With the use of NASA/ESA's Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, astronomers have solved the missing water mystery of ten Jupiter-like exoplanets.
The Hubble Space Telescope has a spiral galaxy that resembles an atomic nucleus, the galaxy was identified as 'NGC 7252' which is also known as the "Atoms for Peace" galaxy.
Astronomers have discovered a tiny star with a giant, cloudy storm that rivals that of Jupiter.
Scientists have spotted a few ancient clusters hidden behind younger stars and are understanding the beginnings of our galaxy.
Most stars born, evolve and die in similar ways. But for some stars, called binary stars, the gravitational force of their partner impacts their lives. Now, scientists are taking a closer look at a strange group of exceptions: blue stragglers.
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has captured one of the closest images of a distant Kuiper Belt object while it was moving against a background of stars.
A University of Sydney student has discovered that the dust around CW Leo, also known as IRC+10216, had astronomers fooled for many years, where they mistakenly interpreted the surrounding dust as the star system's structural elements.
What kind of stars will form rocky planets? Astronomers have taken a closer look to find patterns and features that indicate what types of planets are likely to form around different kinds of stars.
A team of astronomers have spotted several monstrous baby galaxies with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). These galaxies are in the midst of high levels of dark matter and they are approximately 11.5 billion light-years away.
For the first time ever, astronomers have detected magnetic fields just outside the event horizon of the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
Researchers have spotted the faintest galaxy from the early universe.
