ALMA has made a startling new discovery. It's detected an extremely powerful magnetic field at the core of a galaxy, close to the event horizon of a supermassive black hole.
Giant galaxies may actually die from the inside out. Astronomers have shown for the first time how star formation in "dead" galaxies sputtered out billions of years ago.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft has captured a startling new color map of the dwarf planet Ceres.
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is just three months away from returning the first-ever close up images of Pluto and its system of moons. The new information should shed new insights into this distant, cold planet.
Scientists have long focused on how the aurora's shimmering curtains of colors are formed, but have struggled to explain the dark patches between the bright beams. Now, scientists have found what happens at the heart of these so-called "black aurora."
Dark matter may not be nearly as ghostly or as "dark" as once thought.
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has helped spot one of the most distant planets known to date. Located about 13,000 light-years away, the remote gas planet reveals the true capabilities of Spitzer.
The search for life in other galaxies continues. After a search of 100,000 galaxies, though, astronomers still haven't found an obvious signs of extraterrestrial life.
Scientists have released the first map of dark matter of the cosmos.
Mars may just have liquid water. Scientist have found that it's possible the liquid water could exist close to the surface of the Red Planet.
Saturn's largest moon, Titan, may have extremely violent methane storms, which may solve the mystery about the direction of the moon's dunes.
Researchers have taken a closer look at the interplay between planets and stars, and have found that stars may actually rip oxygen from potentially habitable planets, making them unlivable.
