Astronomers Report That Venus' Atmosphere Contains an Amino Acid Found in DNA

Astronomers Report That Venus' Atmosphere Contains an Amino Acid Found in DNA

Does it feel like all eyes are on these days? The discovery of the potential biomarker phosphine in the planet's upper atmosphere last month garnered a lot of attention, as it should. There's still some uncertainty around what the phosphine discovery means, though. Now a team of researchers claims they've discovered the amino acid glycine in Venus' atmosphere.The paper announcing the finding is titled ''. The lead author is Arijit Manna, a Ph.D. Research Scholar in the Dept. of Physics at Midnapore College in West Bengal, India. The paper is at the pre-print site arxiv.org, which means it...

We Now Have Proof a Supernova Exploded Perilously Close to Earth 2.5 Million Years Ago

We Now Have Proof a Supernova Exploded Perilously Close to Earth 2.5 Million Years Ago

In its 4.5 billion year history, Earth has had to run the gauntlet. Numerous catastrophes have imperilled the planet, from massive impacts, to volcanic conflagrations, to frigid episodes of snowball Earth. Yet life persists. Among all of the hazards that threaten a planet, the most potentially calamitous might be a nearby star exploding as a supernova. When a massive enough star reaches the end of its life, it explodes as a supernova (SN). The hyper-energetic explosion can light up the sky for months, turning night into day for any planets close enough. If a planet is too close, it will...

Chinese Asteroid Mining Robot Due to Launch in November

Chinese Asteroid Mining Robot Due to Launch in November

Does it seem like science is catching up with science fiction? Sometimes it does. Especially when there’s an announcement like this one. A Chinese company says that they’ll be launching an asteroid-mining robot by November. Origin Space is a private company based in Beijing. Though they’re calling this an “asteroid mining robot,” it’s really a pre-cursor mission to actual mining. In reality, NEO-1 as it’s called, will be testing technologies aimed at the eventual mining of asteroids. According to multiple news sources, NEO-1 will be launched on a Chinese Long March rocket as a secondary...

Astronomers Use Supercomputer to Model a Hypernova For 300 Days After Explosion

Astronomers Use Supercomputer to Model a Hypernova For 300 Days After Explosion

The answers to many questions in astronomy are hidden behind the veil of deep time.One of those questions is around the role that supernovae played in the early Universe. It was the job of early supernovae to forge the heavier elements that were not forged in the . How did that process play out? How did those early stellar explosions play out? A trio of researchers turned to a supercomputer simulation to find some answers.Their results are presented in a paper titled ''. The lead author is Ke-Jung Chen from the Academia Sinica, Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics, Taiwan. The paper is...

A Radical Hypothesis Says Planet Nine Could Be a Black Hole. Here's How to Find Out

A Radical Hypothesis Says Planet Nine Could Be a Black Hole. Here's How to Find Out

A comet-eating black hole the size of a planet? It's possible. And if there's one out there in the distant Solar System, a pair of researchers think they know how to find it.If they do, we might finally put the Planet Nine issue to rest. The researchers are Avi Loeb, a Professor of Science at Harvard, and Amir Siraj, a Harvard undergraduate student. The paper outlining their thinking is titled " It's been accepted by The Astrophysical Journal Letters.Out beyond the orbit of Neptune, a cluster of Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs) is shepherded together gravitationally by some body with enough mass...
