redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Most of us have gotten used to being connected no matter where we go, but if mankind ever starts living or working on the moon or some far-off asteroid, how would they be able to check their email or post killer selfies on Facebook? Thankfully, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are close to a solution. While working with NASA officials last fall, a team from MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory was able to...

Cosmic Clumps Cast Darkest Shadows Ever Recorded
2014-05-22 03:51:02

Whitney Clavin, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Astronomers have found cosmic clumps so dark, dense and dusty that they throw the deepest shadows ever recorded. Infrared observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope of these blackest-of-black regions paradoxically light the way to understanding how the brightest stars form. The clumps represent the darkest portions of a huge, cosmic cloud of gas and dust located about 16,000 light-years away. A new study takes advantage of the...

[ Watch The Video: Star Catcher: Behind The Webb ] Rob Gutro, NASA Catching glimpses of early stars is one of the things that the Near Infrared Camera or NIRCam will do when it flies aboard the James Webb Space Telescope. "Star Catcher" is the title of the newest video in the "Behind the Webb" series that takes viewers behind the scenes to understand more about the Webb telescope. Mary Estacion of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Md. hosts the series....

Basque Research There are objects we cannot see within the range of the visible but which we can with imaging systems that use the terahertz (THz) wavelength. Within this range we can detect, for example, not only a foreign body hidden under clothing, but also determine what material it is made of. David Etayo, a telecommunications engineer and PhD holder of the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre, has been able to identify explosive components not only in their pure state, but also, and...

Light Converted To Sound For Weapons Detection, Medical Imaging
2014-05-20 03:22:07

Nicole Casal Moore, University of Michigan A device that essentially listens for light waves could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum—the terahertz range. So-called T-rays, which are light waves too long for human eyes to see, could help airport security guards find chemical and other weapons. They might let doctors image body tissues with less damage to healthy areas. And they could give astronomers new tools to study planets in other solar systems. Those...

Star Formation -- Star formation is the process by which gas in molecular clouds gets transformed into stars. In the current paradigm of star formation, cores of molecular clouds (regions of specially high density) became gravitationally unstable, and start to concentrate. Part of the gravitational energy lost in the process is radiated in the infrared, another part increases the temperature of the core. The accretion of material happen partially though a circumstellar disc. When...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
