In early May 2015, a NASA-funded sounding rocket will be ready to launch, carrying new technology to peer at the X-rays streaming from a supernova remnant called the Cygnus Loop – and assess what the debris from this 20,000-year-old explosion is made of. Flying such technology will also open the door to probe the deep universe for missing matter believed to exist, but yet to be observed. The mission, called the Off-plane Grating Rocket for Extended Source Spectroscopy, or OGRESS, wi...

NASA's Chandra Suggests Black Holes Gorging at Excessive Rates A group of unusual giant black holes may be consuming excessive amounts of matter, according to a new study using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. This finding may help astronomers understand how the largest black holes were able to grow so rapidly in the early Universe. Astronomers have known for some time that supermassive black holes − with masses ranging from millions to billions of times the mass of t...

Ariane Flight VA22 Arianespace's ability to accommodate multiple missions and a full range of payloads at the Spaceport was underscored once again by the arrival of Europe's Eumetsat MSG-4 meteorological satellite, which is to be lofted later this year by a heavy-lift Ariane 5. MSG-4 arrived yesterday evening aboard a chartered An-124 cargo jetliner that landed at Felix Eboue Airport near the French Guiana capital city of Cayenne. After a nighttime unloading process, the satellite was tra...

A NASA planetary exploration mission came to a planned, but nonetheless dramatic, end Thursday when it slammed into Mercury's surface at about 8,750 mph and created a new crater on the planet's surface. Mission controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, have confirmed NASA's MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft impacted the surface of Mercury, as anticipated, at 3:26 p.m. EDT. Mission con...

For the past several years, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab) have been planning the construction of and developing technologies for a very special instrument that will create the most extensive three-dimensional map of the universe to date. Called DESI for Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, this project will trace the growth history of the universe rather like the way you might track your child's height with pencil marks climbing up a...
