Manchester astronomers detect helium-3 4000 light years away
Manchester, UK (SPX) May 17, 2016
A team of astronomers from The University of Manchester, together with collaborators from the Centro de Astrobiologia and the Deep Space Network, Spain and the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, have detected a rare gas 4000 light years away from Earth. The discovery, made using the largest antenna of NASA's Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex (70 metres in diameter), could help scientists to understand more about the history of this important element. Helium-3 is a gas that has th ... read more
