First-ever 3-D image created of the structure beneath Sierra Negra volcano

The Galápagos Islands are home to some of the most active volcanoes in the world, with more than 50 eruptions in the last 200 years. Yet until recently, scientists knew far more about the history of finches, tortoises, and iguanas than of the volcanoes on which these unusual fauna had evolved. Now research is providing a better picture of the subterranean plumbing system that feeds the Galápagos volcanoes. Continue reading

Is an earthquake behind the Shroud of Turin image? Radiation from earthquake could have led to ‘wrong’ 1988 dating

Neutron radiation caused by 33 A.D. earthquake could have led to “wrong” 1988 radiocarbon dating of Shroud, suggest researchers. An earthquake in Old Jerusalem might be behind the famous image of the Shroud of Turin, says a group of researchers. They b… Continue reading

Eyemusic sensory substitution device enables the blind to ‘see’ colors and shapes

Using auditory or tactile stimulation, Sensory Substitution Devices (SSDs) provide representations of visual information and can help the blind “see” colors and shapes. SSDs scan images and transform the information into audio or touch signals that use… Continue reading

Innovative instrument probes close binary stars, may soon image exoplanets

Close binary stars cannot be resolved with today’s optical telescopes, despite adaptive optics that removes the fuzziness caused by atmospheric turbulence. An international team of astronomers has built and mounted on a 3-meter California telescope a f… Continue reading

Milky Way gas cloud causes multiple images of distant quasar

For the first time, astronomers have seen the image of a distant quasar split into multiple images by the effects of a cloud of ionized gas in our own Milky Way Galaxy. Such events were predicted as early as 1970, but the first evidence for one now has… Continue reading

Cassini releases image of Earth waving at Saturn

People around the world shared more than 1,400 images of themselves as part of the Wave at Saturn event organized by NASA’s Cassini mission on July 19 — the day the Cassini spacecraft turned back toward Earth to take our picture. The mission has assem… Continue reading

Subaru Telescope’s imaging discovery of a ‘second Jupiter’ shows the power and significance of the SEEDS project

Astronomers have recently discovered and captured an image of the least massive planet ever imaged so far — a so-called “second Jupiter”. This discovery marks an important step toward the direct imaging of much fainter Earth-like planets in the future… Continue reading

Astronomers image lowest-mass exoplanet around a sun-like star

Using infrared data from the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii, an international team of astronomers has imaged a giant planet around the bright star GJ 504. Several times the mass of Jupiter and similar in size, the new world, dubbed GJ 504b, is the lowest-m… Continue reading

Making a mini Mona Lisa: Nanotechnique creates image on surface less than a third the hair’s width

Scientists have “painted” the Mona Lisa on a substrate surface approximately 30 microns in width — or one-third the width of a human hair. The team’s creation, the “Mini Lisa,” demonstrates a technique that could potentially be used to achieve nanoman… Continue reading

Saturn’s Mimas and Pandora: Two moons passing in the night

The Saturn moons Mimas and Pandora remind us of how different they are when they appear together, as in this image taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Pandora’s small size means that it lacks sufficient gravity to pull itself into a round shape like it… Continue reading

Hubble sees a swirl of star formation

The Hubble Space Telescope has captured the image of an unusual galaxy — a beautiful, glittering swirl named, rather un-poetically, J125013.50+073441.5. A glowing haze of material seems to engulf the galaxy, stretching out into space in different dire… Continue reading
