June 22, 2015 — Astronomers have discovered 854 "ultra-dark galaxies" in the Coma Cluster. The new discovery surpasses the 2014 discovery of 47 mysterious dark galaxies by more than 800 and suggests that ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Astronomers have successfully commissioned a new type of optic that can reveal the image of an exoplanet next to its parent star. The 'vector Apodizing Phase Plate' (vector-APP) coronagraph ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Astronomers have determined the mass of a tiny binary star thanks to its intense radio emissions – rare in such small stars – which compels scientists to review stellar evolution ... read more

June 20, 2015 — Saturn's moon Titan is home to seas and lakes filled with liquid hydrocarbons, but what forms the depressions on the surface? A new study suggests the moon's surface dissolves in a process ... read more

June 19, 2015 — Colliding lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider creates tiny samples of matter at energy densities that have not occurred since microseconds after the Big Bang. At these densities, ordinary matter ... read more

June 19, 2015 — The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is scheduled to launch its Eu:CROPIS research satellite into orbit in early 2017. Its purpose is to test a biological life-support system for future human space ... read more

June 18, 2015 — Using the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared vision, astronomers have unveiled some of the previously hidden origins of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe. A new study finds that ... read more

June 18, 2015 — Researchers combing through the data from the Venus Express mission have found new evidence of active lava flows on Earth's nearest ... read more

June 18, 2015 — Magnetic field structure of nearby galaxy provides new insights on how spiral arms form, and how gas can be funneled inward to fuel star formation at the galaxy's ... read more

June 18, 2015 — A new image shows a gathering of four cosmic companions. This quartet forms part of a group of galaxies known as the Hickson Compact Group 16, or HCG 16 -- a galaxy group bursting with dramatic star ... read more
