New HiRISE Images Show 3D Structure of Martian Ice Sheets

Added: 12.01.2018 13:57 | 0 views | 0 comments

New images from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveal never-before-observed details about Martian ice sheets, including that some begin just a few feet below Mars’ surface and extend to depths greater than 300 feet (100 m). The findings are published in the journal Science. “There is ice [...]

Hubble Finds Three Giant Exoplanets and Several Brown Dwarfs in Orion Nebula

Added: 12.01.2018 12:34 | 0 views | 0 comments

Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to peer deep into the famous Orion Nebula, Space Telescope Institute researcher Massimo Robberto and colleagues searched for small, faint bodies. They found 17 very-low-mass brown dwarf companions to red dwarf stars, one brown dwarf pair, and one brown dwarf with a planetary companion. The astronomers also found three giant [...]
