New images using data from retired telescopes reveal hidden features in galaxies

The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a satellite of the Milky Way, containing about 30 billion stars. Seen here in a far-infrared and radio view, the LMC’s cool and warm dust are shown in green and blue, respectively, with hydrogen gas in red. Credit: ESA/NASA/JPL-Caltech/C. Clark (STScI) New images using data from ESA (European Space … Read more

Puzzling features deep in Earth’s interior illuminated by high resolution imaging

Credit: CC0 Public Domain New research led by the University of Cambridge is the first to take a detailed image of an unusual pocket of rock at the boundary layer with Earth’s core, some three thousand kilometers beneath the surface. The enigmatic area of ​​rock, which is located almost directly beneath the Hawaiian Islands, is … Read more

Scientists search for features to ID modern, fossil leaves

A machine learning program placed small red boxes on leaf images, indicating tiny sections the computer considered important in identifying the leaf by family group. Scientists placed the circles on the images to represent the hottest areas on the heat maps and compared them across families to find new ways to describe what the computer … Read more

‘Pressure bumps’ in sun’s protoplanetary disk explaining many solar system features — ScienceDaily

Before the solar system had planets, the sun had rings — bands of dust and gas similar to Saturn’s rings — that likely played a role in Earth’s formation, according to a new study. “In the solar system, something happened to prevent the Earth from growing to become a much larger type of terrestrial planet … Read more
