Pre-solar Dust Grains act as source to explore Classical Nova

A team of physicists at Michigan State University (MSU) is conducting an investigation into microscopic dust grain that may have emitted from stellar explosions that took place before the formation of the sun. The particles of stardust were found from a meteoritic material on earth. The investigation could lead to new insight into our galaxy.

Map of Milky Way Captured via APEX Telescope Released

The Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope has completed a new map named APEX Telescope Large Area Survey of the Galaxy (ATLASGAL) for Milky Way galaxy. Astronomers can observe well into cold, dense gas floating throughout our galaxy. The information from the Southern Hemisphere of the Galactic Plane, where a majority of the Milky Way's mass lies, was taken for map completion.

Gravitational waves might have been detected

Details on the detection of the gravitational waves will be publicized on Thursday. Scientists will be organizing a press conference to discuss their observations while looking out for gravitational waves, whose existence for the first time was made by Albert Einstein in his theory of general relativity 100 years ago.
