Some weeks ago I was sitting with the All About Space team, talking about a new theory that seems to have been rattling around the scientific community for quite a few years: the rumour among astrophysicists is that our universe – and any other universes that surround us – could be inside a gravastar. Eyebrows were raised. How could we actually prove it? What made astrophysicists think that this could be a possibility? What actually is a gravastar? This issue All About Space finds out – turn to page 50 for everything you need to know as we unlock the evidence that's left cosmologists questioning what's at the very edge of the cosmos as we know it.The hunt for another world within our Solar System is still going strong,…

wonders of the atacama desert

(© ESO) Sitting under the arc of the Milky Way is one of the Auxiliary Telescopes that constitutes the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT). This amazing array of dishes has led to some of the most inspiring results from some of the darkest corners of the universe. Not only that, it has contributed heavily to many scientific studies.However, looking at it from the outside reveals some breathtaking views as well. Its location at the Paranal Observatory in the Chilean Atacama Desert presents ideal conditions for night-sky observing due to the vast dry climate (inset image), combined with thin atmosphere. ■…

approach to bennu

(© NASA) NASA’s long-awaited Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer (OSIRISREx) has completed its 2 billion-kilometre (1.2 billion-mile) journey through the Solar System to the asteroid Bennu. After this image was taken on its approach at 80 kilometres (50 miles), OSIRIS-REx executed a manoeuvre that took it into a close orbit around the asteroid in order to investigate what these primordial time-capsules can tell us about our early Solar System. ■…

a cluster of stars, or comets?

(XX© XEXSXOX) This spectacular image produced by both ESO’s Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array (ALMA) in Chile and NASA's Hubble shows the glistening stars in the cluster Westerlund 1 and their comet-like characteristics. In some of the most giant stars in Westerlund 1 there appears to be comet-like ‘tails’ which are created by relentless winds forming thick strands of material being carried outward. ■…
