Star survives close call with a black hole, researchers use ‘hot Jupiter’ data to mine exoplanet chemistry, and Dr. David Grinspoon talks his “Funky Science Story Hour”

Star survives close call with a black hole, researchers use ‘hot Jupiter’ data to mine exoplanet chemistry, and Dr. David Grinspoon talks his “Funky Science Story Hour”

A star that had a brush with a giant black hole and lived to tell the tale through exclamations of X-rays, Cornell astronomers have improved a model to gauge the temperatures of exoplanets, and Dr. David Grinspoon talks his “Funky Science Story Hour” on Facebook Live....
OSIRIS-REx spacecraft rehearses touching down on asteroid Bennu, deep sea vents could have kick-started life, and star orbiting the supermassive black hole moves as predicted by relativity, plus interview with astronomer Riley Connors

OSIRIS-REx spacecraft rehearses touching down on asteroid Bennu, deep sea vents could have kick-started life, and star orbiting the supermassive black hole moves as predicted by relativity, plus interview with astronomer Riley Connors

NASA’s first asteroid-sampling spacecraft is one step closer to touching down on asteroid Bennu. By mimicking rocky seafloor chimneys in the lab, scientists have produced new evidence that these features could have provided the right ingredients to kick-start life. A...
