Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have found wildly misaligned planet-forming gas discs around the two young stars in the binary system HK Tauri. These new ALMA observations provide the clearest picture ever of protoplanetary discs in a double star. The new result also helps to explain why so many exoplanets — unlike the planets in the Solar System — came to have strange, eccentric or inclined orbits. The results will appear in the journal N...

ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft has climbed to a new orbit following its daring aerobraking experiment, and will now resume observations of this fascinating planet for at least a few more months.The orbit-raising followed a month of aerobraking that saw the spacecraft surf in and out of the atmosphere at altitudes typically between 131 km and 135 km for a couple of minutes on each of its closest approaches to the planet. Before, normal operations involved an elliptical orbit every 24...

    Department of Space Studies

    University of North Dakota


    The Department of Space Studies in the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at the University of North Dakota invites applications for the position of assistant/associate professor in the field of space engineering.


    Candidates must have an earned doctorate or must have completed all requirements for a doctoral degree before the spring 2013 semester. An established record of research, ability to guide students on research, teaching and service will be considered favorably in evaluation. A broad insight into the interdisciplinary nature of space activities and significant ongoing contact or connections with the space community is highly desirable. A strong interest in, and or record of developing collaborative research projects with external funding, in those fields as they relate to use, developmental and exploration of space, particularly human space exploration, is expected. The responsibilities include guiding and mentoring graduate student research, teaching graduate and undergraduate level courses, and service. The percentage work load within each of these categories is negotiable. Exceptional candidates with experience may be considered for an appointment at associate professor level with credit towards tenure, if appropriate.


    The Department of Space Studies is a strongly interdisciplinary program featuring an M.S. degree in Space Studies and an undergraduate minor. A Ph.D. program in Aerospace Sciences, in collaboration with the Department of Aviation, has recently been approved and will start in fall of 2012. In addition to its on-campus education program, the Department has a large online education program, with the student body (both campus and online) comprised mostly of highly motivated early career professionals seeking a graduate degree for professional advancement or personal interest. Approximately a third of the student body is composed of active duty military personnel and another third are currently employed by NASA or the aerospace industry.
