Pictures from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft seem to indicate that the dwarf planet was much more active than we thought.
It’s not the full picture, but its a lot more than we knew before.
Spinning black holes are capable of complex quantum information processes encoded in the X-ray photons emitted by the accretion disk.
A dark galaxy that a Sith Lord would enjoy.
Polish astronomers have captured an incredibly rare event from start to finish: a white dwarf going nova.
Now? Not so much.
Reason number #1304 not to colonize Io.
The findings help create a more comprehensive picture of supermassive black hole populations.
Every two minutes, this pulsing star lights up the entire star system.
They actually take one another for a spin.
The findings could reveal the location of the missing matter of our universe.
Death from the heavens.
Researchers working with the Gemini North telescope in Hawaii have made a stunning discovery: they found evidence of water clouds around a brown dwarf. Since its discovery, the brown dwarf known as WISE 0855 has fascinated astronomers. It lies just 7.2 light-years from Earth and it’s the coldest confirmed object outside of our solar system at temperatures ranging between −48 to −13 °C (that’s −55
It’s enthralling, but creepy.
Watch it live here!
They may be more common than we thought.
We may actually get to see a black hole!
Astronomers working with the Hubble telescope have discovered that the Universe is expanding 5-9% faster than expected, and this is intriguing.
It’s a paradigm shift.
Deep radio imaging from researchers working in South Africa have revealed that supermassive black holes in a region of the distant universe are all spinning out radio jets in the same direction. The results show, for the first time, an alignment of the jets of galaxies over a large volume of space. Astronomers believe this is due to primordial mass fluctuations in the
