At http://phys.org/print395475386.html … giant rings around an exoplanet.

At http://phys.org/print395479480.html … a team of astrophysicists at the University of Portsmouth have created a map of voids and super clusters in the universe – which is said to solve a mystery. The map can be used to measure the effect of dark energy 'stretching' the universe. This is said to confirm Einstein's theory of gravity we are told.

At http://phys.org/print395553054.html … the building blocks of life have building blocks of their own. They come from star light. Ultra violet light from stars play a big role in creating life's molencules. On earth the sun if the defining force of most the life on earth – but star light drives the formation of chemicals that are precursors to chemicals that are required to make life.

At http://phys.org/print395558296.html … astronomers in Switzerland have studied a prototype of a supergiant fast x-ray transient (observed by ESA in 2003).

At http://phys.org/print395512156.html … the moon is bombarded by so much space rock that its surface gets a facelift every 81,000 years (completely). The earth is also constantly pelted by dust, meteors, and space rocks but apparently the dense atmosphere saves the day. More than 100 tons of dust and sand sized particles rain down on the planet every day.

Finally, at http://phys.org/print395491786.html … scientists have been having a look at Phobos, the moon of Mars made famous by Velikovsky. It has an enormous crater on its nose (like a burst boil). However, the crater is surrounded by hundreds of parallel grooves radiating outwards from the crater and modelling is unable to explain their existence or origin.
