Other solar system could have as many as seven Earth-like planets, when those solar systems do not have a gas giant planet like Jupiter. The team created a model system in which they simulated planets of various sizes orbiting their …
Using cutting-edge computational techniques, researchers from the Flatiron Institute in New York City and Cornell University have solved the first robust theoretical model of strange metals. The work reveals that strange metals are a new state of matter. Strange metals …
We will be able to take megapixel images of exoplanets by putting telescopes in zones that are 600 to 2000 times the distance of the Earth to the Sun. Getting to 600 times as far away from the Sun we …
We have already directly imaged 322 exoplanets as of February 2020. Young planets that emit infrared light and are far from the glare of the star are the easiest to spot. NASA maintains a list of directly imaged exoplanets. The …
The Solar Orbiter flew within 48 million miles of the Sun and took the closest pictures of the Sun to date. Other spacecraft have been closer, but none have carried Sun-facing imagers. Solar Orbiter carries six imaging instruments, each of …
Team members of the Miniature Radio Frequency (Mini-RF) instrument on NASAs Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft found new evidence that the Moons subsurface might be richer in metals, like iron and titanium, than researchers thought. Using Mini-RF, the researchers sought …
A meter-class telescope with a coronagraph to block solar light, placed in the strong interference region of the solar gravitational lens (SGL), is capable of imaging an exoplanet at a distance of up to 30 parsecs with a few 10 …
If we send telescopes out to 4 light days we can use the gravity of the sun to amplify the power of telescopes by 100 billion times. Although we can build larger telescopes with higher resolution than exists today near …
Xenon Experiments have detected a bunch of energy events in the 1-7 kilovolt data, which could be an indication of dark matter or contamination of their experiments. There are three possibilities for the readings: It could be axions which are …
There may be as many as one Earth-like planet for every five Sun-like stars in the Milky way Galaxy, according to new estimates by University of British Columbia astronomers using data from NASAs Kepler mission. To be considered Earth-like, a …
