*Monster planet discovery rewrites the text books Astronomers have discovered a large Jupiter sized planet orbiting around a small red dwarf star. It’s the first time such a large planet has been seen orbiting such a low mass host star. 

*Possible ancient ocean remnants found on Ceres Scientists have detected widespread reserves of minerals containing water on the dwarf planet Ceres. The discovery by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft suggests that the 945 kilometre wide world may have once had a global ocean and may still have liquid today. 

*The Rochechouart Astrobleme Geologists have begun an intense core drilling campaign at Rochechouart in central France to study an astrobleme. The Rochechouart Astrobleme is thought to be the remains of a 20 to 30 kilometre wide 207 million year old impact crater. 

*New clues to the origin of life on Earth Chemists at The Scripps Research Institute have found a compound that may have been a crucial factor in the origins of life on Earth. Origins-of-life researchers have hypothesized that a chemical reaction called phosphorylation may have been crucial for the assembly of three key ingredients in early life forms: 

*Antares launches Cygnus bound for the International Space Station A Cygnus cargo ship has successfully launched aboard an Antares rocket bound for the International Space Station.

Podcast cover

Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 48. 

  *A bounty of Brown Dwarfs and planets discovered deep in the Orion Nebula New technology allowing astronomers to peer deeper into the heart of the Orion Nebula than ever before, has revealed a massive population of previously unseen planets and brown dwarfs. The discovery shows that the Orion Nebula may be forming proportionally far more low-mass objects than closer and less active star formation regions. *Astronomers produce the most detailed map yet of the visible universe. Astronomers have produced the largest-ever, three-dimensional map yet of the visible universe -- showing some 1.2 million galaxies -- covering over a quarter of the sky and mapping out the structure of the universe over a volume of 650 cubic billion light-years. The new map allows scientists to make the best measurements so far of the effects of a mysterious force called dark energy on the expansion of the universe and consequently the ultimate fate of the cosmos. *Astronomers discover how the fabled man in the moon got his right eye A new study has discovered that a huge asteroid or protoplanet which crashed into the Moon 3.8 billion years ago was responsible for giving the fabled man in the moon his right eye. The massive 250 kilometre wide space rock created the Moon’s iconic Imbrium Basin as a result of the impact. This new size estimate means the Imbrium impactor was at least two times larger and 10 times more massive than previous estimates. *NASA’s mission to touch the Sun NASA’s first mission to “touch” the Sun has passed a critical development milestone keeping it on track for launch in July 2018. The Solar Probe Plus mission will send a spacecraft on a series of data-collecting runs through the Sun’s atmosphere.

*Solving a black hole mystery Astronomers have for the first time measured the acceleration zone of a powerful jet of plasma being shot deep into space by a feeding black hole. The findings indicate these intense plasma streams are charged within 30 thousand kilometres of the black hole itself. 

*Mars 2020 Rover will have 23 eyes NASA says improvements in camera technology mean its next rover to Mars will have no fewer than 23 cameras, to create sweeping panoramas, reveal obstacles, study the atmosphere, and assist science instruments. 

*Rare Mariner’s astrolabe discovered Marine archaeologists have recovered a rare Mariner’s Astrolabe in a shipwreck off the coast of Oman. The astrolabe -- stamped with the Portuguese royal coat of arms -- was found in the wreckage of the 500-year-old Portuguese ship Esmeralda -- part of a fleet of 20 vessels under the command of the explorer Vasco da Gama who in 1498 discovered a direct route from Europe to India. 

*Strange auroral activity discovered on Jupiter It’s been discovered that Jupiter's intense northern and southern auroral lights pulse independently of each other. The findings indicate that very high-energy X-ray emissions at Jupiter's south pole consistently pulse every 11 minutes. However, those at the Jovian north pole are erratic. 

*November Skywatch We check out the celestial sphere for November on Skywatch. And just like October -- November see’s three meteor showers -- November Orionids, the Taurids, and the Leonids.

Stuart here with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 15. 

*A spinning gas halo discovered around the Milky Way Astronomers have been surprised to discover that a halo of hot gas surrounding the Milky Way galaxy is spinning in the same direction and at a comparable speed to the galaxy’s disk. Scientists had thought this enormous reservoir of hot gas remained stationary while the Milky Way spins inside it. *The Square Kilometer Array reaches another milestone Scientists have completed another key step in their efforts to build what will be the world’s largest radio telescope, the SKA or Square Kilometer Array. Researchers have successfully tested astronomical verification of a critical sub-system for the giant telescope known as the frequency synchronisation system. *Farewell to Rosetta’s Philae lander European Space Agency mission managers have formally switched off the system on the Rosetta spacecraft which provides communications links between the orbiter and its tiny Philae lander. Switching off the system is part of the preparations for Rosetta's end of mission which is slated for September 30. Scientists figured out last common ancestor of all living things *Scientists think they’ve worked out the genetic make-up of the last common ancestor of all living things. Researchers found our earliest common ancestor probably consisted of just 355 genes and made its living around superheated deep sea hydrothermal vents about four billion years ago. *The annual Delta Aquariid Meteor shower underway The annual Delta Aquariid Meteor shower is at its peak with the best viewing about now because it coincides with a new moon providing darker skies. The shower is best for observed from the Southern hemisphere.

The team made the discovery using the old Molonglo radio telescope 40 kilometres from Canberra. *Astronomers identify purest, most massive brown dwarf Astronomers have discovered the most massive brown dwarf ever seen. The record breaking object, known as SDSS J0104+1535 has the purest composition of any brown dwarf ever observed. *Event Horizon telescope deployed to study black holes Astronomers have deployed a powerful array of telescopes to undertake the first ever detailed image of the black hole at the centre of our galaxy. The Event Horizon Telescope is an international joint effort to link some of the world’s most powerful radio telescopes to examine Sagittarius A Star -- a supermassive black hole some 4.3 million times the mass of our Sun – located some 27 thousand light years away – in the galactic centre. *New Horizons already halfway from Pluto to its next target Nasa’s New Horizons spacecraft is now halfway from its close encounter with Pluto to its flyby of Kuiper Belt object 2014 MU69. The probe will encounter the distant world on January 1st 2019. *Biggest wave ever recorded The World Meteorological Organization have announced confirmation of the biggest wave ever detected – measuring some 19 metres or 62.3 feet tall as tall as a six story building.

Happy New Year!

*Fireworks predicted from Rare Stellar Encounter in 2018 Astronomers are gearing up for high-energy fireworks in the next few months when a pulsar plows through the outer atmosphere of one of the galaxy’s brightest stars. The cosmic light show spectacular will occur just 5000 light years from Earth – astronomers aren’t sure exactly when – but it will be soon. 

*Bright Areas on Ceres Suggest Geologic Activity If you could fly aboard NASA's Dawn spacecraft, the surface of the dwarf planet Ceres would generally look quite dark, but with notable exceptions. These exceptions are the hundreds of bright areas that stand out in images Dawn has returned. 

*2018 promises to be another stellar year for astronomy There’ll be three partial Solar Eclipse in 2018. And as solar eclipses always occur about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse there’ll be a couple of total lunar eclipses as well. 

*Cometary close encounter The next big cometary visitor scheduled to make a close encounter with Earth is the comet 46P/Wirtanen which will appear in time for Christmas 2018. 

*The Science Report A new study confirms that gay kids are far more likely to commit suicide. Same sex couples are generally happier than straight or bi couples. Climate change made Hurricane Harvey three times more likely and 15 percent more intense. New computer simulations provide some surprises about the Yellowstone super volcano. Humans may have reached their maximum limits for height, lifespan and physical performance. Experts warn of a significant peak in chocolate poisoning for dogs and cats over the holidays.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) * New warning signs for supernovae discovered Astronomers have detected a potential new warning sign displayed shortly before a star is destroyed in a supernova explosion. A report claims the progenitor stars of core collapse or Type II supernovae – display significant instability in the final Earth year leading up to their cataclysmic destruction. *More tantalizing hints of possible past life on Mars Scientists re-examining minerals originally studied years ago by NASA’s Mars rover Spirit, now believe they could represent a tantalizing possible biological marker for past life on the red planet. The minerals – known as opaline silica deposits – were examined by the six wheeled golf cart sized robotic rover in 2007 -- near a circular geological feature called Home Plate in the Inner Basin of the Columbia Hills region in the red planet’s Gusev Crater. *Giant cold spot discovered on Jupiter Astronomers have discovered a great cold spot on Jupiter. The newly found feature is comparable in size to Jupiter’s famous great red spot which dominates the Jovian southern hemisphere. A report claims the phenomenon, may have existed for thousands of years. *Space weather on Uranus Scientists has discovered surprisingly strong space weather activity on the distant planet Uranus. Researchers combined two new images of the ice giant taken by NASA’s Earth orbiting Hubble Space Telescope with earlier observations by NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft taken back in 1986. *Expedition 50 crew return to Earth Three members of the expedition 50 crew aboard the International Space Station Have returned safely to Earth after more than 173 days in orbit. Their Soyuz MS-02 capsule landed with a bumpy touchdown and roll on the cold Kazakhstan Steppe 52 minutes after undertaking their de-orbit burn 400 kilometres above the planet.

*The Universe has lost up to five percent of its dark matter 

The Universe may have lost between two and five percent of its dark matter since the big bang. The findings could explain one of the biggest mysteries in physics – namely why the Universe appears to behave slightly differently now compared to shortly after its formation13.8 billion years ago. The new study could also fresh shed light on how the cosmos is likely to evolve into the future. 

*JUNO completes third close flyby of Jupiter 

NASA’s Juno spacecraft has successfully completed its third close flyby of the planet Jupiter. At the time of closest approach -- called perijove -- Juno skimmed just 4,150 kilometres above the gas giant's roiling cloud tops -- traveling at 57.8 kilometres per second -- relative to the planet. 

*China places satellites into the wrong orbit 

Beijing won’t admit it but one of its Long March rockets has placed two new Earth observation satellites in the wrong orbit. The mission was carrying two of Beijing’s newest and most advanced SuperView 1 high-resolution Earth Observation satellites as well as a small cubesat.
