Apr. 10, 2017 — Using a giant galaxy cluster as a cosmic-scale lens, astronomers have discovered a galaxy from the early universe that they think is 'typical' of its time. This could help astronomers ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — A composite image of Uranus by Voyager 2 and two different observations made by Hubble shows one for the ring and one for the auroras found around the ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — Pre-supernova stars may show signs of instability for months before the big explosion, spewing material into space and creating a dense gas shell around themselves, report scientists in a new ... read more

Apr. 7, 2017 — Stellar explosions are most often associated with supernovae, the spectacular deaths of stars. But new observations provide insights into explosions at the other end of the stellar life cycle, star ... read more

Apr. 6, 2017 — Astronomers have detected an atmosphere on another Earth-like planet. This marks the first detection of an atmosphere around an Earth-like planet other than Earth itself, and thus is a significant ... read more

Apr. 6, 2017 — On April 3, 2017, as Jupiter made its nearest approach to Earth in a year, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope viewed the solar system's largest planet in all of its up-close ... read more

Doubly Accelerated Electrons Detected in Collisions of Galaxy Clusters

Apr. 4, 2017 — A cosmic phenomenon resulting from the acceleration of a gas cloud by a black hole and its reacceleration by the shock waves from the merging of two galaxy clusters has been described by an ... read more

Apr. 4, 2017 — A major discovery has been made on the formation of icy bodies within the Kuiper Belt, unlocking unique evidence that Neptune's movement during early planet formation was a 'smooth and ... read more

Mar. 30, 2017 — A mysterious flash of X-rays has been discovered by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory in the deepest X-ray image ever obtained. This source likely comes from some sort of destructive event, but ... read more

Mar. 30, 2017 — Astronomers have used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to observe the remnant of a supernova explosion in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Beyond just delivering a beautiful image, Hubble may well have ... read more

Mar. 30, 2017 — Three stars have been discovered that now hold the record as the youngest-known examples of a super-fast star ... read more

Mar. 29, 2017 — The Suprime-Cam on the Subaru Telescope has been used to create the most-extensive map of neutral hydrogen gas in the early universe. This cloud appears widely spread out across 160 million ... read more

Mar. 28, 2017 — Recent images have revealed the emergence of small-scale magnetic fields in the lower reaches of the corona researchers say may be linked to the onset of a main ... read more

Mar. 27, 2017 — Astronomers have used a radio telescope in outback Western Australia to see the halo of a nearby starburst galaxy in unprecedented ... read more

Mar. 27, 2017 — Observations using ESO's Very Large Telescope have revealed stars forming within powerful outflows of material blasted out from supermassive black holes at the cores of galaxies. These are the ... read more

Mar. 24, 2017 — Astronomers have identified a record breaking brown dwarf (a star too small for nuclear fusion) with the 'purest' composition and the highest mass yet known. The object, known as SDSS ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Astronomers have uncovered a supermassive black hole that has been propelled out of the center of the distant galaxy 3C 186. The black hole was most likely ejected by the power of gravitational ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Pushing the limits of the largest single-aperture millimeter telescope in the world, and coupling it with gravitational lensing, astronomers report that they have detected a surprising rate of star ... read more

Mar. 22, 2017 — A molecule found in car engine exhaust fumes that is thought to have contributed to the origin of life on Earth has made astronomers heavily underestimate the amount of stars that were forming in the ... read more

Mar. 22, 2017 — Astronomers have developed a way to detect the ultraviolet background of the universe, which could help explain why there are so few small galaxies in the ... read more
