Study Explores Possibility of Life on Moons of Rogue Planets

University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV)

It sounds like the stuff of George Lucas' universe, but it may be real. There may be life on the moons of rogue planets — solitary planets that have been ejected from their host star and which drift through the galaxy. A few observations and some prevailing theories about planet formation and life inspired UNLV astrophysicists to consider this possibility. The results of their study will appear in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

First Particle Tracks Seen in Prototype for International Neutrino Experiment

Brookhaven National Laboratory

The largest liquid-argon neutrino detector in the world has just recorded its first particle tracks, signaling the start of a new chapter in the story of the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). DUNE’s scientific mission is dedicated to unlocking the mysteries of neutrinos, the most abundant (and most mysterious) matter particles in the universe.

Hubble Uncovers Never Before Seen Features Around a Neutron Star

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Astronomers using Hubble's near-infrared vision to look at nearby neutron star RX J0806.4-4123 were.surprised to see a gush of infrared light coming from a region around the neutron star. That infrared light might come from an 18-billion-mile-across circumstellar disk.

Graphene helps protect photocathodes for physics experiments

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne researchers have used thin sheets of graphene to prevent photocathode materials from interacting with air, which increases their lifetimes. Photocathodes are used to convert light to electricity in accelerators and other physics experiments.
