Methanol MultiBeam Survey The Methanol MultiBeam Survey is a sensitive survey of massive young stars in the Milky Way Galaxy to detect methanol masers. The survey is carried out by scanning the telescope in galactic longitude. Spectra cover a 4-MHz band, corresponding to a velocity range of 180 km/s, with 2048 channels each separated by 0.09 km/s. Regions towards the galactic centre are scanned more than once with different velocity settings, so that all likely radial velocities are searched. A second frequency band centred on the 6035-MHz line of hydroxyl (OH) is observed in parallel with the methanol band.

NASA's newest Mars mission spacecraft enters orbit around the Red Planet
MAVEN will study the martian atmosphere to improve scientists' understanding of its history, how the climate has changed over time, and how that has influenced the evolution of the surface and the potential habitability of the planet.

Pulse of a dead star powers intense gamma rays
While pulsars are often behind these gamma rays in our galaxy, other sources can be as well, including the outer shells of the supernova remnants, X-ray binary stars, and star-formation regions.
