Star Walk is enhanced for the new iPad Star Walk is an award-winning Education app that allows users to easily locate and identify 20,000+ objects in the night sky. The 360-degree, touch control star map displays constellations, stars, planets, satellites, and galaxies currently overhead from anywhere on Earth.
Alcaine, a beautiful village which hosted the VIII Río Martín Race, where I experience a clear decrease in my performance, slightly more than 3 months after leaving the Pole. No more red cell excess Welcome to “The Longest Day in my Life”, a blog about the experience of spending a full year at the South Pole hunting for neutrinos. If you are interested in Antarctica, life at South Pole, the polar night, neutrinos or Astroparticle Physics in general, come have a look, feel at home…
Passing Rhea at an altitude of only 620 miles would have given Cassini’s camera an unprecedented detailed view of Rhea’s surface. Where can I see those 12 images shot at close-encounter? Why did the camera then stop taking pictures and not resume again until the craft was 167,000 miles away? Here's why I think the storms on Saturn and Jupiter will disappear. The orbits of the planets in the solar system are strongly connected with enumeration.
In-situ Probing of Radiation-induced Processing of Organics in Astrophysical Ice Analogs—Novel Laser Desorption Laser Ionization Time-of-flight Mass Spectroscopic Studies - Abstract - The Astrophysical Journal LettersUnderstanding the evolution of organic molecules in ice grains in the interstellar medium (ISM) under cosmic rays, stellar radiation, and local electrons and ions is critical to our understanding of the connection between ISM and solar systems. Our study is aimed at reaching this goal of looking directly into radiation-induced processing in these ice grains. We developed a two-color laser-desorption laser-ionization time-of-flight mass spectroscopic method (2C-MALDI-TOF), similar to matrix-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectroscopy. Results presented here with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) probe molecules embedded in water-ice at 5 K show for the first time that hydrogenation and oxygenation are the primary chemical reactions that occur in astrophysical ice analogs when subjected to Lyα radiation. We found that hydrogenation can occur over several unsaturated bonds and the product distribution corresponds to their stabilities.

Well now, this is an interesting discovery: astronomers have found what looks like a "super-Earth" – a planet more massive than Earth but still smaller than a gas giant – orbiting a nearby star at the right distance to have liquid water on it! Given that, it might – might – be Earthlike. This is pretty cool news.
