Planets, stars or something entirely different? We take a look to see what brown dwarfs are
Cold hydrogen could have stopped Milky Way’s star formation
For the first time ionised hydrogen has been detected at the lowest frequency ever towards the centre of our galaxy
Scientists are now replicating exoplanet atmospheres, on Earth
These environments can only be simulated with a assortment of simple molecules enclosed in temperatures
How much hydrogen does a star have?
We find out what that magic amount is to keep a star alive
Astronomers observe the diffuse glow of the Universe
The Lyman-alpha emission from dim clouds of hydrogen in space has offered a new and interesting view of the Universe
Astronomers gather fresh clues about famous star’s everlasting nature
Researchers suggest that Eta Carinae was originally a three-star system, which is what led it to its unusual behaviour
Astronomers finally find the universe’s ‘missing matter’
Ordinary matter, or ‘baryons’, make up all physical objects in existence, from stars to the cores of black holes
Astronomers detect the most distant oxygen ever discovered
This oxygen detection provides strong evidence that star formation occurred just 250 million years after the Big Bang
Astronomers uncover more about the making of baby stars
By studying distant galaxies, astronomers could reveal the large amounts of atomic hydrogen and how it affects star formation
Mercury’s poles likely to hold more ice than previously thought
Research over the past three decades has suggested that water is frozen on the first rock from the Sun
Dark matter likely to be cold rather than ‘fuzzy’, suggests new study
An international team of cosmologists have used data from the intergalactic medium – the vast, largely empty space between galaxies – to narrow down what dark matter could be
Astronomers find ‘impossible’ frozen cloud on Titan
The puzzling appearance of an ice cloud on Saturn’s largest moon could possibly be similar to one seen over Earth’s poles
Astronomers detect oxygen in “most distant galaxy” yet
Quantifying the gas is key to understanding how matter cycles in and out of galaxies
Ice patches suggest Moon may have spun differently
The same face of the Moon has not always pointed towards the Earth
How do we image the Eagle nebula?
Visible light, infrared radiation and X-rays come together to reveal the beautiful inner workings of the Eagle nebula
What lies at the heart of the giant Perseus cluster?
We delve into the centre of this gathering of galaxies
What’s the Vela supernova remnant hiding?
We zoomed into this fascinating structure and took a look
Why does Jupiter have such a strong magnetic field?
Could Jupiter’s size explain its monstrous magnetic field? We take a look…
