Interesting to think that in the future when space flight has become the norm that history will look back on this little capsule as the moment space opened up to the rest of the world instead of a select few governments

Space Station to Be Sunk After 2020

Russia and its partners plan to plunge the International Space Station (ISS) into the ocean at the end of its life cycle after 2020 so as not to leave space junk, the space agency said on Wednesday.

"After it completes its existence, we will be forced to sink the ISS. It cannot be left in orbit, it's too complex, too heavy an object, it can leave behind lots of rubbish," said deputy head of Roskosmos space agency Vitaly Davydov.

"Right now we've agreed with our partners that the station will be used until approximately 2020," he said in comments released on Wednesday.

I think what RJ is saying, why dont we slowly bring her down onto dry land, and sell her for scrap.

or put in in museum and charge door fees.

easy, just drop a rope down, and pull it in. The centrifugal force will be greater closer to the surface. haha.

Molten metal storms rage on orphan planet that lost its star

We just found weather on a lost world. Changes in the brightness of a planet adrift in space could be caused by clouds of molten metal passing in and out of view.

The starless planet, PSO J318.5-22, was discovered in the Pan-STARRS survey in 2013. At about eight times the mass of Jupiter, it’s much more like the giant planets we see orbiting other stars than the small, failed stars called brown dwarfs.

Scientists have discovered an exoplanet still in formation, for the very first time. The hatchling planet is still being steadily forged from dust and gas, around a 2 million year old Sun-like star.

That is unbelievable. Can't get over that landing. Like something out of a sci fi movie. Coolest thing I've seen in a long time.

Black hole witnessed for the first time annihilating star over just weeks

Astronomers have witnessed for the first time a star the size of our Sun being completely ripped apart and destroyed by a supermassive black hole.

The scientists watched the process unfold as the star was grabbed and ripped to pieces, forming a disk of debris around the black hole before disappearing beyond the event horizon.

Stellar remnants not swallowed up by the black hole's feeding frenzy were shot out into space at close to the speed of light by powerful magnetic fields forming plasma jets.

"We've seen material [from giant gas clouds] falling into black hole disks producing jets before, but this is a process that can take millions of years," Dr Gemma Anderson of Curtin University said.

"What we've now witnessed is a much faster event where a star gets eaten and accreted very quickly onto a supermassive black hole over just weeks.

"This is happening so quickly that we can observe the evolution of this process on human time scales."

Scientists Detect Mysterious Radio Signals

Astronomers have detected five more of the mysterious events known as fast radio bursts, one of them a never-seen-before double burst. Double bursts contradict many of the proposed explanations for these events, suggesting the source may be even more exotic than we thought. As co-finder Emily Petroff from Swinburne University tweeted: “We have no idea what's going on, but we know it's definitely something cool.”

This might be of some interest to folks that follow this thread...

Professor Brian Cox Live: Professor Brian Cox, Robin Ince
Physicist and broadcaster, Professor Brian Cox is, to tour the UK and Ireland with a live show in autumn 2016.

The massive tour will find Cox 'freewheeling on the edges of the known cosmos' as he continues to demystify the wonders of the universe after the success of his recent BBC TV documentaries. As part of the show, Cox will be interviewed on stage by Robin Ince with whom he co-presents the Radio 4 series The Infinite Monkey Cage. The pair took a live version of The Infinite Monkey Cage to the US earlier this year and are doing a charity Christmas show combining science, comedy and music next month at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.

Cox, who works on the Atlas experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern in Switzerland, is known for his rapturous yet straightforward accounts of science. He told the Observer earlier this year: “The idea that scientists are some kind of priests that have unique access to knowledge about nature is nonsense – in many ways I see it as the codified application of common sense. It’s like plumbing.”

Professor Brian Cox Live starts on 21st September 2016 at His Majesty’s theatre in Aberdeen and ends with a show at Hammersmith Apollo in London on 2nd December 2016.

Seems to be a lot of first happening quite regularly now, when it's comes to astronomy. A lot of new, far higher powered telescopes coming in the years ahead also. Exciting times.

Baby star blasts jets of water into space

Astronomers have found a nascent star 750 light years from earth that shoots colossal jets of water -- a cosmic fire hose -- out its poles in bullet-like pulses.

In a process that almost defies adjectives and analogies, each jet of water is the equivalent of a hundred million times the water flowing through the Amazon River every second and the speed of the jet is the equivalent of 80 times the muzzle velocity of an AK-47 assault rifle.
