A newly discovered exoplanet is sitting an unusual distance from its star-16 times farther than Pluto is from the sun.
Scientists have caught their first ever glimpse of a supermassive black hole eating a star. The new findings could be huge when it comes to better understanding supermassive black holes.
Scientists may have uncovered the hottest white dwarf in the galaxy. With a temperature that's a staggering 250,000 degrees Celsius, the dying star has already entered its cooling phase.
The solar system may be a lot hairier than we thought. Scientists have found that there may be long filaments, or "hairs," of dark matter around Earth and our solar system.

In a study researchers found that a large number of earth-like planets are becoming uninhabitable due to harsh amounts of radiation.
The new finding is allowing the researchers to examine the galaxies' building blocks. The researchers have manged to explore the structure, formation and the evolution of galaxies through the new finding.
