Stars are a fundamental part to our universe, but what purpose do they serve?
50 galaxies within our cosmic backyard have been studied extensively in visible and ultraviolet images
When dealing with large planets and small stars it can sometimes be hard to differentiate the two. Thankfully, brown dwarf stars might just be the divider we need.
This oxygen detection provides strong evidence that star formation occurred just 250 million years after the Big Bang
Is our Milky Way destined to collide with any other galaxies?
The very first particles of light came from somewhere. We find out where
We find out the answer to this intriguing question
This new theory challenges our current understanding of the universe and the initial Big Bang
The physics pioneer best known in the space industry for his famous Fermi paradox
17 years after the initial supernova, astronomers have photographed its companion star for the first time ever
Analysis of the ‘butterfly’ galaxy NGC 6240 shows black hole ejections and stellar winds stop the birth of new stars
Here’s what it’s like to visit one of the strangest places in the universe
The results of a collaboration between French astronomers and applied combustion experts have been presented at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS)
Radio images made with a combination of telescopes in space and on the ground resolve the outburst merely a couple of 12 light-days from its launching site
This massive blue star existed just 4.4 billion years after the Big Bang
When observing galaxies very similar to the Milky Way, researchers have deduced that they are slowly expanding in size
One supernova explosion is enough to pack a punch, but can two go off at the same time?
There’s plenty of it, so what shape do we think the universe is?
Rubin became the first person to provide evidence for the existence of dark matter
We take a look at what causes these stars to speed across the universe
