Kepler Finds Two Planets That May Support  Alien Life

NASA’s Kepler space telescope has spotted four possibly rocky alien planets orbiting the same star, and two of these newfound worlds might be capable of supporting life. The four exoplanets circle a red dwarf — a star smaller and dimmer than the sun — called K2-72, which lies 181 light-years from Earth in the Aquarius constellation. All four worlds are between 20 percent and 50 percent wider than Earth, making them good candidates to be rocky, discovery team members said. Two of the four...

Are The Edges Of The Haibitable Zone Liveable

Earth is situated right in the middle of our sun’s “habitable zone,” and it’s a comfortable place for life. We enjoy a relatively stable climate and the right amount of warmth to allow liquid water. But new research is showing a dramatically different scenario for planets at the outer edge of a star’s habitable zone. That boundary is a dangerous place for life, exhibiting long ice ages with only short bursts of a temperate climate, scientists say — a scenario that...

Astronomers Find Black Hole In The Early Universe

Astronomers Find Black Hole In The Early Universe

A bright galaxy in the early universe likely contains a mysterious kind of black hole that had previously existed only in theory, a new study suggests. This probable “direct-collapse” black hole may help explain how supermassive black holes — the light-gobbling behemoths that lurk at the hearts of most, if not all, galaxies — got their start, researchers said. “The special aspect of this [direct-collapse] process is that it leads to the formation of a very massive ‘seed’...

Users of Microsoft’s OneDrive have begun receiving notifications that their storage allotments have already, or will soon be, reduced to 5GB.

The free amount was to be lowered from 15GB to 5GB, and another 15GB that many had — the photograph-specific “Camera Roll” bonus that had been given to any who asked...

Astronomers Finally Discover A Star’s Snowline

For the first time, astronomers have caught a glimpse of the water snow line around a star — the point in the young star’s orbiting disk of debris where snow and ice first appear. Normally, that boundary huddles too close to the star for astronomers to see it, but this particular star had a sudden burst of brightness that superheated its disk, obliterating ice further out than usual. Researchers are excited to spot their first stellar snow line because of the vital part it plays in the formation...
