Astrophysicists report radioactive cobalt in supernova explosion
Astrophysicists have detected the formation of radioactive cobalt during a supernova explosion, lending credence to a corresponding theory of supernova explosions.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope witnesses asteroid smashup
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has spotted an eruption of dust around a young star, possibly the result of a smashup between large asteroids. This type of collision can eventually lead to the formation of planets.

Researchers use NASA and other data to look into the heart of a solar storm
Scientists found that the CME contained a rare piece of dense solar filament material. This filament coupled with an unusually fast speed led to the large amount of solar material observed.

How NASA Is Tracking Earth's Melting Arctic Sea Ice (Video)
A new NASA mission launched in the Arctic this week could help scientists learn more about Earth's changing climate., Fri, 29 Aug 2014 21:11:59 GMT

Film Students Play Starring Role in Stratospheric Balloon Launch (Video)
When you think of the U.S. Air Force, the Federal Aviation Authority and the FBI, a team of starry-eyed film students may not necessarily come to mind as a potential partner for science., Fri, 29 Aug 2014 21:11:59 GMT

As Space Shuttle Discovery Turns 30, Smithsonian Curator Shares Orbiter Secrets
NASA's retired space shuttle Discovery will mark the 30th anniversary of its first launch being admired by fans of all ages, according to the Smithsonian's curator charged with its care., Fri, 29 Aug 2014 21:11:59 GMT

Mysteries of space dust revealed
The first analysis of space dust collected by a special collector onboard NASA's Stardust mission and sent back to Earth for study in 2006 suggests the tiny specks open a door to studying the origins of the solar system and possibly the origin of life itself.

A guide to the 2014 Neptune opposition season
Never seen Neptune? Now is a good time to try, as the outermost ice giant world reaches opposition this weekend at 14:00 Universal Time (UT) or 10:00 AM EDT on Friday, August 29th. This means that the distant world lies "opposite" to the Sun as seen from our Earthly perspective and rises to the east as the Sun sets to the west, riding high in the sky across the local meridian near midnight.

Thermonuclear X-ray bursts on neutron stars set speed record
A new study of thermonuclear X-ray bursts on neutron stars reveals that, on very rare occasions, shells can be expelled at relativistic speeds - up to 30% of the speed of light. These velocities are the highest ever measured for a cosmic thermonuclear event, including novae and thermonuclear supernovae. This phenomenon, discovered in only 0.1 second worth of data in 40 years of space-based X-ray astronomy, sheds new light on how nuclear flames spread over surfaces of neutron stars. The research results have been published in Astronomy & Astrophysics. Astronomy & Space News, Fri, 29 Aug 2014 21:12:00 GMT

How can we find tiny particles in exoplanet atmospheres?
It may seem like magic, but astronomers have worked out a scheme that will allow them to detect and measure particles ten times smaller than the width of a human hair, even at many light-years distance.  They can do this by observing a blue tint in the light from far-off objects caused by the way in which small particles, no more than a micron in size (one-thousandth of a millimeter) scatter light.
