( Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ) Our Sun is a relatively quiet star that only occasionally releases solar flares or blasts of energetic particles. You might think that smaller, cooler stars would be even more sedate. However, astronomers have now identified a tiny star with a monstrous temper. It shows evidence of much stronger flares than anything our Sun produces. If similar ...

( Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ) The collection of rocky planets orbiting distant stars has just grown by one, and the latest discovery is the most intriguing one to date. The newfound world, although hot as an oven, is cool enough to potentially host an atmosphere. If it does, it's close enough (only 39 light-years away) that we could study that atmosphere in detail with the ...

A little star in deep space is making our sun look weak. The relatively cool, small star called TVLM 513-46546, appears to shoot off such extreme flares that they outdo than the space weather our sun shoots out into the solar system, according to scientists at the Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

( Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ) In many ways stars are like living beings. They're born; they live; they die. And they even have a heartbeat. Using a novel technique, astronomers have detected thousands of stellar 'pulses' in the galaxy Messier 87 (M87). Their measurements offer a new way of determining a galaxy's age.

The only San Jose band to share a lead singer with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics is returning to its home turf this weekend. The Chocolate Watchband initially came to life 50 years ago at Foothill College, but the legendary '60s psychedelic garage-rock specialists played so many shows in San Jose that the city became their hometown. It stuck to them.
