NASA Astronomers searching the atmospheres of alien worlds for gases that might be produced by life can't rely on the detection of just one type, such as oxygen, ozone, or methane, because in some cases these gases can be produced non-biologically, according to extensive simulations by researchers in the NASA Astrobiology Institute’s Virtual Planetary Laboratory. The researchers carefully simulated the atmospheric chemistry of alien worlds devoid of life thousands of times over a...

Distant Galaxy Shows Evidence Of A 'Red And Dead' Future
2014-07-10 13:45:41

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When galaxies first form they are dominated by gas that, over time, lays the foundation for stars. As more stars form the gas becomes locked up in stellar objects and their core remnants, such as white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. Eventually, the gas will become depleted, leaving behind a cold dead galaxy. This process, however, can look different for varying galaxy types, and astronomers have been looking to...
