Violent helium reaction on white dwarf surface triggers supernova explosion
5-October-2017

An international research team has used the Hyper Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii to find a Type Ia supernova not long after its explosion. They are the first to find solid evidence about what triggered the star to explode, which will contribute to a further understanding of supernova history and behavior.

UV-irradiated amorphous ice behaves like liquid at low temperatures
29-September-2017

Ice analogs mimicking interstellar ice behave like liquids at temperatures between –210°C and –120°C according to Hokkaido University researchers. This liquid-like ice may enhance the formation of organic compounds including prebiotic molecules and the accretion of dust to form planets.
