*Galaxy murder mystery solved Young galaxies can be violently stripped of their youth and turned old by superheated intergalactic plasma contained in large halos of dark matter. The new findings mean the process known as ram-pressure stripping is far more prevalent than previously thought and help to explain the process that appears to be killing off galaxies.

*Could there be life on Pluto? A new study ponders the possibility of life existing on the distant world of Pluto. NASA’s New Horizons mission explored the dwarf planet and its system during an historic flyby in July 2015. Among the myriad of stunning discoveries about this remote and frozen world was evidence of a possible sub surface ocean beneath the heart-shaped region on Pluto known as Sputnik Planitia.

*Work begins on NASA’s Dark Energy Hunter NASA has announced plans for a new scientific instrument to study a mysterious force known as Dark Energy -- which dominates the cosmos and will determine not just the universe’s ultimate fate – but also how soon that happens.
