The universe is a vast icebox punctuated by far-flung islands of unbearable heat. Places that could be considered comfortable — neither hot nor cold — are so rare as to be essentially nonexistent. Of course, we happily live on one such planet, the only example of true moderation in the entire known universe.

Not so long ago, space itself was thought to register absolute zero, the temperature at which all atomic jiggling terminates, except for some quantum effects. Because heat is simply the movement of atoms, the coldest anything can be is when all such motion has stopped. This happens at –459.67° Fahrenheit (–273.15° Celsius), or 0 kelvin, by definition.

Something strange may be lurking in the outer solar system. The odd orbits of distant space rocks suggest there’s a giant, elusive world dubbed Planet Nine waiting out there to be discovered. But now, in a new research paper, a team of scientists suggest something far stranger may be influencing the orbits of these distant worlds. These astronomers say our solar system may be home to one of the earliest black holes in the universe: a primordial black hole.

The Planet Nine hypothesis
Over the past few years, astronomers have uncovered about a dozen objects in the distant solar system that defy expectations. In addition to a few other odd attributes, this special subset of icy objects orbiting past Neptune, dubbed Trans-Neptunian Objects, or TNOs, all make their closest approaches to the Sun at about the same spot in space.

Astronomers have all but confirmed the universe has at least one galaxy that's woefully deficient in dark matter. The new finding not only indicates that galaxies really can exist without dark matter, but also raises fundamental questions about how such oddball galaxies form in the first place.

The research, posted October 16 on the preprint site arXiv, used Hubble's keen eye to take new, deep images of the ghostly galaxy NGC 1052-DF4 (or DF4 for short). Equipped with fresh observations, the researchers identified the bizarre galaxy's brightest red giant stars (called the Tip of the Red Giant Branch, or TRGB). Because TRGB stars all shine with the same true brightness when viewed in infrared, the only thing that should affect how bright they appear is their distance.

So, by identifying the galaxy's TRGB and using that to determine DF4's distance, the new data essentially confirms the galaxy is located some 61 million light-years away. And according to the researchers, this essentially debunks other studies that claim DF4 is much closer and therefore contains a normal amount of dark matter.

In November 2010, astronomers using NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope announced an astonishing discovery. Emanating from the center of our Milky Way Galaxy are two bubbles made solely of powerful gamma rays.

This would have been strange enough if the bubbles, expanding at 2.2 million mph (3.5 million km/h), were concentric — a bubble within a bubble — with both centered at the galaxy’s core. But no, the two enormous spheres each hover in seemingly empty space above and below the black hole in the Milky Way’s nucleus. They are tangent to each other, touching at the galactic center to form a squat hourglass shape. The entire structure looks like the number 8 or a sideways infinity symbol.

Gamma rays are the bad boys of the electromagnetic spectrum — the highest-energy photons in the universe. To review high school physics, a photon’s energy is a function of its waves’ lengths. Radiation whose waves are a mile apart (radio waves) are weak and benign; visible light has microscopically close-together waves; X-rays, and especially gamma rays, are crammed together with the maximum number of wave crests passing a given point per second.

What's the difference between dark matter and dark energy?
Our universe is dominated by mysterious and invisible forms of matter and energy that have yet to be fully (or even adequately) understood.
By Eric Betz  |  Published: Tuesday, March 3, 2020

Most of our universe is hidden in plain sight. Though we can’t see or touch it, most astronomers say the majority of the cosmos consists of dark matter and dark energy. But what is this mysterious, invisible stuff that surrounds us? And what’s the difference between dark energy and dark matter? In short, dark matter slows down the expansion of the universe, while dark energy speeds it up.

Dark matter works like an attractive force — a kind of cosmic cement that holds our universe together. This is because dark matter does interact with gravity, but it doesn’t reflect, absorb, or emit light. Meanwhile, dark energy is a repulsive force — a sort of anti-gravity — that drives the universe’s ever-accelerating expansion.

Dark energy is the far more dominant force of the two, accounting for roughly 68 percent of the universe’s total mass and energy. Dark matter makes up 27 percent. And the rest — a measly 5 percent — is all the regular matter we see and interact with every day.

Características e capacidades dos futuros lançadores russos Angara.




Angara is the name of a family of modular space-launch vehicles now under development in Russia.
The product line includes small- to heavy-lift launchers featuring payload capabilities of 3.5 to 38 tonnes when launching into low Earth orbit.

The different Angara versions are made up of varying numbers of Universal Rocket Modules: the URM-1 for the first and second stages and the URM-2 for the third stage.

The small-lift Angara 1.2LV uses one URM-1, while the most powerful variant, Angara 5, uses a cluster of five URM-1 common core boosters.
Each common core booster is equipped with one high performance single-combustion chamber RD-191 engine.   

Angara launchers do not use an upper stage when delivering payloads to low orbits. For higher energy orbits such as geosynchronous transfer orbit and geostationary orbit, Angara 5 uses the Briz-M upper stage powered by one S5.98M engine.

The Angara-А5.1L launched in December 2014 consisted of a three-stage Angara-А5 and an ascent unit comprising a satellite mass-size mockup installed on the Briz-M upper stage booster.

The Angara A5 with a Briz-M upper stage launching from Plesetsk Cosmodrome can lift 24.5 tonnes to low Earth orbit, 5.4 tonnes to geosynchronous transfer orbit and 2.8 tonnes to geostationary orbit.

The lift capabilities of the Angara A5V, which is set to be launched from Vostichny Cosmodrome, will be 37.5 tonnes, 13 tonnes and 8 tonnes respectively.

Plans call for the development of a new cryogenic upper stage, the KVTK. It would use the RD-0146D engine and allow Angara A5 to bring up to 2 tonnes more mass to geosynchronous transfer orbit.

The high degree of standardization in the Angara family, combined with its modularity, allows any member of the Angara family to be launched from the same launch pad.

Investigadores portugueses medem "pela primeira vez" variação da idade das estrelas


Uma equipa de investigadores do Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) conseguiu, “pela primeira vez”, medir a variação da idade das estrelas e obter um conhecimento “mais profundo” sobre a formação e evolução de galáxias espirais.

Em comunicado, o IA adianta que o estudo, publicado na revista científica Astronomy & Astrophysics, precisou “de vários anos e bastante poder computacional”.

A equipa de investigadores, que analisou perto de “meio milhão de espetros provenientes de uma amostra com todos os tipos de galáxias espirais (como a Via Láctea)”, conseguiu medir, “pela primeira vez”, a variação da idade das estrelas e perceber como é que essa variação se relaciona com outras propriedades da galáxia, tais como a existência de núcleos ativos ou a massa total de estrelas.

Segundo o instituto, a medição, feita do centro para a periferia do núcleo galáctico, permitiu concluir que as estrelas no centro das galáxias espirais “mais massivas” são mais velhas do que as estrelas localizadas na periferia do núcleo [conhecido por bojo] e, que nas galáxias espirais de menor massa acontece o oposto, ou seja, as estrelas mais jovens estão no centro do núcleo e as mais velhas na periferia.

“Este resultado parece concordar com um estudo prévio da equipa, que já tinha encontrado fortes evidências de um cenário unificado para a formação de galáxias espirais”, esclarece o IA, acrescentando que em oposição à teoria “mais aceite”, as galáxias espirais de pequena e grande dimensão “parecem formar-se da mesma maneira”.

De acordo com o IA, os dados obtidos com o estudo podem também ser usados para determinar “o impacto que os núcleos de galáxias ativos têm na evolução do bojo [conjunto de estrelas encontrado no núcleo da maioria das galáxias espirais] e, por consequência, na própria galáxia”.

“Compreender de que maneira se forma e evolui o núcleo das galáxias é indispensável para a compreensão da formação de buracos negros ‘supermassivos’ [regiões do Universo de grande massa de onde nem a luz escapa] durante a época da Reionização [segunda grande transição de fase do Universo] e como é influenciaram a evolução das galáxias”, sustenta.

Citada no documento, Iris Breda, primeira autora do artigo, adianta que são várias as “lições importantes a retirar do estudo”, mas que a “mais relevante” é a de que os núcleos das galáxias mais massivas “não se podem ter formado num único surto de formação estelar, como é habitualmente aceite”.

“Pelo contrário, estes resultados apontam para um cenário em que os núcleos estelares se foram formando gradualmente, ao longo de dois a quatro mil milhões de anos”, sustenta Iris Bedra, doutorada na Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto (FCUP).

A investigadora afirma ainda que o estudo “suporta a hipótese de que as galáxias menos massivas, que estão neste momento ativamente a formar estrelas no seu centro, parecem-se atualmente com versões em menor escala das galáxias de maior massa aquando dos seus estágios iniciais de evolução”.

Também citado no documento, José Afonso, coordenador do IA, salienta que os “detalhes finos” da formação e evolução das galáxias estão, devido à combinação de observações com modelos e ferramentas computacionais, “finalmente a ser expostos”.

“Estas técnicas serão em breve elevadas a um novo patamar, quando instalarmos o poderoso espetrógrafo MOONS no Very Large Telescope, do ESO. Vamos ter acesso a observações detalhas de milhões de galáxias desde os primórdios da evolução das galáxias, quando o Universo tinha menos de metade da idade atual”, concluiu.

O estudo dos núcleos ativos de galáxias, desde a era da reionização, e o seu impacto na evolução das galáxias é um dos principais eixos de investigação do Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA).

Meet the stars next door
The Sun’s neighbors hide secrets that could help astronomers learn more about our place in the galaxy.

Most of the space in the Milky Way Galaxy can be pretty lonely — a dull, dark void. But our own neighborhood stands out as among the more intriguing places in the universe. Recently, with new telescopic technologies, astronomers have made big strides toward finding all our stellar neighbors. Knowing the stellar cast, they can then project this information into the galaxy at large to help us learn how stars, and even planets, are born and live out their lives. As a result of these studies, astronomers are now learning how our own Sun fits into the overall picture.

What lies beneath Triton's ice
Neptune’s moon Triton shows tantalizing evidence of water beneath its jumbled crust, making it a high-priority target in the search for life.

When VOYAGER 2 flew by neptune and its largest satellite, Triton, in 1989, it revealed a moon with never-before-seen terrain and plumes spurting from the surface. At the time, scientists attributed the plumes to heating from the Sun. But recent advances in understanding ocean worlds such as Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus have raised the possibility that Triton’s plumes may indicate it, too, harbors an ocean under its icy crust — a place where life may have managed to evolve.

Dark matter’s shadowy effect on Earth
Earth’s periodic passage through the galaxy’s disk could initiate a series of events that ultimately lead to geological cataclysms and mass extinctions.

Do geologists dream of a final theory? Most people would say that plate tectonics already serves as geology’s overarching idea. The discovery of plate tectonics 50 years ago was one of the great scientific achievements of the 20th century, but is the theory complete? I think not. Plate tectonics describes Earth’s present geology in terms of the geometry and interactions of its surface plates. Geologists can extrapolate plate motions both back in time and into the future, but they cannot yet derive the behavior and history of plate tectonics from first principles.
Although scientists can interpret the history through the lens of what they see today, an important question remains: Why did geologic events — such as hot-spot volcanism, the breakup of continents, fluctuations in seafloor spreading, tectonic episodes, and sea-level oscillations — occur exactly when and where they did? Are they random, or do they follow some sort of a pattern in time or space?

A complete theory of Earth should explain geologic activity in the spatial domain, as plate tectonics does quite well for the present (once you incorporate hot spots), but also in the time and frequency domains. Recent findings suggest to me that geology may be on the threshold of a new theory that seeks to explain Earth’s geologic activity in time and space in the context of its astronomical surroundings.
