Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation

08 July 2015

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation Astronomers from NBI have observed a super-bright supernova association with a very unusual long lasting gamma-ray burst. Gamma-ray bursts are in rare cases observed in connection with supernovae, which are the

Mars has belts of glaciers consisting of frozen water

07 April 2015

Mars has belts of glaciers consisting of frozen water Mars has distinct polar ice caps, but Mars also has belts of glaciers at its central latitudes in both the southern and northern hemispheres. A thick layer of dust covers the glaciers, so they appear as surface of the ground, but radar
