Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge 28 Oct 2019, 11:07 UTC Scientists at the Kavli Institute have identified hot gas around the most luminous quasar at an epoch when the universe was less than 4 billion years old.
ESA Top News 28 Oct 2019, 10:30 UTC This ghostly image shows what can happen when an interstellar cloud passes too close to a star. Barnard's Merope Nebula, also known as IC 349, is a cloud of interstellar gas and dust travelling through the Pleiades star cluster at a relative speed of 11 kilometres per second. It is passing close to the star Merope, located 0.06 light years away from the cloud, which is equivalent to about 3 500 times the distance between the Earth and the Sun. This passage is disrupting the nebula and creating the wispy effect seen in the image.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center 25 Oct 2019, 13:44 UTC This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows IC 4653, a galaxy just over 80 million light-years from Earth. That may sound like quite a distance, but it’s not that far on a cosmic scale. At these kinds of distances, the types and structures of the objects we see are similar to those in our local area.
NASA's Ames Research Center News and Features 25 Oct 2019, 12:40 UTC NASA is sending a mobile robot to the South Pole of the Moon to get a close-up view of the location and concentration of water ice in the region and for the first time ever, actually sample the water ice at the same pole where the first woman and next man will land in 2024 under the Artemis program.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory News and Features 25 Oct 2019, 07:48 UTC A new selfie taken by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is breathtaking, but it's especially meaningful for the mission's team: Stitched together from 57 individual images taken by a camera on the end of Curiosity's robotic arm, the panorama also commemorates only the second time the rover has performed a special chemistry experiment.
