* An Earth-like atmosphere may not survive Proxima b's orbit
Proxima B -- the nearest known exoplanet to our solar system is probably a dead world despite being in the habitable zone of its host star Proxima Centauri. Any Earth sized world would most likely be unable to hold onto an atmosphere -- leaving its surface exposed to harmful stellar radiation and reducing its potential for habitability.
*New clues in determining the size of a black hole
Astronomers have discovered what could be an easy way to determine the size of a spiral galaxy’s supermassive black hole. They’ve found a direct relationship between the geometry of some types of spiral galaxies and the hidden super massive black hole at their centres.
*Calm seas on Titan could mean smooth landing for future space probes
Astronomers have determined that the lakes and seas on the Saturnian moon Titan have few waves higher than a centimetre. The findings mean the giant moon probably has little wind – the primary driving force for waves on the oceans of Earth.
*Huge storm on Neptune
Astronomers have detected a massive storm as big as the Earth on the distant planet Neptune. This massive 9000 kilometer wide storm system was found in Neptune’s equatorial region – a zone where no bright clouds have ever been seen before.
