Scientists have found out that black holes may be more ravenous than expected. They've registered three possible occasions of the total destruction of stars by supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies.
A new model reveals how early black holes could have grown to masses over a billion times that of our own sun.
Scientists have discovered that there is an extremely soft layer deep inside the moon and that the heat is effectively generated in the layer by the gravity of Earth, revealing that the moon may just have a hot interior.
This weekend may be your chance to see one of the most spectacular moons of this year. On the evening of Sunday, August 10, you'll get an opportunity to see the most super of "supermoons" of 2014.
People on Earth aren't the only ones that sometimes have trouble sleeping. Scientists have found that astronauts can suffer considerable sleep deficiency in the weeks leading up to and during space flight.
Scientists are learning a bit more about the violent history of our solar system. By studying a unique volcanic meteorite recovered from Western Australia, scientists have found out that a series of collisions of asteroids occurred more than 3.4 billion years ago.
The big bang may have jumpstarted our universe, but what exactly sparked it? That's a question that has long puzzled scientists. Now, though, they may have a new idea concerned what helped trigger the very beginnings of our universe.
Researchers have discovered extremely small habitats in an asphalt lake that may just increase the potential for life on other worlds while at the same time offering a way to clean up oil spills on our own.
Understanding the birth of our sun has long been a source of study for researchers. Now, they may be a step closer. Scientists have investigated the solar system's prehistoric phase and the events that led to the birth of the sun.
The loneliest supernovae in the universe are likely created by the collisions of white dwarf stars and neutron stars--at least, that's what a new study suggests.
Astronomers have spotted a stream of gas that's a staggering 2.6 million light years long with the help of the William E. Gordon Telescope.
