MORE SUPPORT FOR LIFE ON MARS?
Hungarian scientists believe they've found evidence of life on Mars by looking through some of the photographs taken by the Mars Global Surveyor. Three scientists think that dark blue spots visible in the photographs are patches of organisms living beneath the ice. A warning on the Mars Global Surveyor page cautions people from jumping to any conclusions about the spots, though, and the team's theory has been met with skepticism from many members of the scientific community.
HUBBLE POINTS AT A STARBURST GALAXY
Unlike most Galaxies with fairly slow formation, Galaxy NGC 3310 is forming new stars at an incredible rate. The latest photo from the Hubble Space Telescope shows how the Galaxy contains hundreds of star clusters - far more than a normal Galaxy - each of which is a nest of star formation. Astronomers believe this class of galaxy, called Starburst Galaxies, can be caused by a catastrophic collision between two galaxies.
CHANDRA MEASURES GALACTIC CLUSTER'S DARK MATTER
Using the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, Astronomers have been able to determine that galactic cluster EMSS 1358+6245, located 4 billion light years away, contains 4 times as much Dark matter as regular matter. The team determined this figure by measuring the amount of visible matter, and then calculating how much more would be required to keep the cluster from flying apart - the dark matter's gravity is keeping the cluster together, they believe.
