SOFIA sees super-heated gas streams churning up possible storm of new stars

Scientists on board NASA's flying telescope, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA, caught sight of roiling material streaming from a newly formed star, which could spark the birth of a new generation of stars in the surrounding gas clouds.

Under construction: Distant galaxy churning out stars at remarkable rate

Astronomers have used NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes to show that a recently-discovered galaxy is undergoing an extraordinary boom of stellar construction. The galaxy is 12.7 billion light years from Earth, seen at a critical stage in the evolution of galaxies about a billion years after the Big Bang.

New telescope chip enables clearer view of alien worlds

In our quest to image exoplanets, we have to contend with one major inconvenience: the blinding light from their host stars. The post New telescope chip enables clearer view of alien worlds appeared first on ExtremeTech.

Our 'Red-Giant' Future --"An Old Star Offers a Sneak Preview of Earth's Future"

Will Earth still exist 5 billion years from now? Old star offers sneak preview of the future

What will happen to Earth when, in a few billion years' time, the sun is a hundred times bigger than it is today? Using the most powerful radio telescope in the world, an international team of astronomers has set out to look for answers in the star L2 Puppis. Five billion years ago, this star was very similar to the sun as it is today.
