It turns out that there may be far more binary stars in our universe than astronomers once thought. It turns out that high-mass stars are rarely solitary, which means that heavy stars may already form as twins.
The Herschel Space Observatory has spotted a ring of dusty material while capturing one of the sharpest scans to date of a distant cloud of gas and dust, called NGC 7538.
NASA has shifted their focus of the space program and is preparing for long-duration and deep space missions. The six-person ISS Expedition 40 crew wrapped up the week after completing plentiful medical research for these types of missions.
With global warming and climate change at the forefront of the international agenda, one would think NASA had already developed some sort of advanced measurement tool to track CO2 emissions across the globe.
Astronomers have made a startling discovery with the help of a wealth of data from online archives. They've found a treasure trove of "red nugget" galaxies, revealing a bit more about the universe.
For the first time ever, astronomers have managed to directly map out the molecular gas and dust in the host galaxies of the most massive explosions in the galaxies.
Thank famous author Norman Vincent Peale for this untimely quote: "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." While it's most likely meant to inspire strength, courage and diligence, some might take these two sentences a bit more literally. At least, Cameron Read did.
Astronomers may have found out a bit more about solar wind, answering questions as to how it might break through the Earth's magnetic field.
Astronomers have found that dwarf galaxies that orbit the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxies defy the accepted model of galaxy formation and do not fit into the current model.
Scientists have discovered that the timing of the massive impact between our planet and a planet-sized body, named Theia, occurred around 40 million years after the start of the solar system. That means that the final stage of Earth's formation is about 60 million years older than previously thought...
Astronomers have solved one of the mysteries of the dark side of the moon. They've found out why there's a "face" on the Earth-facing side of the moon and why it doesn't exist on the dark side of the moon.
Could other planets support life? It's likely, and there may be more in our very own galaxy than previously thought. Astronomers have found that there are about 100 million other places in the Milky Way galaxy that could support complex life.
