Meet HD 189733b: An Infernal Exoplanet With Terrifying Atmosphere

April 13, 2015 |

For the first time, astronomers from the Universities of Geneva and Bern, have succeed to measure the temperature of the atmosphere of exoplanet HD 189733b with impressive precision, by crossing two approaches. Read More

Astronomers Find Basic Ingredients For Life In Infant Star System

April 13, 2015 |

For the first time, scientists have detected the presence of complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life, in a rotating disk of dense gas surrounding a young star (infant star system). This finding suggests, again, that the conditions that spawned life on Earth are not unique in the universe. Read More

Universe May Not Accelerating As Fast As Previously Thought

April 11, 2015 |

How fast the universe has been expanding since the Big Bang is something of a puzzling question. It wasn’t that long enough that we didn’t know it was accelerating at all, and a new study finds the acceleration of the expansion of the universe might not be as fast as thought. Read More
