Scientists may have discovered the most luminous galaxy in the universe.
Astronomers have spent years trying to determine the strange behavior of an aging star nicknamed "Nasty 1," residing in our Milky Way galaxy.
Could there be life on other worlds? Scientists believe that distant moons far beyond our galaxy hold the answer.
Scientists may have discovered how white dwarfs turn into Type Ia supernovae.
Technology is improving every day and now, scientists are using it on the lunar surface. A rugged camera technology successfully captured 360 degree panoramic views of the moon.
For the first time ever, astronomers have captured images of fledgling white dwarf stars beginning their migration from the crowded center of an ancient star cluster to the less populated "suburbs."
For years, people have imagined the possibility of life on Mars. Now, though, researchers have taken a closer look at what techniques need to be used in order to find the possibility of life on the Red Planet.
The mysterious bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres may soon be explained. NASA's Dawn spacecraft have taken the best resolved images of the planet, taking from a distance of only 8,400 miles away.
Sun-like "superflare" stars were first seen with the Kepler Space Telescope. Now, astronomers have taken a closer look at these stars and have discovered that stars with large starspots can, indeed, experience superflares.
The dark material coating parts of Jupiter's moon, Europa, may actually be sea salt. Scientists believe that these dark features could be evidence of a subsurface ocean.
With the help of ESO's Very Large Telescope, scientists have discovered a new class of "dark" globular clusters around the giant galaxy Centaurus A.
Astronomers may have a weather forecast for a planet far beyond our solar system. Using sensitive observations from the Kepler space telescope, scientists have uncovered daily weather cycles on six extra-solar planets.
