Researchers have discovered that a rapidly spinning asteroid is actually a pile of rubble held together by Van der Waals forces. This may change how we approach defending against asteroids in the future.
Astronomers have finally determined that black hole jets are composed of matter, rather than a combination of matter and antimatter particles.
A new theory shows that a single star could collapse into two black holes, providing an explanation for how super-massive black holes existed in the early universe.
A telescope in Hawaii has detected a planet floating freely without a solar system 80 light years away. Its lack of a star is even more noteworthy as the planet is estimated to be very young.
A new method for measuring the spin of supermassive black holes could help astronomers better understand how the black holes drive the growth of galaxies.
The Indian army spent roughly six months watching and documenting what they thought were two Chinese spy drones, but were actually the planets Jupiter and Venus.
One day the sun will die. When that happens, it’ll be quite a dramatic sight to see. Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope we have a picture of what that might look like.
The sun, despite being in the peak of its 11 year cycle, is behaving rather timidly.
Astronomers have, for the first time, managed to determine the exact hue of a distant exoplanet; a gas giant some 63 lightyears away.
About 10,000 light years away from Earth, one of the soon to be largest stars in the galaxy is forming. Astronomers have gotten an unprecedented look at the birth.
Astronomers in Australia have encountered several massive radio blasts coming from outside the galaxy; explosions of unknown origin.
