The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) has captured a spectacular, detailed image of one of the most fascinating regions of the universe. It's taken a picture of an area where clusters of hundreds of galaxies are colliding with one another.
This star puts the fastest objects in our universe to shame. Scientists have found a fast-moving unbound star that has broken the galactic speed record.
Astronomers have discovered that we're not alone. They've found several rare dwarf satellite galaxies orbiting our own Milky Way. The findings could pave the way to better understanding dark matter, the mysterious substance that holds our galaxy together.
A team of scientists have discovered something unusual at the heart of the Milky Way Galaxy. They've detected 20 rotating dust and gas discs in each cluster hosting exceptionally large and hot stars.
Astronomers have received some new, details images of the surface of Venus, which is normally shrouded by thick clouds made mostly of carbon dioxide.
Astronomers have taken a closer look at one of the most active star-forming regions in the galaxy. The new findings may give astronomers a better understanding of the process that may have helped form the sun 4.5 billion years ago.
Scientists have gained some new insights into dark energy and the theory of gravitation by analyzing data from the Planck satellite mission
A certain habitable planet may actually exist, despite prior claims. Scientists have found that a planet named GJ 581d, which was first identified in 2009 orbiting the star Gliese 581, isn't a glitch in data.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft has officially entered orbit around the dwarf planet, Ceres, as of 7:39 a.m. EST on Friday, March 6. This is the first time any spacecraft has ever achieved a successful orbit around a dwarf planet.
Settling on Mars isn't going to be easy, though plans are moving forward. Now, scientists have created an innovative new technique that may allow Martian colonists to harvest energy from carbon dioxide.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a distant supernova split into four images for the very first time. The multiple images of the exploding star are due to the powerful gravity of a foreground elliptical galaxy embedded in a massive cluster of galaxies.
It turns out that Mars may have held more water than Earth's Arctic Ocean and covered a great portion of the planet's surface than the Atlantic. Scientists have found that the Red Planet was once watery, and that it lost its ocean over time.
