High Resolution Far-Infrared All-Sky Image Data Released
New observation data from infrared astronomical satellite AKARI have become available for world-wide researchers.

The AKARI Far-Infrared All-Sky image data are completed and released to the researchers across the world. The new AKARI image maps have four to five times better resolution than that of conventional far-infrared all-sky images, as well as data at longer wavelengths. The AKARI image data are expected to contribute to a very wide variety of astronomical studies, for instance in areas of star and planet formation and galaxy evolution.

Lunar Dynamo Found Through Magnetic Fields and Traces of Polar Wander

To understand how the planets and satellites such as the Earth and the moon are formed and evolved, the observation of the magnetic field is very fundamental and essential.In this paper, I will introduce our findings about the magnet field of the moon, obtained from the observations by the Lunar Magnetometer (LMAG), which is installed aboard the lunar orbiter "KAGUYA (SELENE)".
