NASA scientists have remastered our view of Europa. They've used a mosaic of color images from NASA's Galileo spacecraft and have used modern image processing techniques in order to create a better image of this icy world.
Asteroids and meteorites can slam into planets, generating immense heat and pressures. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these impacts and found that they may actually create a form of diamond called lonsdaleite.
Astronomers are getting a closer look at the gas cloud G2 in a galactic center that was originally discovered in 2011.
How do galaxies form and how do they evolve? How are they impacted by their surrounding environment? These are both good questions and now, astronomers have taken a closer look at the "cosmic web" of our universe in order to propose some answers.
The sun may actually be influencing lightning strikes on Earth. How? The sun is temporarily "bending" Earth's magnetic field and allowing a shower of energetic particles to enter the upper atmosphere.
New observations of globular clusters in a small galaxy, called Fornax, show that they are very similar to those found in the Milky Way, and so must have formed in a similar way.
Scientists are hoping to learn a bit more about the origins of gamma-ray bursts using some new equipment: space "microphones."
Understanding the magnetic fields of planets is important for understanding how they interact with the rest of the cosmic bodies around them. Now, scientists have developed a new method that allows them to estimate the magnetic field of a distant exoplanet.
Philae lander's mission may be complete, but Rosetta's is far from over. The spacecraft will continue its own exploration as it orbits Comet 67P/Churymov-Gerasimenko during the year as the comet approaches our sun.
Astronomers may have just discovered a black hole that was ejected from a galaxy. The researchers have spotted a mysterious object that could either be a black hole, or a giant star that's exploding over an exceptionally long period of several decades.
Astronomers have spotted an unusual alignment spread across our universe. They've discovered 93 quasars that have formed huge groupings spread over billions of light-years at a time when the universe was at a third of its current age.
