We’ve discovered a number of “lava planets” or “magma worlds” throughout the Milky Way. These planets are in such close proximity to their stars that their surface is literally melted into a perpetual ocean of lava.
According to a new U.S. research it appears that the Universe is actually getting hotter as time goes on. The mean temperature of cosmic gas has increased more than 10 times and reached about 2.2 million K.
Until now, the source of Fast Radio Bursts was a mystery. Now astronomers at multiple institutions have pinpointed the FRB spotted in the Milky Way and conclude it most likely was generated by a magnetar.
New work reveals the likely original locations of Saturn and Jupiter. These findings refine our understanding of the Solar System's unusual architecture, including the ejection of an additional planet between Saturn and Uranus.
Recently, an international team of scientists, combined data from Kepler Space Telescope and Gaia Observatory revealed is that half of the Sun-like stars in our Universe could have rocky, potentially-habitable planets.
NASA has confirmed, for the first time, water on the sunlit surface of the Moon. This discovery indicates that water may be distributed across the lunar surface, and not limited to cold, shadowed places.
Previous research has shown that Io's atmosphere is dominated by sulfur dioxide gas. Now, astronomers could, for the first time, clearly see the plumes of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and sulfur monoxide (SO) rise up from the volcanoes.
NASA's asteroid sampling aircraft OSIRIS-REx, which touched asteroid Bennu last week, has collected such abundant quantity of asteroid particles that it is jammed open and these particles are leaking slowly in the space.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket fired 60 more Starlink internet relay satellites into orbit Sunday from the Kennedy Space Center with another set awaiting launch Wednesday from the nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Astronomers have found six galaxies lying around a supermassive black hole when the Universe was less than a billion years old. This is the first time such a close grouping has been seen so soon after the Big Bang.
