Hubble Views Wispy Nebula

Image credit: Hubble
A new photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope shows a nebula formed around a group of young, hot, stars. Designated N44C, the nebula is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby, small companion Galaxy to the Milky Way. It's peculiar because the star located at the centre of the nebula is inexplicably hot - it could be that the star has a black hole or neutron star companion.

Although he was the second human to walk on the moon, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin isn't getting out the space race yet. He's working on plans to develop a massive shuttle that would travel between the Earth and Mars, transferring people and supplies to and from the Red Planet. The shuttle wouldn't actually stop at Mars, it would just drop off people and then use gravity to make a return voyage back to Earth to pick up more people. And although the idea sounds way off, Aldrin, and researchers from Purdue University believe something could be developed by 2018.

Cannibalistic stars May Hold Clues to the Big Bang

A team of UK Astronomers have discovered a new class of cannibalistic stars that may explain one of the mysteries surrounding the Big Bang. These stars formed shortly after the Big Bang but don't contain any lithium -which Astronomers predicted should be there. Astronomers believed that they must have misunderstood some essential aspect about the early universe, but this new research helps explain what happened to the lithium; it was destroyed by the star's interaction with a partner star.
