May 15 2015 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com.

Mary Somerville and the World of Science book review
Mary Somerville was an exceptional individual. Although self-educated and - as a woman - barred from membership in scientific societies, her books sold well and were used as textbooks for many decades. Allan Chapman relates her achievements to the context of 19th century science in Britain.

*New Horizons and Dawn carry on*
(1) New Horizons has finally come close enough to Pluto to image the tiniest moons, Kerebros and Styx. This makes the known Plutonian family complete. The New Horizons team is now on the lookout for any satellites that haven't previously been discovered. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/250090585534534456/
(2) Dawn has closer pictures of the bright spots on Ceres, and it turns out that they are made up of further spots. It may well be that these are areas with highly reflective surface material. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/250090585534524863/
