The colossal ‘Tasmanian devil’ exploding in space

Last year, global astronomers picked up evidence of an explosion called a luminous fast blue optical transient, or LFBOT. But the bizarre thing about this explosion was that it kept exploding.

Ultra-Fast Radio Bursts Detected Lasting Only Millionths of a Second

A recent study examines the discovery of what astronomers are dubbing "ultra-fast radio bursts", a new type of fast radio bursts (FRBs) that the team determined lasts for a mind-boggling ten millionths of a second or less.

"Starquakes" could explain mystery signals

Fast radio bursts, or FRBs, are an astronomical mystery, with their exact cause and origins still unconfirmed. A recent research found several notable similarities between FRBs and earthquakes.

Hubble finds bizarre explosion in unexpected place

A very rare, strange burst of extraordinarily bright light in the universe just got even stranger. The phenomenon, called a Luminous Fast Blue Optical Transient (LFBOT), flashed onto the scene where it wasn't expected to be found.

Newly Discovered World Challenges Our Understanding of Planets

TOI-4860b happens to orbit a tiny star, completing each lap in just 1.52 days. It joins a small number of worlds that pose a fascinating puzzle - there are currently no known formation pathways for such chonkin' planets around such small stars.

There could still be a ninth planet in our solar system

This hypothetical planet is provisionally known as Planet 9. Computer simulations show it must be a very large planet, consisting of between four and eight times the mass of the Earth and at least ten times the distance of Pluto.

Another Object Emitting Strange Radio Signals in Our Galaxy

A strange radio signal pulsing from a spot 15,000 light-years away could point to an unconfirmed type of star.

What are mysterious "structures" found in the Milky Way

A survey of the galaxy has revealed hundreds of mysterious cosmic threads pointing towards the supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way. The filaments stretch five to ten light years through space.

Largest-Ever Cosmic Explosion Has Raged for Years

The explosive event labeled AT2021lwx was observed to be ten times brighter than any known supernova. This thing we have never, ever seen before – it just came out of nowhere.

Surprise Magnetic Signal May Finally Solve The Mystery of Fast Radio Bursts

In a new research scientists observed a repeating fast radio burst for more than a year and discovered signs it is surrounded by a strong but highly changeable magnetic field.

A cosmic object 10 million times brighter than the Sun breaks the laws of Physics

There’s a celestial body in the galaxy messier 82also known as the Cigar Galaxywhich emits 10 million times more light than the Sun. According to the laws of Physics,this is only possible if the body is about to explode. 

Astronomers found 25 more repeating radio signals from space

In new research, a Canadian-led team of astronomers turned up another 25 repeating FRBs, doubling the number already discovered.

Astronomers solve the 60-year mystery of quasars

Scientists have unlocked one of the biggest mysteries of quasars—the brightest, most powerful objects in the universe—by discovering that they are ignited by galaxies colliding.

Astronomers Find 25 Fast Radio Bursts That Keep Repeating

Of the over 1,000 FRBs detected to date, only 29 were identified as repeating. The nature of fast radio bursts is still unknown.

Physicists Claim Wormholes May Have Been Detected

A team of scientists from the University in Bulgaria say they have developed a novel new method that could help scientists differentiate between black holes and hypothetical wormholes.
