To this point, J0613+52 is unlike any other galaxy discovered in the universe. What we do know is that it’s an incredibly gas rich galaxy and its not demonstrating any star formation.
In a magnificent first, we finally have direct observational evidence of the stellar process that produces neutron stars and black holes.
A strange star in the Milky Way bares the signature of a unique explosion of a giant star that once existed billions of years ago in the era of the cosmic dawn.
A large number of supernovas are mysteriously devoid of hydrogen – suggesting that there must also be a significant population of hydrogen-poor stars from whence such supernovas come.
On the 14th of December our star unleashed an X-class solar flare. Solar physicists classify strong flares into three categories, with C being the weakest, M the middling group and X the most potent.
A team using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has identified the new record-holder: a tiny, free-floating brown dwarf with only three to four times the mass of Jupiter.
It’s the first time such a disc, identical to those forming planets in our own Milky Way, has ever been found outside our galaxy.
A stunning river of stars has been spotted flowing through the intergalactic space in a cluster of galaxies about 300 million light years away.
The discovery of phosphorus in a molecular cloud at the edge of the Milky Way galaxy extends the presence of the element almost twice as far out as where it was known to exist.
Scientists have observed the creation of rare chemical elements in the second-brightest gamma-ray burst ever seen -- casting new light on how heavy elements are made.
For the first time, artificial intelligence (AI) has searched for, detected, confirmed, classified, and announced a supernova discovery without any human intervention.
The energy of these gamma rays clocked in at 20 tera-electronvolts, or about ten trillion times the energy of visible light.
After years of dedicated research and over 5 million supercomputer computing hours, a team has created the world's first high-resolution 3D radiation hydrodynamics simulations for exotic supernovae.
An international team of astronomers have identified a powerful magnetic field in the Wolf-Rayet star HD 45166, the exposed helium core of a star that has lost its outer layers of hydrogen.
