It has travelled for hundreds of millions of years!!!

The first asteroid observed visiting our Solar System from elsewhere isn't just unusual in its interstellar origin. It's also unlike any other asteroid we've seen before. Astronomers have trained a flurry of telescopes on the object discovered last month, and now we're being rewarded with super-exciting details.

Newly named 'Oumuamua, the asteroid is up to 400 metres (0.25 miles) long, and is distinctly cigar-shaped. It could be up to 10 times as long as it is wide - a shape never before seen in an asteroid.

'Oumuamua (official designation 1I/2017 U1 - the "I" is for "interstellar") was first spotted by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii in late October, and it didn't take long for astrophysicists to figure out that its trajectory and velocity both indicated that it was an extrasolar stranger, perhaps flung out by a neighbouring star.

But there was something odd about it. Preliminary observations suggested it was a comet - but follow-up observations showed none of the characteristics associated with comets, and it was subsequently categorised as an asteroid: the first time a comet's categorisation has changed to asteroid.

But that's not the only unusual thing about 'Oumuamua. Initial calculations showed that the asteroid came from the direction of the star Vega, in the constellation of Lyra.

However, even travelling at an incredible speed of 95,000 kilometres per hour (59,000 miles per hour), it would have taken 300,000 years to reach Earth from Vega - and Vega wasn't in the same place 300,000 years ago.

This suggests that Oumuamua could have been travelling through space, unattached to any star system, for hundreds of millions of years.

"For decades we've theorised that such interstellar objects are out there, and now - for the first time - we have direct evidence they exist," said astrophysicist Thomas Zurbuchen from NASA. "This history-making discovery is opening a new window to study formation of solar systems beyond our own."

When 'Oumuamua was discovered, telescopes around the world set to make observations. Gemini, the ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile, the Canada France Hawaii Telescope, the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope, and other observatories trained their eyes on the asteroid.

Combining images from the various telescopes, an international team found that the asteroid varies in brightness by a factor of about 10 every 7.3 hours, matching its spin about its axis. No other comet or asteroid in the Solar System varies so widely in brightness.

"This unusually big variation in brightness means that the object is highly elongated: about ten times as long as it is wide, with a complex, convoluted shape," said Karen Meech from the Institute for Astronomy in Hawaii.

"We also found that it had a reddish color, similar to objects in the outer Solar System, and confirmed that it is completely inert, without the faintest hint of dust around it."

This implies that the asteroid is made of dense material - rock and possibly metal - and has no water or ice. The redness of the surface was probably caused by cosmic irradiation over the hundreds of millions of years it has been travelling the Milky Way galaxy.

'Oumuamua slingshotted around the Sun on 9 September at a speed of 315,000 kilometres per hour (196,000 miles per hour), and is now travelling out of the Solar System. As of 20 November, its speed was 14,000 kilometres per hour (85,700 miles per hour).

It is due to pass Jupiter's orbit in May 2018, and Saturn's in January 2019. Scientists will continue taking observations until 'Oumuamua is too faint to see.

The research has been published today in the journal Nature.

Dark features previously proposed as evidence for significant liquid water flowing on Mars have now been identified as granular flows, where sand and dust move rather than liquid water.

These new findings indicate that present-day Mars may not have a significant volume of liquid water. The water-restricted conditions that exist on Mars would make it difficult for Earth-like life to exist near the surface of the planet.

Scientists from the USGS, the University of Arizona, Durham University (England) and the Planetary Science Institute analysed narrow, down-slope trending surface features on Mars that are darker than their surroundings, called Recurring Slope Lineae, or RSL. These RSL features grow incrementally, fade when inactive and recur annually during the warmest time of year on Mars. RSL are mostly found on steep rocky slopes in dark regions of Mars, such as the southern mid-latitudes, Valles Marineris near the equator, and in Acidalia Planitia on the northern plains. The appearance and growth of these features resemble seeping liquid water, but how they form remains unclear, and this research demonstrated that the RSL flows seen by HiRISE are likely moving granular material like sand and dust.

“We’ve thought of RSL as possible liquid water flows, but the slopes are more like what we expect for dry sand,” said USGS scientist and lead author Colin Dundas. “This new understanding of RSL supports other evidence that shows that Mars today is very dry.”

The terminal end of the RSL slopes, said Dundas, are identical to the slopes of sand dunes where movement is caused by dry granular flows. Water almost certainly is not responsible for this behaviour, which would require the volume of liquid to correspond to the length of slope available, producing more liquid on longer slopes. Instead, the 151 RSL examined by the study authors all end on similar slopes despite very different lengths. Additionally, said the scientists, water is unlikely to be produced only near the tops of slopes at these angles and if it were, it should be able to flow onto lower slopes.

This new research finds that these RSL features are flows of granular material and thus, align with the long-standing hypothesis that the surface of Mars lacks flowing water. Small amounts of water could still be involved in their initiation in some fashion, as hydrated minerals have been detected at some RSL locations. The authors conclude that liquid on present-day Mars may be limited to traces of dissolved moisture from the atmosphere and thin films of water.

This study was done in cooperation with the NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter project. https://mars.nasa.gov/mro/

Houston Texans running back D’Onta Foreman waves to the crows as he is carted off the field after injuring his ankle on a 34 yard touchdown run during the fourth quarter against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston. The Texans defeated the Cardinals 31-21.

Immediately after crossing the goal line, Foreman went down in a heap with what team officials reported to be an ankle injury. Foreman laid on the field for several minutes surrounded by the team’s athletic trainers before being helped onto a cart and taken off the field.

NASA Detects Solar Flare Pulses at Sun and Earth 、。。

When our Sun erupts with giant explosions - such as bursts of radiation called solar flares - we know they can affect space throughout the solar system as well as near Earth .. But monitoring their effects requires having observatories in many places with many perspectives, much the way weather sensors all over Earth can help us monitor what’s happening with a terrestrial storm 、。。

By using multiple observatories, two recent studies show how solar flares exhibit pulses or oscillations in the amount of energy being sent out .. Such research provides new insights on the origins of these massive solar flares as well as the space weather they produce, which is key information as humans and robotic missions venture out into the solar system, farther and farther from home 、。。

The first study spotted oscillations during a flare - unexpectedly - in measurements of the Sun’s total output of extreme ultraviolet energy, a type of light invisible to human eyes .. On Feb 15, 2011, the Sun emitted an X-class solar flare, the most powerful kind of these intense bursts of radiation .. Because scientists had multiple instruments observing the event, they were able to track oscillations in the flare’s radiation, happening simultaneously in several different sets of observations 、。。
