Gas giant beta Pictoris b has been heavily studied since 2009, but now its identical twin has been spotted orbiting two brown dwarf stars
Do all moons have to be solid? Let’s find out.
Using the power and synergy of two space telescopes, astronomers have made the most precise measurement to date of the universe’s expansion rate.
For the first time ever, high-energy cosmic neutrinos have been detected coming from an energetic galaxy known as a blazar
Signals from rare black hole-neutron star pairs could pinpoint rate at which universe is growing
This quasar could tell astronomers a lot about the state of the early universe and the first-ever galaxies
What happens when an unstoppable force meets another unstoppable force…
Find out why stars come in different colours
This result is ten-times more precise than the previous best test of gravity, making the evidence for Einstein’s Strong Equivalence Principle that much stronger
Astronomers propose that between eight and 10 billion years ago, a dwarf galaxy collided with the Milky Way and completely reshaped the galaxy
The X-ray emission detected from Eta Carinae shows highly energetic cosmic rays ejecting from the massive stars
This young planet is shaping its host primordial disk and its atmosphere appears to be cloudy
