There may be a new way to map the cosmos in 3D. Scientists have proposed a new way to calculate the distances of the cosmos using mysterious bursts of energy.
Scientists may have discovered a new, mid-sized black hole, which is huge in the world of astronomy. Before now, researchers have only spotted black holes in two sizes: supermassive and tiny.
It'll still be two weeks before we can see Ridley Scott's The Martian here on Earth. But astronauts are getting some special treatment.
The latest images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft are truly spectacular. The new images show a backlit Pluto, revealing the icy planet's massive mountains, streams of frozen nitrogen and haunting low-lying hazes.
