Latest and Breaking Space Science News

NASA releases IRIS footage of X-class flare
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On Sept. 10, 2014, NASA's newest solar observatory, the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, or IRIS, joined other telescopes to witness an X-class flare -- an example of one of the strongest solar flares -- on the sun.

Space: The final frontier open to the public
(University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston) Historically, spaceflight has been reserved for the very healthy. Astronauts are selected for their ability to meet the highest physical standards to prepare them for any unknown challenges. However, with the advent of commercial spaceflight, average people can now fly. The aerospace medicine community has had little information about what medical conditions should be considered particularly risky in the spaceflight environment, as most medical conditions have never been studied for risk in space -- until now.

Hubble helps find smallest known galaxy containing a supermassive black hole
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers using data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and ground observation have found an unlikely object in an improbable place -- a monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known.

A massive black hole has been found at the center of an ultra-compact galaxy
(Michigan State University) A team of researchers, including an astronomer from Michigan State University, has discovered a huge black hole at the center of an ultra-compact galaxy -- the smallest galaxy known to contain one.

AGU Fall Meeting: Press registration open, book hotel now
(American Geophysical Union) Discover the latest Earth and space science news at the 47th annual AGU Fall Meeting this December, when about 22,000 scientists from around the globe are expected to assemble for the largest worldwide conference in the Earth and space sciences. This year, the meeting runs from Monday through Friday, Dec. 15-19, at the Moscone Center, 747 Howard St., San Francisco, Calif.

NASA sees Hurricane Edouard far from US, but creating rough surf
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Although NASA's Aqua satellite showed that Hurricane Edouard is far from US soil, it is powerful enough that it is creating dangerous swells along the US East Coast.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Polo intensifying
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical storm warnings now issued for a portion of the Southwestern coast of Mexico as Polo continues to strengthen. Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite showed powerful thunderstorms around the center of the storm.

NASA sees Odile soaking Mexico and southwestern US
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Odile continues to spread moisture and generate strong thunderstorms with heavy rainfall over northern Mexico's mainland and the Baja California as well as the southwestern US. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite measured rainfall rates from space as it passed over Odile.

Nature's designs inspire research into new light-based technologies
(SPIE--International Society for Optics and Photonics) Solutions required for progress on the frontiers of photonics technology are close at hand: in nature, when viewed through the perspective of engineer, says Montana State University optics researcher Joseph Shaw. Along with Rongguang Liang of the University of Arizona, Shaw chaired the 'Light in Nature' conference presenting new research in the field last month at SPIE Optics + Photonics and being published in the SPIE Digital Library.

Big surprises can come in small packages
(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have found a monster lurking in a very unlikely place. New observations of the ultracompact dwarf galaxy M60-UCD1 have revealed a supermassive black hole at its heart, making this tiny galaxy the smallest ever found to host a supermassive black hole.
