Astronomers using data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope have looked for dust-extinguished supernovae in the nuclear regions of 40 luminous and ultra-luminous infrared galaxies within 200 Mpc (652 million light-years). “Our results with Spitzer show that the optical surveys we’ve long relied on for detecting supernovae miss up to half of the stellar explosions happening out [...]

Recently, a pair of NASA studies identified the most likely locations to find pieces of the Moon's mantle on the surface, providing a map for future lunar sample return missions such as those under NASA's Artemis program. If collected and analyzed, these fragments from deep within the Moon can provide a better understanding of how the Moon, the Earth, and many other solar system worlds evolved.

Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), astronomers have detected 8.9-hr variability in both optical and ultraviolet light curves of the recently-discovered hypervelocity white dwarf LP 40-365. LP 40-365 is currently located some 2,000 light-years away in the constellation of Ursa Minor. Also known as GD 492, it belongs [...]

When we fixate an object, its image does not appear at the place where photoreceptors are packed most densely. Instead, its position is shifted slightly nasally and upwards from the cellular peak. Researchers observed such offsets in both eyes of 20 healthy subjects, and speculate that the underlying fixation behavior improves overall vision.
