Stellar Girocronologia

© Afrim Constantin –

It is very difficult to measure the changes in brightness as they are typically less than 1% and can take several days before a spot crosses the stellar disk. However, researchers have achieved the exploit thanks to the extremely sensitive observations made by NASA’s Kepler who provided continuous and accurate measurements of the brightness of

At the 225th meeting of the ACD, which is taking place these days in Seattle, a group of researchers led by Soren Meibom from the CfA, presented the results of their study on the application of a method that will allow us to determine more accurately the age of the stars. It is a new,

Life on Super-Earths?

© Afrim Constantin –

Once formed may also be preserved for billions of years: the oceans of Super-Earths and exoplanets are a reality. It is provided by the vehemence of a nearby (too close) red dwarf that does not make the oceans evaporate quickly. To imagine how life could have formed on other planets, the liquid water is an

Dawn approaches to Ceres

© Afrim Constantin –

This dwarf planet is the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and is also one of the most enigmatic. Among the objectives of the NASA probe, one is to investigate the role of water in the early stages of the primordial Solar System. Lacking a little over three months, NASA’s Dawn

Dark energy is a false problem?

© Afrim Constantin –

In the first part, we spoke about the potential of dark energy and its consequences in the Universe. Now, we will continue the article with more details about the dark energy. Starting from the so-called absolute transformation Lorentz and suitably selecting a preferred reference system, relative to which one has the time dilation directional (for

Dark energy is a false problem?

© Afrim Constantin –

Dark energy is the deepest mystery of modern cosmology. Astronomers believe that this is an unknown form of energy that seems responsible for the accelerated expansion of the Universe. Today, in a new study led by Professor Edward Kipreos from the University of Georgia, suggests a new approach that if you change the way you

The story of an ancient Martian meteorite

© Afrim Constantin –

Some new analyses were made on a sample of Martian rock collected in Antarctica 30 years ago by some meteorite hunters. Investigations revealed an accurate recording of the climatic conditions of the red planet millions of years ago, probably when the water flowed on its surface and any possible form of life would find the
