In January, UCI chemistry doctoral student Brenna Biggs visited a dairy farm in Visalia, California where there are lagoons churning with cow manure. Biggs drove around the farm in a white Sprinter van owned by the University of California, Riverside, and the van had nothing in its trunk but empty space and lab equipment.

This simulated galaxy image, representing a structure spanning more than 200,000 light-years, shows the prominent plumes of young blue stars born in gas that was originally rotating and then blown radially outward by supernova explosions.

esearchers from America have simulated what the aftermath of a cluster of supernova explosions may look like in Milky Way-mass galaxies, and the results do not disappoint. The immense energy accelerates high-density gas outwards from the galaxy center. As the gas compresses at the edges of these “super bubbles”, new stars are formed, which continue to be propelled into the outer-regions of the stellar halo. This star-forming mechanism could account for up to 40 percent of stars found in…

The air that pours into your lungs when you breathe travels, on average, at about 10 centimeters a second. But it’s often not just air you’re breathing. There can be dust, pollen, soot and bacteria in air, and now, floating inside the droplets that people emit when they cough and sneeze and talk, there can be the coronavirus.

In new research, astronomers have shown that clusters of supernovas can cause the birth of scattered, eccentrically orbiting suns in outer stellar halos.

The Milky Way could be flinging stars into its outer halo -- a movement triggered by powerful supernova explosions. Supernovas occur when stars explode and lose most of their mass.

Irvine, Calif., April 20, 2020 – Though mighty, the Milky Way and galaxies of similar mass are not without scars chronicling turbulent histories. University of California, Irvine astronomers and others have shown that clusters of supernovas can cause the birth of scattered, eccentrically orbiting suns in outer stellar halos, upending commonly held notions of how star systems have formed and evolved over billions of years.

Stars, galaxies, planets, pretty much everything that makes up our everyday lives owes its existence to a cosmic quirk.

Scientists on Wednesday announced that they were perhaps one step closer to understanding why the universe contains something rather than nothing.

We are getting closer to understanding why the universe is made of matter and not antimatter. It may be all down to how neutrinos change flavours.
