Astronomers Release Most Complete Ultraviolet-Light Survey of Nearby Galaxies

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Using the Hubble Space Telescope's unparalleled sharpness and spectral range, an international research team has created the most comprehensive, high-resolution ultraviolet-light survey of star-forming galaxies in the local universe. The LEGUS data provide detailed information on 39 million young, massive stars and 8,000 star clusters, and how their environment affects their development.

A Bolt of Insight

University of Utah

The Telescope Array detected 10 bursts of downward TGFs between 2014 and 2016, more events than have been observed in rest of the world combined. The team is the first to detect downward TGFs at the beginning of cloud-to-ground lightning, and to show where they originated inside thunderstorms.

Quarks Feel the Pressure in the Proton

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

Inside every proton in every atom in the universe is a pressure cooker environment that surpasses the atom-crushing heart of a neutron star. That’s according to the first measurement of a mechanical property of subatomic particles, the pressure distribution inside the proton, which was carried out by scientists at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.

Orbital Variations Can Trigger 'Snowball' States in Habitable Zones Around Sunlike Stars

University of Washington

Aspects of an otherwise Earthlike planet’s tilt and orbital dynamics can severely affect its potential habitability — even triggering abrupt “snowball states” where oceans freeze and surface life is impossible, according to new research from astronomers at the University of Washington.

Profiling Extreme Beams: Scientists Devise New Diagnostic for Cutting-Edge and Next-Gen Particle Accelerators

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

The world’s cutting-edge particle accelerators are pushing the extremes in high-brightness beams and ultrashort pulses to explore matter in new ways. To optimize their performance – and to prepare for next-generation facilities that will push these extremes further – scientists have devised a new tool that can measure how bright these beams are, even for pulses that last only quadrillionths or even quintillionths of a second.
