Can Do About It

Qubits, the basic building blocks of quantum computers, are as fragile as snowflakes. Now, researchers have come up with a new way of reading out the information from certain kinds of qubits without ...
