Researchers use new method to calculate interstellar cloud core age

more »

(Phys.org) —A team of space researchers with members from Germany, Finland and the U.K. has calculated the age of an interstellar cloud core using a new chemical analysis method. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes their new technique and explains how measuring chemical changes as cloud contraction occurs can lead to revealing the core's age.

Ebola-infected doctor headed to US for treatment

Ebola virus

A doctor who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone is expected to be brought to the United States for treatment on Saturday. The arrival of Dr. Martin Salia to the Nebraska Medical Center will end the US being briefly Ebola-free.

A different doctor who worked with Ebola and got infected with the virus while working in West Africa was released from a New York hospital on Tuesday, in what was believed to be the last known case of Ebola in the US. That doctor, Craig Spencer, did not know he was infected when he returned last month to New York—a development that set off a huge debate about quarantines and civil liberties.

Ten people have been treated for Ebola in the US in recent months as the outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 5,000 victims in Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia.

Orion Nebula and Trapezium Stars Sticker

Here's a great sheet of stickers featuring a beautiful image from deep space


tagged with: envelope sealers, ornebcsfr, awesome astronomy images, orion nebula, emission nebula, trapezium stars, emission nebulae, dust clouds, hot young stars, star nursery, new born stars

Galaxies, Stars and Nebulae series A gorgeous picture from the deep universe featuring the bubbling, seething mass of gas and dust that is the Orion Nebula, 1500 light years away and the closest star-forming region to us. The nebula is a star nursery in which there are birthing, new-born, young and adult stars. Look carefully in the brightest central region and you'll see the Trapezium, four of the most massive stars in Orion.

THE Port hackathon: Technology to help people

Billions of 'nanoreactors' inform materials design

more »

Imagine building a chemical reactor small enough to study nanoparticles a billionth of a meter across. A billion times smaller than a raindrop is the volume of an E. coli cell. And another million times smaller would be a reactor small enough to study isolated nanoparticles. Add to that the challenge of making not just one of these tiny reactors, but billions of them, all identical in size and shape. Researchers at Cornell have done just that.

Warmth, flowing water on early Mars were episodic

more »

There is ample evidence that water once flowed on the surface of ancient Mars. But that evidence is difficult to reconcile with the latest generation of climate models that suggest Mars should have been eternally icy. A new study suggest that warming and water flow on Mars were probably episodic and related to ancient volcanic eruptions.
