Astronomers have discovered one of the most distant objects in the solar system, a mysterious dwarf planet located three times the distance of Pluto away.
The new technique has one of the fastest heating rates that have ever been performed in a lab - it is also 100 times faster than many current, high power laser systems.
After Europe experienced a solar eclipse in March of this year, researchers in Germany are trying to determine whether or not the eclipse impacted photovoltaic systems, ultimately disrupting the electrical supply across the country.
Researchers have discovered that a star, 25 times the mass of the sun, is forming, and they are now studying the the dynamic behind these types of star formations.
It turns out that massive solar storms once battered Earth about 1,000 years ago.
In a recent study, a team of astronomers found that the inner regions of stars are strongly magnetized. The new findings will help astronomers better understand the the life and death of stars.
For the first time ever, researchers have caught a movie that shows the evolution of stellar spots on a star outside our solar system.
Scientists have presented findings from six years of direct observations made by NASA's interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission of the interstellar wind that blows through our solar system.
A massive coronal hole in our sun has been captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Now, this hole is causing some auroral displays on Earth.
The aurora can be one of the most beautiful natural light displays on Earth with wavering lines of blue, green, purple and pink. Now, scientists have learned a bit more about this phenomenon.
Babies born in the summer are more likely to be healthier than those born in in other seasons, according to a recent study. It dawned on the researchers--it's probably all that sun.
