The symmetry between matter and antimatter

© Afrim Constantin –

A survey that has used the data collected by the LAT aboard the Fermi space telescope NASA suggests the presence of traces of helical magnetic fields in space, the ‘signature’ of the violation of the symmetry between matter and antimatter, which occurred in the first few moments after Big Bang. The universe is not large.

The new instrument Moonlight will be set up on the first four missions Moon Express to test the principles of the theory of general relativity enunciated by Albert Einstein, increasing our scientific knowledge of the moon, and also increasing the accuracy of the mapping of our satellite that will be used in future missions. Moonlight

Dragonfly Galaxies

The existence of the UDG, Ultra Diffuse Galaxies was confirmed. They are scattered clusters of stars that must accommodate proportionally much dark matter in order to be together. “If the Milky Way was a sea, then these galaxies would be the clouds,” says Pieter van Dokkum of Yale University. An international team of researchers, led

The retirement of white dwarfs

© Afrim Constantin –

Scientists have used Hubble to observe the white dwarfs in the cluster. These dying stars are migrating from the crowded center towards wider orbits outside. Astronomers knew this process but had never seen it in action. The Hubble Space Telescope of NASA / ESA, now 25-years-old, continues tirelessly to give us stunning images that shows

The first quartet of quasar

Thanks to the powerful radio telescope ALMA, astronomers observed what could be the first proto globular cluster ever discovered. A giant molecular cloud extremely dense and massive, scrambled by the collision of galaxies Antennas, but that has not turned any star. Globular clusters – groups spheroidal twinkling of stars, including up to one million participants

The strangler of galaxies

© Afrim Constantin –

Astronomers have solved a riddle that is even partially behind the death of galaxies. In fact, according to a study published in Nature, the leading case concerning the “death” of a galaxy is by “strangulation” due to lack of supply of the raw material that is used to give rise to the formation of new
