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.
China became the first country to approve a needle-free, inhaled version of a Covid-19 vaccine. The vaccine is similar to those developed by AstraZeneca Plc and Johnson & Johnson.
A new method for entwining the fates of fragments of light has overcome some serious obstacles on the road to photon-based quantum computing.
This observation of a gas giant planet orbiting a Sun-like star 700 light-years away provides important insights into the composition and formation of the planet.
It's called TOI-1452b, and measurements of its size and mass suggest a density profile consistent with a global liquid ocean. An exoplanet is just 100 light-years from Earth
Australian astronomers have discovered one of the biggest black hole jets in the sky. Spanning more than a million light years from end to end, the jet shoots away from a black hole with enormous energy, and at almost the speed of light.
An international team of researchers studying dust samples retrieved by the Hayabusa-2 space probe, has found that some of its dust grains are older than the solar system.
At the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Steady High Magnetic Field Facility, a magnet years in development achieved a steady magnetic field of 45.22 tesla – tens of thousands of times more powerful than an souvenir fridge magnet.
A common 'forever chemical' known as PFOS (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid) has been linked to liver cancer in humans in a worrying new study.
The Miniaturized In-vivo Robotic Assistant (MIRA) is getting ready to fly to the ISS and evaluate if robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) will work in space.
A team of stem cell researchers in Israel was able to create the world’s first synthetic embryos from mice stem cells, a scientific feat that could hold the key to ending animal testing in medical research and offer new solutions to healing people.
Physicists have just caught light acting the part of 'glue' between atoms, in a kind of loosely bonded molecule.
