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.

OSIRIS images of Rosetta's comet show jets of activity
While in the past most of the dust emitted from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko seemed to originate from the neck region, images obtained by Rosetta’s scientific imaging system OSIRIS now show jets of dust along almost the whole extent of the comet.

Organic molecules in Titan’s atmosphere are intriguingly skewed
These misaligned features seem to defy conventional thinking about the saturnian moon’s windy atmosphere, which should quickly smear out such off-axis concentrations.
