The First Habitable-Zone, Earth-sized Planet Discovered with TESS
TESS, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, was launched in 2018 with the goal of discovering small planets around the Sun's nearest neighbors, stars bright enough to allow for follow-up characterizations of their planets' masses and atmospheres....
Detection Of Cyclopropenylidene On Titan With ALMA
We report the first detection on Titan of the small cyclic molecule cyclopropenylidene (c-C3H2) from high sensitivity spectroscopic observations made with the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA)....
NASA Says It Found Water Molecules On The Moon's Surface
NASA has announced the discovery of water in a sunlit crater on the moon. The water is likely trapped inside of little glass beads and may one day be useful for astronauts visiting the surface.
Water On The Moon: NASA Confirms Water Molecules On Our Neighbor's Sunny Surface
The breakthrough suggests that water, vital to life on Earth, could be distributed across more parts of the lunar surface than the ice that has previously been found in cold and dark places.
SOFIA Detects Molecular Water on Sunlit Surface of Moon
Using data gathered by the Faint Object infraRed CAmera for the SOFIA Telescope (FORCAST) onboard the NASA/DLR Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), astronomers have detected water molecules (H2O) in sunny Clavius Crater, one of the largest craters visible from Earth, located in the Moon’s southern hemisphere. The SOFIA data reveal water in concentrations of [...]
