Description A satellite that will be the first to comprehensively monitor wind around the globe is finally ready to fly. After nearly two decades in the planning, the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) Aeolus mission is slated to launch from Kourou, French Guiana, on 21 August. Meteorologists think that its data will significantly improve weather forecasts, because the lack of detailed wind measurements is one of the biggest gaps in the global Earth-observing system1. Aeolus, a €480-million (US$550-million) mission, will use ultraviolet lasers to track wind speed and direction in the lowermost 30 kilometres of the atmosphere2. Researchers have used similar lasers on aeroplanes to study winds in particular regions, but this will be the first wind-mapping mission to cover the entire globe. If Aeolus works as planned, its data could improve forecasts in tropical regions substantially, and by a few per cent in Earth’s mid- and high latitudes. “You may think that does not sound like very much, but if we improve forecasts by 2%, the value for society is many billions of dollars,” says Lars Isaksen, a meteorologist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in Reading, UK. Better forecasts allow people to better prepare for storms, for example. Until now, meteorologists have pieced together information on winds from a patchwork of sources, including weather balloons and aeroplane flights. No satellite has directly measured winds, although scientists can infer wind speed and direction from satellite measurements of, for instance, how clouds move.

Description I honestly almost can't believe this is real and it makes me feel so infinitely small. Look at this. Just look at it. Take your time with it. This image of the cosmos comes courtesy of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, using ultraviolet vision to capture one of the most expansive images of galaxies yet. Combining ultraviolet light with infrared and visible-light data from the Space Telescope has allowed astronomers to build this incredible map of the universe's evolutionary history. NASA calls it, "one of the largest panoramic views of the fire and fury of star birth in the distant universe." Because light from distant galaxies takes so long to reach us, we are able to see through time. This image lets astronomers look back and track stars being born over the last 11 billion years and features some 15,000 galaxies -- and stars are forming in about 80 percent of them. This isn't the first time Hubble has provided us with a look back in time either, with the Hubble Ultra Violet Ultra Deep Field's release in 2014. The image above shows an area 14 times larger than its 2014 counterpart. Space, hey.

Description A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.... But this isn't science fiction: Astronomers down here on Earth identified some of the oldest galaxies in the universe, a new study says. At 13 billion years old, the galaxies began to form "only" about 100 million years after the Big Bang. The galaxies are actually nearby, in orbit around our own Milky Way galaxy. Study co-author Carlos Frenk of Durham University said, "Finding some of the very first galaxies that formed in our universe orbiting in the Milky Way's own backyard is the astronomical equivalent of finding the remains of the first humans that inhabited the Earth. It is hugely exciting." Here's how it all went down: When the universe was about 380,000 years old, the first hydrogen atoms formed. These atoms collected into clouds and began to gradually cool and settle into small clumps of dark matter, the study says.
