A team of astronomers have found evidence that main-belt asteroid, 493 Griseldis, collided with another space object earlier this year. The researchers made their observations using the Subaru Telescope.
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.
Want to see a spectacular show this week? Then make sure to look up. The Leonid meteor shower is peaking this week, though you should have the chance of seeing "shooting stars" all week long.
For the first time researchers have captured an image of an asteroid ripped apart to form a star's glowing ring system. The white dwarf star was identified as SDSS1228+1040, by researchers from the University of Warwick's Astrophysics Group.
NASA has spotted one of the most energetic pulsars ever to be seen outside our Milky Way galaxy.
Since the late 1980s, researchers have discovered nearly 5,000 planetary bodies orbiting stars other than the sun. Now, scientists have defined what should be called a planet and what shouldn't be.
A new, Venus-like planet has been found in our cosmic neighborhood. The newfound world, as hot as an oven, may just be cool enough to host an atmosphere and is only 39 light-years away.
A team of researchers from the Australian National University have discovered some of the oldest stars near Milky Way center. The researchers made the discovery using the ANU SkyMapper telescope.
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.
The Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered a bit more about the early stages of our galaxy's construction. They've found the fading cinders of some of our galaxy's earliest homesteaders.
NASA researchers discovered a new galaxy cluster located 8.5 billion light years away. This is one of the most massive galaxy structures found at such a great distance, according to the researchers.
