June 18, 2015 — Astronomers have measured the mass of the supermassive black hole at the center of NGC 1097 -- a barred spiral galaxy located approximately 45 million light-years away in the direction of the ... read more

June 17, 2015 — Radio observations give new evidence for long-sought supermassive black hole in small satellite galaxy orbiting the Andromeda ... read more

June 17, 2015 — Astronomers have discovered the brightest galaxy yet found in the early Universe and found strong evidence that first generation of stars lurk within it. These previously theoretical objects were the ... read more

June 17, 2015 — Using the advanced adaptive optics system GeMS, on the Gemini South telescope, astronomers have imaged a beautiful stellar jewel-box -- a tightly packed cluster of stars that is one of the few places ... read more

June 11, 2015 — NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected a stratosphere, one of the primary layers of Earth's atmosphere, on a massive and blazing-hot exoplanet known as ... read more

June 10, 2015 — Although the Universe may seem spacious most galaxies are clumped together in groups or clusters and a neighbor is never far away. But this galaxy, known as NGC 6503, has found itself in a lonely ... read more

June 10, 2015 — Some of the sharpest images ever made with ESO's Very Large Telescope have, for the first time, revealed what appears to be an ageing star giving birth to a butterfly-like planetary nebula. ... read more

Exoplanets: Atmospheric Signs of Volcanic Activity Could Aid Search for Life

June 8, 2015 — Planets with volcanic activity are considered better candidates for life than worlds without such heated internal goings-on. Researchers have found a way to detect volcanic activity in the ... read more

June 8, 2015 — ALMA's Long Baseline Campaign has produced a spectacularly detailed image of a distant galaxy being gravitationally lensed. The image shows a magnified view of the galaxy's star-forming ... read more

June 4, 2015 — Astronomers usually discover supernovae within large galaxies, where a star explodes perhaps once a century. Now a team of astronomers has used the sharp imaging capability of the Hubble Space ... read more

June 3, 2015 — If you lived on one of Pluto's moons Nix or Hydra, you'd have a hard time setting your alarm clock. That's because you could not know for sure when, or even in which direction, the sun ... read more

June 2, 2015 — A close-up of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko by NASA's ultraviolet instrument surprised scientists by revealing that electrons close to the comet's surface -- not photons from the sun as ... read more

June 1, 2015 — Viewed from above, our solar system's planetary orbits around the sun resemble rings around a bulls-eye. Each planet, including Earth, keeps to a roughly circular path, always maintaining the ... read more

June 1, 2015 — Astronomers have creatively used a radio telescope to see in 3-D, allowing them to detect the existence of tubular plasma structures in the inner layers of the magnetosphere surrounding the ... read more

May 29, 2015 — Super-sharp observations with the telescope Alma have revealed what seems to be a gigantic flare on the surface of Mira, one of the closest and most famous red giant stars in the sky. Activity like ... read more

May 28, 2015 — In the most extensive survey of its kind ever conducted, a team of scientists have found an unambiguous link between the presence of supermassive black holes that power high-speed, ... read more

May 27, 2015 — Astronomers have discovered for the first time a rear-end collision between two high-speed knots of ejected matter from a supermassive black hole. This discovery was made while piecing together a ... read more

May 27, 2015 — In the brightest region of this glowing nebula called RCW 34, gas is heated dramatically by young stars and expands through the surrounding cooler gas. Once the heated hydrogen reaches the borders of ... read more

May 27, 2015 — Astronomers have identified a young planetary system which may aid in understanding how our own solar system formed and developed billions of years ... read more

Monitoring Magnetospheres: Debunking Theory Behind Massive Stars

May 26, 2015 — Students researching magnetic, massive stars, have uncovered questions concerning the behavior of plasma within their ... read more
