Cosmic Dust Rings No Guarantee Of Planets

PASADENA, Calif. (UPI) — Dust rings around distant stars, considered by many as “smoking gun” evidence of orbiting planets, can form on their own, U.S. research suggests. The finding is possible bad news for those who use the structures to guide them to stars in their search for distant planets, and may raise questions about […]

Satellite Takes Most Detailed Earth Photo

MOSCOW (UPI) — A Russian weather satellite has taken the highest-resolution photograph ever captured of Earth in its entirety, astronomers say. The Elektro-L is orbiting Earth on a geostationary orbit more than 22,000 miles above the equator, sending photographs of the entire planet every 30 minutes, Gizmodo.com reported. The images combine multiple light wavelengths, both […]

Turtles’ Epic Long-Distance Journeys Eyed

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (UPI) — U.S. scientists say they’ve been studying how baby loggerhead sea turtles embark alone on a migration that takes them around the entire North Atlantic basin. After emerging from their underground nests on the beaches of eastern Florida, the turtles begin an epic migration that eventually returns then to North American […]

Baby Galaxies Grew Quickly To Sustain Life

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (UPI) — Galaxies in the young universe evolved faster than previously thought, offering the potential for early planet formation and life, Danish researchers say. Astrophysicists at the University of Copenhagen’s Niels Bohr Institute said up until now it was thought it had taken billions of years for stars to form and create galaxies […]

People More Truthful In Text Messages

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (UPI) — Text messaging can reveal more truthful responses to sensitive questions as people are more candid in them than in voice interviews, U.S. researchers say.

Supernova Shows Secrets Of Its Brightness

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (UPI) — A NASA orbiting telescope has observed the first evidence of a supernova shock wave breaking through a cocoon of gas around the star, astronomers say. The findings by the Chandra X-ray Observatory may help explain why some supernova explosions are more powerful than others, a release by the Chandra group at […]

Wall Art From France Said World’s Oldest

DORDOGNE, France (UPI) — Anthropologists say a 1.6-ton block of engraved limestone found in southern France is the earliest evidence of wall art, dating to 37,000 years ago.
