We all know bubbles from soapy baths or sodas. These bubbles of everyday experience on Earth are only a few inches across, and consist of a thin film of liquid enclosing a small volume of air or other gas. In space, however, there are very different bubbles – composed of a lighter gas inside a heavier one – and they can be huge. nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra

A new study using data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA's XMM-Newton suggests that dark energy may have varied over cosmic time. nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra

The Abell 2597 galaxy cluster shows the first clear evidence for the simultaneous inward and outward flow of gas being driven by a supermassive black hole. nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra

Astronomers have detected a bright X-ray outburst from a star in the Small Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy almost 200,000 light years from Earth. A combination of X-ray and optical data indicate that the source of this radiation is a white dwarf star that may be the fastest-growing white dwarf ever observed. nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra
