With the help of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have managed to create the most precise map of a distant galaxy cluster.
Astronomers may have come up dry when it comes to searching for water on other planets.
Satellite galaxies move in rotating discs around larger ones. Yet these galaxies aren't predicted by current models, leaving astronomers baffled.
Titan, Saturn's largest moon, has intrigued astronomers for years. Now, one scientist has used newly gathered data to confirm a model of Titan's atmosphere, revealing a bit more about this distant world.
There may be a new method to search for advanced alien life. Scientists have found that they could potentially spot the fingerprints of certain pollutants under ideal conditions on other planets.
ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile has captured a spectacular new image of a beautiful star cluster called NGC 3293. The new picture reveals a bit more about the lives and deaths of sibling stars in the constellation of Carina.
NASA's Fermi has spotted an unusual event. It watched as in late June 2013, a binary system containing a rapidly spinning neutron star underwent a startling change.
The NASA Hubble Space Telescope has probed the extreme outskirts of a stunning elliptical galaxy. The new findings reveal new details about the most remote portion of an elliptical galaxy ever to have been explored.
Astronomers have made a new discovery when it comes to a transiting exoplanet. They've found that the planet as the longest known year seen to date.
Astronomers are learning more about our universe each day. Now, they've taken a closer look at dwarf galaxies and have found that they don't "swarm" around larger ones like bees, but actually "dance" in orderly, disc-shaped orbits.
Earth can't be the only planet to host life in our universe. Now, scientists have found that oceans may actually be vital for supporting alien life.
Astronomers are taking a closer look at the pitted, battered surface of the moon and found that some lunar pits could potentially shelter astronauts. The findings could help support human activity on the lunar surface.
