Hubble shows farthest lensing galaxy yields clues to early universe
Astronomers have unexpectedly discovered the most distant galaxy that acts as a cosmic magnifying glass. Seen in a new image as it looked 9.6 billion years ago, this monster elliptical galaxy breaks the previous record holder by 200 million years.

Fossils could be discovered on the moon: Signs of ancient life may be littered across the moon
Physicists have tested what would happen if a piece of rock containing microscopic fossils from Earth was launched into space and hit the surface of the moon. The team turned fossil-filled rock into powder which was mixed with water and frozen to replicate a meteoroid.

Numerous unknown jets from young stars and planetary nebulae discovered
Preliminary research findings have identified hundreds of so far unknown jets from young stars, as well as numerous new planetary nebulae in the Galactic Plane.

How NASA's Mars 2020 Rover Will Work (Infographic)
NASA's Mars 2020 mission will send a car-size rover to the Red Planet to collect samples. See how the Mars 2020 rover will work in this infographic., Fri, 01 Aug 2014 00:55:31 GMT

Record-Breaking Cosmic 'Magnifying Glass' Found by Hubble Telescope
In a surprising find, astronomers discovered a faraway galaxy that doubles as a cosmic "magnifying glass." At 9.6 billion light-years away, it could be the most distant such object known to science, NASA announced., Fri, 01 Aug 2014 00:55:31 GMT

Cygnus and the Summer Triangle - August 2014 Constellation Skywatch | Video
The constellation of Cygnus flies high in the night sky with a multitude of targets. The brightest star, Altair, in the Aquila constellation is one of the 3 stars that make the Summer Triangle., Fri, 01 Aug 2014 00:55:31 GMT

Fermi satellite detects gamma-rays from exploding novae
The Universe is home to a variety of exotic objects and beautiful phenomena, some of which can generate almost inconceivable amounts of energy. ASU Regents' Professor Sumner Starrfield is part of a team that used the Large Area Telescope (LAT) onboard NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope satellite to discover very high energy gamma rays (the most energetic form of light) being emitted by an exploding star. The surprising discovery dispels the long-held idea that classical nova explosions are not powerful enough to produce such high-energy radiation.

Computer simulation suggests early Earth bombarded by asteroids and comets
A team of researchers at the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado has created a computer simulation that depicts the first 500 million years of Earth's existence, taking into account collisions with asteroids and comets. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the researchers describe how they built their simulation using crater data from the moon and other planets, and what it likely meant for early Earth.

Research finds numerous unknown jets from young stars and planetary nebulae
For many years astronomers have known that young 'protostars' drive supersonic jets of gas from their north and south poles. However, this is the first time that so many of them have been detected at once. Astronomy & Space News, Fri, 01 Aug 2014 00:55:32 GMT

Exploring Mars in low Earth orbit
In their quest to understand life's potential beyond Earth, astrobiologists study how organisms might survive in numerous environments, from the surface of Mars to the ice-covered oceans of Jupiter's moon, Europa. For now, Earth is our only example of an inhabited planet, and studying the limits of habitability on Earth is a major component of astrobiology research. For this reason, scientists collect data from places on our planet where life is pushed to the absolute limits of adaptability, from the Antarctic to the Arctic, and from smoldering thermal vents to highly acidic rivers.
