After watching aurorae glowing above Jupiter's moon, Ganymede, scientists believe that the world may possess an underground ocean.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has revealed some startling new findings about Saturn's moon, Enceladus. It's shown that the moon exhibits signs of hydrothermal activity, which may be similar to what is seen in the deep oceans on Earth.
It turns out that the Milky Way galaxy is a bit larger than expected. After re-examining the data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, scientists have found that our galaxy is at least 50 percent larger than commonly estimated.
Scientists have captured a spectacular new image of the southern constellation of Ara with the help of the VLT Survey Telescope in Chile.
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
