New research presented at the Workshop on Terrestrial Analogs for Planetary Exploration used the Haughton impact crater in Arctic Canada as a potential analog for impact craters on Titan, one of the targets of the upcoming Dragonfly mission. Plus, giant spinning structures, the slowing of the Milky Way, a blinking star, and volcanoes here on Earth.
The most precise measurements of the universe’s composition and growth have been reported in almost thirty new papers based on Dark Energy Survey observations of 229 million galaxies and covering one-eighth of the sky. Plus, stories from the first day of the AAS conference, all the volcanoes, and mission updates.
Jupiter’s moon Europa, an icy world with a subsurface ocean that interests astrobiologists, may actually be hot enough to melt the interior rock and create volcanoes on the ocean floor. Plus, Ryugu, giant planets, fossil discoveries, Martian glaciers, and this week’s What’s Up!
Physicists have built a pair of microscopic drums and, through quantum entanglement, have found they beat together in perfect synchrony. Plus, dwarf galaxies, China’s Zhurong rover, the East African Rift, and more about ice giants.
New research shows that our galaxy was already in place prior to a major collision with a dwarf galaxy ten billion years ago. Plus, meteor showers, fast radio bursts, tardigrades, climate change, and a science review of Godzilla vs. Kong. No. Really!
After a successful touchdown on Mars last week, the Zhurong lander has sent back both black and white and color images. Plus, pulsars, ocean depths, heavy metal vapor, radioactive elements, and this week’s What’s Up which includes a total lunar eclipse!
