Where would an Astronomers work?

It s tough to answer what an astronomer does every day since different days we do different things. We typically divide our time between 5 or 6 different things: Working in our offices, traveling, teaching, reading, writing, or observing at telescopes. Astronomers who focus on theoretical astronomy, though, aren t typically involved in observing. Working in our…

What is a Space Scientist?

The study of the Sun is becoming an increasingly important ‘mirror’ in which to reflect our analysis of Earth’s changing climate. The Sun’s light helps to maintain our world’s temperature, but it also produces a magnetic field that shields our world from deadly cosmic rays coming from the far depths of space. Its influence on our everyday lives cannot be overstated…

Here s some cosmically bad news: The universe is dying. An international team of scientists that used seven powerful telescopes around the world to capture light coming from more than 200, galaxies has found that they’re putting out half of the light that they did just 2 billion years ago – and they’re continuing to fade. The findings, presented at the General…

Living matter, at the molecular scale, is different from usual matter. Biological macromolecules deform without breaking, couple reactions to motion, perform tasks. Stretching a point, we may say that at the molecular scale, life is the coupling of chemical reactions to conformational motion. We are interested in the essence of life (Indiana-Jones fashion), thus…
