NASA Finds Most Distant Black Hole

Has A Mass 800 Million Time Greater Than Our Sun

Scientists have uncovered a rare relic from the early universe: the farthest known supermassive black hole. This matter-eating beast is 800 million times the mass of our Sun, which is astonishingly large for its young age. Researchers report the find in the journal Nature.

First Light For ESPRESSO - The Next Generation Planet Hunter

Device Installed On ESO's Very Large Telescope In Chile

The Echelle SPectrograph for Rocky Exoplanet and Stable Spectroscopic Observations (ESPRESSO) has successfully made its first observations. Installed on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile, ESPRESSO will search for exoplanets with unprecedented precision by looking at the minuscule changes in the light of their host stars. For the first time ever, an instrument will be able to sum up the light from all four VLT telescopes and achieve the light collecting power of a 16-metre telescope.

Meteorites From Mars Suffer A Velocity Boost Due To The Material Pileup

Nearly 200 Meteorites From Mars Have Been Discovered On Earth

Researchers have performed numerical simulations to explore the launch mechanism of Martian meteorites. According to the knowledge of shock physics, a strong shock compression higher than 50 GPa is required to accelerate Martian materials up to the escape velocity of Mars (5 km/s). In contrast, detailed analysis of Martian meteorites shows that they suffer only 30-50 GPa during the ejection.

NASA Studying Link Between Solar Storms And Animal Beachings

Finds That Space Weather Is Not The Primary Cause For Such Events

The age-old mystery of why otherwise healthy dolphins, whales and porpoises get stranded along coasts worldwide deepens: After a collaboration between NASA scientists and marine biologists, new research suggests space weather is not the primary cause of animal beachings — but the research continues. The collaboration is now seeking others to join their search for the factors that send ocean mammals off course, in the hopes of perhaps one day predicting strandings before they happen.

GRACE-FO Satellites Headed For Launch Site

German-Built Gravity Research Spacecraft Are On The Way To Vandenberg Air Force Base In California

The twin GRACE-FO satellites have begun their journey to Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Together with test equipment totalling around 50 tons, the gravity research satellites built and developed by Airbus in Friedrichshafen (Germany) were loaded overnight onto an air freighter at Munich airport and flown to the U.S. Tuesday. GRACE-FO is a joint project between NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) based in Pasadena, California, and the German Research Center for Geosciences (GFZ) in Potsdam.
