Bright galaxies help solve mystery about early universe

They were much brighter than they were supposed to be.

The universe is expanding faster than current physics predicts

Which means we might need new physics to explain the observation.

Hubble captured the first evidence of a Great Dark Spot storm forming on Neptune

The data taught us a lot about how weather works on gas giants.

Jupiter formed far from the sun and traveled closer during its early days

It also met a lot of asteroids it still hangs around with.

Scientists discover 83 Quasars from the early universe

Talk about a massive find!

NASA captures images of supersonic shockwaves in mid-air — and the results are stunning

Understanding these shockwaves are important for developing the new generation of supersonic planes.

Quasar measurements suggest the universe is expanding faster than we thought

We might need some new physics to explain how this is possible.

Researchers find black hole that spins almost as fast as (we think) they can spin

Hope it won’t get dizzy and stumble our way!

Saturn’s rings are raining down — in about 100 million years, they’ll be gone

If you like it then you should have kept the rings on it.

Building blocks of life can spontaneously form in outer space

Biology — it may literally be out of this world.

Helium exoplanet inflates like a balloon

Helium was predicted to be one of the most common elements of exoplanets, but was only recently observed for the first time.

Supermassive black holes like to wear gas donuts — and we found out why

In all honesty, I’d wear a donut if I could get away with it, too.

Check this out: mind blowing Virtual Reality simulation of the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole

It’s simply mesmerizing.

The Universe is expanding — gravitational waves could show us how fast

A massive breakthrough in astrophysics might enable us to finally determine the rate at which the universe expands.

Planetary rings are surprisingly chemically-rich, paper reports

The findings raise some interesting questions about these beautiful structures.

If we want to find the “missing” dark matter, we have to look beyongblack holes

Dark matter makes up most of the universe — and we still don’t really know what it is.

It Is Possible Jupiter Could Support Life, Scientists Say

The chances of it happening are pretty slim though.

Unique swirl patterns point to the Moon’s magnetic past

Nice swirls!

Jupiter’s magnetic field is extremely bizarre, potentially due to unknown processes in its core

We have no idea why this happens — but we do have hypotheses.

Ancient galaxies found in our cosmic neighborhood

The galaxies date from the so-called cosmic Dark Ages.
