Yale’s EXPRES looks to the skies of a scorching, distant planet, a new model explains the unique characteristics of Arrokoth, interstellar asteroids found hiding in plain sight, and new comprehensive geologic map of the moon released

Yale’s EXPRES looks to the skies of a scorching, distant planet, a new model explains the unique characteristics of Arrokoth, interstellar asteroids found hiding in plain sight, and new comprehensive geologic map of the moon released

Yale’s Extreme PREcision Spectrometer (EXPRES) is giving a closer look at the atmosphere of a distant planet, a model developed at the Faculty of Physics at the Technion, in collaboration with German scientists at Tübingen, explains the unique properties of...
Crew Dragon to be crewed May 27, impacts on asteroids make regolith, Comet Borisov lends insights, and the California Nebula gloriously ends Spitzer Mission

Crew Dragon to be crewed May 27, impacts on asteroids make regolith, Comet Borisov lends insights, and the California Nebula gloriously ends Spitzer Mission

The first flight of NASA astronauts from U.S. soil in nearly nine years finally has a launch date: May 27. The impact of small bodies hitting an asteroid pulverizes its surface, making new regolith, while seismic shaking produced by the impact causes...
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...
