A New FRB Signal Has Buzzed Nearly 2,000 Times in Two Months

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.  

Two rare super-Mercuries discovered in the same star system

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. 

Heat wave on Jupiter, from its aurora

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.

Astronomers Witness Light Delayed by Almost 7 Years

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.

DART Mission Hits Asteroid in First-Ever Planetary Defense Test

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.

We Have Our First Look at Neptune's Rings in 33 Years

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.

Analysis of particles of the asteroid Ryugu delivers surprising results

Geoscientists have now discovered areas with a massive accumulation of rare earths and unexpected structures.

Nearest Black Hole To Our Solar System Discovered

This discovery implies that there ought to be many dormant black holes spread across the Milky Way galaxy, the home of Earth.

NASA's Mars Perseverance rover finds hints of microbial life

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.

Lost Moon Could Solve Saturn's Mystery

An icy moon torn apart in Saturn’s gravitational field some 150 million years ago could explain why the planet’s rings are so young and a host of other puzzles.

Surprise finding suggests 'water planets' are more common

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.

Astronomers discover two 'super-Earths' orbiting nearby star

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.

NASA Can Now Reliably Produce a Tree's Worth of Oxygen on Mars

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.

NASA's Webb takes its first-ever direct image of distant world

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.

Chinese astronauts grow rice and cress in space

The Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) has recently reported successfully growing rice and vegetables on the Tiangong space station.
