  • New method estimates magnetic field of an exoplanet

    Scientists have developed a new method that can estimate the magnetic field of a distant exoplanet An exoplanet is a planet, which is located outside the solar system and orbits a different star. Kristina Kislyakova of the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Graz and an international group of physicists for the first time ever have estimated the value of the magnetic moment and the shape of the magnetosphere of the exoplanet HD 209458b. Planet HD 209458b (Osiris) is a hot Jupiter, approximately one third larger and lighter than Jupiter. It is a hot gaseous giant orbiting very close to the host star HD 209458. Scientists used the observations of the Hubble Space Telescope of the HD 209458b in the hydrogen Lyman-alpha line at the time of transit, when the planet crosses the stellar disc as seen from the Earth.

  • Protests across US as troops deployed in Ferguson

    Protest marches have sprang up across the United States, and police battled to stifle another night of unrest in Ferguson, ground zero of America's latest racially-charged riots. Violence erupted in the St Louis, Missouri suburb for a second night, after Monday's decision by a grand jury not to prosecute a white police officer for shooting dead an unarmed black teenager in August. Windows were smashed at city hall, a police car was set on fire and protesters pelted police with rocks, bottles, chunks of concrete and a Molotov cocktail, St Louis County police said. Demonstrators also threw bottles appearing to contain urine. He said 44 arrests were made, but that in general the night was calmer than Monday, when the town saw rampaging looters, much gunfire from rioters and at least 12 buildings set on fire. This time police only used tear gas once, Belmar said.
