(Space Fellowship) NASA-led Study Sees Titan Glowing at Dusk and Dawn

New maps of Saturn’s moon Titan reveal large patches of trace gases shining brightly near the north and south poles. These regions are curiously shifted off the poles, to the east or west, so that dawn is breaking over the southern region while dusk is falling over the northern one. The pair of patches was spotted by a NASA-led international team of researchers investigating the chemical make-up of Titan’s atmosphere. “This is an unexpected and potentially groundbreaking discover&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=E5nphnouw28:QnOxZMB5LEg:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/E5nphnouw28" height="1" width="1"/>

(Space Fellowship) NASA's Fermi Satellite Finds Hints of Starquakes in Magnetar 'Storm'

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope detected a rapid-fire "storm" of high-energy blasts from a highly magnetized neutron star, also called a magnetar, on Jan. 22, 2009. Now astronomers analyzing this data have discovered underlying signals related to seismic waves rippling throughout the magnetar. Such signals were first identified during the fadeout of rare giant flares produced by magnetars. Over the past 40 years, giant flares have been observed just three times -- in 1979, 1998 and 200&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=isbg_ASYEfU:35kwA4LnBWc:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/isbg_ASYEfU" height="1" width="1"/>

During the late afternoon of Oct. 23, 2014, a partial solar eclipse will be visible from much of North America before sundown.  Partial eclipses occur when the moon blocks part of the sun from view. Throughout history, total eclipses, in which the entire sun is blocked from view, have offered scientists the chance to see the faint light of the sun's atmosphere called the corona, without its being overwhelmed by the sun itself.

The research provides crucial new evidence that it is these jets of “radio-frequency feedback” streaming from mature galaxies’ central black holes that prevent hot free gas from cooling and collapsing into baby stars. “When you look into the past history of the universe, you see these galaxies building stars,” said Tobias&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=jYbuEVXIlkg:TQiFSRvVw5M:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/jYbuEVXIlkg" height="1" width="1"/>   

(Space Fellowship) Hubble Sees Turquoise-Tinted Plumes in Large Magellanic Cloud

The brightly glowing plumes seen in this image are reminiscent of an underwater scene, with turquoise-tinted currents and nebulous strands reaching out into the surroundings. However, this is no ocean. This image actually shows part of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small nearby galaxy that orbits our galaxy, the Milky Way, and appears as a blurred blob in our skies. The NASA/European Space Agency (ESA) Hubble Space Telescope has peeked many times into this galaxy, releasing stunning ima&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=6zPC-QniIvY:UiDeaPbx8bU:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/6zPC-QniIvY" height="1" width="1"/>

(ScienceDaily) Heavy metal frost? A new look at a Venusian mystery

Venus is hiding something beneath its brilliant shroud of clouds: a first order mystery about the planet that researchers may be a little closer to solving because of a new re-analysis of twenty-year-old spacecraft data. Venus's surface can't be seen from orbit in visible light because of the planet's hot, dense, cloudy atmosphere. Instead, radar has been used by spacecraft to penetrate the clouds and map out the surface – both by reflecting radar off the surface to measure elevation and by looking at the radio emissions of the hot surface. The last spacecraft to map Venus in this way was Magellan, two decades ago.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/space_time/~4/YKFUJ7-B_xs" height="1" width="1"/>
