Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Almost a decade ago, scientists using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope found that planet-forming disks around young stars are heated by starlight and glow with infrared light. However, these scientists found that additional infrared light was originating from an unknown source. Now, new models developed by NASA have revealed why these stars emit more infrared light than expected – gas and dust magnetically suspended above the disks...

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...
