The object, named FRB 20201124A, was detected with FAST telescope in China. We still don't know the souce of these signals from space. And this recent discovery just added more to the mystery.
While observing the star system HD 23472 , researchers found three super-Earths and two super-Mercuries. This type last of exoplanet is still very rare—counting these two, there are only eight known super-Mercuries.
Researchers had discovered a “heat wave” extending across 10 Earth-diameters in the atmosphere of our solar system’s biggest planet, Jupiter. In other words, Jupiter’s atmosphere is hundreds of degrees hotter than previously thought.
Way back in 1979, astronomers discovered that cluster's mass distribution formed a lens that distorted the light. Now EU astronomers have spotted time delaying effect with another distant quasar.
After 10 months flying in space, NASA's DART mission successfully impacted its asteroid target last week - the agency's first attempt to move an asteroid in space.
The first picture of Neptune to be taken by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope reveals the latest, greatest details of the ice giant's atmosphere, moons, and rings in infrared wavelengths.
Geoscientists have now discovered areas with a massive accumulation of rare earths and unexpected structures.
NASA scientists said Thursday the Mars Perseverance rover found biologically-interesting rocks in an ancient lake bed that could indicate microbial life existed on the red planet billions of years ago.
A new study suggests that many more planets may have large amounts of water than previously thought - as much as half water and half rock. All that water is probably embedded in the rock, rather than flowing as oceans.
The astronomers underlined that the star, these planets are orbiting is the second-coolest star found to host planets after TRAPPIST-1. They added that their finding is the second-most favorable habitable-zone terrestrial planet known so far.
A machine called MOXIE, stowed away on NASA’s Perseverance rover, can reliably convert carbon dioxide into a small tree’s worth of oxygen. During various tests, MOXIE steadily breathed in Martian atmosphere and breathed out at least six grams of oxygen an hour.
The exoplanet is a gas giant, meaning it has no rocky surface and could not be habitable. The image shows how Webb's powerful infrared gaze can easily capture worlds beyond our solar system.
