Astronomers have discovered faint plumes extending from a nearby spiral galaxy, revealing unprecedented details about this object. The findings could tell researchers a bit more about spiral galaxies in general.
In March of last year, scientists announced that they had observed the portion of cosmic background radiation, which is the fossil radiation from the Big Bang, generated by gravitational waves. Now, scientists have announced that more evidence is needed.
Mining isn't a new concept. But can you imagine mining the moon? It's not all that farfetched, according to researchers. It's possible that the moon could be mined in the future for its resources.
Scientists have found that spaceflight may be associated with the accelerated aging of the immune system.
Scientists have found that some galaxies die young. It turns out that galaxies can die early because the gas they need to make new stars is suddenly ejected.
A meteorite that was discovered in the Moroccan desert may just represent large swathes of the Martian crust.
It turns out that Saturn's largest moon, Titan, behaves a lot like Mars and Venus. Scientists have studied data from NASA's Cassini mission and have found that unmagnetized bodies like Titan may interact with the solar wind in the same basic ways, despite their distance from the sun.
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured two galaxies in the midst of what appears to be a galactic collision.
Scientists have taken a closer look at one of the most well studied supernova remnants in our galaxy, Cassiopeia A. They've created a new 3D map of its interior that reveals surprising, never-before-seen details about the supernova.
There may be a new way to improve weather forecasts. Scientists have found that the key to a better prediction may actually lie within examining the soil.
Two phenomena that are known to actually inhibit the habitability of planets may actually help chances for life. Scientists have found that tidal forces and vigorous stellar activity may promote life on certain planets orbiting low-mass stars.
ESO's Very Large Telescope has captured a spectacular new image of the cometary globule CG4, which glows in fiery reds and oranges in the photo. This faint object is actually a nebula, and was first spotted in 1976.
