Astronomers have made a somewhat unusual finding. They've found a galaxy that looks old, but exists in a young universe. The findings reveal a bit more about galaxy formation and tell them a bit more about the early universe.
NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) has spotted a stellar nursery that's essentially in the middle of nowhere. The cluster of stars is forming at the very edge of the Milky Way galaxy.
Saturn's moon, Titan, may just support life like we've never seen before. Scientists have found that it may be possible that a new type of methane-based, oxygen-free life form that can metabolize similar to life on Earth could exist on the moon.
NASA's Curiosity rover has detected an episodic increase in the concentration of methane in Mars' atmosphere.
Scientists have caught the best ever 3D glimpse of the universe with the help of the MUSE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope.
One of the most powerful events in the universe occurs when two black holes collide. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this event and have learned a bit more about what happens when two orbiting black holes become one.
It turns out that black holes may not always be turbulent. Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), researchers have discovered regions where certain organic molecules endure the intense radiation near the supermassive black hole at the center of galaxy NGC 1068, also known as ...
Scientists may have discovered the most massive black hole in the early universe to date. They've found a super bright quasar in the early universe powered by a supermassive black hole.
Stars and planets are made of particles--not antiparticles. This asymmetry, which favors matter slightly, has puzzled scientists for years. Now, though, a group of physicists may have solved this mystery
A certain comet has survived what could have been a fatal encounter with the sun. Although the comet skimmed past our nearest star on Feb. 18 to 21, it managed to continue on its way relatively intact.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken the most detailed picture yet of a large, edge-one, dusty disk encircling the 20-million-year-old star, Beta Pictoris. The new image reveals a bit more about this star and the disk that surrounds it.
This spring, Hubble will celebrate 25 years of operations at an exhibit at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. And now, former NASA astronaut and current senior advisor of space programs of the museum, Mike Massimino, has given his thoughts about the future of the telescope in an interview with HN...
