Cells adapt ultra-rapidly to zero gravity

Tue, 2017-02-28 06:00
(University of Zurich) Mammalian cells fully adapt to zero gravity in less than a minute. Real-time readings on the International Space Station (ISS) reveal that cells compensate ultra-rapidly for changes in gravitational conditions. This new discovery was achieved by an international team headed by scientists at the University of Zurich.

First public data release by the HSC Subaru strategic program

Mon, 2017-02-27 06:00
(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) The first dataset from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP) was released to the public on Feb. 27, 2017. HSC-SSP is a large survey being done using HSC, which is an optical imaging camera mounted at the prime focus of the Subaru Telescope. HSC has 104 scientific CCDs (for a total of 870 million pixels) and a 1.77 square-degree field of view.

Scientists reach back in time to discover some of the most power-packed galaxies

Mon, 2017-02-27 06:00
(Clemson University) When the universe was young, a supermassive black hole heaved out a jet of particle-infused energy that raced through space at nearly the speed of light. Billions of years later, a trio of Clemson University scientists has identified this black hole and four others similar to it that range in age from 1.4 billion to 1.9 billion years old.

From tools to trash: Marshall's payload stowage team tracks it

Mon, 2017-02-27 06:00
(NASA/Johnson Space Center) For many of us spring cleaning is an annual ritual and it will be here before we know it. Imagine trying to keep everything organized year-round in a five-bedroom house where everything floats. And that house is moving 17,500 miles per hour orbiting the Earth 250 miles above us. That's exactly the job of a small team at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Investigating star formation is UMass Amherst researcher's mission

Mon, 2017-02-27 06:00
(University of Massachusetts at Amherst) University of Massachusetts Amherst astrophysicist Stella Offner, who has received a five-year, $429,000 faculty early career development (CAREER) grant from National Science Foundation (NSF), plans to use it not only to study how stars are born, but also to develop interactive online astronomy 'tours' to enhance K-12 science education in local schools.
