it's our 100th issue!

In June 2012, the very first issue of All About Space was launched – and I remember it like it was yesterday. At the time I was serving as a staff writer for UK magazine Astronomy Now, but I was immediately intrigued by its energy, vibrant design and how it effortlessly delved into some of the most complex topics in the universe. Flicking through its 100 glossy pages, I just knew I had to get involved. That day came in November 2013 when I joined as a full-time staff writer, and what a ride it has been: from interviewing NASA astronauts to jetting off to Tenerife, Poland and America to get the latest space scoops for our readers, All About Space has – month-by-month – kept you up to date on…

launch pad

A festive feel to Norway The Earth can offer some equally stunning sights by telescope, and this birds-eye view of Tromsø, Norway, is imaged here by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite. This colourful combination shows the mountains of the Scandinavian country with a festive twist, flaunting the white snow that sits on the tips of the mountains and the ‘infrared’ land, which is an indication of its vegetation. Tromsø is a remarkable place to visit as it sits near the Arctic Circle, and when the Sun sets in late November, it doesn’t rise again until January. The story behind our stars There is more to this image of the Milky Way than meets the eye. Captured by the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), the unprecedented detail in…

nasa’s planet hunter uncovers earth-size world in habitable zone

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has discovered a roughly Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of its host star, the zone of orbital distances where liquid water could be stable on a world’s surface. The newfound exoplanet, known as TOI 700 d, lies just 101.5 light years from Earth, making it a good candidate for follow-up observations by other instruments, scientists added. TESS found three different planets circling the star TOI 700 – TOI meaning ‘Tess Object of Interest’ – a red dwarf about 40 per cent as massive, 40 per cent as wide and 50 per cent as hot as Earth’s Sun. The innermost world, TOI 700 b, is roughly Earth-sized and completes one orbit every ten Earth days. The centre planet, TOI 700 c, is 2.6-times bigger than…

james webb telescope on track for march 2021 launch

NASA’s next flagship space telescope is still on track for a launch in March 2021 despite longstanding scheduling concerns, according to agency personnel. The James Webb Space Telescope has been notoriously prone to delays and cost overruns, but during two town hall meetings here at the 235th American Astronomical Society meeting, NASA leaders emphasised that the launch date set in June 2018 still holds. A second major telescope is also continuing to meet its timeline, targeting a launch in the mid-2020s. “This past year was an exciting year for James Webb,” said Paul Hertz, director of the astrophysics division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “This is your next great observatory.” But before it can become NASA’s next great observatory, Webb needs to complete a host of milestones this year. Right now…

cosmic rays are tearing our satellite galaxy apart

Researchers released simulations of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) – a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way – and found that cosmic rays from a starburst event are starting to rip it apart. One of the many by-products of starburst violence is the production of cosmic rays, tiny charged particles accelerated to nearly the speed of light. Cosmic rays constantly zip through the cosmos, leaping over billions of light years to wreak havoc wherever they land. Now much hotter, gas doesn’t seem so interested in staying in the LMC – or, in other words, the gravity of the LMC isn’t strong enough to hold onto its own gas after these rounds of concentrated star formation and supernovae, and so the hot gas tries to leave. Researchers looked at the simulated behaviour of something…
