Alien Life Could Find a Home in Hidden Oceans on Frozen Worlds at the Edges of Our Solar System

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 09:17

Pluto, whether or not you want to call it a planet, is really really far away from the sun—40 times farther away than Earth is—which means it's really really cold. “These objects need to be considered as potential reservoirs of water and life,” lead author Prabal Saxena, a planetary scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, said in a press release. Saxena and his colleagues studied trans-Neptunian objects, a term scientists use to refer to literally anything in our solar system that orbits out past Neptune—probably hundreds of thousands of objects in all.

Supermassive Black Holes Spotted in Photo of Andromeda Are About to Collide in Megamerger

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 09:13

Two supermassive black holes recently spotted in a picture of the Andromeda galaxy are the closest orbiting pair ever discovered—and could be on course for a catastrophic cosmic collision in as little as 350 years. Andromeda is our closest neighboring galaxy, sitting around 2.5 million light-years away: fairly close, in astronomical terms. Scientists from the University of Washington were studying an unusual object within Andromeda dubbed J0045+41, which they thought to be a special type of star. Another team of scientists had previously identified it as a pair of stars orbiting each other once every 80 days, but the UW team thought something more was going on.

Dark Matter and Dark Energy Might Not Exist—Potentially Forcing a Rethink of Our Understanding of the Entire Universe

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 06:18

Dark matter and dark energy are mysterious, unknown substances that are thought to make up more than 96 percent of the universe. While we may have never directly seen them, they beautifully explain how stars and galaxies move and how the universe is expanding. An introductory lecture on the subject will typically begin by looking at a pie chart of the mass and energy density of the universe.
