The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured this striking view of spiral galaxy NGC 7714. This galaxy has drifted too close to another nearby galaxy and the dramatic interaction has twisted its spiral arms out of shape, dragged streams of material out into space, and triggered bright bursts of star formation. NGC 7714 is a spiral galaxy at 100 million light-years from Earth - a relatively close neighbour in cosmic terms. The galaxy has witnessed some violent and dramatic events in its...

Two of the five instruments scheduled to fly on the nation's next polar-orbiting weather satellite, NOAA's Joint Polar Satellite System -1, have been integrated to the spacecraft bus by prime contractor Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite-Nadir (OMPS-N) along with the Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instruments are now aboard the spacecraft. Next up is the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) set to arrive in February. The sa...

Vega Flight VV04 Preparations are moving forward for next month's Vega flight, with its Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle (IXV) passenger now integrated in the lightweight launcher's payload fairing. During activity at the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility on Monday, IXV was installed on the cone-shaped adapter that serves as its interface with Vega - the smallest member of Arianespace's launch vehicle family. Today, IXV was encapsulated inside Vega's payload fairing, which will...

Astronomers using data from NASA's Kepler mission have discovered a planetary system of five small planets dating back to when the Milky Way galaxy was a youthful two billion years old. The tightly packed system, named Kepler-444, is home to five planets that range in size, the smallest comparable to the size of Mercury and the largest to Venus. All five planets orbit their sun-like star in less than ten days, which makes their orbits much closer than Mercury's sweltering 88-day o...

Researchers studying data from NASA's Cassini mission have observed that Saturn's largest moon, Titan, behaves much like Venus, Mars or a comet when exposed to the raw power of the solar wind. The observations suggest that unmagnetized bodies like Titan might interact with the solar wind in the same basic ways, regardless of their nature or distance from the sun. Titan is large enough that it could be considered a planet if it orbited the sun on its own, and a flyby of the giant m...
