New research suggest the universe is about 13.8 billion years old, according to researchers using observations from the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) ...

Breakthrough in Deciphering Birth of Supermassive Black Holes

Scientists say they are closer to understanding how a supermassive black hole (SMBH) is born thanks to a new technique that has enabled them to zoom in on one of these enigmatic cosmic objects in ...

Fleeting Flash Is Most-Distant Optical Afterglow from Gamma-Ray Burst Ever Detected

Rapid follow-up of the optical afterglow from one of the most distant confirmed short gamma-ray bursts (SGRB), thought to be the merger of two ...

Artificial Intelligence Predicts Which Planetary Systems Will Survive

An astrophysicist has found a new method for determining the long-term stability of planetary configurations that is up to 100,000 times faster than the previous approach. This breaks the ...

In a First, Astronomers Watch a Black Hole's Corona Disappear, Then Reappear

It seems the universe has an odd sense of humor. While a crown-encrusted virus has run roughshod over the world, another entirely different corona about 100 million light years from Earth has ...

Hidden Sources of Mysterious Cosmic Neutrinos Seen on Earth

A new model points to the coronoe of supermassive black holes at the cores of active galaxies to help explain the excess neutrinos observed by the IceCube Neutrino ...

NASA's TESS Delivers New Insights Into an Ultrahot World

KELT-9 b is one of the hottest planets known. New measurements from NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) have enabled astronomers to greatly improve their understanding of this ...

On a quest to find the Universe's largest black holes, researchers identify the center of the solar system within 100 ...

Astronomers have discovered the absence of an unstable massive star in a dwarf galaxy. Scientists think this could indicate that the star became less bright and partially obscured by dust. An ...

Super-Earths Discovered Orbiting Nearby Red Dwarf

The nearest exoplanets to us provide the best opportunities for study, including searching for evidence of life outside the Solar System. Astronomers have now detected a system of super-Earth planets ...

Astronomers have discovered the second-most distant quasar ever found. It is the first quasar to receive an indigenous Hawaiian name, Poniua'ena. Data show the supermassive black hole powering ...

Hubble Watches the 'Flapping' of Cosmic Bat Shadow in the Serpens Nebula

The young star HBC 672 is known by its nickname of Bat Shadow because of its wing-like shadow feature. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has now observed a curious ''flapping'' ...

Rogue's Gallery of Dusty Star Systems Reveals Exoplanet Nurseries

The Gemini Planet Imager on the Gemini South telescope looked at 104 young, nearby stars, 10-100 million years old, in search of debris disks. It found 26, 25 of which had inner holes indicating a ...

The discovery could help astronomers understand how planets like Earth form and ...

New Research Hints at the Presence of Unconventional Galaxies Containing 2 Black Holes

Astronomers have identified periodic gamma-ray emissions from 11 active galaxies, paving the way for future studies of unconventional galaxies that might harbor two supermassive black holes at their ...

Quasar Jets Are Particle Accelerators Thousands of Light-Years Long

An international collaboration bringing together over 200 scientists from 13 countries has shown that the very high-energy gamma-ray emission from quasars is not concentrated in the region close to ...

A team of astronomers has picked up on a curious, repeating rhythm of fast radio bursts emanating from an unknown source outside our galaxy, 500 million light years ...

4,000th Comet Discovered by ESA and NASA Solar Observatory

On June 15, 2020, a citizen scientist spotted a never-before-seen comet in data from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO -- the 4,000th comet discovery in the spacecraft's 25-year ...

Using Sunlight to Save Satellites from a Fate of 'Space Junk'

Satellites are almost always illuminated by the sun, apart from short transitions to Earth's shadow. The light that a satellite reflects can help reveal the solution to a structural ...

Insight Into the Black Hole at the Center of Our Galaxy

Like most galaxies, the Milky Way hosts a supermassive black hole at its center. The object has captured astronomers' curiosity for decades. And now there is an effort to image it ...

New Distance Measurements Bolster Challenge to Basic Model of Universe

A cosmic measurement technique independent of all others adds strong evidence pointing to a problem with the current theoretical model describing the composition and evolution of the ...

Black Hole's Heart Still Beating

The first confirmed heartbeat of a supermassive black hole is still going strong more than ten years after first being ...

Astronomers have discovered that emissions from an object known as a repeating Fast Radio Burst follow a cyclic pattern repeating every 157 ...
