We've all heard about the search for life on other planets, but what about looking on other moons? In a paper published Wednesday (June 13) in The Astrophysical Journal, researchers at the University of California, Riverside and the University of Southern Queensland have identified more than 100 giant planetsthat potentially host moons capable of supporting life. Their work will guide the design of future telescopes that can detect these potential moons and look for tell-tale signs of life, called biosignatures, in their atmospheres.

Since the 2009 launch of NASA's Kepler telescope, scientists have identified thousands of planets outside our solar system, which are called exoplanets. A primary goal of the Kepler mission is to identify planets that are in the habitable zones of their stars, meaning it's neither too hot nor too cold for liquid water—and potentially life—to exist.

Terrestrial (rocky) planets are prime targets in the quest to find life because some of them might be geologically and atmospherically similar to Earth. Another place to look is the many gas giants identified during the Kepler mission. While not a candidate for life themselves, Jupiter-like planets in the habitable zone may harbor rocky moons, called exomoons, that could sustain life.

"There are currently 175 known moons orbiting the eight planets in our solar system. While most of these moons orbit Saturn and Jupiter, which are outside the Sun's habitable zone, that may not be the case in other solar systems," said Stephen Kane, an associate professor of planetary astrophysics and a member of the UCR's Alternative Earths Astrobiology Center. "Including rocky exomoons in our search for life in space will greatly expand the places we can look."

The researchers identified 121 giant planets that have orbits within the habitable zones of their stars. At more than three times the radii of the Earth, these gaseous planets are less common than terrestrial planets, but each is expected to host several large moons.

Scientists have speculated that exomoons might provide a favorable environment for life, perhaps even better than Earth. That's because they receive energy not only from their star, but also from radiation reflected from their planet. Until now, no exomoons have been confirmed.

"Now that we have created a database of the known giant planets in the habitable zone of their star, observations of the best candidates for hosting potential exomoons will be made to help refine the expected exomoon properties. Our follow-up studies will help inform future telescope design so that we can detect these moons, study their properties, and look for signs of life," said Michelle Hill, an undergraduate student at the University of Southern Queensland who is working with Kane and will join UCR's graduate program in the fall.

President Donald #Trump has followed up a fractious weekend summit with major US allies by repeatedly accusing them of unfair treatment over trade. Trump told French President #EmmanuelMacron during a recent meeting in Washington that there are too many German cars in the #UnitedStates. He's also raised the issue with German Chancellor #AngelaMerkel in the past, and threatened to tax German car imports at 35%.

Economists say Trump is missing two key points: German automakers have opened big factories in the United States, dramatically reducing their need to import cars. Plus, targeting German carmakers would hurt American workers and the US economy. German automakers sold 1.35 million vehicles in the United States in 2017, about 8% of total US car sales. Of those, only 494,000 were exported from #Germany to the US.

Fitzroy Falls, Morton NP, SE Australia
Face-on view of the first plunge of this waterfall in moderate flow, taken from the West Rim trek. The sandstone walls behind the fall take on many hues during a day, depending on humidity and sun position.
Image: A panorama of many images, slightly toned for structure. Panoramas of waterfalls (particularly large falls) can suffer discontinuities in waterflow. Minimize with higher speeds and minimum lateral movement - but check carefully the stitching of the final result :)

Crocus Views
This is the first of a series of Crocus images that I’ll be posting over the course of the next few days. The idea is to illustrate some of the results you can get with just a few simple manipulations of an otherwise straightforward image. The first image is a unmanipulated shot of a Crocus flower on a lightbox. I used levels and vibrance adjustment layers in Photoshop as well as some sharpening; otherwise, the image was pretty much as you see it. In the second image, I’ve applied a luminosity inversion to the first image. A luminosity inversion changes the brightness of each pixel relative to its distance from middle grey. Thus, if a pixel is very close to middle grey, you’ll see very little difference in its brightness. But the further a pixel strays from middle grey, the further its inversion will place it on the other side of mid grey. Thus, light grey becomes dark grey (and vice versa), white becomes black , etc.

There are multiple ways to achieve a luminosity inversion in Photoshop, but one simple way is to first invert the whole image (Cmd/Ctrl I) and then reinvert the hue only (use a Saturation/Hue adjustment layer and push the Hue slider all the way to either the left or right extreme). Inverting the image has the effect of inverting both Hue and Luminosity. Inverting the Hue returns it to normal while leaving the luminosity in its inverted state. My subsequent posts will show the results of a few in-camera effects and how these appear in both the normal and inverted luminosity modes.
