Wenn Zwerge Riesen gebären

Ein Exoplanet fordert aktuelle Modelle zur Entstehung dieser Himmelskörper heraus - Astronomen des CARMENES-Konsortiums haben einen neuen Exoplaneten entdeckt, der nach derzeitigem Wissensstand nicht existieren dürfte. Die Forschungsgruppe unter Beteiligung des Max-Planck-Instituts für Astronomie in Heidelberg fand einen Gasplaneten, dessen Masse im Vergleich zu seinem Mutterstern GJ 3512 ungewöhnlich groß ist. Die Wissenschaftler folgern, dass der Planet wahrscheinlich durch einen gravitativen Kollaps in einer Scheibe aus Gas und Staub entstand, die sich um den damals noch jungen Zwergstern befand. Dies widerspricht dem aktuell weithin akzeptierten Modell der Planetenentstehung, das für das Aufsammeln des umgebenden Gases einen festen Kern benötigt.

As we humble earthlings begin to learn more about the universe and potentially stand on the cusp of great discoveries about the planet Mars, we may not be prepared for what’s in store of us, warns the chief scientist of U.S. space agency NASA.

Dr. Jim Green believes that as two rovers from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) prepare to embark for Mars next summer, humanity could be overwhelmed by the implications of studies to come.

Speaking to the Telegraph, the director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division compared the potential discoveries to Renaissance-era astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus’ theory that postulated that the Earth revolves around the Sun, rather than vice-versa.

The Copernican model, which is credited with revolutionizing science during the 16th century, earned him the condemnation of the Roman Catholic Church due to the model’s impact on the Church’s doctrines relating to astronomy.

“It will start a whole new line of thinking. I don’t think we’re prepared for the results.

I’ve been worried about that because I think we’re close to finding it and making some announcements.”

The ESA’s ExoMars Rover and NASA’s Mars 2020 are set to drill 6.5 feet into the Red Planet’s core to take samples in hopes of finding evidence of life on. The samples will be processed and examined in a mobile laboratory that will look for any traces of organic matter.

The ESA #ExoMars #RosalindFranklin rover is assembled for testing before heading to #Mars in 2020! The bogies we designed + built are shown in a stowed configuration - meaning the legs & wheels on the bogies of the #rover are folded pretty compactly for launch/transit to Mars!

Green said that if scientists find bio-signatures of life in Mars’ crust, a new era of astrobiology could begin.

“What happens next is a whole new set of scientific questions.

Is that life like us? How are we related?

Can life move from planet-to-planet or do we have a spark and just the right environment and that spark generates life – like us or not like us – based on the chemical environment that it is in?”

NASA’s Mars 2020 rover is set to launch next July before making the 140-million-mile trek to Mars and landing on its Jezero Crater in February 2021.

With two high-definition cameras and a detachable helicopter drone, the rover is set to collect an unprecedented batch of visual data and images of the cavernous and cliffy terrain of Mars.

However, the primary mission of the rover is to find signs of life. Habitable environments and biosignatures left in rock are being sought so that samples can be studied back on earth.

The latest research has shown that many planets believed to have always been uninhabitable may have once enjoyed conditions suitable for sustaining life. Earlier this year, NASA’s InSight rover found evidence of a potentially vast global reservoir of water on Mars.

Dr. Green notes that research also suggests the existence of civilizations on other planets. He commented:

 “There is no reason to think that there isn’t civilization elsewhere, because we are finding exoplanets [planets lying beyond the solar system] all over the place.”




De får Nobelpriset: ”Finns planeter som passar för liv”


Bara fem procent av materian i universum känner vi till i form av stjärnor, planeter och allt omkring oss. Resten är okänt och mörkt, vilket en av årets Nobelpristagare i fysik visat.

Två andra pristagare står för första upptäckten av en exoplanet i bana kring en solliknande stjärna.

Premio Nobel de Física fue otorgado a James Peebles, Michel Mayor y Didier Queloz



Los científicos James Peebles, Michel Mayor y Didier Queloz ganaron el Premio Nobel de Física 2019 por su trabajo en astronomía, informó el martes el instituto que entrega el galardón.


Peebles recibió la mitad del premio, mientras que Mayor y Queloz compartieron la otra mitad.


"Los galardonados de este año han transformado nuestras ideas sobre el cosmos", dijo la Real Academia de Ciencias de Suecia al otorgar el premio de 9 millones de coronas suecas (910.000 dólares).


"Si bien los descubrimientos teóricos de James Peebles contribuyeron a nuestra comprensión de cómo evolucionó el universo después del 'Big Bang', Michel Mayor y Didier Queloz exploraron nuestros vecindarios cósmicos en búsqueda de planetas desconocidos. Sus descubrimientos han cambiado para siempre nuestras concepciones del mundo".

La premiación durará hasta la próxima semana. Seguirán el galardón de química el miércoles, literatura el jueves (con dos ganadores, por no haber tenido distinción el año pasado), paz el viernes, y economía el lunes 14.

Para cada premio hay numerosas especulaciones, pero cualquier pronóstico es arriesgado, ya que las listas de los candidatos se mantienen en secreto. En cuanto al Nobel de paz, el comité noruego, que entrega esa distinción, registró este año 301 candidaturas. La activista sueca Greta Thunberg, creadora del movimiento Fridays for Future, contra el cambio climático, es la favorita en las apuestas.

Nobelpriset i fysik – Upptäckten av en exoplanet kring solliknande stjärna   

Årets Nobelpris i fysik går till forskning som ökat vår förståelse av universums utveckling, från Big Bang till idag.

Ena hälften av priset går till James Peebles för upptäckter inom fysisk kosmologi, och andra hälften delas av Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz för upptäckten av en exoplanet i bana kring en solliknande stjärna. Programmet sänds direkt från Kungliga Vetenskapsakademien, där Vetenskapsradions Camilla Widebeck och Gustaf Klarin reder ut upptäckten tillsammans med professorn i teoretisk fysik Lars Bergström.

Girl Scouts can now earn badges in space sciences like astronomy and the search for ET


Through a collaboration with NASA and the SETI Institute, Girl Scouts can now earn badges in space science, from astronomy to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

“Part of science literacy is understanding our place in the big world, in the solar system, in the universe," Pamela Harman, the director of education at the SETI Institute, told Air & Space Magazine. "Once we realize that, I think it’s easier to think about protecting our planet.”

From Air & Space:

Girl Scout cadettes (grades 6-8) can earn the space science researcher badge by investigating properties of light and observing the night sky; seniors (grades 9-10) can obtain the space science expert badge by classifying stars and studying their life cycles; and ambassadors (grades 11-12) seeking the space science master badge will explore exoplanets through activities such as designing a habitat for an alien world.
