The symmetry of the universe
(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Why did anti-matter disappear almost completely from our universe, whereas matter did not? Scientists are attempting to solve this mystery at the European research institute at CERN. Now they published the most precise measurement of the properties of light atomic nuclei and anti-nuclei ever made in the Nature Physics journal. Scientists from the Technical University of Munich are working on new detectors for the ALICE experiment which will allow measurements with even greater precision.

Cosmic recycling
(ESO) Dominating this image is part of the nebula Gum 56, illuminated by the hot bright young stars that were born within it. For millions of years stars have been created out of the gas in this nebula, material which is later returned to the stellar nursery when the aging stars either expel their material into space or eject it as supernova explosions. This image was taken with the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope in Chile.

Story tips from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, September 2015

NASA-NOAA satellite shows fred facing a fizzling future
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Fred was a hurricane on August 31 and weakened to a tropical storm on September 1 after moving through the Cape Verde Islands and the storm faces more obstacles in the coming days. Visible imagery from NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite on September 1 showed a less organized storm than on the previous day.

NASA sees wind shear affecting Hurricane Ignacio
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Ignacio is staying far enough away from the Hawaiian Islands to not bring heavy rainfall or gusty winds, but is still causing rough surf. Infrared satellite data on Sept. 1 shows that wind shear is adversely affecting the storm and weakening it.

NASA's GPM satellite shows double eye-wall in Hurricane Jimena
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Global Precipitation Measurement or GPM core satellite showed a double eye-wall in Hurricane Jimena on Sept. 1 as it moved through the Eastern Pacific and into the Central Pacific Ocean.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite sees Tropical Depression 14E disorganized
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression 14E was born in the Eastern Pacific Ocean early on Sept. 1 when NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed overhead and looked at it in infrared light.

NASA spots Kilo, now a typhoon in the Northwestern Pacific
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Kilo may have formed in the Central Pacific Ocean, but on Sept. 1 it crossed the International Date Line, so it was classified as a typhoon. NASA's Aqua satellite spotted a clear eye in the Category 3 typhoon early on Sept. 1.

The Leopoldina Annual Assembly: Symmetry and Asymmetry in Science and Art
(Leopoldina) 'Symmetry and Asymmetry in Science and Art' is the topic of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina's Annual Assembly on Friday, Sept. 18, and Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015, in Halle (Saale), Germany. Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and Sachsen-Anhalt Minister President Dr. Reiner Haseloff are expected to attend the opening ceremonies.

How to get rid of a satellite after its retirement
(FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology) Researchers at University of La Rioja have developed a new method to eliminate artificial satellites in Highly Elliptical Orbits when they finish their mission. The methodology, which allows for a reduction of both cost and risk, has been tested with the European Space Agency INTEGRAL mission, which will re-enter into the Earth's atmosphere in order to disintegrate in 2029.
