The most precise measurement to date of the strength of gravitational interactions between distant galaxies have shown perfect consistency with General Relativity's predictions.
Astronomers have made some new and surprising discoveries in the first images taken by the Dark Energy Survey (DES). They've spotted rare, superluminous supernova that erupted in a galaxy located 7.8 billion light years away.
We all know that Earth can have a spell of bad weather, but did you know that our sun can have the same? Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this bad weather, revealing a bit more about the processes that shape our nearest star.
Astronomers have spotted an unusual series of eruptions form the sun, thanks to a suite of spacecraft.
Astronomers are learning more about the Milky Way than ever before. They've created a detailed, 3D map of the dusty structure as seen from Earth's northern hemisphere. The new map could help astronomers in future studies of this region of space.
Scientists have found that the Large Magellanic Cloud is made up of a group of organic chemicals that are considered to be carcinogens and pollutants on Earth, but could also be the building blocks of the origins of life.
Scientists have found evidence that nitrogen in the moon's atmosphere originated in conditions similar to the cold birthplace of the most ancient comets from the Oort cloud, revealing a bit more about the origins of both Saturn and Titan.
A team of astronomers have identified a remarkably coldest and faintest white dwarf star ever detected that is approximately 11 billion years old.
Astronomers have created a new stellar scale as a type of "ruler" that they can use to investigate the atmospheric structure and chemical make-up of stars, making it far easier to classify and compare data on star discoveries.
Scientists may have discovered something new about the Red Planet's atmosphere. Satellite-acquired data reveals that dust particles in Mars' atmosphere actually consist of two types, revealing a bit more about the planet.
Using Cassini, astronomers have found a strange and mysterious geologic feature on Saturn's moon, Titan. Scientists have found a "Magic Island" that seems to appear and disappear, depending on certain conditions.
Astronomers have learned a bit more about Jupiter's moons using the Subaru Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope. They've found that these satellites remain slightly bright, even when in the shadow of the massive Jupiter.
