(Space Fellowship) One Pilot Dies, Another One Injured in Suborbital Spaceplane Crash

MOSCOW - One pilot died and another one was seriously injured in the suborbital spaceplane SpaceShipTwo crash on Friday in Mojave Desert, California, CNN reported. “One person died and another was seriously injured as a result of Friday's incident involving Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo,“ California Highway Patrol Officer Jesse Borne said, as quoted by CNN.

(Space Fellowship) SpaceShipTwo Destroyed In Powered Test Flight

Virgin Galactic's partner Scaled Composites conducted a powered test flight of SpaceShipTwo earlier today. During the test, the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of SpaceShipTwo. WhiteKnightTwo landed safely. Virgin Galactic's first concern is the status of the pilots, which is unknown at this time. They will work closely with relevant authorities to determine the cause of this accident and provide updates as soon as possible.

An active region on the sun – an area of intense and complex magnetic fields – rotated into view on Oct. 18, 2014.

(ScienceDaily) Oceans arrived early to Earth; Primitive meteorites were a likely source of water, study finds

Earth is known as the Blue Planet because of its oceans, which cover more than 70 percent of the planet's surface and are home to the world's greatest diversity of life. While water is essential for life on the planet, the answers to two key questions have eluded us: Where did Earth's water come from and when? While some hypothesize that water came late to Earth, well after the planet had formed, findings from a new study significantly move back the clock for the first evidence of water on Earth and in the inner solar system.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/space_time/~4/5HnIvP_2dik" height="1" width="1"/>

For their latest discovery, astronomers have found a low-mass, low-density planet with a punctuality problem. The new planet, called PH3c, is located 2,300 light years from Earth and has an atmosphere loaded with hydrogen and helium. Its inconsistency kept it from being picked up by automated computer algorithms that search stellar light curves and identify regular dips caused by objects passing in front of stars.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/space_time/~4/_JUd45JXPrk" height="1" width="1"/>   

(ScienceDaily) Hubble sees 'ghost light' from dead galaxies

The universe is an infinite sea of galaxies, which are majestic star-cities. When galaxies group together in massive clusters, some of them can be ripped apart by the gravitational tug of other galaxies. Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope to probe the massive galaxy cluster Abell 2744 — nicknamed Pandora's Cluster — have found forensic evidence of galaxies torn apart long ago. It's in the form of a phantom-like faint glow filling the space between the galaxies. This glow comes from stars scattered into intergalactic space as a result of a galaxy's disintegration.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/space_time/~4/EN67pLSqr24" height="1" width="1"/>

(ScienceDaily) When did galaxies settle down?

Astronomers have long sought to understand exactly how the universe evolved from its earliest history to the cosmos we see around us in the present day. In particular, the way that galaxies form and develop is still a matter for debate. Now a group of researchers have used the collective efforts of the hundreds of thousands of people that volunteer for the Galaxy Zoo project to shed some light on this problem. They find that galaxies may have settled into their current form some two billion years earlier than previously thought.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/space_time/~4/5vvFFogc-jI" height="1" width="1"/>

(Space Fellowship) Getting to Know You, Rocket Edition: Interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage

Some elements of a rocket can be familiar, like the boosters and engines. But there are several important parts on NASA's new rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), that may be less widely known. Case in point? The interim cryogenic propulsion stage (ICPS). If the SLS was dissected, the ICPS lies just below the Orion capsule, at the top of the SLS. The ICPS is a liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen-based system. On the first test mission of Orion and SLS together, called Exploration Mission-1, the &nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E: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=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E: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=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=sgII9-MEwdk:FCtpYt1mJ2E:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/sgII9-MEwdk" height="1" width="1"/>

(Space Fellowship) Fifteen Years of NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory

This Chandra X-ray Observatory image of the Hydra A galaxy cluster was taken on Oct. 30, 1999, with the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) in an observation that lasted about six hours. Hydra A is a galaxy cluster that is 840 million light years from Earth. The cluster gets its name from the strong radio source, Hydra A, that originates in a galaxy near the center of the cluster. Optical observations show a few hundred galaxies in the cluster.
