Today's earth & space headlines from the sources selected by our team:

Supernovas help 'clean' galaxies
Astronomers have found that the black holes located at the cores of galaxies launch fountains of charged particles, which can stir up gas throughout the galaxy and temporarily interrupt star formation. But unless something intervenes, the gas will eventually cool and start forming stars again.

Monitoring magnetospheres: Debunking theory behind massive stars
Students researching magnetic, massive stars, have uncovered questions concerning the behavior of plasma within their magnetospheres.

Hubble revisits tangled NGC 6240
NGC 6240 lies 400 million light-years away in the constellation of Ophiuchus (The Serpent Holder). This galaxy has an elongated shape with branching wisps, loops and tails. This mess of gas, dust and stars bears more than a passing resemblance to a butterfly and a lobster. New research is untangling the reasons for its odd shape.

NASA to Move Space Station Module: Watch Live Wednesday
Flight controllers will robotically move the Permanent Multipurpose Module from the orbiting lab's Unity module over to the Tranquility module. You can watch live here at beginning at 8 a.m. EDT Wednesday, courtesy of NASA TV., Wed, 27 May 2015 11:29:27 GMT

NASA Mission to Europa Will Seek Conditions for Life
The Europa probe will carry supersharp cameras, a heat detector, ice-penetrating radar and a variety of other gear that will help researchers gauge the Jupiter moon's ability to support life as we know it., Wed, 27 May 2015 11:29:27 GMT

New Journal Tackles the Science of Weightlessness
Science experiments done in microgravity or related to space flight can be found in a new scientific journal dedicated to these areas of research., Wed, 27 May 2015 11:29:27 GMT

Image: Europa's Jupiter-facing hemisphere
This 12-frame mosaic provides the highest resolution view ever obtained of the side of Jupiter's moon Europa that faces the giant planet. It was obtained on Nov. 25, 1999 by the camera onboard the Galileo spacecraft, a past NASA mission to Jupiter and its moons which ended in 2003. NASA will announce today, Tuesday, May 26, the selection of science instruments for a mission to Europa, to investigate whether it could harbor conditions suitable for life. The Europa mission would conduct repeated close flybys of the small moon during a three-year period. Astronomy & Space News, Wed, 27 May 2015 11:29:27 GMT

A bubbly cosmic celebration
In the brightest region of the nebula RCW 34, gas is heated and expands through the surrounding cooler gas. Once the heated hydrogen reaches the borders of the gas cloud, it bursts outwards into the vacuum like the contents of an uncorked champagne bottle—this process is referred to as champagne flow. But the young RCW 34 has more to offer; there seem to have been multiple episodes of star formation within the same cloud. Astronomy & Space News, Wed, 27 May 2015 11:29:27 GMT

SUrface Dust Mass Analyzer (SUDA) selected for Europa mission
A University of Colorado Boulder instrument has been selected to fly on a NASA mission to Jupiter's icy moon, Europa, which is believed to harbor a subsurface ocean that may provide conditions suitable for life. Astronomy & Space News, Wed, 27 May 2015 11:29:27 GMT

Image: XMM-Newton self-portraits with planet Earth
This series of images was taken 15 years ago, a couple of months after the launch of ESA's XMM-Newton space observatory. These unique views, showing parts of the spacecraft main body and solar wings, feature a guest of honour – Earth – which crosses the field of view from left to right, as the satellite slews across our planet.
