Thank you for choosing to read this paper, it was written specifically to be of aid to you.
Recent astronomy articles appear all over the Internet and in magazines dedicated to the science and the hobby. New photos of space objects result in articles. When space agencies announce missions, people write. Every new discovery and piece of information generates a tremendous amount of discussion. Here are just a few.
Bumpy space dust, of all things, generated many recent astronomy articles. Why is that? Scientists know that hydrogen is the universe’s basic building block. But it takes the bonding of hydrogen to create larger molecules. But a special medium is required in the cold of space. Scientists now realize that bumpy molecules may fit that bill. Nobody thinks of dust being bumpy when they vacuum.
One of Saturn’s moons is called the Death Star. It looks like the Star Wars space station, with a huge crater on one side. In August 2008 it became a subject of many recent astronomy articles when the Cassini spacecraft passed near the moon, Mimas. We gained a lot of compelling data from this mission, including stunning images. It was a popular story. Scientists believe the mission will create new understanding as to the number of crater creating objects that pass near to Saturn. We’ll learn a lot about how planets like Saturn clean debris from the solar system.
It’s long been known that dark matter exists in the universe. It contributes to the expansion of the universe, but scientists don’t really know how. In 2008 a number of the recent astronomy articles were dedicated to the search for and analysis of dark matter. SNAP, the SuperNova/Acceleration Probe, was planned to help solve dark matter by examining many distant supernovae. 70% of the universe’s matter is dark matter so this is important work.
Before our sun was really a star it was a condensing mass of space matter called a protosun. But scientists wondered if this protosun emitted any heat or light or a solar wind enough to effect the formation of life on Earth. Yes it did, says recent astronomy articles. Better technology has shown that the proto-sun did send out solar winds as well as a great deal of heat and light. All of this helped life on Earth form.
For any astronomy enthusiast it’s important to keep up on recent astronomy articles.
Finally, Id like to thank you for reading this article and i hope it was helpful information.

* As we approach the end of Crash Course Astronomy, it’s time now to acknowledge that our Universe’s days are numbered. Stars will die out after a few trillion years, protons will decay and matter will dissolve after a thousand trillion trillion trillion years, black holes will evaporate after 10^92 years, and then all will be dark. But there is still hope that a new Universe will be born from it.
