Atmospheric tidal waves maintain Venus’ super-rotation, NASA’s Swift mission tallied water from interstellar Comet Borisov, and interview with Patrick Peplowski about MESSENGER at Venus

Atmospheric tidal waves maintain Venus’ super-rotation, NASA’s Swift mission tallied water from interstellar Comet Borisov, and interview with Patrick Peplowski about MESSENGER at Venus

Images from the Akatsuki spacecraft unveil what keeps Venus’s atmosphere rotating much faster than the planet itself, for the first time, NASA’s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory tracked water loss from an interstellar comet as it approached and rounded the...
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...
Researchers learn about the central spherical component in spiral galaxies, Comet Atlas has fragmented into pieces, and talking Mercury with Deborah Domingue Lorin and Jeffrey Kargel from PSI

Researchers learn about the central spherical component in spiral galaxies, Comet Atlas has fragmented into pieces, and talking Mercury with Deborah Domingue Lorin and Jeffrey Kargel from PSI

Researchers from Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço have obtained important results about the central spherical component (the bulge) in spiral galaxies like the Milky Way, shedding new light on our understanding of galactic evolution. C/2019 Y4 ATLAS was...
